Hello, sports fans! Welcome to Week 16 of the NFL season.

We’re almost at the season’s end, as teams have already clinched a playoff spot. The NFC will feature the Seattle Seahawks, who shut out the New York Giants this past week. The New Orleans Saints currently hold the number two spot, but Carolina is hot on their heels to try to take the NFC South from them.

The AFC features the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs clinching spots. Since both are in the AFC West, that means only one wild card spot is available.

The Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers all won to keep hope alive. This caused a crazy week for yours truly in the picks. I went 8-8, bringing my total record to 138-86.
