Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers

Thursday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Friday, 12.20am

0:57 Rather than line-up for a game-winning field goal and run the clock down, Todd Gurley scored an accidental touchdown for the Falcons!


“Carolina are playing a lot better than anyone anticipated they would be – they’re still in the playoff picture – and there are a lot of reasons for optimism. Atlanta, meanwhile, have a really good team on paper but have been a huge disappointment, costing Dan Quinn his job.

“I think this is going to be a really good football game; Atlanta keep inventing new ways to loose – Todd Gurley last week not going down before the goal line, allowing Detroit the time to come back and beat them – and so I like Carolina to win the game.”


BENT PICKS: Panthers

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 6pm

6:28 The best of the action from the Steelers versus the Titans in Week Seven of the 2020 NFL season


“If you love physical football, then this is a great matchup!

“Baltimore are a run-first team behind Lamar Jackson, and the Steelers are maybe as good as anybody in the NFL in playing the run.

“Pittsburgh, on offence, have a lot of weapons outside, and Ben Roethlisberger’s ability to get the ball to them gives them the edge.”



San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 9.25pm

0:51 Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson throws a goal-line interception to Cardinals safety Budda Baker who returns it 90 yards before being tackled by wide receiver D.K. Metcalf


“Russell Wilson, for my money, is playing as well as anybody in the NFL right now. D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett give him two big-play threats on the outside.

“The question for the Seahawks is around their defence; can they play good enough defence? But my concern with San Francisco is, which Jimmy Garoppolo are you going to get?

“If Garoppolo can be efficient, protect the football, make a few key throws when he has to, then the 49ers have a chance, But if not, it will be Wilson’s day.”


BENT PICKS: Seahawks

Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Monday, 1.20am

1:18 GMF’s Kay Adams joins NFL Overtime to give her top NFL Fantasy tips, including whether it’s time to drop Cowboys stars after a couple of disastrous weeks


“This is another big rivalry game, and one that usually garners national attention – two storied NFL teams – but both of them have really struggled this year. Whoever wins this game will win the division.

“I just don’t know how the Cowboys are going to manufacture points with their rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci. The Eagles too have not exactly been prolific on offence this year, but their quarterback Carson Wentz certainly gives them the advantage here.”



Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New York Giants

Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Tuesday, 1.15am

3:50 GMF look at the contrasting fortunes of Tom Brady and Cam Newton as Brady’s Bucs hammered the Raiders, while his former team the Patriots lost a third straight


“[Giants head coach] Joe Judge is doing about as much as he can do with the roster that he’s got, he’s got his team showing up, playing tough, sound football.

“But that is not enough against this Tampa Bay team that is starting to hit their stride. I really think that the Buccaneers will be the NFC representative in the Super Bowl if they can stay healthy.”
