Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 – Saint Louis Rams 21
|New York Jets at Dallas Cowboys – Saturday 8:25pm|
I just get the feeling that even the Cowboys know they can’t win with Matt Cassel. Expect a heavy dose of Chris Ivory in this as the Jets pound it down low on the Cowoys as Dallas fails to mount much of an effort. Steer clear of your Cowboys as it will be a struggle for them.

Prediction: New York Jets 27 – Dallas Cowboys 23
|Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm|
Fantasy wise you want to lean more toward your Texans than your Colts as the Colts defense gives up yards. Why the Colts keep it close is due to some unfortunate turnovers by the Texans in really terrible spots. It’s a nice fantasy matchup for your Texans but the Colts find a way to win this.
Prediction: Indianapolis Colts 27 – Houston Texans 23
|Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots – Sunday 1:00pm|
It’s Tom Brady against the world. Expect a big day for number 12 as he picks apart the Titans secondary. Brandon Bolden makes a sneaky start here too. It sounds like Julian Edelman may be effective here but if he is held out, Danny Amendola makes a very nice play indeed. Expect the Titans to struggle in this and have a difficult time keeping pace with the Patriots.

Prediction: New England Patriots 34 – Tennessee Titans 23
|Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 1:00pm|
The Falcons can throw the ball and they’ll play well in the air here. Do not be shy about starting your Falcons in the passing game. The problem as usual for the Falcons is that they suffer in every other phase of the game and with the Jaguars running up the score, this will be a difficult game for the Falcons to win on the road. Don’t be shy about Denard Robinson either, he will run well here in a game that the Jaguars will win quite easily.

Prediction: Jacksonville Jaguars 33 – Atlanta Falcons 23
|Carolina Panthers at New York Giants – Sunday 1:00pm|
The Panthers are a dominant team thanks to their blend of size and talent. The Giants can throw the ball thanks to Eli Manning and Odell Beckham but they are a one trick pony and that simply won’t be enough to get past a team as deep as the Panthers.
Favorite: Carolina Panthers by 5.5
Prediction: Carolina Panthers 37 – New York Giants 27
