Pittsburgh Steelers (4-5) at Cleveland Browns (0-10)

Pittsburgh started out 4-1 before hitting a four-game losing streak. Lucky for them, they visit division foe Cleveland who is stretching for the #1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft with a 1-win San Francisco 49ers team close in tow.

Baltimore Ravens (5-4) at Dallas Cowboys (8-1)

I don’t know what’s worse. The national media fawning over the Dallas Cowboys or the fact that they’re doing so behind QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott instead of throwing the love at the Cowboys’ offensive line.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7) at Detroit Lions (5-4)

Detroit holds claim to the top spot in the NFC North with their Week 10 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Holding home serve today against a sloppy Jags squad would keep the Lions atop the Division heading into a crucial Week 12 replay against the Vikings in Detroit.

Tennessee Titans (5-5) at Indianapolis Colts (4-5)

Titans QB Marcus Mariota is playing really well right now, but Colts QB Andrew Luck is no slouch. This should be a very entertaining AFC South clash. Four weeks ago, this matchup tilted to the Colts, 36-24, in Nashville. Can Luck go 2-0 against Mariota in 2016?

Buffalo Bills (4-5) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-5-1)

The loser of this one is going to feel the heat as a six-loss side heading into Week 12.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (7-2)

If Alex Smith & Co. hold at home today, it’s time to start looking at the Chiefs’ postseason readiness.

Chicago Bears (2-7) at New York Giants (6-3)

The Giants are quietly putting together a solid run behind the headlines dominated by their NFC East rival Cowboys.

Arizona Cardinals (4-4-1) at Minnesota Vikings (5-4)

Minnesota started off 5-0 before rolling into their current four-game losing streak. With the NFL’s worst offense in yards per game, it’s hard to think QB Sam Bradford is going to be what stops this slide. With the Cardinals 3-1-1 in their last five, this is a huge game for the NFC Playoff picture.
