A massive upset by the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football cost one of BetSided's editors a Survivor Pool pick this week, but the team still went 2-2, meaning some people are still alive if they tailed those selections.

With just five weeks left in the regular season, it's getting down to crunch time with these Survivor Pools. There are only so many teams each person has left to use, but we're trying to mix up our selections to give bettors a chance to find a team that works for them.

NFL Week 14 Survivor Pool Picks

Miami Dolphins

I've held off on taking the Miami Dolphins until I could find an easy spot for them at home, and man is this one easy in Week 14.

The Dolphins are 13.5-point favorites at home where they are 4-1 ATS as home favorites and winning games by an average margin of over 21 points. The Tennessee Titans stand very little chance, as their defense has been wildly inconsistent this season.

I don't see Will Levis and company keeping up with the No. 1 offense in the NFL. -- Peter Dewey

Green Bay Packers

If there was an award for a team that has improved the most since September, the Green Bay Packers would win it. They are a legitimate playoff team now and Jordan Love has taken massive strides since his first few starts of the season.

As a whole, the Packers are now 11th in the NFL in Net Yards per Play at +0.2.

If you haven't used them in survivor yet, now is the time to do so. Don't be fooled by the New York Giants' two latest wins against the Washington Commanders and New England Patriots, they're still one of the worst teams in the NFL ranking 31st in both EPA per Play and Success Rate.

Packers have the potential to be a sweat-free win in Week 14 of your Survivor Pools. -- Iain MacMillan

Houston Texans

There's no denying that this Houston Texans team is one of the most fun to root for in the NFL, and they have a lot to play for with the playoffs within reach.

New York, on the other hand, looks as if it's waving the white flag. Zach Wilson wouldn't even commit to starting at quarterback, which says all you need to know about the state of the offense. -- Vinnie Portell
