NFL week 16 game picks: Late season parity a killer

New, comments
Ronald Martinez

It was a tough week for picks. No one had a great week with the best record as 9-7 and the worst coming in at 7-9. Seems hard to believe there was such agreement on game winners last week considering everyone was so wrong on so many of them. Parity rules supreme even this late in the season.

No one changed spots this week in the rankings. Only Asher and Jeff had winning records at 9-7. There were a record 13 consensus picks and we came in a pathetic 7-6 in those games.

There is ‘just' nine consensus picks this week so it should get more interesting. Asher went rogue with his choice of the Buccaneers over the Rams and Steelers to upend the Matt Flynn led Packers. SOB was alone in picking the Kirk Cousins to put it on the Cowboys' NFL worst defense. I guess he figures if Matt Flynn can do it, any old backup will do. He may be right. We'll see.

There is no Thursday night game this week so we won't have to be disappointed until Sunday.
