Every Sunday, Kevin Cusick makes his predictions against the latest Las Vegas point spread, the way God intended …

Cowboys at Vikings (+1):

Gloves that the Vikings’ Justin Jefferson wore during last Sunday’s classic victory in Buffalo will be displayed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In Canton, they will join other historic Vikings artifacts such as Jim Marshall’s wrong-way cleats, Fran Tarkenton’s helmet and Onterrio Smith’s Whizzinator. Pick: Cowboys by 3

Commanders at Texans (+2½):

Washington handed the unbeaten Eagles their first loss Monday night thanks to a couple of questionable officiating calls. The striped crew would have faced severe discipline from the league had they not been overshadowed by the incompetents officiating the Vikings-Bills game. Pick: Commanders by 5

Jets at Patriots (-2½):

If the season ended today, these two teams would be playoff bound along with the entire AFC East Division. It’s just as Nostradamus predicted as his pre-Armageddon pick in 1554 on MIddle Age FanDuel. Pick: Jets by 3

Panthers at Ravens (-12½):

Estranged quarterback Baker Mayfield became a viral hit by head-butting his helmeted teammates with his bare brow near the end of their Week 10 victory. Carolina coach Steve Wilks then named Mayfield the starter, an indication that Wilks also has suffered too many blows to the head. Pick: Ravens by 20

Browns at Bills (-9½):

Sunday’s game was moved to Detroit because of a snowmageddon heading to Buffalo with up to 4 feet of snow. This means the Bills will have to spend consecutive weeks playing in Detroit, which is considered a great step up only for people who live in Buffalo. Pick: Bills by 11

Lions at Giants (-3½):

New York coach Brian Daboll apologized after being caught on camera directing a fiery rant at his offensive linemen during last Sunday’s game. Folks who know Daboll well say they haven’t seen him that upset since he first noticed he was losing his hair, back in the sixth grade. Pick: Giants by 3

Eagles at Colts (+7½):

Former ESPN analyst Jeff Saturday got back at his many critics by winning his first game as Indy’s interim coach. His triumph has so changed the landscape that, if the Eagles manage to lose their second in a row, Philly coach Nick Sirianni will end up being replaced by Mina Kimes Pick: Eagles by 11

49ers vs Cardinals (+7½):

Monday night’s NFC West showdown will take place in front of 87,000 fans in Mexico City. In honor of this special setting, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray plans to curse out his coach, Kliff Kingsbury, only in Spanish. Pick: 49ers by 3

Rams at Saints (-3½):

Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp could miss the rest of the season after undergoing ankle surgery. So this means he will likely have an even less positive impact on the Rams’ final six games than Aaron Donald has had on the first nine. Pick: Rams by 3

Raiders at Broncos (-2½):

Raiders owner Mark Davis praised embattled coach Josh McDaniels, saying he’s doing a great job despite Las Vegas’ sad 2-7 record. Such a vote of confidence from Davis is rare as he usually saves such praise for the blind man who cuts his hair. Pick: Broncos by 3
