Kristian R. Dyer's picks:

New York Jets (-4) at Detroit: The Jets are primed to bounce back after last week's disappointing game. Look for New York to ground and pound and force the run, setting up the play action for a big play or two. It won't be an easy game, but Stafford throws two picks to help settle this one midway through the 4th quarter. Jets 21-13 winners.

New England (-4) at Cleveland: The Patriots have serious momentum and though the Browns are a team on the rise, New England smells a chance to make the playoffs and perhaps win the AFC East. This non-divisional win would go a long way towards getting at least the wild card spot. Pats by a touchdown.

Arizona at St. Minnesota (-9): Picking the upset here with the Vikings, who after a week of distractions, emerge battered and bruised like their "starting" quarterback. Arizona has disappointed this year, but still has plenty of talent. Cardinals by a field goal.

Indianapolis at Philadelphia (-2½): A brutal road test for Indianapolis who should be confident to get a win after Monday night's dominating performance. Colts move to 3-2 on the road as they win by a field goal.

Pittsburgh (-4½) at Cincinnati: The Steelers will win their backyard brawl with the Bungles and will do so in dominating fashion. This spread should be more but it's a road game for Pittsburgh . Guessing the Steelers by 10.

Dan Feuerstein's picks:

New York Jets (-4) at Detroit: The last three opponents for the New York Jets have shown that their running game is horrible, but can throw the ball to keep themselves in the game. Right now the Jets are 1-1 but I still think the Jets will get a win over the Motor City kitties.

New England (-4) at Cleveland: You think this could be a win for the Patriots, but somehow Colt McCoy will surprise you and grab a surprising win. The Dawg Pound will be rocking and Brady will earn a loss.

Miami at Baltimore (-5): The Dolphins are a strange team this season. They can't win at home, yet away from Sun Life Stadium they can. But the Ravens are too strong at home and they will stop the Fins road winning streak.

Dallas at Green Bay (-9½): If you saw the video of the drunk wife giving her husband a lap dance at the new Cowboys stadium, then that's the only way someone associated with the Cowboys will score. Packers will take the points.

Tampa Bay at Atlanta (-9½): The battle for the top spot of the NFC South will be a fun match up. Even though the Falcons are home, I have a funny feeling the Bucs will claim an upset.

Chicago (-1) at Buffalo: Can you believe Shawn Merriman got picked up by the Bills? It won't matter. DA BEARS!

Denis Gorman's picks:

New York Jets (-4) at Detroit: There has been plenty of pointed criticism of the Jets following their 9-0 loss to the Packers. The criticism is reminiscent of what was said and written about the Jets in the days after their 10-9 season opening home Monday Night loss to Baltimore . The Jets responded by winning their next five games. We think the Jets replicate that winning streak starting Sunday in Detroit, where they cover with ease.

Miami at Baltimore (-5): This is easy. The Dolphins were lucky to win outright against a pretty mediocre-at-best Cincinnati team last week. Baltimore is among the league's premier teams. Take the Ravens.

New Orleans (-7) at Carolina: The Saints' 20-10 Sunday Night home win over the Steelers was their best win of the season. And it may be the jumping off point for a team attempting to defend its championship. Take the Saints against the National Football League's second-worst team.

Arizona at Minnesota (-9): The Cardinals lost a heartbreaker last Sunday, 38-35 at home to Tampa . Minnesota is in complete disarray, having waived Randy Moss Tuesday and starting a quarterback who is one hit away from retirement. The Cardinals won't win but they will lose by less than nine points.

New York Giants (-7½) at Seattle: While we are not believers in the Giants—not sold on their offensive line—they might be the NFC's most explosive team. That should be more than enough to beat a Seattle team that was humiliated by the Raiders, 33-3, last Sunday.

Dallas at Green Bay (-9½): The Packers were not especially impressive in beating the Jets, 9-0, at the Meadowlands Sunday. Still, they'll get healthy against a 1-6 Dallas team that Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard suggested quit last Sunday. Packers win big.
