-0-

Chargers-Raiders…A home game for the Raiders “in San Diego”…Oakland (10-3) fighting for a chance to get back into first place with 3-weeks left in the season..Chargers roster in complete state of collapse now with Melvin Gordon gone with injury….Interesting matchup-Khalil Mack-Bruce Irvin pass rush vs poor Chargers offensive line

Patriots-Broncos…Who get whom in this game…Tom Brady-vs-Orange Crush blitz…Lots of speed receivers for New England vs weakened Denver secondary…What does Trevor Siemian do vs Bill Belicheck defense….Stat of the weekend…Brady-Belicheck just (2-7) in Denver in their careers.

Dallas-Tampa Bay…Jameis Winston has willed the Bucs to an (8-5) record…Cowboys are (11-2)…Dak Prescott numbers impressive (20-TD-4-Interceptions)

Lions-Giants..Could anyone have predicted both would be (9-4)…Matthew Stafford trying to play thru injured index finger on throwing hand…Eli Manning keeps making big pass plays.

Chiefs-Tennessee…Tough matchup for KC going to Nashville..both need victory to keep playoff positions….Can KC defense holdup vs the run..Might be field goal kicking contest.

Ravens-Eagles..Terrible tailspin by Philadelphia…QB-Carson Wentz struggling to make plays-now Darren Sproles hurt…Joe Flacco throwing a ton of passes and living off Baltimore defense success.

Steelers-Bengals..Disappointing season for Andy Dalton and Cincinnati…Steelers gettting big games from QB-RB-WR…just don’t know if Cincy has firepower to keep up.

Saints-Arizona..Drew Brees throwing too many interceptions…Cardinals season major disappointment and now release of WR-Michael Floyd.

Vikings-Colts..Andrew Luck ailing again…Sam Bradford carrying Vikes offense with no run game…Minnesota defense really tough.

Browns-Bills..Rex Ryan on thin ice…so is future of QB-Tyrod Taylor…Browns about to go (0-14).

Houston-Jacksonville…Texans need win…but Jaguars offense faltering badly…Coach Gus Bradley likely next head coach to go.

Green Bay-Chicago…Bitter cold weather in forecast….Matt Barkley playing okay as starter now…Aaron Rodgers..can he throw it in cold and wind?

Atlanta-49ers…Falcons banged up-need to put hot streak together like they did early in season…49ers likely to go (1-13)

Jets-Miami…No Ryan Tannehill could mean big problems for Dolphins…Jets have equally bad problems with their offense in a horrible season.

Seahawks-Rams…Thursday night football…Will be ugly…Russell Wilson-vs-Rams tough defense..but Jared Goff-vs-Legion of Boom defense…Well at least the Rams throwback jersey’s will look cool.

Carolina-Washington….Cam Newton looks terrible throwing the ball…Nothing wrong with Kirk Cousins…Washington run game real surprise this season.
