MFST’s Week 15 NFL Picks
For the second week in a row I ended 10-5 as we head into the home stretch of the NFL season. So far through 14 weeks I own a 114-70 record, good for a win percentage of 63%. Not quite at my goal of 75%, but in today’s NFL that is filled with more parody than any other league, I’ll take it. Here are my Week 15 NFL picks…
Chiefs 24 at Ravens 13
The Chiefs are one of the hottest teams in the NFL the last two months and facing a depleted Ravens teams that features Jimmy Clausen at QB should mean yet another victory for KC.
Texans 16 at Colts 10
A battle for the AFC South lead in which both teams will rely on their backup QB’s. While the game will undoubtedly be ugly, I expect the Texans defense to outplay the Colts in a low scoring affair.
Falcons 34 at Jaguars 30
It’s battle of former Seahawks defensive coordinators, and essentially a playoff elimination game. While the Jags are coming in hot, I can’t keep picking against Matt Ryan and Julio Jones…they have to turn it around…right?
Bears 17 at Vikings 28
I expect Adrian Peterson to run wild on Sunday, keeping the Vikings division hopes alive for another week. Chicago has played well, but with nothing to play for, they will not be able to compete with Minnesota on the road.
Titans 16 at Patriots 35
This is the easiest game to pick in my mind. Despite the injuries, New England is the far better team across the board. In a few years Mariota might have something to say, but now…no.
Panthers 27 at Giants 24
The Giants desperately need this win and have a history of beating undefeated teams in big games. Could they do it? Yes, but this is not the same defense or running game they had when they pulled off those victories. The Panthers stay undefeated for another week.
Bills 21 at Washington 14
Since the Bills all but crushed their playoff hopes last week, they will win this game, continuing to infuriate their fan base.
Packers 31 at Raiders 20
The Raiders turned in an impressive second-half comeback win over the Broncos on Sunday, but I don’t think they can do it two weeks in a row. Aaron Rodgers and crew will be too much to handle in Cali.
Browns 6 at Seahawks 35
Good luck Johnny Football, you’ll need it.
Broncos 10 at Steelers 24
Now that everyone is witnessing the lack of talent Brock Osweiler has, the Broncos will make the switch back to Peyton, eventually. That process will begin after this game, I expect Big Ben to provide more offense than Big Brock.
Dolphins 20 at Chargers 24
In what is likely the last Chargers game in San Diego, Philip Rivers will send them out with a win over a Dolphins team that has nothing to play for.
Bengals 23 at 49ers 13
Even without Andy Dalton, the Bengals defense and running game should provide them enough to beat a poor 49ers team.
Cardinals 42 at Eagles 20
The Cardinals are 4-0 in prime time games this season. Make it five with a win over the suddenly hot Eagles.
Lions 17 at Saints 28
I feel like every Monday Night game has been terrible this year. This one is no exception. Saints at home? Sure.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/mfsts-week-15-nfl-picks/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/a-1.png?fit=700%2C350&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/a-1.png?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1AFC EastAFC NorthAFC SouthAFC WestNFC EastNFC NorthNFC SouthNFC WestNFLNFL PicksRecent PostsNFL,NFL PicksFor the second week in a row I ended 10-5 as we head into the home stretch of the NFL season.
