3 of 7

Raiders over Bears, 24-13.

Everything is working for the Raiders right now. Amari Cooper is statistically one of the best wideouts in football, Latavius Murray is providing consistent beef in the rushing attack and Derek Carr is skyrocketing up the NFL’s quarterbacking ranks. Things have been so good in Oakland that Charles Woodson even made a pick in Week 3, his 18th season in a row with an interception (only one other guy has done that—Darrell Green).

Meanwhile, the Bears are probably the worst team in the NFL. The offense is a mess, the defense is a mess. Giving the Bears 13 points in this predictions is honestly pretty generous.

Chiefs over Bengals, 30-29.

The Week 4 thriller will take place in Cincinnati. The Bengals’ annual hot start will encounter its annual cold shower when the Chiefs come to town. The arrowheads clawed back against the Packers on Monday night, indicating that they have the firepower to keep pace with the best offenses in the NFL.

Now that he’s finally connected with a wide receiver for a touchdown for the first time since 2013, Alex Smith ought to come out firing against the Bengals. And the Bengals will fire right back, making this the game of the day. Keep an eye on this one.
