NFL Betting: Week 12 Recap of the 2020 Season
Week 12 of the NFL season saw some great individual performances, games affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, a team that didn’t have a quarterback, and the annual Thanksgiving games. Let’s recap the action from Week 12 so you can keep betting against their NFL odds for the upcoming week of play.
2020 NFL Season Weekly Rundown | Dec. 2nd Edition
Houston Texans – 41 Detroit Lions – 25
DeShaun Watson had a huge game for the Texans, as they embarrassed the Lions at home on Thanksgiving. The Lions performance was the final straw for head coach Matt Patricia, as he and the team’s general manager were fired the next day.
Washington Football Team – 41 Dallas Cowboys – 16
Antonio Gibson rushed for three touchdowns as Washington went into Dallas and beat the Cowboys. Dallas couldn’t muster up any offense at all, and many are still questioning head coach Mike McCarthy.
Atlanta Falcons – 43 Las Vegas Raiders – 6
The Falcons couldn’t seem to do anything wrong, while the Raiders couldn’t do anything right. After five turnovers and nearly 150 yards in penalties, the Raiders made everything easy for the Falcons.
Buffalo Bills – 27 Los Angeles Chargers – 17
Josh Allen has led the Bills to an 8-3 record and Buffalo is sitting atop the AFC East. Justin Herbert finally had a game where he looked like a rookie signal caller.
Miami Dolphins – 20 New York Jets – 3
Ryan Fitzpatrick stepped in for the injured Tua Tagovailoa and made easy work of the Jets. The Jets remain winless on the season, and unless a miracle happens, we’re pretty sure that we’re going to see an 0-16 season from the New Yorkers.
Minnesota Vikings – 28 Carolina Panthers – 27
Kirk Cousins is starting to look like the Vikings hoped he would when they gave him an $84 million contract. He threw two touchdown passes in the 4th quarter to lead the Vikings’ comeback over the Panthers.
New England Patriots – 20 Arizona Cardinals – 17
The Patriots are winning ugly, but a win is a win. This game wasn’t pretty, and neither quarterback was responsible for a touchdown, but the Pats came through in the end. Many thought that this was going to be a breakthrough season for Arizona, but they’ve been heading the wrong direction over the last few weeks.
Tennessee Titans – 45 Indianapolis Colts – 26
It was obvious that the Colts defense really missed DeForest Buckner. Derrick Henry ran wild on the Colts defense, as he rushed for three touchdowns and 140 yards in the first half alone. Tennessee dominated the Colts in this one, as Indy just couldn’t seem to get anything going offensively.
Cleveland Browns – 27 Jacksonville Jaguars – 25
Mike Glennon was impressive under center for Jacksonville, but he wasn’t quite impressive enough, as the Jaguars lost their 10th straight game. Cleveland continued to rush the ball with authority, as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt make up the best rushing duo in the league. Look out NFL, the Browns are looking like a playoff team!
New York Giants – 19 Cincinnati Bengals – 17
Daniel Jones left the game with a hamstring injury, but Colt McCoy was able to lead the Giants to the victory. With the win, the Giants now sit alone at the top of the NFC East.
New Orleans Saints – 31 Denver Broncos – 3
Due to all of their quarterbacks being exposed to COVID-19 (one tested positive), Denver had to bring a former collegiate quarterback turned wide receiver off of their practice squad for this one. As you can imagine, it didn’t go well. The Saints defense continued to dominate, and the offense hasn’t missed a beat with Taysom Hill under center.
San Francisco 49ers – 23 Los Angeles Rams – 20
Jared Goff just can’t seem to put things together for the Rams. San Francisco swept the Rams for the second straight year, and hindered the Rams shot at the playoffs.
Kansas City Chiefs – 27 Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 24
The Bucs couldn’t stop Tyreek Hill, as he had 13 catches for 269 yards and three touchdowns. Patrick Mahomes once again showed everyone that he is the best quarterback in the league.
Green Bay Packers – 41 Chicago Bears – 25
Aaron Rodgers dominated the Bears defense in prime time. His four touchdown passes led to the fifth straight loss for the Bears. Mitchell Trubisky once again showed that the Bears made a huge mistake in drafting him ahead of Patrick Mahomes and DeShaun Watson.
Seattle Seahawks – 23 Philadelphia Eagles – 17
DK Metcalf and Russell Wilson led the Seahawks over the Eagles. Carson Wentz struggled once again, and many are calling for Jaylen Hurts to start in Week 13.
