Onion Sports’ NFL Week Four Picks

OSN shares its expert analysis on the teams that will come away with victory in this weekend’s NFL week four games:

49ers at Rams

OSN’s Lock Of The Week: 49ers — The 49ers will rebound after a pair of tough losses in a 35-11 win over the Rams, leading San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh to only scream at his wife three times on the car ride home.

Ravens at Bills

OSN’s Pick: Ravens — Quarterback Joe Flacco could look pretty good this week against a depleted Bills secondary relying on head athletic trainer Bill Carpenter at cornerback.

Bengals at Browns

OSN’s Pick: Bengals — The Browns will have no answer for Cincinnati’s elite long snapper Clark Harris.

Bears at Lions

OSN’s Pick: Bears — Chicago will prove once and for all that this team has a very easy schedule.

Seahawks at Texans

OSN’s Pick: Texans — Russell Wilson and the Seahawks face their greatest test yet against a hostile Texans crowd that don’t take kindly to their type around here.

Colts at Jaguars

OSN’s Pick: Colts — While we think they should win easily, Andrew Luck and the Colts offense will have a tough time adjusting to the deafening silence of EverBank Field.

Giants at Chiefs

OSN’s Pick: Chiefs — Eli Manning will have another long day of trying to avoid being crushed by the Giants’ toppling offensive line.

Steelers at Vikings

OSN’s Pick: Steelers — If you have any interest in this game, you probably play for the Steelers or Vikings.

Cardinals at Buccaneers

OSN’s Pick: Cardinals — The old witch said Arizona, and she hasn’t been wrong yet.

Jets at Titans

OSN’s Pick: Jets — With Geno Smith leading the way, the Jets will continue their improbable march toward third place in the AFC East.

Broncos at Eagles

OSN’s Pick: Broncos — Chip Kelly’s high-octane Eagles offense will score six touchdowns in this 50-point blowout loss against the Broncos.

Redskins at Raiders

OSN’s Pick: Redskins — Raiders pick up where they left off last week as they start the game down 16 points.

Cowboys at Chargers

OSN’s Pick: Cowboys — The Chargers have the odds stacked against them, as they have been very poor against NFL offenses this season.

Patriots At Falcons

OSN’s Pick: Patriots — Only a few weeks into the season, we’ve already seen enough: Tom Brady is the real deal.

Dolphins At Saints

OSN’s Pick: Saints — This prediction is actually a little hazy because the game is so far in the future.
