What's your top upset pick for Week 14?

Matt Bowen, NFL analyst: Jaguars (+3) over Chargers. If the Jags start Gardner Minshew at quarterback, then I'll roll with Jacksonville as a home 'dog versus a Los Angeles team that has consistently failed to make plays in crucial game moments this season. Minshew gives the Jags more playmaking talent and movement skills behind an offensive line that struggles to keep the pocket clean. Go with the rookie here, Doug Marrone.

Mike Clay, NFL writer: Cardinals (+2.5) over Steelers. The Cardinals were embarrassed by the Rams on Sunday, but hung close with the 49ers (twice) and Buccaneers during their previous three games. The Arizona offense had scored three-plus touchdowns in five consecutive games prior to the Week 13 dud. The visiting Steelers have won five of their past six games, but four of those were at home. They're 2-3 on the road, with the wins by one possession over both the Chargers and Bengals. Pittsburgh's offense continues to struggle, with one touchdown in four consecutive games before putting two on the board on Sunday.
