After a 28-24 defeat last time against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Baltimore Ravens will be determined to get back to winning ways on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts have made progress this season and won’t be an easy nut to crack but Indianapolis could be on the end of a backlash at Lucas Oil Stadium this weekend.
Ground Game Will Be the Key
Sunday’s showdown, between two AFC Championship teams with a 5-2 record, looks like it will come down to who wins the ground battle.
Baltimore lead the NFL in rushing at 178.7 yards per game, while the Colts defense is the second meanest in the league in that category, conceding on average 79.9 yards per game.
J.K. Dobbins has impressed with the ball in hand this season and the running back will have played a big role if his side are to pick up the win on the road, for which they are
4/5 on the moneyline.
Giants Can Continue Winning Run
New York have a strong record against Washington and, despite their injury problems, the Giants might be able to edge their NFC East encounter in the capital.
The Giants have won all of their last four meetings with Washington, including a 20-19 win over the Football Team earlier this season.
Ignoring that win over Washington, New York have been the nearly men in recent weeks, suffering defeats to the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
However, the Giants lost each of those games by three points or less, just showing how competitive they have been without actually getting over the line.
That can change this weekend against a Washington side that might be a little undercooked after a runaway win against a Dak Prescott-less Dallas last time out.
Bears to End Losing Streak
It has been a tough couple of weeks for Chicago but the Bears can get back to winning ways on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Defeats to both the LA Rams and New Orleans Saints in their last two outings have put a dent in the Bears charge after a promising start to the season.
With quarterback Nick Foles in the pocket, and a mean defence, the Bears made a habit of winning ugly at the start of the campaign.
Although they have somewhat lost their way in recent weeks, they can feel confident of getting back to winning ways at a happy hunting ground at the Titans.
The Bears have won on all of their last three visits to Tennessee and Chicago are
49/20 to cause an upset against a Titans side that were beaten 31-20 by the Cincinnati Bengals in their last outing.
