Green Bay Packers (6-1) at Carolina Panthers (7-0)

Graham Gano was able to kick two clutch field goals for the Panthers to secure a 29-26 overtime victory last week against the Indianapolis Colts to keep Carolina's undefeated record alive. As for the Packers, they're coming off their first loss of the season to the Denver Broncos in which Aaron Rodgers passed for just 77 yards.

St. Louis Rams (4-3) at Minnesota Vikings (5-2)
The head-to-head matchup of running backs Adrian Peterson, arguably the best in the NFL, and Todd Gurley, the sensational Rams rookie, will be one to watch this Sunday. Gurley has rushed for more than 125 yards in each of his first four career games. As for Peterson, he has rushed for 350 yards and three touchdowns in three career games against St. Louis. This game also could have playoff implications, as Minnesota is currently slotted for the second wild card spot in the NFC playoff race.

Washington Redskins (3-4) at New England Patriots (7-0)
In Week 7 against the Buccaneers, Kirk Cousins and the Redskins were able to come back from a 24-point deficit, the largest in franchise history, and defeat Tampa Bay. As for the Patriots, this is the first time the franchise has started 7-0 since 2007. In his past two games against Washington, Tom Brady has thrown for more than 660 yards and six touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski leads NFL tight ends in touchdown receptions, with seven.

Miami Dolphins (3-4) at Buffalo Bills (3-4)
In the first matchup between the two this season, the Bills dominated on both sides of the ball en route to a 41-14 victory in Miami. Buffalo is coming off a bye week, while the Dolphins are coming off a lopsided 36-7 loss to the Patriots. The game might be determined by Miami's running game, led by Lamar Miller. Against the Texans, Miller rushed for 175 yards in a 44-26 Dolphins win. However, in the loss to New England, Miller gained just 15 yards on the ground. If Buffalo can dominate the line of scrimmage like they had in the first game between the two teams this season, it could be a long day for the Dolphins.

Tennessee Titans (1-6) at New Orleans Saints (4-4)
Can the Saints follow up with an epic encore performance on offense in this contest? That will be the main question, as Drew Brees and New Orleans' high-powered attack will be looking to bring the team to over .500. On the other side will be rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota, who has missed the past two games due to a knee injury, but has overall shown promise. Mike Mularkey will get his first crack as the interim head coach for Tennessee.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5) at New York Jets (4-3)
The Jets started out on fire this season at 4-1, but have dropped their last two games on the road to the Patriots and Raiders, respectively. Ryan Fitzpatrick, despite suffering from ligament damage in his left thumb, will make the start for New York as they return to MetLife Stadium. As for the Jaguars, the wide receiver duo of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns has become a legitimate supplement to Blake Bortles and the team's passing attack. Robinson has six touchdowns on the season, while Hurns has scored a touchdown in each of Jacksonville's past five games.

Oakland Raiders (4-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4)
The red-hot Raiders travel to the Steel City led by a steady mix of youth and veterans. On offense, Oakland is led by quarterback Derek Carr, who has 15 touchdowns and just three interceptions in his past six games. For Pittsburgh, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has returned, but last week, the team lost Le'Veon Bell for the remainder of the season due to a horrific knee injury against the Bengals.

Atlanta Falcons (6-2) at San Francisco 49ers (2-6)
Blaine Gabbert will take over as the starting quarterback for the 49ers in this contest, but he faces an Atlanta team in the thick of the playoff race. For the Falcons, they are led by the three-headed monster of Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman, who leads the NFL with 1,062 scrimmage yards.

Denver Broncos (7-0) at Indianapolis Colts (3-5)
Peyton Manning heads to Lucas Oil Stadium once again to face his former team, where he is the franchise's all-time leading passer. In his last game against the Colts, Manning passed for 269 yards and three touchdowns. However, for the Broncos, it's been the defense that has driven the team, drawing comparisons to the 2000 Baltimore Ravens and 2013 Seattle Seahawks defenses, both of which were Super Bowl champions. The Colts have struggled on both sides of the ball, which ended up costing offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton his job.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Dallas Cowboys (2-5)
In an NFC East battle, the Cowboys will look to right the ship as they've lost their last five games. They'll face former Dallas running back DeMarco Murray for the first time since he signed with Philadelphia in free agency. Dez Bryant, who returned from a broken foot last week, has seven touchdowns in the past six meetings between the two teams, including three touchdowns in the last matchup between the division rivals.
