The Ravens will send rookies, James Hurst and John Urschel out to protect Flacco’s blind side.

The Falcons sport a weak pass rush against two rookies this weekend. Expect the Ravens to feature running back, Justin Forsett this weekend, with quarterback, Joe Flacco spreading the ball around.

Ravens, 31-20


AJ Green has yet to return to practice as the Bengals face the Colts’ potent offense.

The Bengals are hurting offensively, but they were still able to score 37 points against a mediocre Panthers team last weekend. Expect Giovanni Bernard and Mohammed Sanu to shoulder the load on Sunday. The absent Bengals’ defense needs to make an appearance this weekend.

Colts, 34-24


Cornerback, Joe Haden, is healthy and ready to face Jacksonville wide receiver, Cecil Shorts again on Sunday.

The Browns’ defense has been a weak point so far this season. They face efficient rookie, Blake Bortles on Sunday afternoon, on the road. Tight end, Jordan Cameron should be a feature against a slower Jaguars middle defense.

Browns, 26-16


The Steelers face a tough test against a ferocious Texans defense, and steady offense.

Expect a motivated Steelers team, led by Le’VeonBell, to challenge the Texans. League MVP candidate, JJ Watt, will make life difficult for the Steelers’ offensive line. The Steelers’ weak secondary needs to keep Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins in check to have a chance at home. The Steelers’ defensive line, likely facing some changes, needs to limit running back, Arian Foster’s yards.

Steelers, 24-16
