Indianapolis at Tennessee (Thursday, 8:20pm)
The playoffs begin now for the Colts as they sit 6-6 and one game out in the AFC South. The Titans checked out a few weeks ago.
Cleveland at Buffalo (Sunday 1pm)
If Jake Delhomme continues to play for the Browns, the Bills are the pick.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (Sunday 1pm)
Banged-up, battered, bruised and broken, it doesn’t matter. The Steelers are still better than the Bengals.
Oakland at Jacksonville (Sunday 1pm)
The rollercoaster Raiders come East. That’s a good sign for the Jaguars who continue to ride Maurice Jones-Drew to victories.
Tampa Bay at Washington (Sunday 1pm)
The Redskins continue to be in turmoil and the Bucs continue to beat up on bad teams under .500.
Green Bay at Detroit, Fox (Sunday 1pm)
This one will be tougher than it looks, but Aaron Rodgers vs. Drew Stanton is just no contest.
N.Y. Giants at Minnesota (Sunday 1pm)
The Vikings look like a different team under interim head coach Leslie Frazier. They actually play hard! If the Vikings can stop the run, they have a chance.
Atlanta at Carolina (Sunday 1pm)
Bye week #2 for the Falcons
St. Louis at New Orleans (Sunday 4pm)
If there’s a spot for the Rams to step up and show they deserve to be seriously talked about in the NFC Playoff Race, this is it.
Seattle at San Francisco (Sunday 4pm)
The QB carousel continues in San Francisco as Alex Smith gets his job back.
Denver at Arizona (Sunday 4:15pm)
The Cardinals are the worst team in pro football right now. Enough said.
New England at Chicago (Sunday 4:15pm)
It’s a perfect trap week. New England’s coming off a Monday night romp over its divisional rival, the Jets and has to hit the road against an NFC opponent.
Miami at N.Y. Jets (Sunday 4:15pm)
The NFL would like to apologize to the Miami Dolphins for having to feel the brunt of the Jets brutal 45-3 loss to the Patriots Monday night.
Kansas City at San Diego (Sunday 4:15pm)
The Chargers could not look any worse than in last Sunday’s home loss to the Raiders where they couldn’t stop anyone, let alone Darren McFadden & Michael Bush. Should be interesting to see how they handle Jamaal Charles & Thomas Jones this week.
UPDATE (6:48pm): Chiefs QB Matt Cassel had an appendectomy Wednesday. So much for the upset for the Chiefs.
Philadelphia at Dallas (Sunday 8:20pm)
These two teams have to face off twice in the season’s final four weeks. That’s not a good thing if you’re either team.
Baltimore at Houston (Monday 8:30pm)
10 days off and a home game for the Texans, who are clinging to their playoff lives. Joe Flacco and the Ravens need a rebound after a tough last second loss to Pittsburgh Sunday night.
Last week: 10-6
