Minnesota’s Favre has two fractures in his ankle, but may be able to play through the pain at New England and keep his consecutive game streak alive. Tarvaris Jackson is the backup and he could be an improvement the way Favre is playing. There’s no spread listed right now.
Dallas’ Romo is out 6-8 weeks with a broken collarbone. Jon Kitna is the backup and the 38-year-old veteran has seen better days. The Cowboys are teetering on collapse at 1-5, but they’re still 6 ½-point home favorites over Jacksonville.
The Jaguars have their own quarterback problems as both David Garrard and backup Trent Edwards missed last week at Kansas City. Todd Bouman filled in. Garrard is expected back this week from his concussion.

Matthew Stafford, Detroit quarterback
Stafford hurt his shoulder in the opening week and hasn’t played since. He’s expected back this week against Washington, which will be good for team morale. The Lions are surprising 2 ½-point favorites in Motown.
Alex Smith, San Francisco quarterback
Smith (shoulder) will not play this week against Denver in London, England. Coach Mike Singletary has instead decided to go with third-string Troy Smith over backup David Carr. The 49ers are 1 ½-point favorites against the Broncos.
Max Hall, Arizona quarterback
