NFL Week 4 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts predict winners for every game, including the Rams hosting the Vikings for "Thursday Night Football"

While there were no ties in the NFL in Week 3 that didn't mean there weren't any surprises to come from the games. In fact, it was pretty much the opposite. Not only did the Browns win for the first time in 635 days; the Bills shocked previously undefeated Minnesota on the Vikings' home field; while the Matt Patricia-led Lions knocked off Bill Belichick's Patriots on Sunday night.


So as we get ready for Week 4 where does that leave the state of the NFL? For starters, there are just three undefeated teams remaining — the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams and the Miami Dolphins. Just as everyone predicted heading into the season, right?


There also are three teams still searching for their first victory — the Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders. Oh and we have four teams (Cleveland, Green Bay, Minnesota and Pittsburgh) all sitting at 1-1-1. How's that for parity?


As for this week's schedule, things get started off strong with Minnesota making the cross-country trek to take on the Rams for "Thursday Night Football." Both teams have some injury issues and the Vikings' no-show last week against the Bills takes some of the luster off of this matchup, but it should still be an entertaining contest.


There are five divisional matchups on tap, including Miami looking to put even more distance between itself and New England, which has lost two in a row. Baltimore and Pittsburgh also will renew acquaintances in the Steel City for "Sunday Night Football."


Baker Mayfield will make his first start for Cleveland as the Browns aim for consecutive victories for the first time since Weeks 8-10 of the 2014 season (let that sink in for a moment) as they hit the road to take on Oakland. Meanwhile, Josh Rosen will make his first start for Arizona at home against NFC West rival Seattle and fellow rookies Josh Allen and Sam Darnold face Green Bay and Jacksonville, respectively, on the road.


But the hottest quarterback of all, Patrick Mahomes, will get to show his stuff on "Monday Night Football" as Kansas City heads to Denver to face the Broncos. Will Von Miller and company be the ones that finally slow down the Chiefs' explosive offense?


So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 4? Athlon's own Rob Doster (AthlonDoster) and John Gworek (JohnGworek), along with contributor Bryan Fischer (BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
