A look at today's NFL games

GAME OF THE DAY VIKINGS-PACKERS, 4:15 p.m. WHERE: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wis. TV/CREW: Fox, Channel 13 (Thom Brennaman, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver)
ABOUT THE VIKINGS: Win No. 90 at Lambeau Field would be very special for Brett Favre, who is playing superb football. ABOUT THE PACKERS: With QB Aaron Rodgers and an opportunistic defense, Green Bay is feeling good about its playoff chances. KEY STAT: Vikings DE Jared Allen posted 4.5 sacks against the Packers a month ago. KEY MATCHUP: Vikings WR Sidney Rice vs. CB Charles Woodson. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Vikings, 20-17 BRONCOS-RAVENS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Kyle Orton has thrown only one interception for the unbeaten Broncos and he's been brilliant in the fourth quarter. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Ravens, 21-16 TEXANS-BILLS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Houston QB Matt Schaub is quietly amassing a spectacular season. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Texans, 31-13 BROWNS-BEARS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: If last week's humiliating effort at Cincinnati doesn't rouse these Bears, Lovie Smith is in big trouble. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Bears, 20-7 SEAHAWKS-COWBOYS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Tony Romo usually gets hot in November and the Dallas offense is starting to roll behind WR Miles Austin. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Cowboys, 41-17 RAMS-LIONS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: These two clubs could be vying with the Bucs for the first pick in the 2010 draft. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Lions, 17-13 49ERS-COLTS 1 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: QB Alex Smith looked sharp in relief for SF last week, but good luck keeping pace with Peyton Manning. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Colts, 30-20 DOLPHINS-JETS 1 p.m.; CBS, Ch. 10 WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This divisional rivalry between the two most prolific ground games in the league will likely be decided by young QBs on both sides. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Jets, 21-17 GIANTS-EAGLES 1 p.m.; Fox, Ch. 13 WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: After back-to-back setbacks, the Giants are in danger of tumbling out of the NFC East lead. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Giants, 20-10 RAIDERS-CHARGERS 4:05 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: After beating the Eagles and losing 38-0 to the Jets, who knows which Oakland team will show up today? IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Chargers, 24-7 JAGUARS-TITANS 4:05 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Look for some fierce booing from the home crowd in Nashville if Tennessee slides to 0-7 this afternoon. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Titans, 24-21 PANTHERS-CARDS 4:15 p.m. WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: The last time Jake Delhomme saw Arizona, he was swallowed whole by the Cardinals defense. IRA KAUFMAN'S CALL: Cardinals, 27-16 Last week: 8-5. Season record: 72-31.
