Minnesota Vikings at Oakland Raiders (NO LINE)
If Teddy Bridgewater plays, Minnesota (6-2) has a legitimate shot to win this game. However, Shaun Hill isn’t good enough to outscore Oakland (4-4), which is a decent time. The Raiders are going to be a tough out down the stretch.
Pick: Oakland 28, Minnesota 13
New England Patriots (-8) at New York Giants
New England (8-0) is the best team in the NFL. The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl unless Tom Brady or Rob Gronkowski get hurt. New York (5-3) is a mediocre team and has no chance of keeping up point-for-point with Brady’s Bunch.
Pick: New England 34, New York 23
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
Arizona (6-2) might be the best team in the NFC along with Carolina. A win over Seattle (4-4) would all but clinch the NFC West, especially with this game being at CenturyLink Field. Still, the Seahawks are alive and kicking, making this a great game.
Pick: Seattle 20, Arizona 19
Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals (-12)
Cincinnati (8-0) is really, really good. Houston (3-5) is starting Brian Hoyer and is coached by Bill O’Brien. Good night.
Pick: Cincinnati 31, Houston 16
Last Week: 7-6
