Three favorites

NY Jets at ST LOUIS (-3)
The Jets woes continue. Lack of production at quarterback has crippled the team all season. The Rams have played well when WR Danny Amendola is in the lineup. The loser of this game will be preparing for next year. Expect alot of production from Rams RB Steven Jackson.

San Diego at DENVER (-8)
Denver continues to improve while San Diego continues to struggle. The Chargers downslide began with the Broncos, and their defense has had trouble stopping anyone since. Denver QB Peyton Manning should have some of his best numbers of the season.

CLEVELAND (+7 1/2) at Dallas
Dallas has had trouble at home, but the Browns have been struggling to finish drives lately. Cleveland RB Trent Richardson should see alot of carries as the Browns try to keep the ball out of the hands of Cowboys QB Tony Romo. A young Cleveland squad will keep this game close.

In the middle

CINCINNATI (-3 1/2) at Kansas City
Last week, Kansas City played as good as they have all season and still lost; a hungry Bengals team snapped a four game losing streak, and look to return to the .500 mark. Kansas City continues to turn the ball over at critical times. Cincinnati wins with a big game from WR AJ Green.

Jacksonville at HOUSTON (-15 1/2)
Houston has been incredible at home. At minus 119, Jacksonville has the worst point difference in the league. The Texans have too much defense and too much offense for the Jaguars to stay close. Houston RB Arian Foster should rack up some big numbers against a weak Jacksonville defense.

TAMPA BAY (-1 1/2) at Carolina
Carolina has been playing better, but Tampa Bay has been playing much better, winning three straight. The Bucs are second in the conference in scoring, and the defense has been making timely plays. Expect this trend to continue.

GREEN BAY (-3) at Detroit
Geen Bay continues to improve, while Detroit has been inconsistent. The Lion offense has been better lately, but their defense has been giving up big plays far too often. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers should have plenty of big plays in this game.

Arizona at ATLANTA (-10)
The Falcons look to rebound after suffering their first loss last week. The Cardinals have not won since QB Kevin Kolb was hurt, losing five in a row. Until the offense improves, the losses will continue, and a strong start to the season will be wasted.

NEW ORLEANS (-6) at Oakland
New Orleans may be the one team that nobody wants to play right now. The offense has put up points all season, and the Saints defense is finally starting to make some plays. The Raiders have been great some weeks but lousy most of the time, and their defense has given up the third most points in the league.

CHICAGO (+6) at San Francisco
A matchup of two team that outstanding at running the ball while playing great defense. This game will most likely be decided by the defense and not the offense. This game looks to be an old fashioned smashmouth contest, and could play a large roll in determining playoff seedings at the end of the year.

Three that scare me

Philadelphia at WASHINGTON (-3)
The Eagles will rely on rookie QB Nick Foles to lead them the rest of the season. He has a strong, accurate arm and should make for some interesting play. Lack of protection will lead to too many rookie mistakes for Philadelphia to overcome. The return of Washington WR Pierre Garcon will help the Redskin offense tremendously.

INDIANAPOLIS (+9) at New England
Another game with playoff implications. The Colts QB Andrew Luck will see his first matchup against Patriots QB Tom Brady. Expect Luck to take advantage of a New England defense that has had trouble stopping the pass this year.

Baltimore at PITTSBURGH (+3 1/2)
Baltimore has struggled against the run. Pittsburgh is running the ball as good as anyone in the league, and their defense is playing better each week. Expect the Steelers to pound the balll on the ground and try to keep the ball out of the hands of backup QB Byron Leftwich.
