As Week 3 prepares to come to a close with the "Monday Night Football" matchup between the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins, it's time to start looking ahead to Week 4.
The Week 4 slate doesn't have those huge spreads that we saw in Week 3, but there are still a few double-digit margins on the board and some potentially heated divisional games on the docket.
The week kicks off as usual on Thursday night with a game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers, a matchup that heading into the season was thought of as a potential NFC Championship game preview. The Packers are 4.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook and the game has a total of 46.
"Sunday Night Football" gives us another preseason potential NFC Championship matchup with the Dallas Cowboys heading to New Orleans to take on the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints come in as 3-point home underdogs after an impressive road win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 with backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater under center. The total sits at 45.5.
Week 4's "Monday Night Football" gives us a divisional matchup with a storied, and at times ugly, history. The 0-3 Bengals will visit the 0-3 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bengals came into the season projecting to be one of the league's lesser teams and the injury to A.J. Green surely hasn't helped. While the Steelers saw their defense struggle in Week 1, losing franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the season in Week 2 hasn't made things any easier for them either.
Outside of the three primetime night games, we do get some other interesting matchups, including some between division rivals. The New England Patriots are 7.5-point road favorites against the Buffalo Bills. The New York Giants are 3-point home favorites against the Washington Redskins, the Cleveland Browns travel to the Baltimore Ravens as 6-point road underdogs and lastly the Minnesota Vikings head to Soldier Field in Chicago to face off with the Bears, who are 3-point home favorites.
The largest spread of the week, not surprisingly, goes to the Los Angeles Chargers, who will be visiting the lowly Miami Dolphins and are 16.5-point road favorites. The highest over/under is in the Chiefs vs. Lions game, with a total of 53.5. The lowest total is in the Jaguars vs. Broncos game, currently set at 37.5.
