With just two weeks left in the regular season, the standings for our weekly pick’ em are crystal clear. Vasilis and the readers are tied for the top spot, while Kyle, Frank and Spencer are in a tight-knit cluster behind them. After that, everyone else is playing catch up.

In Week 16, there are three games being played on Saturday, so be sure to get your selections in earlier than usual!

Updated standings

T-1) Vasilis and BB readers 145-79

2) Kyle 137-87

T-3) Frank and Spencer 136-88

4) Eric 130-94

5) Jake 125-95


Unanimous Selections

Our writers were in agreement on the following games:

  • 49ers > Rams
  • Falcons > Jaguars
  • Ravens > Browns
  • Seahawks > Cardinals
  • Broncos > Lions
  • Chiefs > Bears

Despite a letdown performance last week, our staff thinks the 49ers will bounce back against their division rival - the Rams. The team who beat San Francisco, the Falcons, have won their past two games and based on the pick’ em, they’ll make it three this week against Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars.

The Ravens are traveling to Cleveland with a chance to clinch the No. 1 seed in the AFC, as well as avenge their loss the Browns in Week 4. Therefore, it’s not surprising to see all of our writers pick them to win. Same goes for the Seahawks, who have a favorable matchup against the Cardinals.

Denver vs. Detroit is, on paper, maybe the most least enticing matchup of the week. Nobody was willing to take the injury-ravaged Lions over the Broncos, though. On Sunday night, the Chiefs are a heavy favorite to defeat the Bears.

“Lone Wolf”

Three of our writers strayed from the norm this week :

  • Jake is alone is taking the Buccaneers to upset the Texans
  • Eric was the only writer to choose the Panthers over the Colts
  • Frank went out a limb to pick the Jets to defeat the Steelers
