Observations and Predictions... Week 16 (christmas edition)
Last week I was 10 and 6. Not a bad tally. I think the Titans (at home) behind Chris Johnson beat the surging Chargers. The Titans can go on a run and make some noise in the playoffs. The Chargers are as good as their recent winning streak, but I think their lack of running game will come back to bite them in this game.
The rest of the week should look like this: Falcons over the Bills. Although they're playing only for pride a strong finish bodes well for Atlanta next season. Bengals over the Chiefs. Expect a big day from Cedric Benson. The Raiders (who've looked much better of late) over the Browns (who've looked better of late as well). Packers huge over the Seahawks. Steelers over the Ravens. A late season push by the defending champs is on. Dolphins over the Texans. Pats at home in the cold and rain over the suny Jags. Saints big over Bucs. Giants over Panthers. Niners over the Lions. Cardinals beat the Rams. Colts will have to rely on the ground game, but they'll beat the Jets in a close low scoring game. Eagles over the Broncos in a shoot-out. Cowboys big over Washington. Vikings get back to their winning ways against the Bear.
