Week 4 NFL Picks; NFC West Showdown Between Cardinals & Rams in LA, Brady Returns to Gillette on SNF

Updated: Oct 1

With another exciting week of football, we move on to Week 4. Highlights of Week 3 included Myles Garrett's 4.5 sacks in a home victory over the Bears, Josh Allen going off for 350+ passing yards + 5 combined touchdowns, and the Ravens miraculous (and illegal) victory over the Lions. Justin Tucker nailed an NFL record 66-yard field goal as time expired to push the Lions to 0-3. To all my Lions fans out there, I'm sorry. The world is truly cruel to you and it cannot get worse than that, so look on the bright side.


As we look to the present, Week 4 provides some really exciting matchups. Let's start with the Bengals and Jaguars on Thursday Night. And now let's move on. One of the more intriguing matchups takes place in Denver as the Ravens travel to the Mile High City. Denver is 3-0 and have done what they needed to do against bad teams. Baltimore has dealt with a million injuries and could easily be 0-3. Credit to them for where they are right now. The big questions are can the Broncos contain Lamar Jackson and are they contenders? We should find out a lot about them on Sunday. The unbeaten Panthers travel to Dallas in an NFC Showdown. Sam Darnold has played well so far this season and will meet a Cowboys defense who have played well themselves.


The Andy Reid Bowl takes place in Philadelphia as the Eagles host the Chiefs. One of these teams will fall to 1-3 on the season. The NFC West battles each other, with the 49ers hosting Seattle and the Cardinals traveling to Los Angeles to take on the Rams. To cap off Week 4, Tom Brady makes his return to New England for the first time as an opponent. It feels like a Hollywood story and Sunday Night is the perfect atmosphere. Look for Brady to take no prisoners in his return. The Chargers and Raiders face off on Monday Night Football. It will be another awesome week of football.
