28 Kansas City Chiefs 28 Bearded ex-coach can now be mall Santa.

29 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 Things are even worse than they seemed.

30 Cleveland Browns 29 You can’t go to war with water pistols.

32 Indianapolis Colts 32 Well on their way to infamy.

THURSDAY NIGHT PICK

Jaguars (4-9) at Falcons (8-5)

LINE: ATLANTA BY 11

Don’t be fooled by Jacksonville’s 41-point outburst against the Buccaneers as Tampa’s seven turnovers aided that win which included 28 second-quarter points off of miscues. Now the offensively challenged Jaguars, a team that had not scored more than 20 points all year before last weekend, must travel on a short week to play one of the league’s strongest home sides. The Falcons are in a battle for a playoff spot and with their passing game clicking and Jacksonville’s injured secondary to take advantage of, this one can easily get out of hand.

TAKING: FALCONS –11
