Overall record = 65-27
Thursday Night Football
JAC Jaguars @ ATL Falcons
Normally this would be a relatively easy matchup to decide, but after last week’s blowout against Tampa, the Jags shouldn’t be taken lightly. Despite the Jags 4-9 record they still have a top 10 defence and Maurice Jones-Drew is currently leading the NFL in rushing yards.
At one stage it looked like Atlanta may fall to the Carolina Panthers, but Matt Ryan and the Falcons offence managed to find their groove to score 24 unanswered points to earn the victory. If Atlanta wants to hold onto the division title then they need to win all of their remaining games or hope the Saints suffer a major collapse.
Dbl Coverage prediction: Atlanta to win by 10.

DAL Cowboys @ TB Buccaneers
Oh Dallas, why do you always do this? Up by two scores with less than 3.14 remaining in the game, the Cowboys had the opportunity to claim a two game lead in the NFC East, but Romo and the Cowboys do what they did best and went on to lose the game. The fifth time Dallas has lost a game after leading in the fourth quarter this year...
Somehow Tampa managed to find a way to get blown out against Jacksonville. It seems that the Bucs have finally hit rock bottom which could be a plus as from now on the only way can be up. If Tampa wants to get back to winning ways then Josh Freeman will have to find his form from the 2010 season.
