SF
SF (-1.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”

SD v BAL
BAL
SD (+6.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
A TD connection between SD QB Rivers & trustful TE Gates pulls the Superchargers within a FG of tying this matchup late in the ball game. However, the onside kick attempt by SD is handily recovered by BAL to seal the win for the Maryland Edgar Allan Poe’s.

CLE v BUF
BUF
BUF (-3.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”

TEN v HOU
HOU
HOU (-7.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”

TB
TB (+4.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”

MIA v NYJ
MIA
NYJ (+7.0)
