Houston Texans vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1
Sure, Houston has been wildly inconsistent all season long despite having plenty of talent on both sides of the ball. Tampa Bay had won three straight heading into Week 15. Tampa bay will challenge for the outright win at home, but the Texans are the pick to get the narrow win and cover simply because their postseason lives will likely be on the line in this matchup.
Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots -6½
The Bills put up a great effort in their 16-10 Week 4 home loss against the Pats, but a lot has changed since then. Tom Brady and company are struggling to move the ball like crazy on offense and Buffalo has shown arguably more resiliency than any team in the league this season. Even at home, Buffalo’s stout defense looks like it can keep this one well inside a touchdown finish.
Los Angles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers -6½
The Rams will be looking for revenge for their 20-7 Week 6 home loss against the Niners and I believe they will at least cover the spread if they don’t win outright. Los Angeles had held six of their previous seven opponents heading into Week 15 to 17 points or less. That kind of defense makes me believe Aaron Donald is going to harass Jimmy G throughout in this NFC West divisional battle.

Detroit Lions vs. Denver Broncos -6½
The Lions looked mediocre at best with veteran Matthew Stafford under center. With their best player out for the remainder of the regular season, the Broncos are the pick to get it done at home behind a great defensive effort and some more eye-opening play from young quarterback Drew Lock.
Oakland Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers -6½
The Raiders took out the Chargers 26-24 in Week 10. While Oakland may still have some really faint playoff hopes that still exist coming into this AFC West rivalry matchup, I’m going with Philip Rivers and the Bolts to come up with one of their better performances of the season just to ruin their hated rivals’ playoff hopes.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Atlanta Falcons -6½
In a battle of two of the most disappointing teams in the league this season, Atlanta still has Matt Ryan and Julio Jones while Jacksonville can barely score the ball this season. The Falcons win by at least a touchdown to cover the spread.
New Orleans Saints vs. Tennessee Titans PK
Tennessee has been completely transformed by the elevation of Ryan Tannehill as their starting quarterback, but Drew Brews and the Saints are loaded and have the edge in big-game experience. Despite being on the road, I like the Super Bowl-hopeful Saints to get it done behind their future Hall of Fame signal-caller.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns +7
If you don’t like Baker Mayfield’s loud-mouthed ways, then you can take some satisfaction in knowing that Baltimore is going to pound the former Heisman winner senseless in this Week 15 AFC North matchup while their own Heisman winner, Lamar Jackson has another game for the ages.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles +1
The Cowboys and Eagles have both underachieved all season long, but at least the Birds can claim they had to battle myriad injuries on both sides of the ball. Philly holds it down at home simply because they are the lesser of two evils in this NFC Least matchup.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks -9½
While Kyler Murray has been fantastic in his rookie season and looks a bit like superstar signal-caller Russell Wilson in many facets, Arizona is nowhere near close to the caliber of team that Seattle is. The Seahawks improve their postseason seeding hopes by man-handling the rebuilding Cards en rout to the easy, double-digit win.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears +4
The Bears have an elite defense and they’ll be playing at Soldier Filed in this intriguing Week 16 pairing. Still, I don’t trust Mitch Trubisky very much and that means Patrick Mahomes and the Super Bowl-hopeful Chiefs are the pick to get it done on the road in this one.

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings -4½
The Packers have had a fantastic campaign and they’ll have their sights set on winning the NFC North crown coming into this huge Week 15 divisional matchup. However, Green Bay has some blemishes on the offensive side of the ball and I believe Minnesota’s stingy defense will exploit them to get the win while extracting some revenge for their 21-16 Week 2 road loss against the Pack.
