2020 NFL Week 16 Predictions



Tennessee heads to Green Bay in a huge game with playoff implications. Green Bay can secure home field in the NFC with a win.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: December 24, 2020.



Minnesota Vikings 6-8-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 10-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Heading into week 15 I now have 156 games correct on the year and have a three game lead over first place. Matt Bowen of ESPN now has second place with 153 games correct on the year. Oren Shiri of Draft Utopia and Mina Kimes of ESPN both now have 152 games correct on the year. David Reid of ESPN has 151 games on the year Jason Bantle of Draft Utopia has 150 games on the year. These are the only six panelists in the country with 150 or more games correct.


I went 11-5 and had a bounce back week. I'm now 156-68 on the year with a 69.6 pickem percentage on the year which is best in the country edging out `Bowen's 68.3 pickem percentage. Oren went 11-5 in week 15 making him 152-72 on the year. Jason Bantle went 11-5 in week 15 and is 150-74 on the year. Jesse Lucas went 9-7 and is 142-82 on the year. Tanya Holmes went 11-5 in week 15 making her 136-88 on the year.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: This is a win or go home game for Minnesota. Minnesota defeated New Orleans in the wild card round as the six seed. If Kirk Cousins can win the turnover battle against Drew Brees while Dalvin Cook controls the clock, then Minnesota has a chance to play spoiler in New Orleans again. The cornerback tandem of Mike Hughes, Jeff Gladney, and Cameron Dantzler does not have to worry about Michael Thomas.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara looked pretty good in Brees return at quarterback against Kansas City. If left tackle Terron Armstead and right tackle Ryan Ramcyzk can neutralize Danielle Hunter then New Orleans should be able to do enough to win this game. Kamara does not have to worry about Anthony Barr or Eric Kendricks which is why I think New Orleans has a huge game even if Michael Thomas is out again. Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins can limit what Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson do at wide receiver.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $280 dollars, the maximum bet is $360 dollars with the average gambler betting around $320 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 60% of the betting action is on New Orleans at -7. Take New Orleans to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Saints 31 Vikings 23

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 9-5-0
Versus
Detroit Lions 5-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tony Mario updated his NFL Power Rankings last week. NFL Power Rankings.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay is heading to Detroit. This game has much greater implications for Tampa Bay than it does for Detroit. Tom Brady has Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as targets to throw to along with Antonio Brown in the slot. Rob Gronkowski plays tight end and Jeffrey Okudah is out.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Kenny Golladay did not practice on Tuesday. Three offensive linemen also did not practice due to injuries. Look for Tampa Bay to step up.


Prediction: Tampa Bay enters as a 9.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $340 dollars, the maximum bet is $440 dollars with the average gambler betting around $390 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54. Right now 57% of the betting action is on Tampa Bay at -9.5. Take Tampa Bay to win and cover with the over.

San Francisco 49ers 5-9-0
Versus
Arizona Cardinals 8-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 226,350 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized.




Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: San Francisco has C.J. Beathard and Josh Rosen as their top two quarterbacks thanks to the Nick Mullens injury. Richard Sherman may be able to limit what DeAndre Hopkins does. The rest of San Francisco's cornerbacks will be toast against Arizona's receivers.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Kyler Murray has tons of weapons on offense. Guys like DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, Andy Isabella, and tight end Maxx Williams. Left tackle D.J. Humphries can protect Murray's blindside. Kyler won't have Dee Ford and Nick Bosa breathing down his neck like in the first game where Arizona pulled the upset in San Francisco. The cornerback duo of Patrick Peterson and Byron Murphy should keep Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel in check.


Prediction: Arizona enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $190 dollars with the average gambler betting around $150 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Arizona at -5. Take Arizona to win and cover with the over.

Miami Dolphins 9-5-0
Versus
Las Vegas Raiders 7-7-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia now has an E-Commerce Store on Teespring. Click on the word Teespring to be redirected to our shop to buy Draft Utopia merchandise.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: If Marcus Mariota gets the start over Derek Carr then I'm picking the Dolphins to win. Tua Tagovailoa saw how to pick apart this defense courtesy of Justin Herbert who was drafted one pick behind him. Miami has Austin Jackson at left tackle with Robert Hunt complimenting Jackson at right tackle. Miami also has Ereck Flowers at left guard with Ted Karras at center and rookie Solomon Kindley at right guard. This is a strong offensive line which may not have to worry about Clellin Ferrell since Ferrell missed the Thursday Night game against the Chargers. This defense is talented enough to limit both Marcus Mariota or Derek Carr.


Miami has Xavien Howard and Byron Jones, at cornerback. These two cornerbacks can limit what Henry Ruggs III and Hunter Renfrow can do. If linebackers Shaq Lawson at 3-4 right outside linebacker, Jerome Baker at 3-4 middle linebacker, Elandon Roberts at 3-4 middle linebacker, and Kyle Van Noy at 3-4 left outside linebacker are all at full health, then Miami's front 7 will push the Las Vegas Raiders offensive line to the limit in what is probably the most interesting chess matchups in the trenches.


Why the Las Vegas Raiders Will Win: If Derek Carr ends up playing this game then I may end up picking the Las Vegas Raiders because Josh Jacobs is at full health along with everyone on the offensive line outside of left guard Ritchie Incognito. Left tackle Kolton Miller, center Rodney Hudson, right guard Gabe Jackson, and right tackle Trent Brown may be able to limit what some of the pass rushers on Miami can do. Miami's biggest weakness on their defense is probably at safety so maybe try getting tight end Darren Waller involved on offense. Also this is a win or go home game for the Las Vegas Raiders meaning they will be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to Miami.


Miami managed to beat New England with Mike Gesicki injured. When Miami's offense was at full health two weeks ago, Tua Tagovailoa had one of his best games of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs. Also the Raiders pass rush will be more lethal if Clelin Ferrell is cleared to play this week after missing the Thursday Night game. Las Vegas just needs their cornerbacks to play well enough to DeVante Parker while the safeties focus on Mike Gesicki. Linebackers like Raekwon McMillan and Nick Kwiatkoski need to be glued in on Salvon Ahmed after shutting down Austin Ekeler last week.


Prediction: Miami enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 61% of the betting action is on Miami at -2.5. Take Miami to win and cover with the under.

Indianapolis Colts 10-4-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 11-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted a film cut of Nevada quarterback Carson Strong VS New Mexico. Find out why Carson Strong is a steal compared to someone like Kyle Trask or Mac Jones.




Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Philip Rivers is facing a Pittsburgh defense that got embarssed on Monday Night Football. That's why this game could honestly go either way. Philip Rivers has a good offensive line with Anthony Castonzo at left tackle, Quinton Nelson at left guard, Ryan Kelly at center, Mark Glowinski at right guard, and Braden Smith at right tackle. Indianapolis is one of a few NFL teams that has an offensive line that can bully Pittsburgh's pass rushers now that Bud Dupree isn't complimenting T.J. Watt. Pittsburgh is extremely depleted at 3-4 middle linebacker with their injuries turning to third string 3-4 middle linebackers. This is one reason why Jonathan Taylor just may go off in this game. Indianapolis has the cornerbacks to limit what Pittsburgh's receivers do on offense.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Ben Roethlisberger has an offensive line that features Alejandro Villanueva at left tackle, Matt Feiler at left guard, Maurkice Pouncey at center, David DeCastro at right guard, and Chukwuma Okorafor at right tackle. T.J. Watt can get pressure on Philip Rivers. Joe Haden should be able to blanket T.Y. Hilton.


Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $115 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5. Right now 62% of the betting action is on Indianapolis at -1.5. I like Pittsburgh to win and to cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out D.J. Chuck. Aka Tracy Porter from the Draft Utopia podcast. He does his own radio show on Spreaker that's worth a listen.


Listen to "Dj Chuck" on Spreaker.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta heads to Kansas City. They are not the same team offensively without Julio Jones. Matt Ryan has Jake Matthews to protect his blindside at left tackle.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City can secure home field in the AFC with a win. Only one team gets a first round bye this year and if Kansas City gets that first round bye home field goes through the defending Super Bowl Champions.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 10.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $430 dollars, the maximum bet is $590 dollars with the average gambler betting around $510 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54. Right now 53% of the betting action is on Kansas City at -10.5. Take Kansas City to win and cover with the over.

Chicago Bears 7-7-0
Versus
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-13-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago has one of the leagues best defenses. Chicago is playing for a playoff berth and Mitchell Trubisky has done a much better job avoiding turnovers the last two weeks.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Gardner Minshew played well enough to avoid interceptions against Baltimore. I think there's a slim chance he manages to outplay Mitchell Trubisky.


Prediction: Chicago enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $350 dollars with the average gambler betting around $300 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 67% of the betting action is on Chicago at -7.5. I like Chicago to win and Jacksoniville to cover with the under.

  6. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Notre Dame is playing in the ACC Temporarily. Ian Book can learn a lot by facing good defenses in the ACC.



  7. Previous Rank 2nd




Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati managed to beat Pittsburgh with a third string quarterback, third string left tackle, and a backup running back. That Monday Night win without Burrow was Cincinnati's Super Bowl. If Bernard can exploit this horrendous defense then Cincinnati has a chance. If William Jackson III, Darius Phillips, and Mackensie Alexander cover effectively that will limit what Deshaun Watson can do.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson should have no problem picking apart Cincinnati even with a roster extremely depleted at wide receiver. You also have Laremy Tunsil at left tackle, Max Scharping at left guard, Nick Martin at center, Zach Fulton at right guard, and Tytus Howard at right tackle. Carl Lawson and Sam Hubbard gave the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line fits on Monday Night Football, but these guys should be able to give Deshaun Watson a clean pocket.


Prediction: Houston enters as a 9 point favorite. The minimum bet is $300 dollars, the maximum bet is $400 dollars with the average gambler betting around $350 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 93% of the betting action is on Houston at -9. Take Houston to win and cover with the under.

Why the New York Giants Will Win: New York struggled against Cleveland with Colt McCoy. They won't fare any better against a Baltimore team that has Marcus Peters, Marlon Humphrey, and Jimmy Smith at cornerback.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Baltimore's offense may not be at 100 percent. Lamar Jackson should have no problem with the New York Giants though.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 11 point favorite. The minimum bet is $460 dollars, the maximum bet is $600 dollars with the average gambler betting around $520 dollars on this game.

Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Nick Chubb should be able to exploit this suspect New York Jets defense.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold wants to show people why he should have been drafted ahead of Baker Mayfield. New York knows they will probably not land Trevor Lawrence. Rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims and rookie cornerback Bryce Hall look like good building blocks for the future.


Prediction: Cleveland enters as a 9.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $460 dollars, the maximum bet is $600 dollars with the average gambler betting around $520 dollars on this game.

Carolina Panthers 4-10-0
Versus
Washington Football Team 6-8-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast relaunched Draft Evolution. Check them out.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Teddy Bridgewater should get the start on Sunday. Christian McCaffrey will be out again. D.J. Moore, Roby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel all need to step up if Carolina wants to pull the upset. If left tackle Russell Okung and right tackle Taylor Moton play then Carolina can win. The pass rushing tandem of Brian Burns and Yetur Gross-Matos may be enough to limit Washington's quarterback.


Why the Washington Football Team Will Win: Washington can clinch the division if Ron Rivera defeats his former employer in Carolina. The uncertainty at quarterback has me leaning with Carolina as my upset for week 16.


Prediction: Washington enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Washington at -2.5. I like Carolina to win and to cover with the under.

Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: I'm torn on this game. Denver may end up covering the spread.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Justin Herbert dominated on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders. He faces a weaker cornerback duo on the Denver Broncos. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams should go off in this game.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game.

Philadelphia Eagles 4-9-1
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 5-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys finally parted ways with fictional GM Bill Lumberg who went 1-2 in his career as GM in the playoffs. Hank Hill from King of the Hill and assistant GM and Director Of College Scouting Dale Gribble are 4-9 since taking over for Lumberg.




Here is this weeks hot take from Hank Hill.

Alright Cowboys huddle up! If you want to win the NFC East you have to kick Eagles ass!





Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Jalen Hurts has been phenomenal in his first two starts considering how little he has to work with having an injured offensive line. Jalen Hurts can win out and help the Philadelphia Eagles capture this division at 6-9-1 if Washington loses to Carolina.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Tony Pollard did well last week. Ezekiel Elliott should be back for Dallas this week though.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game.

Los Angeles Rams 9-5-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 10-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick



Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Rams VS Seahawks game.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Los Angeles heads to Seattle. This is a huge NFC West game for both teams. The Los Angeles Rams dominated Seattle last time, but I have to think the Seahawks will be more prepared this time around. Seattle ranks thirty second, dead last among NFL teams in pass defense. Los Angeles will make Seattle earn this win.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Russell Wilson has weapons like Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. Basically both Jalen Ramsey and Troy Hill need to be on their A game once again in order to stop this passing attack. Leonard Floyd had 3 sacks in the previous meeting and I expect a much better performance this time around.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 53% of the betting action is on Los Angeles at +1.5 Take Seattle to win and cover with the over.

Tennessee Titans 10-4-0
Versus
Green Bay Packers 11-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. The Chosen Ones 12-3

    Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV two years ago and lost to Mitch. He made it to Bantle Bowl V where he lost to Mitch again before defeating him in this years season opener. Jason defeated my team in week 2 and H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes, who had the leagues best record a year ago. Jason defeated all three playoff teams from last year in the first three weeks and managed to get off to an 8-2 start. Jason swept my team which was injured to improve to 9-2 on the year. Jason improved to 10-2 before losing to Team Mouserat. Jason Bantle's team, the Chosen One's is 11-3 and officially has the 2 seed secured. Last year, Jason beat Heath as the 4 seed. Jason swept me in the regular season and he wants to win his second Bantle Bowl after losing Bantle Bowl IV and V to Mitch the last two years. Jason's Bantle Bowl record is 1-3 dating back to 2015 so a win improves Jason to 2-3 and a loss drops him to 1-4 All Time in Bantle Bowls.






  2. Gangster Squad 9-6

    This team started 1-4 and won five in a row to get to 6-4 before losing to Jason again and Mitch in an upset. Gangster Squad won two in a row to end the year. I run this Fantasy Team and this team is currently favored to beat Kerryon My Wayward Son, the top seed in this years BFFL Playoffs. The 4 seed is 3-2 in the five Bantle Bowls when playing the 1 seed. Another fun fact is every team that knocked me out of the playoffs in the four years I went to the BFFL Playoffs went on to win Bantle Bowl Jimmy with Bantle Bowl 1, Jason with Bantle Bowl II, and Mitch with both Bantle Bowl IV along with Bantle Bowl V. I finally won my first playoff game by defeating Riley. I'm playing Jason for the Championship.



  3. Previous Rank 4th




  4. Kerryon My Wayward Son 13-2

    Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle two years ago. This team started 1-0 last year too and was third behind H.B. Vinegar's Strokes and myself a year ago. This time they had 194.76 points thanks to having Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in a two quarterback league. Wilson and Rodgers were the top fantasy performers at quarterback in week 1. They beat Millenial Menace in week 2. They defeated my team in week 3 despite entering the week as underdogs. They defeated H.B. Vinegar's Strokes in week 4 and won two games that they were projected to lose. Kerryon My Wayward Son went 13-1 and lost to the 4 seed which was my team. The 4 seed is now 4-2 All Time when facing the 1 seed in the BFFL Playoffs since my team made the playoffs.



  5. Previous Rank 1st




  6. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 8-7

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 204.24 points putting up a clinic against the Avengers. Not even the Justice League could help Avengers deal with this team. Heath used a keeper on Alvin Kamara his signature player from last season before drafting DaVante Adams in the second round who had a mind boggling 41.6 fantasy points in week 1 before missing week 3 with an injury. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes is now second in the league in scoring after getting swept by my team last week. Heath now has two consecutive playoff loses to Jason, and a part of me wonders what would have happened if it was Mark facing Jason with me facing Riley, but despite this Heath did get more head to head points than me during the regular season and Jason called him the toughest opponent.



  7. Previous Rank 3rd




  8. Team Mouserat 8-6

    Mark got the 4 seed two years ago. Mark went 8-6 on the year and was points away from knocking me out of the four seed. Mark has Cam Akers and Justin Jefferson two rookies he can use keepers on next season.






  9. Car RamRod 7-7

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 7-7. Kerm is doing better than the Dallas Cowboys who happen to be his favorite NFL team. Car RamRod handed Kerryon My Wayward Son their first loss of the year in week 8. Andrew had his best fantasy season in years so he should be proud of going 8-6. Kerm can use keepers on both Ezekiel Elliott and Josh Jacobs so this team should be back in the running next season.






  10. Millenial Menace 6-8

    Barenaked Ladies needs to sue the owner of Millenial Menace for copyright infrindgement. Still this logo is less offensive than the Washington Redskins logo. Millenial Menace is ranked seventh in the league despite using copyright infrindgement on one of the best bands from the 90's with Barenaked Nadies who had hit songs like One Week and It's All Been Done from their Stunt album in 1998. This team could end up using keepers on quarterbacks Deshaun Watson in the second round and wide receiver Christian Kirk in the seventeenth round.






  11. Avengers 3-11

    Avengers made Bantle Bowl III. They also draft well in 2020, but cut guys like Drew Lock, Justin Tucker, and Zach Ertz. Avengers can use a first round keeper on Patrick Mahomes, but with running back options like Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Dalvin Cook, I doubt they use a keeper on Mahomes in the first round. I'm guessing Avengers will either use a second round keeper on Chris Godwin or a fourth round keeper on Keenan Allen with their fourteenth round keeper on quarterback Justin Herbert.





  12. Brees Nutz 3-11

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to three peat as Bantle Bowl Champion winning Bantle Bowl III, IV, and V. This 3-11 team is probably going to use a ninth round keeper on Jarvis Landry and a tenth round keeper on Baker Mayfield. They could also use a second round keeper on Julio Jones, a fourth round keeper on Todd Gurley if he re-signs with the Falcons, or a seventh round keeper on Tyler Boyd. Mitch has until the Summer to decide with a lot of possibilities to explore.





  13. Taco Corp 3-11

    Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. Taco Corp had another bad draft, and I think their season is over. They are now tenth in the league standings. Taco Corp will probably use a second round keeper on Nick Chubb. The only other player worthy of a keeper on this god awful roster is James Conner who may be worthy of a sixth round pick.






Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee has an explosive offense. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry continue to play at an elite level even with Taylor Lewan injured. Wide receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis can present a matchup that may exploit Green Bay's defense.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers at quarterback along with Aaron Jones at running back. DaVante Adams is the wide receiver for Green Bay. Green Bay has the healthier offensive line and cornerback Jaire Alexander should be able to blanket one of the Tennessee receivers that he happens to cover.


Prediction: Green Bay enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $210 dollars with the average gambler betting around $160 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 56. Right now 59% of the betting action is on Tennessee at +3.5. Take Green Bay to win and cover with the over.

Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets heading into week 16.



C'mon man. This isn't happening unless we get the right quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft.




Bitcoin, dogecoin, doggy style coin. Who gives a fuck!




This week Philip Rivers gets to clap them cheeks. The current starting quarterback on the Colts is the proud father of nine. Now he gets eleven more cheeks to clap in Pittsburgh.




To be fair, JuJu was classy enough to take a photo with a Patriots fan despite flipping him off. That's one reason why I can live with JuJu's TikTok shenanigans. Also Coach Tomlin told him to stop and he did.




If Jamarcus Russell is Captain Skittles then Dwayne Haskins is Captain Save A Ho. You were a first round pick man, you cannot be doing this to yourself.



Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo has the AFC East locked up. A win and a Steeler loss to Indianapolis gives Buffalo the 2 seed allowing them to rest their starters in week 17. With Stephon Gilmore on injured reserve, I expect Stefon Diggs to go off in this game.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: New England may keep this game close at home. Buffalo will still find a way to win though.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $310 dollars with the average gambler betting around $280 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46. Right now 63% of the betting action is on Buffalo at -7. Take Buffalo to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Bills 28 Patriots 20
