Jacksonville Jaguars @ Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings defense is deep and talented. Their head coach is a defensive guru and their team is most effective in base packages. Keeping it vanilla will not mean much to the outcome of this game. Look for the Vikings to dominate the lackluster Jacksonville offense, which features the worst quarterback room in the pros. Also, I won’t be surprised when Minnesota hangs some points on that defense. After all, Kirk Cousins is one of the few quarterbacks Jalen Ramsey has any respect for. 

Oakland Raiders @ Los Angeles Rams

Look for a continued, conservative strategy from Sean McVay in regards to resting his players.  Week one was all about finding where he had the most depth and who might make a surprise roster spot. I don’t feel he needs to find out too much about his regular contributors, so look for much of the same, just in a slightly smaller dose. The Raiders will win this game because they will have better athletes on the field and for longer.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Dallas Cowboys

Dallas still has some soul searching to do in identifying who will step up without a veteran presence on offense like Jason Witten or Dez Bryant. Look for them to utilize Michael Gallop more and more, combined with the explosive play of Cole Beasley and Tavon Austin. The traditional depth is just not there with this team though. The only place the Cowboys have reasonable depth is on the defensive side of the ball.

San Francisco 49ers @ Houston Texans

The Niners are getting solid play from their ones and twos in the backfield as well as from rookie Dante Pettis. Look for this to continue as Kyle Shanahan still gets his feelers out there for his new offensive weapons in Pettis and Jerrick McKinnon out of the backfield.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Tennessee Titans

Look for the Buccaneers to attempt to prove that Dirk Koetter deserves his job. More desperate to win and show the fan base something, Koetter may open more of the playbook up and keep starters in a little too long. Hopefully, this doesn’t result in injuries, but all in all, I feel the pressures will elevate the Bucs to a win over a team with much less pressure.

Seattle Seahawks @ Los Angeles Chargers

The Seahawks will likely be without rookie running back, Rashaad Penny, so look for C.J. Procise and Mike Davis to carry the load for most of the game. The Chargers have been dominant with the number one defense through the first week of the preseason.  Their combination of defensive depth and veteran leadership on offense will deliver the Bolts a win. The specific matchup, for me, to watch is the Seahawks offensive line versus the relentless pass rush of the Chargers, a clear mismatch.

Those are some of our favorite weekend games in the National Football League.
