CAN'T MISS

LIONS (6-5) AT VIKINGS (5-6)

11 a.m.

Don't look now, but the Vikings have won three of their past four games. And they're 10-1 in their last 11 meetings with the Lions, who have lost three in a row.

Prediction: Vikings, 34-20

JAGUARS (8-3) AT COLTS (9-2)

11 a.m.

The Jaguars can do the Steelers a favor by ending Indy's nine-game home winning streak. But the Colts have had 10 days to prepare for the Jaguars.

Prediction: Colts, 24-16

BILLS (5-6) AT REDSKINS (5-6)

11 a.m.

An emotionally challenging game for the Redskins, after the death of Sean Taylor. The Bills are going back to Trent Edwards after back-to-back losses.

Prediction: Redskins, 24-6

BROWNS (7-4) AT CARDINALS (5-6)

2:05 p.m.

Were it not for a second-half collapse at Pittsburgh, the Browns would be riding a six-game winning streak. They are already 2-0 against NFC West teams.

Prediction: Browns, 30-23

WORTH WATCHING

TEXANS (5-6) AT TITANS (5-6)

11 a.m.

All of a sudden, Tennessee has forgotten how to stop the run — and how to win. But the Texans can't run the ball. And they haven't won their past five meetings with the Titans.

Prediction: Titans, 23-16

CHARGERS (6-5) AT CHIEFS (4-7)

11 a.m.

The Chiefs have lost five of the past seven after winning in San Diego in September. Since then, the Chargers have won five of their past seven.

Prediction: Chargers, 17-13

SEAHAWKS (7-4) AT EAGLES (5-6)

11 a.m.

The Eagles opened a lot of eyes, including their own, by almost beating New England. East-coast travel is not a good thing for the Seahawks.

Prediction: Eagles, 30-17

GIANTS (7-4) AT BEARS (5-6)

2:15 p.m.

The Bears would be wise to change their uniform color to purple. Eli Manning has thrown eight interceptions, four for TD returns, in past two against the Vikings.

Prediction: Bears, 23-21

BUCCANEERS (7-4) AT SAINTS (5-6)

2:15 p.m.

Don't even bother trying to figure the Saints. They are to consistency what Britney Spears is to parenthood.

Prediction: Buccaneers, 27-24

BENGALS (4-7) AT STEELERS (8-3)

6:15 p.m.

The Bengals have won three of the past four meetings at Heinz Field, including the past two. The Steelers are fortunate not to be riding a three-game losing streak.

Prediction: Bengals, 27-24.

FAST FORWARD

49ERS (3-8) AT PANTHERS (4-7)

11 a.m.

The 49ers got a couple gifts in Arizona, courtesy of Neil Rackers and Kurt Warner. They will need some more from that other gift-giver, Vinny Testaverde.

Prediction: Panthers, 20-17

JETS (2-9) AT DOLPHINS (0-11)

11 a.m.

OK, enough of this winless stuff. The Dolphins have lost six games by three points this season, including the past three. They can't be THAT bad.

Prediction: Dolphins, 17-16

FALCONS (3-8) AT RAMS (2-9)

11 a.m.

The only more frequent occurrence than Marc Bulger getting injured is the Rams losing. The good news for St. Louis: The Falcons are coming to town.

Prediction: Rams, 24-20

BRONCOS (5-6) AT RAIDERS (3-8)

2:05 p.m.

Maybe the Broncos are fatigued from chasing Devin Hester. But they will get new life against the Raiders, whom they have beaten five times in a row.

Prediction: Broncos, 24-21
