Packers at Lions (Thursday 12:30pm)
This one would be a whole lot different with Aaron Rodgers playing for Green Bay.
Raiders at Cowboys (Thursday 4:30pm)
Typical trap game for Dallas after an emotional road win at the Giants last Sunday that puts them back in a first place tie with the Eagles in the NFC East.
Steelers at Ravens (Thursday 8:30pm)
Hard to believe that the winner here is in pretty good shape in the AFC Wild Card race. Hard-nose, hard-fought, physical football is a perfect way to end Turkey Day!
Patriots at Texans (Sunday 1pm)
Houston makes it a perfect 10 in a row. Losses that is.
Dolphins at Jets (Sunday 1pm)
If anyone tells you they absolutely know what’s going to happen in this game, they’re lying. Two teams riding the roller coaster all season long.
Bucs at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)
Don’t be surprised if the Bucs have a chance to win this one late in the fourth quarter.
Jaguars at Browns (Sunday 1pm)
The Jaguars are so bad they’re trying to mess up getting the #1 pick by winning lately.
Titans at Colts (Sunday 1pm)
Mt. Irsay, otherwise known as the Colts owner, erupted on Twitter this week. If Indy’s offense doesn’t erupt, the AFC South top spot will be up for grabs.
Bears at Vikings (Sunday 1pm)
The Bears can’t stop the run. The Vikings have Adrian Peterson. That could be a bad combo for Chicago.
Cardinals at Eagles (Sunday 1pm)
How is this not the Sunday night game of the week? Best game of the week candidate here.
Falcons at Bills (Sunday 4pm)
Unfortunately, this is the NFL’s gift to Toronto this year.
Rams at 49ers (Sunday 4pm)
The 49ers are getting healthier and getting better. Both things are bad news for the rest of the NFC.
Broncos at Chiefs (Sunday 4:25pm)
The winner has the inside track on the top seed in the AFC. The loser could be the 5th seed. That’s how much the Broncos needed to hang on to their 24-0 lead in Foxboro last Sunday night.
Bengals at Chargers (Sunday 4:25pm)
Phillip Rivers is getting hot and the Chargers have four home games in the next five. Keep your eyes on the Bolts.
Giants at Redskins (Sunday 8:30pm)
Why is America subjected to this in the primetime game of the week. Bad job not flexing this one out NFL!
Saints at Seahawks (Monday 8:40pm)
If the Saints can’t beat Seattle here, their road to the Super Bowl gets dramatically tougher.
Last week: 6-7-1
