Here’s the preview of my Colossus Bets syndicate for NFL week 13, and we’re in it to win £50,000. To be part of our Syndicate, you can get involved here.
DEN Broncos (7-12, 13-18) @ CIN Bengals
Suddenly the Broncos are back in the playoff picture and another win here takes them back to .500 with four to play. They have to be favourites against a terrible Bengals defense, and a newly installed backup QB in Jeff Driskel with Andy Dalton being done for the year. The Denver pass rush should relish getting after him.
CHI Bears (7-12) @ NY Giants (7-12)
On paper this looks like it should be an easy win for the Bears, with their pass rush dominating the Giants offensive line. They are playing their backup Chase Daniel for a second week, who admittedly looked solid against the Lions. But backups are backups for a reason, and so this game comes with some risk – especially if the Giants play like they did in the first half v Eagles and not the second. It could go either way.
BAL Ravens (1-6) @ ATL Falcons (7-12)
The Ravens have the best points conceded defense in the league. They will have a tough test against the Falcons who can still put up a lot of points especially at home. For the third week running Lamar Jackson, should he start, will face one of the worst defenses in the league. Can he do enough against them to keep pace with the Falcons offense?
SF 49ers @ SEA Seahawks (13-18)
Seattle now begins what looks like an easy run in to the playoffs against an NFC West rival most were expecting to be challenging for a playoff spot by now. The 49ers are in the mix for the number one draft pick and there’s no reason to expect that to change Sunday. Seattle should win comfortably.
MIN Vikings @ NE Patriots (1-6, 7-12)
If there’s one thing the Patriots know how to do, it’s win in November and December and rack up wins for a first round bye in the playoffs. It looks like on that road again after an easy win over the Jets. The Vikings saw off the Packers last week and will be feeling better about their postseason chances but going into Foxborough after showing streaky signs of good and bad form all year doesn’t bode well for confidence in them getting anything from the game. The Patriots look slower and less oiled than previous incarnations but they still have the nous to see out this game.
LA Chargers (1-6) @ PIT Steelers (1-6, 7-12)
Game of the week. A playoff preview. Probably the second and third best teams in the AFC go at it on Sunday night. The Chargers will miss Melvin Gordon a lot but the return of Joey Bosa has come at a great time to boost the defense for the run it. The Steelers will look to bounce back after the Broncos defeat where they seemed to give away a lot of opportunities. Expect a high scoring affair in this one as the 2004 draft quarterbacks go head to head. Slight edge to the Steelers for home advantage.
WAS Redskins (1-6, 7-12) @ PHI Eagles
The three way race for the NFC East title really heats up now. This one could come down to a last minute field goal or it could be a more comfortable win for Philly if Colt McCoy can’t get the Redskins offense going and the Eagles defense can get some 3 and outs. It’s going to be a hard one for the Redskins to win on the road for a second consecutive week.
