The Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburg Steelers are in the middle of a race for the playoffs as both teams are winding down the stretch battling for the wildcard spot. At one point in the season it looked like the Baltimore Ravens were the team to beat and after losing back-to-back games in ugly fashion they still managed to get into the playoffs.
The Buffalo Bills started off the season as sweetheart picks to make the playoffs and even had an outside shot at the Super Bowl. Fast forward 15 weeks and they are headed towards another early pick in the 2013 NFL draft. The team is loaded with talent and they have some explosive players like running back CJ Spiller, but will not make the playoffs this season.
The Philadelphia Eagles have given up on the season and another coach was fired this week as it was announced that the Eagles fired the defensive line coach. It was also announced that Nick Foles will be the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the year, essentially ending Michael Vick’s tenure as an Eagle.
The San Diego Chargers are a mess. They are in a free fall and they are off one of the worst losses perhaps n team history. They allowed Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens to convert a 4th and 29 that ultimately led to an overtime loss and the end of Norv Turner as head coach in San Diego.
The Baltimore Ravens are one of the best teams in the NFL and they are the front runners in the AFC North as they head into the game against the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers are in a nosedive and will most likely miss the playoffs if they cannot get on a winning streak.
The Chargers are 9-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 11 games against the AFC and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a loss.
