Matchup
New England Patriots
6-6
Los Angeles Rams
8-4
Thursday, Dec. 10
8:20 p.m. ET
FOX
LAR -6

Expect a ton of defense. The Rams are suffocating, but the Patriots know how to give Jared Goff problems. The difference is in the quarterback play. While Goff is erratic under pressure, Cam Newton has done little all year long.

Pick: Los Angeles 19, New England 11

Matchup
Arizona Cardinals
6-6
New York Giants
5-7
Sunday, Dec. 13
1 p.m. ET
FOX
AZ -2.5

The Giants have won four straight largely because the defense has been terrific. If not for the Hail Murray, the Cardinals would be losers of five straight. Take the hot teammate home that doesn’t have to travel across the country.

Pick: New York 27, Arizona 24

Matchup
Dallas Cowboys
3-9
Cincinnati Bengals
2-9-1
Sunday, Dec. 13
1 p.m. ET
FOX
DAL -3.5

Hard to take Brandon Allen and a bad Bengals defense in any game. They simply don’t have enough to beat more squads, including a lousy Dallas team.

Pick: Dallas 20, Cincinnati 17

Matchup
Denver Broncos
4-8
Carolina Panthers
4-8
Sunday, Dec. 13
1 p.m. ET
CBS
CAR -3.5

The Panthers have some COVID issues but are coming off their bye. Carolina has played tough all year, and the difference between Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock is enough to earn a fifth win here.

Pick: Carolina 26, Denver 22
