Banged-up Texans got possible season-defining win last week. Jags impressed against Ravens.
Minnesota (plus 3 1/2) at Carolina
Newton vs. Ponder. Go with the more-veteran rookie.
New Orleans (OFF) at St. Louis
Too bad this is off the board (Sam Bradford’s injury); would’ve been Best Bet.
Detroit (OFF) at Denver
No line because of Matthew Stafford’s right ankle injury. Shaun Hill is a decent backup.
