Thursday, November 12

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (-2, 48 1/2) 8:20 pm (Fox/NFLN) - The Titans feasted on Bear last week with a convincing, 24-17 win at home over Chicago while the Colts dropped a 24-10 home game to the Ravens, giving Tennessee a one-game advantage in the AFC South.

This is a huge game for both squads as first place in the division is won the line and they also meet again in just two weeks (Nov. 29) at Indianapolis. The Colts have one of the best defenses in the league. Through eight games, they are third in points allowed (20.0 per game) to the Ravens and Rams and have allowed fewer yards than any team (2,320).

While the Titans' defense showed some improvement last week, it was against the offensively-challenged Bears, but the offense comes hard every week behind the running of Derrick Henry, who is second to Minnesota's Dalvin Cook for the league's rushing lead. Tough call, home field and a coin flip may be the best measures here.

Coin Flip: Tennessee

Prediction: Titans 26 Colts 20

Sunday, November 15

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4 1/2, 50 1/2) at Carolina Panthers 1:00 pm (Fox) - The Bucs didn't look very convincing in a 38-3 home loss to the Saints last Sunday night, but they're supposedly a little better than the Panthers, a team that came within a whisker of upending Kansas City in a 33-31 road loss.

The Panthers have dropped four straight, but were within one possession of either tying or winning in each of those games. Teddy Bridgewater matures with every start and he may look more like a younger version of Tom Brady here than the current 43-year-old HOF QB on the other side. Christian McCaffrey returned last week and will be at full speed against the Bucs. Sunday starts off with an upset.

Coin Flip: Tampa Bay

Prediction: Panthers 28 Buccaneers 24

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (-3, 53) 1:00 pm (Fox) - The season is pretty much over in Houston. The Texans would have to win seven of their remaining games to get to 9-7, but, outside of division leaders, they're chasing 6-2 Baltimore and, at 5-3, the Dolphins, Browns, Colts, and Raiders.

Houston's 27-25 win at Jacksonville wasn't particularly impressive, though the Texans now become a spoiler for the remaining playoff-hopeful teams.

Cleveland is 3-1 at home, where they lost to the Raiders week 8, 16-6, and had a bye last week. The Browns' offense takes the week off in their losing efforts. In their three defeats, the Browns have scored just 19 points (6, 6, and 7). Not expecting a huge defensive effort from Houston, Cleveland should roll on to another victory and stay in the playoff hunt.

Coin Flip: Houston

Prediction: Browns 30 Texans 24

Washington Football Team at Detroit Lions (-3 1/2, 46 1/2) 1:00 pm (Fox) - Having gotten pounded the past two weeks (41-21 vs. Indy; 34-20 at Minnesota), the Lions figure to get a boost hosting the Washington team, but it's far from certain. First, the Lions are allowing 30 points per game, whereas Washington gives up only 23.5. Second, the Lions haven't won at home, but Washington hasn't won on the road.

Detroit has the edge in scoring (24.6 to 19.1), but the offense has been sputtering of late. The Lions usually swoon in he second half of the season. At 2-6, Washington would normally be looking forward to next season, but in the shambles that is the NFC East, they're in second place behind the 3-4-1 Eagles, so, they may have more of a post-season mindset than the Lions.

Coin Flip: Washington

Prediction: Washington Team 31 Lions 28

Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers (-13, 51 1/2) 1:00 pm (Fox) - Bouncing back from their losses to Tampa Bay and Minnesota, the Packers doused the 49ers by the Bay, 34-17, and should have few problems handling the Jaguars, who are 1-7 and haven't seen the winner's circle since week one.

The Jaguars will start Jake Luton again for the injured Gardner Minshew. A sixth-round draft pick (2020) out of Oregon State, Luton didn't do badly in Jacksonville's 27-25 loss to the Texans. He was 26-for-38 for 304 yards with one TD and one pick. The Jags lost on a failed two-point conversion with 1:30 left to play.

Luton's skills are evident and he should give the Jaguars a shot despite the second-worst defense in the league (30.9 ppg). Maybe not enough to win, but they have the skills to keep this one competitive.

Coin Flip: Jacksonville

Prediction: Packers 34 Jaguars 24

Philadelphia Eagles (-3 1/2, 44 1/2) at New York Giants 1:00 pm (Fox) - Even though the Giants are just 2-7, they continue to improve. They've won two of their last four, but, in their last five encounters, they've lost by slim margins of 1, 2, and 3 points, the one-point defeat coming at Philly, October 22 (22-21).

Obviously, the Giants belong on the field against the 3-5, first place Eagles and should get their second home win of the season. The Eagles come off a bye but haven't looked very good all season.

Coin Flip: New York Giants

Prediction: Giants 26 Eagles 17
