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.
Winner: Texans

Redskins at Colts (Sunday 1pm)

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

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

Saints at Steelers (Sunday 1pm)

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.

The Patriots just beat the AFC's best in Denver and Indy, they won't blow it against a Detroit team averaging 15 points on the road.

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: Texans

Jaguars at Colts (Sunday 1pm)

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

Jets vs. Bills (Sunday 1pm)
As of Thursday night, we still didn't know where this game was going to be played due to the Buffalo snowstorm. YIKES! Who needs to prep, right?

It's a shame that most of the country won't see this week's best game.

Redskins at 49ers (Sunday 4:25pm)

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

Winner: Cowboys

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

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

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

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.

Bengals at Saints (Sunday 1pm)

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

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.

Browns at Bengals (Thursday 8:25pm)
These two teams haven't met this late in the season with both teams having a winning record since the mid 80's. Tells you how much each side needs this win.
Winner: Bengals

Titans at Ravens (Sunday 1pm)

The Ravens will be hurting after Sunday night's bruising loss to the Steelers, but it won't take much to top Tennessee.
Winner: Ravens

Chiefs at Bills (Sunday 1pm)

This should be a suprisingly entertaining game. Chiefs D should do just enough.
Winner: Chiefs

Dolphins at Lions (Sunday 1pm)

Calvin Johnson's back for Detroit and that means matchup woes for Miami.
Winner: Lions

Cowboys vs. Jaguars in London (Sunday 1pm)

It looks like Tony Romo will play for Dallas, which should mean a pedestrian win for the 'Boys.
Winner: Cowboys

49ers at Saints (Sunday 1pm)

What has happened in SF? They're 4-4 and as Ron Burgundy would say "that escalated quickly."
Winner: Saints

Steelers at Jets (Sunday 1pm)

12 TD's for Big Ben in the last two weeks. Woeful secondary for NY.  Sounds like it will be a mismatch.  But it won't be. Closer than you think.
Winner: Steelers

Falcons at Bucs (Sunday 1pm)

Atlanta hasn't won since they put 56 against the Bucs in week 3. Time to bookend those wins.
Winner: Falcons

Broncos at Raiders (Sunday 4pm)

Just what the doctor ordered for the Broncos after a full thumping in Foxboro last Sunday.
Winner: Broncos

Rams at Cardinals (Sunday 4:25pm)

The Cardinals are the best team in the NFL, hands down, right now. But beware, this has trap game written all over it.  Just ask the 49ers!
Winner: Cardinals

Giants at Seahawks (Sunday 4:25pm)

Tough week for the G-Men! Get blown out by the Colts on Monday night and then fly 3,000 miles to Seattle to get blown out by the Seahawks.
Winner: Seahawks

Bears at Packers (Sunday 8:30pm)

Packers whooped Bears in Chicago.  Why expect anything different in Green Bay?
Winner: Packers

Panthers at Eagles (Sunday 8:30pm)

The Mark Sanchez experiment continues in Philly.  Can Chip Kelly make any QB look good?
Winner: Eagles

Last week: 10-3
Season: 90-42-1

Maybe the Jags are the remedy for what ails the Bengals these days.
Winner: Bengals

Bucs at Browns (Sunday 1pm)

The road back continues for Cleveland.
Winner: Browns

Cardinals at Cowboys (Sunday 1pm)

The huge wildcard is will QB Tony Romo play or not (back). If not, the Boys could suffer back-to-back home losses.

Eagles at Texans (Sunday 1pm)

Can the Texans score enough points to keep up? Not liking their chances there.
Winner: Eagles

Jets at Chiefs (Sunday 1pm)

Tough spot for Michael Vick to regain his starting job.
Winner: Chiefs

Chargers at Dolphins (Sunday 1pm)

Suddenly, the Bolts look beatable after two straight divisional losses (KC, Denver).  Time to change that.

Redskins at Vikings (Sunday 1pm)

To RG III or not to RG III.  This is the question for Washington.

Can't see the Niners, coming off the bye, letting this chance slip by to maintain pace in the NFC West.
Winner: 49ers

Broncos at Patriots (Sunday 4:25pm)

Brady vs. Manning 16! Home team has won 10 of 15, so Pats find a way in this one.

The road to win number one continues and it won't have a pitstop this week.
Winner: Seahawks

Ravens at Steelers (Sunday 8:30pm)

Colts at Giants (Monday 8:30pm)

Homecoming for RB Ahmad Bradshaw and WR Hakeem Nicks, plus the Colts are still smarting from the 51 the Steelers pasted on them last Sunday.
