The NFL season has reached November. Two months have come, and two months are left. The level of urgency in each and every game will only rise as the weeks pass by.
Tennessee Titans @ St. Louis Rams
This is a game the Titans really need to win. Tennessee is coming off a bye week and has had a chance to heal after sustaining a number of important injuries, chiefly at the quarterback position, where Jake Locker missed most of October and took away a measure of scoring punch from his team. The Titans will be playing a St. Louis squad that is without its top quarterback, Sam Bradford, for the rest of the season. The Rams, without Bradford, should be a greatly diminished team. If Tennessee loses here, it cannot expect to be seen as an AFC playoff contender.
San Diego Chargers @ Washington Redskins
This is a game that the Chargers will almost certainly have to win if they want to make the playoffs. Yes, San Diego currently sits in playoff position after the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins lost in week eight. Yet, the Chargers have not yet played one game against the two best teams in their division, the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. It’s quite possible that San Diego will lose three of those four games, and it’s likely that the Chargers will lose at least two of those games. The playoff picture gets complicated for San Diego if it loses after a bye week to a struggling Washington team. This game is a PICK in the sportsbook.
Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers
This is a Monday Night Football NFL betting game that the Packers should be able to win. The Bears are reeling on a physical level. They are coming off a bye week, but they will still be dealing with a lot of injuries. Quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs will both be out, dealing Chicago a huge pair of setbacks against the NFC North’s most accomplished team in recent years.
