NFL Week 15 Preview – AFC v NFC

December 16th 2012 14:36
NFL Week 15 Preview – AFC v NFC

The following is a preview of games played between AFC and NFC teams

Washington Redskins (7-6) at Cleveland Browns (5-8)

The Cleveland Browns have played very well on their 3 game winning streak, but not as well as Washington has been playing during theirs. The catch is that RGIII keeps getting banged up with his style of play, a common detriment to a dual-threat quarterback’s health. Kirk Cousins was a great draft pick and showed great forsight when they knew how Griffin plays his game. He will play fine in a tough game for them against a Browns team playing at home with a lot of pride.

Seattle Seahawks (8-5) at Buffalo Bills (5-8)

The Seahawks are accelerating toward a playoff spot and will face one of the worst defenses in the league in Toronto, which will serve as the home field for the Bills due to their partnership. If the young Seahawks are on their game, the Bills won’t have much of a chance, but if they can win the turnover and penalty game, they could make their Canadian fans happy.

Carolina Panthers (4-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-8)

This should be an entertaining game with two offensive focused teams. The Chargers will have a lot of changes in the offseason, but for now their one bright spot is their 4 ranked run defense, which should force the Panthers game into the air. With the Chargers running gaming lacking this year, it could be and entertaining shoot-out for two non-playoff teams.

Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) at Dallas Cowboys (7-6)

When the Steelers are down, they’re usually not down for long. They’ve lost 3 of their last 5 and are in danger of missing the playoffs. Ben Roethisberger returned too soon from his shoulder injury and the offense never got into a rhythm last week in their loss to the Chargers. Dallas had got to be excited about having DeMarco Murray back in time with the NFC East title within reach. If Ware and Co. can get to Big Ben, they will easily take this game as the Steelers’ running game has been inconsistent at best as of late.

San Francisco 49ers (9-3-1) at New England Patriots (10-3)

Another big matchup for the Patriots could be the key to a momentum filled push to another Super Bowl appearance. Their next two games are against the Jaguars and Dolphins which should equate to wins. You can put money on the fact that Bill Belichick has already dissected Colin Kaepernick’s flaws and will have his defense exploit them expertly. This should be a loss for the 49ers and another reason to admonish the decision to bench Alex Smith.
