Late Afternoon/Primetime Games

San Diego at Oakland (4:05 p.m.)
Branden Oliver RB SD
Oliver went off against the Jets for 114 yards, one TD and 4 receptions for 68 yards and 1 receiving TD. Expect Oliver to have a good performance against the Raiders and their dismal run defense.
Projection: 100 yards rushing, 1 TD

Chicago at Atlanta (4:25 p.m.)
Jay Cutler QB CHI
Cutler is going to cut through the Falcons’ offense like a knife through butter. Atlanta’s defense is horrible, and the Bears have a very talented receiving core.
Projection: 350 yards, 2 TDs

Oct 6, 2014; Landover, MD, USA; Seattle Seahawks running back

Marshawn Lynch

(24) scores a touchdown as Washington Redskins strong safety

Dallas at Seattle (4:25 p.m.)
Marshawn Lynch RB SEA
The Dallas defense has been playing a lot better than advertised, but Seattle is going to be too much for the Cowboys. The Seahawks are going to lean on Lynch to run out the clock during the latter part of the game.
Projection: 130 yards rushing, 2 TDs

Washington at Arizona (4:25 p.m.)
John Brown WR AZ
Drew Stanton, QB Arizona, loves to pepper Brown with targets. Washington is going to have problems with Brown’s speed, and they have to concentrate on wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. Brown is going to eat in this game!
Projection: 6 receptions, 100 yards, TD

NY Giants at Philadelphia (8:30 p.m.)
Odell Beckham WR NYG
This game is going to be high-scoring, and the Giants offense is getting a lot better compared to earlier this season. This is Beckham’s second career game. He is very athletic and will do a lot with his targets.
Projection: 4 receptions, 70 yards, 1 TD

Monday Night Football
San Francisco at St. Louis (8:30 p.m.)
Frank Gore RB SF
Gore is going to shoulder the load this week against the Rams. Expect him to get looks in the red zone and a steady amount of touches during the game.
Projection: 85 yards, 2 TD
