Only eight games were pick unanimously this week by our staff, although that’s more than half of the total slate with four teams on a bye. Of the eight consensus predicted winners, seven of them are favorited on the road: Buccaneers, Bengals, Packers, Chiefs, Rams, Cowboys and Bills.
Indianapolis, Kansas City and Los Angeles are favored by more than a touchdown. The Bengals, Packers and Cowboys are each 3.5-point favorites in their matchups against the Lions, Bears and Patriots, respectively.
