There is no greater time to try to get into this competition than right now, as every week you beat me gives you another opportunity at that big cash prize at the end of the year. Let's get started right now with my Week 16 picks…
Detroit Lions @ Miami Dolphins (-3.5) – I know that every single person and their brother is going to think that the Lions are going to find a way to win yet another road game, while the floundering Fins just continue to be mired in their own sorrow, but I have to remember that this is just a case of the Lions being the Lions. Would you really want to back this team with QB Matt Stafford in this spot? What about with QB Shaun Hill? No? Then why are you doing it with QB Drew Stanton? Miami -3.5
Washington Redskins (+7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars – You might as well just flip a dang coin in this game. Who knows which Washington offense is going to show up in this one… The one where a quarterback didn't throw for two TDs in the same game for over two month of the season, or the bizarre one that saw QB Rex Grossman score four TDs. Sexy Rexy is coming back to the Sunshine State, and he really might be ready to shine when push comes to shove. So what the hell… Gimme Washington +7.
San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams (-1.5) – For the love of god, please let St. Louis win this game so we at least have a chance of the NFC West winner finishing at .500… St. Louis -1.5
Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs (-5) – This line makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. The Titans are only still technically in the playoff race because they have ran into teams that are more dysfunctional than they are right now. Have we forgotten that, contrary to popular belief, the Chiefs are a fully functional team? KC moves within one win of shocking the world and winning the AFC West. Kansas City -5
Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns (+3.5) – When I see 81% of the people on one side of a game and the line really hasn't moved all that much, you better believe that I'm playing the other side. Cleveland has been playing the last month of this season for the right to spoil the seasons of the Ravens and Steelers. The Browns will nip of these two teams in the butt and cost one of the them the division title. Baltimore is the team in my opinion. Cleveland +3.5
New York Jets @ Chicago Bears (-1) – Toughest game of the day, by far. New York is in a spot where it really isn't going to need this game if the chips fall properly around it, and though it is going to be trying to improve on the best road record in the league at 6-1, it isn't going to figure it out. I think the Bears are too tough… but then again, I just can't stand backing the Bears on a regular basis. This one could go either way, but I'll take Chicago -1 and curse myself later if QB Jay Cutler throws four picks in typical Jay Cutler fashion.
New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills (+9) – Yuck. If there is a team out there that I hate to back more than the Bears, it's the Bills. In fairness, these guys have been absolute gold to NFL bettors over the course of the last couple months, and that's because of the play of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. This is the biggest game of the year in Buffalo, and the Bills would love nothing more than to pull the upset. New England knows that it is going to clinch the No. 1 seed in the AFC at some point one way or the other. We know that the Pats are mortal, and it is encouraging to me that the Bills already hung around in this series once this year, before they got on a roll. Grab Buffalo +9.
San Diego Chargers (-9) @ Cincinnati Bengals – Who dey gonna stop dem Bengals? Everybody, apparently. The Bolts have kicked it into gear and look like an absolutely unbeatable team right now, but they know that they need to make a stand to have any chance of getting into the playoffs. A loss would be hilarious and would be well worth my money. However, I'll put my money where San Diego's mouth should be and back the Bolts -9.
Indianapolis Colts @ Oakland Raiders (+2) – The Raiders aren't in the greatest playoff positioning in the world right now, but they are in a position where they can really spoil the season for the Colts. Indy looks beatable and might be ready to fall from its throne atop the AFC South. Don't be shocked if Oakland +2 comes in for an outright upset.
Houston Texans (-2.5) @ Denver Broncos – Here's the biggest dog game of the day. The Texans look like a team just going through the motions right now, but just as they figured out how to beat the crap out of Rusty Smith and the Titans, they'll figure out how to beat QB Tim Tebow and his gimmick offense and the Broncos. Houston -2.5
New York Giants @ Green Bay Packers (-3) – QB Aaron Rodgers is back, but who really knows whether he is going to be able to play at the highest level this week after coming back from his second concussion of the season. The Pack still have revenge on their side in this one, as they know that they can really do some damage to the playoff lives of the G-Men with a victory here. New York might clinch a playoff berth with a win, but I'm still going with Green Bay -3.
Seattle Seahawks (+6) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Do I need to say anything else about the Seahawks aside from the fact that I clearly have a man crush on this team. Seattle +6
Minnesota Vikings @ Philadelphia Eagles (-14.5) – Remember to make your tiebreaker picks in this game!!! There really doesn't seem to be a tremendous desire for anyone to back the Vikes in this game, and there's good reason for it. QB Michael Vick is an MVP candidate. QB Joe Webb is surely to be an MVP candidate in the CFL sometime soon. There is just a discrepancy in this game so great that there really isn't a way that the Vikes hang in this one. There isn't a line high enough to keep me from taking Philadelphia -14.5.
