San Francisco vs. New England
When the San Francisco 49ers take on the New England Patriots this weekend they will have their work cut out for them. New England is virtually unbeatable at home in December and a first round playoff bye is still up for grabs. Tom Brady is looking like a surgeon on the field right now and even without the Gronk the Patriots offense is putting up sick numbers. If (when) the 49ers lose this game it won't get any easier for them when they head to Seattle the following week. I see the division title slipping away.
Denver vs. Baltimore
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos head to Baltimore this weekend and face a Ravens team in disarray. The Raven fired their offensive coordinator a few days ago and must come up with a game plan that keeps the Broncos off the field. That's easier said than done this year. Denver has the #4 rated offense and Peyton Manning is a front runner for MVP of the league. I think he might get his 5th this year.
New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
The New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are all but out of the playoff race, but this game is still meaningful. For those of you (like me) that are in the playoffs in fantasy football Doug Martin and Drew Brees need to have big games. I'll be honest, I don't really care who wins this contest so long as the Breesy throws a ton of touchdowns and Doug Martin runs all over the place. The Saints should win a close one though.
