Do you realize Colts offensive coordinator/head coach Bruce Arians' name is being mentioned among Coach of the Year candidates? Granted, Chuck Pagano's name is there too, but still. THAT Bruce Arians. The very same.
Miami 31, Tennessee 16
Repeat it again, the Miami Dolphins are still legitimate playoff contenders. Weird, huh?
Detroit 34, Minnesota 21
New England 38, Buffalo 31
New Orleans 31, Atlanta 27
Yep, Smooth Jimmy's calling the Champagne Toast game. Speaking of that, though, would it seem anti-climactic if the Atlanta Falcons were the franchise to knock the 1972 Miami Dolphins off their perch? Smooth Jimmy figures it's odd enough the Falcons are 8-0, undefeated for the season is a bit much to fathom.

A possible Super Bowl match-up, this game is a must-watch for Smooth Jimmy and all those who love defensive football and its cousin Turnover Based defensive football.
Pittsburgh 20, Kansas City 13
The Steelers really shouldn't have much of a problem, which makes Smooth Jimmy nervous. If the Chiefs would find a way to not turn the ball over five times a game, they'd be much better than 1-7. The Steelers really don't force turnovers. That really doesn't bode well, Smooth Jimmy's not gonna lie.
