KRYK PICK:

Mi­ami

Brock Osweiler started play­ing a lot like Brock Osweiler in that loss at Hous­ton a week ago Thurs­day. Still, the Dol­phins’ temp QB is mak­ing more good plays than at pre­vi­ous stops. That’ll be enough vs. Jets.

Min­nesota

KRYK PICK: The Lions nor­mally play well against the Vik­ings. And the Vik­ings aren’t play­ing well at home this year — with losses to Buf­falo and New Or­leans, and meh wins vs. San Fran and Ari­zona. But ex­pect a big W this time. No one’s talk­ing about the Red­skins and their first 5-2 start in 10 years. At­lanta’s de­fence can’t stop much of any­thing, pass or run, while the Red­skins de­fence is le­git. Hail to the Red­skins, again.

Den­ver

KRYK PICK: The Bron­cos have been more com­pet­i­tive than their 3-5 record sug­gests — with a pair of close losses to KC and an­other to the Rams. The Tex­ans have won five in a row, but Den­ver takes this one.

Los An­ge­les

KRYK PICK: Both teams com­ing off byes. The Charg­ers of­fence is hum­ming, and although Seat­tle’s un­sung, no-name de­fence has im­pressed so far, it won’t be able to stop Phil Rivers and Co.

New Or­leans

KRYK PICK: The two teams with the best records in the NFC — the 8-0 Rams and 6-1 Saints. The only team to beat New Or­leans this year needed to score 48 points to do it (Tampa Bay). LA could do that, but won’t.

New Eng­land

KRYK PICK: A cou­ple of de­cent passers you might have heard of square off in this one. The Pack­ers just traded away a good start­ing safety in Ha Ha Clin­ton-Dix, to Wash­ing­ton. Think Tom Brady doesn’t know it?

Dal­las

KRYK PICK: Both teams are com­ing off byes. Anx­ious to see how newly ac­quired WR Amari Cooper fares in his first game as a Cow­boy, against a tough Ti­tans de­fence. The Dal­las D is bet­ter, though.
