NFL Week 15 Reminder
Hey NFL fans, just a friendly reminder that three games on the schedule this week is slated for Saturday. With playoff implications on the line, you won’t want to miss the results. Plus, fantasy players might miss their chance to correctly insert the right lineup.
The matchups on Saturday are:
Tampa Bay at New England
Kansas City at New York Giants
Denver at Buffalo
Giants will miss middle-linebacker Antonio Pierce, so this could play into the hands for the Chiefs who are desperate for a win after a devastating loss last week in Dallas. If you just caught the replays of last week’s matchup between the Chiefs and the Cowboys, you might think K Lawrence Tynes blew the chance to tie the game at the end of regulation. What most highlight shows didn’t point out was the terrible snap by the center that caused Tynes to mistime the kick.
ESPN analyst Sean Salisbury’s predicts that with the AFC West (Denver, San Diego, Kansas City) fighting each other off for the division and a wildcard spot, the Pittsburgh Steelers might run the table the next three games and should make it in the playoffs with a record of 11-5. Pittsburgh will head to Minnesota this week, followed by a game on the road @Cleveland, and the finale at home versus Detroit. Jacksonville, with three weak opponents left on the schedule, San Francisco, @Houston, and Tennessee, they seem to be in good shape to hold on for a wildcard spot also.
The NFC South will also be tricky, with Tampa Bay and Carolina tied, and Atlanta just one game out, but we’ll get a clearer picture after Saturday. Tampa Bay will head into New England, but so far have been solid at on the road with a 5-2 record. The two loses come from the lowly Jets and 49ers. The 49er lost came after a QB switch to Chris Simms, and he has been progressing since.
Confused by the tiebreaker scenarios? I sure am, here is a helpful guide to answer your questions.
