Saints at Panthers (Thursday 8:25pm)

Amazing that the team that wins here takes over the lead in the NFC South - at .500!
Winner: Saints

Jaguars at Bengals (Sunday 1pm)

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.
Winner: Cowboys (if Romo plays) / Cardinals (if Romo doesn't)

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.
Winner: Chargers

Redskins at Vikings (Sunday 1pm)

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

Rams at 49ers (Sunday 4pm)

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.
Winner: Patriots

Raiders at Seahawks (Sunday 4:25pm)

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

Ravens at Steelers (Sunday 8:30pm)

Can't see anyway Big Ben and the boys put up 51 again this week, but they'll score enough.
Winner: Steelers

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.
Winner: Colts

Last week: 11-4
Season: 80-39-1

WWE Hell in a Cell PPV Predictions

Two Hell in the Cell matches, but I'm guessing no blood or gore - too bad, it needs it!

Hell in a Cell #1 Contender’s Match: John Cena vs. Randy Orton
Rumors that Randy Orton's back may limit or eliminate this match entirely.  Either way, it's Cena vs. Lesnar at The Rumble and Orton becomes a babyface (maybe costs Seth Rollins his match?)
Winner: John Cena

Hell in a Cell Match: Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
Match of the night if they let them go. Orton interference, if he's healthy?
Winner: Dean Ambrose
WWE United States Title Match: Sheamus vs. The Miz
Does anyone really care about this feud at all?
Winner: New Champ - The Miz (it's his turn this week)

Best of Three Falls Intercontinental Title Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. Cesaro
Bippity boppity boo. Match will be good. Cesaro gets a title too!
Winner: New I-C Champ (much to my chagrin) Cesaro

WWE Divas Title Match: AJ Lee vs. Paige
I'd rather see them in a Hell in a Cell than Orton/Cena.
Winner: AJ Lee (but with enough to keep the feud going)

WWE Tag Team Title Match: Goldust & Stardust vs. The Usos
Haven't we seen this one 1,000 times before? I'm hoping The Wyatts/Ascention interfere to spur a Survivor Series type match.
Winner: Goldust & Stardust
The Loser Becomes The Winner’s Assistant For 30 Days: Nikki Bella vs. Brie Bella
It's so much more interesting if Nikki wins. Otherwise, I really don't care.
Winner: Nikki Bella

Big Show vs. Rusev
Let's be honest, they're not letting Rusev lose here.
Winner: Rusev

San Diego plays well in Denver, but they're a little too beat up to do it this week.

What has happened to that once vaunted Falcons offense? Maybe they'll find it in England!

Jets at Patriots (Thursday 8:25pm)

Heavy rain expected, so expect a wet, soggy, slug-it-out affair in Foxboro. It'll be close for sure.
Winner: Patriots

Falcons at Ravens (Sunday 1pm)

Joe Flacco dreams of repeating his first 16 minutes from Tampa last Sunday. It won't be 5 TD's, but it'll be good enough.
Winner: Ravens

Dolphins at Bears (Sunday 1pm)

At least the Dolphins won't have to be worried about getting duped again by Aaron Rodgers' fake spike.

Even without Megatron, the Lions should have enough against the underachieving road Saints.

Winner: Browns

Seahawks at Rams (Sunday 1pm)

Seattle will not be happy going into this one.  Sorry St.Louis!
Winner: Seahawks

Titans at Redskins (Sunday 1pm)

A couple of weeks ago, Kirk Cousins was the golden child.  Now, there are Colt McCoy whispers.  At least, he'll get a reprieve with the Titans in town.
Winner: Redskins

Chiefs at Chargers (Sunday 4pm)

San Diego survived their trap game last week in Oakland.  Eyes should be wide open this week.

Will there be a Sunday night hangover for Bengals from the drubbing at the hands of the Pats or was it a wake-up call?

Everyone wants to pick the Cowboys against Seattle on a short week and a 3,000 trip back home.  Not us!

Could be a good time for LeSean McCoy to get his mo-jo back after a rather improving Giants team.
Winner: Eagles

49ers at Rams (Monday 8:30pm)

It looks like the 49ers have figured out what they forgot: hand the ball to Frank Gore! A lot!

Vikings at Packers (Thursday 8:25pm)
Looks like no Teddy Bridgewater for the Vikes.  Packers offense looks to be headed in the right direction, which is bad news for Minnesota.
Winner: Packers

Bears at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)

This could be a cure-all game for the Bears after a turnover-filled loss to the Packers last Sunday.
Winner: Bears

Baltimore's past meet's Baltimore's present.  The Colts just aren't that good.
Winner: Ravens

Steelers at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

Thank you NFL, says Steelers Nation.
