Bengals @ Patriots
Tom Brady still hasn’t played a full game this year in the NFL season, but he didn’t disappoint his fans last week when he threw for 400 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Bengals are a bit more of a challenge than the Browns were last week, it will be one of the only very exciting games this week in the NFL. Although the Bengals sit at 2-3 on the season, they are still a threat with a solid defense and a sometimes high-powered offense. The Patriots; however, will look to continue performing well and I expect nothing less this week.

Eagles @ Redskins
The Eagles got their first loss last week and also Carson Wentz had his first career interception. Maybe this week against the Redskins they can redeem themselves, but the Skins have been playing teams well so far this year. Wentz and crew are somehow still struggling to prove to the masses that they’re legit this year (although I think they deserve the attention), so a strong comeback win this week is crucial.
Prediction: Eagles win

Chiefs @ Raiders
The Chiefs have a chance to revive their season against one of the worst defenses in the league but the overall best team in the AFC West this week. The Raiders have a chance to keep the high rolling, and maybe they can finally prove to people that they’re a legit force to be reckoned with this year. Overall, this could be a very interesting game as the Raiders offensive attack refuses to slow down against a traditionally strong defense. Similarly, the Raiders defense could gain the attention they were expected to have this season against a slower-paced offense.
Prediction: Raiders win

Jets @ Cardinals
The Monday Night game this week looks to be a good one, as Arizona Cardinals face off against the New York Jets in what could be a great game in Todd Bowles returning back to Arizona. The Cardinals are playing without Carson Palmer but still look to be one of the best teams in the NFL after beating the 49ers last week in a high scoring affair. The Jets only have 1 win under their belt, but still have a roster that could turn out to scare teams later on in the season. If they want to make the season worthwhile, they need to start winning soon.
