Take New England -7 away vs. Pittsburgh
New England was dominant once again with Brady at the helm, as they secured the home victory against Cincinnati 35-17. Pittsburgh was in shambles down in Miami, as they lost 30-15 after being heavy favorites. New England looked like a strong team in their first 4 games without Brady, but now that he’s back in the mix things are clicking on all cylinders. Brady has thrown for 781 yds, 6 TDs and 0 INTs in 2 games since his return, and the defense is only allowing 15 PPG. Ben Roethlisberger was taken out and then played through an injury in their recent loss, but he has officially been ruled out for the game against NE. The offense is radically different when Landry Jones is at QB, and it’ll be hard for him to keep up with Brady as he’s never thrown for more than 209 yds in an NFL game. Even with their other weapons in Brown and Bell on offense, their offense will only be mediocre at best and their defense won’t be able to slow down Brady and Co. as they rank 28th in yards allowed/game. Taking NE to win by at least 7 is a safe bet here.
