Baltimore Ravens v. New England Patriots
New England finally gets a chance to play a game against a formidable opponent in 2019. The stout New England defense has barely allowed any points all season long, and the Ravens offense has shown that they can score plenty. Lamar Jackson will be tested early and often against the Pats secondary who loves getting to the ball and causing turnovers. Baltimore will need to control the clock and keep the ball away from Brady if they want to win this game. However, when it comes to my pick I have learned that you never bet against the Patriots. So I wont. Pats win and cover.

New York Giants v. Dallas Cowboys
In Week 1, the Cowboys cruised to a victory over the Giants and it appeared that both teams were headed in much different directions. In Week 9, the teams still seem to be headed in different directions, but maybe not as drastically as it seemed it would play out. Dallas has been up and down and are still very much in need of stringing together some wins. The Giants had a glimmer of hope when Daniel Jones took over at quarterback, but they have since stepped back. I think in this rivalry game the teams will play much closer than the week 1 contest. Dallas gets the win, but the Giants keep it close on Monday Night.
