PFT’s Week 16 picks

Dallas Cowboys v Philadelpia Eagles Getty Images

Still nine games back with 43 to go, I need a minor miracle to catch Rosenthal.  But I’m not going to start pulling out Hail Mary-type maneuvers by doing something like Picking the Chiefs to beat the Packers.

I mean, that would be kooky.

Rosenthal and I emerged from that crazy, upside-down Week 15 at 9-7 each.  For the year, he’s 151-73.  I’m 142-82.

Texans at Colts

Florio’s take:  Not long ago, it was presumed that the Colts would beat the Texans.  That was before the Colts lost Peyton Manning — and before the Texans found their defense.  The ongoing absence of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips makes this one less of a sure thing for Houston, but the Colts surely won’t be looking to risk losing the Andrew Luck pick.

Florio’s pick:  Texans 28, Colts 13.

Rosenthal’s take: The Texans were reminded last week that their margin for error isn’t huge with T.J. Yates at quarterback. But that won’t be a problem this week. Houston’s defense will want to make amends after getting manhandled against Carolina. Expect 35 rushing attempts by the Texans.

Rosenthal’s pick: Texans 26, Colts 10.

Browns at Ravens

Florio’s take:  The Browns are one of the few inferior teams the Ravens managed to beat on the road.  This time, the Browns come to Baltimore, where the team that used to play in Cleveland has lost once in the last two seasons.  With the division title only two wins away, the Ravens won’t be blowing their chance to play a postseason game at home for the first time in the John Harbaugh/Joe Flacco tenure.

Florio’s pick:  Ravens 31, Browns 17.

Rosenthal’s take: Seneca Wallace looked like a slight upgrade from Colt McCoyPeyton Hillis is slightly healthier and more effective than he was earlier in the season.  So I’ll predict the Browns will make this slightly more interesting than the last time these two teams played.

Rosenthal’s pick: Ravens 27, Browns 17.

Broncos at Bills

Florio’s take:  Tebowmania takes Buffalo, where the Bills have seen a 4-1 start disintegrate, via seven straight losses.  With a trip to New England looming, this one gives the Bills their last, best shot at winning another game.  Though a playoff berth seems inevitable for the Broncos, it’ll have to wait until Week 17.

Florio’s pick:  Bills 24, Broncos 20.

Rosenthal’s take: Timing is everything. If the Bills started the season at 0-7, losing by an average of 18 points per week, Chan Gailey would be on the hot seat. But the Bills started fast before the bottom fell out, so no one has noticed that Buffalo is arguably the worst team in football at the moment.

Rosenthal’s pick: Broncos 23, Bills 16.

Buccaneers at Panthers

Florio’s take:  The Panthers have gotten better on the fly.  The Bucs have fallen apart, with eight straight losses.  Though anything can happen when teams from the same division square off, the Bucs haven’t made much of anything happen this year.  The Panthers won’t need to annex Puerto Rico or any other U.S. territories to win this one on Saturday.

Florio’s pick:  Panthers 34, Buccaneers 23.

Rosenthal’s take: The Bucs also have an argument for the worst team of the second half.  They’ve lost eight straight, with the last three by 21 points per game. Tampa is no longer even the up-and-coming “Youngry” team in the division with the cool franchise quarterback; that’s now Carolina.

Rosenthal’s pick: Panthers 36, Buccaneers 23.

Cardinals at Bengals

Florio’s take:  One of the best games of the weekend will unfold before another way-less-than-capacity crowd in Cincinnati.  The Cardinals have won six of seven, and the Bengals still find themselves in the thick of things in the AFC wild-card chase.  But the Bengals have lost some of their punch in recent weeks, barely beating a pair of bad teams and losing four games to playoff contenders.  The Cardinals may not make it to the postseason, but it won’t be because they failed to handle their business.

Florio’s pick:  Cardinals 20, Bengals 17.

Rosenthal’s take: A legitimate quarterback controversy between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton is a surprising development. Arizona winning six of seven games in insane final possession fashion is even more surprising. The streak of luck ends against a Bengals team that was the surprise of the early season.

Rosenthal’s pick: Bengals 28, Cardinals 24.

Raiders at Chiefs

Florio’s take:  Chiefs players want to win for interim coach Romeo Crennel.  If they’d wanted to win as badly for former head coach Todd Haley, Crennel wouldn’t have the job he currently holds.  Kyle Orton and company keep making an unlikely push to the playoffs, as the Raiders continue to wonder how good they could have been if Darren McFadden hadn’t injured his foot the last time they played the team from Kansas City.

Florio’s pick:  Chiefs 24, Raiders 17.

Rosenthal’s take: Suddenly this game means a great deal. Both teams are trying to stay alive in the AFC West race. Romeo Crennel is trying to win a job. Hue Jackson is trying to justify his trade for Carson Palmer. Unfortunately, I fear that all the drama in the AFC West race will be over after this week.

Rosenthal’s pick: Chiefs 30, Raiders 20.

Dolphins at Patriots

Florio’s take:  Yes, the Dolphins aren’t as bad as they were when they lost seven straight games.  Yes, the Dolphins played the Patriots tough in Week One.  But the Patriots are two home wins away from the No. 1 seed for the second straight year.  Defensive warts and all, the Pats won’t be choking — at least until they host the Jets or the Ravens in January.

Florio’s pick:  Patriots 35, Dolphins 23.

Rosenthal’s take: The Dolphins are 5-2 in their last seven games. The defense that got strafed in Week One by Tom Brady has improved greatly. Karlos Dansby, Kevin Burnett, and Vontae Davis are all playing much better for Miami. This is a dangerous game for the Patriots as they try to lock up the No. 1 seed.

Rosenthal’s pick: Patriots 26, Dolphins 24.

Giants at Jets

Florio’s take:  I’ve said for days that, if there were a way for both teams to lose this one, that’s what would happen.  (Maybe that means a tie is coming.)  The Giants have the better team on paper, but on paper the Giants shouldn’t have lost five of six games.  Recent trends have the Jets pulling things together and getting to the playoffs and the Giants completing a slide out of postseason contention.  Though all reason and common sense points to a Giants win, neither team’s performance this year has meshed with reason and common sense.

Florio’s pick:  Jets 17, Giants 14.

Rosenthal’s take: The Giants don’t have much if they don’t have a pass rush. And they don’t have much of a pass rush right now. At least the Jets have one reliable strength: Their pass defense. That should be enough to stop a Giants team that relies too much on Eli Manning.

Rosenthal’s pick: Jets 22, Giants 17.

Rams at Steelers

Florio’s take:  Against any other team, the question of whether the Steelers would use Ben Roethlisberger or Charlie Batch at quarterback would matter.  But these are the Rams.  The 2-12 Rams.  The hopelessly hapless Rams.  The Steelers would be likely to win this one even with one of the St. Louis backup quarterbacks taking the snaps for the home team.

Florio’s pick:  Steelers 20, Rams 3.

Rosenthal’s take: Charlie Batch is 37 years old. He was once teammates with Barry Sanders. At some point, the Steelers are going to roll him out there, and he just won’t be able to play the position anymore. Batch looked rough in his brief appearance two weeks ago. On the plus side: The Rams look rough every week.

Rosenthal’s pick: Steelers 16, Rams 6.

Jaguars at Titans

Florio’s take:  Though the Titans lost to the winless Colts last week, the Jaguars have been looking even worse in recent weeks, notwithstanding the contributions of Maurice Jones-Drew.  So with Matt Hasselbeck, Jake Locker, or even Vince Young at quarterback, the Titans should be able to take care of business — despite the fact that the Jaguars pulled off the win the last time around.

Florio’s pick:  Titans 27, Jaguars 14.

Rosenthal’s take: Analysts have crushed Blaine Gabbert for his weak pocket presence all year. So interim coach Mel Tucker overcompensated by calling Gabbert “courageous” and “super-tough” this week. The Jaguars might be better off with a coach that recognizes Gabbert’s faults and tries to improve upon them.

Rosenthal’s pick: Titans 27, Jaguars 17.

Vikings at Redskins

Florio’s take:  Last year, the Vikings played their butts off against the Redskins in D.C., hopeful of helping Leslie Frazier lose the “interim” tag.  This year, most Vikings don’t seem to care about Frazier or anyone else.  On a weekly basis, it shows.  It’s likely to show again on Saturday.

Florio’s pick:  Redskins 23, Vikings 10.

Rosenthal’s take: The Vikings feel like a 3-13 team, but their last win is more likely to come next week against the Bears. The Redskins feel exactly like a 6-10 type of team. They will hit their magic number on Sunday. This “analysis” made more sense in my head.

Rosenthal’s pick: Redskins 26, Vikings 17.

Chargers at Lions

Florio’s take:  Norv Turner’s team has launched another impressive late-season run.  But the Lions have rediscovered their explosiveness on offense.  It’s time for Detroit to nail down its first playoff berth in more than a decade — and to do so not by the skin of their teeth but by flexing some Motown muscle.

Florio’s pick:  Lions 35, Chargers 17.

Rosenthal’s take: Both quarterbacks in this game are playing very well.  Matthew Stafford saves his best stuff for the fourth quarter, while Philip Rivers has simply been on fire for three weeks. The Lions are 4-5 since beating the Bears on Monday Night Football. I’m not convinced they can beat good teams. The Chargers finally are a good team.

Rosenthal’s pick: Chargers 33, Lions 30.

Eagles at Cowboys

Florio’s take:  Jerry Jones fears the Eagles.  And for good reason.  Philly has found its groove, perhaps too late.  But not late enough for the Dream Team to complete a sweep of America’s Team.

Florio’s pick:  Eagles 33, Cowboys 27.

Rosenthal’s take: I predicted the Eagles would miss the playoffs at the beginning of the year. Despite a 6-8 record, they are somehow still alive and look like the best team in the division. I’m trying not to fall for it. It’s all part of an elaborate plan for Andy Reid to torture Eagles fans in the most painful way possible.

Rosenthal’s pick: Cowboys 30, Eagles 27.

49ers at Seahawks

Florio’s take:  The Jim Harbaugh-Pete Carroll rivalry is renewed, weeks after we’d all forgotten about it.  But even if the Seahawks can’t get the help they need to make it to the playoffs, they can throw a wrench into the Niners’ plans for an easier path to Indy by killing Harbaugh’s shot at a bye.

Florio’s pick:  Seahawks 23, 49ers 17.

Rosenthal’s take: This is a dangerous game for the 49ers on a short week. Seattle’s defense continues to improve, while Tarvaris Jackson is playing his football of the season. (Without both his starting wideouts.) Both teams play a style designed to keep the game close. That favors the home team.

Rosenthal’s pick: Seahawks 17, 49ers 13.

Bears at Packers

Florio’s take:  Not long ago, this looked like it could be one of the best games of the year.  Now, it’ll mainly be an opportunity for the Packers to get the bad taste out of their mouths that came from losing to the Chiefs.

Florio’s pick:  Packers 35, Bears 13.

Rosenthal’s take: Josh McCown was coaching high school football four weeks ago. On Christmas night, he’ll show that he’s better than Caleb Hanie, and that it doesn’t really make a difference. The Packers have solved bigger injury problems than a few missing tackles.

Rosenthal’s pick: Packers 31, Bears 14.

Falcons at Saints

Florio’s take:  The Falcons beat the Saints in New Orleans last year.  Somehow.  This year, the Saints are unstoppable in the Superdome, thanks to a record-smashing season from Drew Brees.  But the Falcons have the firepower to keep it interesting.  Get your popcorn ready.  And your abacus.

Florio’s pick:  Saints 45, Falcons 38.

Rosenthal’s take: Exactly three points decided the last four games in this series. Atlanta will do enough to remind everyone the Saints’ defense really hasn’t improved much. But the Falcons won’t do enough to hand New Orleans their first home loss of the year.

Rosenthal’s pick: Saints 34, Falcons 31.

  5. sbxxix says: Dec 22, 2011 1:42 PM

    I think for Xmas the NFL should start a new tradition were only teams with red or green jersey play each other. I can think of a few good games already

    Super Bowl I rematch ( not to mention this years upset)
    KC vs GB

    Giants (red jerseys) vs Eagles

    Patriots (red jerseys) vs Jets

    Miami (all green Uniforms) vs AZ (all red uniforms)

    I just love Xmas and if you’re gonna make teams play that day it should be teams with red or green uniforms against each other lol. I’m just sayin it would be fun.

    Merry Xmas to everyone!!!

    very dangerous game for the niners. hawks defense is playing very well the past 6 games. even in week one i thought they played well. but even in their 3 losses this year, niners defense played very good in those games. its the offense that ultimately doesnt do much which results in those defeats. this game can definitely go either way but i feel niners will have a good game plan and will come out with a hard fought victory. very close game. 17-14 niners….and the streaks will continue for the niners (no rushing td for lynch and less than 100 yrds rushing)

  9. jbaxt says: Dec 22, 2011 1:55 PM

    I want the Bronco’s to lose and Chiefs win for a week 17 winner take all in Donkeyland. Orton over Tebow. Donkey fans can finally see what they gave away, a legit QB who can play pretty well on a decent team with good WR’s.

    Like all fads (Wild Cat) Tebow’s time posing as a real NFL QB is limited. Now if he can come back next year, throw for more 2,500 yards then you have something. But completeing less than 50% is nonsense. Even Blaine Gabbert thinks it’s funny.

  10. ticalcaldwell says: Dec 22, 2011 1:55 PM

    But the Bengals have lost some of their punch in recent weeks, barely beating a pair of bad teams and losing four games to playoff contenders.

    ==================================

    like the Cards barely beating an awful Browns team AT HOME……………jus sayin

  11. southpaw2k says: Dec 22, 2011 1:56 PM

    I’m such a Cardinals fan this weekend. If they beat the Bengals tomorrow, it all but seals the Bengals’ fate of making the playoffs. If they’re still clinging to a glimmer of hope come Week 17, they’re going to play their hearts out against the Ravens, which kinda frightens me.

  12. metcalfer says: Dec 22, 2011 1:57 PM

    Jets are #7 in yards allowed this year and have only given up 13 touchdown passes. Also, last week, Vick had 274 yards and 1 throwing touchdown. So, THAT pass defense did not give up 45 points, it gave up 7.

    TJack is playing much better now than he was week 1 @SF. He threw 2 TD passes in that game, right? And didn’t John Skelton throw for 3 TDs in the Niners previous road game?

    A better question might be “How exactly will Frisco score against Seattle?”.

    Not being able to score TDs in the red zone against a team who is very stingy on defense in the red zone is going to sink the Niners. Seattle wins a close one. The power stays on the entire game.

    The stat for losers. The Pats are on pace to give up more YPG than any team in NFL history, and they are 15 points awy from being undefeated.

    How is that AFC East race working out for the Jests?

    No, the Eagles did score 45 points, just not through the air. Didn’t mean to get you worked up. The original point was about the Jets pass defense and that it is definitely the strength of their D this season, and you said that the pass defense gave up 45 points. My point was that the Jets pass defense has been pretty solid this season and that Vick had an OK game in the air, but not great. Plus, most of his yards came from the TE Celek, so their secondary did a pretty good job.

  27. dspohn55 says: Dec 22, 2011 3:28 PM

    Seattle is improved, but none of the teams you mentioned have a better D than SF. And SF beat the Giants and Eagles too.

    There is no question that this will be a tough game for the 49ers, and there is a reasonable chance they lose. But if they bring their A-game, they will win.

    That is the big question.

  29. piazzajordan2 says: Dec 22, 2011 3:33 PM

    All I’m saying is, every team since 1985 at least, has lost their 2nd game in a row after starting 2-0 or better. Not saying they’ll lose, but just remember that…

    richm2256 doesn’t seem to understand how football works. There’s a difference statistically between points scored through the air, on the ground, and off turnovers.

    Nobody’s disputing the score of that game, nor that the Jets D (and the team as a whole) sucked in general, but the pass defense did not give up 45 points. That’s a fact.

  33. howley1 says: Dec 22, 2011 4:24 PM

    Thanks for pIcking the hawks. Everytime you double up on the niners they win. Tavares won’t play well and Aldon smith is gonna tear the rest of his pectoral up.

  35. P_Willy says: Dec 22, 2011 5:05 PM

    Seattle is a good team, and this whole NFC West being the worst applied last year – but what a difference a season makes. Unfortunately for the Rams, the injuries were too much to overcome given their youth.

    By no means is this division the best, but it’s far from the worst – and the record proves it when looking at how our division plays against others – not just within it.

    To have San Fran @ 6-2 against the NFC East + AFC North speaks volumes for credability. The Cardinals peaked a little too late.

    Seattle will present a very tough challenge especially at home. The final score in the season opener is decieving – had it not been for two late speacial teams td’s, we were only nursing a 1 point lead.

    Granted a lot has changed for both teams since, so i expect a close one; the winner being the team with the fewest mistakes.

    Should be a good one, and i hope for no injuries.

  36. jvibottomline says: Dec 22, 2011 5:13 PM

    See Redskins@Seattle Game

    49ers Defense won’t give up 13 points in this game. It will be something like 20-10 San Francisco. Book it and take your ticket.

  37. the1849ers says: Dec 22, 2011 5:19 PM

    T. Jackson with top 2 WRs out will not beat 49er D.

    If Alex Smith plays like he did in last divisional road game, I predict Seattle will get pick 6 to win the game…

    How exactly will Seattle score against Frisco?
    ——————————-

    They scored 17 in week one. Yeah, the final was 33-17, but it was a lot closer than that. It was a 2-point game with 4:30 to go when Ginn broke it open with 2 kick returns for TDs.

    The Seattle offensive line is a lot better than it was week one. The only thing I don’t like is not having Okung for this game. He did very well against Aldon Smith in college.

    Going to be a cold, wet Northwest day on Saturday….good football weather. Should be a good game.

    Hey, NFL, when you make up your opening-week Monday Night doubleheader next year, maybe have this as the “late” matchup? These are two young teams, and are going to be going at each other for a number of years. It’s a rivalry to watch.

    Aren’t the Dolphins’ uniforms “teal” or “aqua” or somesuch? More in the blue family, I think. The all-red Cardinals are going to have to play the Seahawks in their bright green Alternates. Also, it keeps it within the Division. This just gets better and better!

    Seahawks fans: maybe you missed it. Monday night, the Niners laid 20 on the Steelers. Are you guys saying that the Hawks D is better than the Steelers D? And, they held the Steelers to 3 points. Are you guys pretending that the Hawks O is better than the Steelers O?

    Just a reminder. Tell us – who has the assignment of keeping Aldon Smith away from your QB? The Niners O-line just held the Steelers D to no sacks. Do you think your Hawks are better at rushing the passer than the Steelers?

    I know everyone thinks this is going to be close. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Niners break a bunch of hearts on Saturday. The Cards slapped them in the face a couple weeks ago and they came back and just stuck it to the Steelers. I don’t think they let down for this one. There’s too much at stake.
