The NFL Week 14 fixtures 2021 will feature some games for the ages. We’ve reached the most important point of the season and teams will fight until the death for a playoff berth. Also, struggling teams will most likely throw in the towel and just tank.
NFL Week 14 fixtures 2021
Some of the upcoming NFL games will have strong playoff implications. Everything is at stake at this point in the season and contending teams can’t afford another setback. That’s what makes this part of the campaign so unpredictable and exciting.
Week 14 of the 2021 NFL season promises to be as exciting as it’ll be memorable. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the most exciting games for next Sunday.
Steelers at Vikings
Somehow, someway, the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to win games. It’s not always pretty, in fact, it never is. But they get the job done. The Vikings, on the other hand, continue to find heartbreaking ways to lose games they were in a position to win.
Now, these teams will try to keep their playoff hopes alive in a must-win game. The coaching edge clearly favors the visitors but Mike Zimmer could be coaching for his job on Sunday. Sadly, the Vikings will be without two of their best players in Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen for this Thursday Night Football clash.
49ers at Bengals
The 49ers dropped the ball and lost a game they just couldn’t afford to lose. You can’t let a double-digit lead against a divisional rival slip right through your fingers, especially with a playoff berth on the line. Now, they’ll face an even tougher task.
The Bengals, on the other hand, fought hard to get back in the game after being blown out early by the Chargers but it just wasn’t enough. Joe Burrow‘s finger was one of the Week 13 highlights but not for the best reasons. So that’s a story to follow. Expect this to be a hard-fought game between playoff hopefuls.
Bills at Buccaneers
Regardless of what happens between the Bills and Patriots, this game is going to be box-office. On one hand, we have a Bills team looking to prove that they’re real contenders. On the other, the reigning champions want us to remember they’re still the team to beat.
For most, this game marked a Super Bowl preview, and it’s not far-fetched to think that it could be the case. Josh Allen vs Tom Brady, two explosive offenses and porous defenses going at each other. What’s not to like? Expect this to be a shootout and one of the best upcoming NFL games.
Bears at Packers
Aaron Rodgers had a full week to recover from his injured toe and that’s terrible news for the rest of the league. He’s owned the Bears – as he even told the fans – for years and the Packers crave another win to try and catch up with the Cardinals.
The Bears could have Justin Fields back from his rib injury but the setting couldn’t be less ideal for him. Visiting Lambeau Field for the league’s oldest rivalry game and a well-rested Matt LaFleur defense is a nightmare for any rookie QB.
Rams at Cardinals
Monday Night Football will give us perhaps the best game of the NFL Week 14 fixtures 2021. Rams and Cardinals will meet again in a must-win divisional clash with dire playoff implications. Needless to say, Sean McVay’s team will look to get back at the Cardinals after a tough 20-37 loss at SoFi Stadium.
Kyler Murray threw for 268 yards and 2 scores while rushing 6 times for 39 yards. Now, the Rams’ defense will put more pressure on him with Von Miller and will have another big-play threat on Odell Beckham Jr. Also, this will be their only shot to win the division and maybe get the first seed in the NFC.
