Steelers at Bengals (Sunday 1pm)

The Bengals lead the division at 8-3-1, but do you really trust them in a big spot?

Finally, the Lions get a breather.
Winner: Lions

Texans at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

Do you really think Ryan Fitzpatrick can throw 5 TD's again?

Winner: Dolphins

Will Rex Ryan let Geno Smith throw the ball this week?
Winner: Vikings

Panthers at Saints (Sunday 1pm)

New Orleans finally looked like itself last Sunday at Pittsburgh. Reality or just a mirage?

Denver may not need to throw a pass in this one. Run left.  Run right.  Run middle.

Maybe Oakland could trade for Jim Harbaugh during the middle of this one and save us all the rumor mill for the next 2 months.

Seahawks at Eagles (Sunday 4:25pm)

Game of the day, part 1.  If Seattle is really back, this one will prove it.
Winner: Eagles

Winner: Patriots

Bears at Lions (Thursday 12:30pm)

The question is where did the Lions offense go and when is it coming back?
Winner: Lions

Eagles at Cowboys (Thursday 4:30pm)

Winner moves ahead in the race for the NFC North.  Do you trust Mark Sanchez in a big spot?
Winner: Cowboys

Seahawks at 49ers (Thursday 8:30pm)

Seattle seemingly has its swag back after knocking off the Cardinals last Sunday. The loser here most likely doesn't make the playoffs.
Winner: 49ers

Chargers at Ravens (Sunday 1pm)

Two teams going opposite directions.
Winner: Ravens

Browns at Bills (Sunday 1pm)

Six feet of snow might have been the best thing that happened to the Bills.
Winner: Bills

Titans at Texans (Sunday 1pm)

Ryan Fitzpatrick is back at QB for Houston now that Ryan Mallett is out for the year. It shouldn't matter who's at QB vs. Titans.

Redskins at Colts (Sunday 1pm)

So much for RG III vs. Andrew Luck. RG III's days in Dc are done, so it seems.

Giants at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

The Giants aren't very good.  The Jaguars are worse.
Winner: Giants

Panthers at Vikings (Sunday 1pm)

Avoid watching this one at all costs.
Winner: Vikings

So, the Saints lose back-to-back games at home to AFC teams and now they get to go outside in the cold in Pittsburgh! Good luck with that New Orleans.
Winner: Steelers

Raiders at Rams (Sunday 1pm)

The Rams get the moniker of the best 4-7 team of the year so far. If nothing else, this will be a hard fought game on both sides.
Winner: Rams

Bengals at Bucs (Sunday 1pm)

Time for Cincy to exert themselves as the contender they think they are.
Winner: Bengals

Cardinals at Falcons (Sunday 4pm)

Even without a #1 qb and quality running game, the Cards are better than the first place (yes, 4-7 first place) Falcons. A loss and the Cards could be looking at coming back to Atlanta in the playoffs.
Winner: Cardinals

Patriots at Packers (Sunday 4:25pm)

Game of the year candidate! Who will make the mistake - Brady or Rodgers?
Winner: Patriots

Broncos at Chiefs (Sunday 8:30pm)

Will the real KC team stand up? The confident, methodical 7-3 team or the no-show team that lost in Oakland.
Winner: Chiefs

Dolphins at Jets (Monday 8:30pm)

If the Miami have any sights set on the playoffs, this should be a cakewalk against a Jets team that quit on Rex Ryan last Monday night.
Winner: Dolphins

Last week: 12-3
Season: 121-53-1

The Raiders may not go 0-16, but they won't win this week.

Winner: Patriots

Browns at Falcons (Sunday 1pm)

How is Atlanta the first place team in this battle? Welcome back Josh Gordon!
Winner: Falcons

Bucs at Bears (Sunday 1pm)

How can the Bucs only be 2 games out of first place?
Winner: Bears

Bengals at Texans (Sunday 1pm)

The Colts will be so happy to NOT see Jonas Gray this Sunday!

Redskins at 49ers (Sunday 4:25pm)

Sorry RGIII, things won't get better this week.
Winner: 49ers

Ravens at Saints (Sunday 8:30pm)

What has happened to that vaunted Saints offense? If they can't score against Cincy, how can they score against the Ravens?
Winner: Ravens

Bills at Dolphins (Thursday 8:25pm)
Winner stays alive, loser is out of the AFC Playoffs.  These are the games the Dolphins usually lose.

Falcons at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)
As hard as it is to believe, the winner here keeps a good shot at the NFC South Title. Yikes! Cam Newton says he's hurt. We're hurt by watching him lately.
Winner: Falcons

Vikings at Bears (Sunday 1pm)
Can it get any worse for the Bears?
Winner: Bears

Texans at Browns (Sunday 1pm)
Call this one Brady Back-up I - Mallett vs. Hoyer.  Yes, the Browns control their own destiny, as hard as that is to believe.
Winner: Browns

Seahawks at chiefs (Sunday 1pm)
One of the tougher games to call this weekend. KC has rolled at home (minus Week 1), but Seattle seems to gotten its schwag back.
Winner: Chiefs

Bengals at Saints (Sunday 1pm)
Brees vs. Dalton.  Who are you takin - seriously!

Bucs at Redskins (Sunday 1pm)
If you have to watch this game, the NFL should apologize to you.
Winner: Redskins

Raiders at Chargers (Sunday 4pm)
The Chargers desperately needed the bye week to forget about a 3 game losing streak and a 37-0 pasting at Miami. Here comes the winless Raiders.  Stay classy San Diego!
Winner: Chargers

Lions at Cardinals (Sunday 4:25pm)
Could be the game of the day.  Too bad Carson Palmer's torn ACL keeps him out here. Statement game for both teams.
Winner: Cardinals

Eagles at Packers (Sunday 4:25pm)
Light 'em up at Lambeau!
Winner: Packers

Patriots at Colts (Sunday 8:30pm)
Cutler and Manning down.  Luck this week. Stafford, Rodgers and Rivers up next.  New England's murderous road of QB opponents continues. Can Luck survive Revis Island?
Winner: Colts

Steelers at Titans (Monday 8:30pm)
Pittsburgh is 6-4 with losses to the Jets and Bucs, who have a combined 3 wins. Yes, they should be worried about the 2-7 Titans.
