Week 15 of the 2023 NFL season is almost behind us, with just tonight’s Monday Night Football game to wrap things up. This week featured the lowest point of the season for the Atlanta Falcons, who have seen their playoff hopes go from “decidedly favored” to “need a miracle” in the blink of an eye. At this point, I’d say the Falcons are significantly more likely to lose out that make the playoffs.
Tonight’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks actually could have NFC playoff implications, however. The Eagles are battling to keep control of the NFC East away from the Cowboys, while the Seahawks are fighting for their life in a Wild Card race that is suddenly very spicy.
Let’s get right to tonight’s picks, which I’ll be making on a straight moneyline (aka picking the winner) basis. I’ll still provide the information on the spread and over/under, for those interested. At the bottom, I’ll show the rest of the staff’s picks for the game.
Monday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles (10-3) at Seattle Seahawks (6-7)
The pick: Eagles (-170)
Spread: Eagles -3.5 | Over/Under: 45 | Moneyline: Eagles -198, Seahawks +164
This game is getting a bit ridiculous at this point, as it’s possible that neither starting QB will play. Who knows what to expect in that case. I can only go off the overall quality of these two teams, and I think the Eagles are just the better outfit. Although the decision to make Matt Patricia the de facto defensive coordinator does fill me with an impending sense of doom.
