Seattle Seahawks at Tennessee Titans

The Seahawks have been shockingly bad on offense this season. Russell Wilson has only one passing touchdown through two games and their running game has not really gotten going. The benching of Eddie Lacy and emergence of Chris Carson might help with the running game, but it remains to be seen just how good they can be. It is not unusual for Pete Carroll’s teams to start slow before finishing strong, but it is still early in the season. On the other side of the field, the Titans are likely going to be forced to turn to Derrick Henry thanks to an injury suffered by DeMarco Murray last week. That change may actually make them better, though, because Henry is an incredibly talented runner.

Cincinnati Bengals at Green Bay Packers

The Bengals were so bad on offense to start this season that their offensive coordinator has already been fired. The new offensive coordinator, Bill Lazor, had some fairly impressive seasons under Chip Kelly and with the Miami Dolphins. Expect to see an uptick in production from A.J. Green and the Bengals’ receiving backs, Giovani Bernard and Joe Mixon. The Packers’ top two wide receivers, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, are both questionable going into this one but it sounds like Nelson will be good to go. Cincinnati’s offensive line is bad and Andy Dalton does not handle pressure well so we could see a lot of sacks and turnovers in this one if Lazor is unable to work a miracle.
