As could have been expected (because the NFL did not seriously consider my solution to COVID scheduling), the NFL has some major issues as it tries to get every team a full 16-game season during a raging pandemic across the United States.
Lucky teams, like the Eagles who have not been effected, will have a regular week to prepare for their Week 6 opponent. Teams in the AFC who have either dealt with their own positive tests from players and coaches, like the Patriots and Titans — or their upcoming opponents — have seen a constant stream of re-scheduling and uncertainty.
The Titans are supposed to play the Bills on Tuesday. Which will, in turn, cause their scheduled Thursday night game to be moved to Sunday. This doesn’t even account for the nearly dozen other games that have been moved due to COVID issues.
But, as we always do, we’ll give you the odds for the games as if they’re being played. All of the spreads you’ll see below come from TheLines.com’s consensus odds, and you can click over to see how they differ slightly at three different PA sports books — FanDuel, DraftKings and Bet Rivers — to decide where the best value is in Week 6.
Without wasting any more time, let’s get right into it…
There is no game currently scheduled. The Bills-Chiefs game was moved to next week on Monday night to give the Bills more time to prepare.
