Week 15 recap
Two weeks left in the NFL regular season and the pressure to make the playoffs is mounting for teams in contention. Just when we think the standings will sort themselves out, we find a week where the Rams and Steelers both lose to the Jets and Bengals. It just goes to show that in the NFL it will always be hard to predict winners. The Jets’ win may have cost them the opportunity to draft Trevor Lawrence but at least they will avoid an 0-16 season.
The Steelers surprising loss does mean that for the second time this year, all eight of the Line Movement staff were on the wrong side of an outcome. On Sunday night, the Browns rolled over the Giants and appear to be legitimate threats in the AFC. Sunday afternoon saw the Cardinals take down the Eagles and with that, Philly’s playoff hopes are slim.
The overall record moves to 224 – 136 which is an accurate percentage of 62%. Matty D still holds a slim lead but multiple members are still in contention heading into the second to last week.
Week 16 games
The picks begin this week with the Colts visiting the Steelers. The Colts enter the game as a favorite which many would not have seen coming two weeks ago but the Steelers have now lost three straight after starting the year 11-0. Sunday afternoon will see the Rams head to Seattle to face the Seahawks in an important divisional battle. Only one game separates the two atop the NFC West. Finally, Monday night will showcase the Derek Henry led Titans traveling to Green Bay to play Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. The Titans need a win to stay in the lead for the AFC South. The Packers have clinched the division and are playing for the #1 seed and the important bye that comes along with it.
