As always, the winning team is in caps. 

Miami Dolphins at BUFFALO BILLS – I like how Miami is playing. But Buffalo looks really good right now. 

BALTIMORE RAVENS at Cincinnati Bengals – The Ravens will win. Right? 

Pittsburgh Steelers at CLEVELAND BROWNS – I haven’t checked to see whether all the Browns who missed last week’s game due to COVID are back. So this might not be my best pick. 

Minnesota Vikings at DETROIT LIONS – Tough to take either of these teams seriously. 

New York Jets at NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS – Hasn’t been the best year for us Pats fans. But you know what? It’s been a good two decades. I really can’t complain. 

Dallas Cowboys at NEW YORK GIANTS – Can the G-Men pull out a final win over a gritty Cowboys team? We’ll see. 

Atlanta Falcons at TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS – How big a lead will the Falcons blow this week? 

GREEN BAY PACKERS at Chicago Bears – Packers will win. Right? 

Jacksonville Jaguars at INDIANAPOLIS COLTS – Colts should roll. 

Los Angeles Chargers at KANSAS CITY CHIEFS – Will Chiefs repeat as Super Bowl champs? 

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS at Carolina Panthers – An upset wouldn’t surprise me. But I’ll go with the Saints. 

TENNESSEE TITANS at Houston Texans – Texans have disappointed me this season. It seems like they should be better than they are. 

Las Vegas Raiders at DENVER BRONCOS – The Raiders will complete their second half collapse. 

Arizona Cardinals at LOS ANGELES RAMS – My confidence in the Cardinals evaporated last week, when they lost at home to a limp 49ers team. 

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS at San Francisco 49ers – I meant what I said about the 49ers being limp. 

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM at Philadelphia Eagles – I could see either team completely blowing this, which pretty much sums up the state of the NFC East. 

Last week’s results: 

Me: 12-4, Overall: 160-79-1 

Ken Schott: 11-5, Overall: 159-80-1
