The Thursday night matchup between the Eagles and the Seahawks could be a boring start to our Week 13 games.  Both teams are 4-7 and the only really exciting game for either team was when the Eagles beat the Giants two weeks ago.  This game will probably land in favor of Vince Young and the Eagles.


Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins

This game should be an easy one for the Raiders.  They currently lead the AFC West while the Dolphins are trailing in the AFC East.


Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills

While the Titans may have a better record, the Bills have better numbers overall, thanks to their early season success.  If Ryan Fitzpatrick can make some plays this one should go to the Bills.


Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears

Even with Jay Cutler out for the rest of the season, the Bears should have this in the bag.  Kansas City has not been very productive and are ranked 29th in points this season.


Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings

Tim Tebow and the Broncos are on a winning streak.  We all know how motivated he was back in his Florida days, and things just keep looking up in Denver.


New York Jets at Washington Redskins

In every game that the Redskins have won, it has been based on luck.  The Jets, however, have better players like Plaxico Burress and LaDanian Tomlinson who help to carry Mark Sanchez when he isn't playing top-notch.


Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers

These two teams have surprisingly been neck and neck this season and while the Bengals lost their first matchup, I think Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are ready to strike some revenge on Big Ben.

Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans

Houston has been through the riot with quarterbacks in the past few weeks.  First they lost Matt Schaub and now Matt Leinart, so who do they turn to? Former Falcons rival Jake Delhomme.  Jake probably won't be able to handle being in the pocket and facing the Falcons defense so I give this one to Atlanta.


Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

These two NFC South rivals are facing each other for the first time this season on Sunday.  Historically this is always a good game and while the Panthers may have lost last year, Cam Newton will certainly out-throw Josh Freeman for the Panthers' fourth win of the season.


Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

Do we really need to explain why the Pats will win this one?


Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns

Baltimore dominates in just about everything besides rushing yards and the Browns just can't swing it this year, so the Ravens will win this game.


Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals

Another pick that is just a little too easy.  Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray have been killing it in Dallas, while the only person on fire in Arizona is Patrick Peterson.


Green Bay Packers at New York Giants

Green Bay will hands down go 12-0 this Sunday.  Aaron Rodgers is just not going to back down.


St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco is exceeding everyone's expectations and they have a drastic lead in the NFC West.  The 49ers would have to not show up to lose this game.


Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints

Detroit has had its moments of glory this year, but with Ndamukong Suh out for two games for unsportsmanlike behavior, this game will most likely go to Drew Brees and the Saints; it won't be an easy task for them though.


San Diego Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars

These two teams should certainly not be playing on Monday Night Football, just because they both have been playing so poorly.  Philip Rivers and the Chargers may just get another win during this game though, particularly with the last-minute coaching changes in Jacksonville.
