(All times Eastern)
Week 10
Sun. 1 p.m. | CBS
Cincinnati (1-7) at Baltimore (3-5)
Golly, no guarantees out of Cincinnati this week? How about memorable movie lines that fit the bill: Detroit Rock City -- Christine: "Disco's so [expletive] big right now, I wouldn't be surprised if KISS did a disco song." I'll be surprised if the Bengals do The Hustle.
Ravens 24, Bengals 13
Sun. 1 p.m. | CBS
Indianapolis (4-4) at Philadelphia (6-2)
Right now, this is not the team Indy's struggling offense needs to face. Bull Durham -- Nuke to Annie: "Well, he called it the Bermuda Triangle. He said that a man could get lost in there and never be heard from again." Yep, that's Manning, Harrison and James.
Eagles 31, Colts 17
Sun. 1 p.m. | FOX
New Orleans (6-2) at Carolina (3-5)
Anyone left on that Carolina bandwagon? Sleepy Hollow -- Ichabod Crane: "Truth is appearance, but appearance isn't always truth." With that in mind, the Panthers aren't that bad. They aren't that good, but they ain't that bad, either.
Saints 21, Panthers 10
Sun. 1 p.m. | CBS
Houston (2-6) at Tennessee (4-4)
Can you taste the barbecue Houston throws with a win? Dancer, Texas Pop. 81 -- Sue Ann: "I don't know how the two of you live in this trailer at an angle like this." Squirrel: "He was drunk when he parked it. Never got around to leveling it." NFL newbies get leveled.
Titans 24, Texans 14
Sun. 1 p.m. | CBS
San Diego (6-2) at St. Louis (3-5)
Everyone who had the Rams left for dead, step to the left. Less Than Zero -- Clay: "Just leave with me! There's no reason for you to stay. Not here, not in L.A." Reckon Frontiere and Spanos have that same conversation? One left L.A.; will the other move there?
Chargers 24, Rams 21
Sun. 1 p.m. | FOX
N.Y. Giants (4-4) at Minnesota (2-6)
Everyone who still has the Vikings in the dead pool, step to the right. Field of Dreams -- Anni Kinsella: "Oh, Lord. You're supposed to build a football field now?" Well, a new stadium is about all Minnesota fans have to be excited about; winter is coming.
Giants 28, Vikings 17
Sun. 1 p.m. | FOX
Atlanta (5-3) at Pittsburgh (5-3)
LoveFest '02: Reeves-Maddox. Serendipity -- Jonathan: "I just had a really great time and for all we know I wouldn't be able to find you again." Sara: "Well, if we're meant to meet again, we'll meet again. it's just not the right time now." Dan's right: Tommy can play.
Steelers 21, Falcons 17
Sun. 1 p.m. | FOX
Detroit (3-5) at Green Bay (7-1)
I asked Santa for a late-January trip to San Diego. A Life Less Ordinary -- Celine's mother: "Remember my dear, they only want one thing. Maybe they want it more than once, but it's still only one thing." One thing? OK, how about another Super Bowl win for 4?
Packers 21, Lions 13
Sun. 4 p.m. | FOX
Seattle (2-6) at Arizona (4-4)
Someone get Jim Zorn on the horn; even at 48 he's better than Matt Hasselbeck. A Few Good Men -- Col. Jessup: "You want answers?" Kaffee: "I want the truth!" Col. Jessup: "You can't handle the truth!" (Psst: Truth is, for whatever reason, Matt's just bad.)
Cardinals 31, Seahawks 17
Sun. 4 p.m. | FOX
Washington (4-4) at Jacksonville (3-5)
A little birdie told me the ol' ball coach is a big fan of Deliverance -- Bobby Trippe: "Mister, I love the way you wear that hat." Old man: "You don't know nothin'." The next day, Spurrier (a native of the Great Smoky Mountains region) switched to a visor.
Redskins 27, Jaguars 17
Sun. 4:15 p.m. | CBS
Kansas City (4-4) at San Francisco (5-2)
Better be in your seat at kickoff for this one. The Chiefs may challenge the record for points allowed, while the Niners' offense is hitting its stride. Jerry Maguire -- Bob Sugar: "It's not 'show friends.' It's show business." That's the T.O.-Mooch agreement.
49ers 31, Chiefs 21
Sun. 4:15 p.m. | CBS
New England (4-4) at Chicago (2-6)
Each time I think Bill Belichick is ripe for the picking, he puts us know-it-all media types in our place. Beautiful Girls -- Paul: "Don't let them behind the curtain. Never let them see the mighty and powerful Oz is just a little old man pulling levers."
Patriots 34, Bears 17
Sun. 8:30 p.m. | ESPN
Miami (5-3) at N.Y. Jets (3-5)
The over/under on ESPN's Joe Theismann starting a sentence with "I" is 75. JFK -- David Ferrie: "It's a mystery! It's a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma!" Miami has lost two in a row. Is this an early jump on the Dolphins' usual late-season swoon?
Dolphins 28, Jets 24
Mon. 9 p.m. | ABC
Oakland (4-4) at Denver (6-2)
Here's to MNF's 500th game. Now, can we rustle up Dandy Don, Giff and bench Madden, Michaels for a week? About Last Night ... -- Dan: "Oh, you're not leaving are you?" Joan: "No, ah, we're walking in backwards." Just like Oakland.
Broncos 28, Raiders 17
Bye week: Buffalo, Cleveland, Dallas and Tampa Bay

Last week: 10-4. Overall: 79-51.
