A COVID-infused Week 15 in the NFL was predictably, well, unpredictable. Three games originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were postponed to Monday and Tuesday, which is very reminiscent of exactly around this time a year ago.

Unfortunately, a number of teams have continued to place players on the COVID-19/Reserve list this week, again making many games difficult to predict. Nevertheless, our weekly game picks segment treks on. From division titles up for grabs and playoff implications, there’s a lot on the line in Week 16.

Consensus picks —

Our writers are in agreement on a number of games this week, starting with Saturday’s matchup between the Packers and Browns — where Green Bay is a 7.5-point favorite at home. The Packers clinched the NFC North title with last week’s win over the Ravens.

Other unanimously-picked teams favored by more than a touchdown include the Chargers, Eagles, Buccaneers, Chiefs and Cowboys. The Chargers, Eagles and Cowboys are all 9.5-point favorites over their respective opponents and are jostling for playoff positioning.

The Rams, favored by 2.5 points over the Vikings, are looking for a third straight victory to keep pace in the NFC West — something all of our staff sees happening. Another NFC West team, the Seahawks, are a near-touchdown favorite in their matchup against a reeling Bears squad that has lost three games in a row.

Kansas City is currently a 7.5-point favorite over the Steelers, a line that could certainly move with the statuses of Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill up in the air. The Chiefs have won seven games in a row to seize control of the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
