CAN'T MISS

SEAHAWKS (3-1) AT STEELERS (3-1)

11 a.m.

This is a rematch of Super Bowl XL and not many of the characters have changed. The outcome won't change, either.

PREDICTION: Steelers, 21-10

LIONS (3-1) AT REDSKINS (2-1)

11 a.m.

Jon Kitna predicted the Lions would win 10 games this season. Nobody's snickering now, not after beating the Bears.

PREDICTION: Lions, 30-27

BEARS (1-3) AT PACKERS (4-0)

6:15 p.m.

At least the Bears have a decent excuse: Seven injured defensive starters are missing. The Packers haven't started 5-0 since 1965.

PREDICTION: Packers, 31-17

WORTH WATCHING

BROWNS (2-2) AT PATRIOTS (4-0)

11 a.m.

The Browns would really be convincing if they beat the Patriots. But you can't beat the way QB Tom Brady is throwing. PREDICTION: Patriots, 34-14

JAGUARS (2-1) AT CHIEFS (2-2)

11 a.m.

Chiefs QB Damon Huard is 7-0 as a starter at home. And the Chiefs have a bounce in their step after beating the Chargers.

PREDICTION: Chiefs, 23-20

PANTHERS (2-2) AT SAINTS (0-3)

11 a.m.

If the bye week didn't help cure the Saints' problems, the Panthers will. Carolina, though, has won the past three meetings.

PREDICTION: Saints, 30-20

JETS (1-3) AT GIANTS (2-2)

11 a.m.

After registering 12 sacks against Donovan McNabb, the Giants have just one word for Chad Pennington: Duck!

PREDICTION: Giants, 17-13

BUCCANEERS (3-1) AT COLTS (4-0)

2 p.m.

The Colts are trying to start 5-0 for the third year in a row and win a club-record 12th consecutive game at home.

PREDICTION: Colts, 27-20

RAVENS (2-2) AT 49ERS (2-2)

2:15 p.m.

Trent Dilfer won 11 in a row, including Super Bowl XXXV, when he was with the Ravens. That won't happen with the 49ers.

PREDICTION: Ravens, 20-9

FAST FORWARD

DOLPHINS (0-4) AT TEXANS (2-2)

11 a.m.

LB Joey Porter guaranteed the Dolphins would beat the Raiders. He has as many correct predictions as sacks.

PREDICTION: Texans, 24-16

CARDINALS (2-2) AT RAMS (0-4)

11 a.m.

The Cardinals have had just one winning season since they moved from St. Louis. After beating the Steelers, maybe this will be No. 2.

PREDICTION: Cardinals, 23-20

FALCONS (1-3) AT TITANS (2-1)

11 a.m.

Since losing his first two games as a starter, Vince Young and the Titans are 10-4. They've also won the past four versus Atlanta.

PREDICTION: Titans, 34-12

CHARGERS (1-3) AT BRONCOS (2-2)

2:15 p.m.

What's wrong with the Chargers? Not injuries. Not free-agent defections. Two words: Norv Turner.

PREDICTION: Broncos, 24-23
