A series of colossal division matchups make week 14 of the NFL season a must-watch. How will each game play out?
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars
This game may just set the record for lowest ratings in Thursday Night Football history. In either case, the Houston Texans are more talented, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have won two-straight.
Result: HOU 21, JAC 14
Minnesota Vikings at Baltimore Ravens
Luck characterized their win last week, but the Minnesota Vikings won’t find any of it in a stadium where the Baltimore Ravens have lost only once in 2013.
Result: MIN 17, BAL 30
Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals
This looks like a really bad matchup for the Indianapolis Colts, who struggle against teams with good pass rushes. The Cincinnati Bengals cannot afford to turn the ball over.
Result: IND 21, CIN 27
Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers
If Aaron Rodgers plays, this game will get ugly in a hurt. The Green Bay Packers are all but out of the playoffs, and could take out their frustrations on a bad Atlanta Falcons team.
Result: ATL 23, GB 34
Cleveland Browns at New England Patriots
Tom Brady excels against the style of defense the Cleveland Browns play and his New England Patriots offense is humming since getting Rob Gronkowski back.
Result: CLE 10, NE 42
Oakland Raiders at New York Jets
Matt McGloin has played well for the Oakland Raiders. Geno Smith has not for the New York Jets. Rex Ryan will need his defense and home crowd to carry the day.
Result: OAK 16, NYJ 20
Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles
Two red hot teams meeting in a very important game. The Detroit Lions are not good on the road while the Philadelphia Eagles will have classic winter weather on their side.
Result: DET 21, PHI 28
Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers
Teams with eerily similar problems centered around the offensive line. It will come down to whether the Miami Dolphins or Pittsburgh Steelers cover it up better.
Result: MIA 17, PIT 24
Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The maddening inconsistency continues for the Buffalo Bills as they visit a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that, like them, is talented but still young and growing.
Result: BUF 27, TB 28
Kansas City Chiefs at Washington Redskins
Neither team can seem to figure out their problems. The Kansas City Chiefs have more at stake though. Expect them to get back on the winning track against a bad Washington Redskins team.
Result: KC 26, WAS 13
Tennessee Titans at Denver Broncos
Their unfortunate loss in Indianapolis gave the Tennessee Titans little optimism for their visit to the Denver Broncos, who will be heavily focused on getting home field advantage for the playoffs.
Result: TEN 24, DEN 35
St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals
When in doubt, go with the healthier team. The Arizona Cardinals are back home in a must-win game and are perfectly built to stop what the St. Louis Rams do best.
Result: STL 20, ARI 24
New York Giants at San Diego Chargers
The What-Might-Have-Been bowl between Eli Manning and Philip Rivers. Neither the San Diego Chargers or New York Giants have much to play for, but it still could be an entertaining game.
Result: NYG 23, SD 31
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
Ground zero. The Seattle Seahawks have a stranglehold on the NFC West but the San Francisco 49ers are getting healthy and are out to prove things will be different come NFL playoff time.
Result: SEA 17, SF 20
Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints
Result: CAR 27, NO 20
Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears
A must-win game for both teams but especially the 6-6 Chicago Bears. They could have Jay Cutler back and the Dallas Cowboys in a freezing cold Soldier Field.
Result: DAL 24, CHI 27
