This is Alex from unwrap sports here to do Week 14 predictions in the NFL in what looks to be a very pivotal week in the NFL, whether before playoff positioning or four fantasy playoffs as, uh, any pockets 27 has just joined the stream.
Him and I are number one or number two seed and one of our own leaks.
Let's go and start off with Thursday Night Football.
We have the Dallas Cowboys going to Chicago to face the Bears.
A lot could go wrong for the Cowboys.
A lot could continue going wrong for the Bears.
Bears had a resilient victory where Travis Ki kind of got himself back into the mix.
Thank you, E v E R.
10 for joining the Stream.
The Mitchell True Whiskey roller coaster of a season has continued as you know, he's had another high game where he played well down the stretch against the against the Detroit Lions and really connected well with Anthony Miller really connected well with Alan Robinson.
He did have the help of David Montgomery running the ball exceptionally well, and he definitely had, you know, things going in his direction, that second half.
That first half was completely terrible for them this last week down by, I believe, at least 10 points at one point in the in the first half, and I don't know if I trust the Chicago Bears, but then I don't know if I trust the Dallas Cowboys, who have been quite the same inconsistency, but they have a quote unquote better roster.
On paper, they just haven't been able to get it done in crunch time.
But in this game, I have the Dallas Cowboys getting this victory in the cold.
It's going to be a Ezekiel Elliott type of game.
Expect the Tony Pilar to really get involved.
I think it's gonna be a ground and pound game.
It really depends on the weather.
Whether has a big effect on the way quarterbacks are allowed to know.
Air it out on offense.
And if the if the snow has fallen, it's a cold, cold game.
It's probably gonna be coming down to, you know, kind of West Coast offense, you know, pass off the off the ground, you know, have the ground game, establish everything, and I think this looks to be a big game for Zeke and possibly a big game for David Montgomery.
But I am going to go with the Dallas Cowboys getting this Thursday night victory and what looks to be a crucial game for them the season.
Thanks for joining the Stream.
The Carolina Panthers just had a very tough loss where, you know, they really started to kind of get things going.
In the second half.
They were blessed with Yung Wei Qiu being able to get two onside kicks off.
He did get three off, but one was calling back for or forced to re kick.
For whatever reason, and just failed by the way that their offensive line wasn't able to withstand the New Orleans Saints defensive line.
The Carolina Panthers just took a very tough loss against the Washington Redskins.
Darius Guys continues to have an impressive return from injury and has really shown his explosive ability that he showed at L S U with his violent running ability and his ability to make people miss and break tackles.
So in that regard, you know, these teams air once coming off, ah, game that they could build off of the Falcons, and one's coming off a game that really hurt them.
And, yeah, I definitely do not think that Rivera should have been fired.
This team has just been inconsistent.
Overall, I don't know if you just blame that on coach.
You know, Cam Newton is their quarterback at the moment. Franchise quarterback.
He was hurt to start this season off.
He probably shouldn't have been playing to start the season off to begin with.
It might have been a Andrew Luck situation where he could have just sat the whole year and rested.
Whatever the case may be, Rivera was scapegoated.
But in this game in this Sunday, I have the Atlanta Falcons coming through.
I think the Panthers air in a little bit of a disarray.
I think the Falcons are gonna kind of establish themselves early, have one of those games that they've had in recent weeks where they kind of come out, all guns blazing.
So Falcons over Panthers Next game.
We had the Baltimore Ravens going to Buffalo to face the Bills.
That looks to be like a very good game.
I think the Bills defense gonna play exceptionally well.
They're going to you know, change things up.
A defense kind of keep Lamar decks and guessing I ultimately have.
You know, the Ravens win in this game, but it's definitely gonna be a very close game.
I think it could go down to a last minute feel go time of possession at the end of the game where they run the clock out.
But I do think the Ravens pulled this one out, but I would not be surprised, in the very least, if the Bills can pull off a victory with the way Josh Allen has performed in the last couple of weeks.
Next game we have is the Cincinnati Bengals at the Cleveland Browns.
It pains me to say this is a Steelers fan, Brown's.
We're going to get this victory.
I know that it really all depends on Baker Mayfield injury, whether it's a bruised hand, whether it's more and they're not saying as much for whatever it made the reason, maybe, But I think Baker Mayfield is gonna go out there.
They still have a small glimmer of hope to make the playoffs, so I do think they're going to do what they can to get themselves in cream.
Hunt has been an impressive addition to this offense That's added another really threat for them at the running back position with Nick Chubb already, that's going to be something to keep to be on the lookout for.
Heino Bangles just got their first victory of the season.
I don't expect them to get their 2nd 1 this week.
Cleveland Browns over Cincinnati Bengals Next game we have here is the Washington Redskins at the Green Bay Packers, and now this game is at Lambeau is the winter time.
It's gonna be one of those running game running a pound games.
I think I should have a big game again.
I think it's going to be an impressive showing by this Redskins running game because, you know, Adrian Peterson has still been able to run the Rockwell.
You know, guys has been proven to make plays out of what he's gotten through the passing game, but I ultimately think the Packers are going to win this game.
It's in Lambeau in the winter.
I definitely, you know, think Winter games or uh, favor to the team that definitely plays in that.
More often, they trained in that So I definitely think Green Bay Packers we're going to handle business is I don't think the Packers can really close in on both of these pools of their biggest threats, which is Davante Adams and Aaron Jones.
Next thing we have is the Denver Broncos at the Houston Texans.
This game is gonna be in Houston.
I have the Texans taking care of business in this game.
I think Drew Lock is gonna perform very well.
You know, he's showed a lot of poise him in.
Sudden really had a good repertoire this past week.
I do expect them to connect in the end zone again.
You know, Drew Lock had been someone that I had spoken with any pockets here. 27.
He's brought his fan.
He was very high on Drew lock and, you know, after kind of washing some tape on him, I think he could be someone that the Broncos could build on.
I know Elway has proven to not build on the younger side.
He wants to kind of get a veteran presence.
But, you know, this might be the guy that change is always mine.
But Texas is gonna pull this victory out against the, uh, Denver Broncos.
Haiti's will Thank you for joining the Stream.
Next, we have the Detroit lines at the Minnesota Vikings.
Vikings are gonna take care of business.
I know they did have a Detroit Lions that have a good performance from there.
Third string quarterback David Blau.
I do think the mind Minnesota Vikings defense is better than the Chicago Bears. At the moment.
Chicago Bears just got Akeem Nicks.
That might help change things a little bit, but for the Detroit lines, I don't think they have enough to kind of withstand this Minnesota defense.
And Kirk Cousins just lost a tough victory.
You know, they were looking to get Adam feeling back, who you know, did get today off, which is a known around the league as a veteran day off on Wednesdays.
Especially, they're banged up if he is able to get back.
I definitely think the Minnesota Vikings pull this victory off easily, But if you know things go wrong, Kirk Cousins, plays, plays the ball he was playing in the first quarter of the season.
If Dalvin cook is injured and Madison can't handle the production through the running game, it's going to be a tough one.
But ultimately, I think the Vikings have too much firepower compared to what the Lions have Vikings gonna get this victory.
Next game we have is the San Francisco 40 Niners going to New Orleans to face the Saints for me.
I was gonna get this victory in a bounce back.
They just had a couple rough weeks of the season.
Kind of their harder part.
This is no the Saints or no slouch themselves.
But I think before the under chief is gonna have a good bounce back game.
The Saints offense has, you know, had moments where they've shown they have taken have a lapse of consistency.
And I think that was gonna occur in this week s match up.
And I think ultimately the 40 Niners offense is also gonna get things going.
You know, Deebo, Samuel has really grown into a playmaker in this offense.
Emmanuel Sanders is, you know, slowly but surely getting more and more healthy.
George Kiddo, as well.
Getting more and more healthy.
You know, the running game itself hasn't been what it was in the first half of the season.
I see them focusing on that a little bit more.
10 and Coleman hasn't done much since.
Is crazy three touchdown performance that they're going to get things back, go things back on track and handle the New Orleans Saints.
Next game we have is the Miami Dolphins going to the Jets? I am going to go out on a limb.
I'm just gonna go with the Dolphins.
I just got a very huge victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Devante Parker has just been performing exceptionally well.
Jamal and Adams is banged up.
I think it's the perfect situated victory and what looked to be a completely lost season.
You know, Sam Darnold has the ability to, you know, make me wrong, Definitely.
But you know, the way that he's been inconsistent, I just I don't trust that team at the moment.
Uh, weirdly, I'm gonna trust the Dolphins on this one, but I have the Dolphins over the Jets.
Next time we have is the Indianapolis Colts at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
I have the Colts taking care of business in this game.
It's going to be another inconsistent game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Winston had a pedestrian day this past week.
No touchdowns, no interceptions.
So he didn't really kill his team as bad as he could have.
But I have her set kind of getting himself more comfortable in the pocket, you know, getting a little bit more in the throes he's making.
I know he has been struggling to kind of throw his receivers open, but I think this week will be a big change to that.
Marlon Mack has, has, has the possibility of playing.
I doubt he's gonna play.
I don't know if they're going to try to rush him in, depending on how desperate they feel they are within the playoffs of, you know, they think risking him would be worth it.
Ah, but I definitely have the cold's handling business into Tampa Bay.
Next, we have the Los Angeles Chargers at the Jacksonville Jaguars.
I have the Jaguars pulling this victory out some inhumane E all over again, for that's gonna run the ball very well, you know, for the Chargers, I just think there's such a broken team.
I don't know if it was the addition of Melvin Gordon.
I don't know if it's just they don't have the mental toughness to pull out some of these clothes victories, but for the Chargers, I definitely don't have face on them.
And I have more faith in Gardner.
Minshew to kind of get the Jet.
Where's offense? Back on track after a couple stagnant weeks under control? By Nick Foles.
Next, we have the Pittsburgh Steelers going against the Arizona Cardinals.
I have Steel was pulling out this victory.
I definitely believe the Steelers defense is going to stifle the ah young quarterback in Cuyler.
Murray, uh, Their running game has been kind of surprisingly off, obviously, because David Johnson has not been has been very shell of himself these last four games.
You know, they do have Kenyon Drake, who has been a revelation for them. Great pickup.
But, you know, I ultimately think the Pittsburgh Steeler defense is gonna take care of business and the running game that they were going to kind of emphasize.
And, you know, I do believe they're going to start to open up the offense a little bit for Devlin. Hodges.
Let him get let him air it out a little bit more, but I ultimately have the pit Cardinals.
Next game is the Kansas City Chiefs facing the New England Patriots.
I have the chief's beating the Patriots and kind of putting them in a spot where can know what happens to them over the last couple of years, where people start to really doubt them.
I think this is gonna be one of those moments where this is going to be the loss that kind of puts him in a position to rebound.
So I do have Chiefs plans victory off.
Ah, a lot has been said about Tom Brady's play over the last couple of weeks.
I know you know, he hasn't been quote unquote producing like he has in the past, but I definitely think defense's air really tying into James Light, really focusing on Julian Edelman and kind of forcing the other receivers to kind of step up.
And they, unfortunately have it.
And I know that.
You know, a lot of people are kind of making like, kind of like what I've been saying about the Packers, that they haven't had 1/3 person really step up and make their mark.
Patriots haven't really had that Seenu was brought in to do that.
He has yet to be able to do so.
He is injured, so I do want to cut him a little bit of slack there.
But if Mama's and who doesn't get things going, the Patriots offense could be in a bit of, ah, struggle to score points.
Now that defense's have kind of shown, you know, Hey, if we put a safety in a corner on Edelman, we keep a corner on James White.
We really forced Tom Brady to win the game with his receivers, who have not been getting a lot of separation the season.
Hey, Seahawks fan 19.
Thanks for joining the Stream.
Next game we have is the Tennessee Titans at the Oakland Raiders.
I have the Titans take care of it.
Jane Care of business in Oakland.
It's gonna be a tough, hard fought victory.
But ultimately, I think the Titans running game with Derrick Henry is just gonna completely ground and pound that defense that has been their Achilles heel all season.
And you know, Tannehill is not gonna blow up or have any crazy 400 yard games.
But he's gonna get the Titans of the ends on at least three times himself through the air and I think that might be what puts the Raiders in the definite out of the playoff race situation.
Next, we have the Seattle Seahawks facing the Los Angeles Rams.
I have the Seahawks taking care of business against the Los Angeles Rams, the Los Angeles Rams.
We're not gonna be able to performed the way they did in the earlier matchup, where it kind of came down to a last minute play.
I know it might put it them in a better position.
Now that you know Jalen Ramsey is there, you know they have things you know, kind of on the up and up after a great victory against the heirs of the Cardinals.
But Seattle Seahawks were a far superior team.
Their defense has been playing a lot better down stretch.
Russell Wilson hasn't had to be the the magician he's had to with the help of his young players.
Whether it be de que Metcalf shot Penny having himself a game, Carson kind of holding onto the ball a little better, not fumbling.
It looks to be another and a good situation for the Seahawks to secure another win and keep hold of the NFC West crown.
Then we have the New York Giants at the Philadelphia Eagles.
Eli Manning is returning to start for the offense.
I believe his current record is 116 to 116.
He will be over 500 in his overall career record.
I think that happens.
I think the Eagles nightmare season continues, and I think Eli Manning is gonna have himself a game with Golden Tate.
And I think say Kwan gets himself going as he has only gotten over 100 yards twice this season.
If I have that stat, correct.
So that is it for me.
