Week 14 had a little bit of everything: upsets, injuries, divisional rivalries and a blizzard. Now we’ll look ahead to see what Week 15 lines have in store for us.

 

New England Patriots (-3) vs Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at 4:25 PM ET

In Week 14, the Pittsburgh Steelers won a 39-38 shootout at home against their divisional rival Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots shockingly fell to their divisional rival, the Miami Dolphins, in a massive upset. Despite the loss last week, the 10-3 Patriots find themselves as the 3-point favourites over the 11-2 Steelers. One reason could be that Tom Brady has absolutely owned the Steelers throughout his career. Brady sports a 10-2 all-time record over the Steelers. Since 2007, Brady has averaged 324.7 passing yards per game to go along with 22 touchdown passes and zero interceptions. A matchup against Brady could spell trouble for the AFC leading Steelers.

 

Los Angeles Chargers (-1.5) vs Kansas City Chiefs Saturday at 8:25 PM ET

Before the season began, many people expected the Chiefs and Chargers to be in a tight battle for the AFC West. It’s how we got here that’s surprising. After the first four games of this season, the Chargers were 0-4 while the Chiefs were 4-0. 

These two teams are trending in opposite directions, which is why the Chiefs enter this game as 1.5-point home dogs. However, Kansas City does have reason to be optimistic. The Chiefs have scored a total of 57 points over the last two weeks to get their offence back on track and they’re coming off a win over another divisional rival, the Oakland Raiders. The Chargers own a four-game winning streak and are firing on all cylinders, both offensively and defensively. This will be a great matchup on Saturday night.

 

Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks (-3) Sunday at 4:05 PM ET 

The NFC playoff race is really heating up and with it, the NFC West. Divisional rivals, the 9-4 Rams and the 8-5 Seahawks, meet in Seattle in an important game for both teams. Despite currently leading the NFC West, the Rams will fall back into an increasingly uncomfortable wildcard position if they lose on Sunday. The Seahawks defeated the Rams in Week 5 and own the tiebreaker. 

Despite a depleted defence, the Seahawks are a dangerous team led by MVP candidate Russell Wilson. This will be a tough test for Rams’ second-year quarterback Jared Goff in one of the loudest NFL stadiums. But then again, the Rams have scored 396 points this year, second in the league. This has the looks of a high-scoring affair in Seattle.
