Atlanta Falcons (5-6) at Washington Commanders (6-5), 1 p.m., Fox
Line: Commanders -4.5 | Complete: 42
Taylor Heinicke has received 4 of his 5 begins for the Commanders this season, and Coach Ron Rivera formally named him the starter for the remainder of the season. After upsetting the Eagles in Week 10, Heinicke and the Commanders grew to become betting darlings: This week they attracted 66 p.c of the bets and 76 p.c of the early cash. However even at 6-5, Washington is on the backside of the N.F.C. East and must claw its means by the remainder of the schedule in the event that they’re going to make the postseason.
For his or her half, the Falcons are a half-game behind the Buccaneers within the N.F.C. South and must win the division to make it to the postseason. Neither of those offenses has been notably spectacular. The Commanders have averaged 4.5 yards per play and 165 passing yards per sport over their final three video games; the Falcons are relying closely on operating again Cordarrelle Patterson with tight finish Kyle Pitts out with a medial collateral ligament damage. These groups match up properly, so the factors on the unfold are worthwhile. Decide: Falcons +4.5
Chicago Bears (3-8) at Jets (6-4), 1 p.m., Fox
Line: Jets -4.5 | Complete: 39.5
The Jets had 2 yards of offense — a mean of two.7 inches per play — within the second half of a foul loss to the Patriots final week in Foxborough, Mass. Loads of the blame fell on the second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, who was benched in favor of Mike White on Wednesday.
Regardless of their file and never having the ability to generate any strain on opposing quarterbacks, the Bears have a much better outlook than the Jets. Justin Fields has been spectacular conserving video games shut in opposition to playoff contenders, although he damage his left shoulder and was listed as day after day. He’s a difference-maker and the backup Trevor Siemian isn’t. If Fields is out, the Jets’ protection will make fast work of chopping by the Bears’ horrible offensive line. Decide: Jets -4.5
Inexperienced Bay Packers (4-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (9-1), 8:20 p.m., NBC
Line: Eagles -7 | Complete: 46.5
The Eagles’ line of defense has wobbled in opposition to the run, an issue the workforce hoped to plug by buying the providers of the veteran tackles Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh forward of Week 11. They’ll get examined in opposition to the Packers and Aaron Jones, a top-10 again who has 778 complete yards and averages 5.4 yards per carry. Each week is a “must-win sport” for the Packers, who must go on a big run to have a shot at a wild-card berth. Decide: Eagles -7
