Banged-up Texans got possible season-defining win last week. Jags impressed against Ravens.

TEXANS, 26-13

Minnesota (plus 3 1/2) at Carolina

Newton vs. Ponder. Go with the more-veteran rookie.

PANTHERS, 27-16

New Orleans (OFF) at St. Louis

Too bad this is off the board (Sam Bradford’s injury); would’ve been Best Bet.

SAINTS, 38-13

Detroit (OFF) at Denver

No line because of Matthew Stafford’s right ankle injury. Shaun Hill is a decent backup.

LIONS, 23-20
