The Steelers host the surging Bengals on Sunday Night Football, with the good guys getting three points...at home...on primetime...If nothing else, it's James Harrison's Homecoming.
Denver hosting San Diego will be an interesting Thursday Night game, which is about as rare as Mike Wallace making an impact in a game while wearing teal. The race for the top seed seems all but over in the AFC, but in the NFC, pay attention to how Seattle handles a battered Giants team. Giving seven points on the road, if the Seahawks are the juggernauts they think they are, they should win by a lot more than that.
And the Chiefs, at rival Oakland, need a statement game to get themselves back in contention or they may have to keep watching the Bengals get closer in the rear view.
