The San Francisco 49ers get going at 1:05 p.m. PT, and in the meantime, we have a less than stellar mix of games starting at 10 a.m. I imagine some of these will work out well, but there’s a lot of mediocre football teams squaring off.
The Packers-Saints game is a fascinating one. Aaron Rodgers is out with a broken collarbone, and Brett Hundley is making his first NFL start. The line swung wildly to the Saints, but it’s hard to trust them on the road. I think the Packers will cover the spread.
The most important for the 49ers is Cleveland hosting Tennessee. The Browns remain winless alongside the 49ers, and the two teams are fighting for that top draft pick. The Browns don’t have many chances to win games this season, so we’ll see what they can do at home against Tennessee. I think Derrick Henry is going to have no problem running them over.
