Green Bay (4-9) at Washington (8-5) -- The Redskins have to be kicking themselves for a wasted opportunity in their loss to the New York Giants. Their offense needs to regain punch and consistency. Pack Coach Bart Starr is apt to give Lynn Dickey more playing time at QB. Washington by 10.
Seattle (7-6) at Kansas City (5-8 -- Jim Zorn takes Seahawk aerial circus to Kansas City where he should have the same kind of success against Chief secondary as was enjoyed by Dan Fouts a week ago. Chiefs continue to improve but lack enough offensive consistency to repeat their early upset in Seattle. Seattle by 2.
Oakland (7-6) at New Orleans (7-6) (Monday) -- Saints remain tied for first in NFC West while Raiders are on the edge of postseason elimination. fOakland's offense will be a stern test for Saint defense that is vulnerable to a solid passing attack, but Raiders' secondary is also vulnerable and will have a hard time containing Manning-Chandler connection. Even.
