NFL Predictions: Week 4 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts pick every winner for every game on the Week 4 slate.

It may be too soon to call it proof of parity but a look at the NFL standings entering Week 4 does show a lot of similarities. Twenty-seven of the 32 teams are either 2-1 or 1-2. The only outliers are the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles (both 3-0), Las Vegas Raiders (0-3), Indianapolis Colts (1-1-1), and Houston Texans (0-2-1).

Less than a week after beating Buffalo at home, Miami will take on defending AFC champion Cincinnati on "Thursday Night Football." On Sunday, the action begins with the first overseas game of the season as Minnesota and New Orleans will play in London. The 1 p.m. window will feature a pair of intriguing divisional games (Washington at Dallas, Tennessee at Indianapolis) as well as a matchup of early MVP candidates when Josh Allen's Bills and Lamar Jackson's Ravens square off. Also, the surprising Jaguars will head to Philadelphia in a game that will mark former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson's return to the City of Brotherly Love. He helped the team win a Super Bowl during his tenure, so surely he'll get a warm reception at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, right?

The later-afternoon lineup consists of only three games, including a key AFC West matchup between Denver and Las Vegas. Plenty of attention will be paid to the New England-Green Bay game as well since it will be Brian Hoyer's first start for the Patriots in relief of an injured Mac Jones.

Speaking of quarterbacks, fans get to see Patrick Mahomes vs. Tom Brady one more time in a Chiefs-Buccaneers Super Bowl LV rematch on "Sunday Night Football." Week 4 concludes with a more recent postseason redo – last season's NFC Championship Game – when the Rams and 49ers resume their rivalry on "Monday Night Football."
