Pro football reporter Sam Farmer breaks down the games.
Off: Cardinals, Bills, Panthers and Bengals
Last week's record: 8-6 Against the spread: 7-7
Season: 43-41 Against the spread: 34-42
Noon Ravens (4-1) at Patriots (3-1)
Line: Patriots by 2.5 Over/under: 44.5
Patriots are excellent after week off, so this should be interesting. Still, Joe Flacco should feast on a porous secondary.
Pick: Ravens 24, Patriots 20
Noon Falcons (4-1) at Eagles (3-2)
Line: Eagles by 3 Over/under: 42.5
Pick: Falcons 20, Eagles 17
Noon Chiefs (3-1) at Texans (3-2)
Line: Texans by 4.5 Over/under: 45
Texans have lost two of three — and luster they had with early victories over Colts and Redskins. Watch for Matt Cassel to wake up.
Pick: Chiefs 24, Texans 21
Noon Seahawks (2-2) at Bears (4-1)
TV: WFLD-Ch. 32
Line: Bears by 6.5 Over/under: 37.5
Seahawks are only team that has yet to score in first quarter. That spells trouble on the road, even against banged-up Bears.
Pick: Bears 17, Seahawks 13
Noon Saints (3-2) at Buccaneers (3-1)
Line: Saints by 4.5 Over/under: 43.5
Drew Brees should look better after horrible outing, but Saints are really struggling. This could be an upset in making.
Pick: Buccaneers 21, Saints 20
Noon Dolphins (2-2) at Packers (3-2)
Line: Off Over/under: Off
At full strength, Packers are better team, yet they have as many significant injuries as anyone in the league.
Pick: Dolphins 20, Packers 17
Noon Browns (1-4) at Steelers (3-1)
Line: Steelers by 13.5 Over/under: 37
Pick: Steelers 28, Browns 13
Noon Chargers (2-3) at Rams (2-3)
Line: Chargers by 8 Over/under: 45
After four straight 2-3 starts, Chargers have a pattern. This is point they start turning around season.
Pick: Chargers 35, Rams 20
Noon Lions (1-4) at Giants (3-2)
Line: Giants by 10 Over/under: 44.5
After slogging through first three games, Giants have pulled out of tailspin by picking up defensive pressure.
Pick: Giants 27, Lions 20
3:05 p.m. Jets (4-1) at Broncos (2-3)
TV: WBBM-Ch. 2
Line: Jets by 3 Over/under: 41
Kyle Orton is putting up absurd passing numbers for Broncos, but Jets have dialed up right defensive schemes so far.
Pick: Jets 23, Broncos 17
3:05 p.m. Raiders (2-3) at 49ers (0-5)
Line: 49ers by 6.5 Over/under: 41
If Raiders were hoping to get upper hand in Bay Area, now's the time. 49ers consistently hurt themselves with mistakes.
Pick: Raiders 28, 49ers 24
3:15 p.m. Cowboys (1-3) at Vikings (1-3)
TV: WFLD-Ch. 32
Line: Vikings by 1.5 Over/under: 44.5
Both Super Bowl contenders-pretenders are reeling. A key will be keeping heat off Tony Romo, which Cowboys couldn't do vs. Titans.
Pick: Vikings 17, Cowboys 12
7:20 p.m. Colts (3-2) at Redskins (3-2)
TV: WMAQ-Ch. 5
Line: Colts by 3 Over/under: 43.5
Redskins have some vulnerabilities in secondary, and if anyone can exploit them, it's Peyton Manning. Colts have lost two on road.
Pick: Colts 28, Redskins 20
7:30 p.m. Monday Titans (3-2) at Jaguars (3-2)
Line: Titans by 3 Over/under: 45
Left-for-dead Jaguars are back on feet after winning two in row. They have not had much luck stopping Chris Johnson, though.
Pick: Titans 21, Jaguars 16
