After last week we have improved to 5-7 on the year with predictions with a clean sweep in Week 4. Now onto Week 5, here are three bold predictions:
Jets Defeat Tua Tagovailoa-less Dolphins
Zach Wilson looked impressive in his return last week against Pittsburgh and seems to have a grasp of the offense. The Miami Dolphins are dealing with some injuries, one big one being to their star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The New York Jets will have to deal with the incredible tandem of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but rookie defensive back Sauce Gardner and free agent signing DJ Reed have been a great duo.
Cooper Rush Goes 4-0 as Start Following Win Over Reigning Super Bowl Champions
The Los Angeles Rams have had their ups and downs so far this season, while the Dallas Cowboys have remained hot since their opening night loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have done so with their backup quarterback Cooper Rush. The Cowboys defense has also been very good behind Trevon Diggs, who has improved in pass coverage this season.
Arizona Cardinals Prove to be a Trap Team, Hand Eagles Their First Defeat
The ‘Battle of the Birds’ will include former Oklahoma quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Kyler Murray. The Philadelphia Eagles have been off to a hot start, while the Arizona Cardinals had an all-around good team win against Carolina. Arizona could put it all together here and shock the Eagles at home and put themselves in a position for success with wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins coming back soon.
