Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (-8.5)

Denver (10-2) has absolutely no offense, so it is highly vulnerable every week. Still, Oakland will struggle to score enough on the road. The Broncos can move one step closer to a fifth straight AFC West title.

Pick: Denver 17, Oakland 14

Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)

Green Bay (8-4) is playing like garbage, but Dallas (4-8) actually is garbage. There is no way that Aaron Rodgers loses at home to Matt Cassel. It would be the biggest upset of the season in terms of quarterback play.

Pick: Green Bay 23, Dallas 13

New England Patriots (-3) at Houston Texans

New England (10-2) is not losing three consecutive games, especially against a team led by Brian Hoyer. Houston (6-6) desperately needs the game, but the clock is about to strike midnight.

Pick: New England 27, Houston 10

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins (EVEN)

ESPN should just stop broadcasting football games. Just put on infinite re-runs of the 1990s NFL Primetime show and be done with it. Rating would go up. Seriously.

Pick: Miami 20, New York 19, Dignity 0

Last Week: 13-3
Season: 117-74
