PACKERS at COWBOYS
A preview of the NFC Championship Game? Despite leading the NFC in takeaways, with 29, Green Bay has failed to force a turnover in its two games. The Pack will need a few to snap a six-game losing streak at Texas Stadium.
DOLPHINS at OILERS
The league's biggest impact rookies on either side of the ball, Miami middle linebacker Zach Thomas and Houston running back Eddie George, go head-to-head. The Dolphins must get their running game untracked versus a D yielding a league-low 80.5 yards rushing.
BRONCOS at PATRIOTS
When these two met in Foxboro last season, Denver waxed New England 37-3. The Broncos' John Elway is 8-0 against New England, which has the NFL's most porous pass defense.
REDSKINS at EAGLES
Philadelphia, which was beaten by Buffalo on Sunday, has not lost two in a row since Games 3 and 4 of the '95 season. Against a Redskins defense that gave up 615 yards to the Cardinals, Ray Rhodes's team should halt another losing streak at one.
PANTHERS at RAMS
To make the playoffs in just its second year, Carolina needs to win one of its three remaining road games. St. Louis provides the best opportunity, but a Rams team that erupted for 59 points, the NFL's highest scoring total in the '90s, can't be taken lightly.
