Upsets To Watch For In Week 14

Here are some games carrying playoff implications that we think could tilt in the underdog’s direction.

Raiders (+11) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-11)

It’s not that the Steelers should lose this game. They shouldn’t. The Raiders are bad. Very bad. They rank in the bottom five of both points scored and points allowed per game. The latter in particular should portend a field day for Pittsburgh’s own offense.

Still, the Steelers are ridiculously hard to trust as a double-digit favorite in an away game. They choked away the ability to grab an airtight hold on the AFC North title by choking late against the Chargers in Week 13, and they’ve yet to piece together a dominant performance away from home. 

Pittsburgh has only won by double digits on the road once, versus the Ravens in Week 9. Again: They should win. We’re just not counting on a runaway victory.

Our pick: Raiders (+11)

Redskins (-2.5) vs. Giants (+2.5)

Whether the Giants should revel in winning football games this late into the season is up for debate. They have no shot at making the playoffs, and each victory hurts their standing in the draft order.

Nevertheless, they have been playing much better football. They’ve won three of their last four games, including an impressive victory over the Bears in Week 13. Their one loss during this stretch came against the Eagles, and it was by only three points.

Intradivision matchups always have extra juice, and this should be no different. The Redskins are trying to displace the Cowboys from the top spot in search of a playoff berth, but the season-ending injury to quarterback Alex Smith compromises their stock against a suddenly surging New York squad.

Our prediction: Giants (+2.5)

Packers (-6) vs. Falcons (+6)

Overly generous much?

Sure, the Falcons are neither a good road team (1-4) nor a quality squad overall. But the Packers, now 4-7-1, have not done nearly enough to be a favorite by nearly a touchdown. 

Green Bay is coming off a loss, at home, against the Cardinals, one of the worst teams in football. What’s more, the Packers are averaging under 20 points per game over their last three contests. It’s going to take way more than that to beat a Falcons offense that ranks 11th in points per game.

Indeed, the Packers have a path to the postseason. If they win while the Bears and Vikings lose, they have an outside shot at re-entering the race for the NFC North. But they’ve been far too inconsistent to bank on a victory, let alone a six-point spread.

Our prediction: Falcons (+6)
