By The Numbers: Week 16, 2017

Well, the season is over for me. I’ll go ahead and make my picks going into this week and I’ll do it once more for next, but at this point it’s game over. The Packers have been eliminated from the Playoffs as of Monday evening. We still had a very slim margin had some of the games gone a different way, but we all knew that if we didn’t beat the Panthers we weren’t going to make it. Rodgers had a terrible day, throwing 3 picks. We still had the opportunity to win though, as a bullshit reversed call on a Touchdown essentially gave them the win, but it is what it is. 8 years in a row we went to the playoffs, and now it’s just the Patriots who have that kind of a streak. Oh, to play in the AFC where the teams are mostly garbage. Rodgers was placed back on IR and Hundley will get to finish off the season. Rebuild and do it better next year, is all I can think right now. Really wish one of those times in the last few years that we made it to the NFC Championship that we would have succeeded, Rodgers needs ring #2 and the organization needs ring #5 and we need it before he gets too old. Two broken collar bones in like four years is not conducive to a much longer career. Here’s how I did with my picks for last week:

Broncos 24, Colts 14 – Correct
Bears 21, Lions 17
Chargers 28, Chiefs 20
Ravens 30, Browns 20 – Correct
Cardinals 21, Redskins 13
Eagles 27, Giants 10 – Correct
Bills 24, Dolphins 20 – Correct
Packers 30, Panthers 21
Jags 31, Texans 13 – Correct
Vikings 30, Bengals 19 – Correct
Saints 35, Jets 7 – Correct
Rams 27, Seahawks 24 – Correct
Steelers 27, Patriots 26
Titans 31, 49ers 20
Cowboys 23, Raiders 17 – Correct
Falcons 27, Buccs 21 – Correct

A mostly correct week, at least better than last. Here are my picks for week 16:

Ravens 27, Colts 13
Packers 20, Vikings 17
Lions 24, Bengals 10
Chiefs 30, Dolphins 24
Patriots 35, Bills 24
Bears 27, Browns 10
Panthers 28, Buccs 14
Saints 30, Falcons 21
Redskins 21, Broncos 14
Rams 30, Titans 20
Chargers 21, Jets 10
Jaguars 45, 49ers 14
Cowboys 21, Seahawks 20
Cardinals 23, Giants 19
Steelers 34, Texans 16
Eagles 38, Raiders 21
