Kristian R. Dyer's picks:
Cincinnati at New York Jets (-10): We know that OchoCinco and Owens love to show up in big games and for the Bengals, the Thursday night game is as big as the 2-8 team will get this year. Jets win, but only by a touchdown and don't cover. This time, the defense will step up big in the fourth quarter.
New England (-7) at Detroit: Patriots get on Detroit early in what could and should be a high-scoring game at Ford Field. New England wins by two touchdowns, making mashed potatoes of their hosts.
Tennessee at Houston (no line): No line? Really? The Texans are desperate for a win after last Sunday's drop to the Jets. Given the Titans quarterback situation, definitely thinking they throw this one like so many shoulder pads into the seats. Texans by a touchdown.
Carolina at Cleveland (no line): Yet another line that baffles as the Browns are the best team in the league with a losing record. It's going to be fun to see Jimmy Clausen battle Colt McCoy, two rookie quarterbacks who dropped in the draft like so many trousers in a TSA airport search. Taking Cleveland by six points.
St. Louis at Denver (no line): Given their Monday night humiliation, the Broncos won't be timid on Sunday, and at Invesco they're always tough. Look for Denver to let loose a little bit against a Rams defense that is always good for a mental lapse…or three…per game. Broncos 21-17.
San Diego at Indianapolis (no line): At home and with a bad loss in New England the week before, the Colts will come back to win, depleted roster or not. It won't be easy, but it will be a fun one to watch. Colts 31-Chargers 27. That sounds good, right?
Dan Feuerstein's picks:
Cincinnati at New York Jets (-10): The T.Ocho show is coming to the New Meadowlands Stadium and once again their mouths are wide open and talking too much trash. The Jets will shut them up and "Revis Island" will have two victims in one game.
New England (-7) at Detroit: Turkey Day in Detroit will be fun, but unfortunately, the Pats will feast on the Motor City Kitties.
Green Bay at Atlanta (-1): The Packers are a good team with Aaron Rogers at QB and they can make the playoffs, but they are heading to the Georgia Dome where the Falcons are unbeatable and will stay that way against the Packers.
San Diego at Indianapolis (no line): We are at the last quarter of the regular season and this is where the Chargers will shine and try to make the playoffs. The will strike the Colts in Indy, because Peyton Manning 's weapons will be rusty.
Jacksonville at NY Giants (-9): After two terrible losses to NFC East Divisional opponents, this is the week where the Giants should win at home against the Jags. But something tells me the Jags will sneak out a victory on a field goal.
Tampa Bay at Baltimore (-8 1/2): MB&T Bank Stadium is a tough place for a visiting team to get a win. Baltimore is waiting for the Buccaneers to come over for a loss. For Rahim Morris' side it will be a loss.
Denis Gorman's picks:
Cincinnati at New York Jets (-10): The Jets have won four of their last five by an aggregate 20.6-19.2 against teams that have a collective 19-31 record. That, folks, is what you call a trend. Take the Jets to win outright but not to cover.
New England (-7) at Detroit: The Lions annual Thanksgiving Day game will be yet another loss. Detroit's season ended when Matt Stafford left the 23-20 loss to the Jets with a Grade Three shoulder separation. Patriots cover the spread with ease.
New Orleans (-3) at Dallas: Let's hear it for the Cowboys. They quit on themselves and former coach Wade Phillips. Phillips was fired by Jerry Jones, who promoted Jason Garrett, on November 8. In the two weeks since the coaching change, Dallas is 2-0 and outscored the Giants and Lions by an aggregate 68-39. The abbreviated winning streak ends Thanksgiving afternoon as the Saints will win in a walk.
Carolina at Cleveland (no line): Carolina coach John Fox passed on starting rookie quarterback Tony Pike against the Ravens last Sunday, instead opting for someone named Brian St. Pierre. St. Pierre completed 13-of-28 passes for 173 yards for a touchdown, two interceptions and was sacked three times. According to a North Carolina newspaper, the Panthers signed free agent quarterback Keith Null after St. Pierre "complained of a sore shoulder after Sunday's loss." Did we mention that the Panthers are 1-9? Take the Browns.
Miami at Oakland (no line): This game will be the 5,000th NFL game broadcast by CBS. To be honest, we're more looking forward to the footage of the legendary games these rivals played in the 1970s than what will transpire at the Black Hole. Going with the Raiders.
Philadelphia (-3) at Chicago: The Bears improved to a NFC North-leading 7-3-0 by blanking Miami, 16-0, last Thursday night. Philly leads the NFC East with a similar 7-3-0 record. Chicago is tied for the NFL lead in defense while the Eagles are second in the NFL in offense, averaging 28.4 points per game. This should be an entertaining playoff preview and we're taking Philadelphia and the points.
