Home / Commentary / STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 13


1. Chicago Bears

Chicago faces off against divisional foe Detroit this weekend. The Lions are a mess, Matthew Stafford has a hand injury and Kenny Golladay has missed the past two games. Their offense has become vanilla and stagnant as a result. The Bears should have no issues limiting Detroit’s scoring chances, and could force Stafford to commit a lot of turnovers.

2. Seattle Seahawks

Seattle has been relentlessly torched all season, allowing even average quarterbacks to look like hall-of-famers against them. However, things should start to improve for them as they get healthier on defense. Taking on the Giants should help them get back on track. Daniel Jones is known for giving the ball away, be it via interceptions or fumbles. Consider the Seahawks a high upside play this coming weekend.

3. Green Bay Packers

Using the Packers continues the trend of picking on the Eagles. Carson Wentz leads the league in turnovers, and Philadelphia simply cannot score points. Green Bay is bad against the run but has a solid secondary that thrives from turnovers. Sacks, interceptions, and fumbles are all on the table. Consider Green Bay a high floor, high upside play.

4. Las Vegas Raiders

Picking on the Jets has been a solid strategy throughout the season. Whether it’s Sam Darnold or Joe Flacco who gets the start, their offense is an embarrassment. They can’t score, and can hardly move the ball past midfield. The Raiders haven’t been great defensively, but should elevate their play against such a soft AFC opponent. Turnovers and sacks should happen easily, giving the Raiders unit some decent upside.
