Las Vegas in Atlanta, 1pm on CBS
The Raiders have won three of their last four games, and the only defeat was a four-point loss against Kansas City. Jon Gruden makes this team look like a real post-season contender. Atlanta may not be in the hunt for the playoffs, but the Falcons can rack up points, so this should be a fun game.
Los Angeles Chargers in Buffalo, 1pm on CBS
Justin Herbert and Josh Allen have quietly become two of the most underrated quarterbacks of the past three years. Don’t get me wrong, I would still take Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray, but these two signal callers made their team relevant once again, even if the Chargers (3-7) underperform in terms of their point difference (-13)
New York Giants in Cincinnati, 1pm on FOX
Keep your eyes out if you are looking for quality football; Daniel Jones vs. Ryan Finley could be ugly. The Bengals will try to pick up the remains of their season after Joe Burrow suffered a nasty knee injury, but the Giants have a lot to do in this game despite their 3-7 record. The win puts them above NFC East, as they have a tiebreaker over Washington.
Tennessee in Indianapolis, 1pm on CBS
Both teams enter this game at 7-3, and the Titans will seek revenge after falling to Indy at home two weeks ago. In an extra round, the winner of this game is likely to end the season on a tiebreak at AFC South as the Colts have lost to Jaguar and Tennessee have a game in hand in division play.
Carolina in Minnesota, 1pm on FOX
In the two years with Viking before his devastating knee injury, Teddy Bridgewater completed 64.9 per cent of his passes, made 28 touchdowns vs 21 interceptions, averaged 7.2 yards per try, and amassed a pass rating of 87.0. Now that he is finally a full-time starter again, he is up to 72.1 per cent, 13 to 7, 7.7 and 98.7. I smell a quarterback who is motivated and playing better than ever.
Arizona in New England, 1pm on FOX
If the Patriots were to keep their playoff hopes alive, they would have to take care of the business as a rare home underdog. Cam Newton has looked better in recent weeks since returning from COVID-19 (one turnover over the past four weeks), but the hardest task is to slow down the fiery Kyler Murray.
New Orleans in Denver, 16.05 on FOX
Game Two of the Taysom Hill experience moves to Mile High City, where the Saints will be looking for an eighth straight win. It would also be great because New Orleans hasn’t won in Denver since 1994. Meanwhile, Denver will start training for wide-receiving team Kendall Hinton – who was a midfielder at Wake Forest – as four of their midfielders were out due to the COVID-19 protocol.
San Francisco in the Los Angeles Rams, 16.05 on FOX
The 49ers are two games from the playoffs and will have to take a key win over division rivals if they are to a chance to defend their NFC championship. San Francisco won the previous game with the Rams on Week 6, but the team’s trend has been going in the opposite direction ever since.
Kansas City in Tampa Bay, 4:25 pm on CBS
May Mahomes vs. Brady, Round 4, will be as good as the original. Now that these quarterbacks are playing in opposite conferences, it may take a while before they face off again. Both teams will have to catch up in the standings as the Chiefs want the AFC top seed and a single bye, while the Bucs need to snatch NFC South advantage over the Saints.
The Bears and Packers meet for the seventh time on “Sunday Night Football“Since 2006, and they can both use the win. The Bears have had four defeats in a row, while the Packers lost to the Colts last week.
