Minnesota at Detroit

This game is a huge matchup in the NFC North; the Lions are much better at home than they are on the road. The Vikings are a tough defensive team that can get it done on the road. I will go with the Vikings in a close game.

Pick: Vikings 24  Lions 23


Washington at Dallas

This is another big divisional game, and both teams are playing well at this time. I will go with Dallas because they are the home team, but the Redskins will give them a run for their money.

Pick: Dallas 27  Redskins 24


Pittsburgh at Indianapolis

Andrew Luck may not play because of a concussion. With that being the case I have to go with the Steelers.

Pick: Steelers 31  Colts 13


L.A. Rams at New Orleans Saints

Saints just have too much offense for the Rams.

Pick: Saints 30  Rams 10


Tennessee at Chicago

The Titans blew a golden opportunity last week in Indianapolis; they need this game.

Pick: Titans 23  Bears 14


Arizona at Atlanta

The Cardinals are struggling, and the Falcons are coming off a much-needed bye week.

Pick: Falcons 30  Cardinals 23


N.Y.Giants at Cleveland

The Giants struggle on the offensive line; the Browns struggle everywhere.

Pick: Giants 34  Browns 16


San Diego at Houston

The Texans were robbed in Mexico; they will get back on track in this game.

Pick: Texans 23  Chargers 17


Jacksonville at Buffalo

The Bills are struggling with injuries, and the Jaguars are just flat out struggling.

Pick: Bills 21  Jaguars 17


Cincinnati at Baltimore

Injuries have depleted the Bengals, plus the coaching has been atrocious. The Ravens are excellent on defense and are well coached. No-brainer.

Pick: Ravens 30  Bengals 7


San Fransisco at Miami

The Niners are a bad team; the Dolphins are a hot team.

Pick: Dolphins 34  49ers 10


Seattle at Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay is a very dangerous team; Seattle are an excellent team.

Pick: Seahawks 27  Bucs 24


New England at N.Y. Jets

Patriots are just too good.

Pick: Patriots 31  Jets 17


Carolina at Oakland

The Panthers seem to be still suffering from a Super Bowl hangover, and the Raiders are a Super Bowl contender.

Pick: Raiders 24  Panthers 17


Kansas City at Denver

A big divisional battle between two strong defensive teams.

Pick: Chiefs 20  Broncos 17


Green Bay at Philadelphia

Packers are slumping, to say the least, and the Eagles are inconsistent.

Pick: Eagles 35  Packers 27
