Against the Arizona Cardinals the 49ers are 2-0, against the rest of the NFL they are 0-11, the 49ers won’t see the Cardinals again this year, and they likely wont win either. Take the Redskins coming off a strong game against the Eagles.
The Panthers are one win away from .500 after a 1-7 start. However they will not reach it this week, as they have always struggled against the Falcons even losing last year on the way to the Super Bowl while the Falcons were struggling.

The Buccaneers have played better in recent weeks, but can they win by more then a Touchdown, hard to say especially against a Saints team that has given them headaches in the past few years look for it to be close but for Tampa to get the win.
