Jared picks the Week 14 late games including Steelers vs Bills, Eagles vs Saints, Colts vs Raiders, more
Bill vs. Steelers Sunday night should be a worthwhile battle. The 4 o'clock games depend on whether you prefer suspense or scoring.
Colts (-3) RAIDERS (52)
Jared’s Pick: Colts
Breakout Player: RB Jonathan Taylor
Las Vegas has taken a huge step down in the last few weeks. first, they got blown out by Atlanta. Then, they barely beat the 0-11 New York Jets. Indianapolis is a much tougher team and I don’t see the Raiders winning after the last few weeks. The Colts have one of the best defenses in the league, and a decent offense.
Jets (+13.5) SEAHAWKS (47.5)
Jared’s Pick: Jets
Breakout Player: QB Russell Wilson
After Seattle’s loss last week to the Giants, I don’t see them winning by 14 points to the Jets. The Jets played a great game against the Raiders last week. If they play like they did last week, they should cover.
Packers (-8) LIONS (55)
Jared’s Pick: Packers
Breakout Player: QB Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers has been playing at an MVP level. He’s making the position look easy with the number of touchdowns he throws each game. Going against one of the leagues worst passing defenses this week, we could look to see Rodgers pile up the stats. Detroit's only hope is their offense but the Packers should easily cover.
CHARGERS (+2.5) Falcons (49.5)
Jared’s Pick: Chargers
Breakout Player: RB Austin Ekeler
L.A. is coming off of a very tough loss to New England. This doesn’t change the fact that they still have a very good offense. Atlanta‘s defense is not New England's so the Chargers should bounce back. The Falcons will be without star wide receiver Julio Jones, a huge loss. At home, I think the Chargers are set up to win this game.
Saints (-7) EAGLES (43.5)
Jared’s Pick: Saints
Breakout Player: RB Alvin Kamara
The Eagles will have a totally different look with QB Jalen Hurts starting over Carson Wentz. The Saints are currently on a nine game win streak and their offense and defense have been two of the most dominant in the league. They haven’t seemed to be struggling at all with Taysom Hill at quarterback. The Eagles are a mess, and New Orleans should blow them out.
49ERS (-3.5) Football Team (43.5)
Jared’s Pick: Football Team
Breakout Player: Brandon Aiyuk
This will definitely be a defensive game, with both offenses being pretty bad. Last week, Washington shut down the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. They should be able to do the same with the 49ers – Alex Smith will need to put up some points.
BILLS (-2) Steelers (47.5)
Jared’s Pick: Bills
Breakout Player: WR Stefon Diggs
Pittsburgh had an embarrassing loss to the Washington Football Team last week. Even with their 11-1 record, they have been in a lot of close contests. Buffalo has looked significantly better than the Steelers recently and will come down to which elite offense can be stopped. I think the Steelers. Buffalo should cover.
