Each NFL game matters at this stage of the season. Here’s all of the Week 15 picks.
The twists and turns of the NFL season continued in Week 14, and there is plenty of to look forward to on the menu this week. Last week, I went 9-7 in my picks, and I blame Oakland for that. Did you really have to beat Denver?
This week features a Saturday night game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets. A win would be huge for the Jets’ playoff ambitions. The Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers take battle in what’s set to be a great game. The league’s best defense against arguably the best offense? Sign me up. All lines are provided by OddsShark.
Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars (-3)
Can the Falcons (6-7) finally end the losing run? The offense will have opportunities against the Jaguars (5-8) defense, but the Blake Bortles-led offense is talented. Allen Robinson can cause a number of problems for the Falcons secondary. Jacksonville still has a shot at playoffs, and wins at home.
Pick: Jacksonville 30, Atlanta 27
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at St. Louis Rams (-1)
The Buccaneers (6-7) were effectively ruled out of playoff contention with their loss to the Saints. Todd Gurley got back on track for the Rams (5-8) last week, and will continue on against the Bucs.
Pick: St. Louis 20, Tampa Bay 13
