Week 16 in the NFL is one where a few teams control their own destiny, like the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos, while others like the Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers, New York Giants and Oakland Raiders are all hoping for some help to make the playoffs. This slate of games should provide some clarity in the playoff races for the AFC and NFC by the time the week is over. After going 8-8 in upset week (aka Week 15), I think I've got a better batch of picks for Week 16.
As always, winners are picked straight up, with home teams always listed on the right side. For all the odds on each game be sure to visit the SB Nation NFL Odds page, presented by OddsShark.com.
