NFL: Sunday night football preview

Nine favorites lost last week, including the previously impregnable Buffalo Bills, so strap yourself in for another round of shocks this Sunday.

The NFL's last unbeaten team - the Philadelphia Eagles - will face a stiff test from the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars, but should the only remaining winless team of the 32 - the Las Vegas Raiders - be favored to beat the 2-1 Denver Broncos?

OddsMinnesota Vikings -150, New Orleans Saints +130

There's no better place to start than in London for the first International Series game of 2022 between the Vikings and the Saints.

Minnesota got their 2022 campaign off to another impressive victory over the Green Bay Packers before being brought back down to earth in a crushing loss to the Eagles.

They overturned a 10-point deficit to edge past the Detroit Lions in the final minute of the game last week, but lost star rusher Dalvin Cook to injury.

If Cook can't go this week, there will be more pressure on wide receiver Justin Jefferson to produce again after a couple of fallow weeks.

His matchup with the Saints' defensive backs could be the key to the game as New Orleans' secondary has allowed only 183.7 passing yards per game and held opposing QBs to a league-low 54.3% completion rate.

After losing to a bad Carolina Panthers team last week, the Saints have a lot to clean up in London.

Local weather forecasts are for a sloppy afternoon in the English capital and it could be one to go Under the Total of 42.0 at -110.

NFL - US Sports: 2022/23 NFL season preview

Jalen Hurts leads the league's only unbeaten team into what looks like being a classic 'trap' game for the Eagles.

The Jaguars are the only team in the NFL ranked top-five in both offense and defense and are of course now coached by the man who led Philly to their lone Super Bowl win - Doug Pederson.

He seems to have turned things around pretty quickly in Duval and this matchup should be closer than the line, which favors Philadelphia by almost a touchdown, suggests.

The Jaguars offense completely dismantled a typically strong Los Angeles Chargers defense in Week 3 and will run the ball early to set up Trevor Lawrence for some intermediate throws.

The Eagles rely on Jalen Hurts moving the pocket and using his legs to scramble in a heavy RPO scheme.

In their last seven games against NFC teams, the Jaguars went 0-7 against the spread, but things already look much different under Pederson, whose coaches know all about the Eagles personnel and scheme.

The AFC West was supposed to be the best division in football prior to the season starting, but after three weeks it looks like the most over-hyped as each team has underwhelmed for different reasons.

Russell Wilson was meant to be the missing piece of the jigsaw in Denver, but first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett can't seem to find the picture on the box.

At least Denver's defense is playing lights-out football, allowing only three touchdowns and five field goals to ensure the Broncos hold a winning record.

Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels made plenty of rookie mistakes during his two-year spell in charge at Mile High over a decade ago, and there's been little evidence that he has learned from them in the first three weeks.

After adding elite offensive weapon Davante Adams and defensive enforcer Chandler Jones this offseason, they should be an improved force, but stand as the only 0-3 team in the league.

The Broncos, who are -110 to win with +2.5 points in the Spread, are fortunate to be 2-1, but they have so much scope to get better and should not be rated as underdogs in Vegas.
