Tennessee Titans (-2) @ Miami Dolphins
The 4-4 Dolphins are 0-3 at home while the Titans are 3-1 on the road. The Titans are 3-1 in their last four games although their last contest involved a loss in San Diego. The Dolphins are starting Chad Pennington who has not started a game since week 3 of 2009 due to Henne’s recent struggles. All signs point to a solid win by the Titans.
Prediction: 24-14, Titans
Kansas City Chiefs (-1) @ Denver Broncos
The 2-6 Denver Broncos have lost their last 4 games in a row including an 8 point loss to San Francisco. The Chiefs are 5-3 and first in rushing while the Broncos are 31st in rushing defense. Although the Chiefs are not a power in the AFC, they are a solid team with a great rushing attack going against a poor team with one of the worst rush defenses in the league.
Prediction: 28-14, Chiefs
St. Louis Rams (+6) @ San Francisco 49ers
The 4-4 Rams have been anything but a good road team, but going against San Francisco should change that. The 2-6 49ers have won 2 of their last three games but I don’t see this matchup going their way. The Rams defense has stepped up this season and will not allow the 49ers, who are the third lowest scoring team in the NFC, put up a lot of points.
Prediction: 21-10, Rams
Philadelphia Eagles (-3) @ Washington Redskins
Philly has won three out of four including a win last week against the Indianapolis Colts. The Eagles are 10th in passing yards and 5th in rushing yards. The Redskins are 31st in passing defense and 18th in rushing defense. The Redskins last game was a loss against the Lions and now there are questions surrounding their quarterback situation. Everything is primed for a beating and I think the Eagles are going to rub it in against the Redskins.
Prediction: 35-14, Eagles
