NFL Week 14 schedule: 5 teams on upset alert

We could see a bunch of upsets throughout the NFL Week 14 schedule, but these five teams should be on high alert.

5. Philadelphia Eagles (-7) at New York Giants

The Giants now they ned to win after going 0-2-1 over their last three games. Meanwhile, the Eagles come into MetLife Stadium with the comfort of being the No. 1 seed in the NFC next week no matter how things shake in New Jersey. The Eagles and Giants will play twice over the last month of the regular season, and this could set the stage for a dramatic finish for both sides.

4. Kansas City Chiefs (-9) at Denver Broncos

The Chiefs spent all last week getting pumped to play the Bengals, only to then lose 27-24 in brutal fashion. Are they ready to go on Sunday afternoon in sleepy Denver, or do the Broncos sneak up on them? If Kansas City is ready to play, it’s going to be a bloodbath by halftime. However, this might be just the spot Denver needs to make a move and finally see quarterback Russell Wilson throw a few touchdowns to excite the home crowd for a change.

3. Cincinnati Bengals (-5.5) vs. Cleveland Browns 

Nobody doubts the Bengals are the better team, but they’ve lost five straight to Cleveland. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski has long had the number of his counterpart in Cincinnati, Zac Taylor. Does that change now, or is it made worse with Deshaun Watson now under center for the Browns? The first thing the Bengals must do is curtail running back Nick Chubb, who has run all over them in previous games.

2. Buffalo Bills (-10) vs. New York Jets

Why are the Bills laying 10 points? The Jets have one of the league’s best defenses and have already proven they can both shut down and beat Buffalo. Yes, the game is at Highmark Stadium and there’s no doubt the Bills are the clear favorite, but this is also a group now without a healthy quarterback in Josh Allen, along with edge rusher Von Miller being out for the season. Not an easy game against a desperate Jets team trying to make the postseason.

1. San Francisco 49ers (-3.5) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This is going to be a close game. Why? Because both teams are going to struggle offensively but both can play real quality defense. However, the Niners are rolling Brock Purdy out there in his first game as an NFL starting quarterback while Tom Brady has been such a player for almost 25 years. If this is close late — and it should be — Brady has the capability of winning it by stitching together a few drives.
