The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally got the monkey off their back last Monday night. Now, they’ll look to make it two in a row against an equally struggling Atlanta Falcons squad. The Falcons, who started the season a favorite in the NFC, are 2-7 and on pace for one of their worst seasons in franchise history. A loss on Sunday would prove that to be even more the case, against a team that is 1-8 and didn’t get their first win till this past weekend. The fact of the matter is that Atlanta has the more talented team, with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Steven Jackson on offense. However, they just haven’t been able to put it together at all this year and this weekend may be another example. While the Falcons may be struggling just to find motivation to continue on this season, you can bet the Bucs will be riding high after their first win. Despite the fact that the Flacons won this matchup earlier in the year by eight, they are only a one-point favorite in this one and therefore it could be a good game to side with the Bucs.

AFC East rookie quarterbacks will matchup on Sunday when Geno Smith and the 5-4 Jets head to Buffalo to face EJ Manuel and the 3-7 Bills. The Jets, find themselves just a few games back of the Patriots in the AFC East and are right in the thick of playoff contention. The Bills, on the other hand, are hoping that Manuel will continue to gain experience for the remainder of this season, without getting hurt, in preparation for next year. These teams matchup up during Week 3 of this season, in which the Jets walked away with a 27-20 win. However, even with that said, the Jets are only considered to be a one-point favorite going into Sunday. Two interesting things to note in this one. First, the Jets have tied the NFL record for alternating wins and losses for this season, which they have done with each game so far this season. However, with their bye-week being last week, they’ll hope to break that trend this weekend. Second, Santonio Holmes may make his return to action, being out since Week 4. Considering he had over 150 yards receiving and a touchdown in the last contest that these two teams met, you can be assured that he’ll be a welcome addition to the Jets offense. A lot is riding on this one for the Jets, so we’ll see if they can handle the pressure.

Despite major differences in record and how their seasons have played out, the 6-3 Lions are only three point favorites over the 3-6 Steelers. This is the latest in the season that the Lions have been in sole place in their division in the last 14-years, so you can be assured they’ll want to stay there with Chicago, and maybe Green Bay, breathing down their neck. As for the Steelers, this has been nothing more than a lost season for them. They are likely to be without Shamarko Thomas or LaMaarr Woodley on defense, meaning Calvin Johnson has the potential for another huge day to add to his already record-setting season. The only team on the Lions schedule, as of this weekend, that has a winning record is the Packers for their Thanksgiving showdown. Therefore they will want to plan a succession of wins that will potentially give them home field advantage in the playoffs. And although they need to especially win games like the one this weekend against Pittsburgh, keep in mind that the Lions haven’t won in their last nine trips to Heinz Field. However with the woes that the Steelers are facing this year, it may be time for that streak to come to an end.

With a win this weekend, and the fact that the Cowboys have a bye-week, the Eagles have a chance of locking up sole position in first place in the NFC East. And what might be more important is that the Eagles will look to win at home for the first time in their last ten games in Philly. All of the Eagles wins have come on the road this year, and they are 0-4 in front of their home fans. A sign that could be for the changes to come is that Nick Foles has been given the green light for this weekend, after putting up 10 touchdowns in the last two weeks, and amassing a QB rating of 155.3. Foles has been sup hot lately and will look to continue that against a divisional rival, and a quarterback who was selected before him, in the Redskins and RGIII. The Redskins have looked better in their last few games, except for giving up a loss to the Vikings last weekend. Nonetheless, their 3-6 record brings them in as 4.5-point underdogs in this one. However, a win by them puts them right back in the conversation in the NFC East as well. This division isn’t necessarily the most talented in the league, but it may be one of the most interesting because of how close the teams all are.

Washington Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles

Even though everyone expected the Ravens to be out of it this year, a subpar season by the Steelers and continual mishaps from the Bengals means that Baltimore is still right in the thick of things. Coming off a win last weekend against those Bengals, the Ravens were able to snap a three-game losing streak and gain a bit of confidence in the process. This weekend they’ll face a Bears team that is looking to stay in the conversation in their own division as well. At 5-4, the Bears are in second place in the NFC North, however their 21-19 loss last weekend was a heartbreaker that went down to the final seconds of the game. Although he came back from injury last weekend, it is likely that Jay Cutler will miss this weekends game as he seemed to add to his injury woes last weekend. That means Josh McCown will get another start, and the Bengals will have an even better chance. The Bears are only a three point favorite in this one, and that’s with the game being played at Solider Field. Both teams need a win, so we could be looking at a back and forth game throughout the entire contest.

Baltimore Ravens
Chicago Bears

The Bengals should be running away with the AFC North by now. Starting the season 6-2, their last two games against the Dolphins and Ravens should’ve been a chance to clutch their division, especially considering how hot and cold the rest of the teams in the AFC North have been. Instead, overtime loses in both contests have the Bengals riding a two game losing streak and a 6-4 overall record. Now they welcome the Browns to town, who surprisingly find themselves in second place in the division. A win for the Browns this weekend would put them right in the thick of things; and it would likely throw Bengals-nation into a state of panic. The Bengals are a six-point favorite to win this weekend, which they should likely uphold. However, if they play like they did against the Dolphins or Ravens, the AFC North may look a whole lot different come Sunday evening.

Cleveland Browns
Cincinnati Bengals

The Texans haven’t had much good news this season. This weekend, they’ll finally get a bit of positive vibes as their coach, Gary Kubiak, will return to the sideline after suffering a mini-stroke two weeks ago. During his return, Kubiak will hope to end the Texans worst slide in franchise history, and do it without the guys that started this season at quarterback or running back for the Texans. It was announced earlier this week that Arian Foster would miss the rest of the regular season due to back surgery, and Matt Schaub lost his job to Case Keenum nearly four weeks ago. On the defensive end, the Texans also cut veteran safety Ed Reed this week, making things even more slim on both ends of the ball. As for the Raiders, their bright spot for the season has been Terrelle Pryor. Although Pryor hasn’t had quite the success as other AFC West quarterbacks have had, he has looked promising for the future of the Raiders franchise. He can add to that potential with a win over the Texans this weekend. Both teams are out of the playoff hunt and this is a tossup in terms of who’s expected to win.

Oakland Raiders
Houston Texans

Much like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Jacksonville Jaguars enter this weekend with a bit of hope in their eyes. After getting their first win out of the way, the Jags can relax a bit more knowing that each week is just a chance to notch another one in the ‘W’ column. They will certainly have a chance to do just that against the Cardinals. Yes, Arizona has won two in a row and yes, they are technically in the race in one of the best divisions in all of football. However, they still have serious issues with Carson Palmer as the leader on offense and both of those wins I mentioned, came against the lackluster efforts of the Falcons and Texans. The Cardinals are an eight point favorite in this one, which is probably an honest line. But if you like to root for the underdog and want to see a huge upset, look for the Jaguars to get their second win of the season this weekend against the Cardinals, who may be overlook their opponents in excitement for their game next weekend against the much more formidable Colts.

Despite the relative success that the Chargers have had this year, and the complete unraveling that the Dolphins have seen in recent weeks, both teams go into this weekends matchup with 4-5 records. It may be for that reason that the line is 1.5 in favor for San Diego. However, the Dolphins are a much less complete team than they were when they started the season 3-0. They’ve gone 1-5 in their last six games, including giving up the first win of the season to the Buccaneers last weekend. The Chargers on the other hand, still look like a good team, who just has had the ball bounce the wrong way a few times. They had a slow start against the Broncos last weekend, yet they were able to come back in the final half and bring the score within eight-points. It might not be a good idea to be fooled by the spread in this one. The Chargers are the better team going into his game and it’ll be a shock if they don’t get a W on Sunday.

The Seahawks were able to get a big win last weekend against the Atlanta Falcons. And although they went into the game as heavy favorites, the 33-10 win was exactly what the doctor ordered, considering the struggles that they had in the weeks previous in matchups against Tampa Bay and St. Louis. The Seahawks will get another chance this weekend against another two-win team in the Vikings. Sure, the Vikings had a win last weekend against an improved Washington team, but their quarterback carousel is still a major concern. As Christian Ponder was hurt yet again last weekend, the ball will get passed to either Matt Cassel or Josh Freeman for this Sunday. Either way, it may not matter, as neither player has looked particularly good under center.  The Seahawks are 13-point favorites in this one, and they’ll want to get another huge win like that to prove they are the team to beat in the NFC.

Minnesota Vikings
Seattle Seahawks

The NFC showdown between the 49ers and Saints looks to be a good one on Sunday. The 49ers are coming off a loss that they really couldn’t get the ball moving against a tough Carolina defense. And although the Saints are coming off a 49-17 demolishing of Dallas, don’t forget they had trouble with the Jets just two weeks ago. The Seahawks may be looking like the best team in the NFC right now, but the winner of this game will prove that they belong in the same conversation. Another factor to consider is that while the 49ers need a win to keep up with Seattle, the Saints will need to win to keep distance between them and the surging Panthers, who will play on Monday against the Patriots.

The momentum train that full of New York Giant fans couldn’t be more excited to be playing Green Bay, then they likely are with the Packers coming to town this weekend. Coming off three wins in a row, the Giants will now play a Green Bay team who is without Aaron Rodgers. That means prime pickings for the Giants, who are looking to get their fourth win in a row. But more importantly, while their win streak has consisted of games against Minnesota, Philadelphia and Oakland, a win over the 5-4 Packers would be a major boost for moral. The Giants are actually favored to win this one by six, which shows just how many extra factors go into this one. If the Giants win, and a few other things work in their favor, they could play Dallas next weekend with first place in the NFC East up for grabs.

One of the most anticipated games of the weekend will be the matchup between the undefeated Chiefs and the 8-1 Broncos. Arguably two of the top teams in the AFC, also just happen to be in the same conference. And while both teams come in with nearly perfect records, they also both have areas that they’ll need to prove in this matchup. The Chiefs have been winning games at the hands of their defense. Although Alex Smith started off the year hot, he hasn’t been able to string it together in recent weeks in the same way. As for the Broncos, they’ll want to prove that they can put together an entire four quarters worth of play. While many of their games have required heroic fourth-quarter efforts, last weekend they played well in the first half but let things start to slip away in the second. This game has so much up for grabs. Not only will the winner have first place in the division, but they’ll also shoot into the heavy favorite as the AFC top contender. The Broncos are an eight point favorite, so they’ll look to prove that their an overall better team that can put up points against a good defense, and shutdown a lackluster offense.

Kansas City Chiefs
Denver Broncos

Although a few weeks ago the Panthers and Patriots game may not have raised any eyebrows, it is certainly a matchup worth watching on Monday Night Football this week. The Patriots are coming off their bye-week, which was preceeded by a huge 55-31 win over the Patriots. This was the kind of statement win that Tom Brady needed, especially considering the issues he’s had with his receivers all year. At the same time, the Panthers have now reeled off five in a row, and a win on Monday would be extremely impressive. Many people argued that the Panthers wins came against weaker competition, but their defensive shutdown of the 49ers last week proved that they can beat even the top teams as well. While the Panthers have one of the best defenses in the league, they’ll get to prove it in prime time against one of the most prolific offensive tandems of all time, with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. The Panthers host this game, and get the slight one-point favorite. And a win for them, would certainly be a statement that they are not to be taken lightly this year.
