Before we get to the main entrée, we have a few games on the docket this morning. Bill Belichick benched Mac Jones. Today, he’ll start Bailey Zappe against the Chargers.
Gardner Minshew and the Colts are road favorites against Will Levis and the Titans. This feels like one of those Mike Vrabel specials.
Jared Goff and the Lions have come back down to earth a bit recently. They’re on the road to face the New Orleans Saints, who are suffering from injuries themselves. Another Lions loss wouldn’t hurt for the 49ers.
Kyler Murray is on the road and will face Kenny Pickett and the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game where the Steelers are favored by nearly a touchdown. Expect Murray to have to run for his life in this one.
Finally, C.J. Stroud looks to burst the balloon of Denver as the Broncos winning streak comes to an end today.
