The spreads and projections are listed below the chat window.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (-7)—Losing Julio Jones means the 1-4 Falcons are done for the year. As for the winless Bucs, Greg Schiano has threatened to bring back the orange creamsicle pants and winking pirate if they don’t get a win soon. The late John McKay should be asked in heaven what he thinks about the 2013 Bucs execution. Falcons cover 

St. Louis Rams at Carolina Panthers (-6)—Both of these teams won big on the road last week as they attempt to win just enough games to get an inferior draft pick while the teams they defeated stock up big. Panthers win but fail to cover

Cincinnati Bengals at Detroit Lions (-3)—The cats in Detroit are roaring while their feline counterparts in Ohio were briefly emasculated by making a Katy Perry song their theme music. The team has since apologized for that mistake as well as for the entire 1990s. Lions cover

San Diego Chargers (-7.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars—Jacksonville showed signs of life against Denver, but time will tell if that was a trend or an aberration. When losing by 16 is a moral victory, go with the aberration theory. Chargers cover

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (-8.5)—Buffalo is fighting hard, but without EJ Manuel they are in serious trouble. As for Miami, they can beat inferior teams and lose to superior ones. That is what average teams do, and Miami at home is average enough to win this one. Dolphins win but fail to cover

New England Patriots (-4) at New York Jets—If the Jets win this game, Rex Ryan may never get fired. Look for the New York media to quietly be rooting for New England. Tom Brady publicly hates the Jets, but he may be rooting for the Jets to win so Rex Ryan stays. After all, the difference between winning a division by five games or six games is pretty meaningless. Patriots cover

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-3) —The battle to be the beast in the NFC Least comes down to Tony Romo and Nick Foles. It’s enough to make Tom Landry fold his arms in heaven and make Dick Vermeil cry down here. Upset special, Cowboys win outright

Chicago Bears at Washington Redskins (-1)—In 1940 these teams played in the NFL Championship where the Bears won 73-0. Such is the desperation in trying to find a compelling storyline in a game that has none. Rumors that the Bears should change their name due to protests from animal rights activists have not been confirmed. Redskins cover
