There are just two weeks left in the 2010 NFL regular season and I still am trying to figure out just what is going to happen in the NFL on the weekly basis. I thought I had it figured out, I really did, after four straight weeks of double-digit wins. DOH! 9-7 this past Sunday brought me back to reality, and fast! Now, with games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, not to mention playoff implications all over the place, I try may hand as I near my goal of 150 wins for the season. heading into Week 16 action, I'm 132-78. Without further ado, my NFL Week 16 Picks:
Carolina @ Pittsburgh - The Steelers are still trying to nail down a division championship and #2 seed. The Panthers are trying to get the #1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. As close to a lock as there is this week.
Dallas @ Arizona - A game that probably sounded a lot better before the season started. Tony Romo is done for the year, but the Cowboys have played well under Jason Garrett.
Tennessee @ Kansas City: All the Chiefs have to do is keep winning. Tennessee won't make it easy.
Baltimore @ Cleveland: You get the sense that the Browns' players know their head coach is a dead-man walking.
San Francisco @ St. Louis: The Rams might be the feel-good story of the season, showing just how quickly a team can turn it around. The Niners? They are just trying to get to the end of the season.
Washington @ Jacksonville: The Jags missed a golden opportunity to knock out the Colts. Now they need help. The Redskins will be happy to oblige.
New England @ Buffalo: The Patriots need a win to clinch home-field. they looked flat against the Packers and the Bills always play Tom Brady tough. Expect the best from Belichick's bunch.
New York Jets @ Chicago: The Jets got a much needed win against the Steelers last week and appear to have some of their mojo back. In a battle of two teams I have little faith in, I believe in the Jets' defense more than Jay Cutler.
Detroit @ Miami: Tony Sporano might be in trouble. Chad Henne may not be the answer. The Dolphins kicking game is a mess. No matter, they'll still beat the Bills.
Houston @ Denver: Tim Tebow is starting on the day after Christmas? Gotta take Denver.
Indianapolis @ Oakland: Never, ever give Peyton Manning new life. You will pay. Oakland will pay this weekend for Jacksonville's lack of execution.
San Diego @ Cincinnati: I'd make a buch of sarcastic comments about the Bengals, but they beat the Browns.
New York Giants @ Green Bay: The Packers could just be the best team ever NOT to make the playoffs. OK, that's a stretch, but the Pack will have Aaron Rodgers back. I like their chances.
Seattle @ Tampa Bay: A crushing home loss to the Lions last week nearly killed Tampa's playoff hopes. They'll rebound, but too little, too late.
Minnesota @ Philadelphia: Has there been a worse team in history that has gotten so much prime-time action? The Vikings are awful.
New Orleans @ Atlanta: Something tells me that Drew Brees isn't going to make it easy on the Falcons.
