Dolphins (8-6) at Bills (5-9)

Vikings (4-9-1) at Bengals (9-5)

Peyton Manning carries a 16–3 career record vs. Houston — a team with 12 straight losses. Broncos by 13

Titans (5-9) at Jaguars (4-10)
Talk about a slump-buster. J-Ville was 0–8 before beating Tennessee, 29–27, in Week 10. The Jags are 4–2 since their winless start. Titans by 2

Browns (4-10) at Jets (6-8)
Cleveland has hit the 10-loss mark yet again. New York still has a shot with Geno Smith at QB. Jets by 2

Saints (10-4) at Panthers (10-4)
The game of the week pits the NFC South’s top two teams against each other in a winner-take-all heavyweight fight. New Orleans defeated Carolina, 31–13, in Week 14. Panthers by 1

Colts (9-5) at Chiefs (11-3)
A pair of former No. 1 overall picks go head-to-head when Andrew Luck plays Alex Smith. AFC playoff pecking order is also up for grabs in what could be a potential postseason preview. Chiefs by 5

Cowboys (7-7) at Redskins (3-11)
Who would have guessed RG3 would have more detractors than Tony Romo this season? Cowboys by 6

Buccaneers (4-10) at Rams (6-8)

Giants (5-9) at Lions (7-7)
Matthew Stafford is coming off a rough week, but nothing like Eli Manning’s five-INT debacle. Lions by 10

Cardinals (9-5) at Seahawks (12-2)
This NFC West birdfight is a rematch of Seattle’s 34–20 win at Arizona in Week 7. Seahawks by 11

The Silver-and-Black shocked the Bolts, 27–17, in Week 5, as Philip Rivers threw three INTs. Chargers by 8

Steelers (6-8) at Packers (7-6-1)
Odds are, Matt Flynn will continue to start in place of Aaron Rodgers when Blitz-burgh visits Title Town in a rematch of Super Bowl XLV. Steelers by 1

Patriots (10-4) at Ravens (8-6)
New England lost to Baltimore twice last year — 31–30 in Week 3 and 28–13 in an AFC title game defeat Tom Brady blamed himself for. Ravens by 1

Bears (8-6) at Eagles (8-6)
Strange coincidence, the current division leaders in the NFC East and North are both plus-15 net points this season. Eagles by 3

Falcons (4-10) at 49ers (10-4)
ESPN executives at Monday Night Football were loving this matchup preseason. But not now. 49ers by 13
