Chicago coach Matt Nagy wants to play fast. He has the personnel on offense to do so. The issue becomes two-fold -- does he slow down the offense with Jordan Howard, and can Mitchell Trubisky make the crucial plays in the passing game to be successful? Seattle played poorly on offense, particularly Russell Wilson with the turnovers. However, you have to figure that last week was more of the aberration for him and he'll get back to the good, consistent Wilson we've seen over the course of his career. Take the points.

Thu 9/13

This game will feature two really good defenses and run games. Dallas will be excellent on that side of the ball, as will the Giants, at least down the middle of their defense. Where the Cowboys can have success is attacking the edge in the running game. That's where the Giants struggled in the preseason, and in Week 1 vs. Jacksonville. The passing game for both teams is still a work in progress, but if it comes down to talent, the Giants have the advantage there. But the x-factor will be which QB can you trust to get out of pressure in a crucial situation, and that leans toward the Cowboys and Dak Prescott.

Thu 9/13

I was at the Jags-Giants game last week and the Jaguars' defense is still excellent. Their offense is still all running game, it was the Fournette show early before he left with a hamstring injury, and then T.J. Yeldon afterwards. Blake Bortles is still the weakest link on that side of the ball, and the receivers aren't the same explosive crew they were to start the season. This one will look like the rematch of last year's AFC title game in every way.
