Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles laid an egg last week against Dallas despite playing many of their starters. The Eagles had been playing well of late but Dallas has too. Dallas seems to be the hotter team at the moment, and they are playing at home. In fact, Dallas is playing well enough to run the table. Dallas.
New York Jets @ Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals looked like the Bungles of old against the Jets last week, even though most of their starters played. It was an embarrassing display of professional football. I am sure they will play better this week but how do you flip a switch in a week and come out and beat a team that just embarrassed you? I don’t think they will. I think the Jets win a close one. New York Jets.
Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots
The only reason Baltimore beat Oakland last week is Charlie Frye got hurt and JaMarcus Russell handed the Ravens two turnovers, which sealed the game for the Ravens. Everyone is jumping on the Ravens wings this week since the Patriots lost Wes Welker. The Ravens tend to play to the level of their opponent. I think the Patriots will win a close one here. New England.
Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals
Like the Eagles and Bungles, the Cardinals didn’t show up for their game last week against Green Bay. Again, momentum counts for something going into the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers has emerged as an elite quarterback and the Packers are playing well and are on a roll. I’m going to with Green Bay in this one.
