This game could be closer than I predict, but I still think that it is going to be a blowout.
Plus, who is going to cover Megatron when the Lions have the ball on offense?
Prediction: Lions 30, 49ers 13

The Pittsburgh defense has to be chomping at the bit, knowing that they will go against Jags rookie QB Blaine Gabbert this week.
Considering that they are first in the league in passing yards allowed with just 174 yards per game, Gabbert will likely struggle this weekend.
Couple that with how strong Big Ben and the Steelers pass offense have been, and you have a recipe for disaster for Jacksonville.
Prediction: Steelers 35, Jaguars 12

The Pats offense has been nearly unstoppable this season with MVP QB Tom Brady behind the helm.
Veteran wideout Wes Welker is on pace for over 2,000 receiving yards, and New England is very hard to defeat at home.
There's no way that Dallas and their inconsistent QB play is going to have a chance in this one.

I believe that this will be the game where the Falcons finally break out at home.
They are off to a surprising 2-3 start to the season, which hardly anyone expected going into the year.
This weekend, they will face a struggling 1-4 Carolina team that does not have the firepower on defense to match up against Matt Ryan and the Falcons passing offense.
Prediction: Falcons 34, Panthers 13
