TransGriot 2014 NFL Picks Week 16

Aww yeah, I had a fantastic Week 15 in which I not only won the week, but did so with a 14-2 record. 

But my counterparts went 13-3 and 12-4.   While I solidified my hold on second place, I only gained one game on Mike despite that stellar week with two weeks to go. 

There's two weeks left in the NFL regular season, and the playoff picture that was fuzzy last week is in much sharper focus after several teams clinched playoff spots last Sunday.

Meanwhile the Texans still have a shot, but their odds got longer after they lost Ryan Fitzpatrick to a season ending injury and Tom Savage to a hyperextended knee in the loss to Indianapolis that extended their 0-for Indy streak to 13 games.  

Because they lost two QB, that opened the door for Case Keenum to come back to H-town off the Rams practice squad, and he's already working hard trying to get the starting nod for the upcoming home game against the Ravens.    Here's hoping he gets that first NFL win and gets to stick around a lot longer this time.

Looks like Mike is definitely going to win this 2014 NFL prognostication title, just a matter of the final margin.

Week 15 Results

TransGriot    14-2
Eli                 12-4
Mike             13-3

2014 NFL Season Record

TransGriot     147-76-1
Eli                  139-84-1
Mike              157-66-1

Speaking of games, let's get to them.   Every one of them is important in determining whether a team will get a playoff spot or 2015 NFL draft positioning,   We also have two Saturday NFL contests in addition to the Thursday one in which the Tennessee Titans Traitors will be battling the Jaguars for draft positioning.

My picks are in underlined bold print.
