NFL Week 15 matchups to watch

 

Here are the six NFL games to pick for this coming week.

 

Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings

When: 1 p.m., ET, Sunday, Dec. 20

TV: FOX

Where: US Bank Stadium, Minneapolis

Record: Bears (6-7), Vikings (6-7)

 

It is a “loser leaves town” type of game for the NFC playoff field for both the Bears and Vikings, who met back on Nov. 16 with Minnesota scoring a 19-13 win at Soldier Field. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky passed for 267 yards and three touchdowns as the Bears broke a six-game losing streak with a 36-7 thumping of the Texans. If the Bears can win out, they could sneak past the Cardinals for the seventh playoff spot.

 

Meanwhile, the Vikings 26-14 loss at Tampa Bay – fueled by Dan Bailey’s kicking woes sent them back into the outside of the playoff race behind Arizona. Minnesota’s remaining schedule is more daunting with a road game at New Orleans next week. That’s why this is a must-win.

Detroit Lions vs. Tennessee Titans

When: 1 p.m., ET, Sunday, Dec. 20

TV: CBS

Where: Nissan Stadium, Nashville

Record: Lions (5-8), Titans (9-4)

 

The Derrick Henry for MVP campaign gained some more steam on Sunday as the Titans running back rushed for 215 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-10 win over the Jaguars. Tennessee still remains atop the AFC South thanks to a divisional win percentage over the Colts, who are tied with them.

Meanwhile, the Lions are well, the Lions. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of a 31-24 loss to Green Bay that saw Detroit’s playoff hopes gate under (can we say diminish here instead?) interim head coach Darrell Bevell, the Lions showed more fight. But then again, that’s not enough to make up for a talent gap that Detroit is facing.

 

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons

When: 1 p.m., ET, Sunday, Dec. 20

TV: FOX

Where: Mercedes Benz Stadium, Atlanta

Record: Buccaneers (8-5), Falcons (4-9)

 

The numbers that mattered show the Bucs improve to 8-5 with Sunday’s win over the Vikings. However, some of the underlying numbers were troubling again. Minnesota had an almost 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession and allowed the Vikings to have an edge in first downs and total yardage. Still, the Bucs control their destiny for one of three wild-card spots and can start to clamp it down with a win in Atlanta, who lost to the Chargers in Los Angeles on a late field goal and who have lost back to back games after a strong stretch under interim head coach Raheem Morris.  This is the first of two games in three weeks between the two teams.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Football Team

When: 1 p.m. ET, Sunday, Dec. 20

TV: FOX

Where: FedEx Field

Record: Seahawks (9-4), Washington (6-7)

 

Raise your hands if you thought the division leader in this matchup would be the football team. Ok, now you are lying. Washington has won four in a row and surged into the lead in the NFL’s wackiest division. Sunday’s 23-15 win over the 49ers even brought the return of Dwayne Haskins at quarterback in replacing Alex Smith, who suffered a calf injury. But the real story was Washington’s defense, which recorded two touchdowns off 49ers quarterback Nick Mullins to give the deciding margin.

 

The Seahawks, meanwhile, were able to bounce back from a stunning loss to the Giants by pounding New York’s other team, the Jets, 40-3. Russell Wilson had four touchdown passes as Seattle stayed on the heels of the Rams for the NFC West lead.

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins

When: 1 p.m., ET, Sunday, Dec. 20

TV: CBS

Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami

Record: Patriots (6-7), Dolphins (8-5)

 

New England’s last stand for a playoff spot. Both teams are coming off losses to potential Super Bowl contenders- New England’s offense stifled in a 24-3 loss to the Rams, the Dolphins falling just short in a 33-27 home loss to Kansas City. For the Patriots, the offense needs to get going and Cam Newton has to be better than he was during Thursday’s night’s loss to Los Angeles that saw him yanked for Jarrett Stidham in the fourth quarter.

 

Meanwhile, the Dolphins may have to play this one without Myles Gaskins, who was placed on the COVID-19 list.

Cleveland Browns vs. New York Giants

When: 8:20 p.m., ET, Sunday Dec. 20

TV: NBC

Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

Record: Browns (9-3)*, Giants (5-8)

*PENDING MONDAY NIGHT GAME

 

This is a critical game for two teams hanging onto playoff hopes. Cleveland is looking to keep its lock on an AFC wild-card spot and get back on track after a tough 47-42 loss to the Ravens on Monday night. The Browns are also playing their way into the discussion as a serious AFC contender in that “team you don’t want to play” mode.

 

Meanwhile, the Giants had a serious stumble in a 26-7 loss to the Cardinals that raised more concerns about Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ ability to finish the season with a hamstring injury that appeared to hinder him.
