49ers at Redskins
TV: WDVM-TV-9, WBAL-TV-11, 4 p.m.
Injury Update: San Francisco: C Fred Quillan, knee (D); LB Keena Turner, hamstring (Q); NT Jeff Stover, knee (Q). Washington: WR Calvin Muhammad, ankle (O): DE Tom Beasley, ankle (Q).
Data: 49ers favored by 4 . . . San Francisco (7-5) has been hurt by inconsistent offense, even though QB Joe Montana is NFC's second-rated passer and RB Roger Craig leads conference with 70 receptions. Defense is ranked 11th overall, despite giving up just 193 points, third-fewest in NFL . . . Washington (7-5) must continue to hope QB Jay Schroeder is for real, especially since neither of its top rushers, John Riggins (flu) or George Rogers (concussion) is 100 percent. Browns at Giants
TV: WRC-TV-4, 1 p.m.
Injury Update: Cleveland: G Dan Fike, foot (Q); QB Gary Danielson, shoulder (O). New York: WR Lionel Manuel, hamstring (O).
Data: Giants favored by 5 . . . Browns (6-6) are going for their 300th NFL win, and RB Kevin Mack needs 51 yards to break Jim Brown's team rookie rushing mark of 943 yards. With Danielson unable to play, inconsistent rookie Bernie Kosar (six interceptions) will get his seventh start . . . Giants (8-4) DE George Martin had three sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery last week for NFL's third-rated defense. New York is 5-1 at home, but QB Phil Simms has 14 fumbles. Vikings at Eagles
Injury Update: Minnesota: LB Scott Studwell, thumb (D); WR Leo Lewis, foot (Q); CB Issiac Holt, ankle (Q); RB Darrin Nelson, sternum (Q). Philadelphia: S Wes Hopkins, ankle (D): RB Major Everett, hamstring (D); CB Andre Waters, leg (Q).
Data: Eagles favored by 6 1/2 . . . Vikings (5-7) are 26th in NFL against the run, but Eagles are 22nd in league in rushing. QB Tommy Kramer, despite 11 interceptions in last five games, is expected to throw underneath against Philadelphia's loose secondary . . . Eagles (6-6) will depend on WR Mike Quick (six touchdowns in last five games) for most of its offense. Broncos at Steelers
TV: WMAR-TV-2, 1 p.m.
Injury Update: Denver: RB Sammy Winder, knee (Q). Pittsburgh: QB Mark Malone, toe (O); G Terry Long, knee (D); CB Chris Brown, thigh (D); NT Mark Catano, hamstring (Q); CB Harvey Clayton, ankle (Q).
Data: Steelers favored by 1 1/2 . . . Denver (8-4) QB John Elway threw for three touchdowns last week and has developed into a clutch performer. If he can elude Pittsburgh's rush, look for WR Steve Watson (45 receptions) to be a regular target. Broncos are 3-3 on the road . . . Pittsburgh (6-6) has been hurting at quarterback. Third-stringer Scott Campbell was ineffective last week against Washington, but David Woodley, who has been out with a virus, is expected to start today. Look for RBs Frank Pollard (724 yards) and Walter Abercrombie often against Denver's mediocre rushing defense. PK Gary Anderson has kicked 112 consecutive PATs. Oilers at Bengals
Injury Update: No injuries reported.
Data: Bengals favored by 8 . . . Houston (5-7) is 1-4 on the road, and defense has allowed 53 first downs, 817 yards and 65 points in last two games. QB Oliver Luck passed for career-high 286 yards last week and will likely start in place of Warren Moon (hip) against the NFL's 25th-rated pass defense . . . Cincinnati (5-7) offense hasn't scored a touchdown in two games, but RBs Larry Kinnebrew (516 yards) and James Brooks (675) should find room against Oilers' poor rushing defense. QB Boomer Esiason (hip) and WR Cris Collinsworth (back) are hurting. Patriots at Colts
Injury Update: New England: QB Steve Grogan, knee (O); G Ron Wooten, knee (O); NT Dennis Owens, toe (Q); CB Ernest Gibson, hip (Q). Indianapolis: No injuries reported.
Data: Patriots favored by 6 1/2 . . . New England (8-4) can rely on either the run (RBs Craig James and Tony Collins) or the pass (WRs Irving Fryar and Stanley Morgan) against a defense which has allowed 292 points. QB Tony Eason has regained his starting spot since Steve Grogan's knee injury last week and can throw deep against Colts secondary . . . All three Colts (3-9) wins have come at home, but either QB Mike Pagel (12 interceptions) or backup Matt Kofler (two completions in his only start) will have trouble against the Patriots' eighth-ranked defense. Rams at Saints
TV: WBAL-TV-11, 1 p.m.
Injury Update: No injuries reported.
Data: Rams favored by 6 . . . Rams WR Ron Brown scored three touchdowns last week, two on kickoff returns, and the Los Angeles (9-3) offense has begun to show life. RB Eric Dickerson (835 yards) should open up passing room for QB Dieter Brock, and sixth-rated defense has allowed only 198 points . . . Saints (4-8) have a new coach in Wade Phillips, whose father, Bum, resigned this week, but they have the same poor offense (25th) and defense (23rd). Buccaneers at Packers
Injury Update: Tampa Bay: DE Ron Holmes, back (D); DE Don Fielder, knee (Q); OL Sean Farrell, knee (Q); QB Steve Young, ankle (Q). Green Bay: RB Gary Ellison, wrist (O).
Data: Packers favored by 6 1/2 . . . Tampa Bay (2-10) QB Steve Young may make his second start, but an injury-plagued offensive line will give him little time against the Packers' 18th-ranked secondary. KR Phil Freeman has averaged 26.4 yards on his last seven returns . . . Green Bay (5-7) has not lost to Tampa Bay at home since 1981, but must improve a porous kickoff coverage that has allowed 37.7 yards per return the last two weeks. PK Al Del Greco has made six of his last seven field goal attempts. Bills at Chargers
Injury Update: Buffalo: CB Derrick Burroughs, ankle (Q); G Tim Vogler, knee (Q). San Diego: LB Linden King, back (Q).
Data: Chargers favored by 10 . . . Buffalo (2-10) has scored an NFL-low 162 points, and it is doubtful that former Chargers QB Bruce Mathison can help. Still, WRs Jerry Butler and rookie Andre Reed should test the NFL's worst pass defense . . . San Diego (5-7) has had two straight last-minute losses, even though QB Dan Fouts has passed for a league-high 21 touchdowns. The Chargers' three-back alignment is 23rd in rushing, however, and defenses are keying on WR Wes Chandler (49 receptions) and TE Kellen Winslow. Chiefs at Seahawks
Injury Update: Kansas City: WR Carlos Carson, knee (D); LB Gary Spani, hamstring (Q); RB Herman Heard, hip (Q). Seattle: T Ron Essink, groin (D); QB Dave Krieg, shoulder (Q).
Data: Seahawks favored by 8 . . . Chiefs (4-8) ended a seven-game losing streak by going with youth last week, but their offense has produced only 202 points, and injured WR Carson is new QB Todd Blackledge's lone target. Kansas City defeated Seahawks, 28-7, earlier this season . . . Seattle (6-6) QB Dave Krieg is hurt and slumping, and Monday night replacement Gale Gilbert may get the start. WR Steve Largent has 12 receptions and 229 yards in last two games. Raiders at Falcons
Injury Update: Los Angeles: S Vann McElroy, hamstring (D). Atlanta: No injuries reported.
Data: Raiders favored by 7 . . . Los Angeles (8-4) offense should romp against a defense that has allowed an NFL-high 357 points. RB Marcus Allen (1,236 yards) has rushed for more than 100 yards this season, and QB Marc Wilson (11 touchdowns) is coming off a 238-yard performance last week . . . Atlanta has allowed 53 sacks, and QB David Archer has thrown 12 interceptions. RB Gerald Riggs, with a league-high 1,248 yards, is the only threat. Bears at Dolphins
TV: WJLA-TV-7, WJZ-TV-13, 9 p.m.
Injury Update: Chicago: QB Jim McMahon, shoulder (D); G Mark Bortz, leg (Q); RB Matt Suhey, back (Q). Miami: T Cleveland Green, ankle (D); T Jon Giesler, knee (Q); DE Kim Bokamper, shoulder (Q); DE Doug Betters, knee (Q).
Data: Bears favored by 4 in Monday night game . . .Without McMahon, Chicago (12-0) figures to go predominantly to RB Walter Payton (1,185 yards), who is seeking a record eighth straight 100-yard game. The defense has allowed only three points in its last three games . . . The Miami (8-4) running game has returned behind Tony Nathan and Woody Bennett, but offensive line will be tested by the Bears' rush. Miami needs a win to pull into a tie with Jets for AFC East lead.
KEY: (O) out; (D) doubtful -- 75 percent chance will not play; (Q) questionable -- 50 percent chance will not play.
