MATCHUP SCORE ANALYSIS
Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015
 
Arizona
Cardinals
30
The Vikings are coming off a horrible loss at home to Seattle, and they are banged up. Arizona is a high-flying offense that is hard to defend when your defense is healthy. The Cardinals and Carson Palmer continue to roll.
Result: Arizona Cardinals 23, Minnesota Vikings 20
Minnesota
Vikings

Chicago
Bears
24
The Redskins are playing on a short week after that bad loss to the Cowboys. They have to get it cranked back up here. Chicago didn't play well last week, but they will bounce back in this one. Jay Cutler has a good day.
Result: Chicago Bears 21, Washington Redskins 24
Washington
Redskins

Cincinnati
Bengals
31
The Bengals are now the top seed in the AFC. They are playing good football. Pittsburgh is rolling on offense with Ben Roethlisberger and the passing game. This will be a tough challenge for the Bengals. But they will be up to it. They clinch the division.
Result: Cincinnati Bengals 20, Pittsburgh Steelers 33
Pittsburgh
Steelers
24
 
 
San Francisco
49ers
21
This will be Johnny Manziel's game as the starter. Thatís the smart thing. The 49ers won on the road at Chicago last week, but consecutive road games can be tough. They overcome it. Blaine Gabbert wins again.
Result: San Francisco 49ers 10, Cleveland Browns 24
Cleveland
Browns
17
 
 
Jacksonville
Jaguars
28
The Colts should have Matt Hasselbeck here, which helps. But this is consecutive road games for them, which is tough. The Jaguars can score on anybody, and they will score here. Blake Bortles continues to play well.
Result: Jacksonville Jaguars 51, Indianapolis Colts 16
Indianapolis
Colts
27
 
 
New York
Jets
27
The Jets pulled off a nice victory against the Giants last week and now get a Tennessee team that is basically playing for nothing. Marcus Mariota did some good things last week against the Jaguars, but this is a tougher task. The Jets will shut him down some.
Result: NY Jets 30, Tennessee Titans 8
Tennessee
Titans
17
 
 
Philadelphia
Eagles
23
The Eagles pulled off a stunner last week at New England to save their season. At 5-7, they can still win the division. This wonít be an easy game, but the Bills are an up-and-down team. They were up last week. Down here. Eagles take it.
Result: Philadelphia Eagles 23, Buffalo Bills 20
Buffalo
Bills
16
 
 
Detroit
Lions
24
The Rams have plummeted in a big way with a lack of production at quarterback. The Lions have played better because Matt Stafford is playing better. That carries over here. The Lions win on the road.
Result: Detroit Lions 14, St. Louis Rams 21
St. Louis
Rams
21
 
 
Tampa Bay
Buccaneers
28
The Bucs are 6-6 in the middle of the playoff hunt. The Saints are done. They put a lot into beating the Panthers last week. This turnaround will be tough. The Bucs will get over. 500.

Saints

Kansas City
Chiefs
23
The Chiefs have won six consecutive games, while the Chargers are done. They look little like the team that opened the season with the glut of injuries. Kansas City will continue to play well and roll on to the playoffs. Alex Smith is playing well.
Result: Kansas City Chiefs 10, San Diego Chargers 3
San Diego
Chargers
13
 
 
Carolina
Panthers
37
The Panthers pulled out a tough one against the Saints to stay undefeated. Cam Newton is playing great football. Matt Ryan is not. That will be the difference in this one. Panthers continue to roll.
Result: Carolina Panthers 38, Atlanta Falcons 0
Atlanta
Falcons
24
 
 
Seattle
Seahawks
27
This looked like a huge game when the schedule was made. It isn't. The Ravens are having a horrible season. The Seahawks have surged in recent weeks. They are playing consecutive road games, but that won't matter. Russell Wilson plays well.
Result: Seattle Seahawks 35, Baltimore Ravens 6
Baltimore
Ravens
17
 
 
Denver
Broncos
30
Brock Osweiler is 3-0 as the starter in Denver. He's done some good things, and the running game improvement has helped. But this Denver team is about defense. The Raiders are playing for next season now, but they have the talent to make things interesting here. Denver finds a way.
Result: Denver Broncos 12, Oakland Raiders 15
Oakland
Raiders
18
 
 
Green Bay
Packers

This is a rematch of the NFC playoff game last season. You would never know it. Both teams are alive, but they haven't looked like the same teams. The Cowboys are dinged without Tony Romo. The Packers still have Aaron Rodgers. Packers take it.
Result: Green Bay Packers 28, Dallas Cowboys 7
Dallas
Cowboys
23
 
 
New England
Patriots
23
The Patriots have lost two consecutive games. They are now the third seed. That's hard to believe. The Texans are 6-6, but tied for the division lead. The Patriots have a bunch of injuries, but they will overcome them here. Tom Brady gets back on track.
Result: New England Patriots 27, Houston Texans 6
Houston
Texans
21

New York
Giants

Dolphins
