Week 15 NFL game picks: Even after big win in Denver, Raiders no match for Packers

New, comments
Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders big win in Denver has given way to a new found optimism that has many fans thinking they can carry that momentum over as the Packers come to Oakland. There may be plenty of reason for hope, but that hope isn't enough to have the S&BP staff picking the Raiders to find that magic again this week.

Last week, there was a three-way tie for the best mark at 11-5. One of those (Asher) was thanks in part to correctly picking the Raiders to win.

This week along with the Packers*, the unanimous picks are the Patriots, Chiefs, Vikings, and Seahawks.

*RDreamer's pick for the Raiders vs Packers will be revealed in his Friday Foretelling.

As for the community; there were two predictors who topped out staff's best. Pillage4fun and Raidernation263 took first place in week 14 at 12-4.  Not surprisingly, all of the top three picked the Raiders to win. This marks the first week either of them has placed/tied in 1st for a week. Overall leaders other than rryivers(3rd to begin the week) had a bad week and went 8-8.
