Final Score: Giants 7 - Cardinals 26

Week 16 Picks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions (+9.5) - Bucs pull out a close game on the final drive Bucs 34 - Lions 28

Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-3) - Broncos win on coaching Broncos 23 - Chargers 20

Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks (-1) - Hate to do it, but Seattle wins the West Seahawks 31 - Rams 29

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys (+2.5) - Big game from Hurts carries Eagles Eagles 51 - Cowboys 34

Tennessee Titans vs. Green Bay Packers (-3.5) - Titans show that they belong Titans 38 - Packers 24

Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots (+7) - Bill can't stop the Bills Bills 31 - Patriots 13

San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals (-5)


Why SF Wins: Perhaps the change from Nick Mullens to C.J. Beathard will give the 49ers the shot in the arm that they desperately needed. Although it's unclear what Shanahan is thinking, apparently there is a good chance that TE George Kittle will play in this game as well. A few fresh faces spark the offense, while the sturdy defense returns and the 49ers remember to cover WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Why SF Loses: Arizona is a better football team. The 49ers coaches are struggling and C.J. Beathard is the 49ers' new hope at the quarterback position. None of this adds up to a 49ers victory. Arizona has everything to play for, and the 49ers are just praying for no more injuries.

Prediction: The 49ers pull off a Christmas miracle and gift their fans with a surprise win. Ho Ho Ho Faithful. Merry Christmas! 49ers 28 - Cardinals 20
