NFL week 16 game picks: Raiders will complete season sweep of Chargers

New, comments
Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

After pummeling the Chargers in front of a crowd of mostly Raiders fans in San Diego, the staff is expecting the Raiders will make it 2-0 over the Chargers in 2015 as they visit Oakland. It's the home finale and Charles Woodson's farewell game so you can expect the Raiders will be fired up.

Last week, the staff was unanimous in picking the Raiders to fall to the Packers and we were correct. Then again, the previous week all but one of us (Asher) picked the Broncos to do the same and the Raiders took that game in Denver.

Also last week, the best record went to Jeff who put up a nearly flawless 15-1 record for the week. Five of the six of us came in with a record of 12-4 or better. Just RDreamer fell behind with a 9-7 mark.

There were a great man unanimous picks this week. Thirteen to be exact, which means there was only three games in which we weren't all in agreement. Which has to be some kind of record. The only games in which we didn't agree across the board were Washington at Philly, Indy at Miami, and Jags at New Orleans.

The community also had a good week with their picks last week. Though none could reach our staff's best, two predictors pulled in a 14-2 mark: Demnes and coloraider. And had coloraider picked the Packers to win, he too would have been 15-1. Here are this week's top results:
