By BARRY WILNER

KNOCKOUT POOL: Green Bay imported some snow to New Jersey and did right by us. This time we venture to the Lone Star state for the TEXANS.

No. 30 Detroit (plus 13) at No. 10 Minnesota

Vikings are super annoyed at losing tight games to good teams. Lions aren’t good.

BEST BET: VIKINGS, 33-10

No. 11 Tennessee (minus 3) at No. 17 Oakland

Last shot for Raiders to do something special before heading to Sin City.

UPSET SPECIAL: RAIDERS, 27-23

No. 6 (tie) Kansas City (plus 3 1-2) at No. 5 New England

If Patriots truly are in trouble, they will lose this one.

PATRIOTS, 20-17

No. 1 Baltimore (minus 6) at No. 9 Buffalo

Don’t underestimate Bills, who can stamp themselves as big-timers here.

RAVENS: 23-21

No. 2 Seattle (minus 1) at No. 12 Los Angeles Rams

Seahawks will stamp themselves as big-timers with this victory.

SEAHAWKS, 23-21

No. 3 San Francisco (plus 2 1-2) at No. 4 New Orleans

Tough schedule could plummet Niners from unbeaten to sixth seed.

SAINTS, 21-16

No. 13 Pittsburgh (minus 2) at No. 24 (tie) Arizona

Mike Tomlin is doing some of his best coaching work.

STEELERS, 20-16

No. 29 Washington (plus 13) at No. 6 (tie) Green Bay

Don’t be fooled by Washington’s consecutive wins. Packers won’t be.

PACKERS, 30-13

No. 20 Carolina (plus 3) at No. 28 Atlanta

Ron Rivera fired, Dan Quinn on hot seat. Go with …

FALCONS, 26-17

No. 26 Miami (plus 5 1-2) at No. 27 New York Jets

FitzMagic returns to Meadowlands. Wonder if he’ll be welcomed.

JETS, 22-20

No. 31 New York

Giants (plus 9) at

No. 18 Philadelphia

(Monday night)

Eli’s coming back? Won’t matter, though Eagles are struggling.

EAGLES, 30-16

No. 23 Denver (plus 9) at No. 8 Houston

Could be trap game for Houston between Patriots and Titans.

TEXANS, 20-18

No. 32 Cincinnati (plus 9) at No. 21 Cleveland

Cleveland already fell into trap of overconfidence (and revenge).

BROWNS, 29-24

No. 15 Indianapolis (plus 3) at

No. 19 Tampa Bay

Two very confounding squads. Colts desperately need this one.

COLTS, 26-23

No. 22 Los Angeles Chargers (minus 3)

at No. 24

(tie) Jacksonville

Chargers can’t get out of their own way, Jags have discord.

JAGUARS, 17-16
