MATCHUP SCORE ANALYSIS
Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016
 
Carolina
Panthers
27
This is a survival game for these two, especially Carolina. Both are coming off losses, but the Saints are playing better. Even so, I think Cam Newton and company find a way here to pull this out.
Result: Carolina Panthers 23, New Orleans Saints 20
New Orleans
Saints
21

Cincinnati
Bengals
26
The Bills are coming off a bye, but they lost three straight before that. The Bengals are playing on a short week after losing to the Giants Monday night. They looked better on defense that night, and this is desperation time for both teams. I will go with the home team here.
Result: Cincinnati Bengals 12, Buffalo Bills 16
Buffalo
Bills
20
 
 
Pittsburgh
Steelers
30
The Browns havenít won yet, and they wonít win here. The Steelers are in a must-win situation here if they are to have a chance to win the division. I think they take out their recent frustrations out here. Ben Roethlisberger lights up the Browns.
Result: Pittsburgh Steelers 24, Cleveland Browns 9
Cleveland
Browns
17
 
 
Dallas
Cowboys
23
This is a game featuring two first-place teams, with the Cowboys having the best record in football. The matchup between the Cowboys offensive line and the Ravens front seven will be a good one. The Ravens will keep this close, but Dallas finds a way late.
Result: Dallas Cowboys 27, Baltimore Ravens 17
Baltimore
Ravens
20
 
 
Detroit
Lions
27
The Lions are coming off a bye and they are in first place in the division. They get a Jaguars team that is struggling -- especially on offense. Look for the Lions to stay in first place with another victory here behind Matthew Stafford.
Result: Detroit Lions 26, Jacksonville Jaguars 19
Jacksonville
Jaguars
14
 
 
Indianapolis
Colts
27
The Titans are playing a physical brand of football that beat up the Packers last week. The Colts are coming off a bye, but beat the Titans 34-26 a month ago. The Titans are playing better now, but the Colts seemed to find something before the bye. They keep it going here.
Result: Indianapolis Colts 24, Tennessee Titans 17
Tennessee
Titans
21
 
 
Kansas City
Chiefs
23
The Chiefs have won five straight games and are one of the hottest teams in the league. Tampa Bay is coming off a nice win at home against Chicago, but this is a big step up in terms of challenge. The Kansas City pass rush will get all over Jameis Winston here. Chiefs keep rolling.
Result: Kansas City Chiefs 17, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19
Tampa Bay
Buccaneers
13
 
 
Arizona
Cardinals
20
The Vikings have lost four consecutive games after opening 5-0. Their offensive line is a mess, and might not be fixable. The defense isnít playing as well either. The Cardinals didnít look great beating San Francisco last week, but they will find a way here. Cardinals win it with their defense playing big.
Result: Arizona Cardinals 24, Minnesota Vikings 30
Minnesota
Vikings
17
 
 
New York
Giants
33
The Giants have ripped off four straight victories, and the Bears arenít very good and have a ton of players out. This is also a second straight road game. They donít have the manpower to keep up. Giants big.
Result: NY Giants 22, Chicago Bears 16
Chicago
Bears
20
 
 
Miami
Dolphins
24
The Rams have played great defense the past three weeks, but the offense is limited. Miami is playing good offense and running the football well. Thatís the challenge here. This is a second straight road game for the Dolphins, but they stayed on the West Coast. They stay hot and beat the Rams.
Result: Miami Dolphins 14, Los Angeles Rams 10
Los Angeles
Rams
17
 
 
New England
Patriots
34
The Patriots face a long trip here off a physical game with Seattle. Normally that matters. It wonít in this one. The 49ers are playing better, but they arenít in this class. Tom Brady comes home and lights up the team he used to root for as a kid.
Result: New England Patriots 30, San Francisco 49ers 17
San Francisco
49ers
17
 
 
Seattle
Seahawks
21
This is a long road trip for the Eagles against a team that seems to be getting it going. Carson Wentz against that Seattle defense in that environment will be a challenge. Seahawks take it, but itís closer than expected because of the Philly defensive front.
Result: Seattle Seahawks 26, Philadelphia Eagles 15
Philadelphia
Eagles
20
 
 
Green Bay
Packers
33
The Packers are playing consecutive road games, and they were awful last week at Tennessee. At 4-5, this is a must-win game. But the Redskins looked good in beating another NFC North team last week in Minnesota. This time, the Packers get back on track. Upset coming.
Result: Green Bay Packers 24, Washington Redskins 42
Washington
Redskins
30
 
Monday, Nov. 21, 2016
 
Oakland
Raiders
28
This game is in Mexico City, which makes it a road game for both teams. Even so, the Raiders are coming off a bye, while the Texans played on the road last week. Oakland is the better team and that shows up in this one as the Oakland defense continues to improve.
Result: Oakland Raiders 27, Houston Texans 20
Houston
Texans
24
