    Re: Week 16 NFL Picks and "Game of the Week"

    Hey Tex, the Bills have been playing much better of late.  Fitzpatrick actually has a decent TD/Int ratio and their run game is solid.  This will be a tough one for the PATS, expecially if the "D" line is still short staffed.  I think the PATS "EKE" out a win, say 4 points.

    I will be at the game with my two boys and some other friends.  Their first NFL game.... Looking forward to seeing the PATS clinch home field advantage....

    Only games i disagree with are the BOLTS and the Saints.....  I pick the bolts to cover the spread and Falcons to win and cover at home....

    Re: Week 16 NFL Picks and "Game of the Week"

    1.) (9-5) New York Giants (+2.5) @ (8-6) Green Bay Packers: The Pack @ home against a shaky G-men defense. PICK: Pack;

    2.) (2-12) Carolina Panthers (+13.5) @ (10-4) Pittsburgh Steelers: Steelers will go for a shut out here . Look for CAR to score in the single digits PICK: Steelers;

    3.) (5-9) Dallas Cowboys @ (4-10) Arizona Cardinals (+6.5): PICK: Cowboys;

    4.) (4-10) Detroit Lions (+3.5) @ (7-7) Miami Dolphins: Sparano is getting canned. I just don’t see Lions with 2 solid road performances in a row though after 28 consecutive tank jobs PICK: Fish;

    5.) (5-9) Minnesota Vikings (+11.5) @ (10-4) Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles will win and rest people PICK: Eagles;

    6.) (5-9) Washington Redskins (+6.5) @ (8-6) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jags are the better team PICK: Jaguars;

    7.) (5-9) San Francisco 49ers (+2.5) @ (6-8) St. Louis Rams: Both teams looked like crrapp in their last games, but the lessor(of the CRRAPP) is the 9ers PICK: 9ers;

    8.) (6-8) Seattle Seahawks (+6.5) @ (8-6) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Seattle is winning the division PICK: Hawks;

    9.) (12-2) New England Patriots @ (4-10) Buffalo Bills (+8): The Pats D looked suspect against the young Mr Flynn. Clearly, a realistic point of concern in Patriotville. I like the Bills to cover in this one PICK: Bills;

    10.) (10-4) New York Jets @ (10-4) Chicago Bears (+1.5): I can’t believe I’m rooting for Cutler. The smokescreen Jest will lose on the Midway.  PICK: Bears;

    11.) (10-4) Baltimore Ravens @ (5-9) Cleveland Browns (+3): Ravens may be bowl bound, it’s all up to the play of the DBs. Against McCoy, no problem PICK: Ravens;

    12.) (6-8) Tennessee Titans (+5) @ (9-5) Kansas City Chiefs: I watched the Rams/Chiefs and was unimpressed with the lackluster effort of both squads. I don’t expect any help from Fisher as he hates SD. The Titans still have a shot at the playoffs though. 5 is too much.  PICK: Titans outright;

    13.) (8-6) Indianapolis Colts @ (7-7) Oakland Raiders (+3): I don’t think Peyton makes the playoffs this year PICK: Raiders;

    14.) (5-9) Houston Texans @ (3-11) Denver Broncos (+3): Denver wants Luck or Mallett. Another Stanford QB like Elway, so good Luck it is PICK: Texans;

    15.) (8-6) San Diego Chargers @ (3-11) Cincinnati Bengals (+7.5): The Chargers have annihilated the last 2 teams faced. No turnovers and win. The Chargers cold weather record is one of the best in NFL history. Bolts will even cover the 8 PICK: BOLTS;

    16.) (10-4) New Orleans Saints (+2.5) @ (12-2) Atlanta Falcons: 
    Like Tex, I like the Saints in a message game. I think this is the NFC Championship game part 1:
    PICK: Saints.      

         BEST BETS: Ravens, Steelers, BOLTS.

    Week 16 power ratings and game of the week

    Green Bay, apparently a good team no matter who plays at quarterback, didn’t show any dropoff against #1 New England.  They brought New England down a tad and raised themselves up a bit.  They acted like a great 8-6 team at Gillette, where a good list of pretenders have failed.

    I’ll put the usual warning on the week 17 games, that some teams (starting with the Patriots) will probably have nothing much to play for, and so those scores will be ignored.

    Game of the week:

    Last week versus the spread, Atlanta was nice to me once again.  Maybe my system works better with a longer list of games. 

    sea   tb     11.1   6   5.1

    Seattle is playing like they wish they could get the #1 pick in the 2011 draft.  In their last 8 games they have beaten bottom-dwellers Arizona and Carolina, but have gone down fast and furious against absolutely everyone else. 

    Minor call
