5 NFL Sunday picks: Jaguars London hoodoo to continue against Buffalo

Jacksonville face more heartache across the pond - plus 4 other teams that you should be keeping an eye on this weekend

2/5 – Buffalo Bills to beat Jacksonville Jaguars

The past few years in London have been pretty rough for Jacksonville, they have yet to win a game and while they may have the support of the neutrals in the crowd, it won’t be enough.

The Bills haven’t progressed in the way many thought they would but injuries on offence have definitely held Rex Ryan’s team back.

Their defence has been complaining about their schemes so there may be a change-up in this one and if they bear fruit, they could be all over the Jaguars quickly.

Simply put, while Gus Bradley’s team are showing small signs of improvement, they will have to wait until next year before they can notch up their first win in the UK.

4/6 – Detroit Lions to beat Minnesota Vikings

Detroit finally won last week, albeit in overtime. But the monkey is finally off their back and that will be a huge relief for Jim Caldwell and his team.

It might have been against the Chicago Bears but that one victory could be a catalyst for a bit of a run, something that this team is perfectly capable of with the talent on their roster.

The Vikings have flattered to deceive, looking like playoff hopefuls one week to basement dwellers in the next. That trend will not change this week.

They sneaked past an under-powered Kansas City Chiefs last week and the Lions will punish them when they make the same mistakes in this NFC North divisional game.

10/21 – Miami Dolphins to beat Houston Texans

Dan Campbell’s interim-era started with a bang last week as Miami ran out comfortable winners against the Tennessee Titans and the relief was palpable within their ranks.

Their defence finally got going and it was real tour-de-force, something that will strike fear into the hearts of every Texans player come Sunday afternoon.

Houston have done some good things on offence, DeAndre Hopkins is having a real breakout year but the rest haven’t done enough to push the team forward.

In reality, Bill O’Brien’s squad are underachieving and they should be facing a real wake-up call against a resurgent Dolphins team.

10/17 – Washington Redskins to beat Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Despite losing in New York, the Redskins should take a few positives from a game that seemed to all of a sudden get out of hand.

Their defence played well for the majority and this team can force plenty of turnovers, something Tampa Bay quarterback Jamies Winston is all too keen to help with.

The Buccaneers haven’t moved too much this season and while they have some interesting pieces, they still are a team that will likely be picking in the top five of the draft again next year.

So long as Kirk Cousins keeps it simple and Washington get their run game going, this should be a pretty one-sided affair.

31/20 – Dallas Cowboys to beat the New York Giants

Pinning your hopes on Matt Cassel has always been a risky thing but Dallas haven’t been too bad since losing their two best offensive players to injury.

They still have a superb offensive line, they have catching threats and a defence that is slowly growing in strength as players come back from suspension.

Tom Coughlin’s team, on the other hand, were utterly woeful on Monday night and a repeat performance could gift the Cowboys the division.

The Giants couldn’t get any solid offence going, their defence gave away stupid penalties against a dreadful Philadelphia Eagles offence and they’ll face another humiliating loss to a weakened divisional rival in this one.

A £10 bet on the five-fold accumulator returns £192.51*.
