Houston Texans (3-3) vs Carolina Panthers (0-6), Sunday at ! P.M. EST

Prediction: Texans 24, Panthers 20

The battle of the top two overall picks in this past draft class as C.J. Stroud takes on Bryce Young. They seem to be on different paths at the moment as one has seen early success and the other has been down in the dumps. Stroud and the Texans are the better team and should take care of business against a Panthers squad that is struggling.

LA Rams (3-4) vs Dallas Cowboys (4-2), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Cowboys 25, Rams 22

The Rams are a team that will probably be in most games this year no matter who they play. They are a competitive team that could sneak into the playoffs if certain situations work out. Dallas is coming off a bye week and should be able to use that to their advantage. Expect the Rams to put up a fight, but the Cowboys kick a game winning field goal for another home victory.

Minnesota Vikings (3-4) vs Green Bay Packers (2-4), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Vikings 27, Packers 21

Green Bay is struggling now after a good start to their season. Jordan Love seems to be regressing and his future in Green Bay will be thrown into question this offseason. Minnesota is playing good football right now and that should translate over to this game. Expect Kirk Cousins to do enough with what he has to keep the Vikings in the playoff conversation.

New Orleans Saints (3-4) vs Indianapolis Colts (3-4), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Colts 20, Saints 14

Gardner Minshew has done an admirable job since becoming the starter for the Colts. Both of these teams have their issues, but Indianapolis seems to be playing the better ball right now. New Orleans defense should be able to hold the Colts offense to minor damage. The Saints offense might not be able to do enough to secure a win though.
