Relax Redskins Fans, Zorn Is Almost Gone

Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills

The Colts are playing it safe heading into the playoffs, but they need to try to get a little work in on a Buffalo team looking to head home at the final gun.

Colts 27 Bills 13

New York Giants @ Minnesota Vikings

The Giants are embarrassed right now, so they either show pride or get ready for an offseason of hell in the Big Apple. The Vikings are flat, and are getting pushed around in the trenches. I expect the Giants to win here.

Giants 31 Vikings 23

Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Both teams have their vacation plans set as soon as this game ends, but the Falcons want to end theirs with a winning record.

34 Buccaneers 17

San Francisco 49ers @ Saint Louis Rams

The Niners should beat up the Rams with the run, hopefully proving Saint Louis needs to use the first pick of the draft on Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

49ers 31 Rams 10

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Miami Dolphins

Plain and simple : Pittsburgh needs to win to keep their faint playoff hopes alive.

Steelers 30 Dolphins 20

New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers

The Saints have lost their mojo, while the Panthers are showing us much too late why some thought they once had playoff aspirations this season.

Saints 27 Panthers 23

Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions

Both teams have little to play for, except the Bears need to show why Lovie Smith deserves to retain his job as head coach.

Bears 38 Lions 16

New England Patriots @ Houston Texans

The experienced Patriots are quietly rolling into the playoffs with momentum, while Houston will be playing out of desperation to stay alive in the playoff hunt.

Patriots 34 Texans 30

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns

Two teams with no plans after this game, except for maybe a change of head coaches in Cleveland.

Jaguars 26 Browns 17

Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys

Both teams need to treat this game as a measuring stick for their Super Bowl hopes. Dallas runs the ball really well. Marion Barber averages 4.2 yards per carry, while Felix Jones and Tashard Choice average well over five yards per attempt. Philadelphia, on the other hand, struggles to run the ball consistently. If the passing game isn't clicking in Philly, they are beatable.

Cowboys 31 Eagles 30

Tennessee Titans @ Seattle Seahawks

The only reason to watch this game is to watch Titans running back Chris Johnson set the NFL record for all purpose yards in a season, and hope he can gain 225 rushing yards to break the NFL record of 2,105 rushing yards in a season.

Titans 28 Seahawks 14

Washington Redskins @ San Diego Chargers

The best thing about this game for Washington fans is it is the last for head coach Jim Zorn as part of their team. The Bolts will roll on as the hottest team in the NFL right now, and Norv Turner can give Zorn a hug of recognizable pity for being a failed head coach under Redskins owner Dan Snyder.

37 Redskins 17

Baltimore Ravens @ Oakland Raiders

The Ravens need this if they want to keep playing. The Raiders are the most unpredictable team in the NFL, so the good version could show up and destroy Baltimore's dreams.

Ravens 34 Raiders 19

Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos

Denver is fighting for the playoffs, and they will try to take their frustrations out on a pesky Chiefs team who has shown marked improvement each week.

27 Chiefs 23

Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals

Game Of The Week

If you like passing offense, then tune into this game. Green Bay's quarterback Aaron Rodgers has 4,199 yards and 29 touchdowns passing, while Arizona's Kurt Warner has tossed for 3,722 yards and 26 touchdowns so far. Both teams are headed to the playoffs, so they might have some fun chucking the ball all over the gridiron while trying to stay healthy.

Packers 45 Cardinals 38

Cincinnati Bengals @ New York Jets

The Jets still have playoff hopes, though they may be null and void by the time kickoff comes.The Bengals have already won their first division title since 2005, and second since 1990. I'm thinking the Jets show some heart in their last game in the Meadowlands. Maybe they can finally look for Jimmy Hoffa's remains now?

Jets 30 Bengals 24
