MATCHUP SCORE ANALYSIS
Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015
 
Jacksonville
Jaguars
28
This is an important game for the Jaguars, who are one game out of first place in the AFC South. The loser is done. The Jacksonville passing game was off against the Ravens, but I think they get it going here. Jaguars win a shootout with Blake Bortles outdueling Marcus Mariota.
Result: Jacksonville Jaguars 19, Tennessee Titans 13
Tennessee
Titans
23

Atlanta
Falcons
27
Both teams are coming off a bye, but the Colts are doing it without Andrew Luck. That means that Matt Hasselbeck is in as the starter. It will be interesting to see how he plays compared to his first two starts. The Falcons haven't been great on offense lately, but that changes here.
Result: Atlanta Falcons 21, Indianapolis Colts 24
Indianapolis
Colts
17
 
 
Baltimore
Ravens
20
The Rams are turning to Case Keenum as the starter, replacing Nick Foles. They had to do something. The Ravens are 2-7 and the season is over, but this is a spot where they can get a victory. And with a good day from Joe Flacco they will.
Result: Baltimore Ravens 16, St. Louis Rams 13
13
 
 
Carolina
Panthers
27
The Redskins looked good blowing out the Saints last week. But this is a huge step up in terms of competition. The Panthers are rolling. They get all over Kirk Cousins as the Panthers remain undefeated.
Result: Carolina Panthers 44, Washington Redskins 16
Washington
Redskins
17
 
 
Chicago
Bears
21
This is a chance for Bears coach John Fox and coordinator Adam Gase to get back at their old team after both were let go by the Broncos at the end of last season. Denver has issues on offense and Peyton Manning won't play this week. That means it's Brock Osweiler's time. I think this is a chance for the Bears to pull off a big upset.
Result: Chicago Bears 15, Denver Broncos 17
Denver
Broncos
20
 
 
Detroit
Lions
23
The Lions looked like a different team against Green Bay. Can that carry over? The Raiders didn't look good against the Vikings, and this is a tough road game. Something says the Lions take it with some more good play by the defense.
Result: Detroit Lions 18, Oakland Raiders 13
Oakland
Raiders
21
 
 
New York
Jets
17
This could be a battle of backup quarterbacks in an important game. That's not good. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a thumb issue for the Jets with Brian Hoyer having concussion issues for the Texans. Geno Smith against T.J. Yates could be the matchup. I still like the Jets here because of their defense.
Result: NY Jets 17, Houston Texans 24
Houston
Texans
13
 
 
Miami
Dolphins
21
The Cowboys are playing a second straight game in Florida after losing to Tampa Bay last week. They got little going on offense, but Tony Romo is expected back here. Even so, I think Miami will find a way to slow down a rusty Romo and pull this one out.
Result: Miami Dolphins 14, Dallas Cowboys 24
Dallas
Cowboys
10
 
 
Philadelphia
Eagles
33
The Eagles suffered a bad loss last week to the Dolphins and now must play without Sam Bradford. That means Mark Sanchez is in as the starter. The Bucs have improved on defense, and they are still alive. But it won't matter here, even with Sanchez playing.
Result: Philadelphia Eagles 17, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 45
Tampa Bay
Buccaneers
21
 
 
San Diego
Chargers
28
The Chiefs are playing consecutive road games after beating up on the Broncos, while the Chargers are coming of a bye. The Kansas City defense was really good last week. This time, though, Philip Rivers will have success down the field against them. San Diego takes it.
Result: San Diego Chargers 3, Kansas City Chiefs 33
Kansas City
Chiefs
27
 
 
Green Bay
Packers
26
This is a huge game for both teams. If the Vikings really want to stake a claim as the best team in the division, they have to win this game. The Packers are having problems on offense. The Vikings are good on defense. So why do I think Aaron Rodgers and the Packers get it going?
Result: Green Bay Packers 30, Minnesota Vikings 13
Minnesota
Vikings
23
 
 
Seattle
Seahawks
28
The Seahawks are in desperate need of a victory, and this might be one of those games where they take it out on a rival. Blaine Gabbert will face a fierce defense here. The Seahawks will also get the offense going. Seattle takes it.
Result: Seattle Seahawks 29, San Francisco 49ers 13
San Francisco
49ers
7
 
 
Arizona
Cardinals
33
This is a tough turnaround for the Bengals after a bad loss against the Texans Monday night. They just didn't look good on offense. They will have to score here because the Cardinals will get their points. And they do. Cards take it
Result: Arizona Cardinals 34, Cincinnati Bengals 31
Cincinnati
Bengals
24
 
Monday, Nov. 23, 2015
 
New England
Patriots
30
This is a proving game for the Bills. The Patriots blew them out earlier this season, throwing all over the vaunted Rex Ryan defense. This time, Julian Edelman is out, so it might be tougher for the Pats to do that. No, it won't. Pats take it.
Result: New England Patriots 20, Buffalo Bills 13
Buffalo
Bills
21
