The Denver Broncos are on a bye week this Sunday, but three of their five next opponents are playing this weekend (the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs are also on byes). At the top of that list are the Miami Dolphins. They play the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. The Dolphins opened as six-point underdogs to the Jets, according to Odds Shark, and that line has shifted up a point or two since then. The Dolphins are winless while the Jets are looking to get back on track. The Broncos play the Dolphins on Oct. 23 in Miami and then host the Jets on Nov. 17.

The Detroit Lions are perfect to start the season and they will look to move to 6-0 with a victory over the equally surprising 4-1 San Francisco 49ers. The Lions opened at six-point favorites, but the line had moved down to four points since then. While the odds makers see a close game, the Lions have proven to be up to many challenges. Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are going to be tough for the 49ers to stop.
