Indianapolis Colts (-2 1/2, 50 1/2) at Las Vegas Raiders 4:05 pm (CBS) - Vegas, baby! Um, no. The Raiders were fortunate to escape New York with a 31-28 win over the Jets last week, and now have to face the Colts, who regained the lead in the AFC South with a 26-20 win at Houston last week and Tennessee's loss to Cleveland.

The Raiders have allowed a combined 105 points the past three games, that's 35 per game. All the Colts offense has to do is score 24 and the defense will handle the rest. Probably, they'll score more.

Coin Flip: Las Vegas

Prediction: Colts 34 Raiders 24

New York Jets at Seattle Seahawks (-13 1/2, 47) 4:05 pm (CBS) - The Seahawks just aren't scaring anybody lately, going 3-4 since their week six bye. Russell Wilson has cooled off, they still have a limited running game, and the competition has amped up. Their wins were over a wounded San Francisco mob, a divisional win over the Cardinals, and a 23-17 escape from Philly. Seattle lost to the Giants last week, setting up another visit by a New York squad, the Jets, who are still winless, but getting closer.

Can Seattle win this by two TDs? Maybe, but as lovable losers, the Jets a simply adorable.

Coin Flip: Seattle

Prediction: Seahawks 27 Jets 23

Atlanta Falcons (-2 1/2, 49 1/2) at Los Angeles Chargers 4:25 pm (Fox) - LA QB Justin Herbert may end up AFC offensive rookie of the year, but he didn't impress New England head coach, Bill Belichick, whose defense skunked the young thrower into 209 yards on 26-53 passing, picking him off twice in a 45-0 bomb.

Herbert should fare better against Atlanta, though the Falcons have also stepped up defensively, holding New Orleans to 21 points, but scoring only 16 themselves. At 4-8, the Falcons are a much better team than the 3-9 Chargers, and should handle their road trip well.

Coin Flip: Atlanta

Prediction: Falcons 27 Chargers 13

New Orleans Saints (-7, 45) at Philadelphia Eagles 4:25 pm (Fox) - Drew Brees is expected back for this contest, but even if he's not ready to rock, backup Taysom Hill has managed to orchestrate three straight wins in his stead.

The Eagles are all but finished, but may get some energy out of Jalen Hurts, who wasn't bad in the second half of the Eagles' 30-16 loss at Green Bay. At home with no fans, getting seven, this one appears tempting as the Eagles are still alive, if barely, in the NFC East and they're 2-3-1 at home.

Coin Flip: Philadelphia

Prediction: Saints 26 Eagles 23

Washington Football Team at San Francisco 49ers (-4 1/2, 43 1/2) 4:25 pm (Fox) - Right now, the No-Names out of DC are playing at a much higher level than the 49ers, who have basically slipped completely out of playoff contention over the past five weeks, dropping four of five. With Dallas, Arizona, and Seattle still left on their schedule, it may be time to start thinking about 2021.

San Francisco is coming off a Monday night, 34-24, loss to Buffalo. Washington upended the Steelers, handing them their first loss of the season in a defensive tour de force, making this look like a no-brainer for an underdog win as Washington has won three straight and are in tight contention in the NFC East.

Coin Flip: San Francisco

Prediction: Football Team 31 49ers 17

Pittsburgh Steelers (-2, 42) at Buffalo Bills 8:20 pm (NBC) - Buffalo will probably get to see plenty of tape on how Washington contained Pittsburgh in the Steelers 23-17 loss, their first of the season.

Buffalo comes of a very impressive, 34-24, win at San Francisco and improved to 9-3, staying a game ahead of the Dolphins in the AFC East. Its not imperative that Buffalo win here, but Western New York has been a graveyard for plenty of visiting teams over the years, and this Bills team appears poised to win out with games at Denver and New England coming up, with a finale at home with the Dolphins.

Having tasted defeat, the Steelers may not be able to re-energize quickly enough.

Coin Flip: Buffalo

Prediction: Bills 24 Steelers 17

Monday, December 14

Baltimore Ravens (-1, 45 1/2) at Cleveland Browns 8:15 pm (ESPN) - Don't look now, but the Browns are just two games back of the Steelers in the AFC North and they end the season hosting the Pittsburgh bunch. If Buffalo defeats Pittsburgh Sunday night, that will only add to the excitement in Cleveland.

The Browns should be favored by kickoff here, if only by the way Dallas was able to march up and down the field against the sloppy Ravens' defense in Baltimore's 34-17 Tuesday night win. Three missed field goals by Dallas kicker, Greg Zuerlein cost the Cowboys dearly. Cleveland put up 38 first half points on Tennessee last week and they can probably match that number in the full four quarters here, that's how hot they are, winners of four straight.

That 38-6 loss at Baltimore in week one? Ancient history. Forget it.

Coin Flip: Cleveland

Prediction: Browns 38 Ravens 27
