NFL Week 15 is here, which means there are only a few weeks left in the NFL regular season…..
Let’s get you prepped on the big games this week – guess what – there are quite a few…..
Dallas (10-3) @ Buffalo (7-6) 4:25 PM EST (On Sunday):
Ah yes, the Cowboys are the team that everyone is talking about right now.
The victory over the Eagles last Sunday has Dallas fans in absolute delirium over the thought of making it to a Super Bowl.
We have all seen this before, so let’s see how the Cowboys react this week.
Next up on the slate is a team that NO ONE wants to face right now – the Buffalo Bills.
Buffalo is coming off a MASSIVE win over the Kansas City Chiefs, and one the Bills desperately needed to have.
The early season losses have put the Bills in a tough position to make the playoffs.
Buffalo will likely need to win out to make the postseason, so this weeks game against Dallas is another big one.
The Bills come in as -2 favorites for this one.
Baltimore (10-3) @ Jacksonville (8-5) 8:20 PM EST (On Sunday):
Can anyone stop the Ravens?
The Jags will get a chance to take down one of the hottest teams in the NFL, on Sunday Night Football no less.
After an 8-3 start, Jacksonville has dropped the last two, primarily because Trevor Lawrence has been dealing with an injury.
Lawrence, and the rest of the Jags will have to play better if they want any chance of knocking off the Baltimore Ravens.
Baltimore is a -3 favorite for this one.
Philadelphia (10-3) @ Seattle (6-7) 8:15 PM EST (On Monday):
Talk about two teams who BADLY need a win.
The Eagles seem to have regressed this season – they have gone from being a REALLY good team to being a good team.
Philly has dropped the last two against two of the better teams in the NFL – San Francisco and Dallas.
In order to guarantee a repeat as NFC East Champs the Eagles will have to win out from here.
Up next is a tough matchup against the Seahawks in Seattle.
Like Philadelphia, Seattle is BADLY due a win.
The Seahawks have lost 4 straight and 5 of 6.
Also, Seattle tends to play much better at home, so this will be a tough matchup for Philly.
The Eagles are a -3 favorite in what is a PIVOTAL game for both teams.
Denver (7-6) @ Detroit (9-4) 8:15 PM EST (On Saturday):
We have some Saturday NFL games, and this is the best game out of the 3 game slate.
Denver and Detroit seem to be heading in different directions.
Denver has built real optimism following a less than impressive opening portion of the season.
In fact, the Broncos have won 6 of 7 and have a chance to make the playoffs.
On the other side, the Lions have been shaky of late.
Detroit started the season out great, but Jared Goff has been struggling recently, which has meant the Lions have lost 2 of 3 (and were lucky it is not 3 of 4).
The good news for Detroit is Goff tends to play much better at home, so the Lions will hope they can get back on track against the Broncos.
Detroit is a -4.5 favorite in this one.
Tampa Bay (6-7) @ Green Bay (6-7) 1:00 PM EST (On Sunday):
Why is a matchup of two 6-7 teams so important?
Because playoff spots are up for grabs in this one.
Tampa Bay currently leads the NFC South, so another win would help boost their chances of hosting a playoff game.
Green Bay currently occupies the 7th seed in the NFC and a win here would boost their chances of keeping that spot.
So, despite each team’s record there is a lot at stake as the Packers head in as -3.5 favorites.
