With just three weeks remaining in the regular season, most of the games on the Week 15 schedule have major playoff implications. Seven games feature two teams with winning records, and only five contests are not between division rivals.
“Thursday Night Football” begins the week with an intriguing divisional matchup. The first-place Cardinals, who are tied for the NFL’s best record, visit the Rams, who are in last place with a losing record. Even though Arizona has a four-game advantage, St. Louis is a 3.5-point favorite.
After a big win in Miami, Baltimore has been named the biggest favorite of Week 15. They are giving Jacksonville 13.5 points. The Jaguars are tied for the league’s worst record and don’t have a win on the road.
Cincinnati vs. Cleveland is the only pick’em on the schedule. The Bengals have one more victory than their rivals, but the Browns won their only head-to-head matchup, 24-3. There’s a good chance Johnny Manziel will get the first start of his NFL career.
The Eagles and Cowboys will meet in a contest that could determine the NFC East winner. Even though both teams have a 9-4 record, a win for Philadelphia would give them the tiebreaker, meaning one Eagles' victory or one Cowboys' loss in the final two weeks would give them the division title. The over/under of 55.5 points is the highest of the week.
