Welcome to Week 14! The NFL playoff race is heating up now that we’re in December and the New Orleans Saints are the first entrant into the postseason tournament. More teams will likely secure a playoff berth this weekend, while we’ve got plenty of teams trying to stave off elimination.
We get a host of matchups in Week 14 that bring significant playoff implications. Thursday Night Football opens with a must win for the Cowboys and Bears. On Sunday, we get 49ers-Saints, Titans-Raiders, Chiefs-Patriots, and Seahawks-Rams all providing some level of must-win for each team.
As we head into Week 14, there will be plenty of information to consider in deciding how we want to wager on the various matchups. The Falcons are hoping to get back Julio Jones and might also get Austin Hooper back from an MCL sprain. Baker Mayfield bruised his hand and Daniel Jones sprained his ankle, but both are expected to play. The injury report is lengthy at this point in the season.
We’re not going to bet on every single matchup on the card this week, but there are plenty of intriguing ones for us to consider. Our decisions will be influenced by injury news and depth chart changes, so we’re here to help you prepare for everything that will go down this week.
