NFL Predictions – Week 15
It's time for predictions for Week 15 of the 2020 NFL season.
I had a pretty good week last week, going 10-6.
That week pushed my overall record to 139-68-1 for the year, as I look for a strong finish.
Let's try to keep it going this week.
Week 15 looks like another great week with a number of interesting games on the schedule, but I want to focus on three before I get to all of my predictions for this week.
Browns at Giants---The Giants are 5-8 and are one game behind Washington for first place in the NFC East, while the Browns are 9-4 and in good shape for a wild card berth in the AFC Playoffs. New York has won four of its last five, and five of their eight losses have been by eight points or less. The Browns had their four-game win streak snapped last week, after falling to the Ravens, 47-42. This may be a bigger game for the Giants, and I think the Browns may lack some energy after an emotional divisional loss last week. I'm taking the home team.
Chiefs at Saints---The Chiefs are 12-1 and leading the race for the top record in the AFC by one game over the Pittsburgh Steelers, while the Saints are 10-3 and tied with the Packers for the best record in the NFC, although Green Bay holds the tiebreaker edge. Kansas City is playing its second-straight game on the road, after a big road triumph over the Dolphins last week, while New Orleans is 5-1 at home, but the Saints will have a rusty Drew Brees returning, after missing multiple weeks. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm picking the Chiefs.
Seahawks at Washington--Seattle has won three of its last four and is tied with the Rams for first place atop the NFC West standings. The Seahawks have been questionable on defense this season, but man, they sure can moe the football. Washington has been one of the best stories in the NFL this season. From the incredible comeback of quarterback Alex Smith, to the recovery from cancer by head coach Ron Rivera, to the organization getting positive press after a tumultuous offseason, they have some positive momentum right now. Washington, who has one of the best defensive lines in the NFL, has won four of their last five and is now in sole possession of first place in the NFC East. As well as Washington is playing right now, and as suspect as Seattle has been on the road this season, I'm still taking the Seahawks to win a big road game.
Now, enough with the talking; here are the picks for Week 15:
Chargers at Raiders--Raiders
Bills at Broncos---Bills
Panthers at Packers---Packers
Buccaneers at Falcons---Buccaneers
49ers at Cowboys---Cowboys
Lions at Titans---Titans
Texans at Colts---Colts
Patriots at Dolphins---Dolphins
Bears at Vikings---Vikings
Seahawks at Washington---Seahawks
Jaguars at Ravens---Ravens
Jets at Rams---Rams
Eagles at Cardinals---Cardinals
Chiefs at Saints---Chiefs
Browns at Giants---Giants
Steelers at Bengals---Steelers
