Kansas City (5-1) at Oakland (2-4), 8:25 p.m. on NBC and NFL Network. Capulets vs. Montagues.

Dogs vs. cats.

Hatfields vs. McCoys.

Crips vs. Bloods.

North vs. South.

Batman vs. The Joker.

Superman vs. Lex Luthor.

They’re rivals.

They don’t like each other.

They’re in the same division.

Don’t expect any exchange of Christmas cards between them.

They meet in the week seven opener on the West Coast as Kansas City and Oakland meet in AFC West action. Both teams are coming off tough losses at home, with the Raiders trying to catch up to the first-place Chiefs.

Kansas City saw their hopes of an unbeaten season die at Arrowhead last Sunday, falling to Pittsburgh 19-13. Kansas City saw a 3-2 first quarter lead get away from them and trailed 12-3 at the intermission before rallying to pull to within 6 with 2:17 left to play. Kansas City had one last rally to take the lead and got as close as Pittsburgh’s 48 yard line before Alex Smith’s pass attempt to WR De’Anthony Thomas fell short of its mark (the two had connected on a 57-yard TD pass earlier in the period). Smith threw for 246 yards and was sacked three times, while Ben Roethlisberger threw for 252 with a TD. Pittsburgh held the Chiefs to 28 yards rushing, holding rookie RB Kareem Hunt to 21, while they rushed for 194 yards, with LeVeon Bell leading all rushers with 179 yards and a TD. Pittsburgh went 4 of 11 on third down conversions and kept the ball for 36:39, while the Chiefs went 3 of 11 on third down, 0 of 2 on fourth down and held the ball for 23:21.

The Raiders saw victory slip away from their grasp last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, falling to their AFC West and instate rivals 17-16. Oakland led 10-7 at the half, held that lead through a scoreless third quarter and led 16-14 with 7:51 left before the Bolts went to work and sent Raider fans home miserable when Nick Novak (San Diego’s second kicker of the season) connected on a 32-yard field goal as time expired. Los Angeles used an 11-play, 78-yard drive that used 4:09 to seal Oakland’s fate, giving them their second win in a row. Oakland outrushed the Chargers 109-80, while Derek Carr threw for 171 yards, a TD and a pair of interceptions. For the Chargers, Philip Rivers threw for 268 yards and a TD to RB Melvin Gordon (Gordon also had a rushing TD as well). Oakland was 6 of 12 on third down (0 of 1 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 27:57, while the Chargers were 6 of 14 on third down, 1 of 2 on fourth down, keeping the pigskin for 32:03.

Including game that were played when the Chiefs were in Houston and known as the Texans and the Raiders played in Los Angeles, Kansas City leads the series 60-51-2, they have outscored Oakland 2,365-2,171 and the Chiefs have come away victors in their last five contest, including sweeping the series last year (Oakland’s last win over the Chiefs came in 2014, when the Silver and Black took a 24-20 win in Oakland).

The first meeting? Week six in Oakland and the Chiefs used a pair of Chris Santos field goals in the second half to win 26-10. Kansas City led 13-10 at the intermission at the Coliseum before they pulled away in the second half, scoring their final 13 points in the contest unchallenged. KC outrushed Oakland 183-65, with Chiefs RB Spencer Ware leading the way with 131 yards and a TD. Smith threw for 224 yards in the contest, while Carr threw for 225 yards with a TD in the loss (Carr was sacked once and picked off once). Kansas City was 7 of 13 on third down tries on the West Coast, keeping the ball for 36:45, while the Raiders were 23:15 in time of possession, going 4 of 10 on third down, 0 of 2 on fourth down.

Kansas City made it a sweep of the series against their AFC West foes, taking a 21-13 win in week 14 at Arrowhead. The Chiefs trailed 3-0 after the first 15 minutes of action before outscoring the Raiders 21-7 to lead by that score at the half. Oakland did manage to outrush Kansas City 135-64, with Raiders RB LeShaun Murray leading the way with 103 yards and a TD. Smith threw for 264 yards and a TD, while Carr led Oakland with 117 yards. The Raiders were 5 of 18 on third down (1 of 3 on fourth down) and ruled the clock, as they held the ball for 31:45, while the Chiefs were 5 of 11 on third down (0 of 1 on fourth down) and held the ball for 28:15.

Oakland was a 1-point favorite in the week six contest and the Chiefs would go on to win by 16, covering that spread. The two teams barely missed the 46 1/2, as Oakland and Kansas City combined for 46 points. When the Chiefs completed the sweep in week 14 in Arrowhead, they were favored by 3 and covered the spread, winning by 8. The 46 over/under was safe as both clubs only tallied 34 points.

The odds makers like the Chiefs as a 3-point favorite on the road and the over/under is 47. Both numbers make a lot of sense. Kansas City’s trying to right itself from the loss at home last week, the Raiders are trying not to lose three games in a row. Kansas City bounces back from their loss to Pittsburgh and wins in Oakland’s back yard, covering the 3.

With three weeks remaining in the regular season, the suspense continues to build as teams make their final playoff push. Twenty-six teams remain in contention for a trip to Super Bowl LI.

The Dallas Cowboys are the only team that has clinched a spot in the postseason. So as we approach the final three weeks of the regular season, there are still 11 playoff berths up for grabs.

Dallas (11-2) can clinch both the NFC East division title and a first-round bye with a win and a New York Giants loss. If the Cowboys win and the game between the Giants and Detroit ends in a tie, Dallas will also secure home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The Lions (9-4) can win the NFC North with a victory and a Green Bay loss. Seattle (8-4-1) can clinch the NFC West with a win or an Arizona loss. The Giants (9-4) can secure a playoff berth with a win and losses by Washington, Green Bay and Minnesota. Seattle won the NFC West Thursday night with a 24-3 win over Los Angeles in the land of Grunge, Salmon and Starbucks.

New England (11-2) can clinch the AFC East division title and a first-round bye with a win. If the Patriots lose in Week 15, New England can still win the division with a Miami loss and can still secure a first-round bye with a Miami loss and either a Pittsburgh loss or a Kansas City win. Kansas City (10-3) can clinch a playoff berth with a win or with losses by Denver and either Pittsburgh or Baltimore. Oakland (10-3) can secure a playoff spot with a win. There are also various scenarios for Oakland to advance to the postseason this week even if the Raiders lose. In other words, this is going to cause more confusion than a mouse in a burlesque show (apologies to Foghorn Leghorn!)

ICYMI: Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell rushed for 236 yards with three touchdowns and had four catches for 62 yards in the Steelers’ 27-20 win at Buffalo. Bell is the second player in NFL history with at least 225 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns and 50 receiving yards in a single game, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown (November 19, 1961).

Bell, who had 298 scrimmage yards in today’s victory, has 1,616 scrimmage yards in 10 games this season, the second-most in a player’s first 10 games of a season. Brown had 1,704 scrimmage yards in his first 10 games in 1963.

RISING UP: Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan completed 18 of 28 passes (64.3 percent) for 237 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 126.6 passer rating in the Falcons’ 42-14 win at Los Angeles. Ryan reached 4,000 passing yards (4,050) for the sixth consecutive season, tying Peyton Manning (1999-2004) for the second-longest streak in NFL history. New Orleans quarterback. On the other side of the ball, Atlanta linebacker Vic Beasley, Jr. had three sacks, one forced fumble and a 21-yard fumble-return touchdown in the Falcons’ win at Los Angeles. Beasley is the 10th player – and first Falcon – to record three sacks and a fumble-return touchdown in a single game since the sack became an official statistic in 1982.

Drew Brees, who passed for 257 yards in the Saints’ 16-11 loss at Tampa Bay, reached 4,000 passing yards (4,170) for his NFL-record 11th consecutive season.

•Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of 23 passes (78.3 percent) for 246 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 150.8 passer rating in the Packers’ 38-10 win against Seattle. Rodgers, who has won 15 consecutive December starts at Lambeau Field, is the second player in NFL history to win 15 consecutive home starts in the month of December, joining Tom Brady (19 games from 2002-2012).

Rodgers threw two touchdown passes to wide receiver Jordy Nelson in the win over Seattle. Rodgers and Nelson have connected on 57 touchdown passes, tying Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Farve and Antonio Freeman for the most touchdown passes from a quarterback to a receiver in franchise history.

DON’T COUNT THE LIONS OUT! Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford rushed for a seven-yard touchdown with 3:17 remaining in the fourth quarter in the Lions’ 20-17 victory over Chicago. Stafford has led eight game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime this season, the most such drives by a quarterback in a single season since 1970.

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS! Washington wide receiver De Sean Jackson had three catches for 102 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins’ 27-22 win at Philadelphia. Jackson, who had an 80-yard touchdown catch in the victory, has 22 career touchdowns of at least 60 yards, the second-most in NFL history. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (23) has more 60+ yard touchdowns.

Philadelphia’s Darren Sproles had a touchdown catch in the loss against Washington, his 30th career touchdown reception. Sproles is the first player in NFL history to have at least 30 receiving touchdowns (30), 20 rushing touchdowns (21), a punt-return touchdown (seven) and a kick-return touchdown (two).

Week 15 got underway in the Pacific Northwest as Seattle took ownership of the NFC West title Thursday night against Los Angeles at CenturyLink Field in the land of Grunge, Salmon and Starbucks and concludes in Landover as Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers take on the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. The Sunday action concludes in the Lone Star State as Dallas and Tampa Bay meet in prime time on Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.

As for week 14… 13 and 3 for last week. For the season, we’re 143-63. There’s two more weeks of football left in the season. For some teams, it’s a chance to improve on last year and make the playoffs. For others, the last two weeks are a chance to re-boot and look forward to 2017.

With that, here’s the Sunday and Monday picks for week 15.

San Francisco (1-12) at ATLANTA (8-5), 4:05 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 714. The 1-12 49ers, struggling to the finish line in the 2016 season, travel east to face the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.

The 49ers let a 17-14 lead get away from them against the New York Jets last Sunday in Santa Clara and lost in overtime 23-17. San Francisco led 17-3 at the half before the Jets chipped away at the lead, tying the contest on a 50-yard field goal by Nick Folk with 38 seconds left in regulation and eventually won in the extra period when Bilal Powell scored from 19-yard run with 8:35 left in the overtime. San Francisco wasted a great effort by RB Carlos Hyde, who ran for 193 yards, while Powell ran for 145 yards and a pair of TDs, including the game-winner (San Francisco outrushed New York 248-188). Colin Kaepernick threw for 133 yards without a TD, while the Jets’ Bryce Petty threw for 257 yards and a TD but was sacked six times.

Even with no Julio Jones or Mohamed Sanu, the Falcons made their trip to the West Coast successful as they silenced the Los Angeles Rams 42-14 at the Coliseum Sunday afternoon. The Falcons, sitting on top of the NFC South mountain, took advantange of four turnovers in the contest to score 28 points as the Rams trailed 21-0 at the half. Los Angeles outrushed Atlanta 104-66 with Todd Gurley leading all rushers with 61 yards on the ground, while Matt Ryan reached the 4,000 yard plateau for the eighth straight season, as he threw for 237 yards and three TDs, doing it without Jones (turf toe) or Sanu (groin). Jarred Goff threw for 235 yards and scored the Rams’ second TD but threw a pair of interceptions and was sacked three times.

San Francisco leads the series (which includes contests played at Keezar Stadium, Fulton County Stadium and Candlestick Park) 46-29-1, the 49ers have outscored Atlanta 1,821-1,317 and have  won the last two regular season contests, including a 17-16 win last year in Santa Clara (Atlanta’s last win in the series came in the Big Peach by a final of 16-14 in 2010).

They met in northern California in week nine and Atlanta trailed 17-13 at the break before Matt Bryant kicked a 19-yard field goal with 2:56 left to play to pull to within one. San Francisco then proceeded to run the clock out and take the one-point win at Levis’ Stadium. Atlanta rushed for a season-low 17 yards in the one-point loss on the West Coast, while San Francisco ran for 133, Ryan threw for 303 yards with a TD, connecting with DeVonta Freeman on a 17-yard toss, while Gabbert threw for 185 yards with a pair of interceptions.

Atlanta’s favored by 13 1/2 and the over/under’s 51 1/2. The 51 1/2 makes sense. The 13 1/2? Not so much. The 49ers are a bad team but they’re not 13 1/2 bad. Still, they’re a bad team. Atlanta prevails in the Big Peach but expect San Francisco to at least give them a fight.

Philadelphia (5-8) at Baltimore (7-6), 1 p.m. on and DirecTV 709. They’re only 99 miles and 1 hour and 36 minutes away from each other. The Baltimore Ravens return to Charm City for an afternoon contest with the Philadelphia Eagles in only their fifth meeting all time. Both teams enter the Sunday contest at M&T Bank Stadium with losses under their wings.

The Eagles’ dimming playoff hopes took another hit last Sunday in the City of Brotherly Love, falling to NFC East rival Washington 27-22 at Lincoln Financial Field. Philly led 13-7 at the break before the defending NFC East champs rallied in the second half, outscoring the Eagles 20-9 in the final 30 minutes of action. The Eagles took a 22-21 lead with 4:59 to play in the contest on a 41-yard field by Caleb Sturgis before Washington took the lead back and for keeps when Chris Thompson scored on a 25-yard run with 1:53 left. Philadelphia then got the ball back and got as close as Washington’s 14-yard when rookie QB Carson Wentz was sacked and fumbled the ball, which was recovered by DE Trent Murphy. Washington would go on to run out the clock and take the win. In dropping their fourth contest in a row, the Eagles were held to 95 yards rushing, while Washington racked up 107. Wentz threw for 314 yards and a TD to Darren Sproles (who left the game with a concussion) with four sacks and an interception, while Kirk Cousins threw for 234 yards and a pair of TDs.

Baltimore took New England to the end before falling to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 30-23 Monday night in Foxboro. The Ravens trailed 16-3 at the intermission before they took advantage of two Patriot special teams turnovers in the third quarter that gave them a chance to take the win on the road, pulling to within three with 6:35 to play when Justin Tucker connected on a 38-yard field goal. Brady and the Pats would then ice the game away when he and WR Chris Hogan connected on a 79-yard strike 17 seconds later. New England outrushed the Ravens 95-42, while Brady threw for 406 yards and three TDs, while Joe Flacco threw for 324 yards and two TDs (each man threw an interception in the Monday night contest).

Philly leads the series 2-1-1 and the Eagles have outscored Baltimore 79 to 56. Philly won the last meeting, coming away 24-23 winners in the City of Brotherly Love in 2012, while Baltimore’s lone win in the series came in 2008 in Charm City by a final of 36-7. Baltimore’s favored by 6 and the over/under’s 41 1/2. Both numbers make a lot of sense. Both teams are trying to get to the playoff party and in the end, someone’s gonna get their wings clipped. Baltimore covers the 6 in Charm City and puts another dent in the Eagles’ playoff hopes in the process.

Cleveland (0-13) at Buffalo (6-7), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 705. They meet on the shores of Lake Erie. One team trying to make the post-season, the other team just trying to win a game. A pair of lakeside teams meet in upstate New York as Cleveland travels to Orchard Park for a contest with the Buffalo Bills.

The Browns’ woes continued at home last Sunday against their in-state and AFC North rivals Cincinnati as they lost to the Bengals 23-10 along the shores of Lake Erie. Although they trailed Cincinnati 20-0 at the half, the Browns did manage to give their fans something to cheer for as they outscored the Bengals 10-3 in the second half. It was a battle of the running backs as Cincinnati’s Jeremy Hill (111 yards, TD) and Cleveland’s Isaiah Crowell (113 yards) each led their clubs at snowy FirstEnergy Stadium last Sunday (game time temperature, you ask? A balmy 28 with a wind chill of 16). The Bengals outrushed Cleveland 213-169, while Andy Dalton threw for 180 yards and a pair of TDs, while Robert Griffin III made his return to Cleveland, throwing for 104 yards, three sacks and an interception.

Buffalo also lost at home, falling to Pittsburgh 27-20 Sunday afternoon at snowy New Era Stadium in Orchard Park (you’re wondering how cold it was… game-time temperature at kickoff was a somewhat balmy 27 degrees with an 18 wind chill and snow throughout the game). The Bills trailed 14-7 at the intermission and pulled to within 7 when LeSean McCoy scored on a 3-yard run with 1:25 left to play in the contest. Buffalo found themselves held to 67 yards rushing, while Pittsburgh’s LeVeon Bell ran for 236 yards and three TDs (the Steelers tallied 240 yards rushing), while the Bills picked off Ben Roethlisberger three times.

Cleveland leads the series 11-8, while the Bills have outscored the Browns 356-332 and won the last meeting 2014 in Orchard Park by a final of 26-10, while Cleveland’s last win came in 2013, along the shores of Lake Erie, coming away 37-24 winners. Buffalo’s favored by 10 and the over/under’s 42 1/2. If you’re a Browns fan, you might want to skip this one and watch that Mythbusters marathon on Science Channel. Bills win this one in upstate New York but expect Cleveland to put up a fight.

Green Bay (7-6) at Chicago (5-8), 1 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 710. It’s round two for a pair of NFC North rivals as Green Bay makes their way South to the Windy City for a date with Da Bears.

Green Bay took Seattle to the woodshed at frosty Lambeau last Sunday, taking down the Seahawks 33-10. Rodgers and the Packers led Seattle 14-3 at the half and then shut down Seattle the rest of the way. Even though they were outrushed 136-93 by Seattle, Rodgers threw for 246 yards and three TDs, while Seattle’s Russell Wilson threw for 240 yards and a TD with five interceptions.

Da Bears let a 17-13 lead in the Motor City get away from them as they would fall to Matthew Stafford (223 yards, TD) and the Detroit Lions 20-17 at Ford Field. Trailing 10-3 at the half, Chicago took the lead with 7:07 left in the contest when CB Connor LeBlanc picked off Stafford and returned the ball 24 yards to lead 17-13. That lead would not last all that long as the Lions used a 7-play, 76-yard drive that took all of 3:50 to take the lead back and for keeps when Stafford scored from 7 yards out with 3:17 left. Chicago would get the ball back one more time after the Lions’ score and advanced their way downfield before their drive fell short at Detroit’s 14-yard line. Detroit outrushed Da Bears 114-92, while Chicago’s Matt Barkley threw for 212 yards and a TD.

They met in Lambeau in week seven on a Thursday night and the Packers manhandled Chicago 26-10. Green Bay led 6-3 at halftime before pulling away from Da Bears in the second half. Rodgers (326 yards) and Davante Adams connected on a pair of TDs, while Randall Cobb chipped in with a third. Green Bay outrushed Chicago 103-69 and picked off Matt Barkley twice in the win in the land of beer, cheese and Bratwurst.

The Packers covered the 8 1/2 point spread in the week seven contest, winning by 16 but both clubs missed the 45 1/2 over/under, scoring 36 points. The Packers are favored again, this time by 6 1/2 and the over/under this time is 42 1/2. Chicago’s out of the post-season picture, while Green Bay is trying to make up ground on Detroit and Minnesota in the NFC North. There is one more factor and that’s Mother Nature. According to our friends at The Weather Channel, Sunday’s game could be the 5th coldest in the history of Soldier Field, so bundle up if ya go. Green Bay may not make the post-season but the Packers complete the sweep in the series and takes the win in the Windy City.

Jacksonville (2-11) at Houston (7-6), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 706. The kings of the AFC South mountain host the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars as the Texans return home to the Lone Star State.

Jacksonville let a 9-9 tie against Minnesota at EverBank Field get away from them as the Vikings went on to win 25-16 in the Sunshine State. Both clubs rushed for 85 yards in the contest, while both Sam Bradford (292 yards) and Blake Bortles (257 yards) each threw a TD pass (Bortles was sacked four times).

Houston came away 22-17 winners over Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium last Sunday. The Texans led 13-3 at the half and got five Nick Novak field goals, including the one that iced the contest away from 34 yards with 2:47 left to play, to take the road win and complete the sweep against the Colts. Texans RB Lamar Miller ran for 107 yards and a 2-yard TD run in the 2nd quarter for the win, as Houston outrushed Indy 185-83, picking off Andrew Luck (276 yards, two TDs) twice, while Brock Osweiler threw for 147 yards in the win.

Houston leads the series 17-11, have outscored Jacksonville 648-553 and swept the last two series, including sweeping the series last year (Jacksonville’s last win in the series came in 2013, when they managed to sweep the series that season).

Week 6… Jacksonville…. First meeting. Houston led 10-7 in the Sunshine State at the half and went on to win 31-20. The Texans would score 21 fourth quarter points unchallenged in the win over the Jaguars and picked off Bortles three times. As far as the rushing game went, it wasn’t a thing of beauty, as neither club broke the 100-yard barrier (Houston outrushed Jacksonville 95-83). As for the air attack, Hoyer threw for 293 yards and Bortles threw for 331 (each man threw three TDs with Bortles throwing three interceptions).

Round 2… week 17… Houston. While Jacksonville was out of the playoff picture, the Texans were getting ready for their AFC Wild Card meeting with Kansas City. For Houston, it was second verse, same as the first. Houston came away 30-6 winners in the rematch in the Lone Star State, leading 20-3 at the break. Nick Novak kicked three field goals for the Texans at NRG Stadium, Hoyer and RB Jonathan Grimes hooked up on the game’s first TD and CB Kareem Jackson picked off Bortles and ran the ball back 27 yards for a TD to seal Jacksonville’s fate. Texans’ RB Alfred Blue ran roughshod over the Jaguars, tallying 102 of his team’s 160 yards, while the Houston defense held Jacksonville to 32 yards, sacking Bortles eight times and picking him off twice.

Houston’s favored by 6 and the over/under’s 39. If nothing else, the Texans could very well improve their playoff chances with a win, while the Jaguars look to at least make things a bit harder for their AFC South rivals. Houston wins and covers the 6.

Tennessee (7-6) at Kansas City (10-3), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 707. The much-improved Tennessee Titans travel to the Show-Me State for a Sunday afternoon contest with the Kansas City Chiefs, who sit atop first place in the AFC West.

Tennessee shutout Denver for three quarters before taking down the defending Super Bowl champions 13-10 at Nissan Stadium. The Titans led 13-0 after three quarters of play before Denver got back into the contest, scoring their 10 points in the fourth quarter unchallenged. Tennessee ran for 180 yards in the 3-point win in the Volunteer State, while holding Denver to a season-low 18 yards. Marcus Mariota threw for only 88 yards but did not throw an interception, while Trevor Sieman threw for 334 yards and a TD but was sacked three times.

The Chiefs took over first place in the AFC West last Thursday night at Arrowhead with their 21-13 win over rival Oakland. Kansas City trailed 3-0 after K Sebastian Janikowski opened the scoring with a 44-yard field goal and took the lead for good when WR Tyreek Hill connected on a 36 yard TD pass from Alex Smith with 14:51 left before halftime. Hill then struck again, returning a punt 78 yards for his second TD of the night. Raiders RB Latavius Murray and Janikowski would pull the Raiders closer but the Chiefs prevailed to take the win. Oakland did manage to outrush Kansas City 135-65 (Murray led all rushers with 103), while Carr threw for 117 yards and Smith threw for 264.

Including games that were played in Houston when the Titans were known as the Oilers and the Chiefs were known as the Dallas Texans before moving to Missouri and playing at Swope Field, Kansas City leads the series 27-21 and they’ve outscored Tennessee 1,032-865. Tennessee won the last meeting with the Chiefs, coming away 26-10 winners at Arrowhead in 2014, while the Chiefs’ last win in the series came in 2013 in the Music City by a final of 26-17. Kansas City’s favored by 5 1/2 and the over/under’s 42 1/2. Both numbers make a lot of sense. The Chiefs are looking to be home for the holidays, while the Titans are looking to knock Houston off the top of the AFC South mountain. Everything’s up to date in Kansas City and so are the Chiefs, who takes this one and covers the 5 1/2.

Indianapolis (6-7) at Minnesota (7-6), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 708. Luck vs. Bradford. The Indianpolis Colts travel to the land of 10,000 Lakes for a Sunday afternoon affair with the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Colts fell to AFC South rivals Houston 22-17 winners in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium last Sunday. Indy trailed 13-3 at the half and kept things close but still lost as Texans’ K Nick Novak connected on five field goals, including the one that iced the contest away from 34 yards with 2:47 left to play, to take the road win and complete the sweep against the Colts. Texans RB Lamar Miller ran for 107 yards and a 2-yard TD run in the 2nd quarter for the win, as Houston outrushed Indy 185-83, picking off Andrew Luck (276 yards, two TDs) twice, while Brock Osweiler threw for 147 yards in the win.

Minnesota broke a 9-9 tie against Jacksonville at EverBank Field and came away 25-16 winners in the Sunshine State. Both clubs rushed for 85 yards in the contest, while both Sam Bradford (292 yards) and Blake Bortles (257 yards) each threw a TD pass (Bortles was sacked four times).

The Colts lead the series 15-7-1 (which includes games that took place in Baltimore and Bloomington), the Colts have outscored the Vikings 585-482 and have won the last four meetings in the series, including a 23-20 win in the Hoosier State in 2012, while Minnesota’s last win in the series came in the Land of 10,000 Lakes by a final of 39-28 in 1997. The Vikings are favored by 4 1/2 and the over/under’s 44 1/2. Both teams are fighting for their playoff lives and the loser is pretty much done, while the winner gets to live and fight another day. Minnesota wins this one but expect Indy to make it closer than the 4 1/2.

Detroit (9-4) at New York Giants (9-4), 1 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 712. A pair of contending teams that could meet in the postseason met in upstate New Jersey as Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions take on Eli Manning and the New York Giants at Met Life Stadium.

The first-place Lions trailed Chicago 17-13 late in their contest with Chicago before Matthew Stafford (223 yards, TD) and the Lions took a 20-17 win at Ford Field. Detroit led 10-3 at the half, before Chicago took the lead with 7:07 left in the contest when CB Connor LeBlanc picked off Stafford and returned the ball 24 yards to lead 17-13. That lead would not last all that long as the Lions used a 7-play, 76-yard drive that took all of 3:50 to take the lead back and for keeps when Stafford scored from 7 yards out with 3:17 left. Chicago would get the ball back one more time after the Lions’ score and advanced their way downfield before their drive fell short at Detroit’s 14-yard line. Detroit outrushed Da Bears 114-92, while Chicago’s Matt Barkley threw for 212 yards and a TD.

The Giants completed the sweep of their series with Dallas as they beat their NFC East rivals 10-7 at Met Life Stadium. Dallas led 7-0 at the half before the Giants scored their points in the third period unchallenged. Big Blue ended Dallas’ bid for a shutout when Robbie Gould connected on a 39-yard field goal with 5:50 left. Manning (193 yards) then broke the hearts and spirits of Cowboys fans when he and Odell Beckham Jr. hooked up on a 61-yard TD pass with 67 seconds left in the contest. Rookie RB Ezekiel Elliot accounted for 107 of Dallas’ 108 yards on the ground, while the Giants tallied 93 and the Giants defense sacked Dak Prescott (165 yards) three times and picked him off twice.

Including contests that took place at Tiger and Yankee Stadiums and in Portsmouth when the team were known as the Spartans, the Lions lead the series 21-20-1 and Detroit has outscored the Giants 727-625. The Lions were winners in the last meeting between the clubs, taking a 35-14 win at Ford Field in 2014, while the Giants’ last win also came in the Motor City, with New York winning 23-20 in overtime in 2013. New York’s favored by 5 and the over/under’s 41 1/2. Is this a preview of the post-season? It could happen. The Lions right now are the two seed in the NFC, while the Giants are the six seed, which means if they were to meet, it would be in Detroit. Right now, they’re in New Jersey and the Giants prove to the world that the win over Dallas was not a fluke and they’ll take this one at home and cover the 5 1/2.

Pittsburgh (8-5) at Cincinnati (5-7-1), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 711. They meet again, this time in the Buckeye State. Pittsburgh, in first in the AFC North, travels to Cincinnati for a week two rematch along the shores of the Ohio River.

Pittsburgh held off Buffalo 27-20 Sunday afternoon at snowy New Era Stadium in Orchard Park in a game that had snow throughout the contest and played in 27 degree weather with a 18 wind chill. Pittsburgh led 14-7 at the intermission before Buffalo pulled to within 7 when LeSean McCoy scored on a 3-yard run with 1:25 left to play in the contest. LeVeon Bell was almost the second coming of Franco Harris, rushing for 236 yards and three TD, while the Steelers held the Bills to 67 yards rushing (the Steelers tallied 240 yards rushing), while the Bills picked off Ben Roethlisberger three times.

Cincy continued the woes of Browns’ fans last Sunday along the shores of Lake Erie against Cleveland as they took the home team to the woodshed, coming away with a 23-10 win on the road. The Bengals led 20-0 at the intermission before Cleveland put on a small rally in the second half. Cincinnati’s Jeremy Hill (111 yards, TD) and Cleveland’s Isaiah Crowell (113 yards) put on a rushing clinic as each led their clubs at snowy FirstEnergy Stadium last Sunday (game time temperature, you ask? A balmy 28 with a wind chill of 16). The Bengals outrushed Cleveland 213-169, while Andy Dalton threw for 180 yards and a pair of TDs, while Robert Griffin III made his return to Cleveland, throwing for 104 yards, three sacks and an interception.

In the week two contest in the Steel City, Pittsburgh led 10-6 at halftime at Heinz Field, then pulled away from the Bengals to take the 24-16 win. Roethlisberger threw three TDs against their AFC North rivals in western Pennsylvania as the Steelers held Cincinnati to 46 yards rushing (Pittsburgh ran for 124). Despite throwing a pair of interceptions, Roethlisberger still managed to throw for 259 yards and the three TDs, while Dalton threw for 366 (each man was sacked once).

Pittsburgh was favored by 3 1/2 and covered the spread, winning by 8. That was the good news. The bad news? Neither club reached the 48 1/2 over/under, scoring 40 points. This time, the Steelers are again the favorites, this time by 3 with a 44 over/under. The last time Pittsburgh swept the series with the Bengals was in 2014, taking a 42-21 win in Cincinnati and a 27-17 win in Pittsburgh. Cincy’s trying to stay alive in the AFC North and while they may not cover the 3, they get revenge from their week two loss in front of the home crowd.

New Orleans (5-8) at Arizona (5-7-1), 4:05 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 713. It’s gumbo vs. Southwestern as the New Orleans Saints travel to Glendale for a late afternoon contest with the Arizona Cardinals. Both teams saw their playoff hopes take a hit as both lost their contests last Sunday and both lost on the road.

Drew Brees (257 yards, three interceptions) was held to his second game without a TD pass (the last time that happened was 2009) as the Saints fell to Tampa Bay 16-11 in the Sunshine State. New Orleans trailed 13-8 at the half and then pulled to within 2 at 13-11 with 3:35 left in the third when Will Lutz connected on a 22-yard field goal. Tampa Bay then pushed the lead back to five with 12:46 left to play in regulation when Rueben Aguayo connected on a 26-yar field goal. The Saints had one last chance to take the lead late in the contest before S Keith Tandy gave Brees his third interception of the afternoon. Tampa Bay outrushed their NFC South foes 104-46, Jameis Winston threw for 184 yards without an interception and Doug Martin accounted for the contest’s only TD, scoring from 1 yard out with 14:50 left before the intermission.

Arizona trailed Miami 14-9 at halftime at Hard Rock Stadium before the Cardinals managed to tie the contest up on an 8-yard TD pass from Carson Palmer to WR J.J. Nelson with 3:01 left in regulation before losing to the Dolphins 26-23 in the final seconds. The Desert Angry Birds pulled to within 8 at 23-15 thanks to a 2-point defensive conversion by S Walt Aikens before Arizona evened the score. Arizona then punted the ball back to Miami, who marched downfield, using an 6-play, 44-yard drive that used all of the 1:29 left in regulation when Dolphins K Andrew Franks connected on a 21-yard field goal as the clock struck :00. Arizona did outush the Dolphins 175-83, while Ryan Tannehill threw for 195 yards and three TDs before spraining his ACL (Palmer threw for 145 yards and had a pair of TDs but also threw a pair of interceptions).

The Desert Angry Birds lead the series 15-13 (which includes contests that took place in St. Louis) and they’ve outscored the Saints 630-595. Arizona won the last meeting with the Saints last year in Glendale by a final of 31-19 (New Orleans’ last win over Arizona came in 2013 in the Big Easy by a final of 31-7).

They met right out of the gate to start the 2015 campaign and Arizona led 14-10 at the break and held serve after that, outscoring the Saints 17-9 in the second half. Arizona outrushed New Orleans 120-54 and Palmer threw three TDs, accounting for 307 yards, while Brees threw for 355 yards with a TD, two sacks and and interception. The odds makers like Arizona as a 2 1/2 favorite with a 50 over/under. For both teams, they know that they have to keep winning and have some luck on their side. The Desert Angry Birds win this one in the desert and cover the 2 1/2.

New England (11-2) at Denver (8-5), 4:25 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 715. They met in the AFC Championship game to decide who would go to Santa Clara. Last year, it was Brady vs. Manning. This year, same teams, different cast as the Patroits travel westward to meet the defending Super Bowl champs at Sports Authority Field.

New England and Tom Brady fought off Baltimore, taking a 30-23 win Monday night in Foxboro. The Pats led 16-3 at the intermission before the Ravens took advantage of two Patriot special teams turnovers in the third quarter that gave them a chance to take the win on the road, pulling to within three with 6:35 to play when Justin Tucker connected on a 38-yard field goal. Brady and the Pats would then ice the game away when he and WR Chris Hogan connected on a 79-yard strike 17 seconds later. New England outrushed the Ravens 95-42, while Brady threw for 406 yards and three TDs, while Joe Flacco threw for 324 yards and two TDs (each man threw an intercaption in the Monday night contest).

Denver trailed Tennessee for three quarters before the defending Super Bowl champions rallied, only to lose to the Titans 13-10 at Nissan Stadium. Tennessee led 13-0 after three quarters of play before Denver got back into the contest, scoring their 10 points in the fourth quarter unchallenged. Tennessee ran for 180 yards in the 3-point win in the Volunteer State, while holding Denver to a season-low 18 yards. Marcus Mariota threw for only 88 yards but did not throw an interception, while Trevor Sieman threw for 334 yards and a TD but was sacked three times.

The defending Super Bowl champs lead the series 26-20 and Denver has outscored New England 1,074-1,007. There was one regular season meeting and one post-season meeting between the two clubs last year, both in Denver and both won by the Broncos (New England’s last win in the series came in 2014 in Foxboro by a final of 43-21.

Round one … Sports Authority Field at Mile High. A week 12 meeting in 23 degree weather (wind chill of a balmy 19) saw New England lead 14-7 at the half, before Denver roared back in the final 30 minutes of regulation to lead 24-21 on a 4-yard pass from Osweiler to Andrew Caldwell with 69 seconds left. That lead would not last very long as the Pats’ Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired in regulation to send the contest into overtime. Brady and the Pats got the ball to start the overtime but went backwards instead of forward, as they only got the ball to their 29 yard line. New England punted and Denver got the ball back, needing only three plays, 57 yards and 79 seconds of time to send the crowd home happy as C.J. Anderson 48 yards unchallenged for the game-winning TD.

Anderson rushed for 113 yards with a pair of TDs (the second one the game-winner), as the Broncos outrushed New England 179-39. Brady threw for 280 yards and three TDs, while Osweiler threw for 270 yards with a TD (each man was sacked three times).

Round two… Sports Authority Field at Mile High and this time, it’s the AFC Championship game, for all the marbles. The weather was a little better (game time temp was 46 with a 43 wind chill) but the result for Denver was the same… a win. the Broncos led 17-9 at the half and came away 20-18 winners in the Winner-take-all affair. Denver would go on to hold off a late New England rally when Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski connected on a 4-yard TD pass with 12 seconds left in regulation. New England, who rushed for 44 yards, tried the onside kick, which Denver recovered and ran out the clock. The Broncos, who tallied 99 yards on the ground, got 176 yards in passing from a kid named Manning, who also threw a pair of TDs without an interception (Brady was sacked four times and picked off twice).

New England’s favored by 3 over the defending Super Bowl champs in the Mile High City and the over/under’s 44. History has a way of repeating itself. With that, the defending Super Bowl champs win at home over Brady and the Pats and cover the 3.

Oakland (10-3) at San Diego (5-8), 4:25 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 716. They met in northern California early in the season. This time, it’s Oakland’s turn to make the 7-hour, 491-mile trip down I-5 to face the Chargers at Qualcomm.

Oakland saw their grip on first place in the AFC West last Thursday night get away from them at Arrowhead with their 21-13 loss to Kansas City. The Silver and Blakc led 3-0 after K Sebastian Janikowski opened the scoring with a 44-yard field goal and lost the lead for good when WR Tyreek Hill connected on a 36 yard TD pass from Alex Smith with 14:51 left before halftime. Hill then Oakland struck again, returning a punt 78 yards for his second TD of the night. Raiders RB Latavius Murray and Janikowski would pull the Raiders closer but the Chiefs prevailed to take the win. Oakland did manage to outrush Kansas City 135-65 (Murray led all rushers with 103), while Carr threw for 117 yards and Smith threw for 264.

The Bolts could never get on track against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, as the defending NFC champs took care of San Diego, taking a 28-16 win in Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium. Carolina held San Diego to 58 yards on the ground, while the Panthers clawed out 126 yards rushing. Newton threw for 160 yards and connected with WR Devin Funchess for a 6-yard TD pass, while Graham Gano kicked four field goals in the 12-point win. San Diego’s Philip Rivers threw for 236 yards and a pair of TDs but was picked off three times and sacked five times, the last coming as a safety for Carolina when DE Mario Addison sacked him in the end zone with 10:09 left in the contest.

They met in week five in Oakland and the Raiders held off San Diego, beating the Chargers 34-31. Oakland trailed 10-9 at halftime before outscoring the Bolts 25-21 in the final 30 minutes of action, then held off a late San Diego drive that would have resulted in a game-tying field goal by Drew Kaser from 35 yards but the snap went off kilter and the Raiders got the ball back. San Diego again tried to march down the field for what would have been the go-ahead TD as Rivers threw to WR Travis Benjamin for no gain. Benjamin then fumbled the ball out of bounds, which ended the contest. Oakland outrushed San Diego 89-72 and Rivers threw for 359 yards with four TDs but threw two interceptions and was sacked twice (Carr threw for 317 yards with a pair of TDs in the three-point win.)

Oakland was favored by 3 1/2 (winning by 3) and the contest had a 50 over/under, which both clubs handled by scoring 65. The Raiders are a 3 point favorite in sunny San Diego and the over/under this time around is 50. The Raiders are trying to keep pace with Kansas City, while Charger fans are looking for hope in order to crash the post-season party. Charger fans get put out of their misery this week. Oakland covers the 3 and wins at Qualcomm.

Tampa Bay (8-5) at Dallas (11-2), 8:30 p.m. on NBC. A pair of young guns meet in the Lone Star State as Jameis Winston and Dak Prescott meet in Arlington in a Sunday night prime time contest at Jerry World.

Tampa Bay held Drew Brees (257 yards, three interceptions) to his second game without a TD pass (the last time that happened was 2009) as the Bucs held off the Saints, taking a 16-11 win in the Sunshine State. New Orleans trailed 13-8 at the half and then pulled to within 2 at 13-11 with 3:35 left in the third when Will Lutz connected on a 22-yard field goal. Tampa Bay then pushed the lead back to five with 12:46 left to play in regulation when Rueben Aguayo connected on a 26-yar field goal. The Saints had one last chance to take the lead late in the contest before S Keith Tandy gave Brees his third interception of the afternoon. Tampa Bay outrushed their NFC South foes 104-46, Winston threw for 184 yards without an interception and Doug Martin accounted for the contest’s only TD, scoring from 1 yard out with 14:50 left before the intermission.

The New York Giants completed the sweep of their series with Dallas as they beat their NFC East rivals 10-7 at Met Life Stadium. Dallas led 7-0 at the half before the Giants took the lead back and for keeps as they scored their points in the third period unchallenged. Big Blue ended Dallas’ bid for a shutout when Robbie Gould connected on a 39-yard field goal with 5:50 left. Manning (193 yards) then broke the hearts and spirits of Cowboys fans when he and Odell Beckham Jr. hooked up on a 61-yard TD pass with 67 seconds left in the contest. Rookie RB Ezekiel Elliot accounted for 107 of Dallas’ 108 yards on the ground, while the Giants tallied 93 and the Giants defense sacked Dak Prescott (165 yards) three times and picked him off twice.

Dallas leads the series 11-4 and the Cowboys have outscored Tampa Bay 274-208. Tampa Bay won the last meeting, which took place last year, when they won 10-6 in the Sunshine State (Dallas’ last win over Tampa Bay came in 2012 in Arlington by a final of 16-10).

In the week five affair at Raymond James Stadium, Tampa Bay trailed a Tony Romo-less Dallas team 6-3 at the break before they rallied in the fourth quarter with Winston scoring the contest’s only TD from 1 yard out with 54 seconds left. Tampa Bay outrushed Dallas 84-72 and Winston threw for 264 yards with a pair of interceptions, while Matt Cassell threw for 186 yards (Winston was sacked twice, while Cassell was sacked three times).

Dallas is favored by 7 and the over/under’s 46. One has already made the playoffs, the other’s trying to get into the playoff party. That alone makes this one “DRILL WORTHY!” (For those of you that know what The Drill is, you are excused. Everyone else, pay attention. We don’t want any rookie mistakes here, k?) After you go to the 9:30 mass on Sunday (the 4:30 vigil mass on Saturday counts as a mass attended, people! Don’t make us send the nuns after you! If we do, it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVER!), head to your favorite store (a trip to Wal Mart, Target, K-Mart or Costco counts) and get the vittles and the beverages (soda, beer, wine, coffee, et al… if you live in a state that allows the purchase of the items in question) and invite the co-workers, the neighbors (including that really cute kindergarden teacher that knows what to do with a cover-2 defense) and your cousin Connie (remember her? She’s the one that’s been married twice that’s just turned 57 last June and dates a 42-year old ex-Marine, who’s now a football coach at the high school in your town. She’s also the one that ate an entire Oreo cheesecake, two bags of Cool Ranch Doritos, two bacon cheeseburgers with blue cheese and chugged two 2-liter Cokes at your Super Bowl party last year and didn’t gain a pound. You look at her and say to yourself, “what the hell?”

Tampa Bay will know if they’re ahead of Atlanta or behind the Falcons when their game in the Big Peach ends around 7 p.m. Eastern. The Falcons would like to get some help from Dallas to keep their NFC South rivals in their rearview mirror. Dallas may not cover the 7 but they take the win in JerryWorld.

Carolina (5-8) at Washington (7-5-1), 8:30 p.m. Monday on ESPN. Week 15 closes out in Landover as a pair of teams looking for a playoff berth as the Panthers take on Washington at FedEx Field.

Cam Newton and the Panthers took San Diego to the woodshed last Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, taking a 28-16 win in Charlotte. The defending NFC champs held San Diego to 58 yards on the ground, while the Panthers clawed out 126 yards rushing. Newton threw for 160 yards and connected with WR Devin Funchess for a 6-yard TD pass, while Graham Gano kicked four field goals in the 12-point win. San Diego’s Philip Rivers threw for 236 yards and a pair of TDs but was picked off three times and sacked five times, the last coming as a safety for Carolina when DE Mario Addison sacked him in the end zone with 10:09 left in the contest.

Washington put a dent in Philadelphia’s playoff hopes last Sunday in the City of Brotherly Love, beating their NFC East rivals 27-22 at Lincoln Financial Field. Washington trailed Philly led 13-7 at the break before the defending NFC East champs rallied in the second half, outscoring the Eagles 20-9 in the final 30 minutes of action. The Eagles took a 22-21 lead with 4:59 to play in the contest on a 41-yard field by Caleb Sturgis before Washington took the lead back and for keeps when Chris Thompson scored on a 25-yard run with 1:53 left. Philadelphia then got the ball back and got as close as Washington’s 14-yard when rookie QB Carson Wentz was sacked and fumbled the ball, which was recovered by DE Trent Murphy. Washington would go on to run out the clock and take the win. In dropping their fourth contest in a row, the Eagles were held to 95 yards rushing, while Washington racked up 107. Wentz threw for 314 yards and a TD to Darren Sproles (who left the game with a concussion) with four sacks and an interception, while Kirk Cousins threw for 234 yards and a pair of TDs.

Washington leads the series 7-5 and the Panthers have outscored Washington 270-247. Carolina has won the last four meetings, including a 44-16 win in Charlotte last year. They met in the Tar Heel State in week 11 and Carolina led 31-14 at the intermission before pulling away from Washington in the second half. Newton threw five TDs in the contest, racking up 246 yards in the contest, while Jonathan Stewart ran for 102 yards (Carolina outrushed Washington 142-14) and the Panther defense made life less than plesant for Cousins, who threw for 207 yards with a TD and was sacked five times.

Washington on Monday night is one game below the .500 mark at 28-29 (the Redskins lost at home to Pittsburgh in week one), while the Panthers are 8-6 (Carolina lost at home to Tampa Bay in week five). The ‘Skins are favored by 4 1/2 and the over/under’s 51. While this one’s not a great game, it’ll be a good one to watch, so you might want to tape “2 Broke Girls” and “Scorpion” this week. “HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!” Washington covers the 4 1/2 and wins in Landover.
