NFL - Week Fifteen Preview

Just three weeks to go in the regular NFL season and these are a few of the headliner games this weekend.

Green Bay (7-6) at Chicago (3-10) - Packers should roll in this one, but the temperatures are expected to plummet to sub-zero wind chills in the Windy City after a good amount of snow this weekend. Could be closer game than most might think.

Detroit (9-4) at New York Giants (9-4) - Two of hotter teams going right now in the NFL. This game will likely be a defensive battle.

Tampa Bay (8-5) at Dallas (11-2) - This Sunday night game could go down to the wire, although if the Cowboys get out to an early lead, they could easily turn this one into a rout.

New England (11-2) at Denver (8-5) - MUST WIN game for the host Broncos against Tom Brady and the Patriots, who are looking to build up a lead on Kansas City and Oakland (both 10-3) for home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

Tennessee (7-6) at Kansas City (10-3) -  The surprising Titans looking to prove they belong in the post-season talk, will get their chance to prove it against the surging Chiefs, who are one of the hottest teams in the entire NFL right now.

Pittsburgh (8-5) at Cincinnati (5-7-1) - The Steelers should win this road game, but the Bengals would like nothing better than to put a dent in the Steelers playoff chances.

Philadelphia (5-8) at Baltimore (7-6) - The host Ravens CANNOT be caught looking ahead to next week's huge showdown game (on Christmas Day) against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Oakland (10-3) at San Diego (5-8) -  Throw out the records when these two teams go at it. Raiders obviously playing for something, but never count out Philip Rivers and the 'Bolts at home, especially against their bitter rivals.

Indianapolis (6-7) at Minnesota (7-6) - Must win game for both teams as the loser of this one is likely going to be OUT of playoff contention.

Carolina (5-8) at Washington (7-5-1) - The Redskins need this one to stay in the thick of the NFC "wild card" playoff chase. Panthers are just playing out the string.
