Sunday, 1 p.m.
Chargers @ Patriots
- A few weeks ago this looked like a wash, but it actually has potential to be a good game now. After starting 0-4, the Chargers look rejuvenated at 3-4 with the best pass-rushing duo in the league. The Patriots’ defense finally has settled down, and now we’ll get a good look at two AFC teams who have seemed to find their identity.
Panthers @ Bucs
- These two teams have been a disappointment, but something has to give. Loser goes home, pretty much. If the Bucs can’t win this game, they are probably the biggest let-down team of the season.
Sunday, 4 p.m.
Cowboys @ Redskins
- This is a huge game for the NFC/NFC East. Both teams are 3-3 and this matchup is always good. The Eagles are in command of the division, but the winner takes a step closer Sunday.
Texans @ Seahawks
- This is another good 4 p.m. game. The Texans are coming off a bye and the Seahawks are coming off a nice win after their own bye. If the Texans are going to be a legit threat in the AFC this season, a win in Seattle Sunday would certainly be a big step toward that goal.
