The Rams have lost eight of their last nine games and have the absolute worst scoring offense in the NFL. With rookie Jared Goff at quarterback, Los Angeles has managed more than two touchdowns just once in the last seven weeks. Of the Rams four victories this season, one was over Seattle back in Week 2. Don't expect them to get another... Seattle 28, Los Angeles 7.
Miami picked up a huge win over Arizona last week and is still very much alive in the playoff race. The Dolphins may have to be without starting QB Ryan Tannehill who injured a knee in the win over the Cardinals. The Jets have just four wins this season and two of them are against San Francisco (1-12) and Cleveland (0-13)... Miami 29, NY Jets 19.
Green Bay (7-6) is making a late move for the NFC playoffs. QB Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to a huge 38-10 win over Seattle last week. Now, Green Bay finishes the season with a trip through the division. It begins in Chicago with the 3-10 Bears. The Packers own a 26-10 victory over the Bears earlier this season. Green Bay gets another on Sunday... Green Bay 34, Chicago 17.
The AFC South is a mess and it's Houston's for the taking. The Texans and Titans are tied at 7-6 for the division lead. Houston cannot afford a loss especially to 2-11 Jacksonville. Houston beat the Jags earlier this season 24-21. Playing at home, Houston wins big... Houston 28, Jacksonville 14.
Will the Browns win a game this season? If so, their best shot may be on Sunday against the Bills. Cleveland would have to win on the road though. Buffalo is coming off a loss to Pittsburgh and is all but mathematically eliminated from the postseason. The Browns might catch the Bills at the right time. Could be an upset... Cleveland 17, Buffalo 14.
The Ravens have to keep pace with the Steelers in the AFC North. Their defense has been phenomenal and the offense has perked up. The Eagles have now lost four straight after dropping a 27-22 decision to Washington last week. Philadelphia lacks a big-play receiver or running back to complement rookie QB Carson Wentz. He will struggle against Baltimore's defense... Baltimore 23, Philadelphia 17.
The Titans need a win over Kansas City if they are going to stay in the race for the AFC South Division title. If the Chiefs can stay even with the Raiders, they will win the AFC West since they hold the tiebreaker over Oakland. The Chiefs are 5-1 at home and winning at Arrowhead Stadium late in the season is always difficult... Kansas City 27, Tennessee 20.
Detroit won its fifth game in a row, a 20-17 victory over the Bears. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is having an MVP-like season and will need to do it again against the Giants. While the Lions are 6-1 at home, they are just 3-3 on the road. A win over New York would really make a statement like the Giants win over Dallas last week. The Giants own the only two wins over Dallas this season… NY Giants 23, Detroit 20.
The only way to the postseason for both Indianapolis and Minnesota is winning their respective divisions. A loss this week will likely eliminate the loser from the playoffs. Minnesota is spectacular on defense, but the Vikings offense is atrocious. Indy is a picture of inconsistency and is just 3-3 on the road... Minnesota 22, Indianapolis 18.
Pittsburgh has beaten Cincinnati three straight times including earlier this year. The Steelers have won six of the last seven in the series and the Bengals are just 5-7-1 this year. Cincinnati will fail to make the postseason for the first time in six years. This one is always a battle and Pittsburgh needs a win to stay in the race for the AFC North... Pittsburgh 31, Cincinnati 21.
After playing for an NFC title last season, the Cardinals season has not turned out as head coach Bruce Arians planned. New Orleans has one of the most potent offenses in the NFL. Too bad their defense can't stop anyone. The Saints and Cardinals meet Sunday and the result likely will not help either team get to the postseason. New Orleans has won just twice on the road this season... Arizona 38, New Orleans 35.
The 8-5 Falcons welcome the 1-12 49ers to the Georgia Dome. Atlanta's No. 1 offense put up 42 points on Los Angeles last week. Expect more of the same against a San Francisco defense that is the worst in the NFL in most every defensive statistical category. The Niners give up nearly 31 points a game. Falcons QB Matt Ryan and WR Julio Jones will have a field day... Atlanta 44, San Francisco 14.
The game that everyone wants to see in Week 15 is New England at Denver. The two teams have played some great games in the past few years, including last year's AFC Championship game. Denver has won the last two meetings and three of the past four. Last year, the teams met in Denver and the Broncos won in overtime...but that was last year... New England 26, Denver 24.
In the first meeting, the Chargers gave the Raiders a run for its money. Oakland won 34-31 and must continue to win if the Raiders are to have a chance at winning the division. San Diego has lost two straight. Both offenses are explosive and it could be another shootout on Sunday... Oakland 38, San Diego 31.
The NFL moved this game to Sunday night. Good thing. The Bucs won for the fifth game in a row and are now in a great position to capture a wild card slot. They could even win the AFC South Division with some help. Tampa Bay has been very good on the road, 5-1 thus far. This could be a good one... Dallas 17, Tampa Bay 16.
The Redskins picked up a huge win last week over NFC East foe Philadelphia. Quarterback Kirk Cousins continues to shine and he and his teammates must continue to win if they want to go back to the postseason. Carolina picked up a big win over San Diego last week, but the Panthers defense is not what it was a year ago. Carolina is just 1-5 on the road this year... Washington 32, Carolina 26.

2018 NFL Football Season
Tampa Bay @ St. Louis
The Bucs didn’t do themselves any favors when they lost to New Orleans last week. At 6-7, Tampa Bay’s playoff hopes are all but gone. They travel to St. Louis where the Rams are coming off a win over Detroit, their first after five straight losses. Running backs Todd Gurley and Tre Mason give the Rams a powerful one-two punch… St. Louis 20, Tampa Bay 17.
NY Jets @ Dallas
It’s a special Saturday night edition of the NFL featuring two teams headed in opposite directions. The 8-5 Jets are right in the thick of the AFC playoff hunt while the Cowboys are watching their season go right into the tank. Dallas has still not won a game without Tony Romo, who is out for the rest of the season. Jets head coach Todd Bowles needs this win. New York plays Buffalo and New England to close the regular season… NY Jets 33, Dallas 19.
Chicago @ Minnesota
The Vikings cannot afford to lose ground in the NFC North. Minnesota lost a close game to 11-2 Arizona last week but is still a legitimate contender. The Vikings defense is solid and RB Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in rushing. Teddy Bridgewater continues to improve at quarterback, but the Bears Jay Cutler (19-of-31 for 315 yards and two TDs) can be dangerous. At home, the Vikings take care of business… Minnesota 27, Chicago 24.
Atlanta @ Jacksonville
The Falcons’ season continues to spiral out of control. They were 6-1 after a 10-7 win over Tennessee in late October. Atlanta has not won since. To make matters worse, their seventh loss in a row last week was a 38-0 demolishing by the unbeaten Carolina Panthers. The Jags, on the other hand, erupted for 51 points in a win over Indianapolis. It seems hard to believe that Atlanta could lose eight in a row, but Jacksonville is getting better…and they are at home… Jacksonville 28, Atlanta 27.
Houston @ Indianapolis
The Colts have fallen apart. A 51-16 loss last week to Jacksonville puts their playoff hopes in peril. Without starting QB Andrew Luck, the Indianapolis offense is not the same. The Texans were on a roll, a four-game win streak until they ran into Buffalo and New England. The winner of this game takes control of the AFC South. Houston DE J.J. Watt has a broken hand, but Jadeveon Clowney doesn’t… Houston 24, Indianapolis 17.
Carolina @ NY Giants
Can anyone beat Carolina? Three more weeks to an unbeaten regular season. The Giants can’t seem to win a close game. QB Eli Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr are one of the league’s best passing combinations, but they have not faced a defense like Carolina’s. The Panthers have stifled receiver after receiver this season. Expect them to do it again… Carolina 37, NY Giants 24.
Denver @ Pittsburgh
The Steelers can’t afford another loss. QB Big Ben Roethlisberger and company took down AFC North Division leading Cincinnati last week. Now, they face AFC West leader Denver. The Broncos are coming off a 15-12 loss to Oakland, the first with Brock Osweiler at quarterback. Osweiler was pressured heavily by the Raiders. Pittsburgh will do the same… Pittsburgh 33, Denver 30.
Kansas City @ Baltimore
The hottest team in the NFL is the Kansas City Chiefs. You know things are going well when you don’t play well and still beat San Diego 10-3. Last week’s win over the Chargers was the Chiefs seventh in a row. They will take on a Baltimore team that cannot wait for the offseason. The Ravens (4-9) lost to Seattle last week 35-6. Without QB Joe Flacco, Baltimore’s offense is listless… Kansas City 24, Baltimore 10.
Green Bay @ Oakland
Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary touchdown pass to defeat Detroit has recharged the Packers, who defeated Dallas 28-7 last week. Green Bay is now in first place in the NFC North and in control of its spot in the postseason. They will visit Oakland, which pulled a big upset of Denver last week. The Packers need a win before facing Arizona and Minnesota to close the season… Green Bay 31, Oakland 27.
Cincinnati @ San Francisco
The Bengals will play with A.J. McCarron at quarterback after Andy Dalton fractured a thumb in last week’s loss to the Steelers. The good thing for Cincinnati is that they play the 49ers. San Francisco has a hard time scoring and isn’t very good on defense either. Even though he is a backup, expect McCarron to do just enough to give the Bengals a win… Cincinnati 23, San Francisco 17.
Buffalo @ Washington
After an ugly win over Chicago last week, the 6-7 Redskins are now in control of the NFC East, a division that no one seems to want to win. QB Kirk Cousins is playing very well and will have to do so again against a pretty stout Buffalo defense. Can the Washington defense slow down Buffalo RB LeSean McCoy? The Bills will make this one very interesting… Washington 24, Buffalo 23.
Arizona @ Philadelphia
The Eagles can still win the NFC East. They will have to beat Arizona on Sunday night if they are to keep pace with Washington and the Giants. That may be too tough a task. The Cardinals have the league’s best offense and are playing very well on defense. Even at home, the Eagles won’t be able to overcome… Arizona 34, Philadelphia 27.
Detroit @ New Orleans
After three straight wins, the Lions thought they might have a shot at the playoffs. Then, the Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary hit, and that was on a Monday night. The Lions lost last week to the Rams and are now 4-9. The Saints beat Tampa Bay last week to end a four-game losing streak. Detroit doesn’t fare too well on Monday night… New Orleans 33, Detroit 27.
