At Philadelphia -8.5 Washington
The Eagles are playing for pride with an eye on next year. They’re playing better football, despite playing for nothing.
Pick: Eagles -8.5

At Atlanta -10.5 Tampa Bay
The Bucs are going to lose their 10th straight game. The Falcons need to end the season on a high note after getting dismantled by Drew Brees.
Pick: Falcons -10.5

San Francisco -10.5 At St. Louis
The 49ers have nothing to play for, and even when they do, they have trouble scoring touchdowns in the redzone. Still, it’s the Rams. Kendall Hunter should be able to do enough to cover that big spread.
Pick: 49ers -10.5

At Minnesota -1.5 Chicago
Joe Webb’s fun to watch and Toby Gerhart can make plays in relief of AP, but I think the Bears are finally going to get that elusive Cutler-less victory.
Pick: Bears +1.5

Detroit -4 At Green Bay
Matt Flynn should be in by the 3rd quarter. The undefeated season dreams are over. Packers pull starters and Detroit sneaks away with a W.
Pick: Lions -4

At NY Giants -3 Dallas
I think this is a toss-up, but I like the Giants to win this min-playoff. The Cowboys always seem to find a way to choke. Gotta go with the home team here.
Pick: Giants -3

At New Orleans -7.5 Carolina
Drew Brees is going to keep flinging it. The Panthers should put up some serious yardage on the gorund, but I think the Saints are going to keep the gas pedal pushed.
Pick: Saints -7.5

Tennessee -2 At Houston
The Texans can’t treat this like a preseason game. Not after what happened the last couple weeks. Even if Arian Foster checks out early, the Texans should pull through.
Pick: Texans +2

Baltimore -2 At Cincinnati
The Bengals can turn the division upside down with a win at home. They can secure a playoff appearance and force the Ravens to hit the road. The Ravens seem to play down to the competition, especially on the road. Cincy will spoil Baltimore’s postseason bye week hopes.
Pick: Bengals +2

Pittsburgh -6.5 At Cleveland
Big Ben can play one quarter and still dominate this squad.
Pick: Steelers -6.5

At Jacksonville -3.5 Indianapolis
The Colts are going to rally their way out of the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.
Pick: Colts +3.5

At Miami -3 NY Jets
Miami’s playing strong, but they’re rolling without Reggie Bush, who’s been lightening up for about a month. Sanchez has takien a lot of heat this week, but if can avoid big mistakes, the Jets D should handle the rest.
Pick: Jets +3

At New England -10.5 Buffalo
Memories of losing Wes Welker for the playoffs might prompt the Pats to sit starters, but the team needs to win to ensure that they lock down the number 1 seed. Still, with the potential for sitting key players on the table, I think the spread’s a bit too high.
Pick: Bills +10.5

At Oakland -3 San Diego
The Raiders are going to put the nail on the Norv Turner coffin. They’re getting healthy and they need the W.
Pick: Raiders -3

At Denver -3 Kansas City
The Chiefs can ruin things for the Broncos. Tebowmania has subsided, but the game is in Denver. If this game was in Arrowhead, I’d go with the Chiefs. But it’ll be a friendly, playoff type atmosphere at home for Tebow and the gang. They win, they’re in.
Pick: Broncos -3

At Arizona -3 Seattle
The Cards aren’t going down without a fight, but Seattle’s just better.
Pick: Seattle +3

Week 16: 8-8
Season: 129-105-11
