Week 4 Picks- Previews and Predictions
Week 4 kicked off last night with the Baltimore Ravens earning a hard fought 23-16 win over the Cleveland Browns. Regular referees were back in action for the first time this season and this will be the first week that we will see regular officiating crews in charge of all the games.
Looking ahead to some of the biggest games this week and there are plenty of great games to watch on Sunday.
There is an exciting NFC East clash in store in Philadelphia as the 2-1 Giants visit the 2-1 Eagles. Another standout game to watch will be in Green Bay as the struggling New Orleans Saints take on a Packers team off the back of a highly controversial defeat to the Seattle Seahawks.
Those are just some of the games in store this week and there is sure to be plenty a dramatic decrease in blown calls now that the replacement refs are no longer around. Now without further ado, here are my picks for Week 4.
