NFL Week 15 Predictions

Week 15 Let’s get to the good stuff.

 

Next man up!

Back to the Eagles. Just as America was starting to buy-in to what Eagles fans already knew, the team took a hit with losing Carson Wentz for the season due to a torn ACL. Who is Nick Foles and can he lead this team to post-season victory? Foles, unlike Wentz, is a player who thrives inside structure. He’s a natural thrower when he gets into a rhythm who can drop back and hit a moving target on the run at every level of the field. As long as the Eagles run game remains strong and keeps opposing defenses honest, Foles can be a weapon and not a burden to overcome. It seems like this team loses top players every other week, why lose faith now?

We should still believe in the Philadelphia “Next Man Up” Eagles.

 

Jaguars fans rejoice! We take you seriously now!

Jaguars CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye combined for three interceptions on the day in Jacksonville’s win against Seattle. I’d be shocked if these 2 don’t get voted into the Pro-Bowl this year. Offenses are only capable of a fraction of deep plays with these 2 on the field. The exception to this could come next week when the Jags face DeAndre Hopkins and the Houston Texans. Hopkins has torched some excellent CBs this season and will put this Jags secondary to the test. After that, this defense should dominate SF 49ers in week 16 and Tennessee Titans in week 17.

 

Chargers over Chiefs

The Chargers are rolling with an unstoppable offense and unblockable Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on defense. Despite the Chiefs’ ability to score points, their defense is no match for the Chargers passing game. Chief will score most points on the ground, and we predict it won’t be enough even with home-field advantage. Chargers will take home the win.

 

Big Ben is the key to winning week 15 against New England Patriots

Roethlisberger is on a hot streak, which is good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers because they are really missing LB Ryan Shazier (out for the season with a back injury) on defense as evidence in Sunday night’s shootout against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens rushed for 152 yards, as running back Alex Collins bounced outside and turned the corner again and again. Usually, Shazier would be covering that corner. Patriots will exploit this defensive void by spreading the ball and making sure plenty of touches go to their RBs. It’s going to come down to how well Big Ben can move his offense down the field with Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and the rest of the supporting cast on offense. Weather permitting, this should be a high-scoring game.
