NFL Week 15 Betting Lines
As Week 15 commences so too will the final push towards the playoffs and the coaches hot seat talk. Week 15 also commences the NFL flex scheduling that has five games on hold as far as starting kickoff times. How those teams ultimately perform will determine what time that they play. There will not be any teams on a bye and action will kickoff from Sin City as the Las Vegas Raiders host the Los Angeles Chargers. These teams go all the way back to the founding of the American Football League in 1960 and have played in the West Division with the Chiefs and Broncos that entire time. The Chargers status of life without Philip Rivers and the Raiders progress in new state of the art Allegiant Stadium will be revealed by opening kickoff.
NFL Week 15 Schedule & Lines
Sunday’s late afternoon games are highlighted by a potential Super Bowl matchup of the Chiefs and Saints from New Orleans. Two of the best quarterbacks in the game will meet here with Patrick Mahomes of Kansas City and Drew Brees of New Orleans. There is no doubt the Chiefs will be even better in 2020. The question is if the Saints can get back to their defensive play level of 2018 as they slipped back last year.
Denver will host the Bills in what could be a game with major AFC playoff implications. The Broncos are a trendy pick after finishing strong last year with rookie quarterback Drew Lock. To begin the 2020 season Lock will be the Denver starter and he will be tested over the entire 16-game grind. As for Buffalo they are coming off a playoff season but must add an element of offense if they want to take the next step.
The Colts and Philip Rivers will host the Texans in Indianapolis in what could be a showdown for the AFC South. Houston has been a consistent but bland playoff team that has had its roster blown up by general manager and coach Bill O’Brien.
NBC Sunday Night Football could not possibly ask for more as the Cowboys host the 49ers in Dallas. San Francisco is the defending NFC champion and is a favorite to make it back to Super Sunday. But the question remains as to whether or not they have enough game breakers that can make an impact in showdown matchups such as this. As for Dallas they are always touted as playoff material but that is often due to their public status as “America’s Team.” However, this time it appears as if the Cowboys have substance to their position. First, the hiring of Green Bay Packers Super Bowl championship winning coach Mike McCarthy gives them gravitas on the sidelines. Second, the 2020 NFL Draft for Dallas was among the highest rated in the entire NFL. There is every reason to assume that much will be on the line for this one.
Monday night offers an old AFC North rivalry matchup of the Steelers at Cincinnati to face the rebuilding Bengals. The top pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, quarterback Joe Burrow, will be under center for Cincinnati and we will have a good measure of his progress by the time this game kicks off. As for the Steelers their fate will almost certainly come down to the playing status of aging veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
