  InspiredByMorphy: Two lines for black worth examining;

14 ...a6 15.Bxc6 Qxc6 16.fxg5 where white may have a slight initiative but black's king is safer.

15. ...Ne3 looks like the better continuation. A likely following would be 15.Qxf4 Qg4+ 16.Qxg4 Nxg4 17.d5 a6 18.dxc6 axb5 19.cxb7+ Kxb7 . Black's king's queen side pawn protection has been disrupted, but white's king is still in a worse off position, and it seems difficult to find a continuation for white that is more than equalizing at this point.
