Time: 1:00pm ET

Time: 4:05pm ET
Spread: Denver – 9.5
Over/Under: 43

Time: 4:15pm ET
Spread: Atlanta – 1

Spread: New York -3
Over/Under: 42

Clinton Portis, banged up with an injury played sparingly on Sunday, picking up 68 rushing yards. The Seahawks have had a very frustrating season, at 2-8 and at the bottom of the NFC West. Matt Hasslebeck came back after missing several games with an injury. In his come back, Hasslebeck threw for 170 yards, but Seattle’s top running back Julius Jones picked up just 19 yards rushing; leading the team.

Indianapolis Colts (6-4) @ San Diego Chargers (4-6)
Time: 8:15pm ET
Spread: San Diego – 2.5
Over/Under: 50.5
Preview: The Indianapolis Colts picked up a 33-27 win over the Houston Texans, moving themselves to 6-4 on the year.

The Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, coming off preseason surgery has completed 234 of 380 passes for 2568 yards and 17 touchdowns. In the win on Sunday Reggie Wayne caught 90 passing yards from Manning. The San Diego Chargers have been arguably the most disappointing team in the NFL in 2008.
