Minnesota Vikings (6-2) at Oakland Raiders (4-4)

Sunday 11/15 at 4:05PM EST

The Vikings have benefited from one of the easiest schedules of any team in the NFL, and I think they’re about to get exposed in a big way. Yes, I thought that the Rams would beat the Vikings last week, but I’m doubling down and taking Oakland this week. Derek Carr and Amari Cooper have been sensational this season, and Oakland’s defense has been very good against the run. The Raiders match up well in this game and could come out on top.

10. 60. 13. 28. Final

New England Patriots (8-0) at New York Giants (5-4)

Sunday 11/15 at 4:25PM EST

Tom Brady. Bill Belichick. Rob Gronkowski. Need I say more? The Patriots have the talent in personnel, coaching and staff to go 16-0 for the second time in team history before another NFL team even goes 16-0 a single time! Hoping for a 16-0 record is just wishful thinking at this point of the season, but the point I’m making is that New England should easily win this game. I see the Pats dropping a 40-burger on the Giants’ atrocious defense.

42. 47. Final. 13. 31

Kansas City Chiefs (3-5) at Denver Broncos (7-1)

Sunday 11/15 at 4:25PM EST

The Kansas City Chiefs were insanely close to upsetting the Denver Broncos earlier this season, and they should’ve won the game. But that was before a laundry list of injuries wiped out a significant portion of the Chiefs’ roster. Even without Aqib Talib, Denver should be able to take care of business on Sunday. Who would Talib guard anyway? The Chiefs’ wide receivers hardly ever see the end zone.

124. 20. 45. Final. 16

Arizona Cardinals (6-2) at Seattle Seahawks (4-4)

Sunday 11/15 at 8:30PM EST

This game is easily the matchup of the week. An NFC West showdown in Seattle between two great teams? It doesn’t get much better than this. As for the winner in this one, I’m taking the Seahawks. The Cardinals are the better team, and they did manage to beat the Seahawks in Seattle two years ago–but that victory was Arizona’s only win against Seattle in the two teams’ past four matchups. Marshawn Lynch should see a ton of carries in this one, and he alone has the potential to lift Seattle to victory.

36. Final. 17. 32. 21

Next: Cincinnati Bengals: Is 16-0 Possible?

Houston Texans (3-5) at Cincinnati Bengals (8-0)

Monday 11/16 at 8:30PM EST

By Monday night, the Bengals will have had 10 days off since last Thursday’s dismantling of the Cleveland Browns. And while Andy Dalton and co. could come out the gate slow, this Texans team poses little to no threat to Cincinnati. The Bengals’ defense is disruptive, and Cincinnati’s offense is one of the league’s best. The Bengals should knock out the Texans on Monday night, just like they’ve done to so many other teams this season.

6. 10. 24. 56. Final
