Bryan Zarpentine: Atlanta 23, Seattle 14 – The Seahawks are due for a loss after the last two weeks. Matt Ryan will do just enough to lift the Falcons to victory.

Bryan Zarpentine: Chicago 34, Detroit 28 – The Bears are riding high after their Monday night win, and with Jay Cutler’s return, they pull out a close win in the 4th quarter.
Cole Stevenson: Detroit 31, Chicago 27
Bryan Zarpentine: Cincinnati 31, Baltimore 13 – Things get even worse for the Ravens, who simply can’t slow down the Cincinnati offense.
Cole Stevenson: Cincinnati 28, Baltimore 17
Bryan Zarpentine: Philadelphia 27, Green Bay 16 – Nick Foles doesn’t throw seven touchdowns the way he did last week, but he can certainly out-duel Seneca Wallace.

Bryan Zarpentine: New York Giants 17, Oakland 10 – Baby steps for the Giants, who win ugly, but do find a way to win their third in a row.
Cole Stevenson: Giants 23, Oakland 17
Bryan Zarpentine: San Francisco 21, Carolina 16 – Cam Newton can’t quite get the job done in the red zone, and the Panthers have to settle for too many field goals to knock off the 49ers.

Bryan Zarpentine: Denver 42, San Diego 24 – Nothing can slow down Peyton Manning, and Phillip Rivers can’t quite keep up.
Cole Stevenson: Denver 38, San Diego 28

Bryan Zarpentine: New Orleans 38, Dallas 31 – Tony Romo does well to keep up with Drew Brees, until a typical Romo mistake in the 4th quarter proves costly for the Cowboys.

Bryan Zarpentine: Tampa Bay 17, Miami 13 – It has to happen sometime, and the Bucs defense proves disruptive for a distracted Miami team, which is enough to give Tampa the win.
