Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 2013 is near, but there are still 2 weeks left in this NFL season. Still some pretty exciting playoff spots up for grabs in the AFC and even more in the NFC. Looks like they will go down to the wire too. In some non-playoff news, the Jets have benched QB Mark Sanchez, skipped over QB Tim Tebow and are now starting QB Greg McElroy this week against the Chargers. If thay does not explain the 2012 Jets season to you, I don't know what will. Enough about them though, let's get to some exciting Week 16 Picks!
Saturday Night Football:
Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions
The rare Saturday night game, Atlanta fighting for the #1 seed, the Lions still in shock at how the 2012 season has gone.
Oakland Raiders at Carolina Panthers
Carolina is on a bit of a roll lately. Hopefully they can continue this into the 2013 season.
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins
Funny how one team's (6-8) record looks better than other team's (6-8) records. Miami has been pretty good this season, in many people's eyes.
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers
Big game. Likely for the #6 seed in the AFC, however the Bengals still have a decent chance to win the division. I like the Steelers at home though.
New England Patriots at Jacksonville Jaguars
Just 2 more weeks Jaguars fans. Then your calls for Tebow can begin!
Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs
Upset special here! I see the Colts falling on the road to the Chiefs. Though, I am not sure how that is going to happen. Just a feeling I have.
New Orleans Saints at Dallas Cowboys
Big game for Big D. I think Rob Ryan's defense will give them the edge against the Saints. Drew Brees may have other ideas though.
Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles
The Redskins are the feel good story of 2012 and hopefully that will continue into the playoffs. The Eagles story of 2012? Quite different.
St. Louis Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
What is with Tampa Bay starting strong and finishing bad lately? I think this game will be close though. Kinda want to pick the Rams, but I will go with the home team.
San Diego Chargers at New York Jets
Oh boy. Good luck McElroy.
Tennessee Titans at Green Bay Packers
Packers by 30+ in this game. Aaron Rodgers will have a field day.
Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans
This game could go either way. The Vikings need it more actually. Adrian Peterson searching for 2,000 yards against a tough Texans D will not be easy.
Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos
The Broncos are on pace for a BYE and the #2 seed in the AFC. Watch out.....
Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals
THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE! AND WE LET 'EM OFF THE HOOK! NOW IF YOU WANT TO CROWN 'EM THEN CROWN THEIR...well, you get it.
New York Giants at Baltimore Ravens
Tough pick here. I can't see the Ravens losing 3 straight games at M&T Bank Stadium, but I also can't see the Super Bowl Champs completely missing the playoffs. One of them is going to happen though.
SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL (FLEXED):
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
If you did not know, this game was going to be Chargers at Jets. You are welcome America!-says NBC. Really though, this is a great game. Can't wait to see how both play against each other. The 12th man could be the difference.
