Every game this week is a "must win." OK, not really, but there are some contests that will go a long way in determining who gets to play well into January. Falcons-Panthers, Broncos-Chiefs, and Bengals-Steelers are all big division games. The Eagles still aren't out of it, but they'll have to play the Seahawks. And the Texans-Ravens matchup could very easily be renamed the Leinart/Bush Bowl. All that's missing is cousin Eddie and his dickie.

The Cowboys invited better guests, as their game against the Broncos is one of the week's highlights. The Giants have protection issues, the Steelers have injury issues, and Trent Dilfer has a hissyfit in this week's rundown.
