The first nuclear moment of the Survivor season has arrived, and the only hope is that you weren’t caught in the wreckage.
The Cowboys’ loss to the Cardinals sent shockwaves throughout the Survivor world, proving that an NFL season is full of surprises.
With only a handful of games with large point spreads in Week 4, it won’t be easy to navigate.
Here’s a breakdown of NFL Week 4 when it comes to Survivor.
Survivor Week 4 Best Picks
Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers
Once again, the Cardinals are at the epicenter of the Survivor landscape.
This time, however, they head on the road to take on, arguably, the best team in the NFL – although similar things were said about Dallas before the Cardinals put forth a dominating performance.
A week later, San Francisco is a two-touchdown favorite and find themselves perched at No. 1 in our NFL power rankings. Christian McCaffrey scores a touchdown every single week, and he’s more than capable of claiming more than one here. Add in the 49ers’ defense, which is bound to have another strong performance, and you have a blowout in the making.
Arizona wrecked one Survivor week, it won’t do so again here.

Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Jets
A healthy Aaron Rodgers would have changed this game drastically, although the Jets (unfortunately) don’t have that.
Zach Wilson is the quarterback, and that’s great news for the Chiefs. While Wilson has struggled, the Jets’ offensive line has not played particularly well.
Again, that’s good news for Kansas City – and all future opponents for that matter.
The Chiefs just blew out the Bears, flashing on both offense and defense. Patrick Mahomes was his normal, productive self, and his brilliance will travel. While New York has the luxury of playing this game at home, it won’t be enough.
The Jets’ defense can keep New York in the game for a while, but this team is just limited. Kansas City wins by double digits.

Survivor Week 4 Sleeper
Jacksonville Jaguars vs Atlanta Falcons
The Jaguars had a dreadful Week 3, losing to the Texans by 20 points.
Offensively, Jacksonville turned the ball over twice and couldn’t turn yards into points. Defensively, the Jags made rookie C.J. Stroud look like a seasoned vet.
It was indeed a rough week, although this is a get-right matchup. The Falcons are 2-1, although the offense struggled mightily against the Lions in Week 3. And wins against Carolina and Green Bay don’t exactly tell us much at this point of the year.
The Jags have too much talent to lose a game of this nature, especially at home. Jacksonville responds in a major way. In a bind, the Jaguars are a solid play.
Survivor Week 4 Team To Save For Future
Dallas Cowboys vs New England Patriots
If you didn’t use Dallas last week, congratulations. With that being said, this isn’t the time to do so.
First, what was that?
Arizona is due a fair amount of credit for pushing the Cowboys in all phases. Still, Dak Prescott was off just enough, and the Dallas offense just never found its footing. It could well do so at home this week, although this feels like a good time to gauge just what this team has in store.
Despite a down week, Prescott is still among the favorites in NFL MVP odds.
While the Bill Belichick mystique isn’t quite what it used to be, there is still some magic there. It would be a surprise to see New England keep up in this game, but that Week 3 blunder by Dallas is enough to take a pause entirely.
Survivor Week 4 Chalk Team That Could Lose
Minnesota Vikings @ Carolina Panthers
The Vikings are 0-3, and there are games against the Chiefs and 49ers on the horizon.
While those games will have no impact on what happens against Carolina on Sunday, it does speak to a mindset that could be brewing. This does not look and feel like a playoff team at the moment, and relief could be only temporary.
Enter a sleepy road trip against an 0-3 team that has played two of its first three games on the road. While the health of Bryce Young will be a question mark, Carolina’s offense has shown some life in recent weeks.
Kirk Cousins is more than capable of leading Minnesota to a win, but the emotional state of Minnesota is something worth monitoring. The dog feels very live here.
