Week 16 Predictions

andrew-luck-colts1With four of 12 possible spots clinched last week, the playoff picture is starting to unfold. This week also gives certain teams the chance to clinch whether it is a “win and you’re in” scenario or another teams loss opening the door. Regardless, it should be a very interesting weekend of games as for some teams, their performance could make or break their season.

Last week: 11-5, Season: 150-74

Last week against the spread: 7-9, Season: 111-113

Game of the weak: Giants vs Rams: The real winner of this category for the week was the Titans/Jaguars game in a landslide. However, since that already happened, it makes no since to put them here. This is the only matchup this weekend that features two teams with a below .500 record. Both the Giants and Rams have actually shown improvement in recent weeks, so it should actually be a pretty interesting game. Giants 20 Rams (-5.5) 24

Game of the week: Colts vs Cowboys: If it wasn’t for the certainty of a Ryan Lindley appearance, I would have put Seahawks/Cardinals here. However, you can’t go wrong with this matchup. At this point, the Colts have nothing to play for. They’re pretty much locked in the three seed as they lost to both the Patriots and Broncos head to head. The Cowboys on the other hand are fighting for their playoff lives.

With the Eagles facing two sub .500 opponents, the Cowboys are in a position where they need to win out to guarantee a playoff spot. In a game with tons of shootout potential against Andrew Luck, it is much easier said than done. Colts 31 Cowboys (-3.5) 27

Eagles 27 Redskins (+7.5) 17

Chargers 20 49ers (-1.5) 23

Vikings 20 Dolphins (-6.5) 24

Ravens 24 Texans (+5.5) 13

Lions 27 Bears (+9.5) 17

Browns 16 Panthers (-3.5) 21

Falcons 26 Saints (-6.5) 31

Packers 33 Buccaneers (+10.5) 20

Chiefs 23 Steelers (-3.5) 28

Patriots 34 Jets (+10.5) 16

Bills 23 Raiders (+5.5) 17

Seahawks 24 Cardinals (+8.5) 13

Broncos 30 Bengals (+3.5) 21
