Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 6pm
4:41 NFL pundit Rob Ryan breaks down some of Cleveland’s running plays on Inside the Huddle.
COACH RYAN PICK: Steelers
“I’m going with the Steelers as I think they’re set up well to stop the Browns’ run game, while Cleveland’s defence has been more opportunistic than they’ve been very good.”
NELSON/LOGAN PICK: Browns
Logan: “It’s a tough one, this, because the Browns are playing really well now.”
Nelson: “Wait, you actually know what you’re talking about? Get in there!”
Logan: “The Steelers beat the Eagles last week, but shipped a lot of points, and so I’m going to go for a Browns win – in Pittsburgh! I’m going for the shock.”
Nelson: “I’m with you.”
CRESSWELL PICK: Steelers
Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 9.25pm
COACH RYAN PICK: Packers
“I hate to bet against my guy Tom Brady, BUT, the Bucs just can’t get healthy on offence…it’s looking like Brady last year in New England, with no weapons to throw to.
“Mike Evans is playing, but he’s hurt and can’t run, Chris Godwin is out, O.J. Howard for the year. So I’m taking the Packers, especially coming off of a bye week.”
NELSON/LOGAN PICK: Packers
Nelson: “Two Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers and Brady.”
Logan: “I’m going for the 4-0 Packers to pull this one off. Brady lost again last week and the Packers are playing really well.”
CRESSWELL PICK: Buccaneers
Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers
Sunday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Monday, 1.20am
COACH RYAN PICK: Rams
“The Niners are 0-3 at home right now, so I’m taking the Rams. I don’t know what’s going on in San Francisco right now.
“The Super Bowl hangover is real. Plus, losing Nick Bosa for the season in the first game of the year has crushed the pass rush.”
NELSON/LOGAN PICK: Rams
Nelson: “San Fran made the Super Bowl last year, but look lost this year, while the Rams look back to their best.”
Logan: “The Rams are playing really well at the moment, as you said, and the 49ers are suffering from so many injuries – something is not quite right there.”
CRESSWELL PICK: Rams
Kansas City Chiefs @ Buffalo Bills
Monday night, live on Sky Sports NFL, 10pm
5:57 Highlights of the Bills’ 42-16 defeat to the Titans from Week Five of the NFL.
COACH RYAN PICK: Chiefs
“Both teams really disappointed last week. They had looked unbeatable, but they both get their block knocked off. I’m edging towards the Chiefs, just.”
NELSON/LOGAN PICK: Chiefs
Nelson: “This is set to be a great game matchup between two really good, strong offences. What is your shout?”
Logan: “The Chiefs got shocked last week by the Raiders, which is wonderful. They’re my second favourite team to the Eagles. But the Chiefs are going to win this one – the Bills were awful defensively last week – and I can’t see Kansas City losing two on the trot.”
CRESSWELL PICK: Bills
Arizona Cardinals @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Tuesday, 1.15am
COACH RYAN PICK: Cowboys
“I’m not sold on the Cardinals. I’m sold on Kyler Murray, but not the team as a whole.
“I’m taking Dallas – they’ve got way too much talent, even without Dak Prescott. They’ve got to play better on defence, but it’s impossible to play that bad every week!”
NELSON/LOGAN PICK: Cardinals
Nelson: “Apparently the Cowboys aren’t very popular?”
Logan: “They’re not. They are the Man Utd of the NFL! You either love them or loathe them.
“They’ll miss Prescott. And they can’t defend at the moment, they’re just shipping points. They were scoring a lot too, when Prescott was playing, but now he’s injured, I’m going for a Cardinals win.”
CRESSWELL PICK: Cowboys
Week Six gets underway on Sky Sports NFL with a triple header on Sunday, starting with an AFC North rivalry with the Cleveland Browns against the Pittsburgh Steelers – build up begins at 5pm, with kick-off at 6pm.
