NFL Week 15 Handicapping Tips

NFL Week 15 Match-Ups

With 14 weeks of games in the books a few pieces of the post season puzzle are in place and a few more will probably be in place after this week. Indianapolis, New Orleans, and Minnesota are in. San Diego, Cincinnati, Arizona, Philadelphia, and Green Bay can punch their ticket with a win and some help.


Denver, Jacksonville, and Dallas are currently in as potential wildcards but need to win to maintain their spot.

N.Y. Giants, Miami, Baltimore, and the N.Y. Jets are within striking distance but need some help. Atlanta, San Francisco, Tennessee, Houston, and Pittsburgh are still mathematically alive.

Here is a brief look at all the match ups with some keys to the game.

Thursday, Dec. 17

Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars, 8:20 p.m.

The Jaguar’s defense is currently ranked last in the league in sacks with just 14. The Colt’s have won six out the last eight games played in Jacksonville.

Saturday, Dec. 19

Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints, 8:20 p.m.

New Orleans’s #2 ranked rushing offense has been held to just 150 yards combined in their last two games. The Cowboy’s need a win to avoid a 13th straight losing record in the month of December.

Sunday, Dec. 20

Chicago Bears at Baltimore Ravens, 1 p.m.

Baltimore RB Ray Rice, who is averaging 5.4 yards per carry will face a Chicago defense that is currently ranked 24th against the run.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m.

New England has beaten Buffalo 12 straight times. Bill’s rookie safety, Jairus Byrd leads the league with nine interceptions this season.

Arizona Cardinals at Detroit Lions, 1 p.m.

Arizona can clinch their second straight NFC West title with a win and a 49er loss. Detroit’s defense is ranked dead last in points allowed (31.2), total yards allowed (400.5), and passing yards allowed (272.1).

Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m.

The loser of this game will take sole possession of last place in the AFC. This season Cleveland has been outscored by 157 points and Kansas City has been outscored by 136.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets, 1 p.m.

A key match in this game will be Jets CB Darrelle Revis against Falcons WR Roddy White. Without RB Michael Turner, Atlanta has averaged only 75 yards rushing in their last two games.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m.

San Francisco has lost five straight games on the road. Philadelphia WR DeSean Jackson’s 10 TD’s this year have all been on plays of at least 35 yards or longer.

Houston Texans at St. Louis Rams, 1 p.m.

Houston QB Matt Schaub needs 187 passing yards to go over 4000 for the year. The Rams are 0-6 this season and just 2-20 in the past three years at home.

Miami Dolphins at Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m.

Miami has won seven of the last nine games against Tennessee. Titan’s RB Chris Johnson needs 375 yards to go over 2000 for the season and is averaging 125 per game.

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos, 4:05 p.m.

Oakland will start fifth year veteran Charlie Frye at QB for the injured Brad Gradkowski. Back in week three, the Broncos rushed for 215 yards in a 23-3 win over the Raiders.

Cincinnati Bengals at San Diego Chargers, 4:05 p.m.

Cincinnati QB Carson Palmer has passed for only 424 yards combined in his last three games. San Diego has won 16 straight games in December, a new NFL record.

Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers, 4:15 p.m.

Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers has been sacked a league leading 48 times while Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger has been sacked 38 times which is third highest.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Seattle Seahawks, 4:15 p.m.

In his last two games Tampa’s rookie QB Josh Freeman has thrown eight interceptions and zero TD’s. In their four wins at home this season, Seattle has outscored their opponents by 54 points.

Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers, 8:20 p.m.

Minnesota’s WR Percy Harvin could miss this game, suffering from severe migraine headaches. In his 8th season as Carolina’s head coach, John Fox will most likely need a strong finish to save his job.

Monday, Dec. 21

New York Giants at Washington Redskins, 8:30 p.m.

New York has won six of their last seven games against Washington. Before their 31-13 win over Oakland last week, the Redskins lost their last three games by a combined seven points.

While there are several teams that still have a chance to make the playoffs, the pressure is mainly on Baltimore, Miami, N.Y. Jets, and the N.Y Giants to come away with a win for a chance to extend their season.
