Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
Seattle's secondary, once known for ferocious hits and turnovers, isn't the same unit we're accustomed to seeing. What's especially disturbing is they have struggled against the top passers. A closer look at the tapes reveals what's wrong with the Seahawks.
Amukamara (pectoral) is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Washington.
With Amukamara set to play for the first time since Week 5, the Giants will have both halves of their impressive cornerback duo. The Big Blue defense has had some ugly showings this season, but the group they'll put out on the field for Sunday's game isn't lacking in talent.
Donnell (neck) said it will be a while before he is able to play again, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
Although the Giants haven't made anything official, Donnell doesn't seem likely to play again this season. Both he and head coach Tom Coughlin have hinted strongly in that direction, after a recent MRI revealed a "troubling result" in Donnell's neck. The Giants are left with Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham at tight end.
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Giants defensive end Damontre Moore had his right arm in a sling as he watched Texas A&M's Pro Day with other former Aggies, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. More information on Moore's injury was not immediately available.
Unga (neck) is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Washington.
Unga used the bye week to regain his health, but it isn't entirely clear that he'll have a three-down role, as Jasper Brinkley proved to be a more than capable replacement. It's a situation best avoided for IDP purposes until there's some clarity.
Bradford (concussion/shoulder) is listed as inactive Thursday at Detroit, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Although Bradford took part in a pregame warmup to test out his shoulder, he won't start and, in fact, not even suit up, missing his second consecutive contest. The Eagles will instead turn to Mark Sanchez under center.
Ertz (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest at Detroit.
With only three days to recover from a concussion suffered Sunday versus the Buccaneers, Ertz was able to progress to a limited showing in Wednesday's practice, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. However, he was unable to complete all phases of the league's protocol for head injuries. His next opportunity to suit up arrives on Dec. 6 in New England.
Mathews (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Detroit.
Mathews has made little progress in his quest through the concussion protocol, leaving the Eagles to trust in DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles, and, to a lesser extent, Kenjon Barner out of the backfield. His next chance to take the field arrives on Dec. 6 at New England.
