Tennessee at Jacksonville (Thurs., Dec. 18)JAC -3JACA short week for these two spells trouble, but feel free to defer to the home team.
Philadelphia at Washington (Sat., Dec. 20)PHI -8.5PHISee analysis below.
San Diego at San Francisco (Sat., Dec. 20)SF -2.5SDSan Francisco is in a free fall with an offense that cannot get it together.
Minnesota at MiamiMIA -6.5MIAMinnesota is underrated, but Miami has an elite defense that will handle a rookie quarterback well.
Baltimore at HoustonBAL -3.5BALBaltimore will get back to its ground ways to counteract a rush led by J.J. Watt.
Detroit at ChicagoDET -4.5DETDetroit's rush will force Jay Cutler into plenty of critical mistakes.
Cleveland at CarolinaCAR -3.5CARJohnny Manziel on the road is bad news, especially if his run defense continues to perform miserably.
Atlanta at New OrleansNO -6.5ATLNew Orleans cannot win at home, so look for Matt Ryan to outduel Drew Brees.
Green Bay at Tampa BayGB -10GBSee analysis below.
Kansas City at PittsburghPIT -3PITPittsburgh seems in stride at this point, and Kansas City will have no answer for Le'Veon Bell.
New England at NY JetsNE -10NEDivisional battles are tougher than most things, but not when it comes to playing the Patriots. Just ask Miami.
NY Giants at St. LouisSTL -5.5NYGSt. Louis will have no answer for rookie star Odell Beckham.
Buffalo at OaklandBUF -5.5OAKA trip to Oakland is no easy task, but Buffalo can win outright thanks to a great defense.
Indianapolis at DallasDAL -1INDAndrew Luck will make short work of the Cowboys defense.
Seattle at ArizonaSEA -7.5ARIAn extended rest for Arizona means a strong performance at home.
Denver at Cincinnati (Mon., Dec. 22)N/ACINCincinnati cannot stop elite passers or show up in major prime-time games.

      I Can't Believe The Chargers Won This Game.

      I Tuned In Early In The 3rd Quarter,They Were Down 28-7

      Watched Maybe 5 Minutes & Tuned Back Out.

      It Looked Like I Was Gonna Be 0 For 2.

      The Eagles? That's Another Story.

              Thank you. I wish the Colt's would not have used that crazy trick play & blow it. Guess they don't want in hurt players for the bowl. LOL.

                      Actually, that wasn't a trick play in as it wasn't called in the huddle.  Dallas didn't have anyone on the "gunner" on that side of the field, instead putting extra men on the line for the block. (and they might have done so if the Colts had gone ahead w/ the punt.  Dallas did the exact same thing the week before against the Eagles and they didn't have anyone to field the punt and it resulted in something like a 67 yd. punt) and I'm sure the Colts special teams coach took note and they had practiced that play during the week and had told the punter it was his discretion if he saw the same alignment by the 'Boys.

                      That might have very well been the turning point of the game, taking the heart out of the Indy team.  After that, it was nothing less than a beatdown.
