Predictions for Every NFL Game in Week 15

Athlon's experts pick their winners for every game, including the big AFC clash between the Patriots and Steelers

NFL Picks: Aaron Rodgers

It’s Week 15 of the NFL regular season and the playoff picture is starting to come into focus. Philadelphia (NFC East) and Pittsburgh (AFC North) have already clinched division titles and two others can be sewn up with victories on Sunday. In addition, two other playoff berths can be claimed via a victory and/or a little bit of help.

 

The game that everyone has circled in Week 15 is New England headed to Pittsburgh to take on the red-hot Steelers. Pittsburgh sewed up the AFC North with a thrilling, come-from-behind victory over Baltimore this past Sunday night and has been waiting for its shot at the defending Super Bowl champions all season. The Patriots missed an opportunity to wrap up a ninth straight AFC East crown on Monday night with a lackluster performance on the road against Miami. Can New England turn things around the league’s hottest team (eight wins in a row)?

 

Elsewhere, Minnesota can clinch the NFC North with a win over the reeling Bengals. The Vikings lost at Carolina last week and now trail the Eagles by a game for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Philadelphia is in the postseason but will be without quarterback and MVP candidate Carson Wentz, who tore his ACL in last week’s win against the Rams. Nick Foles will take over as the Eagles look to maintain their lead for the No. 1 seed in the NFC with a season sweep of the Giants.

 

Los Angeles can sew up a playoff spot with a win and some help, but the Rams’ focus will be on getting even against NFC West rival Seattle, who is coming off of an emotional loss at Jacksonville. The Jaguars also can secure their spot in the postseason and maintain their lead in the AFC South with a win over Houston.

 

Week 15 kicks off with Denver traveling to Indianapolis for a game that only matters as it relates to draft order, and also features two Saturday games. The most important is the matchup between Los Angeles and Kansas City with first place in the AFC West at stake.

 

Aaron Rodgers (above, right) may make his return from a broken collarbone for Green Bay, as the Packers head to Carolina to take on a Panthers team that may be peaking at the right time. And the action concludes on Monday night with Atlanta trying to improve its playoff chances by beating Tampa Bay for the second time in three weeks.
