steelers over TITANS
Coming off a 30-7 drubbing at Minnesota last week, the Titans (1-4) get roughed up again and continue to tumble toward the bottom of the AFC ranks. Ben Roethlisberger throws for 300 yards and two touchdowns as Pittsburgh cruises past Tennessee in Nashville.

bengals over BROWNS
Cincinnati lost at home to the Dolphins last week. Not good. The Browns have shown signs of respectability (i.e. building a 14-0 lead against the Giants at New York last week). But the Browns still bumble more than the Bengals. A.J. Green extends his touchdown-scoring streak to five games as Cincinnati scratches out the victory.
PREDICTION: bengals 20, BROWNS 16
|Rams RB Steven Jackson|
Stephen Jackson finally appears to be at full health. The Rams back rushes past the 100-yard mark for the first time this season as his Rams quietly improve to 4-2.
PREDICTION: rams 17, FINS 13
colts over JETS
The Andrew Luck show takes its exhibit to the Big Apple this afternoon to play the Jets. New York continues to find it difficult to win without a quality quarterback. Luck's Colts pull the upset over Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow or whoever else might be at the helm for the host Jets today.

BUCS over chiefs
A battle of one-win teams takes place in Tampa Bay today, where the Buccaneers entertain the visiting Kansas City Chiefs. Who wins? Who cares? I guess the Bucs fans might. And today they're able to witness that win. The home team stops its three-game skid, topping the Chiefs by six.
|Ravens K Justin Tucker|
PREDICTION: BUCS 23, chiefs 17
RAVENS over boys
Dallas brings its "A" game to Baltimore this afternoon ... but, its not quite enough. Rookie kicker Justin Tucker boots a 48-yard game-winner in overtime, as the Ravens stave off a rugged effort from the Cowboys to win its 11th straight home game.
PREDICTION: RAVENS 20, boys 17 (in OT)
