49ers @ Chargers – San Francisco is once again faintly in the picture in the NFC West. However, they’ll face a tough game in San Diego on a short week. It appears that the Chargers are back in a groove after a loss to Oakland. I like the Chargers as an option this week in a rare third straight home game.


Bills @ Dolphins – Miami has been terrible at home this season, but great on the road. Buffalo is playing better now than in the beginning of the season, but these two played a close one in their first matchup. Avoid.

Eagles @ Giants – NFC East rivalry with a lot on the line. Stay away.

Redskins @ Cowboys – Another NFC East rivalry…this one, however, does not have much on the line.

Browns @ Bengals – Tough one to call since Cincinnati has to get a win sometime. Cleveland has played better this year, but just lost a boring game to Buffalo. Pass.

Jaguars @ Colts – Huge game for Jacksonville as they can almost lock up the AFC South, which has been dominated by the Colts for the past decade. However, it won’t be easy in Indianapolis. Colts are a potential option depending on your choices in Week 15.

Texans @ Titans – Here’s yet another divisional game this week (there are eight total this weekend). Too tough to call.

Saints @ Ravens – A great NFC-AFC battle as both teams appear to be headed for an unfortunate wildcard spot. Avoid.

Chiefs @ Rams – If Matt Cassel is out again, this could be a sneaky pick. St. Louis has played decent football this season and they return home after three straight road games. Keep an eye on the injury report.

Cardinals @ Panthers – Probably one of the most unattractive games on the schedule this season.

Lions @ Buccaneers – The Bucs are dealing with some tough injuries the last two weeks, but the Lions are on the road and you know what that means. Take the home team. Tampa is a solid choice in Week 15.

Falcons @ Seahawks – Even if you have Atlanta, I would pass because Seattle is better at home and the Falcons could be due for a loss. I still think that the Falcons will be able to win this one, but I’d rather look elsewhere.

Broncos @ Raiders – This is still an AFC West divisional game and Denver could be seeking revenge. The Broncos do not look like a team that is motivated after the coaching change and could be on pace to lose out this season.

Jets @ Steelers – The Jets’ schedule does not get easier after two straight losses. They’ll travel to Pittsburgh for a big game in the AFC. I would stay away from this game, but nothing is going right for the Jets right now.


Packers @ Patriots – This Sunday night matchup looked like a classic on Sunday morning, but after the Rodgers injury, it does not look so appealing. If Rodgers is out, New England may be an option if you have them, but that’s probably not the case.


Bears @ Vikings – Minnesota will play another Monday night game while the Bears look to regroup from that terrible loss at home to New England. The Bears should be able to bounce back, but don’t take the road divisional game for granted.

SELECTIONS: Bucs & Raiders. If you have used them both, then consider Dallas, but Tampa and Oakland are the main two selections this week.

AVOID: I would pass on Miami this week at home against Buffalo. The Dolphins have not played well at home at all this season and it was a close game the last time these two squared off. Miami is also coming off a big road win against the Jets so a letdown is possible.
