NFL Week Four

There were more twists and turns in the third round of NFL fixtures and the shocks could keep on coming in Week Four.

The Rams to continue charge

Having secured a 35-23 victory over city rivals Los Angeles Chargers, the LA Rams will be full of confidence as they prepare to welcome the Minnesota Vikings to California on Friday.

The Rams are in free-scoring form having notched up 102 points in their first three games of the season, in wins over Oakland Raiders, rivals Arizona Cardinals and the Chargers.

That perfect record will be put to the test by a Vikings side that were tipped up as Super Bowl contenders before a ball was kicked this season.

However, Minnesota have been a mixed bag up to now, ranging from the brilliant to the distinctly average.

For a side that were one game away from the Super Bowl last season, a 27-6 drubbing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills is not acceptable.

The Coliseum will be a tough place for any team to go this season and the Rams, at 1.91 with -6.5 on the full-time spread, look like an attractive prospect.

Eagles to continue rise with Wentz

Philadelphia Eagles got back to winning ways last time out against the Indianapolis Colts and looked like a different beast with quarterback Carson Wentz back in action.

The talented playmaker has managed to shrug off the nasty knee injury that ended his participation in Philadelphia’s march towards the Super Bowl title last season.

Back-up Nick Foles of course did a remarkable job at the end of last season and helped get the Eagles off to a winning start against the Atlanta Falcons.

However, he came up short against Tampa Bay Buccaneers and head coach Doug Pederson will be delighted to have Wentz back, while the Eagles could also be boosted by returns for running back Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles.

Next up for the reigning champions is a tricky trip on Sunday to Tennessee to face a Titans side that just about managed a great win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Titans reached the playoffs last season only to lose comprehensively to the New England Patriots.

This might be a close encounter but Philadelphia, at 1.94 with -4 on the full-time spread, should get the job done as Wentz finds his rhythm in his second start of the season.

Giants can make it back-to-back wins

New York Giants secure their first win of the season last time out and will fancy their chances against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

After getting a win on the road against the Houston Texans, the Giants head back to the Big Apple and will be looking to give their home fans something to cheer about.

New Orleans themselves picked up an away win against the Falcons last time out but winning back-to-back games on the road in the NFL is extremely tough to do.

The Giants are 2.65 to cause an upset against the Saints and continue piling the pressure on the Redskins, Cowboys and Eagles in the formidable NFC East.
