Week 14 Predictions

Russell-wilson_20161122012029044_6653015_ver1.0_640_360Week 13 was a strong one for my predictions all-around and included picking the exact score for the Giants/Raiders game. With only a handful of teams eliminated from postseason contention, we have another week full of very intriguing matchups featuring teams who would be in the playoffs at this time or still have aspirations. With a full slate of games, it should give us as fans plenty to watch.

Last week: 12-4, Season: 123-69

Last week against the spread: 10-6, Season: 98-94

Game of the weak: Bears vs Bengals: The Bengals at 5-7 are technically still alive in the playoff push, but it would require winning out and a lot of luck to achieve. For whatever reason, the Bears seem to be regressing and last week were simply dominated in time of possession which played a part in their inability to get a running game going. The Bengals have some key injuries on defense, but I’m not sure if the Bears have enough to keep up if Andy Dalton and company heat up early. Bears 16 Bengals (-6.5) 23

Game of the week: Seahawks vs Jaguars: This game might not have the most playoff implications, but it’s a fantastic test for a Jaguar team that has many qualities you’d like in a Super Bowl contender. On top of that, this is probably the biggest regular season game the franchise has hosted in quite some time, so the atmosphere could really be something. The main matchup I and so many others will be watching in this one is the wizardry of Russell Wilson against the Jaguar defense.

Wilson every week seems to pull off one or two plays that seem improbable. Between their ability to get to opposing quarterbacks and speed at linebacker, this defense will be his biggest test. The same goes for the Jaguars as a whole. If they’re for real (which I think they are), taking care of business at home against a team who perennially has been in the thick of their respective conference is a great way to show it. Seahawks 13 Jaguars (-2.5) 16

Cowboys 23 Giants (+3.5) 21

Packers 23 Browns (+3.5) 17

49ers 21 Texans (-2.5) 16

Vikings 23 Panthers (+2.5) 20

Colts 17 Bills (-3.5) 20

Lions 23 Buccaneers (-0.5) 27

Raiders 24 Chiefs (-4.5) 28

Redskins 16 Chargers (-6.5) 26

Jets 24 Broncos (+1.5) 20

Titans 21 Cardinals (+3.5) 17

Eagles 21 Rams (-2.5) 27

Ravens 21 Steelers (-5.5) 26

Patriots 34 Dolphins (+11.5) 20
