NFL Week 16 Game Previews, Odds, Picks & Predictions

The NFL Show Week 16

It’s Christmas week everybody! So how about we talk a little football while you’re getting your last-minute shopping done? Week 16 of the NFL season is right around the corner, and with it comes the thrills of matchups all around the league involving teams with clear playoff pretensions.

Over on Thursday Night Football, the Jets and Jaguars, two of the worst teams from last season will square up at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands with both squads fighting for a chance to sneak into the postseason this year. If that doesn’t tell you how crazy the end of the 2022 NFL season is going to be, then sit tight and don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Christmas Eve day will host the vast majority of games this week, leaving only three for Christmas day and one for Monday night. Starting on Saturday, the Lions, who know that winning out is their only way into the playoffs will be visiting Carolina to play the Panthers.

Meanwhile, in Baltimore the Ravens, minus Lamar Jackson will play host to the Falcons, all while the Chiefs welcome the Seahawks, the Browns and Saints face off in Cleveland, Tennessee will host the Texans, and the Patriots and Bengals go to battle at Foxborough.

In one of the more attractive games of the week, the Vikings and Giants will square off in Minnesota while the Bills travel to Chicago to square off against the Bears at Soldier Field. Moving on to the afternoon, Brock Purdy and the Niners will play host to the Commanders, while over in Dallas, the Eagles, without Jalen Hurts will have their toughest outing of the season as they face off against the Cowboys. Closing out the Christmas Eve lineup of games, the Steelers and Raiders will duke it out in Pittsburgh.

It’s Christmas Day and with it comes presents, time spent with family and friends, and yes, you know it, FOOTBALL! Over in Miami Tua and the Dolphins will be playing host to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in a game that could close out the season on Green Bay. In the afternoon, Russell Wilson and the Broncos will visit LA to play the Rams, in case you were looking for a reason to take a nap.

Lastly on Sunday Night and Monday Night Football, the Cardinals and Buccaneers will square off in Arizona, while the following day, closing out week 16, the Colts will welcome Justin Herbert and the Chargers, who are all about winning their remaining games and getting set for the playoffs.
