2013 TransGriot NFL Predictions Week 16

Is this NFL regular season over yet?   Like my fave NFL squad, I'm slogging through the worst season I've ever had for NFL prognostication.   Had another sub. 500 week thanks to the Cowboys and Tony Romo having another bout of December Pigskin Throat Constriction Syndrome against the Packers and a few other Week 15 upsets

Don't even get me started about the Texans 12th straight loss that put them in firm control of the number one pick in the 2014 NFL draft next May.   They'll also have to deal with in their final home game at Reliant Stadium a pissed off Denver Broncos team.   They got beat at home by the San Diego Chargers, but are saying thank you Lawdy to the Miami Dolphins for the early Christmas present they received. 

The Dolphins knocked off the Brady Bunch 24-20 in Miami to keep the Broncos sitting m the AFC's number one playoff seed and their own playoff hopes alive. 

Back to my fave NFL squad.  Yeah, I'm still a ride or die Texans chick unlike the bandwagon riders that bounced when the adversity started.    

Matt Schaub is starting this game in place of the injured Case Keenum.  This ought to be fun. 

Hope the roof is closed for this one against the Broncos because you'll probably hear the boo birds all the way to Katy and the Woodlands if another pick six happens. 

As for the prognostication battle?  Eli has a five game lead with two weeks to go.  Can Mike replicate what I did to him last year (I erased a four game lead on him with two weeks to go) and erase it for the win?  Or will Eli hold on for the 2013 regular season NFL prognostication title?

Well, that's a nice segue to the Week 16 picks.  16 games, no Thursday night one tonight or next week, major playoff (and 2014 draft order) implications on the line.   My picks are in underlined bold print.   Mike and Eli's picks are here.
