The NFL heads into Week 14 and now the games get tougher with numerous teams fighting for their playoff lives.
New England Patriots (9-3) at Miami Dolphins (6-6) – New England, which has been beating the teams it had to beat, moves out of the friendly confines of Gillette Stadium Sunday. The Pats visit the Dolphins in Miami and the Fish have won four of the last five with the Patriots in Florida. This is no gimme. The Pats are not that great away from home, I can see upset.
New York Jets (3-9) at Buffalo Bills (4-8) – One of the few meaningless games on the menu. The Jets cannot score and the Bills are very tough defensively. Easy Bills win.
New York Giants (4-8) at Washington Redskins (6-6) – The Boys from Gotham can win out and finish 8-8, which could be good enough for a wild card spot. The Redskins lost most of their offensive line early and for the season via injury, QB Alex Smith broke his leg and is still in the hospital with complications and to make it worse back-up Case Keenum broke his leg. All they have left is Mark Sanchez and a rumoured ex-Charlottetown Rural QB Jim Revelle. Sorry Jim but I gotta bet the Giants here.
Indianapolis Colts (6-6) at Houston Texans (9-3) – The Texans are razor-sharp and look like the best team in the AFC and QB Deshaun Watson has been outstanding both passing and running. The Colts have a top QB in Andrew Luck but he’s against a hungry Texans team.
Carolina Panthers (6-6) at Cleveland Browns (4-7-1) – Browns QB Baker Mayfield is destined for greatness and he’ll have a field day against the weak Carolina secondary. Don’t be concerned with Cleveland’s loss last week to Houston, the Texans are serious Super Bowl contenders. Minnesota Vikings (6-5-1) at Seattle Seahawks (7-5) – Seattle is averaging almost 150 yards per game on the ground. They’ll have a huge possession advantage over the Vikings, so jump on the Seattle bandwagon where Charlottetown horseman Doug MacGregor is perched.
