Can Jay Cutler and the red-hot Bears make it five straight losses
for the Chargers when the two teams face off on Sunday?
Last Week's Record: 11-5
Overall Record: 99-47
Jets vs. Broncos: 24-10 Jets
The Broncos might have a winning record with Tim Tebow taking snaps, but the Jets are by far the better team in this matchup. The Jets defense will figure out a way to shut down Tebow, and therefore the Broncos offense. The Jets need a win to stay in playoff contention, and they can get an easy one when they travel to Denver on Thursday night.
Jaguars vs. Browns: 17-13 Jaguars
Two of the NFL's most boring teams face off on Sunday as the Jaguars visit Cleveland to take on the Browns. Both teams are 3-6 and have weak offenses, but the Jagaurs' defense is definitely an advantage. Plus, the Browns have only won one game since Peyton Hillis' injury, a game in which they won by a score of 6-3.
Panthers vs. Lions: 30-24 Lions
Talks have died down between both teams, as they have had bad starts to the month. Cam Newton and the Panthers were shut down last week by the Titans, while Matt Stafford and the Lions were embarrassed by the Bears in a blowout. The Lions should be able to regain some confidence, and jump back into playoff talk with a win vs. Carolina.
Bucs vs. Packers: 35-6 Packers
Until the Packers either lose a game, or play in a game decided by one possession, thy will need no further discussion on why they will win. Packers by a lot.
Bills vs. Dolphins: 27-17 Dolphins
Both teams were the talk of town a month ago, all for the wrong reasons. The Bills started off the season red hot, and are now 1-3 in their last four games (win against Washington). The Dolphins on the other hand, didn't get their first win until two weeks ago, and haven't lost since. If Miami try (key word tries) to win this game, they will.
Raiders vs. Vikings: 28-21 Raiders
Carson Palmer has adjusted to the Raiders' playbook, and has had back to back impressive games. Even without Darren McFadden, the Raiders should be able to beat the Vikings, who were crushed on Monday night by the Packers.
Cowboys vs. Redskins: 32-13 Cowboys
The Cowboys are back in the playoff hunt after winning three of their last four games. The Redskins on the other hand, haven't won since Week Four. I like the Cowboys big.
Bengals vs. Ravens: 27-20 Ravens
The Ravens have played inconsistent football this season, losing to some very bad teams, but beating some very good teams. The Ravens also haven't lost back to back games all season long. Following that trend, the Ravens should be able to pull off a victory at home against the Bengals.
Seahawks vs. Rams: 20-10 Rams
Don't be fooled people, the Seahawks are not a good football team, at all, despite beating Baltimore last week. The Seahawks have one of the most unproductive offenses in the entire league. The Rams haven't been much better this year, but have also had many players get hurt this season. With that being said, the Rams should be able to beat the Seahawks.
Cardinals vs. Niners: 27-10 Niners
The 49'ers have proved to the NFL that they aren't just leading the NFC West, but they are actually one of the best teams in the entire league. The Niners have an intimidating defense, and an offense that has been unexpectedly productive this season.
Titans vs. Falcons: 30-20 Falcons
The Titans are coming off of a big win against the Panthers, while the Falcons are coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Saints in overtime. If the Falcons can make the right play calls, they should win this game because they are clearly the more talented team.
Chargers vs. Bears: 24-14 Bears
The Bears have snuck up on everyone, and are suddenly one of the best teams in the NFL. The Bears have protected Jake Cutler well this season, and have also had a great year defensively. The Chargers on the other hand are coming off of their fourth straight loss. The Bears will make it five straight losses for the Chargers, with a big win on Sunday.
Eagles vs. Giants: 28-24 Giants
Last season when the Eagles traveled to New Jersey to take on the Giants, they ended the Giants playoffs hopes with a famous comeback win. Hopefully for the Giants, there will be a different result this time, as the Giants are looking for a win with a challenging schedule up ahead. Michael Vick has a few broken ribs, so the Giants defense should be able to contain him this year.
Chiefs vs. Patriots: 35-13 Patriots
The Patriots are coming off of a big win on the road vs. the Jets. Riding on some first place momentum, the Patriots should be able to crush the Cassel-less Chiefs on Monday night. Tom Brady was perfect on Sunday night against the Jets, but even a sub-par Brady will deliver a win on Monday night.
