The Cincinnati Bengals at the Philadelphia Eagles
The Bengals are 7-6 and are trying to keep up with the Steelers in contention for a wildcard spot in the AFC. They lost last week to the Cowboys 20-19. Their offense has managed 24.7 points per game and their defense has given up 21.5. The Eagles have struggled this year and are 4-9 on the season. They won last week over Tampa Bay 23-21. Their offense has been on vacation scoring only 18.5 points per game. Their defense is just as bad and has given up 26.2. The Bengals are favored by 4 in this one. I like the Bengals here too by 7.

The New York Giants at the Altanta Falcons
The Giants are 8-5 and lead the NFC East by a game. They destroyed the Saints last week 52-27. The Giants have put up 28.7 points per game, which ranks them 3rd in the NFL. Their defense has given up 20.8, which ranks them at 8th. The Falcons are 11-2 and have clinched the NFC South. They lost last week to the Panthers 30-20. Their offense has scored 25.9 points per game and their defense has allowed 19.9, which is ranked 5th in the league. The Falcons are favored by 1 but they have not showed me anything as of late. I like the Giants by 3.
The Pittsburgh Steelers at the Dallas Cowboys
The Steelers are 7-6 on the season and fell last week to the Chargers 34-24. Their offense has put up 21.4 points per game and thier defense has allowed 20.3. Their defense is #1 in the NFL. The Steelers hope that Big Ben's second week back from a rib injury will prove fruitful in this must win game in Texas. The Cowboys are 7-6 as well and tied with the Redskins for 2nd place in the NFC East. This is a must win for the Cowboys as well who beat the Bengals last week 20-19. The Cowboys offense has put up 23.1 points per game and their defense has allowed 24.2. The Steelers are favored by 2 and I like them to win this one by 3.
