NFL Predictions

December 24, 2016

Some notes, but even I, try hard as I might, can not see the “puzzle/what ‘they’ want for the final week, in the admittedly “done right,” battle for NFL playoff spots and position.

I will say and this often does NOT work, if the Titans win their One PM Eastern time tilt, at Jacksonville vs the Jaguars, the Houston Texans essentially have no real “playoffs’ motivation for their Christmas Eve game at home vs the Cincinnati Bengals tonight.

If Tennessee wins, the winner of next week’s Houston at Tennessee tilt (Tennessee was once the Houston Oilers), will win the AFC South. Essentially that would leave Houston with little to play for vs Cincy as next week’s game almost certainly would determine Houston’s playoffs qualification fate.

Now if “Tenn” wins and Houston wins, then an unlikely tie in the “Hous” at “Tenn” game would still give the “div’ title to Houston. Also Houston with a win would keep alive hopes of being a three seed. I suppose Houston at (9-7) could still qualify for the ‘offs, as an AFC wild card team.

However, I believe if the Titans win, Houston has little motivation. However, even in that scenario no play on that game for me.

Two “system” games and slight nods from me, the Jets getting a huge number 17 points at New England. Last year, in the penultimate game, the Jets upset “N.E.” and it led to the Pats not getting the AFC one seed and an eventual loss to the “chosen” Peyton Manning and Denver. Today N.E. 31 Jets 17

The other loser/loser/underdog system game and also worthy of a slight nod is Arizona plus 8 points at Seattle. Sea en route to a very likely, not certain NFC two seed win but do not cover. Say Sea 15 Az 10.
