Denver Broncos @NYG
The Denver Broncos are set to have a huge opening week on the road against the New York Giants. The Broncos had a top ten defense last year, and are entering at full strength against a poor offensive line. Daniel Jones is an inaccurate and often times panicked quarterback that Vic Fangio should exploit. Barkley will likely be held on a snap count and Kenny Golliday is banged up, meaning Jones will be looking at his 3rd, 4th, or 5th best option to generate yards. There should be turnovers and sacks from the Broncos defense as they will likely keep the Giants under 20 points.
Carolina Panthers v NYJ
The Carolina Panthers should give a rude welcome to rookie Head Coach Robert Saleh and his rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. The New York Jets have a suspect offensive line, with a lackluster backfield. Zach Wilson, as impressive as he looked in the preseason, will have his hands full with a defense that can bring pressure from multiple positions. IDPs Burns, Reddick, and Chinn could have good stat lines as the Panthers D/ST should dominate the Jets offense.
New Orleans Saints v GB
s great as the New Orleans Saints are, they face a tough opponent in the Green Bay Packers. Even without their best offensive lineman the Packers are lethal with one of the best QB/RB/WR combos in the NFL.
Cincinnati Bengals v MIN
The Cincinnati Bengals are a team opening at home, with a lot of hype that is worth staying away from. The Vikings will likely pound with Cook, and take advantage of mismatches with their great WR duo.
