New York Jets at Miami Dolphins – London (EVEN)

The Dolphins are a mess right now. They can’t seem to get things going offensively and the defense has so far failed to live up to expectations. With Chris Ivory likely to be back, the Jets will have enough to come through a tight divisional battle in my home country.

Pick: New York 19, Miami 13

New York Giants at Buffalo Bills (-5.5)

Rex Ryan has his Bills playing brilliantly. We all know how dominant the defense can be, but how about Tyrod Taylor? He’s on fire and is bringing a lot of confidence to Buffalo right now. I’m picking them to go 3-1.

Pick: Buffalo 31, New York 14

Oakland Raiders (-3) at Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler is expected to miss this week, and Jimmy Clausen led the Bears to a total of zero points against Seattle. But hey, John Fox understands it was bad and has admitted the Bears need more than zero points. I suppose he’s got a point really, they do. Without Cutler, Derek Carr and Amari Cooper take the road win.

Pick: Oakland 34, Chicago 18

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-10)

Andrew Luck fought back against Tennessee, but he’s looked out of touch so far this season. He’s due a big game, and unfortunately for the Jaguars they take a beating at the hands of a top quarterback for the second straight week.

Pick: Indianapolis 42, Jacksonville 21

Carolina Panthers (-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Panthers squeezed past the Luke McCown-led Saints last week, but Cam Newton has put the team on his back and will do enough to win once again. Carolina only won three times before December last year, but they will go 4-0 to start this one.

Pick: Carolina 20, Tampa Bay 10

Philadelphia Eagles (-3) at Washington Redskins

We finally caught a glimpse of what we expected from Philadelphia last week against New York, but there are still a number of question marks surrounding this football team. Washington have a lot of problems too, but they pull off the upset at home.

Pick: Washington 27, Philadelphia 24
