NFL Week 4 Betting Lines
Fall is in the air. The leaves are changing, the weather is getting cooler, but the action on the gridiron is heating up. This is a big week for every team as only one team that has started the season 0-4 has gone on to make the playoffs. The 1992 San Diego Chargers started 0-4 and rallied to finish 11-5, but they are the exception that proves the rule. If you don’t have at least one win by this point of the season, you aren’t going to make the playoffs, no matter how talented you might appear to be on paper.
NFL Week 4 Schedule & Lines
Denver is one of the most intriguing teams coming into the 2020 season, but the Broncos have a tough stretch to start the year. They will play five teams projected to finish .500 or better in their first seven games and this Thursday Night Football game against the New York Jets is one of Denver’s most winnable games. Both teams are led by their defenses, and they also have young quarterbacks that are looking to prove themselves in the league. Sam Darnold and Drew Lock have both flashed some potential, but no one knows whether they will take the next step.
The Titans were the Cinderella team of the 2019 NFL Playoffs. Tennessee went into New England and knocked off the defending Super Bowl champions and then followed that up by stunning the No. 1 seed Baltimore Ravens in their place. They couldn’t overcome Kansas City in the AFC Championship Game, but they showed that they can win with Ryan Tannehill under center. The league’s leading rusher Derrick Henry paces this offense, yet he could have a hard time running against the Pittsburgh Steelers front seven this week. Pittsburgh had one of the best run defenses in the NFL in 2019, and that unit could be even better.
Justin Herbert may be ready to make his first start this week when the Los Angeles Chargers travel across country to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Herbert was selected to be this team’s next franchise quarterback, but Tyrod Taylor is expected to start at least the first few games while the rookie from Oregon gets adjusted to the NFL. The Chargers will look much different on offense without Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon III, but this defense could improve by leaps and bounds with a healthy Derwin James and Chris Harris Jr. and Linval Joseph being added in free agency.
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs might smell blood in the water if the New England Patriots get off to a slow start. The Patriots have dominated the AFC for the last two decades, but there are some real concerns about this team heading into this season. This offense might sputter early on without Tom Brady under center, and they can’t get into a shootout with the Chiefs offense.
The 49ers will be thinking about last year’s Super Bowl for a long time. San Francisco had a 10-point lead on Kansas City in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LIV, but the 49ers gave up 21 points in five minutes in the final frame to miss out on tying Pittsburgh and New England as the most successful franchise in the Super Bowl era. They are the favorites to win the NFC this season though, and the Philadelphia Eagles know the road to Tampa goes through Santa Clara.
This is a make or break season for Dan Quinn. Quinn barely kept his job at the end of last year after Atlanta closed out the season 6-2, but the Falcons need to make the postseason for Arthur Blank to bring the head coach back for another year. Green Bay is 12-5 in Lambeau Field against Atlanta all-time, and the Falcons haven’t won in Wisconsin since 2008.
