NFL Week 14 Review
10 December 2019
The 49ers +3 gave the Saints everything they could handle in the dome and ultimately won the game outright. With the 49ers trailing by one point in the last minute, George Kittle made a Herculean catch and run, including a face mask penalty to put the 49ers in field goal position and the kick gave them a walk off win.
The Cle/Cin over 40.5 got there in an ugly game and the total landed on 46. This figure could have landed much higher had the Browns played even average on offense.
The Atl/Car over 48 got there with relative ease as the game landed on 60 points in what was an easy win for the Falcons.
The Dolphins +5.5 were covering for the entirety of the second half and ultimately lost by just a point as the Jets kicked a game winning field goal with three seconds left.
The play of the week Titans -2.5 rolled on the Raiders in the second half after a competitive first half. After a 21-21 halftime score, the second half belonged to Ryan Tannehill and co. and the final was 42-21. The Raiders are just not equipped to play from behind and surrendering the lead in the second half made the game a bit of a runaway.
The Jaguars +3 have just about completely quit on Doug Marrone as evidenced by a 35 point home loss to the normally inept Chargers. This one was a laugher on the wrong side.
The Seahawks -1 lost Rashaad Penny to injury early and the offense was completely out of sync for the duration of this one. Their lone touchdown came on a pick six and there really wasn’t much hope for the Seahawks throughout the second half.
The NYJ/Mia over 45 fell short as the game landed on 43 points. It is quite easy to figure out what went wrong here. The last seven (!!!) scoring plays of the game were field goals and not touchdowns. Just slightly better efficiency on either side gets this one home.
5-3 on the profitable week.
