Welcome to Week 14 of the 2019 NFL season! We’re through Thanksgiving and firmly into the holiday season as December is upon us. The NFL season has flown by and we suddenly are right in the thick of the playoff race.
Last week, the Saints became the first team to clinch a playoff berth, securing the NFC South. They are now in first place in the NFC following the 49ers loss to the Ravens. Baltimore’s win coupled with the Patriots loss in Houston moved the Ravens to the top of the AFC.
The 49ers, Patriots, and Ravens all have an opportunity to clinch a playoff berth in Week 14, along with the Bills, Chiefs, and Seahawks. We’ll see some teams knocked out of contention as well in what should be a busy weekend of football.
I’m back once again with my weekly NFL picks. For Thursday I put together a complete list of straight up picks, and Sunday morning I’ll have my picks against the spread given how much can change between now and then. I’m taking the Cowboys -3 at DraftKings Sportsbook today, and will have full write-ups later this morning.
If you’re in a pick ‘em contest, I’ve put together my complete list of Week 14 straight up picks. You can check out SB Nation’s full list of experts picking here, where I’m 110-82 heading into this week.
