Last week vs. the spread: 11-4-1 | Sea­son: 111-92-5 Pa­tri­ots (10-3) at Ben­gals (1-12) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Pa­tri­ots by 10| O/U 411⁄2

It seems ev­ery time the Pa­tri­ots face a de­cent op­po­nent, they strug­gle. The one-win Ben­gals aren’t as hor­ri­ble as their record sug­gests. Pa­tri­ots 27, Ben­gals 21

Bron­cos (5-8) at Chiefs (9-4) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Chiefs by 10 | O/U 45

Vic Fan­gio has a tough de­fense, and Drew Lock is look­ing le­git. Still, the Chiefs get the edge. Chiefs 28, Bron­cos 23

Dol­phins (3-10) at Gi­ants (2-11) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Gi­ants by 3 | O/U 46

The Dol­phins are­play­ing hard for Brian Flores. Do the Gi­ants feel the same with Pat Shur­mur? Dol­phins 27, Gi­ants 20

Tex­ans (8-5) at Titans (8-5) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Titans by 3 | O/U 51

Ryan Tan­nehill is 6-1 as the starter for the Titans, and Der­rick Henry is a dif­fer­ence maker. Titans 24, Tex­ans 20

Sea­hawks (10-3) at Pan­thers (5-8) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Sea­hawks by 6 | O/U 491⁄2

The Sea­hawks are com­ing off a spirit-crush­ing loss and they’re hun­gry to stay in the NFC West race with the first-place 49ers.

Sea­hawks 31, Pan­thers 20

Buc­ca­neers (6-7) at Lions (3-9-1) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Bucs by 51⁄2 | O/U 451⁄2

The Lions are go­ing to try to es­tab­lish the run, but they aren’t go­ing to be able to move it far on the ground against the Bucs de­fense. Buc­ca­neers 28, Lions 17

Bears (7-6) at Pack­ers (10-3) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Pack­ers by 41⁄2 | O/U 401⁄2

The Pack­ers are liv­ing off a de­fen­sive name they earned early in the sea­son, but they’re beat­able. Mitch Tru­bisky has bounced back of late. Pack­ers 24, Bears 20

Ea­gles (6-7) at Red­skins (3-10) 1 p.m. Sun­day | Ea­gles by 6 | O/U 39

Even though the hap­less Red­skins are still try­ing for Bill Cal­la­han, the Ea­gles’ Car­son Wentz should be able to lead his team to a road win. Ea­gles 27, Red­skins 17

Vikings (9-4) at Charg­ers (5-8) 4:05 p.m. Sun­day | Vikings by 1 | O/U 45

Hard to know which Charg­ers team you’ll get from week to week. They’ve got con­fi­dence af­ter stomp­ing the Jags. The Vikings are too good. Vikings 27, Charg­ers 23

Browns (6-7) at Car­di­nals (3-9-1) 4:05 p.m. Sun­day | Browns by 3 | O/U 49

The Car­di­nals can’t stop any­one from throw­ing, so this could be a big day for Baker May­field. Kyler Mur­ray has taken steps back­ward. Browns 31, Car­di­nals 20

Jaguars (4-9) at Raiders (6-7) 4:05 p.m. Sun­day | Raiders by 61⁄2 | O/U 47

The Jags have lost five in a row, all blowouts. The Raiders are play­ing their last game in Oak­land, so they’ll get their act to­gether for a fi­nal farewell. Raiders 27, Jaguars 21

Rams (8-5) at Cow­boys (6-7) 4:25 p.m. Sun­day | Rams by 1 | O/U 481⁄2

Give Jared Goff time and he will pick you apart. The O-line is pro­vid­ing time, and Todd Gur­ley looks good. The Cow­boys have lost four of five. Rams 34, Cow­boys 23

Fal­cons (4-9) at 49ers (11-2) 4:25 p.m. Sun­day | 49ers by 11 | O/U 481⁄2

Bills (9-4) at Steelers (8-5) 8:20 p.m. Sun­day | Steelers by 1 | O/U 37

Hard to bet against the Steelers in prime-time games, es­pe­cially in Pitts­burgh.

Steelers 23, Bills 18

Colts (6-7) at Saints (10-3) 8:15 p.m. Mon­day | Saints by 9 | O/U 461⁄2

The Colts are head­ing in the right di­rec­tion in the long term, but they’re banged up. The Saints will bounce back from a loss to the 49ers. Saints 34, Colts 23
