- RJ's Pick: Seattle by 11
Dallas (3-5) at Philadelphia (3-5) - 4:25 p.m. (Line: Cowboys by 2)
The Cowboys have lost three close games this year to good teams - by two points in Baltimore, by five points to the Giants, and by six points in Atlanta. They are ranked sixth in total yards of offense per game and fifth in total yards allowed per game. The Eagles have lost four consecutive games. They have scored the fewest points in the NFC. The winner of this one will still have a somewhat realistic chance of making the playoffs. The loser will be pretty much toast. Expect a lot of turnovers.

St. Louis (3-5) at San Francisco (6-2) - 4:25 p.m. (Line: San Francisco by 10.5)
The Rams have lost their last three. They have not scored more than 20 points in a game since Week Two. The 49ers have the top rushing offense in the league, averaging 169 yards per game on the ground and 5.6 yards per carry. They are allowing fewer than 13 points per game.
- RJ's Pick: San Francisco by 17
Houston (7-1) at Chicago (7-1) - 8:20 p.m. (Line: Chicago by 1)
An excellent, must-see matchup. The Texans have scored an average of almost 30 points per game while allowing about 17 points per game. Their only loss this year was to the Packers. The Bears are scoring 29.5 points per game (a lot of those points coming from their defense) while allowing just 15 points per game. Their only loss of the season was to the Packers. On a neutral field I would have to pick the Texans, but in Chicago, in November, at night? I gotta go with the Bears.
