My hate for the San Diego Chargers softens a bit while I have a conflict of conscience with the Green Bay Packers in an emotional NFL Week 16 picks against the spread.
Who am I kidding? All of my picks have way too much bearing on my emotional well-being.
But could you find two teams that better exemplify the 2013 season?
The Chargers, who were getting more than 10 points on the road, came out and semi-crushed the Denver Broncos, who are in the thick of the race for the No. 1 seed.
The Packers, for the second straight week, dug themselves a double-digit hole and somehow won both games without Aaron Rodgers.
Little makes sense this season. It's almost impossible to find any established themes other than to expect the unexpected.
Well, except for the Dallas Cowboys.
