Many teams are fighting for playoff hopes as the NFL season winds down. So which teams will be victors in NFL Week 14? Blogging Dirty makes the calls.
With plenty of teams still searching for their playoff spot, NFL Week 14 is upon us. Only the Dallas Cowboys have clinched a playoff spot but the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, and Oakland Raiders aren’t close behind. Teams who definitely won’t be appearing in the playoffs are the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, and Cleveland Browns. Either way, this week feels primed for another slate of entertaining action.
Here we go with Blogging Dirty’s Week 14 picks and predictions:
Thursday Night Football
Note: We are behind on the post but “pinky swear” the picks were submitted before this NFL Week 14 game was played.
Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs (-3)
This will be a tough game between a pair of divisional rivals stuck firmly in the playoff race. Oakland leads the AFC with the #1 slot, but the Chiefs are not far behind at #5. It’s worth noting the Chiefs came out with a 26-10 victory when during their first meeting in October.
The Raiders have improved and will look to beat the imposing Chiefs defense with the Derek Carr-led, high-flying offense. Alex Smith and the Chiefs’ offense will look to stay away from Khalil Mack and attempt to burn the weaker Oakland secondary. Expect this NFL Week 14 matchup to be a dogfight for the ages.
