Dr. Z's Forecast

In games that have a bearing on the playoffs, I'll go with these

The Eagles will shake off the upset by the 49ers and beat the
Redskins in Washington to take the NFC East. The Vikings will win
the NFC North with a victory over Arizona in the desert, while
the Packers will be upset by the Broncos at Lambeau. However,
Green Bay will get the final NFC playoff berth because the
Seahawks, whose road miseries have been well documented, will
come up short again, in San Francisco, as the 49ers claim their
second upset victim in as many weeks.

The Bengals will remain in the hunt for the AFC North crown by
beating Cleveland, but their dream will end later on Sunday when
the Ravens get a home victory over Pittsburgh. And in games that
will help determine the AFC seedings, form will hold as the
Chiefs beat Chicago and the Colts win at Houston.
