New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
For the record – I picked the Falcons, but I was down in Mexico without the internet. I will void this game from the season record.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Buffalo Bills
Historically, the Jags have played well in colder climates and Chad Henne played at Michigan. Still, this is usually the time of year that the Bills rattle off a few wins and give their fans false hope for next season.
Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears
Jay Cutler makes the Bears a much better team. The Seahawks have a ferocious pass rush which could put Cutler in peril, but the Bears defence should be able to slow down the ‘Hawks.
Indianapolis Colts @ Detroit Lions
The Lions deserved to win against the Texans, which shows me they’re putting together whatever fell apart between last season and this one.
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
The Packers have looked vulnerable lately, but won’t drop an important divisional game at home.
Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans
The Texans pulled out a win on Thanksgiving, but their defence looks shaky. They need to put an exclamation mark on this one.
Carolina Panthers @ Kansas City Chiefs
Cam Newton looked like a star on Monday night (albeit against the joke that is the Eagles). Encore this Sunday at Arrowhead.
San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams
The last time these two teams played, they tied. San Fran has Colin Kaepernick this time.
New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins
The Patriots have been crushing teams. They will put up points the Fins can’t match.
Arizona Cardinals @ New York Jets
Both teams are in a downward spiral. It sounds ridiculous, but this might be the only week the Jets have the advantage at quarterback.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Denver Broncos
Don’t write off the Bucs. They have a lot of young talent and have been playing extremely well. The Broncos defence should have a tough day, but the trip to Mile High will not be friendly to Tampa.
Cleveland Browns @ Oakland Raiders
Trent Richardson can light this team up on the ground, but I can’t pick Brandon Weeden over Palmer on the road.
Cincinnati Bengals @ San Diego Chargers
Is it time for the Chargers late season push? This game is paramount for the Bengals, as they need to capitalize on winnable games with Big Ben out for the Steelers.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens
No Ben? No chance.
>Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys
Dallas still has a chance and with a banged-up Eagles roster, they should capitalize at Jerry’s world.
New York Giants @ Washington Redskins
Eli is back to his winning ways
