Out with the old and in with the new. It is a new week in the NFL, and like the past couple of weeks, it is time to examine the games and make some picks. So, let’s get to it.

Indianapolis Colts vs Tennessee Titans (Colts -1)

The Tennessee Titans are hosting the Colts, and after picking up a win over the Carolina Panthers (a team with only one win this season), they face a 6-5 team in the Colts. The Colts are on a three-game winning streak. Those three games were against opponents under .500. The Colts will most likely extend their streak.

Prediction: Colts win

Atlanta Falcons vs New York Jets (Falcons -2)

The Falcons are on top of the NFC South with a record of 5-6. They beat the New Orleans Saints in their last game, and now gear up for a game with the 4-7 New York Jets. The Jets are on a four-game losing streak and despite a fair chance of snapping their streak, the Falcons should take this game.

Prediction: Falcons win

Detroit Lions vs New Orleans Saints (Lions -4)

The Detroit Lions may have lost their last game, but they are still doing well this season. Coming into this matchup with a record of 8-3, they are on top of the NFC North. The Saints are on a two-game losing streak and getting a win over Detroit may not be easy. The Lions should get the victory.

Prediction: Lions win

Denver Broncos vs Houston Texans (Broncos +3)

The Denver Broncos are still on a roll. They beat the Cleveland Browns in their last game, and have extended their winning streak to five. The Broncos were solid overall (offensively and defensively) against the Browns and this week they play a solid Houston Texans. The Texans lost to the Jaguars in a close game but have a chance to bounce back. Can the Broncos keep their streak alive? Or will the Texans put an end to it. The Broncos should get it but anything can happen.

Prediction: Broncos win

Los Angeles Chargers vs New England Patriots (Chargers -5.5)

The Los Angeles Chargers are on a three-game losing streak but have a chance to end with a win over the New England Patriots. The Patriots are 2-9 and are on a four game losing streak. Both teams are struggling and this game could come down to who wants it more.

Prediction: Chargers win

Arizona Cardinals vs Pittsburgh Steelers (Steelers -6.5)

The Arizona Cardinals are 2-10 and on a two-game losing streak. The Steelers won their last game over a division rival. They beat the Cincinnati Bengals 16-10. The Steelers should get this win.

Prediction: Steelers win

Miami Dolphins vs Washington Commanders (Dolphins -9.5)

The Miami Dolphins are 8-3 sitting on top of the AFC East. Since their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Dolphins have been the Las Vegas Raiders and the New York Jets. The Washington Commanders last played on Nov. 23 when they lost big to the Dallas Cowboys. The 4-8 team is on a three-game losing streak, and beating Miami will not be easy.

Prediction: Dolphins win

Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Buccaneers -3.5)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a two-game losing streak. Their last loss was against the Colts. The Panthers are on a losing streak and are struggling this season. If the Buccaneers want to pick up a win, now is the time to do it.

Prediction: Buccaneers win

San Francisco 49ers vs Philadelphia Eagles (Eagles +3)

The San Francisco 49ers have a tough task ahead of them. The 49ers are 8-3 and on a three-game winning streak, but face the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are on a five-game winning streak, and their streak was nearly snapped in their last game, as they beat the Buffalo Bills 37-34 in OT. This could be a good game and the Eagles could come away with it.

Prediction: Eagles win

Cleveland Browns vs Los Angeles Rams (Rams -4)

The Cleveland Browns had a tough game against the Broncos, but are looking to recover. The Browns have had their share of quarterback troubles (and injuries) and this week, Joe Flacco will be starting as rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson is out. The Rams are on a two-game winning streak and would love to get a win over the Browns. It just might happen.

Prediction: Rams get the win

Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers (Chiefs -6)

The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the win column. They beat the Raiders after a loss to the Eagles. They can get things rolling again with a win over Green Bay. The Packers are on a two-game winning streak and are one game below .500. A win over Kansas City would be impressive but the Chiefs should take it.

Prediction: Chiefs take it

Cincinnati Bengals vs Jacksonville Jaguars (Jaguars -9.5)

The Cincinnati Bengals are trying to get back on track. They are on a losing streak and of course, are playing without Joe Burrow. The Jacksonville Jaguars are on top of their division and are on a winning streak. There is a good chance they will keep that going.

Prediction: Jacksonville takes it
