Week 14 best odds and betting breakdown
Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Rams
The Raiders continued to show signs of life by winning their third straight to put themselves on the bubble of playoff contention with a 27-20 win over the Chargers. The most encouraging signs were the three sacks from Chandler Jones, as well as another big day for receiver Davante Adams, who had two touchdowns and 177 receiving yards. The Raiders are still near the bottom defensively, giving up 25.1 points and 370.6 yards a game.
The Rams lost their sixth straight against the Seahawks after giving up a late touchdown at home. Matthew Stafford is on injured reserve for the remainder of the season, and Cooper Kupp is also unlikely to return. Backup quarterback John Wolford threw for only 178 yards and two picks in the Week 13 loss to Seattle, and the Rams running game is now the second-worst in the NFL. It’s been a dismal year for the defending Super Bowl champs and there’s not much reason to hope for better with so many stars on the IR.
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions
The Vikings are now back on another winning streak after making it two in a row with a victory over the Jets. Kirk Cousins looked out of sync at times, but finished with 173 yards and one score through the air. It was the defense that really came up big, especially in the red zone, nabbing two interceptions including the one that shut down the Jets comeback attempt in the fourth quarter. The Vikings defense once again made big plays when needed. The team is way out ahead of the pack in the NFC North and can wrap up the division title with a win on the road in Detroit this week.
Jared Goff played probably his best game of the season in a dominant offensive performance for the Lions in a 40-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Clearly, this is an improved Lions team that has won four of its last five. The offense was nearly perfect against the Jaguars, and with receiver Jameson Williams finally in the lineup thsi Sunday after starting the season on injured reserve, there’s hope to think it could get even better.
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Ravens squeaked by the Broncos with a 10-9 victory on Sunday, but quarterback Lamar Jackson exited the game with a knee injury that isn’t expected to be season-ending but could very well keep him out of this week’s game. Coach John Harbaugh described the injury as “days-to-weeks” after the win, though Tyler Huntley was serviceable as a backup, throwing for 187 yards and one interception while also running for 41 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens were already dealing with injury issues elsewhere, and had to activate two wide receivers from the practice squad ahead of the Broncos game. A missed field goal late kept saved Baltimore, as the team limps along with the Bengals nipping at its heels in the AFC North. A win over the basement-dwelling Steelers would help that effort, but a lot is going to depend on Jackson’s health going forward.
The Steelers are on their first winning streak all season after beating the Falcons to make it two victories in a row. Kenny Pickett threw for 197 yards and a touchdown. The defense came up big with an interception to seal the win. The Steelers are banged up defensively, especially in the secondary, and the offense is still among the worst in the league when it comes to yards and points per game. This team needs to cobble success together from a few different sources in order to win, which it managed to do against Atlanta. Against the AFC North-leading Ravens, a team with one of the highest turnover differentials in the league, that could be tougher to do.
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals
In his first game in a Browns uniform and against his former team, Deshaun Watson didn’t exactly look like Cleveland’s savior. He threw an interception in the red zone, went 12-for-22 with 131 yards passing, and generally looked like a guy who hasn’t played much football lately while sitting out a sexual misconduct suspension. Fortunately for Cleveland, defense and special teams came up huge, turning two turnovers into touchdowns while Donovan Peoples-Jones returned a punt for a score to help the Browns to a 27-14 victory in a game where the team didn’t score a single offensive touchdown. Now the Browns need to pick up some ground against the divisional rival Bengals, but the team needs Watson to start producing. He looked very rusty against the worst team in the league. Cleveland needs him to snap back into shape in a hurry in order to chip away at Cincinnati’s two-game lead.
The Bengals got a great game out of Joe Burrow to carry them to a win over the Chiefs in Week 13. Burrow threw for two scores, ran for another, and was good for 286 yards through the air with no interceptions. Cincinnati also got a great game out of Samaje Perine, who ran for 106 yards to beat a Chiefs team that came in riding a four-game winning streak. The Bengals look strong when all their gears click at the same time. They’re right there with the Ravens for the lead in the AFC North, but they need a win at home here against the Browns to keep the momentum going as the playoff push heats up.
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills
The Jets came up short against the Vikings, 27-22, and have now lost two of their last three. Tallying yards gained on offense isn’t the problem for this team, but scoring points in the red zone is. Quarterback Mike White had his second straight game with more than 300 yards of offense. But aside from his QB sneak for a score, he was kept out of the end zone and also threw two picks. Hitting the road to play a streaking Buffalo team in December means the job isn’t getting any easier.
The Bills won their third straight in New England on Thursday night, giving the team a couple extra days rest before beginning a two-game homestand. Once again, Josh Allen’s heroics were on display, as he threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns. Buffalo is second in the league in points per game, and third in passing yards per game. The challenges are more on the defensive side of the ball, especially with Von Miller injured. The pass rush looked good against the Patriots in the first game since Miller was added to the IR, and it helped to get A.J. Epenesa and Greg Rousseau back from injuries. The Bills could really use a win at home after losing to their AFC East rival on the road last month.
Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys
The Texans continue to be the worst team in the league, even managing to lose without giving up an offensive touchdown. Since Houston’s lone win over the Jaguars in early October, they’ve lost seven in a row. They’ve only scored more than 20 points in a game once this season, and are last in the league in yards per game.
The Cowboys routed the Colts on Sunday night, riding a wave of turnovers and an offensive explosion to put up 33 unanswered points and win 54-19. Dallas is now 5-1 since Dak Prescott returned from injury, and the team appears to be firing on both sides of the ball. The Cowboys have the second-best turnover differential in the league, behind only the Eagles, and the defense added to it with two fumble recoveries and three interceptions against the Colts. Hosting the hapless Texans this week will be another good chance for Dallas to gain ground on the division-leading Eagles, while also putting a little more space between itself and the Giants.
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants
The Eagles rolled over Tennessee on Sunday. It was another Jalen Hurts showcase, as the quarterback ran for one touchdown and threw for three more, along with 380 yards through the air and zero interceptions. Even playing with backups for almost all of the fourth quarter, the Eagles still came away with a dominant 35-10 win for a third straight win since that lone loss against the Commanders in Week 10. The defense continues to be one of the league’s best, and Hurts is one of the most potent offensive threats in the NFL.
The Giants played to a rare tie with division rival Washington on Sunday, after a missed field goal in overtime left the game knotted at 20. Daniel Jones threw for 200 yards and ran for 71, with one passing touchdown. This week’s matchup with the Eagles is both a challenge and an opportunity. The defense has struggled against the run at times. Its ability to contain him might be what this one hinges on for the Giants, who haven’t won a game in three weeks now.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans
The Jaguars were thoroughly handled by the once-lowly Lions, losing 40-14 on the road. A big part of the problem is the defense’s struggles against the pass. The Jags have mostly been solid against the run, but are third-worst in the league against the pass, giving up 255.5 yards per game. Jared Goff torched them on Sunday, but the good news is that now they have to turn around and face a Tennessee team with the opposite strengths. The Jaguars also need to do a better job protecting quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who was briefly knocked out of the game after a scary hit in the first half. Lawrence came back in the second half, and is expected to be back somewhere close to full health for this one.
The Titans didn’t come anywhere close to stopping Jalen Hurts, and the result was a 35-10 shellacking at the hands of the Eagles. The Titans have now lost two straight and are suddenly looking a little more vulnerable in their position atop the AFC South. The good news is that they haven’t lost a game in their own division yet this year.
Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos
The Chiefs ran into a hot Bengals team on Sunday and came up short in a bid to extend their winning streak to six games. Patrick Mahomes threw for one touchdown and ran for another, but the Chiefs defense struggled against Cincinnati en route to a 27-24 loss. The Chiefs are still way out ahead of everyone in the AFC West, and going up against the increasingly pitiful Broncos could be a good way to get back on track after a tough loss.
The Broncos lost their fourth straight, against a wounded Ravens team that gave Denver every opportunity to snatch a needed win. And yet the Broncos continue to find ways to lose, this time in 10-9 game. The lone bright spot was the Broncos defense, which came up big against the Lamar Jackson-less Ravens and snatched two interceptions to keep things close. But the Broncos offense is abysmal. In the four games since the Broncos’ bye week, this offense has scored just three touchdowns. Hosting the division-leading Chiefs doesn’t seem likely to lift anyone’s spirits in Denver right now.
Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks
The Panthers had a bye last week, and before that beat the Broncos to improve to 4-8. Somehow, in the NFC South, that’s still within striking distance of first place. One big problem for the Panthers is that they’re the only team in the NFL that has yet to win a game on the road this season. Carolina is a dismal 0-5 away, and now they head out to face Seattle. This team is in the middle of turmoil, as Baker Mayfield was released and the QB situation remains unsettled.
The Seahawks pulled one out late to beat the Rams, 27-24, and halt a two-game skid. Geno Smith threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns with one interception, and the defense came up big with two interceptions. It was good enough to keep the Seahawks in step with the 49ers in the battle for supremacy in the NFC West, but the Seahawks are losing running backs to injury at a worrisome pace. Rashaad Penny’s season ended in October, then Kenneth Walker III left with an injury in the win over the Rams. The team was already missing Travis Homer, and Deejay Dallas limped off with an ankle injury in the first half.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Francisco 49ers
The Buccaneers pulled off a stunningly late comeback to defeat the Saints 17-16 on Monday Night Football, putting a positive ending on what might otherwise have been considered a completely disappointing night for the offense. Tom Brady has struggled with turnovers against the Saints, and having all-pro tackle Tristan Wirfs out with an injury didn’t help that trend. Here he was picked off for just his third interception so far this season. The Bucs ask a lot from their defense, since their offense is consistently one of the lowest scoring in the league, averaging only 18.1 points per game. Against better teams that can be a big problem, especially with injuries thinning out the Buccaneers defensive secondary.
The 49ers are coming off a 33-17 win over the Dolphins, but quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot and is out for the season, which means San Francisco may be depending on Brock Purdy, who threw for 210 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception after coming on against Miami. What really saved the day Sunday was the defense bouncing back from a poor start to the game to clamp down on the dangerous Dolphins offense with a lot of help from a strong pass rush.
Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers
The Dolphins started hot and cooled fast against a strong 49ers defense, ending Miami’s winning streak at five games. Tua Tagovailoa looked good in his opening series, but seemed to fall out of sync as the 49ers increased the pressure and ended up throwing two picks to go with his two touchdowns and 295 yards of offense. The Dolphins may be concerned about wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who caught just one pass while struggling with a leg injury that knocked him out of the game.
The Chargers lost by a touchdown to the Raiders, their third defeat in the last four. At times, the team can still make some big plays, like Justin Herbert’s touchdown pass to Keenan Allen on fourth down against the Raiders, but the Chargers are one of the few teams in the league that’s considerably worse at home than on the road, with a 2-3 record as hosts this season. It doesn’t help that they have one of the worst running games in the NFL, gaining just 85.8 yards on the ground per game. Now the Chargers have to face a winning team in the Dolphins, knowing their playoff hopes are likely on the line with each game at this point – and also knowing they’re 0-4 against teams with a winning record so far this season.
New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals
The Patriots’ playoff hopes aren’t totally dead, but a win over Arizona is essential. The offense is barely cracking 20 points a game and the team is among the worst in the NFL when it comes to giving the ball away. The good news is that, after playing on Thursday last week and Monday this week, at least there’s a few extra days to sort it out before heading to Arizona.
The Cardinals had a bye in Week 13, allowing the team more time to dwell on the 25-24 loss to the Chargers to close out November. Arizona has lost two straight, is just 1-6 at home, and is now just barely ahead of the rapidly imploding Rams in the NFC West. Technically, the Cardinals do still have the slimmest of chances to make the playoffs, but the big question may be what to do with quarterback Kyler Murray, who is recently returned from a hamstring injury but maybe still not at full power. Look for the QB to keep getting out there unless the hamstring gets worse.
