BEST BETS

HA: SEA (-6.5)

It appears to me that the Panthers will be phoning it in the final three weeks, while the Seahawks are still very much in a late-season drive to capture the NFC West and possibly the first or second seed. I don't love the coast-to-coast trip or the possibility they could be looking ahead to the 49ers at home the last day of the season, but with Arizona next Sunday there's no reason to be looking ahead.

AA: NE (-10)

On to Cincinnati, and onward and upward for the Patriots offense, finally, against an opponent they should dominate. Irrespective of whether the Patriots football folks were truly unaware of the organizaton's latest video controversy, the Bengals aren't equipped defensively to keep Tom Brady down any longer. He'll get help in the pass game beyond Julian Edelman, as well as from a defense likely to provide a few extra possessions to start finding solutions for this broken offense before it's too late.
