The Browns' placekicking can't get any worse and this is a brutal spot for the Jets and their rookie QB -- playing their third game in 11 days. Cleveland's pass rush will deliver, while the Jets' pass rush won't bother Tyrod Taylor. He knows how to beat the Jets (from his days in Buffalo) and will do so again.

This is a play against Miami's Jeff Brigham, who has a 1.91 WHIP and 7.36 ERA. Cincy should be a bigger favorite. Lay it.

Wish I'd jumped on this total earlier but I see the Bills focusing on their ground game and playing much better defense at home today. Look for something in the neighborhood of 24-13 Chargers.

Sun 9/16

It's not so much Marcus Mariota's injury that pushed me to the Texans, even following the line move. It's that Mariota (or Blaine Gabbert) will be playing behind an O-line missing its starting tackles. Look for Deshaun Watson to start hot and Houston to roll.
