NFL Week 14 – Late Games
New York Jets at San Francisco 49ers (-2.5)
This game will be NFL Week 14 battle of the dumpster fires…in the dumpster fire that is Levi’s Stadium. Todd Bowles will choose between suffering through another Fitz-tragic start, or making sense of what Bryce Petty might be able to do. Meanwhile, the 49ers will choose between Colin Kaepernick, who was benched after a horrific game against Chicago.
(Our prediction: Jets win 14-10, Jets cover)
Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (+3)
The Packers have been extremely up-and-down this season, but their defense appears to be circling the wagons. Seattle ripped off a big win last week but at the cost of Earl Thomas. This will be a fun game between perennial playoff contenders.
(Our prediction: Seahawks win 31-28, Packers cover)
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5)
Drew Brees collected his usual high yardage in Week 13, but also tossed three interceptions in the loss to Detroit. Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston has progressed significantly and will use his big receivers to demolish a relatively weak Saints secondary. Expect this game to be quite a shootout as the Bucs try to keep pace with Atlanta in NFC South.
(Our prediction: Buccaneers win 35-31, Bucs cover)
Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams (+6)
With the receiving corps wounded, Matt Ryan will put his faith in Atlanta’s young receivers. The Falcons have plenty of firepower in their backfield and should go heavy with the run. The Rams have a solid defensive line but will be hurting in the secondary without E.J. Gaines. Expect Jared Goff to be pressured by the Falcons throughout a majority of this NFL Week 14 game.
(Our prediction: Falcons win 28-13, Falcons cover)
