Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars
9:30 am EST, CBS
The Ravens and Jaguars will bring their games to Wembley Stadium in London for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s annual UK advertising tour. Since these games are usually an exercise in jetlag, expect a slogging, low-scoring, run-heavy affair. The Ravens will hope their patchwork offensive line can hold off the Jaguars’ pass rush, while the Jaguars will lean heavily on running backs Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory to break through Baltimore’s formidable defensive front.
Ravens – DT Michael Pierce, RB Alex Collins, RB Javorius Allen
Jaguars – Fournette, Ivory, MLB Paul Posluszny
Cleveland Browns @ Indianapolis Colts
1:00 pm EST, CBS
The Browns, for the first time in recent memory, are favored against the hapless Colts, whose quarterback options have been reduced to “prospects” Jacoby Brissett and Scott Tolzien. Expect heavy blitzing and controlled, patient offense from the Browns, who should look to limit the Colts’ meager offensive opportunities.
Browns – LB Christian Kirksey, DE Carl Nassib, RB Duke Johnson Jr.
Colts – Brissett, WR T.Y Hilton, CB Vontae Davis (game time decision)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Chicago Bears
1:00 pm EST, CBS
The Steelers will try to get their sputtering running game untracked against the woeful Bears, whose early-season quarterback controversy has seemingly already derailed their season. Steelers feature back Le’Veon Bell will look to find the end zone for the first time this season and double his output of 119 total rushing yards in his first two games.
Steelers – Bell, WR Antonio Brown, LB Anthony Chickillo
Bears – QB Mike Glennon, CB Prince Amukamara, RB Jordan Howard
Cincinnati Bengals @ Green Bay Packers
4:25 pm, CBS
The Bengals take their offensive troubles to Green Bay to face a possible tonic in the Green Bay’s suspect defense. If the Bengals produce some semblance of timely defense against Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, they stand an honest shot of winning this game. Look for the Bengals to produce some high-percentage passing plays to ease the burden on embattled quarterback Andy Dalton.
Bengals – RB Joe Mixon, WR Cody Core, DE Carlos Dunlap
Packers – TE Martellus Bennett, WR Jordy Nelson, LB Nick Perry
