Upset of the Week
Carolina Panthers (+6) over San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco is going to lose a game at some point this year. This week could very easily be that game. The Panthers defense will test the 49ers, which could be the deciding factor. If Carolina is able to generate some turnovers and get some points off of mistakes then they could surprise the 49ers on their home field.
Lock of the Week
New Orleans Saints (-10.5) over Arizona Cardinals
I just think that the Saints are too good of a team to not win and cover this game. Especially if Drew Brees comes back. The Saints will have so much energy if Brees suits up and is good to go. Even if Bridgewater ends up taking the snaps, the Saints will play tough at home. The Cardinals will struggle against the Saints solid defense as well. Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury have their hands full heading into this one and I expect them to leave New Orleans disappointed.
