WINNERS (v. Losers)
CARDINALS (v. 49ers)
RAVENS (v. Browns)
FALCONS (@ Eagles)
CHARGERS (v. Dolphins)
PANTHERS (@ Chiefs)
PATRIOTS (v. Seahawks)
BEARS (@ Buccaneers)
BRONCOS (@ Saints)
TEXANS (@ Jaguars)
COWBOYS (@ Steelers)
REDSKINS (v. Vikings)
GIANTS (v. Bengals)
TITANS (v. Packers)
JETS (v. Rams)
INJURY WATCH:
PACKERS (@ Titans): While Marcus Mariota isn't Andrew Luck, the Titans can still control the tempo with a strong run game.  Aaron Rodgers struggled to get things rolling last week.  Combine that with Clay Matthews injury status (hamstring) and it could be another very long game for a Packers defense depleted at all positions.  Running back James Stark was limited in practice, and could help bolster the Packers' backfield.  Jared Cook was also limited in practice, possibly giving Rodgers another target. 
REDSKINS (v. Vikings): The loss of the Vikings' offensive tackles and guard Alex Boone really showed, as the Vikings struggled to get anything going against the Lions, who have one of the worst defenses in the league.  Combine that with injuries in the secondary, and you have a defense that can't force turnovers or get off the field.  The statuses of offensive linemen and defensive backs should be monitored again this week. 
BRONCOS (@ Saints): The Broncos lost their best run stuffer, Derek Wolfe.  Meanwhile, defensive back Aqib Talib leaves Denver's secondary exposed.  This game could test how elite Brees is as a quarterback, as well as Ingram's ability to keep his starting job. 
JETS (@ Rams): Ryan Fitzpatrick was hobbled by a sprained MCL (knee) in week 9.  Although he was able to return to the game, he is listed as questionable.  Both teams have top run defenses, but very sorry secondaries.  This means the game will be won or lost through the air.  Kenny Britt is not Brandon Marshall, but Rams tight end Lance Kendricks is rapidly emerging.  Kendricks caught 7 passes for 90 yards against the Panthers, and could've had an even bigger day if he didn't drop a pass in the endzone.  If Fitz can go, he has all of the targets to throw to.  If he can't, then the Rams will rule the day.
PANTHERS (@ Chiefs): One of the NFL's top defenses travels to Arrowhead this week.  If Smith takes the snaps and Maclin can get on the field opposite Kelce, this matchup could expose the Panthers' secondary and make this a much closer game.  Kansas City could also get Spencer Ware and linebacker Justin Houston back this week.  Houston help the Chiefs stuff the run and and contain Cam.  Otherwise, the Chiefs could get steamrolled. 
CLOSE CALLS
WINNER: Dallas Cowboys
While the Steelers will be without Maurkice Pouncey, the Cowboys' defense is just good enough.  Just.  While Dallas' ground game should dominate time of possession, Big Ben, Brown, and Bell could make this close if they can strike quickly, early, and often.  Ladarius Green could make his Steelers debut providing a much-needed x-factor.  Sophomore linebacker Bud Dupree could also come back from IR this week to help stop Zeke. 
WINNER: Atlanta Falcons
Both teams square off in what could be a high-flying shootout in Philly this week with the Eagles' Zach Ertz and Jordan Matthews finally coming online.  If Carson Wentz can get out of his slump and deliver strikes to his receiving targets, the Dirty Birds stand a real chance against the Falcons' 31st-ranked pass defense. 
TRAP GAME (Potential Upset)
WINNER: New England Patriots
Offense wins games, but defense wins championships.  That said, we know Brady can pick apart the Legion of Boom.  The key matchup here is New England's defense vs. Seattle's schoolyard offense.  Russell Wilson's ability to keep plays alive and pull off big plays could be put to the test this week.  He threw 2 touchdowns against Buffalo ending a 3-week scoring drought.  The Seahawks' fate hinges on Wilson's production.  If Russell Wilson is contained, the Pats prevail.
