Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (-8.5)
The Denver (10-2) defense has won a lot of games this year, and that will continue against Derek Carr and Oakland (5-7). The loss ends the Raiders playoff hopes and increases the Broncos’ hopes of a bye.
Pick: Denver 21, Oakland 13
Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)
Green Bay (7-5) finally showed some fire on offense in the second half of the comeback victory over the Detroit, and they shouldn’t require a Hail Mary to get past a Tony Romo-less Dallas (4-8).
Pick: Green Bay 24, Dallas 14
New England Patriots (-3) at Houston Texans
New England (10-2) has been struggling with so many injuries, but there is no way Tom Brady loses three straight, right? Houston (6-6) is playing well, but not well enough to win this one.
Pick: New England 26, Houston 17
New York Giants at Miami Dolphins (EVEN)
Miami (5-7) is committed to running the football with Lamar Miller, and they should find some success against New York (5-7). Despite that, the Giants need this one, and they bounce back.
Pick: New York 27, Miami 20
Last week: 13-3
