NFL Week 15 Picks: The Longest Week

As the NFL gets ready for its longest week of the season we have your picks!

NFL Week 15 Picks: The Longest Week


Estimated Reading Time: 4 Minutes

This week’s title is two-fold. On the one hand, several COVID cases in the NFL has caused the postponement of games to Tuesday. Also, it’s the last work week before the Christmas/New Year’s break.

I’m what the French call “clever”.

Last Week = 8-5

Season-to-Date = 105-87-2


The 15th Week of the 2021 NFL Season


New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)

I made this pick yesterday afternoon (there’s a tweet to prove it), and it pained me to do so. I still have nightmares from Frank Reich’s game plan for the Philly offense in the Super Bowl. I also liked the spread being under 3.

As I’m writing this the score is 7-0 Indy and Rhamondre Stevenson just ran into Isiah Wynn… Oh, the Colts just blocked a punt and it’s 14-0. Good for me.

The Pick = Indianapolis


[The rest of the picks will be brought to you by my pissy mood]


Carolina Panthers @ Buffalo Bills (-10.5)

Josh Allen supposedly is healthy and if the Bills are going to make any noise the rest of the season they really need to beat up a sub-par team.

Enter the Panthers.

The Pick = Buffalo


New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins (-9.5)

The Jets stink.

The Pick = Miami


Arizona Cardinals @ Detroit Lions (+13)

I’ve told you before, I like how Detroit comes to play despite such poor results each week for them.

The Pick = Detroit


Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants (+10.5)

I didn’t research this, but I live under the assumption that the Giants always play well in Dallas and the Cowboys always play well in New York.

The Pick = Dallas


Tennessee Titans @ Pittsburgh Steelers (+1.5)

One last gasp for the Steelers to be a playoff team?

The Pick = Pittsburgh


Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (-3.5)

Subtraction

The Pick = Jacksonville


Green Bay Packers @ Baltimore Ravens (+5.5)

I’m just gonna gamble that Lamar doesn’t play and Rodgers does.

The Pick = Green Bay

Cincinnati Bengals @ Denver Broncos (-2.5)

I know the Bengals are struggling, but I just don’t like this Broncos team.

The Pick = Cincinnati


Atlanta Falcons @ San Francisco 49ers (-9)

Here’s what I want to do. I want to pick the 49ers. They are riding high from that OT win vs. Cincy. Kittle looks like one of the best weapons in the NFL.

Here’s my problem. I always pick the Falcons games wrong. So…

The Pick = Atlanta


New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10.5)

I normally don’t like double-digit divisional spreads, but I really don’t like when a head coach misses the game.

The Pick = Tampa Bay



Terry is from Massachusetts and is a passionate fan of the Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins. He also will admit he only pays attention to Syracuse basketball when they're good. If there's a Twitter trade rumor even remotely associated with one of his teams, he's likely fallen for it. Finally, he believes 100% that if the Celtics had beaten the Heat in the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals they would have swept the Thunder in the Finals.
