Week 15 had it all. Do you like one of the league’s young stud quarterbacks giving Tom Brady a taste of his own comeback medicine? Boom. Joe Burrow and the Bengals had you covered. Do you love watching America’s Team lose in soul-crushing fashion? Rayshawn Jenkins and the fine folks from Duuuuuval took care of that. Perhaps more than anything, you enjoy it when the knife gets twisted on Bill Belichick, not the other way around. Well, the Raiders, with an unfathomable, boneheaded assist from Jakobi Meyers, took care of that. Oh, and guess what? Your Detroit Lions, the Official Team of the Weekly Picks Column, got it done again, thanks to a ballsy fourth-and-the-game play call. What does Week 16 have in store? First, a suddenly very important Jaguars-Jets Thursday-nighter, the Seahawks trying to stay in the NFC race at Kansas City, the Lions traveling to Carolina to try and continue their furious run, and an NFC East powerhouse battle between Philadelphia and Dallas. Oh, and the NFC South race is still wide open, even if none of the teams are good. There is one sad note across the league this week; just days before his number was to be formally retired by the Steelers, Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris, the central figure in the Immaculate Reception, passed away. Let’s get to the games.
