Washington at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX

Cam Newton only needed nine snaps to score two touchdowns in his return to the Panthers last week, and now he'll get to make his first start against his former head coach. Are there any hard feelings after Ron Rivera and Washington opted for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke over the 2015 MVP?

Indianapolis at Buffalo, 1 p.m. on CBS

These teams faced off in January when the Bills escaped the Wild Card Round with a 27-24 win. Can Indianapolis get revenge with a signature road win to get back into the playoff picture?

Baltimore at Chicago, 1 p.m. on CBS

The Ravens have alternated wins with shocking losses in recent weeks, which means they're set for a big road win, right? Well, at minimum this should be a very exciting quarterback matchup between Lamar Jackson and Justin Fields.

Detroit at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on FOX

With Baker Mayfield only having one healthy arm and the Lions having no good quarterbacks to speak of, this one could get ugly. The good news is that the Lions' 12-game losing streak is finally over — they're merely winless at 0-8-1.

Houston at Tennessee, 1 p.m. on CBS

The Titans are on an NFL-best six-game winning streak, and the Texans are on a league-worst eight-game losing streak. Simple enough right? After the myriad of double-digit upsets this season, you really can't take any game for granted.

Green Bay at Minnesota, 1 p.m. on FOX

Aaron Rodgers was good enough in his return from a positive COVID-19 test, but he'll need to be better than a 62.6 percent completion rate with no touchdowns and an interception to beat the suddenly feisty Vikings.

Miami at New York Jets, 1 p.m. on CBS

In a surprise, the Jets announced that Joe Flacco will start for them on Sunday, and he'll face off against Tua Tagovailoa, who has been practicing without limitations. The loser of this game will reside in the bottom of the AFC East.

New Orleans at Philadelphia, 1 p.m. on FOX

Jalen Hurts made his first career start against the Saints last December and went 17-for-30 for 167 yards and a touchdown with 106 more yards on the ground. He may need a similar performance to knock off the Saints once again.

San Francisco at Jacksonville, 1 p.m. on FOX

We may not get to see Trevor Lawrence face off against fellow top-three pick Trey Lance, but that's in part because the 49ers looked absolutely dominant last week with Jimmy Garoppolo. Good luck to Jacksonville stopping Deebo Samuel.

Cincinnati at Las Vegas, 4:05 p.m. on CBS

Both teams are on two-game losing streaks but remain firmly in the AFC playoff hunt at 5-4. Which team will come out on top and give a boost to their postseason aspirations? The Bengals haven't made the playoffs in six seasons, while the Raiders have done so just once since 2003.

Dallas at Kansas City, 4:25 p.m. on FOX

If nothing else, this should be an exciting offensive game, as Patrick Mahomes looked like his old MVP self last week. The Cowboys will be without Amari Cooper (COVID-19) but remain dangerous with a healthy Dak Prescott.

Arizona at Seattle, 4:25 p.m. on FOX

The Cardinals have typically given the Seahawks trouble at home, and that's before considering each team's quarterback injuries. Arizona is clinging to a one-game lead in the NFC West, while Seattle desperately needs a win to stay in the wild-card hunt.

Pittsburgh at Los Angeles Chargers, 8:20 p.m. on NBC (SNF)

These teams are separated by a half-game in the AFC Wild Card picture, and it looks like Ben Roethlisberger will be back under center after missing last week's tie with Detroit because of COVID-19 protocols. But the defense will be without top pass-rusher T.J. Watt (knee, hip) as well as defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID-19) and Joe Haden (foot).
