Sunday early games

Dallas Cowboys at Washington Football Team, 11 a.m., Fox

Washington has won four straight games to pull to 6-6. It would make things very interesting in the NFC East with a win over the 8-4 Cowboys.

Prediction: Washington 21, Cowboys 17

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans, 11 a.m., CBS

The Titans haven't looked very impressive as of late, but the Jaguars offer them a perfect chance to get back on track.

Prediction: Titans 20, Jaguars 10

Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans, 11 a.m., Fox

The Seahawks are not out of the NFC playoff race yet and a win over the Texans would further help their cause.

Prediction: Seahawks 28, Texans 17

Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs, 11 a.m., CBS

The Raiders really needed to beat Washington heading into their showdown against the Chiefs. We don't see them winning in Kansas City.

Prediction: Chiefs 31, Raiders 24

New Orleans Saints at New York Jets, 11 a.m., CBS

The Saints really need to win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. They should beat the Jets.

Prediction: Saints 17, Jets 14

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers, 11 a.m., Fox

The Panthers have had a week off to get ready for this one. We like their chances at home.

Prediction: Panthers 24, Falcons 21

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns, 11 a.m., CBS

The Ravens' offense should not be struggling like it is. The struggles will continue for Baltimore in Cleveland.

Prediction: Browns 28, Ravens 20

Sunday late games

New York Giants at Los Angeles Chargers, 2:05 p.m., Fox

The Chargers are the better team and play at home. Those are reasons enough for us to pick them to beat the Giants.

Prediction: Chargers 31, Giants 17

Detroit Lions at Denver Broncos, 2:05 p.m.. Fox

Can the Lions win two in a row? Sure, they could. We're not counting on them winning in Denver, however.

Prediction: Broncos 20, Lions 17

San Francisco 49ers at Cincinnati Bengals, 2:25 p.m., CBS

Disappointing losses in Week 13 really hurt both of these team's playoff chances. We've got to go with the home team to get back on track here.

Prediction: Bengals 24, 49ers 21

Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 2:25 p.m., CBS

Which Bills team will show up for this game? That will make all the difference in this game being close or a blowout. We think the Buccaneers will win either way.

Prediction: Buccaneers 35, Bills 27

The Cardinals' Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins got to work out the rust in Week 13. The Rams destroyed the Jaguars. Get your popcorn ready for this one.
