Coach Ryan, meanwhile, is out for revenge, saying: “These guys came out strong, but that was Week One. This reminds me of the time when in 2002 I was a coach for the New England Patriots and we got beat 31-0 in Week One by the worst team in the league – the Buffalo Bills – but in the last week of the season, much like this rematch, we beat them 31-0 and then went on to win the Super Bowl. That’s all I’m saying. I’m going to put these two footballers in their place!”

Each week, Sky Sports’ NFL experts take on representatives from the wider Sky Sports family and a guest from NFL UK, who this week have British sprinter Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake making their picks.

COACH RYAN PICK: Browns

“The Browns need the game to get in. They better not be dumb enough to play like they did last week [in defeat to the New York Jets], where they never ran the football. I’m tempted to take the Steelers, but not if they’ve got Mason Rudolph playing at quarterback.”

NEVILLE/CARRAGHER PICK: Browns

Carragher: “I love what the Browns are doing this season; Baker Mayfield is starting to look like a No 1 draft pick, so the Browns will win.”

MITCHELL-BLAKE PICK: Browns

Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams

COACH RYAN PICK: Rams

“I’ll go with the Rams here. I know Neil Reynolds loves Kurt Warner, and this John Wolford kid at quarterback could turn out to be the 2020 Warner. He has been bounced around the league, has never even taken a snap in the NFL, but I think he gets them the win here against the Cardinals – I don’t like the body language of Kyler Murray.”

NEVILLE/CARRAGHER PICK: Rams

Neville: “The Rams have an unbelievable record in this one – they’ve won their last seven against the Cardinals – and that’s going to continue on Sunday, I can tell you that for nothing.”

MITCHELL-BLAKE PICK: Cardinals

Washington Football Team @ Philadelphia Eagles

COACH RYAN PICK: Eagles

“The Eagles can’t stop anybody on defence – they gave up 550 yards last week in their loss to the [Dallas] Cowboys – but I like their quarterback Jalen Hurts – he has energised that team. They’ve really got nothing to play for, and Washington have got an unbelievable defensive line which destroyed Philly the first time they played, but I just think the Eagles spoil the party.”

NEVILLE/CARRAGHER PICK: Eagles

Carragher: “Hurts has got the Eagles going at the moment, so I’m going with Philly to win.”

MITCHELL-BLAKE PICK: Eagles
