Week 16:
Oakland Raiders @ San Diego Chargers (Oak -5): San Diego had a great game, they aren't a great team. Oakland had a bad game but isn't a bad team. Oakland wins on the road by 9 as Derek Carr bounces back for a good game.

Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles (Phi -3): Washington is more fake good than the Eagles. I'll ride Kirk Cousins as the hot QB streak.

San Francisco 49ers @ Detroit Lions (Det -10): Detroit is good..kind of. San Francisco is bad...legitimately. Matthew Stafford plays strong.

Dallas Cowboys @ Buffalo Bills (Buf -7): Buffalo wins by 10 as something tells me Dallas wants a high draft pick to offset the bad season. Tony Romo out is tough on the Cowboys

Indianapolis Colts @ Miami Dolphins (Even): On paper Indianapolis should win but they are in disarray right now and Miami squeaks this one out at home.

Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans (Hou -3.5): Houston is playing like a top 5 team in the league, even without Hoyer they should top a banged up Titans team who is ready for this season to be over.

Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs (KC -14): Kansas City is becoming a serious contender down the stretch. Johnny will keep it competitive until the 4th quarter as Kansas City wins by 17.

New England Patriots @ New York Jets (NE -3): Always a fun rivalry, the Patriots are too good and Belicheck doesn't lay off the gas pedal late in the season. New England wins by 6.

Chicago Bears @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (TB -3): Tampa Bay wins by a touchdown at home against a Bears team who is back to bad again. Jay Cutler has body language looking like he's given up on the season.

Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons (Car -7.5): Each week this becomes easier, pick Carolina.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens (Pit -11.5): Pittsburgh continues their battle as the Ravens might be eyeing the top 5 draft pick potential. With that said, Baltimore won't want to be embarrassed.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ New Orleans Saints (Even): Jacksonville is on the downside but their QB situation isn't in flux right now. New Orleans is dead in the water without Drew Brees and Mark Ingram.

St. Louis Rams @ Seattle Seahawks (Sea -14.5): Seattle is back! They have also clinched so pouring it on won't be necessary. St. Louis won the last two and will keep this within two Touchdowns.

Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals (Ari -4.5): Arizona is the better team but Green Bay is bouncing back late in the season. Cardinals eek out a 3 point win behind David Johnson's running.

New York Giants @ Minnesota Vikings (Min -7): Adrian Peterson has gone for about 160 yards over 3 games after the big 158 yard game he had against the Falcons, I think he plays through the pain and has a big game. This will be a tough game for a Giants team without Odell Beckham.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Denver Broncos (Den -3.5): this should be a great game. Denver is playing well but I side with the Bengals barely on this.
