USA TODAY Sports’ Week 9 NFL picks: Aaron Rodgers-Tom Brady showdown, Rams-Saints game highlight big weekend

USA TODAY Sports' forum of NFL experts may be facing a separation Sunday of sorts as the league serves up a smorgasbord of thrilling matchups.

The football world is looking forward to the second meeting of Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and New England's Tom Brady on Sunday night, even though the Patriots appear to be prohibitive favorites. The game of the weekend — maybe the season — could be Rams-Saints, and only Mike Jones foresees L.A. reaching 9-0 among our football oracles.

But the rest of the lineup offers quite a bit of disagreement: Steelers-Ravens, Jets-Dolphins, Falcons-Redskins, Chargers-Seahawks. This is a golden opportunity for Nate Davis or Lorenzo Reyes to pull away … or for Jarrett Bell, Mike Middlehurst-Schwartz or Jones to close in.

Buckle up and enjoy.
