This is a lost season for Chicago, though - there's no way Rodgers and crew lose at Lambeau Field in primetime. Packers 31, Bears 13

New York Giants at Los Angeles Rams, 9:30 AM ET Sunday

The NFL's latest stint in London is their first game at legendary rugby venue Twickenham Stadium. The Giants are the better team right now, although they are facing the distraction of more details coming to light in kicker Josh Brown's domestic violence history; he won't travel to London with the team. Giants 24, Rams 20

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins, 1:00 ET Sunday

The Bills are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, but will be without running back LeSean McCoy this weekend. Miami is coming off a surprising upset over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Washington at Detroit Lions, 1:00 ET Sunday

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans, 1:00 ET Sunday

In the ugly AFC South, the Colts have the ugliest inner turmoil; this week, Antonio Cromartie's wife accused the team of cutting her husband because of his national anthem protest. Indy will be thankful to get back to things on the field on Sunday.

Colts 26, Titans 17

New Orleans Saints at Kansas City Chiefs, 1:00 ET Sunday

Kansas City is one of the more topsy-turvy teams in the NFL, being shellacked one weekend and dominating the next. They'll enjoy being at Arrowhead Stadium against the Saints considering Drew Brees' road struggles. Chiefs 31, Saints 27

Oakland Raiders at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1:00 ET Sunday

Expectations were high for both of these perennial losers to turn it around this season. Jacksonville hasn't got it done, but the Raiders look like a legitimate threat in the AFC West. Their main distraction this weekend?
