NFL Week 14 Early Games: Open Thread

Welcome to Week 14 of the 2023 NFL Season. Here is your early games open thread.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Week 14 of the regular season.

As we wait for the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers game this afternoon, we do have several games with rooting interests at play when it comes to the AFC Playoff picture. It’s tough though, because I could see rooting interest split between the Jaguars and Browns. Denver owns a tiebreaker, but is a game behind the Browns. However, if the Texans win the AFC South then their tiebreaker over the Broncos is voided out. I guess root for the outcome you think most likely. I’m going for a Browns loss here and focusing on that 7th seed only.

The other game I’m rooting for is for the Bengals to take down the Colts. The goal here for me is to make as many 7-6 teams as possible. Just make it a giant cluster with four games to go. Because if Denver wins and ends up in a five-way tie for the final two playoff spots, then their odds of getting in improve greatly in my opinion over if there were three 7-6 teams with one spot to fight over.

That’s where my line of thinking is on these games. Where do you stand?
