NFL Week 14 Predictions: Our Picks Against the Spread

recently, but this week — Sunday in particular — has a lot to offer, with more than a few critical games, difficult matchups for the top contenders, and the debut of a new head coach in Green Bay.

Chicago has had plenty of players contributing to the cause, with Kyle Fuller, a cornerback, leading the way with six interceptions, while Eddie Jackson, a safety, has crushed teams’ spirits by returning two of his four picks for touchdowns.

As Jacksonville, which ended a seven-game losing streak last week, continues its pursuit of a .500 record, it will rely on Leonard Fournette, the team’s standout running back, to find a way to get through a stout Titans front seven anchored by Jurrell Casey.

It is easy to pick on the Bengals (5-7), losers of six of their last seven games, but it is worth remembering that those losses came as Cincinnati endured several huge injuries and against some stellar competition — it is not like many teams can stand up to the Steelers, Chiefs or Saints.

How far the Broncos can go beyond that is a more interesting question, as season-ending injuries to Chris Harris Jr., a cornerback, and Emmanuel Sanders, a wide receiver, could hamper them in games against teams more competent than San Francisco.

Alex Smith’s devastating injury was just the start of their problems as they have now lost three consecutive games, have had to watch the Cowboys ascend, and have somehow ended up with Mark Sanchez at quarterback.
