Aaron Rodgers and the Packers visit the Vikings this Sunday afternoon.
Philip Rivers and Kyle Orton know how to put up big numbers. The quarterbacks have been slinging the ball all over the field since the start of the 2010 season. We expected this from Rivers, who is putting in MVP performances despite San Diego’s 4-5 start, but Orton has been a revelation.
The Denver quarterback has made his share of mistakes but he’s also the main reason the Broncos are in the running in the AFC West. Unfortunately for Orton, he’s coming up against a defense which has improved steadily over the last month.
I like the Chargers to limit Denver’s offense. With Rivers firing bullets all year, the Chargers look capable of winning big in prime time. Bet on the San Diego Chargers as 10-point favorites with Sports Interaction.
While San Diego is overcoming its bad start to the year, the Vikings seem stuck in reverse. Brad Childress has lost pretty much everything but his job at this stage. The fans don’t believe Minnesota can win, the players don’t believe Childress can coach, and soon enough the owners will share both of these views.
It could come as soon as Sunday. A loss to Green Bay in the Metrodome would be the final nail in the coffin for Childress. The Packers come into this game on the back of a bye week, potentially giving them an extra bit of pep in their step. I like Green Bay to start fast and end this one early. Bet on the Green Bay Packers to win as three-point favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
Michael Vick will look to shine in prime time for a second straight week as the Eagles host the Giants at the Linc. New York’s defense won’t make the same kind of calamitous errors that cost the Redskins last week but I still like Vick to put on a show for Sunday Night Football. The Eagles quarterback has improved as a pocket passer in 2010 and it’s these skills he will turn to in order to outduel Eli Manning in this NFC East showdown. Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles as three-point favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
While New England and Indianapolis won’t get a prime time spotlight, they will still capture the attention of most NFL fans this weekend. Tom Brady has done a great job to get the Patriots to 7-2 but there are just too many issues with the New England defense to like them in this matchup. No quarterback can exploit holes like Peyton Manning and he should shred the Patriots secondary on Sunday afternoon.
I like the 'over' 50½ points in what promises to be a high-scoring game. Bet on the Indianapolis Colts as three-point underdogs with Sports Interaction.
