The Steelers are still about eight-point favorites over the Raiders. Here’s how things are shaping up throughout the rest of the AFC, at least among teams that are at least on the periphery of the playoff picture.
The Jaguars are narrowly favored over the Browns, but don’t count Cleveland out – the Browns have shown they can take down very tough competition. The Ravens are about a ten-point favorite against the Panthers, which seems overly generous to the Panthers.
The Patriots are a three-point favorite over the Colts in yet another huge game for New England, and with two of football’s best offenses, this one could be a shootout. The Jets, meanwhile, are favored by about seven against the Texans, which seems reasonable – Houston is trying to avoid losing four in a row. The Titans, meanwhile, are favored by seven at home against a Redskins team that allowed 59 points against the Eagles last week.
