New England (-7) @ St. Louis

Stephen: Now that the Patriots have a stranglehold on the AFC East, they can start to coast. (Rams)

Indianapolis (+3.5) @ Tennessee
Jason: Ladies and gentleman, the middle class of the AFC. (Colts)

Stephen: These teams both seem like they should finish with 3 wins. We’ll need a tie on Sunday for that to remain a possibility. (Colts)

Jacksonville (+15.5) @ Green Bay

Washington (+4.5) @ Pittsburgh

Oakland (+1) @ Kansas City
Jason: Rivalry games where both teams are brutal are the best. /tries to convince self (Raiders)

Stephen: With a combined record of 3-9, both these teams are very much in the hunt for the AFC West championship. (Chiefs)

New York Giants (-2) @ Dallas
Jason: Dallas can sweep the Giants, thus insuring their run to the title with this one. (Cowboys)

Stephen: Kevin Ogletree owns the Giants. (Giants)

New Orleans (+6.5) @ Denver
Jason: Peyton Manning and Drew Brees in the most meaningful prime time Sunday night meeting of their careers, no doubt. (Broncos)
