NFL Week 16 Game Picks


The Musket Fire staff are putting on our prognostication hats, staring into the Musket Fire crystal ball, and predicting the winners each week throughout the NFL season. Staff writer Ryan Hannable and I are making the game picks, so feel free to pick against us in the Comments section. Last week, Ryan and I survived the onslaught of upsets to end the week 10-6. My record on the season is now 152-71 (68%) and Ryan’s record is 123-69 (64%). Ryan and I are starting the week 1-0 for picking the Colts to upset the Texans Thursday night.

Let’s get right to the picks from Ryan and I, including our pick for today’s Patriots-Dolphins game.

Upset Special
  • JP: Jaguars over the Titans. Chris Johnson is questionable, and the Jags have shown they can bring it while the Titans are hot-and-cold. This is going to be a cold week.
  • RH: Chargers over the Lions.  The Chargers have been playing their best football of the year of late and are primed to upset the Lions this week.
Put it in the bank
  • JP & RH: Packers over the Bears. In what was supposed to be a very entertaining and suspenseful game on Christmas night has turned into what should be a blow out and doesn’t mean as much as it could have if the Packers were going for an undefeated season. The Packers should roll. (RH)
