The visitors easily covered as field goal favorites, while under was the correct call on the 44.5-point total line.

Week 2: Miami Dolphins 24, New England Patriots 17

The visiting Dolphins struck first with a 23-yard field goal and then proceeded to take a 17-3 lead at halftime. The Patriots came back to make it interesting, but it wasn’t enough in a seven-point defeat. Highlights of the game included a pair of TD runs from Raheem Mostert. Miami got the cover as a two-point road favorite, while the total sailed under the 46-point line.

Week 3: Pittsburgh Steelers 23, Las Vegas Raiders 18

The Raiders kicked off the scoring in front of the home crowd with a 32-yard TD strike from Jimmy Garoppolo to Davante Adams. The Steelers took control of the game from there and went into the final frame with a 23-7 lead. Las Vegas came back to make the score respectable but came up short in a five-point defeat. Pittsburgh got the cover as a three-point road dog, with the total going under the 44-point line.

Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs 23, New York Jets 20

The defending champion Chiefs visited the Jets as 8.5-point favorites. After they got out to a quick 17-0 lead in the first quarter, it looked as though they were set to cruise to an easy win. New York woke up and made a game of it, tying it at 20-20 heading into the fourth quarter. Kansas City escaped with the win on a Harrison Butker 26-yard field goal. The underdog Jets covered, while over was the right choice on the 41-point total.

Week 5: San Francisco 49ers 42, Dallas Cowboys 10

It was expected to be a competitive affair for these longtime rivals as the Cowboys visited the 49ers. The hosts had other ideas. San Francisco got out to a quick 14-point lead and never looked back, exiting with a 32-point win. Brock Purdy and George Kittle hooked up for three TDs during the dominant victory. The 49ers got the easy 3.5-point cover and nearly cleared the 45.5-point over/under on their own.

Week 6: Buffalo Bills 14, New York Giants 9
