2011 NFL Week 16 Picks

Tuesday December 20, 2011

Welcome to Week 16 of the NFL. What a difference a week can make! The Packers are no longer undefeated! The Cowboys are back atop the NFC East. Nearly every team out of the playoffs still continues to fight. What will the landscape be after this week when most of the games will be played on Christmas Eve?

The topsy-turvy Week 15 affected yours truly as I went 7-9. This brings my total to 139 wins and 84 losses. Here’s a look back at what I got wrong.

Game of the Week:

What game will Santa be watching this week? The following battle is for the NFC East. Guess who has a gut shot chance of making the playoffs?

The Philadelphia Eagles are still alive! Thank their rivals for putting them in an interesting predicament. All the Eagles have to do is win their two games and hope for the best. The Eagles need to beat the Cowboys this week and the Redskins next week. They also need the Giants to lose this week against the Jets but beat the Cowboys next week. It’s hard to believe that the once self-proclaimed “Dream Team” is still in the hunt after a disappointing season. However, it’s not over until it’s over. The Eagles have their NFC East rivals to thank.

Prediction: Eagles 27-24
