New York Jets (-2.5) at Dallas Cowboys – Saturday

The Jets (8-5) are playing excellent football, particularly on offense. Their defense will have no problem shutting down the Cowboys (4-9) offense led by Matt Cassel. New York will have too much in all phases of the game for the ailing Dallas team.

Pick: New York 28, Dallas 10

Kansas City Chiefs (-9) at Baltimore Ravens

It’s been an incredible journey for the Chiefs (8-5), who started the season with just one win from six games. Their defense will have a field day against a banged up Ravens (4-9) offense and rolls to an eighth win on the bounce.

Pick: Kansas City 27, Baltimore 6

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts (NO LINE)

This one depends entirely on Andrew Luck‘s availability for the Colts (6-7). At the time of writing, his status is unclear. Assuming he doesn’t return this week, look for T.J. Yates to pick up the win for the Texans (6-7).

Pick: Houston 13, Indianapolis 10

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings (-5.5)

Minnesota (8-5) has lost three of its past four and will look to get back in the NFC North hunt against Chicago (5-8). Adrian Peterson will lead the charge and said the Vikings to win number nine.

Pick: Minnesota 26, Chicago 17

Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots (-15.5)

The Patriots (11-2) haven’t been as dominant of late, but the Titans (3-10) have little chance of pulling off an upset. Tom Brady eases past Tennessee.

Pick: New England 30, Tennessee 17

Carolina Panthers at New York Giants (NO LINE)

If the Giants (6-7) play like they did against the Dolphins on Monday night, they have a chance to beat anybody. But there lies the problem with New York. They are inconsistent. A team far from inconsistent is the undefeated Panthers (13-0), who will pick up the tough road win.

Pick: Carolina 30, New York 27 

Buffalo Bills at Washington Redskins (EVEN)

This is an all-or-nothing game for Buffalo (6-7) who would be likely ruled out of playoff contention with a loss. Washington (6-7) loses after every win, and that streak continues.

Pick: Buffalo 24, Washington 14
