Just as always we have few games that we can single out to be very interesting and in which we might see a team that is not favorite beating its rival. Here is our prediction on three most likely upsets in NFL’s Week 16.
BUFFALO BILLS over Miami Dolphins – Ryan Tannehill is out with a knee injury, but Miami was able to get the job done last week against some weak competition. Jets are a mess right now, and we can’t say whether or not this Dolphins team can be successful without their starting signal caller based on that match alone. Bills are a decent squad, they will be playing at home, and we can see them possibly winning this game against their divisional rivals.
BALTIMORE RAVENS over Pittsburgh Steelers – Two big divisional rivals playing for all the marbles. If the Steelers win this duel, they are going to the Playoffs as divisional champions. That is why we think the Ravens will step up and give their all to win this game. Pittsburgh offense is favored in this one, but Baltimore’s defense is one of the best in the NFL. Ravens winning this match at Heinz Field wouldn’t surprise us at all.
CINCINNATI BENGALS over Houston Texans – This is easily the likeliest upset of the week. Tom Savage will be at quarterback for the Texans against Adam Jones and this improving Bengals defense. Cincinnati crew is better than their record shows, but injuries and tough schedule were a big part of their bad year. It’s not only the fact that they can upset slightly favored Texans in Houston, but we are actually picking them to win this game 24:17 on Sunday.
