Week 4 NFL Excitement: Revenge in the North, London Showdown, and Playoff Previews
Week 4 could be the best round of games yet. Every primetime game will be must-see TV. Thursday Night Football features an NFC North battle between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
Green Bay will have revenge on its mind after Detroit spoiled its hopes for a postseason berth in the 2022 regular-season finale. The Packers could also quickly flip the script in the North, as NFL odds tabbed the Lions as the favorite to win the division in the offseason and Green Bay was the last choice. Detroit has gone 8-2 against the spread (ATS) in the last 10 meetings. Will this Week 4 meeting be a passing of the baton with the Lions becoming the new King of the North?
The NFL will also kick off its International Series with the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars battling in London bright and early at 9:30 a.m. ET. This is the first of back-to-back games for the Jaguars across the pond. Jacksonville has the most trips to London with nine appearances. This is beginning to spark rumors of the Jags relocating to the capital of England, as the league continues to eye an international expansion. This is simply talk and nothing more. Do not buy into this rumor.
Week 4 also features excellent games for Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football. The Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets will collide on Sunday. New York’s difficult schedule continues after facing the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys in the first two weeks of the season. This could be a preview of a postseason clash, as the Chiefs and Jets are among the NFL lines’ favorites to win the AFC.
NFC Battles and Divisional Duels: Week 4’s Intriguing NFL Matchups
The Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants may not be considered contenders. However, this is an intriguing battle between NFC foes. Both teams are looking to break through in the weak conference that is led by the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. This will also feature a duel between two of the most underrated quarterbacks in the league – Geno Smith and Daniel Jones, who were rewarded with hefty extensions in the offseason.
Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET slot also features a couple of intriguing divisional rivalries. The Miami Dolphins will pay a visit to the Buffalo Bills. The result of this game could have big implications as the season progresses, as both teams are expected to contend for the AFC East title. In the last 10 meetings, the Dolphins are 5-4-1 ATS and have covered three consecutive meetings.
The Cleveland Browns also have a chance to establish themselves as a contender in the AFC North against the Baltimore Ravens. NFL odds for Week 4 will likely favor the Ravens, who are led by quarterback Lamar Jackson. This series is evenly split at 5-5 ATS over the last 10 games.
The New England Patriots visiting the Dallas Cowboys should be the best matchup in the second slot of Sunday games. This could be a defensive battle with two elite units clashing. The under is 3-1 over the last four matchups.
The 49ers playing host to the Arizona Cardinals will likely be the most lopsided result of the week. The sportsbook has the 49ers as a Super Bowl contender, while the Cardinals could finish as the worst team in the NFL. The Washington Commanders against the Eagles is another game that could get ugly quickly.
If you like rivalries, this could be the week to tune in with the Lions-Packers, Dolphins-Bills and Ravens-Browns.
As the thrilling Week 4 action in the NFL comes to an end, fans eagerly turn their attention to the exciting matchups lined up for NFL Week 5 Odds.
