    Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was out for the second straight game Youth Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , due to an MCL sprain in his right knee.with rookie Justin Jackson, who gained 62 yards during the second half of last week's comeback win at Pittsburgh, slated for plenty of playing time.The Chargers were without nose tackle Brandon Mebane for a third straight game, as he cares for his newborn daughter. The visiting Bengals were missing two key starters on defense: cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (ankle) and linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion). In other Week 14 lineup news around the league:— With James Conner out for Pittsburgh because of an ankle injury, Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley were in line for the bulk of the work in the backfield for the Steelers against Oakland.— San Francisco is missing two key skill-position players, running back Matt Breida (ankle) and wide receiver Pierre Garcon (knee), against Denver. The Broncos lost cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (broken leg) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ruptured Achilles tendon) to major injuries last week.— The depleted Arizona wide receiver group got thinner with the loss of Chad Williams, who aggravated a hamstring injury late in the week and was inactive for the game against Detroit.— Dallas left tackle Tyron Smith was active for a key NFC East showdown against Philadelphia, after missing the previous two games with a neck issue. The first- Cowboys, however, held linebacker Sean Lee out for a fifth straight week with a hamstring injury. Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan was inactive again with a back issue after being listed as questionable on the injury report. Jernigan has played just one game this season, two weeks ago.From the earlier games:— Miami's Danny Amendola played against New England Youth Mike Gesicki Jersey , his former team, after sitting out the last game because of a knee injury.— Baltimore put quarterback Joe Flacco on the inactive list for the fourth straight game, despite his return to practice this week with the expectation he would serve as Lamar Jackson's backup at Kansas City. Instead, Flacco rested his hip injury with Robert Griffin III as the second-stringer behind Jackson.— The New York Giants traveled to Washington without star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who stayed home with a quadriceps injury. The Redskins were in worse shape, with guard Tony Bergstrom (knee/ankle) the latest offensive lineman to be sidelined— Green Bay was down three starters on the offensive line against Atlanta: left guard Lane Taylor (foot), right guard Byron Bell (knee) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee/illness).— Indianapolis had T.Y. Hilton suited up against Houston, despite a shoulder injury that kept him out of practices this week, but fellow wide receiver Dontrelle Inman was out with a shoulder injury.— Carolina played at Cleveland without kicker Graham Gano, whose knee injury forced the Panthers to sign replacement Chandler Catanzaro, kicked a 59-yard field goal to beat the Browns in overtime earlier this season for Tampa Bay. Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward remained in concussion protocol after getting hurt last week, with Terrance Mitchell activated to make his first start after missing eight games with a broken right wrist.— Sam Darnold returned for the New York Jets after a three-game absence because of a foot injury, setting up a matchup of first-round draft pick quarterbacks in Buffalo against Josh Allen. The Jets had running back Isaiah Crowell (toe) and wide receiver Robby Anderson (ankle) back. They were questionable on the injury report. The Miami Dolphins head into Week 15 in a four-way tie for the AFC’s final Wildcard position. They have a chance to make the post season for the second time in three years if they can keep winning Womens Albert Wilson Jersey , while also getting some help from around the league. What help do they need?That is what we bring you this afternoon. Looking at the weekend’s slate of games, we break down which teams you should be rooting Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Houston Texans at New York Jets, 1pm ETThis game only makes the list in order to keep the Texans from falling back into the Wildcard chase if either Indianapolis or Tennessee is able to make a run at the division title. A Jets win would assist Miami’s strength of victory, but Houston clinching the AFC South is more important. Root for: Texans.Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos, Saturday 8:20pm ETThe Browns and the Broncos are both in the AFC Playoff picture, with Denver at 6-7 and Cleveland 5-7-1. This is simply about the team with the better record losing. Root for: Browns.Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Baltimore Ravens, 1pm ETThis seems straight forward. The Ravens are in the sixth seed, and Miami wants it. That should mean the Ravens losing is the best move for Miami. Instead, I am going to go another route. The Ravens could still move into the AFC North lead, which would take them out of the Wildcard hunt - and Pittsburgh’s tie, which a couple of weeks ago would have been beneficial for them Womens Bobby McCain Jersey , would now work against them as Miami would leap in frontof them. Root for: Ravens.Oakland Raiders at Cincinnati Bengals, 1pm ETThis one is actually pretty easy as well. The Dolphins beat the Raiders, so now that Oakland is out of the playoffs, the better their record, the better it is for Miami. Miami lost to the Bengals, and Cincinnati is still in playoff contention at 5-8. Eliminating them is the goal. Root for: Raiders.Tennessee Titans at New York Giants, 1pm ETAnother easy one. Tennessee is tied with Miami at 7-6. New York is in the NFC. Root for: Giants.Miami Dolphins at Minnesota Vikings, 1pm ETRoot for: Dolphins.Dallas Cowboys at Indianapolis Colts, 1pm ETSame set up as the Titans-Giants, with the Colts tied with Miami at 7-6 and Dallas in the NFC. Basically Dolphins fans are NFC East fans this week. Root for: Cowboys. New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers, 4:25pm ETTechnically, Miami has two paths to the playoffs. They have the Wildcard slot, and they have a slim shot at the AFC East. However Womens Danny Amendola Jersey , they would have to see the Patriots lose two of their last three, plus Miami win out, for the AFC East, and that is not likely. Instead, as explained above, the Dolphins could see the Ravens move into the AFC North lead, with the Steelers falling into the Wildcard hunt, and Miami would move ahead of them in that chase - which may be the better result. Root for: Patriots.Strength of Victory/Schedule Impacts:Detroit Lions at Buffalo Bills - Root for: BillsGreen Bay Packers at Chicago Bears - Root for: BearsWashington Redskins at Jacksonville Jaguars - Root for: JaguarsGames with no impact:Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons, 1pm ETSeattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers, 4:05pm ETPhiladelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams, 8:20pm ETNew Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers, 8:15pm ET
