SportsTalkFeed’s Weekly NFL Pick Em’: Week XVI

By the SportsTalkFeed NFL Staff

It’s week 16 of the NFL season and plenty of teams are feeling the holiday spirit while quite a few are getting ready for March. Tonight, the New York Giants look to continue their December success as they take on a struggling Philadelphia Eagles team. It’s been five years since the Giants made the playoffs and tonight, they have a chance to clinch a playoff berth. Can Eli Manning and the dominant Giants defense clinch it or will Carson Wentz show off some of his early season rookie magic and lead the Eagles to a win?

Despite no Ryan Tannehill, the Miami Dolphins are in the playoff race led by every backup QB’s idol, Matt Moore. Can the Dolphins end the Buffalo Bills season or will Rex Ryan and company avenge an earlier season defeat? Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will look to build off their recent momentum and put a division rival out of their misery when they host the Minnesota Vikings. Can Sam Bradford keep things together in Minnesota or will the Vikings season be officially over after Saturday?

This Sunday, the NFL has two Christmas day match-ups that just happen to be heated divisional rival games when the Baltimore Ravens travel to Pittsburgh Steelers and when the Denver Broncos travel to Arrowhead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The AFC North is up for grabs as the Ravens will look to sweep the Steelers this season, however, the Steelers have a healthy Ben Roethlisberger now and he could very well be the difference maker but will Joe Flacco work some late season magic for the Ravens? The Broncos and Chiefs are both coming off of frustrating losses, this is a must-win for the Broncos if they’re to lose then their season could very well be over and for the Chiefs, they will need a win here if they want a good chance at still winning the AFC West.
