The picks are in for Week 16. We disagreed on three games this week. It would have been five, but earlier this afternoon I called the paper and had them change two picks for the Friday edition.
Early in the week I liked the Cardinals and Bengals. I might regret changing those, but Jay Cutler seems to be playing better for the Broncos, and the Cardinals might be without their starting left tackle. More likely, I’ve out-thought myself.
On the other games, logic said the Jaguars and Dolphins would be tough at home, but quarterback issues could hurt both teams. Jacksonville is a team you trust at your own peril. We’ll see if the Jaguars can get their running game going against the Patriots. New England ranks fourth in rushing yards allowed per game.
On the home front, we both picked against the Seahawks, but it’s never an upset if Seattle wins at home, is it? It would be this time.
