New Orleans Saints at Jets, 1 p.m., CBS

Line: Saints -6 | Total: 43.5

Taysom Hill is set to start quarterback again for the Saints (5-7) and play through a finger injury. New Orleans is also hoping to reunite with running back Alvin Kamara, who missed four games with a knee injury. If Hill can reduce his turnovers (he threw four interceptions against the Cowboys), the Saints should beat the Jets (3-9), who lost Corey Davis, the team’s second-best receiver, to end-of-season abdominal muscle surgery. A loss to the Jets, however, would be unacceptable for New Orleans. To take: Saints -6

Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m., Fox

Line: Panthers -3 | Total: 43.5

After starting 3-0, the Panthers (5-7) struggled offensively, ranking 24th in runs per game (19.7) and 29th in yards per game (308.7). It is unlikely to improve as their best weapon, running back Christian McCaffrey, has been placed on the injured list with an ankle injury.

The ineffectiveness prompted coach Matt Rhule to fire offensive coordinator Joe Brady, who was seen the last offseason as a thriving head coach candidate. Despite the Panthers’ offensive woes, the Carolina defense, which ranks second for the fewest yards allowed, should be able to contain the Falcons (5-7), whose offense relies on just three players – receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, tight end Kyle Pitts and quarterback Matt Ryan. Neither team is likely to advance to the playoffs, but in an NFC South rivalry, Carolina should have bragging rights after this one. To take: Panthers -3

Seattle Seahawks vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m., Fox

Line: Seahawks -7.5 | Total: 42.5

Why would you want to watch this game, let alone bet on it?

The Seahawks (4-8) have disappointed considerably this season and have become one of the worst teams in the league in attack and defense. The Texans (2-10) were as bad as expected. Journeyman Houston quarterback Tyrod Taylor was benched for rookie Davis Mills in a resounding loss to the Foals, and coach David Culley has said he will “assess everything” regarding the passer who will start for the remainder of the season.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, have signed future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson to revive a rushed pedestrian attack, and are motivated to end the season strong. It’s tempting to gain the upper hand, but Houston’s holistic performances have been so poor that Seattle, despite its many offensive gaps, is expected to cover. To take: Seahawks -7.5
