Buffalo Bills at Oakland Raiders, Sunday 4:05 ET

Derek Carr suffered a scary looking pinkie injury last week, but one of the leaders in the NFL MVP race seems undeterred when it comes to playing this week. The Bills don't know how Sammy Watkins will fare, so they added former quarterback Logan Thomas this week, who has caught touchdown passes from current quarterback Tyrod Taylor back at Virginia Tech.

Raiders 28, Bills 20

New York Giants at Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday 4:25 ET

This may be one of the most exciting games in the NFL this week, as dynamic receivers Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. will be competing on the same field. The Giants have won six straight, but against largely weak competition. Pittsburgh is likely to give them a much-needed setback. Steelers 27, Giants 17

Washington at Arizona Cardinals, Sunday 4:25 ET

Washington will be without top tight end Jordan Reed this week (separated shoulder), but the fall to Vernon Davis shouldn't be a large one. Arizona has been a huge disappointment this NFL season and is largely playing for pride right now, although running back David Johnson should be in the NFL MVP discussion.

Cardinals 20, Washington 16

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Diego Chargers, Sunday 4:25 ET

The Chargers have an enormous distraction on their hands for Sunday, as news trickled out this week that their time in San Diego is likely coming to an end soon. The Bucs have the skill to take advantage of this, but perhaps the Chargers have some extra motivation this week.

Chargers 18, Buccaneers 13

Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks, Sunday 8:30 ET

There's some bad blood between these teams and that'll come to the forefront on Sunday, as it has been in the media all week. Like the disappointing Cardinals, the Panthers are playing out the stretch of their NFL year, while the Seahawks are looking to get the offense going after an ugly showing against Tampa Bay last week.

Seahawks 24, Panthers 20

Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets, Monday 8:30 ET

This game largely hinges on whether or not Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be able to return from his concussion this week. Todd Bowles insists his Jets squad keeping playing hard, even though their chance at the NFL playoffs is likely gone. There will be a moment of silence to honor former Jets running back Joe McKnight, who was killed this week. Jets 16, Colts 14
