Dallas Cowboys (6-3) vs Carolina Panthers (1-8), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST
Prediction: Cowboys 35, Panthers 16
Another matchup here where the Cowboys should be able to dominate a bad team. They have destroyed lesser teams like this throughout their season for the most part. The biggest issue with Dallas has been their lack of winning games against quality opponents. Carolina will have almost no answers for the Cowboys and this one should get ugly in a hurry.
Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3) vs Cleveland Browns (6-3), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST
Prediction: Browns 20, Steelers 16
Will the Steelers finally be able to play a full game this time? Or will they remain playing in spurts? Their rushing attack has gotten better, but Kenny Pickett and the passing game still struggles. If the Steelers are able to play a mistake free brand of football on offense, then they should be able to open the possibility of winning this game. It's going to be tough no matter who Cleveland starts.
Pittsburgh's defense is still too inconsistent against the run, and the Browns will rely on that and their offensive line strength to push them to victory. It will come down to the turnover differential, and how Dorian Thompson-Robinson is able to play. There are a lot of things going against both sides, but it will be an ugly win for the Browns at home.
Chicago Bears (3-7) vs Detroit Lions (7-2), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST
Prediction: Lions 30, Bears 21
Tyson Bagent has been an interesting story for the Bears and it's possible that Justin Fields finally returns from injury this week. It was assumed that he would start this game for Chicago and keep it close until the fourth quarter. Detroit is playing quality football this year, and that won't end anytime soon. Expect the Lions to run out of their home stadium with a win.
