Bleacher Report's Expert Consensus Week 16 NFL Picks

Last week was billed as "Statement Week" in the NFL, but the only statement made was the same one being proclaimed in Weeks 1-14: The NFL is a crazy place.

No one expected the San Francisco 49ers to jump out to such a convincing lead against the New England Patriots. Just as unlikely? The Patriots' surge to make it a close game at the end. What should've been a great game turned into a blowout and then back into an amazing game.

Lots of people are hoping that was our Super Bowl preview.

No one expected the New York Giants to get shut out against the Atlanta Falcons. No one expected the Carolina Panthers to fly across the country and steal the San Diego Chargers' lunch money. No one expected the Seattle Seahawks to do their best Oregon Ducks impersonation (complete with alternate uniforms) and hang a 50-spot on the Bills.

Week 16 should be even crazier as teams ramp up for the playoffs and wind down for a long offseason of answering critics.
