CAN'T MISS

REDSKINS (4-2) AT PATRIOTS (6-0)

2:15 p.m.

Here's a couple stats that will mean nothing: The Redskins have won six in a row versus New England and Joe Gibbs is 3-0 against the Patriots.

Prediction: Patriots, 34-10

JAGUARS (4-2) AT BUCCANEERS (4-3)

2:05 p.m.

The Jaguars haven't lost on the road (2-0), even though the game is only across the state. The Buccaneers haven't lost at home (3-0).

Prediction: Buccaneers, 20-17

LIONS (4-2) AT BEARS (3-4)

11 a.m.

The Lions scored a league-record 34 points in the fourth quarter when these teams met last month. All of a sudden, though, Brian Griese is playing like Bob Griese.

Prediction: Bears, 24-17

COLTS (6-0) AT PANTHERS (4-2)

11 a.m.

The Panthers are the worst 4-2 team in the league. Four victories are against teams with a combined six victories — the same amount as Indy.

Prediction: Colts, 34-21

WORTH WATCHING

STEELERS (4-2) AT BENGALS (2-4)

11 a.m.

The Bengals have a chance to jump back into the division race with a victory. Of course, they had a chance for a playoff spot when they lost to the Steelers last year, too.

Prediction: Steelers, 31-20

RAIDERS (2-4) AT TITANS (4-2)

11 a.m.

Rob Bironas is the Tom Brady of kickers—NFL-record eight field goals against Houston. The Titans are 9-3 since Week 14 last season.

Prediction: Titans, 26-13

TEXANS (3-4) AT CHARGERS (3-3)

2:15 p.m.

The Chargers added WR Chris Chambers from the Dolphins during the bye week, making their offense even better. Texans are 1-4 in last five.

Prediction: Chargers, 31-17

SAINTS (2-4) AT 49ERS (2-4)

2:15 p.m.

The 49ers are on a 4-game slide after a 2-0 start, and it all started with a loss to the Steelers at Heinz Field. Let's hold off on the "Saints are back" proclamations.

Prediction: 49ers, 20-17

FAST FORWARD

GIANTS (5-2) AT DOLPHINS (0-7)

11 a.m.

Mick Jagger, David Beckman, George Best and Eusebio have all played Wembley Stadium. Now it's Osi Umenyiora and the red-shot Giants.

Prediction: Giants, 34-7

BROWNS (3-3) AT RAMS (0-7)

11 a.m.

The Browns haven't won back-to-back games since Week 6 in 2003. Soon as they start thinking they can get close to the Steelers, they revert to being the Browns.

Prediction: Rams, 24-21

BILLS (2-4) AT JETS (1-6)

2:05 p.m.

The Bills have won the past two meetings, including 17-14 last month, and are coming off upset of the Ravens. The Jets are just plain ol' upset.

Prediction: Jets, 17-16

EAGLES (2-4) AT VIKINGS (2-4)

11 a.m.

The Eagles have won six of the past seven meetings, including playoffs. But the Vikings are better than their record would indicate.

Prediction: Vikings, 24-14
