PANTHERS at EAGLES
Anthony Johnson and Ricky Watters, who played in the same backfield at Notre Dame, square off. The Eagles' Watters, who had a career-high 173 yards on Sunday against Miami, should win this duel in a battle between two surprising 5-2 teams.
49ERS at OILERS
Houston coach Jeff Fisher his team headed in the right direction, and we don't mean Nashville. After disposing of the Steelers, the Oilers welcome San Francisco, which has a 7-6 record in its last 13 dome games and could muster only 80 rushing yards against the Bengals.
COWBOYS at DOLPHINS
Forget the hoopla about Jimmy Johnson versus Jerry Jones. The matchup to watch in this battle of 4-3 teams is Dan Marino, back at the helm after missing three games, against Deion Sanders.
CHIEFS at BRONCOS
Denver averages just under 33 points a game at Mile High Stadium, where it is 4-0. To win, K.C. must stop tight end Shannon Sharpe, who has caught more than twice as many passes (48) as the Chiefs' tight-end trio of Keith Cash, Reggie Johnson and Derrick Walker.
BILLS at PATRIOTS
In Week 2 at Rich Stadium, New England outrushed and outpassed Buffalo. The Pats did everything but win because they were 0 for 4 in the red zone. But in their last 10 possessions inside the 20, the Pats have scored nine times, which could spell doom for the Bills.
