In the season of giving, I've decided that I am going to give a gift to my readers this week -- one more game! Oh yes, after going 2-3 last week and dropping my overall record to 35-32-2, I've decided the best gift I could give people is more me!
Here are my Week 16 NFL Picks and Predictions:
Jets (-3) vs. Giants (Sat., 1 p.m. on FOX): Holy! What a match up this is! So, who's going to be the winner between two teams that should be better than their records? -- Jets (8-6), Giants (7-7). Well, if history proves anything, it's that in games like this the G-Men and Eli Manning find a way to win and they will Saturday. Prediction: Giants 24, Jets 21.
Broncos (-3) at Bills (Sat., 1 p.m. on CBS): Tim Tebow's magic ran out last week against the New England Patriots. This week, there will be more talk of Tebow as he helps Denver (8-6) beat slumping Buffalo (5-6). Prediction: Broncos 20, Bills 17.
Lions (-3) vs. Chargers (Sat., 4:05 p.m. on CBS): Detroit (9-5) pulled off a remarkable comeback last week, and I think they will use that momentum and beat San Diego (7-7). Prediction: Lions 28, Chargers 24.
Cowboys (-3) vs. Eagles (Sat., 4:15 p.m. on CBS): This just feels like a game that Dallas is going to blow, no? Philadelphia (6-8) continues its rolls by downing Dallas (8-6) and makes the NFC East race interesting. Prediction: Eagles 27, Cowboys 21.
Packers (-13) vs. Bears (Sun., 8:20 on NBC): I have a feeling that Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay (13-1) are going to want to put prove to everyone how good they are after slipping up last week. Chicago (7-7) loses in a rout. Prediction: Packers 35, Bears 14.
Saints (-7) vs. Falcons (Mon., 8:30 p.m. on ESPN): New Orleans (11-3) doesn't need this game to hang onto the NFC South lead, so I have a feeling that Atlanta will sneak out this one. Prediction: Atlanta 27, Saints 24.
Last Week: 2-3-0. Overall: 35-32-2.
