As the NFL season hits the homestretch, there are games that simply doesn’t make a difference much on the NFL schedule. The fight between the last two groups in the NFC South is one of them. Atlanta overwhelmed Carolina in the last gathering, winning 29-3 and holding the Panthers to only 77 surge yards. The Falcons are ninth in the NFL in yards per convey permitted (4.0), so it shouldn’t be a shock in the event that they can stop Christian McCaffrey once more. Pumas quarterback Kyle Allen has been sacked multiple times this year, however the Falcons have only 18 sacks on the year (second least in the NFL). The Falcons got to Allen multiple times and he tossed four block attempts, which is difficult to see happening once more. Carolina permits 5.3 yards per convey (toward the end in NFL) and Devonta Freeman won’t have that quite a bit of an effect.

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS)

Line: Buccaneers – 3

While Tampa permits 28.8 focuses (30th in NFL), the Colts have scored under 20 points in three of their last four games and have permitted 51 points in their last two games. The Buccaneers should toss the ball regularly against the Colts, who are 29th in the NFL in adversary’s finish rate (68.92%). Jameis Winston’s turnovers could be an issue (20 block attempts, 11 bungles), yet the Colts have only 15 on the season.

Miami Dolphins (3-9) at New York Jets (4-8)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS)

Line: Jets – 5.5

The Dolphins are falling off an exhibition which they totaled a season-high 37 and 409 yards in a success over the Eagles, so what will they accomplish for a reprise against a group they previously beaten for the current year? The Jets were the main group the Dolphins didn’t have a turnover against, so that should change in the rematch. Miami is still toward the end in yards per convey (3.1) and surge yards per game (62.8), which isn’t great against a Jets run barrier that permits simply 2.9 yards per convey and 75.2 yards per game (both first in NFL). For the Jets to take the rematch in New York, they need to focus on the run against a Dolphins safeguard that permits 143.5 yards on the ground (31st in NFL). The Jets may average simply 3.2 yards per convey (31st in NFL), yet that is the best approach to take care of the Dolphins early. Miami in chilly climate games doesn’t appear to go well either.

Despite everything they can return home field advantage, yet should beat the Saints to keep that fantasy alive. New Orleans permits simply 88.6 yards on the ground (third in NFL), however groups just run the ball 21.7 occasions off them. The Saints will be tested by the 49ers on the ground as San Francisco will keep on running the ball (33.3 surge endeavors per game, second in NFL), regardless of the 4.4 yards per convey (sixteenth in NFL). The Saints ought to get Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray associated with this one, as the 49ers do permit 116.7 yards per game (22nd in NFL) and 4.7 yards per convey (25th in NFL). This game will come down to the 49ers safeguard (4.3 yards per play permitted, 45 sacks) exploiting a Saints hostile line missing their left handle and left watchman.

David Blough played well in his first start, yet the Lions have found the middle value of 133.7 yards per game the last three games.
