Spring’s Week 16 Results & Week 17 Picks

footballWeek 16 Results

Well it wasn’t a great week, but at least I got 9 of the 16 games. I don’t see how Minnesota clobbered Kansas City so badly, especially since they were at home! Did KC forget to show up for the game? And what happened to Denver? Is Houston really that good and they simply haven’t played up to their potential until week 16? I don’t know about that.

The big surprise to me occurred up in Seattle. Where did they go last week? Cause they didn’t stay home. Maybe they thought they were playing in an away game and they went to Arizona instead. Of course I picked my Skins against our dreaded rivals the Cowboys and I thought they might actually pull it off But alas, that didn’t happen.

With one more week to go, here’s my final results with a 56% win ratio and a 55% ratio for the season.

Week 17 Picks
Can you believe we’re at the end of the season already? Wow it went by fast. So this week I’m looking forward to Carolina in Atlanta. I think the Evil one’s Panthers want that final game for their great season a little more than Atlanta does. And I think that gives them the advantage. (I’m changing my pick. Last night I said this: I think Green Bay continues to struggle without Rogers in Chicago). Here on Sunday Morning I hear that Rogers is back and will play today. Now the question is, will he be rusty? Or will his return be a boost to the team even if it’s only in mental leadership? I’m going with Rogers and I’m changing my pick for the game. And Baltimore will be licking their wounds from last week as they head to Cincinnati. I think they have the heart, but I don’t think they will win against the Bengals.

The next big game we’re watching will be the Prince’s Eagles in Dallas. I don’t think they’re going to have a tough time since the Cowboys have lost Romo. Even if Kyle Orton, backup QB for Dallas performs well, the mental damage has been done and I don’t think in the final game Dallas will be able to overcome that.

And with the losses last week by some of the big contenders, I think those teams have something to prove in this final week. So I think Seattle, New England, New Orleans and especially San Francisco will easily handle their games this week. At least I hope so, because I’ve picked all of them to win!

So here are my picks for the final regular season week.
