The Bears have already beaten the Dolphins this week but here is the preview of the other 15 games going on all day Sunday and Monday Night.
Bengals, losers of 6 straight games take on a Bills team that has a league worst record at 1-8. Ryan Fitzpatrick is returning to Cincinnati for the first time since the 2008 season with the Bengals and Fitzpatrick while be the key for the Bills to get a win the Queen City. If Cincinnati limits their penalties then they should beat the less talented Bills.
Cowboys take on the Lions. Both teams are at 2-7 but Dallas is riding high after I big win at the Meadowlands on Sunday. Look for Jon Kitna and the Dallas offense to overpower the Lions. Dallas should move to 3-7.
The Redskins will try and regroup and get to .500 again after an awful outing on Monday Night Football against the Eagles. Vince Young and Chris Johnson are standing in their way of reaching that .500 marker. Chris Johnson should rush for over 120 and if Vince Young doesn’t turn over the ball and finds Randy Moss more often, then the Titans should win on Sunday.
The Chiefs take on a struggling Cardinals team. Kansas City looks to keep their playoff hopes alive. Jamal Charles and Matt Cassel will lead the offense to a big win at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
Farve vs the Packers. Green Bay took game one but the Vikings need to win this one to keep their playoff hopes alive. Jared Allen and the Minnesota D-line will need to put a lot of pressure on Aaron Rodgers so he can’t find the open receiver. Adrian Peterson must lead the Vikings on the ground and get them to 4-6 while the Packers fall to 6-4 and 2nd in the NFC North.
Jets will try to avoid overtime this week as they take on the Texans. Houston was looking towards a bright season but losing 4 of 5 isn’t helping the Texans as they try and reach their first playoff appearance. The Texans defense will need to help out Matt Schaub , Arian Foster, and the rest of the Houston offense in order to beat Mark Sanchez and the Jets.
The Raiders find themselves above .500 with only 7 games left but it will be a struggle to get past the Steelers in Pittsburgh. The Raiders will need to get pressure on Roethlisberger and will need Jason Campbell to step up big. I still see the Steelers defense being too much for the Raiders as they fall back to 5-5.
The Ravens should get an easy win over the Panthers. Carolina will be starting their 4th string quarterback and the physical Ravens defense will eat him up. Expect Tony Pike to see some snaps at the end of the game but the Ravens will be too far ahead for him to make any impact.
The Browns will try to bounce back from that overtime loss to the Jets as they travel to Jacksonville. Jacksonville was as lucky as can be after they got a win over Houston because of a Hail Mary as time expired. Don’t expect that to be the same this week. Expect Peyton Hillis to dominate the ground the Browns defense to keep David Garrard in check.
Matt Ryan and the Falcons Travel to St. Louis to Take on Sam Bradford and the Rams. The Falcons have been on a roll winning three in a row and winning 7 of 8. Expect Roddy White to have another great game and expect Michael Turner to pound out yards on the ground. The Falcons should take this one by 14.
The surprise 5-4 Seahawks take on the defending Super Bowl champs in New Orleans. Drew Brees has struggled this season but expect him to come back strong the rest of the season and I think he will have a big game on Sunday and lead the Saints to a win.
Tampa Bay is stunning everyone this season while the 49ers are playing way below what everyone expected them to do. The Bucs are one game behind the Falcons in the NFC South and are looking for a Wild card spot. On the other hand the 49ers are still looking to win the NFC West and they can’t afford any more losses. Troy Smith has them on a roll and I think they keep rolling plus Tampa Bay Wide Receiver Mike Williams maybe out for Sunday’s game. Look for San Fran to win a close one.
Payton Manning and the Colts vs. Tom Brady and the Patriots. The two most dominate teams of the 2000’s face again in Foxboro. Payton Manning has limited options but he’s the one man that can create something out of nothing but I think because of all the injuries that the Colts have Tom Brady and the Patriots should get the win in chilly Foxboro this week.
Mike Vick and the Eagles look to carry on that momentum from Monday night as they face a New York Giants team that lost to the Cowboys last week. Mike Vick is looking like the best QB in the NFL and I don’t think the Giants will be able to slow down him down. Expect the Eagles to get the win at home and move to first in the NFC East.
