Sam Farmer, Los Angeles Times on

Published in Football

The Los Angeles Times' NFL writer, Sam Farmer, examines this week's matchups. Lines according to (O/U = over/under). Last week's record 13-3 (.813); season 132-75-1 (.638). Using point spreads with the scores Farmer predicted, the record against the spread last week would have been 11-4-1 (.733); season 111-92-5 (.547). Times are Eastern.

New England Patriots (10-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (1-12)

Sunday, 1 p.m.

TV: None. DirecTV: 705.

Line: Patriots by 4. O/U: 401/2.

Getting embarrassed once a season is one thing, but it seems every time the Patriots face a decent opponent, they struggle. The one-win Bengals aren't as horrible as their record suggests.


Prediction: Patriots 27, Bengals 21

Denver Broncos (5-8) at Kansas City Chiefs (9-4)

Sunday, 1 p.m.

TV: None. DirecTV: 706.
