2014 nfl season previews week 15

Well there are only three weeks left in the 2014 regular season (sad, I know), and no team has clinched a playoff berth yet this season. There are multiple 2 win teams, and multiple 9 plus win teams. It’s a weird season. Well, here’s Week 15:

Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs: The Raiders shocked the world by beating the Chiefs the first time they met, but that’s not happening at Arrowhead. The spread is pretty high in the Chiefs favor, so maybe the Raiders can at least beat that. Chiefs win.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens are a pretty good team this season. The Jaguars are…well, the Jaguars. Needless to say, the Ravens have no problem getting the victory at home. Ravens win.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Atlanta Falcons: Atlanta showed the world what they can do when their offense is pumping. If they hadn’t done so poorly in the first half, the Falcons would have pulled the upset of the year. Well, suddenly they look good, and Pittsburgh is coming off a huge win over the Bengals and probably a little cocky. I’m taking the upset, Falcons win.

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck has started slow the past few weeks, so if that continues a sack or five from J.J. Watt could certainly give the Texans a nice halftime lead. However, the Colts always get it going eventually; so they’ll win it in the end, especially at home.

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns: The Browns defense dominated the Bengals in Cincinnati; and with Johnny Manziel making his first career start in Cleveland in front of an energetic fan base that has been waiting for this day, the Browns should have no problem outscoring the Bengals. Browns win.

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots: As long as Tom Brady doesn’t screw this up (which is hard to do with Rob Gronkowski on the field, but never doubt Brady’s ability to suck), the Dolphins have no chance. The Dolphins are an average team, the Patriots are great. Patriots win.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers: The Panthers are feeling good coming off the 31 point blowout victory in New Orleans. Cam Newton is out, but he’s okay after the crash. The Panthers are feeling good for the first time in a while, so they’ll have no problem dismantling the weak Bucs. Panthers win.

Washington Redskins at New York Giants: Tom Coughlin doesn’t lose without a fight. Both teams suck, but at least the Giants are playing inspired. Oh, and the Giants have a quarterback. Giants win.

Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills: The Bills are still fighting hard for a playoff slot. Here’s the upset of the week: Aaron Rodgers is very stoppable despite what people seem to think. The Buffalo defense is fantastic. At home, in front of the passionate fans, the Bills get it done.

Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions: So the Vikings are 6-7. Didn’t even realize that. Not good enough for the 9-4 Lions however. The Lions defense is fantastic, and the Vikings barely have an offense. Lions win.

New York Jets at Tennessee Titans: Both teams suck, but at least Rex Ryan has his team inspired. Here’s a chance for Geno Smith to prove that he actually has “Pro-Bowl caliber flashes.” I don’t buy it, but either way the Jets win.

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers: There is something physically wrong with Peyton Manning according to sources close to and inside of the Broncos. The Broncos would be lucky to go 6-10 with literally any other quarterback. The running game has emerged, so hopefully that’s enough to sling the Broncos passed the Chargers with minimal passing. Broncos win.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks: I think we’d all like to see the 49ers go into Seattle and stomp all over the Seahawks and Richard Sherman, but it’s just not going to happen. Losing this game will knock San Francisco out of the playoffs, and Seattle would love to have that honor. Seahawks win.

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles: Eagles blasted the Cowboys in Dallas, so expect the same in Philly. A win here could be enough to clinch the division for the Eagles, and Chip Kelly would love to win it against Dallas. Eagles win.

New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears: The Saints are 5-8 but still in the division hunt. The Bears suck. Jay Cutler will probably throw a pick six against the Saints pitiful defense. Saints win.
