|Pencil's Week 16 NFL Pick 'Ems|
dig me out | dig me in | out my head, out of my dinner
New York Giants (10-4) @ *Philadelphia Eagles (5-9)
Week 16 bitches. Historically speaking the Eagles tend to have the Giants number, especially in situations like this one, so as much as I don’t want to I think I’ll have to go with the Eagles here.

*Miami Dolphins (9-5) @ Buffalo Bills (7-7)
God it’s such a shame that the Bills will float around the .500 mark this year. They are a team that has plenty of talent, but they just need something to really make it all come together. Personally, I believe the addition of another quality receiver next to Watkins could do wonders for this team. That kid from Western Michigan, Corey Davis (who went to the same High School as me fun fact) could be a quality draft choice if you ask me, but their air defense also needs some work. If they build on those things they should be able to snap their playoff-less streak as soon as next season. Oh yeah, and the Dolphins are surprisingly good this year so go them.
Leaves Turn Inside You
New York Jets (4-10) @ *New England Patriots (12-2)
Call this a gut feeling, but this coulllldddd be the upset of the week here, seeing as close as the Jets still made it a few weeks ago. While I said that about the Chiefs/Titans game and WAS RIGHT AND DIDN’T GO WITH TENNESSEE, I would be actually shocked to see myself be right on this, so I’m playing it safe and picking the evil empire.
*Tennessee Titans (8-6) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (2-12)
Holy shit Jacksonville actually did it and fired Gus lol. The Titans actually did the unlikely and pulled the back-to-back upsets, and they sorta solidified themselves as the most deserving team in the AFC South to win it with that, so I’m going with them this week.
*Minnesota Vikings (7-7) @ Green Bobby Flay Packers (8-6)
If there were a time for the Packers to blow it, it would be right now; and my gut is saying that they’ll blow it like no one has blown it before. Which is fine by me because fuck those guys man.

*San Diego Chargers (5-9) @ Cleveland Browns (zero)
Despite this game being pretttttty winnable for the miserable Browns, I do think fate will step in and set up the penultimate step towards the road to 0-16. But truth be told, if/when that happens, there is literally nowhere to go but up, shit just ask the Lions. It won’t be instantaneous, but it’ll happen.
The Heat Death of the Universe
Washington Way to fucking blow it last week (7-6-1) @ *Chicago Bears (3-11)
A meeting that would have been epic in the 1980’s, the Bears and the ______’s have both seen better days, but my gut is telling me that the Bears will make Washington the recipient of back-to-back upset losses… And Chicago’s weather is absolutely dreadful right now so that too.

What It Takes to Move Forward
*Atlanta Falcons (9-5) @ Carolina Panthers (6-8)
You know, this one should actually come down to the wire truth be told. These match-ups have turned into quite the divisional spectacle, and both teams are coming off convincing wins last week too, but Atlanta has been (mostly) consistent, compared to Carolina’s all-around more disappointing season, so I have to go with the Falcons this week.
Indianapolis Colts (7-7) @ *Oakland Raiders (11-3)
Even with Derek Carr playing a bit… Off the last few weeks, the Colts defense is shit-tier and I hate them so fuck it, Oakland wins it in what’s probably going to end up being a shoot-out.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) @ *New Orleans Saints (6-8)
So my hunch of Brees waking up against the Cardinals ended up coming true, and just in time for the Buccaneers re-match, a team that absolutely humiliated them two weeks ago. Despite Brees being a Saint in more ways than one, I do think he’ll want to get his revenge here, and as long as the Saints D can be okay for a couple of drives, he’ll get it. But it’ll still be a close as shit game.
Chaos is Me
Arizona Cardinals (5-8-1) @ *Seattle Seahawks (9-4-1)
Boy has the NFC West gone downhill. If this one ties again I would be too entertained. Same with if Seattle loses. But I can’t see either happening so I’ll go with the Seabuttholes here.

*San Francisco 49ers (1-13) @ Los Angeles Rams (4-10)
I had a feeling during week 7 or so that the only two wins this season my niners will get would be against the Rams, and boy does it look like that I’ll be right.
|13||Jimmy Eat World|
*Cincinnati Bengals (5-8-1) @ Houston Texans (8-6)
THE TITANS MUST WIN THE SOUTH, AND THIS IS THE ONLY WAY IT HAS TO HAPPEN. COME ON BENGALS, GET REVENGE ON A TEAM THAT BEAT YOU IN THE PLAYOFFS.
The Money Store
*Baltimore Ravens (8-6) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5)
It feels destined to happen for the Ravens to get some insane winning streak against the Steelers, and damn it that must continue this week.
|15||Minus the Bear|
Planet of Ice
Denver Broncos (8-6) @ *Kansas City Chiefs (10-4)
So the two teams that the Titans managed to squeeze by now go head to head in a very worthwhile primetime game… Buttt that Denver offense is pretty bad and the Broncos have proven their defense can’t always pick up the pace, especially against a team that usually has their number. Expect another close game that the KC wins.

*Detroit Lions (9-5) @ Dallas Cowboys (12-2)
Annnnnnd to close out Week 15, I prove to be a stubborn mule yet again and pick against the Cowboys. Please happen. Detroit deserves the division, and the Cowboys have a guaranteed first round bye anyways.
|also only went 8-8 last week oops|
|the jets have totally quit trying lol|
i would loose my mind if they ended up winning some how though
|lions 27 cowboys 23 merry saturnalia to me|
|tbh I can see Stafford having the comeback to end all comebacks against Dallas|
it would be perfectly storybook
|Saying my Steelers are gonna lose to the Ravens while making the album one of my 5s is a low blow dude|
|Steelers are winning.|
|lol i think your hate for the packers has completely illegitimized your NFC N predictions|
(12-2) lions, at dallas? not happening.
|shit lol im tired read that as a score prediction not the cowboys record|
|That Packers-Bears game last week was painfully close.|
Btw, props on 2, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, and 16. I love all those albums. This is the most amount albums that I've liked on one of your pick em's lists. I'mma feeling that Bears win.
|"Call this a gut feeling, but this coulllldddd be the upset of the week here"|
|cant help but notice that you get a lot of games wrong every week|
the winning is going to your head!
|remember when ya'll thought the vikings would win the super bowl and the packers would miss the playoffs? remember when you laughed at me for disagreeing with those statements? i memba|
|im humble and realistic.....worried about my defense HAVING to make a stop in the playoffs....it's a modest 13-2 and im in my place|
|I'm doing better in fantasy and I sorta keep picking who I want to win this season oops|
|I won my fantasy league even though my top 3 draft picks were busts and I had I think 2 plays on my team from my draft hell fuckin yeah I'm the waiver wire king|
|I won too I think and I'm already plotting who I want to draft for for next season |
|david johnson 1|
le'veon bell 2
|Right now I have David Johnson, Bell, and AP in the sput league. Too bad it's over|
|and you still didn't win the league lol|
|The rest of my team was not championship worthy outside of Bell and Johnson and wasn't anywhere near as good as Pencil's team as a whole.|
Still beat your ass though so
|yet i beat you the first time and my team has to be one of the worst fantasy teams ever lol|
|Jaaaaags finally playing a whole game. picked a good one to attend this year, that was a lot of fun.|
|wait another jags fan on sput? wtf lmao|
|Surprised to see a Jags fan in general|
They're an endangered species
|You beat me the first time because of the botched Kirk Cousins fumble that should have been given to Matt Jones and Bruce Ariens not wanting to review a clear game winning David Johnson TD|
