Carolina Panthers @ New York Giants
Sunday at 1:00 on FOX
Amari’s Pick: Carolina Panthers
Why I’m Right: The undefeated Carolina Panthers look to go 14-0 this week in the Meadowlands as they take on the New York Giants led by standout receiver Odell Beckham Jr. who has been torching secondaries week after week, making some of the best catches you’ll ever see. But even with Odell’s heroics, I just don’t see a way the Giants can pull this one out. The Panthers are on a roll and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Especially coming off a 38-0 shellacking of division rival Atlanta Falcons who boasts one the best of the best receivers in the game in Julio Jones and Josh Norman pretty much held him in check as the Falcons were shut out. Expect to see a similar result this Sunday with Odell Beckham as Josh Norman will follow him everywhere he goes. He will also have the #3 ranked defense along his side as the panthers only give up a shade over 300 yards a game. The Panthers aren’t only undefeated because of their defense, their offense is legit as well as they have the #3 rushing attack in the league rushing for over 141 yards per game, to go along with the MVP front-runner Cam Newton throwing darts to his receivers up and down the field. This doesn’t look good for the Giants as they have the last ranked defense in the NFL and that will be their downfall as the Panthers will win this game quite easily.
Cleveland Browns @ Seattle Seahawks
Sunday at 4:05 on FOX
Amari’s Pick: Seattle Seahawks
Why I’m Right: The Seahawks these past few weeks look like the Seahawks that played in the Super Bowl the past two years. The reason for this is that their defense has finally got back on track and look like to me, the best defense in the league. Even better than the undefeated Carolina Panthers defense. Last week the Seahawks took a major blow as running back Thomas Rawls suffered an ankle injury keeping him out for the rest of the year. Rawls is the backup for beast mode Marshawn Lynch so this is a little concerning for Seattle as Marshawn might be out for the season with a sports hernia. However quarterback Russell wilson has been playing phenomenal lately throwing for over 900 yards and 13 touchdowns in the last three games. So in this one expect the mediocre Johnny Manziel led Browns to take a L this Sunday in Seattle.
