CAN'T MISS

GIANTS (6-3) ATLIONS (6-3)

11 a.m.

The Giants had their six-game win streak ended at home by the Cowboys. The Lions, though, are unbeaten at Ford Field, the warehouse they call home (4-0).

Prediction: Lions, 34-31

CHIEFS (4-5) AT COLTS (7-2)

11 a.m.

After a 7-0 start, the Colts have lost two in a row. But, even with half their offense, they will rebound against the Chiefs, who scored just 11 points against the Broncos.

Prediction: Colts, 34-10

CHARGERS (5-4) AT JAGUARS (6-3)

11 a.m.

The Chargers have won four of their past five, even though they were lucky to beat the Colts. The Jaguars are back home after three consecutive road games.

Prediction: Jaguars, 24-20

REDSKINS (5-4) AT COWBOYS (8-1)

2:15 p.m.

The Cowboys haven't started 9-1 since 1983. That was back when the rivalry with the Deadskins—their name for the Redskins—really meant something.

Prediction: Cowboys, 34-17

WORTH WATCHING

BROWNS (5-4) AT RAVENS (4-5)

11 a.m.

The Ravens have scored 28 points in their past four games. The Browns put up that many against the Steelers, thanks to Joshua Cribbs.

Prediction: Browns, 20-13

SAINTS (4-5) AT TEXANS (4-5)

11 a.m.

After winning four in a row, the Saints should be embarrassed losing at home to the Rams. Wait till the Texans, coming off a bye, make it two in a row.

Prediction: Texans, 24-17.

RAIDERS (2-7) AT VIKINGS (3-6)

11 a.m.

The Vikings' No. 1 rush offense will be without RB Adrian Peterson (knee). The Raiders offense has been without punch, scoring just two TDs in the past four games

Prediction: Vikings, 20-12

BUCS (5-4) AT FALCONS (3-6)

11 a.m.

Don't look now, but the Falcons have won two in a row. They've also held the Bucs without a touchdown in the past two meetings. But, c'mon, it's the Falcons.

Prediction: Buccaneers, 16-13

PANTHERS (4-5) AT PACKERS (8-1)

11 a.m.

Not too many games where Brett Favre ISN'T the oldest quarterback on the field. The Packers are 12-1 in their past 13, dating to last season.

Prediction: Packers, 33-7

DOLPHINS (0-9) AT EAGLES (4-5)

11 a.m.

The winless Dolphins keep getting closer to that first victory, losing their past two by a field goal. Unfortunately for the Fish, their next two games are in Pennsylvania.

Prediction: Eagles, 24-6

BEARS (4-5) AT SEAHAWKS (5-4)

2:15 p.m.

Goodness, is it Rex Grossman to the rescue for the Bears? The Seahawks are 4-1 at home and coming off a shutout against the 49ers.

Prediction: Seahawks, 17-10

FAST FORWARD

CARDINALS (4-5) AT BENGALS (3-6)

11 a.m.

One thing Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt learned when he was with the Steelers was how to beat the Bengals in Cincinnati. But the Cardinals are 1-4 on the road.

Prediction: Cardinals, 24-23

STEELERS (7-2) AT JETS (1-8)

2:05 p.m.

The Jets better hope Leon Washington returns two kicks for touchdowns. Either that, or there's a snowstorm and the Steelers borrow Mike Mularkey's 2003 game plan.

Prediction: Steelers, 27-13

RAMS (1-8) AT 49ERS (2-7)

2:15 p.m.

The 49ers have won four of the past five meetings with the Rams, including 17-16 on Sept. 16. But they have scored just one TD in six of their past seven games.

Prediction: Rams, 23-10

PATRIOTS (9-0) AT BILLS (5-4)

6:15 p.m.

Someone at the networks smelled an upset when they switched this game to prime time. That should be enough incentive for another 30-something victory for the Patriots.

Prediction: Patriots, 34-7
