MATCHUP SCORE ANALYSIS
Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014
 
Cincinnati
Bengals
26
This is actually a big game for both teams. The Bengals lead the division, but the Browns are 5-3. Cleveland has beaten up on Oakland and Tampa Bay. This is a big step up for the Browns in competition. And it will show. The Bengals win a prime-time game behind their defense.
Result: Cincinnati Bengals 3, Cleveland Browns 24
Cleveland
Browns
13

Baltimore
Ravens
30
The Ravens are back home after losing consecutive road games, while the Titans are coming off a bye. This will be Zach Mettenberger's first road start. This is a tough place to make it. The Ravens defense regroups after last week's debacle.
Result: Baltimore Ravens 21, Tennessee Titans 7
Tennessee
Titans
17
 
 
Buffalo
Bills
23
This is a game featuring two 5-3 teams led by the defense, especially the pass rush. The Bills are coming off a bye, so they are rested. And they are at home. That's the biggest difference here. Kyle Orton makes a play late to win it.
Result: Buffalo Bills 13, Kansas City Chiefs 17
Kansas City
Chiefs
21
 
 
Miami
Dolphins
21
This is a big game that also features two top defenses. The Lions are coming off a bye, and expect to have Calvin Johnson back on offense. But this Miami defense is playing at a high level and Ryan Tannehill has come alive in the past month. Dolphins take it in an upset.
Result: Miami Dolphins 16, Detroit Lions 20
Detroit
Lions
20
 
 
Dallas
Cowboys
27
The issue here is whether Tony Romo plays for the Cowboys after missing last week with a back injury. Even without him, I think the Cowboys are good enough here to pound DeMarco Murray and leave London with a victory.
Result: Dallas Cowboys 31, Jacksonville Jaguars 17
Jacksonville
Jaguars
14
 
 
New Orleans
Saints
28
The 49ers are reeling, and in need of a victory in the worst way. The Saints are coming off an impressive road victory at Carolina, and will have 10 days off before this one. The Saints are also really dynamic on offense at home. The 49ers will keep it close, but the Saints will pull it out late.
Result: New Orleans Saints 24, San Francisco 49ers 27
San Francisco
49ers
27
 
 
Pittsburgh
Steelers
30
The Jets are a disaster, no matter who plays quarterback. The Steelers are riding high on offense. Ben Roethlisberger should have a field day with the Jets secondary. There is no way Mike Vick can keep up.
Result: Pittsburgh Steelers 13, NY Jets 20
New York
Jets
20
 
 
Atlanta
Falcons
31
The Falcons are coming off the bye at 2-6, but still alive in the division. A loss here would end it. Tampa Bay is struggling on defense, and they are ranked 31st in pass defense. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones light them up.
Result: Atlanta Falcons 27, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17
Tampa Bay
Buccaneers
27
 
 
Denver
Broncos
33
The Broncos are trying to regroup after taking the beating in New England last week. The Raiders are the perfect team for that. Denver will get it back cranked up again, and Peyton Manning won't be saying he stunk after this one.
Result: Denver Broncos 41, Oakland Raiders 17
Oakland
Raiders
17
 
 
Arizona
Cardinals
28
The Rams are playing consecutive road games in the division after beating the 49ers last week. The Cardinals have the league's best record and their attacking, blitzing defense will get after Austin Davis. Carson Palmer gets two more TD passes to win it.
Result: Arizona Cardinals 31, St. Louis Rams 14
St. Louis
Rams
14
 
 
Seattle
Seahawks
23
This is a tough turnaround for a Giants team that didn't play well against the Colts Monday night. Now they face the defending champs in one of the toughest places to play. The Giants will keep it close, but Seattle is too good at home.
Result: Seattle Seahawks 38, NY Giants 17
New York
Giants
21
 
 
Green Bay
Packers
37
These two teams are coming off a bye, and the Bears might be playing for their season here. This won't be easy. The Packers are always tough at home, and this is a night game against Aaron Rodgers and that high-flying attack. Green Bay blew out Chicago earlier this season, and there's no reason to think this will be different.
Result: Green Bay Packers 55, Chicago Bears 14
Chicago
Bears
23

Philadelphia
Eagles
24
The Eagles will be without Nick Foles, who is out with a broken clavicle. That means Mark Sanchez is in as the starter. I think he will be fine in this system. The Panthers are 25th in total defense, so he will get his shots. Cam Newton will do some good things to keep up, but will come up short.
Result: Philadelphia Eagles 45, Carolina Panthers 21
Carolina
Panthers
21
