2013 NFL Week 16 Preview

NFLGame of the Week

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers.  This is for all the marbles in the NFC South.  This is also huge because it will decide who the #2 seed in the NFC playoffs (no one is overtaking the Seahawks for the top seed).  As last week’s game in St. Lous indicated, the Saints are not to be trusted on the road.  Look for the Panthers to take swift revenge on the Saints and take over first place in the NFC South – and the #2 seed in the NFC.  Panthers 30, Saints 17.

“Who Gives Two Damns?” Game of the Week

Tampa Bay at St. Louis.  Sure, both teams have been competitive the latter half of the season.  You can’t sleep on St. Louis going forward.  But there is no buzz whatsoever for this game.  Hell I’m not so sure if the attendance will be half-full.  Rams over Bucs.

Upset Special

Bills over Dolphins.  Miami historically screws up in cold weather games in Buffalo and is prime for a letdown against the Bills.

Sunday’s Games

Bengals over Vikings
Chiefs over Colts
Jets over Browns
Redskins over Cowboys
Titans over Jaguars
Broncos over Texans
Lions over Giants
Seahawks over Cardinals (could have easily been my “Game of the Week”)
Steelers over Packers
Chargers over Raiders
Ravens over Patriots
Eagles over Bears

Monday Night’s Game

49ers over Falcons (this game should be over by halftime)

Last week’s record: 7-9 (DAMN I sucked…)
Year-to-date: 137-74-1*
*keep in mind I was on vacation in Mexico during week 2, so my record does not include that week

  1. I agree with most of your picks for week 16. However, I’ve noticed you don’t seem to think Miami has turned around their season. In week 14, you picked PIT > MIA which the Dolphins won 34 – 28 @ PIT. In week 14, you again picked NE > MIA and the Fins won 24 – 20. I believe Miami will beat the Bills @ BUF.

  2. Hi Scott! It’s time to eat humble pie….you were right and I was wrong. Not only did Buffalo win, but Miami laid a big fat goose egg!!! Next time I’ll pay attention to what you have to say….
