Week 16 NFL Picks

Week 16 of the NFL season is upon us and we have some exciting games coming up on Christmas Eve. The big game is the New York bragging rights game between the New York Jets and New York Giants. If the Giants lose, they need to win week 17 and hope the Eagles beat Cowboys week 16 and the Eagles lose to the Redskins week 17. If the Giants win, they win the East by winning out. If the Jets lose, they need a Bengals loss against the Cardinals to stay ahead of them for the 6 seed in the AFC and clinch the 6 seed with a week 17 win down in Miami. If the Jets win out, they clinch. Obviously, the Jets are in better shape playoff wise, but not in great shape. The smack talk in New York this whole week has been crazy between the Giants WR’s and Jets DB’s. It’ll all be resolved at about 4:30 pm on Christmas Eve to see who is the best team in New York and who is left standing and alive in the playoff race. Also, you got the Philadelphia Eagles going down to Dallas to take on the hated Cowboys as they try to pull out the season sweep and stay alive in the NFC East title race, if Philly wins and the Giants lose to the Jets, and then the Eagles win week 17 with a Giants win over the Cowboys, Philly wins the East at 8-8. On Christmas night, the now 13-1 Green Bay Packers host the reeling 7-7 Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field as they try to clinch the #1 seed in the NFC. On Monday night, the 11-3 Saints host the 9-5 rival Falcons at the Mercedes Super Dome. If the Saints win, they clinch the NFC South, and if the 49ers lose too, they take a one game lead for the #2 seed in the NFC. If the Falcons win, they clinch a playoff berth, and if they win week 17 against Tampa Bay, and Carolina upsets New Orleans, Atlanta would win the NFC South. It’ll be a fun week 16 with many playoff implications, so here are my week 16 picks. I went 3-11-2 in my week 15 picks, ouch. Also, I took the Texans on Thursday night -7 against the Colts, so I am 0-1 to start week 16. I am taking the Jets over the Giants, 24-23.

Denver Broncos (-3) over Buffalo Bills
Arizona Cardinals (+5) over Cincinnati Bengals

Oakland Raiders (+3) over Kansas City Chiefs
