Kristian R. Dyer's picks: Miami at New York Jets (No Line): This is a tough match-up for the Jets, who need to run the ball well in the wet conditions expected for Sunday, coupled with the recent struggles of their quarterback. But, don't expect a bounce back as the hangover from Monday night looms against a desperate Miami team. Dolphins win by three.

Atlanta (-8 ½) at Carolina: Falcons continue to roll in what should be a big win for Atlanta. Consider this a lock game where the road team covers the spread.

New York Giants at Minnesota (No Line): The Giants are playing well, even given some big injuries to their offensive line. The Vikings will have a tough time with Brandon Jacobs in this game, who will go over 100 yards in a New York win.

Seattle at San Francisco (- 4 ½): 49'ers win as they try to keep their head coach's job. Home team wins, but won't cover.

St. Louis at New Orleans (-10): The Rams are teasing us with their potential but they're not as good as the defending Super Bowl champs. New Orleans wins but won't cover in this game.

Denver at Arizona (No Line): A toss-up game but the Broncos will be playing with a huge distraction over their heads and need at least another week to regroup. Look for the Cardinals to win a close, sloppy one.

Dan Feuerstein's picks: Miami at New York Jets (No Line): Monday Night is over and the Jets can re-group and take care of the Dolphins at home. They will get their 10th win over the Fins by any means necessary.

Denver at Arizona (No Line): Josh McDaniels firing on Monday Night was surprising, but whoever takes over the Broncos will lead them to victory over the pathetic Cardinals. Kansas City at San Diego (-7 ½): The Chargers lost their first game in the month of December, and they will lose Sunday to the surprising Chiefs.

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (-10): This is the day that the toothless tigers will regain their teeth and sink into the steel curtain and get a win. This will be a glorious victory back in Cincy as the road team will be heroes in steel town........................................Awwwwwww, who am I kidding? Steelers take the Bengals stripes and win by plenty. Indianapolis (-1 ½) at Tennessee: Colts win and stamp Jeff Fisher's walking papers at the end of the regular season.

Tampa Bay (-2 ½) at Washington: What the hell is Mike Shanahan doing in the Nation's Capital? He marches to the beat of his own drum and has psyched out his own players. Raheem Morris and the Bucs will take the win and knock out Donovan McNabb.

Denis Gorman's picks: Miami at New York Jets (No Line): Monday night's Jets-Patriots showdown was as obnoxiously overhyped as the Miami Heat-Cleveland Cavaliers NBA regular season game last Thursday. The Jets, like the Cavaliers, did not show up for their prime time matchup and were promptly embarrassed in front of a nationwide audience. While there is little hope for the Cavs to compete for a championship, the Jets still have championship aspirations despite the loss. Good teams rebound after bad losses, so the onus is on the Jets. We think that Rex Ryan's team will beat the Dolphins.

New York Giants at Minnesota Vikings (No Line): Leslie Frazier has done a decent job after replacing the much-despised Brad Childress. Still, the Giants pass rush should be able to get to either Brett Favre or Tavaris Jackson. Giants win.

Tampa Bay (-2 ½) at Washington: The Redskins allowed the Giants to rush for 197 yards and four touchdowns. If they had any pride, they would use that humiliation as a galvanizing point for the remainder of the season. But they don't and won't. Taking Tampa.

Atlanta (-8 ½) at Carolina: The Panthers had a 14-3 lead at halftime Sunday in Seattle. They were outscored 28-0 in the final 30 minutes. Atlanta scored two touchdowns in a 5:28 span of the fourth quarter to turn a 24-14 deficit into a 28-24 win in Tampa Bay. Simply, go with the Falcons.

Green Bay (-7 ½) at Detroit: Looking forward to seeing how the Lions attempt to contain Clay Matthews. Don't think they can and believe Aaron Rodgers will pick apart the Lions defense. Picking the Packers.

Philadelphia (-3) at Dallas: Not sure what is more despicable: The way the Redskins have collectively quit or the way Dallas has begun to play after Wade Phillips was fired. Either way, we're backing the Eagles because they have something to play for. Namely, the NFC East Championship and a top seed in the NFC playoffs.
