The San Diego Chargers can take down the undefeated Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but is Philip Rivers up to the challenge?

Week 9 of the NFL season could see the last undefeated team, the Green Bay Packers, go down in defeat. But will Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers be able to pull off the upset? Also, will the Oakland Raiders complete the season sweep of the Denver Broncos? Full predictions below:

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (-1) - The Bills get their first crack at the AFC East since they pulled off the 34-31 upset against the Patriots in September. This is going to be an extremely close game. BILLS

Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys (-11.5) - With either Tarvaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback, it's been a struggle recently to score points. COWBOYS

Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts (+7) - This line is small, but easy to overcome for the Falcons. It's just a really long season for the Colts. FALCONS

Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs (-4) - The Dolphins have all kinds of woes this season and they're facing a Chiefs team that has won four straight games since starting out 0-3. CHIEFS

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints (-9) - After a loss to the St. Louis Rams, the Saints will want to come out and destroy the Bucs. Will they be able to? BUCCANEERS

Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans (-3) - The Titans snapped a two-game losing streak by defeating the Colts, but Chris Johnson is still a non-factor. Will Javon Ringer be able to run his way through the Bengals' No. 2 rush defense? BENGALS

Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders (-9) - Tim Tebow returns to the site of his first career NFL start, which he lost. It's going to be even tougher to win this one, even if Raiders running back Darren McFadden is out for the game. RAIDERS

New York Giants at New England Patriots (-9) - The Giants have won their last three games by three points twice and by four points. Those games were against the Bills, the Cards and the Dolphins. It's going to a tough game against the Patriots. PATRIOTS

St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals (-3.5) - It's a battle between 1-6 teams. The Rams didn't win when Sam Bradford was out, but having him back would certainly go a long way to making this Rams squad a two-win team. RAMS

Green Bay Packers at San Diego Chargers (+5.5) - Time for the Packers to join the ranks of the defeated? Not yet. PACKERS

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) - After an embarrassing loss to the Ravens to start the season, the Steelers have won six of their last seven games. They just beat the Patriots, which was no small task. STEELERS

Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles (-9) - Did the Eagles finally turn a corner with their 34-7 victory over the Cowboys last week? BEARS
