Falcons at Lions
The reeling Falcons simply have to have this one.
Broncos at Cowboys
Denver in a squeaker in a matchup of solid teams.
Chargers at Redskins
The season is slipping away for the Redskins. The Chargers are better, and they need a win in the unforgiving AFC playoff chase.
Ravens at Bengals
The Bengals showed last weekend, even in losing to the Colts, that they can play with anyone.
Lock of the Week
Jaguars at Cardinals
It's a week without a true lock, but the Jags are a decidedly better team.
Upset of the Week
Packers at Eagles
The Packers aren't very good at all. But the Eagles have nothing left, physically or emotionally.
Games of the Week
Bears at Buccaneers
The Bears are for real, yes. But so are the Bucs.
Giants at Seahawks
This could be the game that determines home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs.
Steelers at Colts (Monday night)
The Steelers have a shot to hang a loss on the Colts. But their chances are diminished because there's no way of knowing how effective Ben Roethlisberger will be in his return from knee surgery.
Patriots at Chiefs
Another close one, but the champs are starting to play better.
Panthers at Bills
Carolina needs to reestablish itself after last weekend's dismal showing against the Bears.
Dolphins at Raiders
The Dolphins are fading, and the Raiders are coming off a nice win over the Redskins.
Rams at Texans
The Texans are dismal. But they're at home, and the Rams aren't much better without injured QB Marc Bulger.
49ers at Titans
The bad teams are all playing each other this weekend, aren't they?
Browns at Vikings
The Vikes aren't generating any offense, but they're finding ways to win lately.
Saints at Jets (Sunday night)
Please, please find something else to do with your Sunday night.
Last Week: 8-8
