New England (8-5) vs. Buffalo (5-8) - With New England sitting with an 8-5 record, Jaguars fans should be hoping for a Patriots loss. Although a three-game losing streak isn't likely for New England, the Jaguars could finish with a better record than the Pats if that occurs. Likelihood of New England losing? 20%. The Pats haven't won a road game in the United States, but Buffalo doesn't have the quarterback nor the head coach to take down the Pats in a big spot.
Miami (7-6) vs. Tennessee (6-7)- Although the Titans are quite possibly the Jaguars most hated rivals, Jags fans need to be pulling for Tennessee. A Dolphins loss would put them as well as the Titans in a three-way tie with the Jags. Likelihood of Miami losing? 55%. Miami is a solid team with an up and coming quarterback, but Tennessee has been red hot, winning six of their last seven games.
Houston (6-7) vs. St. Louis (1-12)- The Texans aren't much of a threat to the Jaguars as they are still one game behind without the advantage of a tie-breaker. Still in any AFC vs. NFC matchup, Jags fans should be pulling for the NFC team. Likelihood of Houston losing? 10%. Although the game is on the road, the Texans would have to have a major meltdown to drop a game to the hapless Rams.
Atlanta (6-7) vs. New York Jets (7-6)- The Jets have been up and down this season, and although they haven't been all that impressive, their 7-6 record is good enough to have them in contention. AFC-NFC matchup, no need for further explanation. Likelihood of New York Jets losing? 30%. Mike Smith's Falcons have been decimated by injuries and they will likely be without both quarterback Matt Ryan and running back Michael Turner on Sunday. Jets should roll.
Chicago (5-8) vs. Baltimore (7-6)- The Ravens are coming off an offensive explosion against Detroit, and they currently own the sixth seed. Although it's a bit of a long-shot, fans of every AFC wild-card contender other than Baltimore need to pull for the Bears. Likelihood of Baltimore losing? 15%. The Bears have been awful this season and it's not likely that they'll give much of an effort in the snowstorm that's expected to hit Baltimore.
Oakland (4-9) vs. Denver (8-5)- The Broncos are the current owners of the fifth-seed, but it's possible that if they lose out they can be on the outside looking in. Fans of AFC wild-card contenders should cheer for the Raiders to pull the upset. Likelihood of Denver losing? 5%. The Broncos are facing a Charlie Frye led Raiders team and the only thing that can be better than that is if Jamarcus Russell were to play.
Cincinnati (9-4) vs. San Diego (10-3) - Although not likely, it's possible that the Bengals can lose out and become one of what is sure to be a logjam of teams at 9-7. Go Chargers. Likelihood of Cincinnati losing? 80%. It's been a rough week for the Bengals with the passing of Chris Henry and they're facing one of the hottest teams in the AFC on the road.
Green Bay (9-4) vs. Pittsburgh (6-7) – Although the Steelers are in a five-game losing skid, they are still not yet mathematically eliminated. Likelihood of Pittsburgh losing? 45%. The Steelers are slumping, but the Packers likely won't need this game.
