Gregg Rosenthal's power pick: Bills over Vikings. I'm strangely convinced Buffalo is a quality team that is better than its record indicates. Minnesota won't be able to stop the Bills' pass rush or run on their defensive line.

Marc Sessler's power pick: Bills over Vikings. Buffalo's beastly defensive front against Minnesota's overwhelmed pass protection? I like that kind of party.

Chris Wesseling's power pick: Colts over Bengals. The Colts have won four in a row with Andrew Luck playing as well as any quarterback and the defense is showing major improvement. The Bengals aren't nearly as reliable away from Paul Brown Stadium.

Dan Hanzus' power pick: Saints over Lions. This is the week when the Saints start to look like Super Bowl contenders again. The Lions won't be able to keep up with Drew Brees without Calvin Johnson.

Kevin Patra's power pick: Chargers over Chiefs. Home team that knows it needs to rack up division wins to leap past the Broncos later in the season.
