Christmas Day brings another classic AFC West matchup as the Las Vegas Raiders hit the road to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. We’re also going to find out who has been naughty and who has been nice in the Silver and Black Pride Pick’em competition as we now have less than a month left in the regular season...apologies for the terrible Christmas pun.

As always, our competition is brought to you by DraftKings Sportsbook where you can find gambling lines and prop bets for the entire slate of Week 16 games. DraftKings has the Raiders are heavy road dogs this week while the Detroit Lions are favorites on the road against the Minnesota Vikings, and the San Francisco 49ers are nearly a touchdown favorite against the Baltimore Ravens.

As for the Pick’em competition, below is a look at where our writers stand after Week 15.

  1. Bill Williamson 148-76 (66%)
  2. Ray Aspuria 130-80 (62%)
  3. Matt Holder 138-86 (62%)

It was a huge week for your boy last week! I went 13-3 which not only led the writers but also ranked 11th out of all of Tallysight’s analysts and managed to tie Ray for second place. Bill and Ray had strong performances as well with Bill going 12-4 and Ray finishing 11-5. It certainly helped that the recent run of upsets slowed down last weekend.

Chrome&Onyx is still at the top of the community leaderboard but we have a new co-leader with Edgaredm08 putting together a strong performance by picking 12 winners. We now have seven people within three picks of each other with three weeks to go!

Rich Zagger gets the big shoutout for this with an impressive 14-2 performance. As a whole, the group did very well with seven people getting 13 picks correctly and nine with 12! Everyone deserves a big pat on the back with a big bounce-back performance in Week 15.

As a reminder, there are two games on Saturday this week so don’t procrastinate on your picks or it could cost you a chance to win it all.

Best of luck to everyone! Don’t forget to make your picks and may your picks be good! Also, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas for those who celebrate!
