Packers (4-5) at Bucs (4-5)
Bucs pick off Favre three times, sack him three times but still have to hold on for close one.
Mills pick: Bucs 21, Packers 20
Ravens (5-4) at Dolphins (5-4)
What's happening in South Beach? Lost running game, erratic quarterback, embattled coach. Ravens run at them hard.
Mills pick: Ravens 20, Dolphins 10
Jaguars (2-7) at Titans (7-2)
The Titans are one of the top three teams in the league and are unbeaten at home. It's unlikely the Jaguars will pull off back-to-back upsets.
Mills pick: Titans 24, Jaguars 17
Rams (6-3) at Bears (3-6)
The Bears are playing out the season in anticipation of major changes. The Rams are looking for a division title. Easy pick here.
Mills pick: Rams 24, Bears 9
Texans (3-6) at Bills (4-5)
The Bills are not living up to their expectations but should catch a break against the Texans.
Mills pick: Bills 14, Texans 10
Redskins (4-5) at Panthers (7-2)
No one gives the Redskins any chance, despite their huge win last week over the Seahawks. I smell an upset.
Mills pick: Redskins 17, Panthers 14
Falcons (2-7) at Saints (4-5)
The mere image of Michael Vick at practice should have energized the Falcons. Payback is sweet.
Mills pick: Falcons 30, Saints 21
Cardinals (3-6) at Browns (3-6)
Considering the turmoil, the Browns are ripe for a butt whipping. Problem is the Cardinals can't do that to anyone on the road.
Mills pick: Browns 13, Cardinals 7
Chiefs (9-0) at Bengals (4-5)
When will the upset happen? Can Marvin Lewis and his charges stun the NFL and hold the Chiefs at bay? Nope.
Mills pick: Chiefs 27, Bengals 17
Giants (4-5) at Eagles (6-3)
Eagles have steadied the ship after a rocky start and the Giants have not. Calls for Jim Fassel's job won't help either.
Mills pick: Eagles 19, Giants 17
Jets (3-6) at Colts (7-2)
Tony Dungy vs Herman Edwards. Good friends stop being good friends the minute the whistle blows. Dungy prevails.
Mills pick: Colts 29, Jets 27
Chargers (2-7) at Broncos (5-4)
Jake Plummer is back and the Broncos offense is alive again. The Chargers will be inspired by the win last week, but not enough.
Mills pick: Broncos 33, Chargers 20
Lions (3-6) at Seahawks (6-3)
Seattle is unbeaten at home (5-0) and the Lions aren't good enough to buck that trend.
Mills pick: Seahawks 35, Lions 17
Vikings (6-3) at Raiders (2-7)
Things are so bad in Oakland that even the Vikings defenders are resting easy. Sorry Raider Nation, look to next year.
Mills pick: Vikings 28, Raiders 14
Cowboys (7-2) at Patriots (7-2)
Yet another installment of the Tuna Tour. Parcells has beat the Jets and the Giants but Bill Belichick won't let him do it to the Patriots.
Mills pick: Patriots 22, Cowboys 17
