Article excerpt

LAST WEEK: 9-6 (.600) * SEASON: 56-35 (.615)

Atlanta Falcons (2-4) at Baltimore Ravens (4-2): 1 p.m. ... The Ravens scored as many touchdowns in the first 16 minutes in Tampa Bay (5) as the Steelers have scored in the past 12 quarters. The Falcons, who have lost three in a row, should beware of quick strikes.

Prediction: Ravens, 30-20

Cincinnati Bengals (3-1-1) at Indianapolis Colts (4-2): 1 p.m. ... The Colts are on a roll after their 0-2 start, having won four in a row. The Bengals haven't won in two games and, after allowing just 33 points in the first three games, have allowed 80 in the past two.

Prediction: Colts, 34-31

Cleveland Browns (3-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6): 1 p.m. ... The Browns believe they are for real after their convincing victory against the Steelers. The Jaguars believe they are getting closer to winning after losing by eight to the Steelers and two to the Titans. Uh oh.

Prediction: Jaguars, 20-17

Minnesota Vikings (2-4) at Buffalo Bills (3-3): 1 p.m. ... Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater was sacked eight times and managed just three points against the Lions. Now he makes his first road start in Buffalo, where the Bills are scoring points with Kyle Orton.

Prediction: Bills, 24-23

Miami Dolphins (2-3) at Chicago Bears (3-3): 1 p.m. ... The Bears are one of five teams at 3-3, but at times they look much better than that. One of those moments was last week in Atlanta. The Dolphins would be feeling a whole lot better if they held on to beat Green Bay.

Prediction: Bears, 30-24

New Orleans Saints (2-3) at Detroit Lions (4-2): 1 p.m. ... The Saints are hoping the off week will help them regroup from their sluggish start. And that Drew Brees is 4-0 lifetime against the Lions. However, they haven't won a road game in three tries this season.

Prediction: Saints, 24-23

Carolina Panthers (3-2-1) at Green Bay Packers (4-2): 1 p.m. ... Aaron Rodgers leads all quarterbacks with a 111.4 rating and 15 touchdown passes. That can't be good news for a Carolina secondary that has allowed 113 points in three games (vs. Steelers, Ravens, Bengals).

Prediction: Packers, 34-24

Seattle Seahawks (3-2) at St. …
