3 Bold NFL Predictions for Week 9
Week 8's bold predictions were the best of the year, primarily because we hit on arguably the most improbable prediction we've made this season. To review:
JuJu Smith-Schuster outscored Antonio Brown and by a significant margin. JuJu grabbed seven passes, erupting for 193 yards and a touchdown. Even without his 97-yard touchdown on a blown coverage, Smith-Schuster still would have outscored Brown.
Kareem Hunt indeed failed to finish as a top-12 running back against the vaunted Denver Broncos defense. He rushed for just 46 yards on 22 carries and added another 22 yards receiving, failing to reach 100 scrimmage yards for the first time this season.
Dion Lewis failed to finish as a top-12 play. Although he had decent volume, he couldn't convert any of his 17 touches into a score, tallying 54 total yards.
Let's get into this week's prognostications.
