Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints – 11/10 1:00 PM ET
Will Osgood, SIS Football Video Scout:
Coming off the Bye week, it appears the Saints will have all of their offensive weapons to go against one of the league’s worst defenses. Alvin Kamara, Jared Cook, and Tre’Quan Smith all practiced on Wednesday. The most important thing in this contest, against what should be an overwhelmed Falcons defense, is the Saints getting their roster back together and gearing up for the stretch run.

Buffalo Bills @ Cleveland Browns – 11/10 1:00 PM ET
Kendal Mirsky, SIS Football Video Scout:
With Kareem Hunt set to come back this week, there is concern for a Bills defense that has shown inside run defense deficiencies since their game against the Dolphins. With Hunt joining an already dominant Nick Chubb in the Cleveland backfield, one would expect the Browns to elect to employ a run-heavy offense on Sunday. There are a lot of other interesting matchups to look forward to in this game as well. The most exciting should be the Odell Beckham vs. Tre’Davious White matchup. With White coming up clutch week after week and Odell struggling to live up to his contract, this could be a big measuring stick game for both players.

New York Giants @ New York Jets – 11/10 1:00 PM ET
Andrew McKeon, SIS Football Video Scout:
It looks like this is the first time all season that the Giants will trot out a different starting offensive line than week one. Center Jon Halapio is doubtful and RT Mike Remmers is questionable, leaving Daniel Jones the most vulnerable he’s been so far this season. With Saquon Barkley only having 14 carries last week, expect there to be a heavy focus on feeding Barkley early and often to take pressure off of Daniel Jones and try and get Barkley and the rest of the offense back on track.

Carolina Panthers @ Green Bay Packers – 11/10 4:25 PM ET
Bruce Schroeder, SIS Football Video Scout:
Look for the Packers to want to come out fast in their return back to Lambeau. The Packers were flat from the get go in Week 9 and were unable to figure anything out the entire game. They allowed the Chargers poor run game to look as though it was one of the best in the NFL. Now they welcome in the Panthers and running back Christian McCaffrey, who is making his claim as an MVP candidate. Look for the Packers to start quick on offense in order to give the defense momentum and confidence to limit McCaffrey’s big play potential. The Packers defense has been one of the worst, if not the worst, in allowing big plays so this will not be an easy task for them to handle.
