Buffalo Bills 

The Buffalo Bills want some sweet revenge after the New York Jets stunned them at MetLife a few weeks back in what was Josh Allen's worst game of the season. 

Buffalo has extra time to prepare for the Mike White-led Jets following their demolition of the Patriots last Thursday and I believe we see the well rested group begin to take control of the AFC East. The Bills haven't been home since Nov. 13 due to the blizzard and should thrive in their return. – Reed Wallach

The obvious choices on the board this week are the Dallas Cowboys at home against the flailing Houston Texans, as well as the Kansas City Chiefs taking on a Denver Broncos team that they've beaten in 13 straight games.

However, in my own personal survivor league, I've already used up both, but I still love the Bills to exact revenge at home this week over the Jets.

New York got the best of Buffalo a month ago with a 20-17 victory in the Meadowlands, holding Josh Allen to one of his worst passing games of the season. However, the previous two games he faced New York, he racked up four touchdowns with over 600 passing yards, winning both games by a combined score of 72-27.

Since losing two straight to the Jets and blowing a massive lead late to the Vikings, the Bills' offense is back on track, scoring just under 28 points a game. Factor in Mike White's likely regression, and this could end up as a blowout in Buffalo. -- Ben Heisler

Kansas City Chiefs

The Denver Broncos keep finding new ways to lose games, blowing a lead to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13 and failing to score any real points again in a 10-9 loss. 

The Broncos can’t beat the Kansas City Chiefs, and if you think this offense can keep up with Patrick Mahomes, you’re very, very mistaken. 

Denver is the easiest fade in the NFL, so I’ll play it safe and back the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes to win. – Peter Dewey

Miami Dolphins 

Although it's not the biggest spread of the week, the Miami Dolphins are shaping up to be a great survivor pick for Week 14 if you're lucky enough to still have them. 

The Los Angeles Chargers record may look respectable, but they're tied for last in the NFL in net yards per play. Their defense has been one of the worst in the NFL all season and their offense hasn't been as good as we've come to expect from one led by Justin Herbert. 

The Dolphins may have taken a step back against the 49ers in Week 13, but that doesn't mean they aren't an elite squad. Their defense struggled to start the year, but now they rank second in opponent yards per pass attempt over their last three games, which will prove useful against the Chargers, who lead the NFL in pass play rate. 

It's also a good sign that the line in this game has moved from Dolphins -1 to Dolphins -3, which tells me that the professional bettors of the world like Miami in this spot. – Iain MacMillan

Las Vegas Raiders

Although this seems like the perfect time for the Las Vegas Raiders to mess up and be the Raiders, they have a great matchup this week. The Los Angeles Rams have no offensive firepower, and the Raiders should for once be able to look passable on defense. Davante Adams has dominated over the last three weeks, perfectly complimenting what Josh Jacobs is doing on the ground.

The Rams have lost six games in a row and only scored over 20 points once. They have no offensive game to keep up with the Raiders, which is why Las Vegas is the best pick of the week. – Donnavan Smoot
