-Tennessee is 3-7 ATS over the L/10 years in Week 2
-The Steelers are 5-1 ATS in their L/6 overall

Series History
These two teams flat out don’t like each other. They have met quite a bit in the playoffs and in the regular season in recent years, and the battles have, for the most part, gone to the home team. The host has won seven of the L/9 in this series with one road win coming for each team since that point as well. Pittsburgh won last year’s battle 13-10 in overtime in Steeltown by lost 31-14 the last time it played at LP Field.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Buffalo Bills @ Green Bay Packers
NFL Trends of Note

-Buffalo is 8-3 ATS in its L/11 road games
-The Packers are 8-1-1 ATS in their L/10 overall

Series History
Buffalo hasn’t visited Green Bay since 2002 and hasn’t scored a point there since 1997. The home team has won every game in this series dating back to 1991, which was the last time the Bills won a game in Lambeau Field. Buffalo is also 7-3 ATS over the L/10 meetings dating back to 1988 between these squads.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Kansas City Chiefs @ Cleveland Browns
NFL Trends of Note
-The Chiefs have covered five of their L/6 road games
-Cleveland is 6-0 ATS in its L/6 against the AFC
-The Browns are winless in their L/4 games ATS in September

Series History
Classics certainly don’t describe the games these teams have played in their histories. The Brownies have been all over the Chiefs since 2003, going 4-0 SU and ATS against them. Cleveland holds a 4-2 SU and ATS advantage all-time. The winning score in this series has been at least 31 points in four of the six meetings.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Arizona Cardinals @ Atlanta Falcons
NFL Trends of Note
-Arizona is just 7-22 ATS in its L/29 road games against teams with a losing home record
-The Falcons are a perfect 8-0 ATS in their L/8 following a game in which they held their opponent to 14 points or less
-Atlanta is 13-3 ATS in its L/16 following an SU defeat

Series History
The home team has won four straight and nine out of ten between these two teams in the regular season, but the key NFL trend to watch here in on the ‘over’. Three straight and seven of the L/8 have eclipsed the number, as the home team has scored at least 30 points in three straight and at least 29 in eight of the L/9.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Philadelphia Eagles @ Detroit Lions
NFL Trends of Note
-The Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their L/8 against teams with a losing record
-Detroit is 2-6-2 ATS in its L/10 against the NFC
-The Lions are 3-7-2 ATS in their L/12 overall

Series History
These two teams have only met five times since 1986, with Philly winning all five both SU and ATS. The Lions have been beaten by at least 17 in three of the five games and by at least three TDs twice in that stretch. Philly has averaged 35.6 PPG in its L/5 against the Lions. This is only Philadelphia’s second trip to the Motor City since the 1980s (30-13 ‘W’ in 2004).

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys
NFL Trends of Note
-The Bears are 2-8 ATS in their L/10 overall
-Chicago is 2-8 ATS in its L/10 against the NFC
-Dallas is a rock solid 6-2 its L/8 home games

Series History
Chicago hasn’t beaten the Cowboys since 1998 and hasn’t beaten them in “Big D” since 1986 when they were still Super Bowl shuffling! Dallas owns a 5-2 ATS advantage between these conference foes since 1988. Seven of the L/9 have failed to exceed the ‘total’, as the losing team hasn’t scored more than 14 points in a game in this series since the early 1980s.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Miami Dolphins @ Minnesota Vikings
NFL Trends of Note
-The Fins are 6-1 ATS in their L/7 away from South Beach
-Miami is 11-25-1 ATS in its L/37 against teams with a losing record
-The Vikes are 5-0-1 ATS in their L/6 played at home

Series History
There certainly isn’t much of a history between these two teams, but the history that exists is all in favor of the home team. Miami won in 2006 24-20 when these teams collided in the Sunshine State, but Minnesota upset the Fins 20-17 at home in 2002. The only road win since the 1980s of these teams owns to Minnesota, which won 20-7 in 2001.

Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET: Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals
NFL Trends of Note
-Baltimore is 11-1 ATS in its L/12 against teams with a losing record
-Cincinnati is 7-3 ATS in its L/10 against teams with a winning record
-The Bengals are 8-3 ATS in their L/11 against the Ravens

Series History
Last season, the Bengals were underdogs in both games in this season series and won both outright. Baltimore swept the season series in ’08, but before that, it was all Cincy. The Bengals, for whatever reason, love playing the Ravens, as they have a better record against the purple and black since ’05 than against any other team in the AFC North.

Sunday, September 19th, 4:05 PM ET: Seattle Seahawks @ Denver Broncos
NFL Trends of Note
-Seattle is just 1-8 ATS in its L/9 road games
-The Seahawks are 6-2 ATS in their L/8 against teams with a losing record
-Denver is only 8-21-1 ATS in its L/30 games at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium

Series History
These two teams used to share a division together, but since splitting up, the only meeting was a 23-20 win for the Seahawks on the road here in the Mile High City. The home team won three of the four between 2000 and 2001 before the Seahawks switched over to the NFC.

Sunday, September 19th, 4:05 PM ET: St. Louis Rams @ Oakland Raiders

-The Pats are 10-4-1 ATS in the L/15 against the Jets

Series History
More bad news for the men in green… The road team is 19-7-1 ATS over the L/27 in this series. The Jets could be in some serious trouble if they don’t come up with an upset like they did last year in this same week of the season against the Pats. New England has won seven of the L/10 in this series SU and six of the ten ATS.

Sunday, September 19th, 4:15 PM ET: Jacksonville Jaguars @ San Diego Chargers
NFL Trends of Note
-Jacksonville is 7-23 ATS in its L/30 played on grass

-San Diego is 19-93 ATS in its L/31 games following an SU loss

Series History
These teams have only met three times since the Jags have been in existence, and it’s been all one way traffic for the home team. Jacksonville won the last meeting 24-17 in 2007, but the home team is 3-0 SU and ATS. The favorite is also 2-1 SU and ATS, with the only upset belonging to the 2004 Chargers, who upset Jacksonville 34-21.

-Washington is 6-2-1 ATS in its L/9 overall
-Houston is just 2-8 ATS in its L/10 against teams with a winning home record

Series History
This will only be the third meeting ever between these two teams. This is one of the few teams that the Texans have never beaten. Houston lost 31-15 at home to the ‘Skins in 2006 and was dropped 26-10 in its inaugural season in 2002 in its lone visit to Landover.

Sunday, September 19th, 8:20 PM ET: New York Giants @ Indianapolis Colts

Series History
The Saints are a rock solid 10-2 ATS in their L/12 against San Fran, which could be bad news for the already 0-1 Niners. New Orleans hasn’t lost a game in this series since 2002 in the postseason, and hasn’t dropped a regular season duel since 2001.
