CARDINALS at COWBOYS
Michael Irvin returns to a Dallas offense that is averaging 52.6 fewer yards per game than Arizona's. The Cowboys' defense, top rated in the NFC, will close that gap because it will stop Cardinals running back LeShon Johnson cold.
LIONS at RAIDERS
Detroit has outscored the opposition 45-7 in the first halves of its last two games. Oakland has a chance to beat a team with a winning record for the first time in 14 games, but only if it can hang close early.
DOLPHINS at BILLS
Miami rookie Karim Abdul-Jabbar ran for 280 yards in his first three games—all wins—but only 37 in the last two, which were both Dolphins losses. He must return to his early form in a game that's sure to be a low-scoring affair.
REDSKINS at PATRIOTS
Look who's hot! New England has won three straight, Washington four. The difference: The Pats have not faced a back like the Skins' Terry Allen, who leads the NFC in rushing with 103.8 yards per game.
49ERS at PACKERS
Super Bowl XXXI won't have half the atmosphere of this midseason game at Lambeau Field. Steve Young, who sat out the last two weeks, has thrown one TD pass while Brett Favre has thrown a league-leading 20.
RAVENS at COLTS
Baltimore versus the Colts? Art Donovan's head must be spinning.
