Week 15 is here and the ride is coming to an end. For some, the ride has been a scary one, filled with painful screams and moments where their hearts have skipped. And for others, the ride this season has been filled with excitement and happiness. But of course, there are some that have been riding the roller coaster not knowing what to make of the ride at all. Soon some teams will have the end of their ride. And others will have their ride extend into the playoffs. Welcome to Week 15. Here is the General’s NFL Proclamations.
Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks
- The Rams looked absolutely horrible last weekend versus the Atlanta Falcons. And as bad as they were in that game, expect even more in this one. The Rams will give up over forty points again this week.
- The Seahawks are starting to get healthy and that is a bad thing for their opponents. And despite getting blown out last weekend versus Green Bay, they will recover this week, especially offensively. And that starts with Russell Wilson. Look for him to have at least 300 yards passing and three touchdowns in this game.
- The Seahawks defense will get after Jared Goff this week. The only question is how many times he will be sacked. My thinking is the Rams will eventually be overpowered up front and allow at least five sacks this game. Goff will be lucky to survive this game and not get hurt.
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets
- The Dolphins will be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill this week and probably the rest of the season. And in for him will be veteran backup Matt Moore. Look for Moore to have a solid game against the Jets that will include over 200 yards passing and one touchdown pass. Not bad for Moore at all.
- The Jets have been starting Bryce Petty at quarterback and he got a little rhythm last game against the 49ers. But in this game, some of that rhythm will be derailed. Look for Petty to throw two interceptions while trying to keep the Jets in the game.
- The Jets and Dolphins will both have their struggles this game. And those struggles will equate to this game not having one team score over twenty points.
Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
- Aaron Rodgers is missing at practice while dealing with a calf injury. And if he is still limping around when the Pack land in Chicago, then expect him to be limited. With that potentially being the case, look for Rodgers to get sacked at least three times in this game.
- Matt Barkley has the attention of his coach with how he has been playing these days. But in this one, he will draw the scour of his coach. Look for the former star quarterback at USC to throw three interceptions in this one while being frustrated by his receivers dropping passes.
- The Packers have a new lead receiver and his name is Davante Adams. The talented young receiver played excellent against the Seahawks and in this one, he will have a ball as well. Look for him to have at least six receptions for over 100 yards and a touchdown.
Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills
- The Browns have been the Browns and that is not meant in a good way. And in this game with more than likely cold temperatures, look for the Browns to be themselves again with RGIII leading the way. RGIII will throw for around 225 yards and will have at least two interceptions.
- The Bills were beaten down on the ground by Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers. And in this one, Isaiah Crowell may be licking his chops. The only thing that will stop him is the Browns turnovers on his way to 125 yards rushing and one touchdown.
- LeSean McCoy was not himself last week, as the Bills running game was not what it had been. Well, expect them to get a little healthier in this one in the running game as McCoy will rush for 150 yards and a touchdown.
Philadelphia Eagles at Baltimore Ravens
- The Eagles have sputtered since their bye week this year and now they face one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL in Baltimore. Well, with them facing this tough defense and with the Ravens being angry, look for the Eagles to score no more than 13 points.
- The Ravens offense was helped last Monday night by their defense. Well, they will get some help again with the Ravens defense showing up. But they will also help themselves offensively. And that all starts with Joe Flacco, who will throw for three touchdown passes with no interceptions.
- The Ravens and Eagles like to get after the quarterback. But in this matchup of birds, look for the Ravens to fly ahead of the Eagles. The Ravens will have at least three sacks in this game as a team.
Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs
- The Titans have been playing good, physical football this year. And the leader of that movement has been their offensive line and running back DeMarco Murray. Look for the line and Murray to combine to get the Titans to 200 yards rushing in this game.
- The Chiefs are not a team that can scare you with their speed or are they? Wide receiver Tyreek Hill will show off that spectacular speed to the Titans secondary as he takes in one catch for over 50 yards and a touchdown.
- The Titans got a poor game from Marcus Mariota in this one. Well, one poor game deserves another. In frigid temperatures, look for Mariota to only throw for 150 yards or less.
