Week 15 saw six underdogs win outright. How many will win in Week 16?
With so many teams out of playoff contention, late season matchups are both entertaining and unpredictable. You see teams play surprisingly inspired football, but there are also teams that mentally check out and get boatraced. Take last week for example when we saw Tampa Bay, San Diego, Detroit and Buffalo get crushed. Conversely, Arizona and Carolina, despite being eliminated from playoff contention, played impressively en route to victories.
So which out-of-contention underdogs will put up a fight this week and who will lay down? Which underdogs playing to improve their playoffs chances will pull off an upset?
Because lines fluctuate as the week progresses, to be considered an underdog in this article a team must be at least a 2.5-point underdog.
