---RJ's Pick: Redskins by 3
Cincinnati (8-6) at Pittsburgh (7-7) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: PITTSBURGH by 3)
This is a huge game for both teams. The Bengals are in the playoffs with a win, while the Steelers would make the playoffs with a win here and another one next week against Cleveland (both home games).
---RJ's Pick: Bengals by 1
St. Louis (6-7-1) at Tampa Bay (6-8) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: TAMPA BAY by 3)
For the second year in a row, the Buccaneers have collapsed late in the season. They started 4-2 last year before losing their last ten games, and they were 6-4 earlier this year before dropping their last four games. New head coach, same old story.
---RJ's Pick: Rams by 5
Oakland (4-10) at Carolina (5-9) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: CAROLINA by 7.5)
The Raiders are 0-3 against the NFL South this season. The Panthers have won their last two games.
---RJ's Pick: Panthers by 4
New England (10-4) at Jacksonville (2-12) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: New England by 14)
The Patriots look like they will fall a little short of the NFL record for points scored in a season (589), a record they set back in 2007 during their 16-0 regular season. Then again, it's entirely possible they'll put up 40 or 50 points on the Jaguars this week, who are ranked next to last in the league in total yards allowed per game. If they do that, then they'd still have a slim chance of breaking the record next week against Miami.
---RJ's Pick: Patriots by 24
Minnesota (8-6) at Houston (12-2) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: HOUSTON by 7)
The Texans can clinch the top seed in the AFC with a win this week. The Vikings desperately need a victory to keep their Wild Card hopes alive in the NFC.
