Things are starting to look up a little. There are multiple divisional clashes and young, exciting quarterbacks lining up against quality pass-rushing opponents. Overall, there are a solid 4.5 (two are .75s) games worth seeing.
Best Game: Baltimore Ravens vs. Houston Texans. A divisional playoff round rematch, but this time, the Texans welcome the Ravens. It's unlikely that Baltimore will have Terrell Suggs back, but hopefully, each team comes in as healthy as possible. We could have the seeds of a quality rivalry.
Other Notables: Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants; Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals; Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys vs. Carolina Panthers.
