Buccaneers (5-5) to Browns (3-7)

13:00 ET | FOX | Distribute: TB -3 (42.5)

What to look for: Bucks quarterback Tom Brady plays 7-1 against the Browns in his career and his only loss came in 2010. Brady also threw 13 touchdowns and just four interceptions against Cleveland, who enters this game with the second-highest scoring defense (26.9). allowed points per game) in the league this season. — Jake Trotter

Bold Prediction: No. 32 on the ground this week, the Bucks will hit a season-high 175 yards and three rushing touchdowns. The Browns struggled to stop the streak throughout the year, losing 299 fantasy points in 10 weeks, second in the NFL. Their 16 rushing touchdowns are also the third-highest in the NFL, and have averaged 140.5 yards per game in their last four games. They are most vulnerable in the middle, which lends itself very well to offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. — Jenna Lane

Stat you need to know: Brady is 15-5 (.750) in his career bye, tied with Troy Aikman (9-3) for the fourth-best winning percentage after a bye since his inception in 1990 (among 28 QBs with 10-plus starts). He is behind only Donovan McNabb (11-1, .917), John Elway (8-2, .800) and Peyton Manning (13-4, .765).

Injuries: Buccaneers | browns

What you need to know about fantasy: Donovan Peoples-Jones scored 17.1 on fantasy point against the Bills and surpassed 11 points in five consecutive games. See week 12 rating.

Essence of rates: The last four times the Bucks have been on extended rest, they have lost by an average of 8.0 points per game. Read more.

Moody’s Choice: Buccaneers 30, Browns 23
Walder’s Choice: Browns 24, Buccaneers 22
FPI Forecast: TB, 51.0% (mean 0.4 points)

Bengals (6-4) and Titans (7-3)

13:00 ET | CBS | Distribute: CIN -3 (43.5)

What to look for: Tennessee insists this week against the Bengals is not a revenge game, even as the Cincinnati snatched the golden opportunity from the top-seeded Titans in last year’s AFC Divisional playoff game. The Titans will have a fully healthy Derrick Henry this time around, so Cincinnati will focus on stopping the NFL’s leading hitter, which should open up opportunities for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to get some redemption from last year’s three-interception postseason performance. Tannehill ends his best scoring day of the season with 333 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Packers last week. — Turron Davenport

Bold Prediction: Ryan Tannehill throws for 275 yards with a loss. The Bengals, who are slight favorites on the roads, are very eager to take Henry. It leaves it up to Tannehill whether the Titans want to bounce back from last year’s AFC Divisional Playoff loss in Nashville. — Ben Baby

Stat you need to know: The Titans have gone under 20 points in seven straight games, the third-longest streak in franchise history. The other two occurred in 1993 (11 games) and 1967 (9), when the franchise was called the Houston Oilers.

Injuries: Bengals | Titans

What you need to know about fantasy: Trailon Burks scored 111 yards last Thursday night at Lambo Field, more than double his previous career high. Expectations need to be measured, but he has seen 14 goals since he returned to action in week 10. See week 12 rating.

Essence of rates: The Bengals opened the season 0–2 against a five-out straight spread and have since been 7–1 on ATS and 4–0–1 on overs. Read more.

Moody’s Choice: Bengals 20, Titans 17
Walder’s Choice: Bengals 24, Titans 23
FPI Forecast: CIN, 60.5% (average 3.1 points)

Must Read Match: Without Chase and Mixon, the Bengals show why they are one of the hottest offenses in the NFL… Titans Henry first in the NFL for 1,000 yards, throws for TD to boot… Mixon gets a concussion against the Steelers… OC Titans arrested on Drunk driving fine after returning from Packers win


Bears (3-8) and Jets (6-4)

13:00 ET | FOX | Distribute: NYJ-6 (38.5)

What to look for: The QB bout between struggling 2021 first-round quarterbacks Zach Wilson and Justin Fields will not take place; Wilson was sent to the bench due to performance, and Fields suffers from a left shoulder injury day after day. Who would love Mike White (or Joe Flacco) against Trevor Simian, a former jet? Apart from the quarterback’s decision, this is an important game for the Jets (6-4), who still have a chance to make the playoffs. Their offense must be able to counter the 29th defensive position. — Rich Jiminy

Bold Prediction: Putting an injured Fields in jeopardy of the vicious Jets’ defense would be a malpractice. New York came away from Week 11 with six sacks and eight quarterback slams, and this passing onslaught will delight Simian and Chicago’s holey pass defense. Simian would be sacked four times and throw two interceptions while the Jets held the Bears under 20 points for the first time in six games. — Courtney Cronin

Stat you need to know: The Jets registered at least five sacks in three consecutive games, their longest streak since the 1970 merger. Bears quarterbacks have been fired 40 times this season, the most in the NFL with the Colts.

Injuries: Bears | Jets

What you need to know about fantasy: Fields’ growth is good to see, but be careful assuming it benefits the players around him. Darnell Mooney has scored 13-plus fantasy points only once in a string of high-profile games from Fields and has scored over six goals just twice this season. See week 12 rating.

Essence of rates: The Jets saw four of five home games fall below the total. In fact, in all five of those games, the losing team failed to score 17 points. Read more.

Moody’s Choice: Jets 20, Bears 14
Walder’s Choice: Jets 23, Bears 17
FPI Forecast: NYJ, 70.7% (average 6.3 points)

Must Read Match: Fields day in and day out with a shoulder injury… Wilson on the Jets bench, turn to White as starting quarterback… Long live Butt Fumble


Ravens (7-3) and Jaguars (3-7)

13:00 ET | CBS | Distribute: BAL -4 (43.5)

What to look for: Lamar Jackson has rushed over 100 yards 12 times in his career, including twice this season. His career high is 152 yards against the Cincinnati in 2019. Why is it important? Since the Jaguars allowed Giants quarterback Daniel Jones to run 107 yards earlier this season, the Giants QB has rushed 100 yards for the first time since 1946 (according to the Elias Athletic Bureau). It could be another big day for Jackson on the ground, especially since the Jaguars are getting a little pressure on the edge, which should give Jackson plenty of opportunities to get outside and take off. –Mike DiRocco

Bold Prediction: It’s not the first time the Ravens have pulled out a double-digit lead in a game this season. Baltimore is only the sixth team in NFL history to score 10 or more points in each of the first 10 games of the season. But the Jaguars are a more competitive team than their 3-7 record shows, as they have an 11-plus lead. Jacksonville’s average loss is just 6.8 points. — Jamison Hensley

Stat you need to know: The Ravens are averaging 6.1 yards per rush on the road, the highest in the NFL. They had four straight road games with over 180 yards, and one of them was short of the longest streak in the Super Bowl era (Falcons 1985-86 and Steelers 1976-77).

Injuries: Crows | Jaguars

What you need to know about fantasy: In every game, Jackson was QB1 for three weeks but has since become QB15. See week 12 rating.

Essence of rates: The Ravens have seen six of their last seven games under total, a trend that has never been clearer than in last week’s 13-3 win over the Panthers, who had 41.5 points more / less. Read more.

Moody’s Choice: Crows 27, Jaguars 20
Walder’s Choice: Jaguars 20, Ravens 17
FPI Forecast: BAL, 57.5% (average 2.3 points)

Must Read Match: Lamar furious over Stanley’s injury: ‘I hurt him’…What to expect from the Jaguars after a week of goodbye? … It was like Ravens’ football: Baltimore uses its great defense of the past


Texans (1-8-1) to Dolphins (7-3)

13:00 ET | CBS | Distribute: Ministry of Internal Affairs -14 (47)

What to look for: The Texans own the worst defense in the NFL in terms of yards allowed per game. Meanwhile, the Dolphins just completed their best run of the season with a 195-yard run against the Browns in Week 10. Houston also ranks 26th in yards allowed per passing, which seems like a huge disparity to Miami’s league-leading offense. in this category. Barring a complete break after their week 11 farewell, there’s little on paper to suggest that the double-digit favorites won’t win this game. –Marcel Louis-Jacques

Bold Prediction: Texans new starting quarterback Kyle Allen…
