It’s taken a while, but we finally have an NFL Week with several marquee games, which is a good thing.

It starts Thursday night with the Philadelphia Eagles at the Carolina Panthers, two 4-1 teams trying to stake a claim as the NFC’s best team.

Then we have the Green Bay Packers at the Minnesota Vikings, the Pittsburgh Steelers at the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and two shocking big games: Rams at Jaguars and Patriots at Jets.

It’s a good week, and I’d like to stay hot with my picks here. I’ve been on a bit of a roll the past two weeks, getting way above .500 straight up and one game below it against the spread.

I’m rolling with the Panthers, Packers, Jaguars and Patriots in the four important games this week. Here are the rest of my picks:

Philadelphia (4-1) at Carolina (4-1)

8:25 p.m. ET (Thursday, CBS)

This is the game of the week, featuring two 4-1 teams. Cam Newton is back playing at a high level, but that Eagles front is tough to handle. Carson Wentz is coming off a big game, but I think he has issues here. Carolina takes it to go to 5-1.

Pick: Panthers 24, Eagles 17
