Heller’s Week 16 Picks


After a week where I went 6-10 on my picks, I should be eliminated from playoff contention. However, thankfully I’m not an NFL team, and I can move on in Week 16.

Here are my picks.

Texans @ Buccaneers

Winston gets the win at home, but in the fashion that we’ve grown accustomed to over the years. He’ll throw an interception or two, but will tally four touchdowns

Score: Buccaneers 34, Texans 24


Bills @ Patriots

I picked the Bills when these two teams matched up in Buffalo early in the season. However, I got it wrong. That being said, I’ll pick them again. Bills pull off the upset.

Score: Bills 24, Patriots 20

Rams @ 49ers


The only way I’d pick against the Niners would be if they played a team with a bird logo on their helmet. They’re not, and they’re going to win big.

Score: 49ers 41, Rams 13

Bengals @ Dolphins

Ryan Fitzpatrick, in my opinion, is simply a better quarterback than Andy Dalton. Although it’ll be a close game throughout, the Dolphins will eke out the victory. The Bengals win in their own right by all but locking up the No. 1 pick in the draft.


Score: Dolphins 24, Bengals 17

Steelers @ Jets

The Steelers will keep their playoff chances alive for another week. The Jets meanwhile will be one game away from hitting their local golf course or bowling alley.

Score: Steelers 24, Jets 20

Giants @ Redskins

Dwayne Haskins will claim another victory at home. Hopefully this time he makes the selfies wait until the game concludes.

Score: Redskins 23, Giants 14

Panthers @ Colts

While both teams are just playing out their schedules at this point, Christian McCaffrey still plays for the Panthers. Expect him to be the difference in this one.

Score: Panthers 24, Colts 17

Ravens @ Browns

Redemption game for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. The Browns the first matchup in convincing fashion. I see this going the other way this time, and it’ll be a blowout from the opening kickoff. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ravens finished with 60 points.

Score: Ravens 41, Browns 17

Jaguars @ Falcons

I can’t pick against the team that just beat the Niners. Gardner Minshew will play well, vying for the starting job next season, but Matt Ryan and the Falcons have been rolling the second half of the season.

Score: Falcons 27, Jaguars 17

Sants @ Titans

Drew Brees already got his recond. While they are still jockeying for the top seed in the NFC, the Titans need this game in the worst way to get into the playoffs. The Titans pull off the upset at home.

Score: Titans 31, Saints 27

Raiders @ Chargers

Neither team has much to play for except for pride. I’m rolling with the Chargers at home.

Score: Chargers 24, Raiders 21

Lions @ Broncos

Drew Lock will bounce back after getting hit by the metaphorical avalanche that is the Kansas City Chiefs.

Score: Broncos 27, Lions 14

Cardinals @ Seahawks

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks win big. The only question is how big?

Score: Seahawks 41, Cardinals 14

Cowboys @ Eagles

Before Week 15, it seemed like neither team wanted to win the NFC East. After both teams were victorious, this game could decide who wins the division. A blown call will lead to overtime, and the Cowboys will miss the game-winning field goal as time expires.

Score: Cowboys 20, Eagles 20

Chiefs @ Bears

While not the typical Mahomes-led Chiefs game, they’ll still manage to pull it out in the end.

Score: Chiefs 24, Bears 17

Packers @ Vikings

If this thing plays out a certain way –– although against my previous picks –– on Sunday, the Packers could be in a position to take over the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Minnesota is vying for the final spot, but Aaron Rodgers will pull out the victory on the road.

Score: Packers 34, Vikings 31
