NY Giants @ Denver

Broncos -11.5 Points

Over/Under 39.5 Points

Somehow, the New York Giants’ season just keeps getting worse. The Giants were 0-4 heading into last week’s game against the Chargers, also 0-4, when things took another tumble. Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a fractured ankle and he will likely miss the remainder of the regular season. Yes, the Giants lost, 27-22, for their fifth straight defeat of the season. This is fresh off an 11-5 year in which the Giants earned a wild card. Now, they head to Denver to face the 3-1 Broncos who are coming off a bye week.

The problems on offense for New York stem from an inability to run the football. The Giants average 77.8 rushing yards per game, 30th in the NFL. Without the ability to run the ball, teams can rush QB Eli Manning and the results produce just 16 points per game for the Giants. With their best offensive player now out, things might even get worse. If Beckham’s injury wasn’t enough, receivers Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard both left last Sunday’s game with ankle injuries.

For Denver, running the football has helped QB Trevor Siemian to grow up in the Broncos offense. Denver averages 143 yards per game and RB C.J. Anderson is fourth the league in rushing with 330 yards. Siemian has been efficient completing 62.7 percent of his passes and has thrown more touchdowns (7) than interceptions (4).

The Denver defense appears to be back to Super Bowl form yielding just 260.8 total yards per game, tops in the NFL. Teams average just 50.8 rushing yards against the Broncos. That is not what the Giants want to hear, but if Manning is going to have any success they will have to find a way to run the ball.

Denver has beaten the Giants three of the past four times the two teams have met. They last played in 2013 when Denver scored a 41-23 win at MetLife Stadium.

Pittsburgh @ Kansas City

Chiefs -5 Points

Over/Under 46 Points

The last remaining unbeaten in the NFL gets a rematch of its divisional playoff game last season when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. The Steelers came to Kansas City last year and earned an 18-16 victory and a trip to the AFC championship. Now, Pittsburgh comes to Arrowhead on the heels of a huge loss to Jacksonville in Week 5.

Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions last week and two were returned by Jacksonville for touchdowns in a 30-9 loss. When Roethlisberger throws picks, the Steelers lose. It’s pretty simple for Pittsburgh. Don’t turn the ball over and the Steelers will have a chance for success.

The Chiefs have the NFL’s best offense right now averaging 32.8 points per game. They can thank the league’s second-best rushing attack for that. Rookie Kareem Hunt has been spectacular rushing for 609 yards and four touchdowns. He also 16 receptions for 166 yards and two more scores. Hunt, WR Tyreek Hill (356 yards, 2 TDs), and QB Alex Smith (1,391 yards, 11 TDs) have led Kansas City to its best start in recent years.

The bad news for the Chiefs is that they may be without TE Travis Kelce and WR Chris Conley was lost for the season when he tore his Achilles tendon last week. Kelce will have to pass the league’s concussion protocol in order to play this week. He suffered a hard hit in the second quarter of last week’s win over Houston.

The Chiefs defense has been suspect at times. They did give up 34 points last week to the Texans and Pittsburgh has the kinds of weapons that can put up points by the dozens. Running back Le’Veon Bell (371 yards) and WR Antonio Brown (545 yards receiving) have been relatively quiet thus far this season. The Kansas City defense will have to keep them quiet.

The two teams have played in each of the last three regular seasons. Pittsburgh is 2-1, but both victories came at home. The Steelers lost at Arrowhead 23-13 back in 2015.

Philadelphia @ Carolina

Panthers -3 Points

Over/Under 45.5 Points

On Thursday night, the Eagles and Panthers will get to challenge each other for NFC supremacy. Both teams enter Thursday with 4-1 records. Carolina is coming off back-to-back impressive victories over the Patriots (33-30) and the Lions (27-24). The Panthers defense is solid and QB Cam Newton is on a roll.

Philadelphia’s only loss thus far is to the NFL’s only unbeaten, Kansas City, back in Week 2. The Eagles have three consecutive wins thanks to the improved play of second-year quarterback Carson Wentz. Last year’s No. 2 overall pick has 1,362 yards passing and 10 touchdowns so far. In last week’s 34-7 win over Arizona, Wentz threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns.

What has really helped Wentz’s development is an Eagles running game that is fifth in the NFL averaging 138.8 yards per game. Leading the way is LeGarrette Blount who has 323 yards rushing. Wentz’s go-to receiver has been TE Zach Ertz who has 32 catches for 387 yards and two touchdowns. The Carolina defense will have its hands full trying to stop the Philadelphia offense.

Carolina could take a page from the Eagles’ playbook and do a better job of running the ball. The Panthers only ran for 28 yards in their win over Detroit last week. Newton more than made up for it with 355 yards passing and three touchdowns. It’s not that the Panthers lack talent. They have the dynamic rookie Christian McCaffrey as well as wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin (team-high 272 yards) and Devin Funchess (team-high 3 TDs). Even tight end Ed Dickson (11 catches, 271 yards) has done an admirable job in replacing injured Greg Olsen.

The Panthers defense is why Carolina is 4-1. Julius Peppers leads the team with 5.5 sacks and Kawaan Short and Mario Addison each have three. Carolina is third overall in the league giving up just 274 total yards per game and eighth in scoring defense yielding 18.8 points.

Indianapolis @ Tennessee

Titans -1.5 Points

Over/Under 46.5 Points

If not for the gracious gods of scheduling, it is highly likely that the Indianapolis Colts would be winless heading into Week 6. As is stands, the Colts, who possess the NFL’s worst defense, are 2-3 and will battle for positioning in the competitive AFC South Division when they travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans on Monday night. Tennessee, also 2-3, will probably have to play again without starting quarterback Marcus Mariota who is nursing a hamstring injury.

The Colts, who give up an NFL-worst 31.8 points per game, were lucky enough to face Cleveland and San Francisco in the first five weeks of the season. Both are winless thus far this season and represent the Colts only two wins. Indianapolis almost gave away last week’s game to the 49ers, but rookie RB Marlon Mack, who had 91 yards rushing, set up an Adam Vinatieri 51-yard field goal to earn the victory in overtime.

Indianapolis has its own quarterback problems starting Jacoby Brissett in place of the injured Andrew Luck. Brissett played well in the win over San Francisco throwing for 314 yards and a touchdown. Without Luck, the Colts offense has been lackluster scoring just 19.4 points per game (22nd in the NFL).

For Tennessee, they will have to make do with Matt Cassel at quarterback. The Titans have lost consecutive games and have scored just 24 points total in the two losses. It would help if the normally strong Titans running game could take some of the pressure off of Cassel. Tennessee is ninth in the league in rushing offense averaging 124.8 yards per game. Last week in a 16-10 loss to Miami, the Titans managed just 69 yards on the ground.

To make matters worse for Tennessee, the Titans have lost 11 straight to the Colts. The Titans last win over Indianapolis was in 2011. It is the only Tennessee win over the Colts since the end of the 2008 season.
