NFL Predictions 2013: Week 16

Week 15 is done and the favorites and dogs split with a 7-7-2 record. Favorites are still slightly ahead at 108-104-7 for the season. Overs had yet another big week with a 10-6 record, and are well ahead for the year at 118-99-4.

The Las Vegas Supercontest top five consensus picks finished 3-2, and hold a 29-44-2 record for the year.

Amid all the chaos in Week 15, I finished with a 3rd straight winning week on sides (10-3-1), with the Falcons as the only team to fall short. That game was a head-scratcher when you consider the Redskins turned the ball over 7 times. On the bright side, they decided to go for 2 instead of sending it to OT, which resulted in a teaser win. Unfortunately, Justin Tucker's 61 yard field goal spoiled the back end of the other teaser, so they finished 1-1 on the week.

I'll be adding Week 16 picks throughout the week and previews for all the prime-time games, so refresh for updates.

Survivor Pick

Week 16: Cincinnati Bengals

If you're still alive in a survivor pool, big props to you.  The options were limited for Week 15, but I figured the Eagles were the best option, especially against a Vikings team without Peterson.

Week 13: Carolina Panthers
Week 12: Detroit Lions
Week 11: Arizona Cardinals
