Dallas Cowboys
7-3
Thursday, Nov. 25

DAL -7

Dallas needs to bounce back after going without a touchdown in Kansas City. The Raiders make for a good pigeon, as they’re completely falling apart.

Pick: Dallas 32, Las Vegas 20

Buffalo Bills
6-4
New Orleans Saints
5-5
Thursday, Nov. 25
8:20 p.m. ET

Buffalo and New Orleans are both struggling mightily, but the Bills still have a top-tier quarterback. The Saints have Trevor Siemian.

Pick: Buffalo 27, New Orleans 17

Matchup
Atlanta Falcons
4-6
Jacksonville Jaguars
2-8
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET

ATL -1

Call the FBI. Call the local police department. Take your TV and throw it into the street. Do it all.

Matchup
Pittsburgh Steelers
5-4-1
Cincinnati Bengals
6-4
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
CBS
CIN -3.5

Huge matchup in the AFC North and playoff picture at large. Cincinnati can really solidify itself with a win, while the Steelers can leapfrog the Bengals with a victory.

Pick: Cincinnati 26, Pittsburgh 23

Matchup
Tennessee Titans
8-3
New England Patriots
7-4
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
CBS
NE -6

Best game of the early slate. New England is playing great defense and running the ball at will, while Mac Jones continues to be efficient. Right now, the Titans are limited offensively. Not good when facing Bill Belichick.

Pick: New England 24, Tennessee 16

Matchup
Carolina Panthers
5-6
Miami Dolphins
4-7
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
FOX
CAR -1

Whoever loses this game is done. Take the more talented team. Also, the Dolphins can’t block, and the Panthers have a terrific pass rush.

Pick: Carolina 23, Miami 17

Matchup
New York Jets
2-8
Houston Texans
2-8
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
CBS
HOU -2.5

Listen, we’re here for you. Don’t do this. It’s not too late to realize this is the worse choice you can make this weekend.

Pick: Houston 28, New York 23

Matchup
Philadelphia Eagles
5-6
New York Giants
3-7
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
FOX
PHI -3

Philadelphia has a real chance to make the playoffs. The Eagles have the Giants twice, Football Team twice, the Jets and host the Cowboys. That could easily be 4-5 wins.

Pick: Philadelphia 30, New York 20

Matchup
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
7-3
Indianapolis Colts
6-5
Sunday, Nov. 28
1 p.m. ET
FOX
TB -2.5

Quietly a very intriguing game. The Bucs are fighting for home-field advantage in the NFC, while the Colts are suddenly peaking after a really rough start to the year.

Pick: Tampa Bay 31, Indianapolis 27
