The first lock of the week is the (7-4) Eagles over the (5-6) Texans at home. The Texans secondary is horrible and Vick is throwing the ball the best he ever has. I don't see the Eagles having too many problems Thursday night with the Texans. Look for the Eagles to win 31-20.
The second lock of the week the (9-2) Falcons on the road over the (7-4) Buccaneers. The Bucs have had a great season but the Falcons are way too strong. It will be a low scoring affair but Matty Ice and Co. will walk out of Tampa with a 20 - 16 win.
In a Sunday night showdown the (8-3) Steelers take on the (8-3) Ravens on the road. The Ravens won the first in Steel town but Big Ben was missing. He is now walking with a boot on but should be ready to play Sunday night. With Roethlisberger in the pocket the Steelers will take one from the Ravens on the road. Steelers win 16 - 13.
The second shock is the (9-2) Jets over the (9-2) Patriots on the road. Rex Ryan says his team was built to beat the Pats and I'm going to believe him based on their track record. Also, I have to respect him for comparing himself to Brady. To the game, the Jets win a squeaker over the Pats with Revis coming up with a key interception in the last two minutes to preserve the win. Jets win 27-24.
Peyton Hillis will cross the 1,000 yard mark on the season and will get 125 yards against the Dolphins. The Dolphins will limit him to one score, but the former Razorback will help the Browns take down the fish.
The second jock is Drew Brees. SI's Sportsman of the Year gets the chance to go against the horrible Bengals. Brees will add another 300 yards to his stat sheet and throw at least 2 touchdowns.
Listen live Tuesday night as Chris & Matt discuss the week that was in the NFL.
