NFL PICKS WEEK 16, 2012, or I Can't Believe We're in Week 16 & Football Season Is Almost Over

OK, I was 9-6 last week and John was 6-9. My season long record is 106-111-5. John's season long record is 101-116-5.

Here are this weeks' picks.

1.) Atlanta Falcons (12-2) (-4) at Detroit Lions (4-10)

   This game is in progress but we both have the Falcons.

PREDICTION: FALCONS

2.) Green Bay Packers (10-4) at home (-12.5) vs. Tennessee Titans (5-9)

I didn't watch the Titans momentous win on Monday Night as Mark Sanchez effectively ended his career as a starting quarterback. To paraphrase a line from "Top Secret", "Aaron Rodgers is not Mark Sanchez " (Or Mel Torme')

Prediction: PACKERS

3.) Carolina Panthers (5-9) at home (-8.5) vs. Oakland Raiders (4-10)

Well, it looks like Ron Rivera will be spared the unemployment line. The Raiders are well, being the Raiders.

Prediction: Panthers

4.) Miami Dolphins (6-8) at home (-4.5) vs. Buffalo Bills (5-9)

Who cares?

Prediction: Dolphins

5.) Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7) at home (-3.5) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (8-6)

The Bengals are keeping it close.

Prediction; BENGALS TO COVER

6.) New England Patriots (11-3) (-14.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-12)

If you spotted the Jags two TD's, they'd  still lose by four TD's.

Prediction: Patriots

7.) Indianapolis Colts (9-5) (-7.5) at Kansas City Chiefs (2-12)

A tidal wave is imminent in Kansas City

Prediction: COLTS

8.) Dallas Cowboys (8-6) at home (-2.5) vs. New Orleans Saints (6-8)

Cowboys need the win

Prediction: Cowboys

9.) Washington Redskins (8-6) (-6.5) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-10)

My season long nightmare is ending.

Perediction: Eagles

10.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-8) at home (-3.5) vs. St Louis Rams (6-7-1)

The Rams, at this point are more fundamentally sound than the Bucs.

Prediction: Rams

11.) Houston Texans (12-2) at home (-7.5) vs. Minnesota Vikings (8-6)

Interesting match up. Peterson is going crazy and is carrying the Vikings, but the Texans defense will crucify Christian Ponder.

Prediction: Texans

12.) New York Jets (6-8) at home (-2.5) vs. San Diego Chargers (5-9)

Greg McElroy anyone?

Prediction: Chargers

13.) Denver Broncos (11-3) at home (-12) vs. Cleveland Browns (5-9)

The Browns are building something just in time for Joe Banner to blow it up in the off season.

Prediction: Broncos

14.) New York Giants (8-6) (-2.5) at Baltimore Ravens (9-5)

Both teams are looking awful.

Prediction: Giants

15.) Chicago Bears (8-6) (-6) at Arizona Cardinals (5-9)

The Bears are not who we thought they were, but the Cardinals are exactly who we thought they were.

Prediction: Bears

16.) Seattle Seahawks (9-5) at home (-2) vs. San Francisco 49ers (10-3-1)

The Niners don't need this game but it's a statement going into the playoffs.The Seahawks have not lost at home.

Pediction: 49ers
