Welcome to London everyone, as the NFL makes its way to the English capital for the first of a 3 game set.
It’s all eyes on the big smoke this Sunday, as the Saints and Vikings battle it out in north London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
It’s going to be a wet and windy day with no Jameis, but that won’t stop the fans from enjoying another great game here in the UK.
With all of this excitement, Wade & Ryan bash out their Week 4 picks, in another ribald podcast of adventure.

Which games are you looking for on Sunday?
Vikings (2-1) -3 vs Saints (2-1) +43.5
Are you ready for some football London? It’s the first big game in the city, as we contend with transit strikes, the London marathon, and the wet and wild remnants of hurricanes from across the pond.
Historically these games are low scoring? How about this one?
Ryan likes the Likes here to take advantage of a humbled Saints team that’s missing a whole bunch of pieces. Minnesota has a compliment of speedsters on their squad who can cause havoc for the Saints D all day long, and will look to feast on the ravaged Saints.
Wade thinks that this is going to be a slow, grinding game. With many young players travelling abroad for the first game, London games historically start slow…and maybe continue that way.
Low scoring, but D focused, Wade likes the Saints to keep it close.
Ryan-Vikings 27 Saints 17
Wade-Saints 20 Vikings 17
LA Chargers (1-2) -5 vs Texans (0-2-1) +44.5
What the what Chargers? We thought you guys were supposed to be beasts this year? Maybe they forgot the ‘s’?
LA has struggled to achieve the heights of expectation, while the Texans are exactly where we thought they would be.
Ryan likes a get right game for the Chargers, with a chance to flourish against a hapless Houston squad.
It’s time for JH to ‘light it up.’
Wade agrees that this is the chance to feel better by beating up on the Texans, to get your head right.
The Texans have too much of nothing to be something, and 2022 will burn on like another familiar season.
Ryan-Chargers 28 Texans 17
Wade-Chargers 28 Texans 14
Seahawks (1-2) vs -4 Lions (1-2) +41.5
Eeesh, this battle of 1-2 teams is a match suited for a next day, 40 minute recap.
Seattle has been barely bubbling under Geno Smith, while the running game actually starts to take hold.
Pete Carroll needs to make some statements that the kitchen is still clean, even if the cook is long gone.
Everyone and their monkey uncle thought that the Lions would be top of the pops this year, after getting the feels from them on HBO’s Hard Knocks.
Dan Campbell is fuelled by caffeine and has the energy to rock any joint, so what’s happening?
Ryan thinks this is a good chance for the Lions to grab the mane, and the win in a tight game versus Seattle.
Wade too thinks that this will be a close game, that will start out with a Lions roar, but eventually the sea birds will sog their way back to keep it close.
Ryan- Lions 24 Seahawks 20
Wade-Lions 28 Seahawks 26
Jaguars (2-1) vs -6.5 Eagles (3-0) +48.5
Who would have thunk that this would be the game of the week that everyone is keen to watch?
The Eagles are pouring on the points, while the Jaguars have finally emerged from the multiverse with a calibre squad.
It’s the Doug Pederson revenge game! How cold will this dish be served?
Ryan is jagging up that hill, buoyed by their recent wins, he thinks that TL and the boys can shake out a win here. He likes the Jaguars to upset in a tight one.
Wade isn’t convinced that Trevor can spoil Jalen’s day. The Eagles D and Hurts’ legs have made short work of many an opponent. This one could get ugly.
Ryan-Jaguars 27 Eagles 24
Wade-Eagles 38 Jaguars 20
