Eagles at Lions (Thursday 12:30pm)
Two teams seemingly going in opposite directions lately. 
Winner: Lions

Panthers at Cowboys (Thursday 4:30pm)
The last time Carolina defeated Dallas, Troy Aikman was the Cowboys' QB. Can returning Romo make it two in a row to give the Panthers their first loss? 
Winner: Cowboys

Bears at Packers (Thursday 8:30pm)
Brett Favre retirement ceremony. Thanksgiving Night. Lambeau Field. Too much for the Bears to handle. 
Winner: Packers

Vikings at Falcons (Sunday 1pm)
An important matchup with NFc Playoff implications.  After a 5-0 start, the Falcons seemed to have lost their way, including a bad home loss to the Colts last Sunday. Devonta Freeman's health looms big for this one (concussion).
Winner: Vikings

Rams at Bengals (Sunday 1pm)
Remember when the Rams were rolling? Remember when the Bengals were undefeated? Two weeks makes a big difference in the NFL.
Winner: Bengals

Saints at Texans (Sunday 1pm)
Not even firing Rob Ryan can save the New Orleans defense. Texans getting on track at a good time in the AFC South. 
Winner: Texans

Bucs at Colts (Sunday 1pm)
If you had the Bucs and Colts with the same record after 10 games before the season, you're a genius! Surprisingly, both teams need the win to stay in playoff contention.
Winner: Bucs

Chargers at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)
Is anyone healthy left in San Diego? 
Winner: Jaguars

Bills at Chiefs (Sunday 1pm)
Poor Rex Ryan.  No, not really. Chiefs are on a roll gunning for five wins in a row. 
Winner: Chiefs

Dolphins at Jets (Sunday 1pm)
The last time these two teams met, Joe Philbin coached Miami and the game was in London. Revenge time?
Winner: Dolphins

Raiders at Titans (Sunday 1pm)
Three weeks ago, the Raiders were rolling at 4-3, scoring at will. Good spot for Derek Carr to get Oakland back on track. 
Winner: Raiders

Giants at Redskins (Sunday 1pm)
Winner leads the NFC East. Yikes!
Winner: Redskins

Cardinals at 49ers (Sunday 4:05pm)
Carson Palmer is a legit MVP candidate. 
Winner: Cardinals

Steelers at Seahawks (Sunday 4:25pm)
This is not your father's Legion of Boom. Big Ben won't get stifled in Seattle.
Winner: Steelers

Patriots at Broncos (Sunday 8:30pm)
Who would've thought this would be a battle of two of the best two defenses in the NFL? Who would've thought it would be Brady-Osweiler 1 instead of Brady-Manning 17? The question is does TB12 have a WR left to throw the ball? 
Winner: Patriots

Ravens at Browns (Monday 8:30pm)
Perfect time to catch up on that Christmas shopping. Friends and family game here. 
Winner: Browns
