Washington Redskins (4-5) at Carolina Panthers (9-0)

Sunday 11/22 at 1:00PM EST

I really, really really want to pick the Redskins in this game, but I just can’t do it. Cam Newton and company come together to make the Carolina Panthers a legitimate title contender, and I simply can’t pick the Panthers to lose until they lose at least one game. Maybe that game is this week, but I’m going to roll with Carolina, especially since this is a home game. Don’t sleep on Washington, though–the Redskins are better than people think.

St. Louis Rams (4-5) at Baltimore Ravens (2-7)

Sunday 11/22 at 1:00PM EST

The Rams have a new starting quarterback, and his name is Case Keenum. Whether this could prevent the Rams from competing for a playoff spot or boost St. Louis’ chances is a mystery, but the quarterback switch will likely provide a benefit on Sunday. The Ravens are playing bad football, and with little tape to study to prepare for Keenum, Baltimore’s defense will be in for a long day.

10. 26. 20. 51. Final

Dallas Cowboys (2-7) at Miami Dolphins (4-5)

Sunday 11/22 at 1:00PM EST

While it seems like the Dolphins are still in the playoff hunt, in all reality, it would take a miracle for either of these two teams to make the playoffs. While Tony Romo could make his return this Sunday, I still see the Dolphins winning this game. Home-field advantage and momentum could both play big factors in this game, and unless the Cowboys are able to work a miracle, the Dolphins should come out victorious on Sunday. Reshad Jones has been a huge under-the-radar star for Miami this year; he could pick off a pass or two this Sunday.

59. Final. 7. 123. 21

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-5)

Sunday 11/22 at 1:00PM EST

Before the season, football heads were singing the Eagles’ praise, claiming that Philly would be a serious Super Bowl contender. On the other hand, I don’t think even the biggest optimist could’ve seen the Buccaneers jumping out to a 4-5 start behind a rookie quarterback. This season has been a success for the Bucs already, but with more to play for, the Eagles should come out on top. If Mark Sanchez can’t lead his team to victory on Sunday, the Eagles’ season will be in serious trouble.

54. Final. 14. 48. 17
