Week 16 results and Week 17 Predictions

Dread has come upon us all. The last week of the regular season. Not only does this mean the end of the regular football year, it is the most brutal week of the year for a football prognosticator. This is the week that sends cold chills through our prostates. This is the week when nothing follows the norm.

Who will start? Who will rest? Will the Bears or Patriots really try to win the game? Do the Raiders really want to spoil? Will the Bengals spoil the Ravens shot at the title?

All of this is maddening. If you can even go 8-8 in this week, you are genius. This is the most evil week of the year for the handicapper.
