NFL Week 15 Game Picks: This Saints team is ALIVE!

3 of 4

Kansas City Chiefs (8-5) at Baltimore Ravens (4-9)

The Chiefs have won what feels like ten games straight, and are out east in Baltimore where the perfect teammate Ryan Mallett makes his debut for the Ravens. This game should neither be interesting nor close, but that’s how most trap games shape up.

Houston Texans (6-7) at Indianapolis Colts (6-7)

The AFC South division crown and the fourth seed in the conference are up for grabs. T.J. Yates and Matt Hasselbeck (?) will face each other in a rather disappointing matchup. The Texans are coming together on defense, but the Patriots showed that there are still plenty of flaws.

Jacksonville Jaguars (5-8) at Atlanta Falcons (6-7)

A few weeks ago, this seemed like a high-scoring affair between two young teams on the rise. Fortunately, the Falcons are in a steep decline and a lot of it has to do with Matt Ryan. He is getting solid protection and has studs around him on offense, but got shut out last week in Carolina. While it seems improbable that the Falcons remain scoreless this week as well, they have to put up a lot of number against the Jaguars passing offense.

Chicago Bears (5-8) at Minnesota Vikings (8-5)

An NFC North classic! Both teams have lost their momentum the past few weeks but they should be able to play at a high level this Sunday. Minnesota relies heavily on Adrian Peterson, and Chicago has done a great deal to stop the opponent’s best playmaker making this an interesting affair.
