Philadelphia at Tampa Bay (-9, 47.5)

The Buccaneers have damaged their playoff chances after dropping two straight games, but the Eagles are now residing at the bottom of a canyon following eight consecutive losses. Eagles coach Andy Reid has declared rookie QB Nick Foles as the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season. Philadelphia's troubles led to Reid firing defensive line coach Jim Washburn earlier in this week. He was replaced by Tommy Brasher, who held the job under Reid from 1999-2005 prior to retiring. The Bucs are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six overall.

St. Louis at Buffalo (-3, 42)

St. Louis shocked San Francisco in overtime last week, marking the second time this season the Rams took the powerful 49ers into extra time. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins has scored three TDs in the past two games, more than the Rams offense has generated. Quarterback Sam Bradford remains inconsistent and his top target, Danny Amendola, is once again questionable with a foot injury. The Bills gained a season-best 232 rushing yards last Sunday vs. the Jags to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. A once-porous defense has also improved. In the past three weeks Buffalo has allowed just 244.0 yards per game. The Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.

LINE MOVES

New Orleans Saints at New York Giants

Line moves: Giants opened at minus-4.5, now minus-5
Books says: "The Giants once had a commanding division lead and now have teams breathing down their necks. The biggest thing is [Drew] Brees has looked pretty pedestrian. The real trend to keep in mind here is that in the last 30 nondivisional home games, the Giants are 21-9 with the over. The over in this game is 53."
