Before we begin, let’s pour one out for Bill O’Brien. You gotta feel for Houston’s ownership (rare that one would feel any sympathy for an NFL owner). It wasn’t enough for BOB just to simply be God awful at his two jobs, he had to salt the earth for the next three Houston coaches/GMs by trading DeAndre Hopkins.

New England (2-1) @ Kansas City (3-0)
Line: KC (-11)
Matt: Mahomes has beaten Billy B and the Patriots before. KC topped New England 23-16 in Week 14 of last year, at Gillette Stadium no less. With Brian Hoyer under center in this game, it’s going to require an epic collapse from Andy Reid, and/or 17 injuries to the Chiefs to keep this one close.
Matt’s Pick: Kansas City to win and cover -11
Fleet: All work and no Cam Newton make Bill a dull boy.
Brian Hoyer might get chopped up by an axe this week.
Fleet’s Pick: Kansas City
Atlanta (0-3) @ Green Bay (3-0)
Line: GB (-7)
Fleet: Poor Atlanta fans, you deserve a coach that can hold a lead.
Note: the above take is not hot. I feel for a fan base which has constantly been let down though, and feel it needed to be said.
Fleet’s Pick: Green Bay
Arguably the best team in the NFC, going up against a poorly-coached team that is absolutely reeling. Going with Rodgers, the superior QB and spokesman.
Matt’s Pick: Green Bay
