Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins (-4)

Baltimore (4-7) and Miami (4-7) are both offensive to our eyes. The reason we are picking the Dolphins? Ryan Tannehill is superior to Matt Schaub.

Pick: Miami 21, Baltimore 20

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings (EVEN)

This is one of the best games of the week. Minnesota (8-3) is not getting enough respect as a legitimate contender, maybe because Teddy Bridgewater looks average. Meanwhile, Seattle (6-5) needs this game desperately. I’m banking on experience.

Pick: Seattle 24, Minnesota 16

New York Jets (-1) at New York Giants

The Jets (6-5) are better than the Giants (5-6) but each of these teams have huge flaws. The difference is in the trenches, where Gang Green has a major advantage on both sides.

Pick: Jets 20, Giants 10

Arizona Cardinals (-5.5) at St. Louis Rams

Arizona (9-2) plays winning football and looks like a true contender. We are still not sure what kind of football St. Louis (4-7) plays.

Pick: Arizona 28, St. Louis 17

Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1)

If Atlanta (6-5) loses this game, you would have to think the Falcons are done. Well, stick a fork in those boys, because Tampa Bay (5-6) is going to win.

Pick: Tampa Bay 31, Atlanta 19

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-2.5)

You would be better off jumping head-first off your roof and into a sheet of concrete than watching this game.

Pick: Tennessee 27, Jacksonville 24
