I'm relieved the Thursday night games are done since I think I only got like 4 Thursday games right all season.

Saturday
Colts at Ravens-Ravens still have a really good shot of making the playoffs while the Colts are hoping for some Luck next season.

Vikings at Packers-I hate picking against the Pack in their last home game of the season, but it's kind of a no-brainer since Rodgers is out, the Pack are out of playoff contention, and the Vikes are rolling right now. Minnesota has a good chance of getting home-field advantage throughout the playoffs en route to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. It could turn into a real special season for them.

Sunday
Rams at Titans-Rams are legit. I regret not picking them last week. Yes, I remember the Titans are still in playoff contention, but I saw my dumpster-fire 49ers beat them last week. And I saw the Cardinals beat them the week before that. It seems like they're in a slump, and Mariota is clearly not 100%. The bright side is they have 2 home games remaining. Maybe they can rally and do it for their fans, but I just don't think they have the firepower to hang with Goff, Gurley, and company.

Bills at Patriots-Patriots won't be satisfied until they have the number 1 seed locked up. Besides they own the Bills who are destined for another 9-7 season. 9-7 could get them in the playoffs this year though.

Browns at Bears-History repeats itself. Browns won last year in Week 16 on December 24th. This game will also be on December 24th. This is the only day of the year they win football games, and I predict the Browns will give their poor fans another Christmas present by defeating Da Bad News Bears. Come on, Browns! You can do it.

Falcons at Saints-I have no clue why I'm going with Atlanta here. Saints are playing better football right now. It's just a gut feeling. I can't imagine the reigning NFC champs not making the playoffs.

Lions at Bengals-Matt Stafford and Jim Bob Cooter go crazy as they fight for their playoff lives in Marvin Lewis's final home game. Bengals seem to be phoning it in now.

Buccaneers at Panthers -Cam will definitely smoke a Winston! The question is will they win by a score of 31-24 like they have the last two weeks.

Dolphins at Chiefs-I still believe that the Chiefs will be the playoff representative from the AFC West as they put a dagger in Miami's playoff hopes.

Broncos at Redskins-Kirk Cousins is still playing for a few more zeros on next season's contract. Broncos have a chance here if Osweiler plays as well as he did against the Colts.

Chargers at Jets-Chargers still have a chance to make the playoffs, and I haven't picked the Jets for weeks now.

Jaguars at 49ers-I predicted my Niners would go 4-12 this season. San Fran is at 4 wins right now. Now that we got Jimmy G. I think we can 4 wins in a row and beat a very good Jags team. Yes, this may be a throwaway pick, but I'll be the only getting it right if it happens.

Seahawks at Cowboys-This is the do or die game of the week. The loser is eliminated from playoff contention. Seahawks have been playing terrible lately and letting me down. I don't think they're going to win this with Zeke coming back, BUT I can't pick the Cowboys and hope that Wilson and company show up this week. I would love to see Dallas get eliminated on their home field.

Giants at Cardinals-I'll take the cardiac Cards at home since the Giants are a dumpster fire.
Monday (Merry Christmas)

Steelers at Texans-Steelers play to their level of competition, so this will be closer than it should be, but the killer B's will secure home-field advantage. Hopefully they'll get a rematch against the Patriots in the playoffs and beat them.

Raiders at Eagles-I still think the Eagles will fly with Foles and get the number 1 seed in the NFC. It could be a tough road ahead in the playoffs though.

And the thing is, Thursday night games don't work well because it never allows each team to recover from injuries. If the NFL insists on keeping them, then they need to do two things:
1. Give each participant a full week off, that way so teams can recover from injuries.
2. Each team plays in it once.

The opening kickoff game and Detroit/Dallas Thanksgiving games are perfectly fine, but other games, they need to go.

As for the London Games/Mexico City games, well, I don't have much to say on them. It's dumb and it would be an absolute disaster if London or Mexico City gets an NFL franchise, especially London.

Plus, the other thing I get bothered is that they may expand the playoffs in the near future. The ONLY way that works is getting more expansion franchises which is NOT going to happen. Adding more teams in the playoffs will create terrible matchups which shows me why Roger Goodell is the greediest commissioner in American sports. The NFL have the best playoff system followed by MLB. NBA postseason, IMO, is way too long which is why the college basketball tournaments are far better than NBA postseason IMO anyways.
