Hi everyone! Today I want to discuss which picks I got correct and which ones I got wrong! So, let’s get started! I predicted that the Bills would beat the Panthers 29-18, but the final score was 31-14 Bills over the Panthers. I predicted that the Cowboys would beat the Giants 30-19, but the final score was 21-6 Cowboys over the Giants. I predicted that the Dolphins would beat the Jets 27-10, but the final score was 31-24 Dolphins over the Jets in a close game. I predicted that the Bengals would beat the Broncos 30-24, but the final score was 15-10 Bengals over the Broncos in a close game and a low scoring game. I predicted that the 49ers would beat the Falcons 27-23, but the final score was 31-13 49ers over the Falcons. I predicted that the Raiders would beat the Browns 24-17, but the final score was 16-14 Raiders over the Browns. I predicted that the Vikings would beat the Bears 29-26, but the final score was 17-9 Vikings over the Bears. I predicted that the Rams would beat the Seahawks 27-24, but the final score was 20-10 Rams over the Seahawks.
I predicted that the Titans would beat the Steelers 31-24, but the final score was 19-13 Steelers over the Titans. I predicted that the Cardinals would beat the Lions 34-17, but the final score was 30-12 Lions over the Cardinals in an upset. The Cardinals offense was not able to get anything going because they ran the ball only 3 times. They could not get in the endzone until towards the 4th quarter. They allowed the Lions to run all over them and blow them out of the water. How do you lose to a 1-win team?!! Unbelievable!!! They had a shot to clinch a playoff spot again last week, but failed again. You have to show that you are a playoff team! I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Packers 31-28, but the final score was 31-30 Packers over the Ravens. The Ravens were trying to go for the win on the 2-point conversion, but they failed just short. They also fall to the number 4 seed. I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Saints 33-26, but the final score was 9-0 Saints over the Buccaneers in a shutout and a low scoring game. The Saint’s defense was absolutely outstanding and that caught the fans of the Buccaneers stunned and Tom Brady and Bruce Arians! I predicted that the Football Team would beat the Eagles 30-23, but the final score was 27-17 Eagles over the Football Team.
So, I have gotten 8 out of 13 picks correct!! Now, let’s get to week 16 picks, shall we?! The first game tomorrow that I will predict is the Browns @Packers game. I think the Packers would beat the Browns in a close game 30-23. The Packers may have clinched their playoff berth as they will win their division. The next game I will predict is the Colts @Cardinals game. Everything is at stake for the Cardinals tomorrow night! The Cardinals are going to be facing a real test of the Colts running game with Jonathan Taylor who is a dangerous running back in the backfield. The Cardinals have to get off to a good start, stop the run, pressure the quarterback, run the ball more to set up play action, score touchdowns, make the Colts one-dimensional. The Colts offense and defense are very good and that’s why they are red hot right now. This would not be the time to play the Colts if you’re the Cardinals. The Cardinals are continuing to struggle at home this season. They can clinch their first playoff berth with a win over the Colts and it would be a really good Christmas wish. The problem is that the Cardinals just can’t do it. So, what does this mean? This should be a pretty good game. I have to be honest about this game. I want to say the Cardinals would beat the Colts; however, I unfortunately am going to actually pick the Colts to beat the Cardinals in this one 27-24. I’m just not that confident in the Cardinals as of now. If they can prove me wrong, then great. But right now, I don’t see that happening unless they can catch a break with other teams losing on Sunday. The next game I will predict is the Rams @Vikings game. I think this should be a pretty close game. I do think the Rams will beat the Vikings in a close game 30-27 because the Vikings may find a way to lose this game for sure. The next game I will predict is the Giants @Eagles game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Eagles will beat the Giants 34-13. The next game I will predict is the Bills @Patriots game, the divisional rivalries. I think this should be a great game. I think the Bills may actually beat the Patriots this time in a close game 31-27 because they came pretty close to beaten the Patriots last time. The next game I will predict is the Ravens @Bengals game, the divisional rivalries. I think this should be a great game as well. I’m going to give the edge to the Bengals over the Ravens 24-17 because the Ravens seem to be falling and they are not playing like they always have been which should worry the Raven fans here. The next game I will predict is the Chargers @Texans game. I think the Chargers will beat the Texans 42-24. The next game I will predict is the Buccaneers @Panthers game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Buccaneers will beat the Panthers in a close game 35-28. The next game I will predict is the Bears @Seahawks game. I think the Seahawks will beat the Bears 24-13. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Raiders game, the divisional rivalries. I think this should be a great game! I think the Raiders will beat the Broncos in a close game 23-20. The next game I will predict is the Steelers @Chiefs game. I think the Chiefs will beat the Steelers in a close game 38-30. The Chiefs are just riding high right now. The next game I will predict is the Washington Football Team @Cowboys game, the divisional rivalries on Sunday Night Football. I think this should be a really good game as these teams are fighting for their playoff spots, although the Cowboys just clinched their first playoff spot after the 49ers lost last night. I think the Cowboys will beat the Football Team in a close game 34-27. The last game I will predict is the Dolphins @Saints game on Monday Night Football. I think this may actually be a close game. I think the Saints will do enough to beat the Dolphins in a close game 32-26.
So, what do you guys think about the NFL week 16 picks?! I would love to hear your guy’s thoughts about the picks!
