Week 16 NFL Picks: Playoff Contenders That Will Move Closer to Clinching Postseason Berth
With just two games remaining these playoff contenders cannot afford slipping up this week. A loss to a team like the Dallas Cowboys, would hurt their chances at clinching a playoff berth either this week, or next week.
When Dallas played Philadelphia earlier this year, they were forced to abandon a running game that helped them win five out of six games this year.
This time around, we will see the Cowboys contain the Eagles early in the game. This will allow Dallas to not have to rely on Tony Romo and the passing game. Dallas did contain Philadelphia’s passing game, only allowing 256 yards. However, the Eagles rushing game ripped the Cowboys apart for 239 yards.
Dallas will correct their mistakes and move one-step closer to winning the NFC East division.
New York Jets
The Jets are on the fringe of the playoffs as the six-seed. With a win against the New York Giants this week, they will all but clinch the final spot in the AFC.
The Jets have an average offense this year, ranking 21st in passing and rushing offense. The Giants are awful this year on defense ranking 29th and 21st against opposing teams passing and rushing offenses.
The Jets, led by Mark Sanchez, will cruise to victory with bragging rights as the best team in New York.
Denver took a step back last week, when they lost to the New England Patriots. However, this week, they will get back to winning against the Buffalo Bills.
This year, in six of Tim Tebow’s seven wins as a quarterback, they have come against teams with a .500 record or worse. That’s good news for Broncos fans, as the Bills are 5-9 and have lost their last seven games.
Denver will move to within one game of clinching the AFC West division, led by Tebow.
These three teams all need a win this week. Luckily for their fans, they will destroy their competition this week, and move closer to making the postseason.
