Week 16 Recap
The Colts came up short on the team total, but thankfully they covered the spread despite heavy money coming in against them on game day. The Texans also got trounced to spoil the teaser. It was shocking to see their O-line get dominated like that. Even though I picked them as a Super Bowl pick, I'd be naive not to reconsider that once the playoffs start.
Week 17 PicksNote*: with so many games featuring meaningless action, this is perhaps one of the most tricky weeks to handicap. It's like a week of preseason, but without all the forthcoming knowledge from coaches. If news trickles out, I might be adding more late picks on Friday/Saturday.
Packers vs Vikings
Buccaneers vs Falcons
Texans vs Colts
Survivor PickI was curious to see which of the Panthers, Redskins, or Colts would spoil the party for survivor pools in Week 16, but everyone did their jobs. We've finally reached the end and TeamRankings has you covered in depth with all your options.
Given that I've already taken the Giants, Seahawks, and other big favorites this year, I'd be stuck with the Titans as my option for the final week. I wouldn't feel great about that pick, but the Eagles could be dangerous on Sunday. With Vick back and Reid's last game as coach, they might be up for a surprise against their division rival. The Giants aren't playing great ball right now and Philly has a history of winning these types of games at the end of the season. Seattle is a great choice given how they play at home. I'm a big fan of what the Rams have done this year, but it would take a great game on their part combined with a subpar effort the Seattle to pull off the upset. Fading the Jaguars is a logical step to close out the season.
