2019 NFL Week 15 Betting
Week 15 is the last we’ll see of the typical Thursday, Sunday, Monday setup as that all changes for the final two weeks of the 2019 regular season schedule. The final Thursday Night Football game of the year pits a pair of AFC teams against each other with four divisional matchups and seven interconference tilts on tap for the 14-game Sunday slate.
The betting week gets started with a matchup between two quarterbacks selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The New York Jets slotted Sam Darnold into the starting lineup after taking him with the third overall pick. The Ravens used the last pick in the first round to take former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson, who eased his way into the starting role last season forcing the team to part ways with Joe Flacco. This will be the first head-to-head matchup between the two top picks and the first meeting between the teams since the Jets snapped an eight-game losing streak to Baltimore with a win in 2016.
The majority of action on Sunday takes place in the early window with nine games on tap. The Bears and Packers got the season started back in Week 1 and the two renew hostilities on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field in the NFL’s most played rivalry. This will be the 200th all-time meeting between the franchises with 198 of those in the regular season and two postseason tilts.
The NFC East hasn’t had a repeat division winner since the Philadelphia Eagles won their fourth in a row in 2004. Philly and Washington are looking to continue that drought and meet in a crucial division game in our nation’s capital. Two other divisional matchups are featured in the early part of the schedule with those taking place in the AFC. The Titans host Houston in a South tilt with the Broncos and Chiefs squaring off in a West battle.
One week after playing the Jets at MetLife Stadium, the Miami Dolphins make a return trip to New Jersey for a rare out of conference game with the Giants. The clubs have met just eight times previously with the G-Men winning the last three. The only other intra-conference game on Sunday takes place in the late window and features the last two No. 1 draft picks. Baker Mayfield and his Cleveland Browns head to Arizona for a matchup with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. The franchises have played 50 times but this will be just the sixth meeting since 1995.
We could also be witnessing the final game in the Oakland Coliseum as the Raiders close out their regular season home schedule with a matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Raiders are getting ready to move to Las Vegas to begin a new chapter in franchise history and plenty of memories will be left behind. Another matchup that evokes memories from seasons past is the Cowboys and Rams. Two dominant NFC teams from the 1970s, they met five times in the postseason that decade, twice in the NFC Championship. After not competing in the playoffs for over three decades, they were reunited last season with the Rams getting a 30-22 victory in the Divisional Round.
Another contest that takes place every four years under the scheduling matrix introduced in 2002, the Minnesota Vikings visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. It’s the first meeting between the clubs since the Bolts bolted for the LA area two years ago. The winner will take the lead in the all-time series that is currently even at 6-6.
