Ravens vs. Cowboys: The Ravens have won 13 in a row at home and should be able to break out of last week’s offensive doldrums against Dallas, especially the way the Cowboys turn over the ball.
Patriots vs. Seahawks: New England’s up-tempo offense is on a roll, and the Patriots will look to use the no-huddle to create defensive mismatches. A shootout won’t suit the Seahawks.
49ers vs. Giants: The 49ers have added some capable receivers, something they sorely lacked
when they lost to the Giants in the NFC championship game. In fact, Mario Manningham was a Giant last season.
Chargers vs. Broncos: Peyton Manning has been on the losing end of five of his last six games against the Chargers. The Chargers won’t flop at home the way they did with their three-point performance vs. the Falcons.
