NFL Week 15 2022: A case for each underdog

Taking a glance at the NFL Week 15 schedule, we see a host of underdogs who could both cover and potentially outright win.

San Francisco 49ers (-3.5) at Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks understand they’re playing for their lives, while the Niners are traveling on a short week.

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills (-7.5)

Miami needs to win. If not, the Dolphins face the reality of a three-game skid and potentially missing out on the playoffs.

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns (-3)

The Browns are the healthier team, but the Ravens consistently find ways to win due to their coaching and experience.

Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings (-4)

Nobody has a bigger discrepancy between their actual play and their record than Minnesota.

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-4)

With Desmond Ridder taking over as the starting quarterback, the Saints won’t have any tape on how to prepare for this new offense.

Philadelphia Eagles (-9) at Chicago Bears

Coming off a bye, the Bears get an Eagles team perhaps a bit flat, knowing it has little to play for until January gets rolling.

Detroit Lions at New York Jets (PICK’EM)

Detroit has a terrific offense and has won six of its last seven. The Jets are terrific defensively, but the offense is struggling to be consistent.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers (-2.5)

Pittsburgh has the more talented roster, especially if Kenny Pickett can play. The Steelers can also relentlessly pressure Sam Darnold.

Dallas Cowboys (-5) at Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are tough to figure, but provided they can protect Trevor Lawrence, they match up well in myriad other ways with Dallas.

Kansas City Chiefs (-14) at Houston Texans

The Chiefs are a bad cover team, something we saw in Denver despite having a 27-point lead.

Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) at Denver Broncos

The Broncos are getting the Cardinals when they have nothing to play for, and being down Kyler Murray.

Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Chargers (-3)

Derrick Henry and Co. understand they need to get going or risk the AFC South crown. The good news? The Chargers can’t stop the run.

Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady? Frankly, there’s little reason to back the Bucs with the way they’ve played.

New England Patriots at Las Vegas Raiders (PICK’EM)

The Patriots are playing for their playoff lives, while the Raiders are setting up tee times.

New York Giants at Washington Commanders (-4.5)

New York was the better team for large portions of its matchup with Washington in Week 13. No reason to think the Giants can’t win on the road.

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)

The main concern is the weather, because both teams are finished and have major issues. In this case, take the points.
