Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders
The Chiefs have won five straight games and look to continue their winning streak. They pulled even with the Broncos after a good win over the Seahawks on Sunday. Oakland hasn’t won a game this season and will look to play spoiler. Oakland is the first team mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Expect a blowout by the Chiefs in Oakland.
Cleveland Browns @ Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta somehow leads their division despite a 4-6 record. The Falcons have won two straight games and are looking to extend that streak to three. They have a tough test in the Cleveland Browns who are in the thick of the AFC playoff race. The Browns have been inconsistent at times. Expect this to be a close game with the Falcons pulling out a win and keeping their division lead.
Tennessee Titans @ Philadelphia Eagles
After being embarrassed by the Packers, the Eagles will have to bounce back. The Eagles still lead the NFC East despite their loss, but have a horrendous defense. The Titans are not a good football team this year. Expect the Eagles to win big at home.
Detroit Lions @ New England Patriots
New England is the hottest team in the league. They have won six games in a row, including three over current division leaders. The Lions lost Sunday but sit at second in the NFC. Expect this to be a high scoring game with the Patriots emerging as winners.
Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings
The Packers are on fire winning six of their last seven games. They trail the Lions by virtue of a tiebreaker in the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have scored a combined 108 points in their last two games. Minnesota is in the middle of the pack in the NFC and is virtually out of the playoff race. Expect Green Bay to put away the Vikings early in Minnesota.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts
The Colts dropped to 6-4 with a loss to the Patriots. Indianapolis hasn’t proved they can beat the best teams in the league. Luckily, they take on the lowly Jaguars. Jacksonville is at 1-9 and a spot out of last place. Expect the Colts to win big at home, using their offense that has the most passing yards per game.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans
The Bengals looked like the team everyone is use to on Sunday. Quarterback Andy Dalton played well and led his team back to the top of the AFC North. Houston is only two games out of a playoff spot and has a good opportunity to make the playoffs if they can string together a couple wins. Expect a good game with the Bengals coming away with the win.
New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills
The Bills are one of the most surprising teams in the league this year. They lost Thursday to the Dolphins but can regroup with a win over the Jets. The Jets are coming off a big win over the Steelers and a bye week. They should be well rested to make this a good game. Expect Buffalo to win and make the playoff race interesting in the AFC.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Chicago Bears
Jay Cutler and the Bears bounced back with a win after losing big to the Packers. Tampa Bay is last in the NFC, but is coming off their second win of the season. Chicago needs to win to stay alive in the NFC. Expect the Bucs to put up a fight, with the Bears winning.
Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks
While the Cardinals are 9-1 and leading the entire NFL, their magic could run out. They won’t be able to keep winning with Drew Stanton at quarterback. The Seahawks are coming off a loss in a close game against the Chiefs. The defending champs are having a tough season but still have time to turn things around. Expect this game to be close.
St. Louis Rams @ San Diego Chargers
The Rams keep surprising everybody by beating good teams in the league. The team is looking to build momentum going into next year. They are coming off a huge upset over the Broncos. San Diego is on the outside looking in. They are out of a playoff spot due to a tiebreaker and need to win to keep pace with the other playoff contenders. Expect a very good game out west in San Diego.
Miami Dolphins @ Denver Broncos
Denver was embarrassed in St. Louis on Sunday. They didn’t play well, sending them to their third loss of the year. However, the Broncos will be able to battle back with Peyton Manning. The Broncos lead the AFC west by a tiebreaker over Kansas City. The Dolphins hold the last playoff spot in the AFC and could strengthen their chances of making the playoffs with a win over the Broncos. Expect a close game with the Broncos prevailing in the end.
