NFL Picks, Week 16: It Will Be An Upset If Jets Don't Clinch Playoff Spot Sunday

The New York Jets should clinch a spot in the AFC playoffs this weekend, regardless of being distracted by Rex Ryan foot-fetish stories or whether they win or lose Sunday against the 10-4 Chicago Bears.

If the Jets go to Chicago and win, they are in. The Jets are currently two-point underdogs for the meeting at Soldier Field against the NFC North champions.

The Jets, though, can also clinch if either Jacksonville or Indianapolis ties or loses.

The Jaguars (8-6) are 6.5-point favorites in a home game against Washington. This is a game I believe the Jaguars win handily against the divided, playing-out-the-string Redskins.

The Colts (8-6) are two-point favorites to go into Oakland and take care of business against the 7-7 Raiders. Despite beating Jacksonville last week I am not buying that Peyton Manning can get his decimated team to the playoffs. I think the Raiders win here.

Check back on Thursday when I make my five official picks for Week 16 games in the NFL.
