MFST’s Week 16 NFL Picks
Going 11-2 in Week 15 has brought my total season record to 125-72, good for 65%. While my goal in the beginning of the season was 75%, I will attempt to reach 70% in the last two weeks. It will take a lot of correct picks, and with the season winding down it can be easier to do so. Here are my Week 16 NFL Picks….
Panthers 34 at Falcons 20
Carolina has outscored the Falcons 72-3 in the last two games between the two teams. I do believe it will be closer than that….but not much.
Cowboys 13 at Bills 20
Both teams are going nowhere fast to end the 2015 season. The winner of this game actually loses…out on draft position for the 2016 draft.
49ers 17 at Lions 20
The Lions have been disappointing this season, but the 49ers have been disastrous. Same with the Cowboys v Bills, the winner of this game actually loses.
Browns 20 at Chiefs 31
The Chiefs have won eight in a row. The Browns have managed to win at least eight games in a season only once since 2002. It’s not a shock who I am picking here.
Colts 27 at Dolphins 24
The Colts still have an outside chance at winning the AFC South and making the playoffs, but they need a win for any hope. Tis’ the season.
Giants 13 at Vikings 30
The Giants could have nothing to play for if the Redskins beat the Eagles tonight. Take away a suspended ODB and you have the Vikings winning easily.
Jaguars 34 at Saints 17
Blake Bortles looks like a legitimate star in the making. The Saints pass defense has more holes than swiss cheese, and Drew Brees is playing with a torn plantar fascia. Pretty simple pick to me…
Patriots 27 at Jets 20
To ensure they won’t have to risk a repeat of the 2010 divisional round in the 2015 postseason, the Patriots should do all they can to knock the Jets out of the playoffs now.
Bears 21 at Buccaneers 24
Lovie Smith gets a shot at his old team. I like Jameis to outplay Jay in a closely contested battle.
Texans 7 at Titans 13
Brandon Weeden vs. Zach Mettenberger. Sounds enticing doesn’t it? I can’t pick a Weeden-led team to win, so I default to Mettenberger.
Packers 19 at Cardinals 27
A possible playoff matchup, I like the Cardinals to win this one at home, but if they were in Lambeau it could present a different outcome. I f the Cards win, they won’t have to worry about that this year.
Rams 17 at Seahawks 28
Both teams have changed a lot since Week One, when the Rams upset Seattle. While St. Louis always plays their division foes tough, I do not expect the Seahawks to be slowed in this one.
Steelers 27 at Ravens 13
This rivalry always seems to involve close games, but not when the Ravens are led by either Matt Schaub or Ryan Mallet. Good luck Raven fans….
Bengals 10 at Broncos 21
A.J. McCarron is about to realize the difference between the San Francisco defense and the Denver defense.
