Lots of games tomorrow, so I'll take this opportunity to bestow JOHNNY B'S WEEK 16 NFL PREDICTIONS!
This week's celebrity disclaimer spokesperson is Paul Dini's enchanting creation, Jingle Belle. Jing, if you please: THESE PICKS ARE FOR (his own, and presumably your) AMUSEMENT PURPOSES ONLY! DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT TAKE THESE PREDICTIONS AND BET YOUR HARD-EARNED OR SOFT-EARNED MONEY ON THEM, BECAUSE HE DOESN'T KNOW ANY MORE ABOUT THE NFL THAN THE AVERAGE FAN, AND HAS BEEN KNOWN TO BE INCORRECT QUITE FREQUENTLY! AND YOU DON'T KNOW HIM- HE MIGHT BE CRAZY, OR F*CKING WITH YOU!
Last week: a pathetic 8-8. Season so far, + or - 1 game: 136-73, .651.
CAROLINA over Dallas
CINCINNATI over Buffalo
PITTSBURGH over Cleveland. If you're betting, take the Browns and the points.
JACKSONVILLE over Houston
KANSAS CITY over San Diego
MIAMI over Tennessee
NEW ORLEANS over Detroit
ST. LOUIS over San Francisco
TAMPA BAY over Atlanta. Breaks my heart. But there's no way they're going to march into Tampa with that slack defense and muddled-up QB and pull one out.
NY GIANTS over Washington
PHILADELPHIA over Arizona
DENVER over Oakland
SEATTLE over Indianapolis. The Colts' minds will be elsewhere after the Dungy's tragedy and the loss of their first game last weekend, plus it's never easy to travel cross country and play in Seattle.
CHICAGO over Green Bay
BALTIMORE over Minnesota
NEW ENGLAND over the NY Jets.
I finished strong in the money fantasy league at 5-9 (I was 1-8 at one point!), and the only thing I accomplished was blowing the #1 pick. Bah.
In the freebie league, I lost my playoff game to someone who was fortunate enough to play the Ravens D in that Monday Night debacle. I play this weekend for 3rd place. Humbug.
