Here are Jack Green's NFL predictions for the sixth Sunday of the season, which make up an 13/2 four-fold.


Carolina Panthers to beat Chicago Bears

The Panthers beat the Atlanta Falcons 23-16 last week, meaning they’ve now won three consecutive games since star running back Christian McCaffrey suffered an ankle injury.

Their defence has held their last three opponents to an average of 17.7 points, and they now face a struggling Chicago offense that has scored 31 in the past two weeks combined.

The Bears are 4-1 after narrowly beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Thursday, but they weren’t particularly impressive in that victory and were very poor in a 19-11 defeat to the Indianapolis Colts in week 4.

Detroit Lions to beat Jacksonville Jaguars

The Lions lost 35-29 to the New Orleans Saints a fortnight ago, but they have since had a bye and now face a Jaguars team on a run of four consecutive defeats.

Jacksonville lost 30-14 to the Houston Texans last Sunday and have also been beaten by Miami and Cincinnati this season, who have a combined record of 3-6-1.

The Jaguars have conceded at least 30 points to each of their last four opponents and will struggle to contain a Detroit offense that has star receiver Kenny Golladay back in the line-up and an extra week to prepare.

Minnesota Vikings to beat Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are 0-5 after a 23-16 defeat to the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, which resulted in them firing coach Dan Quinn.

Atlanta have been a mess defensively all season but have also struggled on offense recently, failing to score more than 16 points in each of the past two weeks.

The Vikings haven’t been much better, but they beat the Houston Texans a fortnight ago and came very close to an upset against NFC favourites Seattle last Sunday.

Green Bay Packers to beat Tampa Bay Buccaneers

In a duel between two of the greatest quarterbacks ever, expect Aaron Rodgers to come out on top of Tom Brady.

Rodgers has been in inspired form this season, leading the Packers to a 4-0 record and an average of 38 points per game. He has also had an extra week of rest and preparation after a week 5 bye.

Brady and the Buccaneers are 3-2 after losing 20-19 to the Bears last week, and it’s hard to see this offense – which is missing star receiver Chris Godwin through injury – keeping up with Green Bay on Sunday.
