Kristian R. Dyer's Picks:

New York Jets (-3) at Cleveland: After a tight one last week, look for the Jets to come out with more precision early to make a statement after three weeks of sloppy starts. It will be close, but not too scary as the Jets give up some field goals and win 17-9.

Tennessee (-1½) at Miami: It's a good week to be the Titans, going up against the Dolphins with Chad Pennington under center. The away team by a field goal.

Kansas City (-1) at Denver: The Chiefs are grinding their way to a surprising season, which before Week 1 would have been three wins. But Invesco is a tough place to play and the Broncos are poised for a big game. Denver 21-17.

Minnesota at Chicago. Minnesota -1.

Da Bears as Childress' team gets pushed around a bit, losing by two field goals.

Seattle at Arizona (-3): Liking the home team here after a demoralizing and embarrassing loss to the Giants last week for the Seahawks. No way Seattle comes back strong after that one. Cardinals by a touchdown.

New England at Pittsburgh (-4½): The Steelers are such a well balanced team and while the gut says that it will be tough against New England - who got spanked last weekend in Cincinnati - the home team wins, but this one will be by a field goal for Pittsburgh.

Dan Feuerstein's picks:

New York Jets (-3) at Cleveland: This will be a great game as it has former players, a former Jets head coach and family members on both sides. Colt McCoy will finally see a real defense in front of him, but while I will pick the Jets to eek it out with a field goal, something screwy can still happen.

New England at Pittsburgh (-4½): The Pats are going to another AFC North division match-up as they will face the Steelers in Heinz field. The Patriots have struggled on the road and they will continue as the Steelers destroy that defense.

Philadelphia (-3) at Washington: Part two of the McNabb vs. Eagles revenge games. This time it will be at Fed Ex Field. But I think the Eagles will get their revenge and do it in our Nation's Capital.

Carolina (-7½) at Tampa Bay: The sad season continues for the Panthers as John Fox is riding out the season. But they will lose another game as the Buccaneers will swashbuckle their way to victory and keep up with the Falcons.

Minnesota (-1) at Chicago: If Brad Childress lost last week's game he was already expecting to get on the chopping block and lose his job. The Bears will push and firmly keep Childress's head on the block as they will get the ax.

Detroit (-2½) at Buffalo: Even though they say the Bills by 2 1/2, I think the Lions will head up to Ralph Wilson Stadium and Megatron will get his TD's with no Shaun Merriman in sight.

Denis Gorman's picks:

New York Jets (-3) at Cleveland: The Browns have enjoyed blowout wins over the Saints and the Patriots in their last two games—the wins were sandwiched around Cleveland's bye week. The Jets have played life-and-death games for most of this season. We're not entirely sold on the Jets following their home loss to Green Bay and escaping from Detroit with an OT win. So I'm taking the Browns.

Detroit at Buffalo (-2½): Buffalo averages 18.75 points per game but give up an average of 29.125 points per game. So it is a baffling that the National Football League's lone winless team is favored against an improving Lions team. Then, you read stories out of Detroit that suggest quarterback Matt Stafford is out for the remainder of the season with a Grade Three separated shoulder. Reluctantly, I'me backing the Bills.

Baltimore at Atlanta (No Line): Only the best game of the weekend and perhaps a Super Bowl preview. Both teams have young quarterbacks (Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan), talented receiving corps, quality rushing attacks and top-ten defenses. So, yes, arguments can be made either way. Taking the Ravens after a flip of the coin.

Seattle at Arizona (-3): Need more proof that the NFC West is a garbage division? The Seahawks are tied with St. Louis for the divisional lead at 4-4 despite consecutive losses to Oakland and the Giants by an aggregate 74-10. Arizona does not have a quarterback and not much of a defense (allowing an average of 21.875 points per game), so take a deep breath and back the backboneless Seahawks.

Dallas at New York Giants (-15½): The number is obscene but then you remember that Dallas has collectively given up and that the Giants are arguably the National Football League's best team. The Giants have knocked out five starting quarterbacks this season and Jon Kitna is taking snaps behind an offensive line that seemingly believes the game is played under Five Mississippi Blitz rules. Jason Garrett's first game as Cowboys head coach will be a blowout loss as the Giants cover the line with ease.

Philadelphia (-3) at Washington: If you are Donovan McNabb, all you have to worry about is whether Mike Shanahan will bench you in the fourth quarter, then, along with his son, question your fitness. If that's not enough of an insult, look across the field to Andy Reid and the two quarterbacks, Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb, he chose over you. Yeah, not good times and not great memories. The negative feelings will continue Monday Night as the Eagles, perhaps the NFC's sleeper team, wins convincingly.
