First off I’d like to say everyone in my family wishes everyone in your family a wonderful Yuletide and Merry Christmas!
It’s Sunday and there’s only two weeks left of the NFL’s regular season. The next two weeks will be filled with commentary, confusing and convoluted scenarios for what a team has to do in order to make the playoffs. That team will have to win, that team will have to lose and your team will need other teams to do both of those to make a wild card birth. I’m terribly glad I’m not the one who has to know all that. I’m fairly sure I would fail at it miserably.
But I didn’t fail at last weeks results! Woohoo. I had 11 of the 16 games correct. I’m still trying to figure out how Denver lost, IN Denver to the Chargers no less. Did the Broncos forget where the stadium was? In my head Chicago and Cleveland was a toss up game, so I’m not surprised I lost that pick. But when the Saints lost to the Rams I thought my weekend was going to be long and depressing. Then New England lost in Miami!? What?!
Thankfully I bounced back with the afternoon games and my evening game picks pulled through as well. Yeah. My win ratio for week 14 was 62% and I updated that ratio to 68%. That puts me at 59% for the year so far. This time last year, I was at 74% so I have some stepping up to do.
Here’s my results for last weeks games.
Week 16 Picks
Onto this weekend. My toss up game this week starts off with Minnesota at Cincinnati. Now normally I’d say the Vikings would have an easy game with the Bengals. However, without Rogers, Minnesota has been struggling and Cincinnati has stepped it up this season. So I’m taking the Kitties to win.
The big games in our house are the Cowboys at the Redskins; and of course I’m going with my team and hoping Washington will smack Dallas down! New Orleans at Carolina, we’ll be yelling for Evil’s team and hoping the Panthers can handle the Saints. And the Prince will be hoping his Eagles can take it to Chicago. I’m not so sure about that game, but I think the Bears will have a bird for dinner.
So here’s my picks for the second to the last regular season weekend.
