- RJ's Pick: Miami by 3
Buffalo (3-5) at New England (5-3) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: New England by 10.5)
The Bills have lost two in a row. Their defense is ranked next to last in points allowed per game, rushing yards allowed per game, and total yards allowed per game. The Patriots have won their last two. They lead the NFL in points scored per game and total yards of offense per game. They should score at least 40 points this week.
- RJ's Pick: New England by 20
Atlanta (8-0) at New Orleans (3-5) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Falcons by 2.5)
The Falcons are the NFL's last remaining unbeaten team, but their defense is still something of a question mark. The Saints have the league's worst defense in terms of yards allowed per game. This one should be a shootout.
- RJ's Pick: Atlanta by 8
San Diego (4-4) at Tampa Bay (4-4) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Tampa Bay by 3)
The Chargers won last week and can get back above .500 with a road win this week. The Buccaneers have won two in a row. Rookie RB Doug Martin was a beast last week, rushing for 251 yards and four TDs. This is not an easy matchup to pick.
- RJ's Pick: Tampa Bay by 1
Denver (5-3) at Carolina (2-6) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Broncos by 3.5)
The Broncos have won three straight. Peyton Manning had his worst passer rating in a game since Week Three last week, as it was "only" 105.8. The Panthers have the worst record in the NFC.
- RJ's Pick: Denver by 10
Oakland (3-5) at Baltimore (6-2) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Baltimore by 7)
The Raiders have a below average defense and a mediocre offense with an anemic running game. They are not a good team, but they are just good enough to be competitive. The Ravens are undefeated at home this season. They have a very consistent running back in Ray Rice. In four of his eight games this year, he has gained 98, 99, 101, and 102 yards on the ground. In two of the other four games, he simply wasn't given the ball much (10 carries in Week One and just nine carries in Week Seven).
- RJ's Pick: Baltimore by 3
New York Jets (3-5) at Seattle (5-4) - 4:05 p.m. (Line: Seattle by 6)
The Jets have lost their last two games and four out of their last five. The Seahawks are unbeaten at home. Maybe after the Jets lose this week we'll finally see Tim Tebow starting under center.
