Cowboys (10-1) @ Vikings (6-5)
Minnesota – The team with one of the hottest defenses of the season should feed off the home crowd and finally force some mistakes from a Dallas offense averaging 157 per game on the ground.
Dolphins (7-4) @ Ravens (6-5)
Baltimore – The NFC North leaders get Ryan Tannehill on a chilly day up north and capitalize on a late game bad throw (or sack) that ends Miami’s streak.
Chiefs (8-3) @ Falcons (7-4)
Atlanta – The Falcons can score, a lot, fast. Kansas City’s defense and special teams can strike quick… but their offence will need to put up points, too.
Lions (7-4) @ Saints (5-6)
Detroit – Maybe these Lions have figured it out. It helps they can get in the end zone at about the same rate as Brees.
Rams (4-7) @ Patriots (9-2)
New England – They won’t need Gronkowski to win this one against a rookie QB making his second start inside a hostile Gillette Stadium.
Broncos (7-4) @ Jaguars (2-9)
Denver – But if Trevor Siemien can’t go the Jags have a chance to sneak one away and really hurt Denver’s playoff hopes.
Texans (6-5) @ Packers (5-6)
Green Bay – I’m not too concerned about Aaron Rodgers hamstring. It won’t stop him from throwing three scores in this one.
Eagles (5-6) @ Bengals (3-7-1)
Bengals – Both teams NEED a win. Andy Dalton and Jeremy Hill show they can still make big plays without a strong running game. Wentz is mediocre.
49ers (1-10) @ Bears (2-9)
San Francisco – A win is a win, however the loser is in the driver’s seat for the #2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft…
Bills (6-5) @ Raiders (9-2)
Oakland – It’s a trap game. If this game were in Buffalo I would say there’s an upset chance. But I’m also not dumb enough to go against Derek Carr, who has led five fourth quarter comebacks.
Giants (8-3) @ Steelers (6-5)
Pittsburgh – Two of the Giants three losses have come on the road and they’re going up against a top-8 passing attack.
Redskins (6-4-1) @ Cardinals (4-6-1)
Washington – When Kirk Cousins gets hot we all hear about it, he’s averaging 69.5% completion percentage during his team’s three game win streak.
Buccaneers (6-5) @ Chargers (5-6)
San Diego – This could be one of those games where Jameis Winston tries too hard to make big plays and the Chargers defense feeds off of it.
Panthers (4-7) @ Seahawks (7-3-1)
Seattle – This was to be such a good matchup at the beginning of the season. The Seahawks defense will crowd Cam and force other players to try to beat them.
Colts (5-6) @ Jets (3-8)
New York – The Jets had one job last week and couldn’t close the deal. Andrew Luck looks to return from a concussion but something tells me if they get up the Jet’s won’t let another quality win slip away.
