WEEK 16: NFL Breakdown & Score Predictions

Week 16 Picks 

Christmas is here, it’s finally here and yet I’m sad….. I know this marks close to the end of the regular season! Still….. we can be grateful for still having football to play and the playoffs are looming! Some teams have already made it through but we now get to find out who will be playing who. 

14 of the 16 game below have playoff implications! That makes this weekends games un-missable. It starts on Saturday night when the Titans and Redskins will look to continue their playoff hunt and keep their dreams alive! This is followed by the Chargers and Ravens. The Chargers are trying to lock up the number 1 seed in the AFC whilst the Ravens chase down the steelers to win the AFC North or the wildcard playoff spot. 

Onto Sunday and the highlights for me will be the Texans going to Philadelphia, the Cowboys at home to the Bucs and of course my Pittsburgh Steelers on the road in New Orleans. With the Colts hot on their tails the Texans want to wrap up the AFC south. This however is a very tricky matchup against a team that just came off rolling over the Rams. The Cowboys are coming off a drilling by Indianapolis last week and have the Eagles to contend with in the division now too. As for the Steelers and Saints, I think Big Ben and co will light it up, I really do……. I just think Brees will shine brighter as the Saints look to be the number 1 seed in the NFC. 

Have your team made it into the playoffs this year? Does this weekend decide if they do or don’t? 

Below we move on to our week 16 predictions. Look out for them every weekend during the season to help you make your mind up on those dodgy looking matchups and for a few helpful stats to back it up. I tend to miss the Thursday night game as it’s a little too early to post the rest of the predictions for Sunday. So much can change in the footballing world in just a few days.
