Merry Christmas! Ho ho ho! or NFL Week 16
Merry Christmas! Ho ho ho! I’ve got presents to wrap so here we go!
Cowboys (-6) over Cardinals. Plenty of wood to lay on the road. The Pokes have problems on defense, and under achieving secondary who should have had a break out year after last year’s promise, and an inside linebacker/nose tackle combo that has problems stopping a sink, let alone a solid run game. Meanwhile the Cardinals look nothing like the group that gave the Steelers a run for the money in the Superbowl 2 years ago. Add the Cardinals to the Terrelle Pryor sweepstakes. Pokes in this one.
49ers (+1) over the Rams. C’mon. Don’t you want to see a 7-9 team win a division just once? Mike Singletary can win the division, get his team to the playoffs and get fired. The ultimate season! Of course, the way the league knee jerks about stuff they don’t like from week to week maybe not. The Niners are 9-3 ATS their last 12 on turf, and the Rams are a horrid 5-13 ATS their last 18 in their own conference. Niners here.
Chiefs (-5) over Titans. No Vince Young, and Randy Moss is a bust. Ever since the League went to a 4 division conference every year three teams in last place the previous year win their division. The Chiefs will be one of those three teams this year. Chiefs in a walk
Packers (-3) over Giants. Last weeks melt down was the kind fo thing that can haunt a team for years. While Tom Coughlin was out choking his punter he overlooked the other ten guys on the field who failed to keep inside their lanes and let the winning score go by. Think about it, over the last 8:13 if the Giant offense made one play, just one, or the Defense kept the Eagles from making one play less, the game is a Giant win. The Packers get Aaron Rodgers back. The Giants are 2-8 ATS their last 10 on grass., and 4-11 ATS against teams with winning records. The Packers have covered 7 of their last 10 at home. It’s not going to end pretty in New York this year. Packers are the pick.
Ravens (-3) over Browns. Really? Only three? Santa comes but once a year, When he delivers take the gift. Ravens
Eagles (-15) over Vikings. Brett Favre still doesn’t remember his name and Adrian Peterson is hurting. NBC flexed this game because of Michael Vick. Eagles Cowboys two weekjs ago was the highest rated Sunday night game ever. Look for the Eagles to deliver points. E-A-G-L-E-S-EAGLES!
That’s how I see ‘em. Merry Christmas!
