NFL Week 14 Betting Odds, Notable Matchups, TV Schedule By Christopher B. Watford for NoLuckNeeded.com
It has been a noteworthy week in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs have let Kareem Hunt go due to videos of him assaulting a woman recently surfacing. The Packers have fired head coach, Mike McCarthy, after a loss to the Cardinals. Derrick Henry had four touchdowns, including a 99-yard rushing TD. The regular season is coming to an end and things are starting to get interesting. Let’s look at this week’s notable matchups.
Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) @ Dallas Cowboys (-3.5) 12/9/18
The NFC East has been especially brutal this year and we’ve got a great conference rivalry to kickstart this Sunday night. The Eagles are looking to take the second game of the series and even the standings between the Cowboys. These two teams met once in the middle of November where the Cowboys took the game with a final score of 27-20. Zach Ertz averaged 10.4 yards on 14 receptions and grabbed two touchdowns.
The Cowboys have the fourth best defense in the league, while the Eagles are towards the end of the pack, ranking 21st for points per game. With the Cowboys starting to figure things out and the addition of their lockdown defense, they might have just what it takes to take both games against the Eagles and boost their spot in the NFC East. Watch on FOX this Sunday at 4:25 PM ET.

LA Rams (-3) @ Chicago Bears (+3) 12/9/18
One of the best matchups of the weekend is between two powerhouses of the NFL. As you may know, the Rams are the real deal this year: with an 11-1 record. The Rams have one of the best defensive tackles in the league and he’s been making a splash every time he gets on the field. He leads the league in sacks with 16.5 and he had two sacks and a forced fumble in the Rams’ win against the Lions last week.
The Bears also have Khalil Mack who has been a very special addition this season. He has nine sacks, five forced fumbles and an interception to lead to a touchdown throughout this season. Mack’s size along with his speed is something that has been incredibly helpful for the Bears this season.
The Rams are the second best offensive team in the league and the Bears are the third best defense in the league; do the Bears pose the ability to defeat the best team in the NFL? Watch on NBC this Sunday at 8:20 PM ET.
Minnesota Vikings (+3) @ Seattle Seahawks (-3) 12/10/18
The Vikings are coming off of a tough loss against the Patriots that has taken them out of the playoffs for the time being. The Vikings are going to have a tough time against Russell Wilson. He’s shown that he’s able to do it all. He can rush if necessary and he has thrown 11 touchdown passes in the month of November.
With the Vikings season coming to an end, they have to win this game against the Seahawks if they want to keep their postseason hopes alive. The rest of the Viking’s season is going to be a little up and down. They have this week’s matchup against the Seahawks and they close out their last three games against the Dolphins, Lions, and the Bears. They are in win-now mode and need to come out hot and attempt to shut down the Seahawks rushing game - which ranks first in the league.
Do the Vikings have what it take to slow down the Seahawks and increase their hopes for a Wild Card spot? Watch on ESPN this Monday at 8:15 PM ET.
