This is an interesting week in the NFL - for sure. Besides the Colts and the Saints probably coming out of this week still undefeated, some other teams will be tested. Who will lead the AFC North - Cincinnati or Pittsburgh? Will the Giants snap their losing streak against the Chargers? Will the Cowboys get on the right page against the Eagles?
These five games listed in this slide show will give you the answers. Might be a good idea to get Direct TV!!
If you weren't sleeping under a rock the past few weeks, you know the Giants have lost three in a row after winning their first five games. This is a must-win for the G-Men and they know it.
They play the Chargers at the Meadowlands for the first time since 1995. To win, the Giants need to keep pressure on Philip Rivers and Eli Manning needs to improve his passing efficiency.
This game will be a nail-biter, but I think the Giants will prevail. Giants 27-20.
The Bengals are coming off an impressive win over the Bears and plan to continue the momentum at home against Baltimore. But the Ravens, as you can imagine, have plans of their own.
The Ravens are looking to avenge their 17-14 last-second lost against the Bengals last month. If the Ravens can contain the Bengals power running game, they should come out on top.
Joe Flacco and company also need to take advantage of the off-and-on Bengal defense that gives up an average of 253 passing yards per game.
But I think, Carson Palmer's incredible season will continue to shine. Bengals win, 31-27.
Over the last couple years, the Patriots and the Dolphins games have been very entertaining and interesting.
Last year, the Dolphins snapped the Patriots' 21-game regular-season winning streak. But the Patriots got the last laugh in the rematch when Matt Kassel threw for 415 yards with three TDs for a 48-28 victory.
This year should be no different. Look for the Dolphins to expose the weak Patriots' defensive line with the Wildcat formation. The Patriots will counter with their league's second-highest offense passing attack.
Pats win, 35-21.
The defending Super Bowl champs haven't won in Denver in the regular season since 1990. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin looks to end that streak on Sunday.
Look for the Steelers to blitz Kyle Orton a lot in order get him off his game and to shut down the Broncos passing attack. If the Broncos can get their running game going and control their time of possession, they might have a chance to win.
Steelers prevail, 27-21.
The hype on this NFC East rivalry game is so big it's almost about to explode. Cowboys vs. Eagles is the game of the week.
Both teams are tied for first in their division. Both teams have winning streaks involved. And its on prime time TV!!
The Cowboys need to run the ball down the Eagles throat with their trio of running backs in order to win. The Eagles need a rely on Donovan McNabb to make the big plays with his arm and mobility.
Even though the Cowboys are labeled 'America's Team,' a win against their hated rivals will give them its own identity they been searching for all season long. Frankly, I think the Eagles will crush them with their aggressive play and passing attack.
Eagles win, 35-23
