Six matchups between teams with records of .500 or higher highlight the NFL’s Week 14 schedule.

That starts in the 1 pm window with three divisional rivalries between Dallas and Washington, Kansas City and Las Vegas, and Baltimore and Cleveland. The Browns, Raiders and Washington are trying to go above .500 in their respective playoff races.

The last window features a showdown between San Francisco and Cincinnati, which will evoke memories of their two Super Bowls in the 1980s. The main event, however, is Buffalo in Tampa Bay. Will this be a preview of the Super Bowl?

Monday Night Football features another division showdown between Arizona and the Los Angeles Rams. The Cardinals can build a huge lead in the NFC West with another win.

NFL selections, predictions for week 14

  • Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings (-3)

Thursday, 8:20 pm, FOX

The Steelers and Vikings rank first and second, respectively, in sacks, so that’s which quarterback he gets the most support from in the running game. Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is still bruised and Adam Thielen (ankle) will be questionable. It’s an ugly game in a short week, and the Steelers find a way to steal another one in the AFC playoff race.

Choose: Steelers 20, Vikings 17

  • Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns (-2)

Sunday, 1 pm, CBS

The Browns are coming off a bye week and now have a rematch with the Ravens. Baltimore is 2-0 S / U as an underdog this season, and this will be another AFC North rock fight. The Ravens have won the last four meetings, including the last two in Cleveland.

Choose: Ravens 24, Brown 22

  • Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-10)

Sunday, 1 pm, CBS

The Jaguars are stuck on a four-game losing streak in which they have averaged just 12 points per game. Tennessee has had its ups and downs since Derrick Henry’s injury, and the Titans are 3-0 after a break under Mike Vrabel. Tennessee maintains its place at the top of the AFC North race.

Choose: Titans 28, Jaguars 13

  • Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5)

Sunday, 1 pm, CBS

Remember the Raiders’ 40-32 upset in Kansas City last year? The Chiefs probably will. Las Vegas is faltering in the AFC West race, and Kansas City is doing so with a defense that has allowed 11.2 points per game over a five-game winning streak. Patrick Mahomes II threw for 406 yards and five TDs in the Week 9 matchup.

Choose: Chiefs 34, Raiders 16

  • New Orleans (-6) at New York Jets

Sunday, 1 pm, CBS

Taysom Hill has a finger injury, which means the Saints may have to return to Trevor Siemian at quarterback. Injuries have plagued New Orleans this season, but the Jets rank 30th in the NFL in rushing defense with 133.4 yards per game. Saints screech past on the road.

Choose: Saints 23, Jets 16

  • Dallas Cowboys (-4.5) on Washington soccer team

Sunday, 1 pm, FOX

It’s the classic NFC East rivalry, and Washington has a chance to get into the mix in the division. Washington swept the series in 2020, and they are on a four-game winning streak in which they have allowed just 17.5 points per game. Dallas can take full control of the NFC East, but this is a tough place. We like disgust.

Choose: Washington 27, Dallas 24

  • Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (-3)

Sunday, 1 pm, FOX

The Panthers had a bye week to sort out a tough offense, and offensive coordinator Joe Brady was fired. Expect Matt Rhule to run heavy against the Falcons. The teams played an ugly 19-13 match on October 13. This will not be much different.

Choose: Panthers 21, Falcons 17

  • Seattle Seahawks (-7.5) vs. Houston Texans

Sunday, 1 pm, FOX

Russell Wilson led the desperate Seahawks to a win against the 49ers, and they can take advantage of that on the road in Houston. The Texans rank 32nd in the league in rushing defense, so that should lead to some opportunities for game action for Wilson, who is finally looking healthy again.

Choose: Seahawks 27, Texans 20

  • Detroit Lions at Denver Broncos (-8.5)

Sunday, 4:05 pm, FOX

The Lions moved into the win column with a last-second touchdown pass from Jared Goff; an emotional victory for first-year coach Dan Campbell. The bad news? Denver has a tough defense, is at home and still looking to stay in the playoff chase. The Broncos offer a reality check.

Choose: Broncos 28, Lions 19

  • New York Giants at Los Angeles Chargers (-10.5)

Sunday, 4:05 pm, FOX

The Chargers have alternated wins and losses in the past six weeks, but Justin Herbert should get them out front against a New York offense that mixed and matched parts with little success. The Giants have 1-5 S / U on the road this year, so Los Angeles continues to move in the right direction.

Choose: Chargers 31, Giants 21

  • San Francisco 49ers (-1) at Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, 4:25 pm, CBS

This will bring back memories of the Super Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XXIII matchups between the teams, so get ready for the Joe Montana highlights. Which quarterback stays fresh in a game both teams need to stay in the playoff race? Joe Burrow leads the winning season helping the Bengals snap a three-game losing streak at home.

Choose: Bengals 28, 49ers 25

  • Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3)

Sunday, 4:25 pm, CBS

Is this a Super Bowl preview? The Buccaneers are undefeated at home and now Tom Brady is revisiting an old rival. The Bills are second in the NFL in scoring defense and pose an interesting challenge. Brady is getting the best out of the Bills again, and don’t be surprised if Rob Gronkowski scores a pair of TDs.

Choose: Buccaneers 31, Bills 28

  • Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (-12.5)

Sunday, 8:20 pm, NBC

Depending on what happens to the Vikings on Thursday, the Packers could have a chance to finish off the NFC North title here. The Bears will be motivated by Aaron Rodgers’ spiel in the last game, but the Packers had a bye week and are 8-4 with a rest lead the past two seasons. They are also undefeated at Lambeau Field in 2021.

Choose: Packers 31, Bears 20

  • Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals (-2.5)

Monday, 8:15 pm, ESPN

The Cardinals snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Rams in the last game, and Kyler Murry and DeAndre Hopkins are back to push in the playoffs. Arizona can also take control of the NFC West. The Rams, however, rebounded from their losing streak last week. This should be a tight game to the fantastic end. If the Rams avoid mistakes against a Cardinals team with a turnover rate of +12, then a surprise is possible.

Choose: Rams 30, Cardinals 27
