LOSS
Sun 12/10

Ryan Shazier being sidelined is obviously a blow for the Steelers, but it may also be something for Pittsburgh to rally behind at home. Both teams have been relatively unimpressive despite winning consistently, but the Steelers should have enough offense to win by a touchdown with homefield on its side. Plus, who do you trust: Big Ben or Joe Flacco? I rest my case.

Sun 12/10

The Eagles were awful against the Seahawks but even worse was Philadelphia's coaching and its lack of aggressiveness early. With the Eagles staying out West and free of distraction following that loss, there should be no question that it learned its lesson from the top on down after that defeat. The Rams are legitimate this season, but their homefield advantage is basically nonexistent. Give me what I have felt has been the better team all season.

Sun 12/10

Seattle is riding high -- and deservedly so -- after that big home win over Philadelphia, but anyone who watched that game knows the Eagles shot themselves in the foot constantly in that game. The Seahawks also had one of the best crowds in the country at their back. Sunday sees this Seattle team fly across the country -- for only the second time this season -- to take on one of the NFL's best defenses. Russell Wilson is going to be running for his life all day, and the Jags will take advantage of the Seahawks? underwhelming front. Jacksonville might beat Seattle by a touchdown. (I can?t believe I just wrote that.)

Sun 12/10

Green Bay is obviously not as good without Aaron Rodgers, but the Packers have covered three of the last four with Brett Hundley and only need a field goal to beat the worst team in the NFL. This team only lost by three to Pittsburgh and beat both Chicago and Tampa Bay. It can cover three against Cleveland.

Sun 12/10

There is something to be said for sentimentality with Eli Manning returning, and the Giants will be amped for this game ? particularly at home. That said, they have been awful this season, and I think the Cowboys really found something last week. With its tackles healthy and Alfred Morris running fine, look for Dallas to get the cover and win.
