Week 4 NFL Picks, Storylines, Minus Domestic Violence Edition

Can it be true? Oh, can it be true? No conflicts have occurred this week. That shocks me and I know you are shocked too.

This week has a host of storylines starting with the Thursday night game. The New York Football Giants will travel to Washington. Both teams come into the contest with a 1-2 record. The loser of this game will most likely fall to 1-5. That record still may be good enough to win the NFC East.

Other storylines from around the league:

  • Can the Chargers winning streak continue without a running game?
  • How will Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles fair in their 1st NFL starts?
  • Will the Patriots a Play well against a “good” team?
  • Can Da Bears or 49ers play a complete game?
  • Will Geno Smith or Ryan Tannehill get benched?

The Down the Line Sports Blog has on again had a winning week. Actually going into last week, my picks were better than all of the experts on NFL Sunday Countdown on ESPN.

Last week: 9-7

Overall: 31-17
