Jared picks two Saturday NFL games: Bills vs Broncos and Packers vs Panthers
The action starts at 4:30 pm. Both games should be entertaining even if neither ends up close.
Bills (-6.5) BRONCOS (49.5)
Jared’s Pick: Bills
Breakout Player: WR Stefon Diggs
Buffalo embarrassed Pittsburgh last week and the Steelers arguably have the best defense in the league. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs have been a duo nobody has been able to stop. Denver has had a strong secondary this year, so it will be interesting to see how this game plays out. But Buffalo should still cover.
PACKERS (-8.5) Panthers (52)
Jared’s Pick: Packers
Breakout Player: QB Aaron Rodgers
MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay have been nearly unbeatable this season. Now, going against the 23rd ranked secondary in football in yards allowed per game, it would make sense to see Rodgers dominate in the passing game once again. I’d also expect to see more of Aaron Jones this week, after not seeing much from him last week. If Green Bay’s defense continues to play like they have been, Carolina won’t score much with RB Christian McCaffrey likely out. Green Bay is set up to cover this game on their home turf.
