NFL Passion Week 4: Immanuel's Prophecy

Updated on September 28, 2018

Week Four is upon us and if the first part of the year is any indication somebody needs to stop the LA Rams and Kansas City Chiefs and somebody needs to do it quickly. If somebody can get that done, it is anybodies ball game. The Rams have been the most complete and dominant team while KC has to have the early MVP favorite in second year quarterback Patrick Mahomes, making these two teams the clear early favorites to head to Atlanta for this February. But this isn't February this is Week 4 it's time to size up this week's matchups. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!!!!!!

Thursday Night Football

Minnesota Vikings (1-1-1) vs Los Angeles Rams (3-0) 8:20ET 5:20PT

The Vikings were widely considered a top contender in the NFC heading into the season. But following a tie against the Packers and an embarrassing loss at home to the Bills, they find themselves at 1-1-1 with the best team in the league right now in front of them. The Vikings beat LA in the playoffs last year but this Rams team is ten times better than that already talented squad from a year ago. Speaking of ten, LA has won every game this season by at least ten points, and tonight's affair will be no different

Vikings 10 Rams 21

Game of the Week

Miami Dolphins (3-0) at New England Patriots (1-2) Sunday 1ET 10PT CBS

I know many people think that the Ravens/Steelers affair on Sunday night will be the best game of the day, and they may be right. But we get to see them square off twice every season, it's too easy. What we don't get to see every year is the Pats with their backs against the wall. Sitting at 1-2, can the Pats stave off their first 1-3 start in God knows how long? Or will the undefeated Dolphins step right on their throats and FINALLY begin the process of wrestling the AFC East away from the team that has had a stranglehold on the division for so long?

Dolphins 31 Patriots 38


What game are you most looking forward to in Week 4?

The Good

Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) at Tennessee Titans (2-1) 1ET 10PT Fox

After an impressive but ugly win over the new AFC powerhouse Jaguars you can't help but speculate how the Titans will fair against the defending Superbowl champs, who have had their share of tough games to start the year. Marcus Mariota won the game last week with basically no throwing arm, but the defense had to be flawless as well. Mariota will get the nod again this week, but is he 100%? For the Titans to win this week, the formula will have to be exactly the same. Good luck shutting down Carson Wentz completely.

Eagles 24 Titans 14

Cincinatti Bengals (2-1) at Atlanta Falcons (1-2) 1ET 10PT CBS

Atlanta's schedule has been brutal the first three weeks, which seems like a bad thing considering their 1-2 record. But they have also been battle tested early and not lost any games by more than one score, along with one loss being to the Superbowl champions. Seeing that they've had tough tests each week they are used to it now, which means they will be ready. I'm not sure that bodes well for Cincy.

Falcons 28 Bengals 20

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) at Chicago Bears (2-1) 1ET 10PT Fox

Two teams who started the year as laughing stocks have respecatble 2-1 records and a chance to go two games over .500 early in the year. The addition of Khalil Mack has been crucial for the Bears, while Ryan Fitzmagic has been money for the Bucs in replacement of Jameis Winston, who returns from suspension this week. But the question is who gets the nod under center Sunday? It could make all the difference.

Buccaneers 24 Bears 17

Quarterback Controversy?

Who should start at quarterback for the Bucs Sunday?

New Orleans Saints (2-1) at New York Giants (1-2) 4:25 ET 1:25PT Fox

These are two offenses that when on point can set the field on fire. The football Giants proved that last week when they finally started clicking, the Saints have been lighting up the board all year, I and Drew Brees has been doing it for over a decade. The team whose defense remotely shows up will be the team that wins this game.

Saints 35 Giants 38


Sunday Night Football

Baltimore Ravens (2-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1-1) 8:20ET 5:20PT NBC

Every time these teams take the same field it's bound to be an instant classic. After limping out of the gate it seems that Pittsburgh bounced back nicely on Monday night, picking up their first win against the then undefeated Bucs. The Ravens ended the Broncos undefeated streak last week as well. These are historically the best two teams the AFC North has to offer, who takes home the bragging rights this season?

Ravens 14 Steelers 17

The Bad

Detroit Lions (1-2) at Dallas Cowboys (1-2) 1ET 10PT Fox

If this were Thanksgiving it would be a must see just because of the historical signifance of these two teams on that day. But it isn't!!!! So it's not!!!! Which team will stink up the joint worse? My guess is Dallas. Give me Detroit coming off their fluke win against the Pats

Lions 14 Cowboys 3

Houston Texans (0-3) at Indianapolis Colts (1-2) 1ET 10PT CBS

I could be shortchanging this matchup after some of the epic contests we've seen between these franchises over the years, but both of these teams are mediocre at best right now. But you never know with divisional games, and I still believe that when that Houston defense shows up you better watch out.

Texans 21 Colts 7

The Ugly

Buffalo Bills (1-2) at Green Bay Packers (1-1-1) 1ET 10PT Fox

If any non divisional game this week is gunna get chippy, it'll be this one. After going into Minnesota and embarrassing the Vikings the Bills look to do the same thing to the Pack this week at Lambeau. The Packers on the other hand may be desperate as they haven't looked so hot themselves, including an embarrassing 31-17 loss to the aging Redskins last week. I highly doubt that back to back losses to teams deemed inferior would sit well with Mr. Rodgers.

Bills 17 Packers 20

New York Jets (1-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) 1ET 10PT CBS

This game will be ugly because a Jaguars team with arguably the best offense in the league was embarrassed by the Tennessee Titans last week. On top of that they lost to a quarterback whose arm didn't even have the ability to throw the ball properly. All of these things will be taken out on the New York Jets this week.

Jets 10 Jaguars 35

Cleveland Browns (1-1-1) at Oakland Raiders (0-3) 4:05ET 1:05PT CBS

What a year it's been for the Cleveland Browns. And while 1-1-1 is nothing to write home about Cleveland and its fans aren't complaining. Meanwhile the Raiders have held three decent leads this season only to lose three times this season. But when your franchise is in dysfunction what better organization is there to go up against than the Cleveland Browns??

Browns 14 Raiders 17

Seattle Seahawks (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (0-3)

Two teams in the same division who aren't used to losing more than they win. Can anyone say desperation???

Seahawks 27 Cardinals 17



San Francisco 49ers (1-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (1-2) 4:25 ET 1:25PT CBS

Call me crazy, but I'm one of the few who aren't sure the 49ers are done just because Jimmy G's done for the year. They have a more rounded team than they did a year ago and I actually liked some of the throws backup C.J Beathard made both last week and in the preseason, not to mention he was the starting quarterback for the better part of last season. Then there's the part where the Chargers like to choke all the time.

49ers 38 Chargers 35


Monday Night Football

Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) at Denver Broncos (2-1) 8:30ET 5:30PT ESPN

The AFC West's best square off Monday night with question still being can Patrick Mohomes be stopped? Well the Broncos defense ain't too shabby and this is a rivalry game with much at stake, so whatever's happened the past three weeks, throw it out the window. Gimmie Denver at Mile High in a thriller.

Chiefs 21 Broncos 24

Those are the games on tap for Week Four. What's gunna happen? We can speculate all day but talk is cheap. On to the action!!!!!
