Share with others:
New York Jets (9-7) at Cincinnati Bengals (10-6), 4:30 p.m. -- . Prediction: Jets, 17-13
Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) at Dallas Cowboys (11-5), 8 p.m. -- . Prediction: Cowboys, 24-17
Dulac's mark • Season record: 167-89 (.652)
New York Jets (9-7) at Cincinnati Bengals (10-6)
4:30 p.m., Paul Brown Stadium • Rex Ryan, who said his team was "done" three weeks ago, now calls the Jets a "Super Bowl team." That assessment is probably no more accurate than his other forecast three weeks ago, but the Jets certainly looked the part when they embarrassed the Bengals Sunday.
Prediction: Jets, 17-13.
Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) at Dallas Cowboys (11-5)
8 p.m., Cowboys Stadium • Instead of a late-season meltdown, the Cowboys are going in an opposite direction. Their 24-0 victory against the Eagles six days ago was their third victory in a row. More impressive, they finished the season with back-to-back shutouts.
Prediction: Cowboys, 24-17.
