JETS (2-4) @ FALCONS (4-2)

Time, TV, Line -- 9 p.m., Chs. 2, 7, Falcons by 7

Trends -- Two of the worst rushing defenses in the league will attempt to stem the tide in a battle of running backs. The Jets' Curtis Martin takes aim at Atlanta's No. 28 rush defense, and Warrick Dunn goes after the Jets 27th-ranked rush defense.

Attractions -- It'll be a contrast in styles at quarterback, where Vinny Testaverde of the Jets is the classic drop-back passer and Atlanta's Michael Vick is the ultimate freelancer. Testaverde is 16 years older than Vick.

Ken Murray's pick -- Falcons, 24-17

TOP MATCHUPS

EAGLES (4-2) @BRONCOS (5-2) -- The Broncos face their third NFC East team in four weeks. With the pass-happy Eagles, they at least know what is coming.

CHIEFS (4-2) @CHARGERS (3-4) -- The Chargers are officially desperate after losing a winnable interconference game in Philadelphia yesterday. Back in their division, they get a well-rested Kansas City team next.
