San Francisco (5-5) at St. Louis (4-6) - 1:00 p.m.
Hmmm. The hottest team in the NFC (the 49ers) against the coldest team in the NFL (the Rams). But this game is in St. Louis, and all streaks must come to an end sometime.
RJ's Pick - St. Louis by 2
Oakland (2-8) at San Diego (8-2) - 4:05 p.m.
I mean, really.
RJ's Pick - San Diego by 21
Chicago (9-1) at New England (7-3) - 4:15 p.m.
This one has "Game of the Week" written all over it. Chicago has all but wrapped up their division already, and leads every other team in the NFC by at least three games. They are clearly an elite team, but New England is no pushover either. However, the Patriots are a disappointing 2-3 at home this season, while the Bears are 5-0 away from Soldier Field.
RJ's Pick - Chicago by 4
New York Giants (6-4) at Tennessee (3-7) - 4:15 p.m.
The Giants have lost two in a row, and need a win badly in order to stay atop the highly-competitive NFC East. Meanwhile, Tennessee crushed an NFC East team last week, beating Philly 31-13. In fact, two of their three wins have come against NFC East opponents. Also, they are at home this week. I wouldn't bet the barn either way.
RJ's Pick - Giants by 3
Philadelphia (5-5) at Indianapolis (9-1) - 8:15 p.m.
Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is done for the season. The same could probably be said for his team, especially when you look at their remaining schedule: Colts, Panthers, Redskins, Giants, Cowboys, and Falcons. Ouch!
RJ's Pick - Indianapolis by 15
Monday, Nov. 27
Green Bay Packers (4-6) at Seattle (6-4) - 8:30 p.m.
Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck is back. And so, I think, are the Seahawks.
RJ's Pick - Seattle by 11
