Home » NFL Week 15 Games: Thursday and Saturday schedule

The NFL will feature sixteen games in its schedule from December 15th, 2022 to December 19th, 2022. Four of those games will be played ahead of Sunday’s main bulk of games, one on Thursday and four on Saturday. That makes for an irregular week for scheduling for NFL fans. Here’s a look at the four pre-Sunday games with all of the odds or spreads mentioned below from bet365.

Thursday: 49ers vs Seahawks @ 5:15 PM PT (49ers are -3.5)

The Seattle Seahawks, the home team for this Thursday-night game, enter with a record of 7-6 thus far this season. They were formerly the division leaders in the NFC West, however, results over the last several weeks have seen that lead disappear.

The Seahawks are now major underdogs for a divisional title and are, in fact, in a dogfight to make the playoffs. They enter Week 15 on the outside looking in when it comes to the Wild Card picture, sitting behind both the New York Giants and the Washington Commanders.

The San Francisco 49ers enter this game with a record of 9-4 thus far this season. The big news heading into this game will have to do with their starting quarterback. Trey Lance went on the injury reserve ages ago, Jimmy Garoppolo remains out, and now Brock Purdy is questionable as of Monday. Will ‘cisco really have to go with a fourth-string quarterback? If so, then what effect will it have on the team’s level of play?

Saturday: Colts vs Vikings @ 1 PM ET (Indianapolis Colts are +4.0)

The Minnesota Vikings enter this game with a record of 10-3 thus far this season. For a team that has an elite record, they are a strange team that no one seems to respect.

Last week, they were up against the Detroit Lions and Minnesota entered the Week 14 game as underdogs, even though the Lions had a losing record. The odds held true in the game as the Lions beat Minnesota.

But the Vikings have an easier team in Week 15 than a surging Detroit team. The Indianapolis Colts enter this game with a record of 4-8-1 thus far this season. They also have Matt Ryan as their QB and he’s leading the NFL in INTs. At first glance, Minnesota looks like a bigger favorite than a mere -4.0.

Saturday: Ravens vs Browns @ 4:30 PM ET (Baltimore Ravens are +2.5)

The Cleveland Browns enter this game with a record of 5-8 thus far this season. It’s easy to say that they are out of the playoff debate, however, they are favored to beat Baltimore in Week 15. A good run of form could see Cleveland get back into contention.

The Baltimore Ravens enter this game with a record of 9-4 thus far this season. You’d think they would be favored against a 5-8 team, but Baltimore has injury problems with their quarterbacks.

Lamar Jackson is thought to be missing Week 15 as per his early week updates. Meanwhile, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reported that Tyler Huntley was questionable on Monday. NFL fans might end up scrambling to find out who exactly Anthony Brown is ahead of the Browns vs Ravens showdown. That’s their third-string QB, he’s a rookie, and he’s 3 for 5 on passing attempts in his NFL career.

Saturday: Dolphins vs Bills @ 8:15 PM ET (Miami Dolphins are +7.5)

The Buffalo Bills enter this game with a record of 10-3 thus far this season. One of their losses came at the hands of the Dolphins, however, that was a game that Miami hosted. The Miami Dolphins enter this game with a record of 8-5 and they have suffered two straight losses.

Tyreek Hill is the player to watch for injury updates in this game. Hill’s chances of leading the NFL in receiving yards took a bit of a hit last week when he had just 81 yards. The wide receiver is questionable for Week 15 as of Monday with an ankle problem.
