Season To Date: 36-22


Green Bay Packers (12-6) at Atlanta Falcons (12-5): This should be a scoring fest as neither team’s defense is top-notch.  The biggest edge that Atlanta has is they can run the ball well.  The Falcons are balanced on offense and that should help them win the time of possession battle.  Aaron Rodgers will have another big game, but so will Matt Ryan.  The Falcons are at home and the game’s best offense will shred Green Bay’s defense.  Falcons 38- Packers 34.


Pittsburgh Steelers (13-5) at New England Patriots (15-2): The Pats have the best defense of all the remaining teams.  Bill Belichick is a master at taking away one piece of a team’s offense.  He has circled LeVeon Bell as the player that has to be contained.  Tom Brady has a history of playing well against the Steelers.  He also will look to bounce-back after a pedestrian day versus the Texans.  The Pat’s improved offensive line limits Pittsburgh’s revived pass rush.  Brady leads New England to another trip to the Super Bowl in a very close game.  Patriots 27- Steelers 23.
