NFL Picks: Week 16 Results / Week 17 Picks




The 2008 NFL Regular season is almost in the books. There are a lot of memories, a lot of coulda woulda shoulda's, but in the end there will only be one champion, both in the NFL and in our NFL Picks!

Since this is a blog site, I would like to express my opinion on something kind of out of the blue. I noticed something bizarre when I was watching the Saturday Night game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens. I noticed that the Cowboys are a terribly coached team, but I noticed something even more weird. Check out this amazing similarity between Ravens Quarterback Joe Flacco, who looks a lot like the character Sylar on NBC's TV show "Heroes" played by actor Zachary Quinto, who will also play the character "Spock" in the upcoming Star Trek movie.

Deus Legend also made a comparison between I, Jerhawk, and Browns Quarterback Brady Quinn. I don't know about this one too much...


Well, now that I've got that off my chest, onto the pick results from Week 16. Here's the results of our Double EXP Weekend:


Failed 2-Point Conversions:
Jacksonville Jaguars losing to the Indianapolis Colts: JRC 865
Detroit Lions losing to the New Orleans Saints: Deus Legend, JRC 865, Flynn4DaWin, xSgt MeatLoafx, Finch 865
Arizona Cardinals losing to the New England Patriots: xSgt MeatLoafx


Converted 2-Point Conversions:
Oakland Raiders defeating the Houston Texans: xSgt MeatLoafx

Here's the other picks that people tried to pick different from everyone else:
-Jerhawk was the only one to get the Kansas City Chiefs WRONG after they lost to the Miami Dolphins.
-Finch865 was the lone wolf to pick the Tennessee Titans CORRECT as they stomped on the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans showed no class by the way in stomping on the Terrible Towel. Yes, I don't like the Steelers after they beat my 'Hawks in the Super Bowl, but the Titans will have a rude awakening if they meet the Steelers again in the playoffs.
-Stopable and Finch865 were the only ones to get the Buffalo Bills CORRECT after the kicked the Denver Broncos. What a collapse by the Broncos, eh? Who do they think they are, the New York Mets?
-Flynn4DaWin and xSgt MeatLoafx were the only brave souls to get the Seattle Seahawks CORRECT after they threw a snow ball at Brett Favre. Looks like Sgt MeatLoaf brought the Seahawks some luck.
-Deus Legend and Flynn4DaWin got the New York Giants CORRECT, and were the only people to do so.
-xSgt MeatLoafx was the only person to get the Green Bay Packers WRONG as they lost to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night in overtime.

Here are the results from Week 16 alone:
T1.) Deus Legend / 10
T1.) Stopable / 10
2.) xSgt MeatLoaf / 9
3.) Finch865 / 8
T4.) Flynn4DaWin / 7
T4.) Jerhawk / 7
5.) JRC 865 / 6


Now our overall NFL Picks PowerRankings through Week 16, presented this week by Vizio.
1.) Jerhawk / 151
2.) xSgt MeatLoafx / 146
3.) Stopable / 144
4.) Flynn4DaWin / 142
5.) JRC 865 / 140
6.) Deus Legend / 138
7.) Finch865 / 85

Here are the games for Week 17, the last week in the NFL regular season. For those who are wondering though, nobody is being eliminated, and nobody will be eliminated throughout the Playoffs. It will just go simply as the Wild Card Round is worth 2 Points per game, the Divisional Round are 3 Points per game, the Conference Championships are 4 Points a game, and the Super Bowl is worth 5 Points. This is the last week for our Double EXP Weekend/2-Point Conversions also.
