In Week 13, three AFC teams with playoff hopes lost winnable games at home. The shocking result in the NFC was the Detroit Lions getting their first win against the playoff-hopeful Vikings. So what is going to happen in NFL Week 14?
Baltimore Ravens (+2.5) at Cleveland Browns
Yes, the Ravens are coming off a loss at Pittsburgh. Yes, they just lost corner Marlon Humphrey for the season. And yes, Lamar Jackson has the second-most interceptions in the NFL with 13.
But the Browns continue to be one of the most injured teams in the NFL, and no one is sure just how long Baker Mayfield can hold up physically. And these teams just played each other in Week 12, and the Ravens won the game, even with four Jackson interceptions.
Chances of another four interceptions coming gift-wrapped for Cleveland are long, and if the Browns couldn’t win then, why should they be favorites now?
Take the points.
New Orleans Saints at New York Jets (+6)
The Jets lost again last week because they are the Jets, but Zach Wilson wasn’t all that bad. It was easily his best game in two months, and it gives New York fans a little hope that this season isn’t a total loss.
The Saints, on the other hand, have to look at 2021 as a total loss. Injuries have killed them, and having no real or clear plan for quarterback succession has left them with a five-game losing streak.
We finally got to see Taysom Hill at QB, and while it started well, it ended rather poorly. His injured finger doesn’t require surgery, but how can New Orleans be almost a touchdown favorite?
The Saints are bad, Hill isn’t healthy, and all other options are horrible. Take the Jets and the points.
Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3)
These are tough times for the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots were supposed to be rebuilding, and the Bills were supposed to be a Super Bowl contender. But on Monday, the Patriots got a big leg up on the race for the AFC East by winning in the snow and wind of Buffalo.
Now, when you face a must-win game to keep pace in the division race, you’re facing the biggest of all thorns in your side, Tom Brady.
The Bills are reeling, and the Buccaneers are rolling. Buffalo is missing their best defensive back, Tre’Davious White, and Brady is playing like the MVP favorite, which he is.
Tampa Bay has won three straight, Buffalo has lost two of three, and the Bucs win this game by at least a touchdown.
