San Diego (13-2) has Arizona Sunday, while Buffalo visits (12-3) Baltimore.
"I don't think you need to stress over San Diego requiring the week off, เว็บคาสิโน ยอดนิยม however the Chargers are under the lights and presumably will see the other score come in before their game beginnings," White proceeded.
"Indy's staggered of late, indeed, yet the Chargers, Ravens and Colts are as yet 1-2-3 in the AFC.

"The Miami kids will need to play hard for Larry Coker, who has been terminated," he noted.

"Would boise be able to State endure?"
In Friday undertakings, White predicts the Kentucky-Clemson Music Bowl just as the Minnesota-Texas Tech Insight Bowl will be high scoring, that a very much instructed Missouri group will whip Oregon State straight in the Sun Bowl and that longshot Houston has more to demonstrate in the Liberty Bowl than South Carolina.
White calls the Wisconsin-Arkansas Citrus Bowl a spectacular blending that is a genuine cliffhanger and discloses to Georgia Tech fans to keep their Gator Bowl trusts alive, notwithstanding losing beginning quarterback Reggie Ball to scholarly ineligibilty.
Rival West Virginia has gone from a score top pick to short 11 focuses.
"Taylor Bennett, the reinforcement, is really a superior passer," White said.
Players looking for a defeat may take a gander at Saturday's Navy-Boston College Meineke Car Care Bowl, where the Middies are getting 7.
