The Infallible NFL Week 16 Straight Picks

As the season comes to a close and you have little left of fantasy football to hold onto, be happy that the playoffs are right around the corner and sports never really end in this country. So after a week of a few surprises and a couple more close games we come to a week filled with games that are either really good or really bad. Let’s take a look.

Week 15 13-3 Overall Record 156-67

Tennessee at Jacksonville. These guys are so bad it’s tough to choose who’s worse. Jaguars 23, Titans 17

Philadelphia at Washington. The Skins finally found their QB of the future and now he’s out for the final two games. Aw shucks! Kidding! Wouldn’t be surprised to see this one stay close. Eagles 38, Redskins 34

It's do or die for San Fran, can Anquan Boldin lead the way?

San Diego at San Francisco. San Diego isn’t terribly scary and the 49ers have been terrible. If Jim Harbaugh goes to Michigan then he should do everyone and favor and stay there. In other news: for as good as Philip Rivers was in the first half of the season, he’s been that bad in the second half. 49ers 27, Chargers 23

Atlanta at New Orleans. Well, this is for all the marbles. Still wouldn’t be surprised to see both of these teams with losing records in the end. If Julio Jones is playing (and not just a decoy) then this should be close. If not, it’s not a contest. Saints 41, Falcons 24

Detroit at Chicago. I get why Trestman is making this decision. He needs someone to throw all the blame on. Did anyone else outside of Chicago know that Jimmy Clausen was still in the NFL? Lions 28, Bears 19

Cleveland at Carolina. Cam Newton is going to force himself to come back and it might not even matter depending on how the Saints play. The Browns had such a promising start. Does anyone like Manziel? Panthers 24, Browns 23

Green Bay at Tampa Bay. The battle of the….bays?!? Oh well, Aaron Rodgers is rolling. Packers 38, Buccaneers 21

Kansas City at Pittsburgh. A tough choice, but the Steeler offense is doing so well right now it would take an extraordinary performance from the Chiefs to keep them under wraps. If KC decides to limit Jamaal Charles’ touches then this could get outta hand. Steelers 31, Chiefs 27

Minnesota at Miami. Miami has been on a bad skid for about a month. The Vikings defense isn’t terrible, but the Fins can’t lose this game. Dolphins 17, Vikings 7

New England at New York Jets. Rob Gronkowski has been better than expected this season. Everyone on the Jets is struggling. Patriots 34, Jets 14

Baltimore at Houston. The Ravens defense had a good one against a bad opponent. The defensive secondary is weak in Baltimore, but can anyone get the Texan receivers the ball? Ravens 28, Texans 20

Robert Quinn is an absolute beast.

New York Giants at St. Louis. It’s tough to trust either of these teams. Let’s roll with the young defense here. Rams 31, Giants 24

Buffalo at Oakland. Buffalo had one hell of a performance against the Pack last week. The Raiders are…well, they are the Raiders. Bills 30, Raiders 13

Indianapolis at Dallas. Why do I have confidence in Tony Romo? Cowboys 35, Colts 24

Seattle at Arizona. Somehow the Cards got through last week, but without even a back-up quality starter they will struggle against a jacked up defense. Seahawks 24, Cardinals 10

Denver at Cincinnati. The Bengals have been up and down all year. Unless the running game is going, I’m guessing Andy Dalton will be pretty bad. Broncos 40, Bengals 28
