Playbook picks: Cowboys to roll right past Vikings

NFL Network’s Playbook analysts like the Cowboys to knock off the host Vikings, and the Colts to fend off the Ravens, but there are differing opinions on the other two games.

Brian Baldinger and Michael Lombardi (filling in for Sterling Sharpe) expect the Saints to win, but Joe Theismann predicts a victory by the Cardinals. Baldinger, meanwhile, is on his own in thinking the Jets can upset the Chargers.

This week, Playbook will not air based on conference games, but rather based on the date. The show about the two Saturday games (Cardinals-Saints, Ravens-Colts) will air on Thursday at 6 p.m. ET, while the show about the two Sunday games (Cowboys-Vikings, Jets-Chargers) will air on Friday at 6 p.m. ET.
