Seahawks vs. 49ers: Divisional games are often screwy, but I think Jim Harbaugh and company will bounce back with a vengeance this week. Also, if the pass rush is back to normal, Russell Wilson will be running for his life. -Tex

Titans vs. Bills: The win over the Steelers was not real. I don't believe it. The Bills aren't great, but they're an 8-8 type of team, and those types of teams should beat the Titans at home. -Kevin

Cowboys vs. Panthers: Not going to lie, I just about needed to flip a coin for this game. If I could vote for a tie or the total failure of each team I would....I really would. That said, the Boys are coming off an embarrassing loss and Jerry Jones should keep the pressure on everyone to prevent this from becoming a big losing streak. -Devin

Ravens vs. Texans: Losing Ray Lewis hurts the Ravens, but losing Lardarius Webb hurts more. These might still be the two best teams in the AFC, and I wouldn't be surprised if this game breaks a tie for home-field advantage. I have to go with the angry home team that features the Defensive Player of the Year (so far) up front. -Tex

Browns vs. Colts: Last week was the Colts' letdown game after a huge win. This week, the Browns will experience the exact same thing. -Kevin

Cardinals vs. Vikings: The Vikings got burned repeatedly by a dynamic, athletic QB last week. That is not the kind of QB that plays in Arizona. Their offense is ugly, but Minnesota's looks to be average at worst right now. -Tex

Redskins vs. Giants: The Giants don't stay hot until it counts. They are riding high this week so I expect them to lose focus and allow another miracle finish by RGIII. -Devin

Packers vs. Rams: The Packers finally regained their form on offense last week, which is good since St. Louis' defense is solid. Green Bay will need a solid running game this week, but I expect that they find a decent balance while forcing some turnovers out of Sam Bradford. -Tex

Saints vs. Buccaneers: I was impressed by the Buccaneers' 38-point showing last week, even if it came against Brady Quinn. The Chiefs stink, but they gave a game to Baltimore the week before. Josh Freeman is playing up to his potential and I'm less impressed with New Orleans' win over San Diego this week than I was last week, for obvious reasons. -Kevin

Jaguars vs. Raiders: When two bad teams play each other, I'll take the one who's at home rather than the one traveling all the way across the country. -Tex

Jets vs. Patriots: The Patriots' defense does one thing well right now, and that is stop the run. The Jets' offense is based around the run. On the other side, New England's offense is much more balanced and consistent, and the Jets won't have an answer for it. -Devin

Steelers vs. Bengals: I don't think that either of these teams is as crappy as they looked last week. I think they're probably about as good as each other. Tiebreaker? Bengals lost a division game, so they'll be more pissed off, and they're at home. -Kevin

Lions vs. Bears: The Bears play awful in primetime. Jay Cutler plays awful in primetime. Mix that with a Detroit secondary that should be competent with Louis Delmas back there and I think the Lions pull one out. -Devin
