Green Bay Packers: The Packers (6-3 straight-up, 4-5 against the spread) won four straight games (3-1 ATS) before having a bye last week. The offense has really come on the last six contests (30.3 points per game) with the "over" going 5-1. There is a key injury on defense with pass rusher Clay Matthews (hamstring) out indefinitely (click to check updated NFL injury report).

Detroit Lions: The Lions (4-5 SU and ATS) find themselves at the bottom of the NFC North with their playoff hopes fading fast. Detroit has played just three home games this year (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) with the next three in Motown. There are major injury concerns in the secondary, which could be a big problem against Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Television: CBS

San Diego Chargers: The Chargers (4-5 SU and ATS) are just 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games, and both wins came against the struggling Kansas City Chiefs. One of the recent losses was home versus Denver on October 15, a devastating 35-24 setback after getting outscored 35-0 in the second half.

Denver Broncos: The Broncos (6-3 SU and ATS) have been going in the opposite direction, 4-0 SU and ATS the last four and scoring 34 ppg (the "over" 3-1). Denver QB Peyton Manning is playing at an MVP caliber, but the team can’t be too overconfident with San Diego 5-1 SU and 4-0-2 ATS in the last six at Mile High.

Television: NBC

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens (7-2 SU, 4-5 ATS) annihilated Oakland last week 55-20 to improve to 5-0 SU (2-3 ATS) at home. However, the road hasn’t been as kind at 2-2 SU (2-2 ATS), but they have won two of the last three at Heinz Field, and a win on Sunday will put them in firm control of the AFC North.

Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers (6-3 SU, 4-5 ATS) have won four straight, but QB Ben Roethlisberger is out with a shoulder injury, with Byron Leftwich the replacement (note the spread move). Pittsburgh is 4-0 SU (2-2 ATS) at home this year, with the "under" 7-0 in the team's last seven home games overall. The "over" is 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings between these teams in Pittsburgh.
