Kristian R. Dyer's picks:
Houston at New York Jets (-7½): Liking the Jets to take this one and win it, in regulation no less. Will be close but LaDainian Tomlinson should be poised for a big game as the Texans look to clamp down on Santonio Holmes. That will leave the Jets running back free on short routes. Jets win 21-17.
Buffalo at Cincinnati (-5½): Despite their record, the Bungles aren't a bad team and they can still put up some points. Don't think for a moment that Terrell Owens won't come out against the team that cut him earlier this year and try to make a statement. Bengals win and cover.
Green Bay (-3) at Minnesota: Even the addition by subtraction that is Randy Moss' departure can't help the Vikings. The Packers are primed for a solid game. A field goal and an extra point separate these two sides as Green Bay covers.
Tampa Bay at San Francisco (-3): The 49ers are playing well – and frankly have been all season – but the Buccaneers have got something going on right now. A tight one, a field goal will do it, but Tampa Bay wins.
Seattle at New Orleans (-11½): Lock of the week. Drew Brees will carve up the Seattle secondary for an early Thanksgiving Day feast. Seattle is a bad team at this point and this game should be over by halftime. Saints cover as they go marching down the field.
Atlanta (-3) at St. Louis: Atlanta . Falcons win in a game where Matt Ryan will pick apart the Rams, using the play action to set-up the deep ball against a team that struggles with the big play. Falcons should take this by at least a touchdown, even if it is a road game.
Dan Feuerstein's picks:
Houston at New York Jets (-7½): The Texans had a great start but sadly their inconsistencies have caught up to them. This should be a victory in regulation as the Jets improve to 8-2.
NY Giants at Philadelphia (-3): The Giants got the lights turned off at the Meadowlands last Sunday. Michael Vick and the Eagles will do the same to the Giants in Philly.
Indianapolis at New England (-3): Tom Brady has led his team from a bad start to matching with the Jets for the AFC East led. Even though Peyton Manning's offense has lost a lot of weapons, I still feel the Colts will go to the Razor and get a victory.
Oakland at Pittsburgh (-9): Give Raiders head coach Tom Cable plenty of credit for changing this sad team around. They deserve anything positive their way. But Oakland will get a dose of reality as the Steelers will knock them around.
Green Bay At Minnesota Favre and Childress host the Green Bay Packers at the Metrodome. It really doesn't matter where the game is played. The Packers will take out the Vikings.
Seattle at New Orleans (-11½): Gimme pick of the week. Saints will clip the Seahawks' wings.
Denis Gorman's picks:
Houston at New York Jets (-7½): The Jets are averaging 28.4 points per game in their seven wins this season. Houston , perennially a pre-season pick to reach the playoffs, is 4-5 and lost to Jacksonville on a Hail Mary last Sunday. Take the Jets and the points..
Chicago at Miami (-1): The Dolphins started Chad Pennington in their 29-17 win over Tennessee . He took two snaps before leaving the game—and the season—with a shoulder injury. Chad Henne replaced Pennington, until he suffered a knee injury. So it appears that third string quarterback Tyler Thigpen will bark signals Thursday night. That's enough for us to back the Bears.
Baltimore (-11) at Carolina: Most likely, the Panthers are going to start third string quarterback Tony Pike. Jimmy Clausen suffered a concussion Sunday and Matt Moore is out for the season after a shoulder injury in week two. Did we mention that Pike is a rookie? This is simple. Go with the Ravens.
Green Bay (-3) at Minnesota: What a mess. Unnamed Vikings players ripped head coach Brad Childress to reporters last week. Second year wide receiver Percy Harvin nearly brawled with Childress at a practice. Former Jets employee Jenn Sterger reportedly sat down with the NFL regarding Brett Favre's salacious text messages, phone calls and cell phone photos. The Packers will continue the Vikings' misery.
Atlanta (-3) at St. Louis: Steve Spagunolo is in the running for NFL Coach of the Year. The Rams are 4-5-0 in a season that most thought they would win two or three games at most. St. Louis plays hard but they do not have the talent to hang with Atlanta for a full game. Atlanta wins comfortably.
New York Giants at Philadelphia (-3): The NFC East Game of the Year will merely determine whether the Giants are a conference heavyweight or something less. Seemingly every Cowboy dating back to Don Meredith torched the Giants defense for big plays Sunday. Oh, did we forget mention that the Eagles exploded for 59 points against the Redskins Monday Night? Backing the Eagles.
