Dallas Cowboys vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Opening line: Cowboys -3.5; Over/Under 44.5
Time: 8:15 p.m. ET Monday (ESPN)

UPDATE 5:30 P.M. ET MONDAY: PointsBet USA has the Cowboys -2.5 (-120) less than three hours before kickoff. On Jan. 8, the Cowboys opened -3 (-105), and they've since spent all week toggling between -3 and -2.5, at various prices.

It's two-way point-spread action with a lean toward the short road favorite, with Dallas taking 51% of tickets/58% of money. On the moneyline, Tampa Bay is seeing 63% of tickets, but 56% of dollars are on Dallas.

"Moneyline and spread markets are extremely well balanced at this point. It will be interesting to see how the live action comes in on this game," PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn said, before moving to the total. "There's slightly more action on the Over, so the book will be pulling for the Under."

Ticket count is just beyond 2/1 and money just shy of 2/1 on the Over. The total opened at 44.5 and spent almost all week at 45.5.

Korn added that there's not much in the way of parlay/teaser liability tonight. However, Cowboys running backs Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott are getting plenty of action in touchdown player prop markets.

"We have decent liabilities on Pollard and Zeke to get TDs, so we'll be rooting for one or both to stay out of the end zone," Korn said.

UPDATE 1:15 P.M. ET MONDAY: Seven hours before kickoff, TwinSpires Sportsbook's NFL Wild Card odds board has the Cowboys at -2.5 (-118). Dallas opened -2.5 back on Jan. 8 and actually backed up to -2, then returned to -2.5.

Tampa Bay is taking 60% of spread tickets/59% of spread dollars. Opinion is more pronounced on the moneyline, where ticket count and money are 3/1 on the Buccaneers (+120).

"The public is siding with Brady and the Bucs," TwinSpires director of retail sports Zachary Lucas said. "There's also quite a bit of teaser liability tied to the Bucs, still left over from the weekend."

The total opened at 44.5 and is up to 45.5, with 59% of tickets/64% of money on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Dallas landed on Caesars' NFL Wild Card odds board at -3 (-105) late Sunday night and has since toggled between -3 and -2.5 multiple times, at various juice. The Cowboys are currently -2.5 flat, with point-spread tickets and money both almost dead even. Tickets lean slightly to Dallas, while money slightly favors Tampa Bay.

However, bettors like the Bucs on the moneyline, with ticket count 4/1-plus and money 2/1 on Tampa.

“I’m honestly not sure which way the betting will go on Monday night,” Pullen said. “I’m not anticipating a huge decision either way. I think Dallas is the better team, but you have the [Tom] Brady factor, and a lot of people saw what they didn’t want to see out of Dallas last week [against the Commanders]. Even though his numbers are down and he’s dealing with stuff off the field, Brady is going to get the benefit of the doubt from a lot of bettors.

"People know the Buccaneers had a losing record, but they’ll be intrigued with Brady as a home underdog.”

The total rose from 44.5 to 45.5 Monday morning at Caesars, and it hasn't moved since. That's even after the book took a $110,000 bet on Under 45.5. Thanks to that large bet, the Under is attracting 91% of money, but a much more modest 55% of tickets.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: It wasn't pretty by a long shot, but the Bucs – among the preseason favorites in the Super Bowl odds market – won the NFC South and the No. 4 playoff seed. Tampa Bay (8-9 SU, 4-12-1 ATS) beat Carolina in Week 17 to clinch the division.

That being the case, the Buccaneers had no reason to risk their starters in Week 18 at Atlanta. Tampa lost 30-17 as a 6-point underdog, cementing its status as the NFL's worst spread-covering outfit this season.

Fifth-seeded Dallas (12-5 SU, 9-7-1 ATS) ended its regular season with a thud at Washington. The Cowboys entered Week 18 on a 6-1 SU run that had them in the running for the NFC's top seed. But Dak Prescott and Co. fell into a 13-0 hole and never climbed out, losing 26-6 as 7.5-point favorites.

At The SuperBook, there's a strong early opinion on this matchup.

"This game has been one-way traffic on the Bucs plus the points, from both sharps and the public. We are down to Tampa Bay +3 (-120), and I think we will continue to write money on the Bucs," said Casey Degnon, senior risk supervisor at The SuperBook. "Come Monday night I would be surprised if we're not rooting for Dallas to win and cover. Some smaller bets on the Over, as well, but nothing of note yet."

The Cowboys and Bucs met in Week 1, with a stingy defense leading Tampa to a 19-3 road win as a 2.5-point home chalk.

Baltimore Ravens vs Cincinnati Bengals

Opening line: Bengals -6.5; Over/Under 44
Time: 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday (NBC)

UPDATE 6:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Just shy of two hours pre-kickoff, the Bengals are laying 8 points in PointsBet USA's NFL Wild Card odds market. The line has been all over the map, mostly due to the uncertain status of Ravens QB Lamar Jackson early in the week.

Cincy opened -6 last Sunday night, stretched to -7.5 by late Tuesday night, then briefly backed up to -7 Wednesday morning. However, Wednesday afternoon, as it became more apparent Jackson was doubtful at best, the line climbed to Bengals -9, and then got all the way to -10 Thursday afternoon.

But on Friday, the number receded to Cincy -8.5, and it's been toggling between -8.5 and -8 ever since.

Point-spread ticket count is almost 3/1 and spread money 2/1-plus on the Bengals. And moneyline tickets and cash are in the 9/1 range on Cincinnati, despite the hefty price, as the Bengals opened -250 and are now -425.

The total opened at 43.5, fell to 40.5 by midweek on Jackson's status, then bottomed out this morning at 39. It's now 40, with 71% of tickets/57% of dollars on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Cincinnati moved up 1.5 points just today at Caesars Sports, going from -8.5 to -10 on the NFL Super Wild Card odds board, before nudging down to -9.5. That's after Cincy opened -6 late Sunday night and steadily climbed to -8.5 by Wednesday afternoon, on the likelihood that Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson (knee) won't play Sunday night.

Point-spread ticket count is 3/1 on the Bengals in the early going. However, spread money is 4/1 on the Ravens, because one bettor came in early with a whopping $880,000 play at +6.5. Obviously, that bettor got the very worst of the number.

“When we opened it Bengals -6, it was a middle-ground number,” Caesars' Adam Pullen said. “That’s what we have to do when we’re not sure who the quarterback is. We want to put a line up, so we have to put it in the middle, so to speak. It’s looking unlikely, but if Jackson were to play, he clearly wouldn’t be 100%. So the line would be lower, but I’m not sure how much lower. I think [Tyler] Huntley is serviceable. He's not going to wow you, but he’ll be a good game manager. If it’s Huntley, the line probably stays the same or comes down a little. If it’s Anthony Brown, the line will creep up more.”

The total opened at 44 and by Wednesday afternoon plunged to 40.5, where it remains tonight. The Over is netting 61% of tickets, but a hefty 92% of cash is on the Under.

UPDATE 10:30 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson wasn't ruled out today, but he again missed practice and is seemingly on track to miss a sixth straight week. Every book moved off that information, including TwinSpires, which jumped from Bengals -6.5 to -8.5.

Point-spread ticket count and money are both in the 3/1 range on Cincinnati.

"The public is hammering the Bengals. And it feels like Bengals moneyline is in every parlay – 8/1 tickets and 15/1 money," TwinSpires director of retail sports Zachary Lucas said.

The total is already down to 40.5 from a 43.5 opener. The Over is getting 59% of early tickets, while 61% of early money is on the Under.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: These two teams are plenty familiar with each other, having slugged it out in today's Week 18 finale. Cincinnati (12-4 SU and ATS) posted a 27-16 victory over Baltimore, narrowly failing to cash as an 11.5-point home chalk.

The third-seeded Bengals are on an 8-0 SU spree entering the postseason, and they'd cashed seven straight and 12 of 13 before today's ATS setback.

Baltimore (10-7 SU, 6-9-2 ATS) limped to the regular-season finish line without QB Lamar Jackson, out the past month with a knee issue. The Ravens lost three of their last four games SU, but still mustered a wild card as the AFC's No. 6 seed.

"Lamar is expected to play here, but it doesn't feel like he's going to be 100%," The SuperBook's Casey Degnon said as he analyzed this game on the NFL Wild Card Playoff odds board. "Not too much action on the side or total yet, but I think the Bengals will be very popular amongst both teasers and parlays."

The Ravens certainly hope to have Jackson in the lineup this week. In Week 5 at home vs. the Bengals, Jackson and Baltimore notched a 19-17 victory.

New York Giants vs Minnesota Vikings

Opening line: Vikings -3; Over/Under 47
Time: 4:30 p.m. ET Sunday (FOX)

UPDATE 3:15 P.M. ET SUNDAY: With 75 minutes until kickoff, Minnesota sits at -3 (-105) in PointsBet USA's NFL Wild Card odds market. Late last Sunday night, the Vikings opened -3 (even), made a couple of quick early trips to -2.5 (-125), then spent most of the week at -3.

Since late Saturday night, the line has toggled down to Vikes -2.5 a couple of times, at -120 and -115. It's two-way action on the spread, with a modest ticket lean toward Minnesota and a modest money lean toward New York. It's two-way play on the moneyline, too, with a little heavier lean toward the Vikings.

"Another game with good two-way action, on both the spread and the total," PointsBet USA sports analyst Mike Korn said.

The total opened at 47, peaked at 48.5 a few times throughout the week and is now at 48. Tickets and money are running about 3/2 on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: This line has been almost rock-solid at Caesars, with Minnesota a 3-point chalk much of the week. The number briefly touched Vikes -2.5 early Monday, but has otherwise been painted to -3.

Spread tickets and money are almost dead even, with a slim nod to the Vikings. However, on the moneyline, tickets are 3/1-plus and money 9/1 on the underdog Giants (+140).

“This felt like a dead-solid 3. This was probably the easiest line to make for the opening round,” Caesars' Adam Pullen said. “We say the same thing about the Vikings every week: They're just in so many close games. A field goal isn’t a big spread, but the perception is that if they’re going to win, it’s going to be by three. [Brian] Daboll has done a fantastic job in his first year [as Giants coach], and they’ve had a great spread record as underdogs and overall. Either team winning wouldn’t be a shock, and everything is pointing to a close game.”

The total opened at 47.5, spent much of the past four days at 48.5 and is now 48. Caesars' splits aren't available tonight.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: Minnesota went 13-4 SU this season, but just 7-9-1 ATS, as the Vikings won 11 games by 8 points or less, ostensibly one score. In Week 18, the Vikes broke that mold with a 29-13 road victory as 6.5-point favorites against an undermanned Chicago outfit.

Meanwhile, New York went just 9-7-1 SU, but led the NFL with a 13-4 ATS mark. In Week 18, the Giants – starting a sea of backups, including QB Davis Webb – were in a 19-0 hole at Philadelphia. New York ultimately lost 22-16, but covered once again as massive 16.5-point underdogs.

"We took some respected money on the Giants +3, moving us to +3 (-120)," The SuperBook's Casey Degnon said of early activity in the NFL Super Wild Card Playoffs odds market. "This game was just played a couple weeks ago, and it was very competitive so it's not surprising to see the Giants get some early love. I think at some point, we will see some public money on the Vikings as we get closer to game day. We are also up a half point on the total, to 47.5.

As Degnon noted, No. 3 seed Minnesota and No. 6 seed New York have very recent history. In Week 16, the Vikings – laying 4.5 points at home against the Giants – got a 61-yard Greg Joseph field goal in the final seconds to win 27-24.

Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills

Opening line: Bills -11; Over/Under 43.5
Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (CBS)

UPDATE 12:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Thirty minutes before kickoff, the Bills are laying 13.5 points on the PointsBet USA NFL Super Wild Card odds board. Late last Sunday night, Buffalo opened -10.5, quickly stretched to -11.5, but then by Tuesday afternoon dialed down to -9.5 and briefly touched -9 early Wednesday.

Later Wednesday, when Tua Tagovailoa was declared out, the number climbed all the way to -13, with a few stops along the way. The line got to Bills -13.5 a few times Thursday and Friday, then this morning touched -14 before going back to -13.5.

Point-spread ticket count is 4/1-plus and spread money 9/1-plus on Buffalo. Furthermore, moneyline tickets and dollars are flooding in on Buffalo.

"It's extremely lopsided action on the Bills. The book will be rooting for a Fins cover and the Under," PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn said.

The total opened and is currently 44, peaking early in the week at 46.5 and bottoming out at 43.5 midweek on the Tua news. This morning, it climbed to 44.5 before inching down to 44.

The Over is seeing 63% of tickets/59% of money.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: The Bills are 13-point home favorites in Caesars' NFL Super Wild Card odds market. Buffalo opened -11 late Sunday night and actually backed up to -9.5 by Tuesday afternoon and -9 early Wednesday.

But once Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was confirmed out Wednesday, the line shot straight to Bills -12.5, then went to -13. Buffalo is seeing 82% of spread tickets, but a more modest 60% of spread money so far.

"When the line originally came down, maybe people thought there was value if Tua or [Teddy] Bridgewater came back and were hoping one of them was the starter,” Caesars' Adam Pullen said. “People are going to speculate, and you have to be careful early in the week when nobody really knows what’s happening. If Bridgewater is named the starter, even if he’s not 100%, this line is coming down. With Skylar Thompson, it’s a different story. It’s a difficult task to go into Buffalo with a quarterback who’s untested. But 13 is a lot of points for a playoff game. Crazy things have happened before in the playoffs.”

Caesars opened the total at 44.5, dipped to 43.5 by late Monday morning, then climbed as high as 46.5 early Wednesday. But with Tagovailoa out, the total fell to 43.5 by Wednesday afternoon. Splits aren't available tonight.

UPDATE 10:30 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: With today's news that Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion protocol) won't play, the Bills shot all the way to -13 at TwinSpires Sportsbook. On Sunday, Buffalo opened -11 and moved to -11.5 in short order.

The Bills are seeing 70% of early spread tickets and 84% of early spread dollars.

"Lopsided Bills money since we opened. It's our biggest liability of the weekend," TwinSpires director of retail sports Zachary Lucas said.

The total has been fairly a fairly steady 43.5 at TwinSpires, with 55% of tickets on the Under/56% of money on the Over.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: Buffalo capped an emotional week with a big win over New England to nab the AFC's No. 2 seed. Nyheim Hines returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, but the Bills got all they could handle from the Patriots throughout the game.

In fact, Buffalo needed a second Hines-to-the-house return – this time 101 yards in the third quarter – to go up 21-17 and didn't relinquish the lead from there. The Bills went on to a 35-23 victory laying 8 points at home.

Much like Baltimore, Miami has serious QB issues. Tua Tagovailoa has been in concussion protocol since a Christmas Day home loss to Green Bay, part of a five-game SU slide that nearly ended the Dolphins' season. In Week 18, Miami didn't have second-stringer Teddy Bridgewater, either, due to a finger injury.

So rookie Skylar Thompson got the nod, and Miami (9-8 SU and ATS) pulled out an ugly 11-6 victory giving 4 points at home against the New York Jets. That secured the No. 7 seed, and for what it's worth, the Dolphins covered when the Jets' desperation final play resulted in a safety.

The SuperBook installed Buffalo as double-digit chalk on its NFL Wild Card odds board.

"We took some action on the Bills, but are still at the opener," The SuperBook's Casey Degnon said of staying at Buffalo -11. "Tua is questionable, but this line definitely leans more toward him not playing. Some sharp money on Over moved us up to 44."

With Miami and Buffalo both in the AFC East, there have already been two meetings this season. In Week 3, Miami won 21-19 catching 4.5 points at home. And in a Week 15 screamer of a Saturday night game, Tagovailoa and Josh Allen traded blows, with the Bills coming out on top 32-29.

However, Miami again cashed as a 7-point road pup.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Opening line: Chargers -1.5; Over/Under 46.5
Time: 8:15 p.m. ET Saturday (NBC)

UPDATE 6:45 P.M. ET SATURDAY: Less than two hours before kickoff, PointsBet USA has the Chargers as 2-point road favorites in the Super Wild Card odds market. Los Angeles opened -1.5 late Sunday night, fell to -1 afternoon, but quickly rebounded to -2 by Tuesday night.

The line briefly got back to L.A. -1 Wednesday, and it's spent the rest of the week toggling between -2 and -2.5. Point-spread tickets and money are practically dead even.

"Great two-way action on both the spread and moneyline," PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn said. "We'll be rooting for the Under."

The total opened at 47, went to 47.5 Tuesday, returned to 47 Thursday and bottomed out at 46.5 a couple times this afternoon. It remains 46.5 this evening. The Over is getting 61% of tickets, but a more notable 76% of cash.

UPDATE NOON ET SATURDAY: Los Angeles is a modest 2-point road chalk in WynnBet's Super Wild Card playoff odds market, eight hours or so before kickoff. The Chargers opened an even slimmer -1 late Sunday night, advanced to -1.5 and -2 early Monday morning, then fell back to -1 by mid-Monday morning.

The line went to L.A. -1.5 and -2 Wednesday, -2.5 Thursday, and it's been at -2 since Friday afternoon. Los Angeles is seeing 57% of spread tickets/69% of spread dollars.

The total opened at 47 (Under -115) and is now 47 flat, though it spent some time the past couple of days at 47.5. Ticket count is 4/1 and money almost 2/1 on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Caesars Sports opened the Chargers -2.5, but that number dipped to pick 'em early in the week on the NFL Wild Card odds board. The number rebounded to L.A. -2.5 by this morning, but it's now at Chargers -1.5.

Los Angeles is landing 62% of early spread tickets/66% of early spread cash.

"It seems like a coin-flip type of game,” Caesars' Adam Pullen said. “The sharps [Wednesday] and the day before had a couple big bets to get it off pick and back up to Chargers -2.5. It’s a really interesting matchup though. You have two quarterbacks making their first playoff starts, but I think the edge might lie in the coaching department. We’ll see if Doug Pederson and his Super Bowl pedigree will show Brandon Staley a little something.

"But it’s anyone guess what will happen in this game, and it shows with the action we’ve gotten on it so far.”

Caesars took a $250,000 bet at Jaguars even money on the moneyline.

The total opened at 47 and has spent much of the week at 47.5. Caesars' splits aren't available on this game.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: Perhaps shockingly, Jacksonville – which had a combined four wins the past two seasons – won the AFC South this year. The Jaguars (9-8 SU, 8-8-1 ATS) at least managed to finish above .500, unlike their in-state playoff brethren Tampa Bay.

Jacksonville won its last five games SU (4-1 ATS), including two over a Tennessee team that mid-November seemed a sure thing to win the division. In Week 18, the Jags closed as 6-point home favorites against the Titans and got a late fumble-return touchdown to win 20-16. That gave the Jags the division and the AFC's No. 4 seed.

Los Angeles (10-7 SU, 11-5-1 ATS) had a late-season four-game run to clinch its playoff spot before Week 18. By the time the Chargers kicked off against Denver, they were locked into the No. 5 seed, regardless of outcome. Los Angeles came up just short in a 31-28 loss catching 6.5 points on the road.

"We've taken some action on both sides, but more respected money on the home 'dog Jags bumped us down to 1," The SuperBook's Casey Degnon said. "I think as the week goes on, we will continue to see good two-way action. Some [early] action on the Over, as well, but we are still at 46.5."

These two teams have history this season. In Week 3, with Chargers QB Justin Herbert trying to play through a rib injury, the Jags hammered L.A. 38-10 as 4-point road 'dogs.

Seattle Seahawks vs San Francisco 49ers

Rookie QB Brock Purdy has been steady for the No. 2 seed 49ers. (Getty)

Opening line: 49ers -10.5; Over/Under 42.5
Time: 4:30 p.m. ET Saturday (FOX)

UPDATE 3:45 P.M. ET SATURDAY: Forty-five minutes before kickoff, the 49ers are down to -9 at PointsBet USA. That's after opening -10 and briefly touching -10.5 Monday, then spending most of the week at -9.5.

However, point-spread tickets and money are in the 2/1 range on the 49ers. And despite a -450 price, bettors are laying San Francisco on the moneyline, with tickets 6/1 and money beyond 10/1.

"Heavy action on the Niners, so we'll be rooting for a Seahawks upset," PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn said.

The total made its way from 43.5 to 42 by Thursday and has been fairly stable at 42 since then. Ticket count is almost even, with a slight Under lean, but 71% of dollars are on the Under, with weather expected to be an issue today.

UPDATE NOON ET SATURDAY: A few hours before the first matchup on the NFL Wild Card Odds board, the Niners are 9.5-point favorites at WynnBet. Last Sunday night, San Fran opened -10, then briefly touched -10.5 Monday morning before returning to -10.

The 49ers then spent pretty much all week at -10, at various juice, before dipping to -9.5 in the past 30 minutes. Perhaps surprisingly, Seattle is actually seeing 56% of spread bets and 75% of spread dollars at WynnBet.

With weather expected to be an issue (rain/wind), the total is down to 42 from a 43.5 opener. And bettors are all over the Under, with ticket count 4/1-plus and money 9/1-plus.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Less than 48 hours before the opening postseason game, Caesars Sports has San Francisco laying 10 points at home. That matches Sunday night's opening number, with a brief peak of -10.5 Monday morning and an equally brief low of -9 Tuesday morning.

Beyond that, the number has toggled several times between Niners -10 and -9.5. San Fran is seeing 73% of early spread bets, but just 54% of early spread dollars.

“We’ve taken sharper action on the Seahawks plus the points. They’re a great story no doubt, but the 49ers are on fire," Caesars assistant director of trading Adam Pullen said. "Seattle struggled to score against them in both games they’ve played this season. When it comes to game time, we’ll probably be needing the Seahawks. Early in the week, it’s pretty much all sharp action betting the bigger amounts. The public is going to wait until later in the week or the day of the game to bet it — and the percentages reflect that.”

The total is down to 42 from a 43.5 opener, in no small part due to potential heavy rainfall Saturday in the Bay Area. Early ticket count is dead even, but early money is running 9/1 on the Under. Helping along that money discrepancy is a $110,000 bet on Under 43.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT ET SUNDAY: Seattle (9-8 SU, 7-10 ATS) needed to beat the Rams in Week 18 and have Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay lose at historic Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football. The Seahawks didn't look great in doing so, but beat Los Angeles 19-16 in overtime as 5-point home favorites.

Then it was up to Detroit – whose playoff hopes were vanquished by Seattle's win – to do the Seahawks a favor. And the Lions did, upending the Packers 20-16 as 4.5-point road 'dogs. That kept Green Bay out of the playoffs, giving Seattle the seventh and final seed in the NFC.

San Francisco (13-4 SU, 11-6 ATS) is the NFC's No. 2 seed, despite having to ride its third-string quarterback into the postseason. Rookie Brock Purdy has been nothing short of a huge surprise for the Niners, who are on runs of 10-0 SU/8-2 ATS.

Purdy first came on in Week 13, after Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a broken foot early in the game against Miami. Purdy threw a pair of TDs in that contest to help San Fran roll 33-17. In Week 18, the 49ers thumped Arizona 38-13 laying 6 points at home.

"Ticket count is about even so far, but there were some bigger bets on Seattle, bumping us down to 10," The SuperBook's Casey Degnon said of an early move at The SuperBook. "I think we will see San Francisco involved in teasers and parlays, so I expect to be rooting for a Seattle upset Saturday afternoon. Some decent action on the Over moved us up to 43, as well."

This is another matchup on the NFL Wild Card odds board that pits division rivals against each other. San Fran went 2-0 SU and ATS in this season's meetings, including a 21-13 road victory giving 3 points in Week 15.
