Happy holidays and welcome to Week 16, the championship week for most of you in your RSO leagues. If you have made it this far, congrats as it is an impressive feat, and best of luck in your pursuit of fantasy immortality today. The NFL playoff picture will look pretty clear save a spot (or possibly two) at the end of the day, and if yesterday was any indication, we should have a great slate of games today. All three games had playoff implications yesterday and were decided by a touchdown or less. The Texans edged out the Bucs due to four INTs by Jameis, the Pats did what the Pats do and beat the Bills at home to clinch their 11th straight AFC East title, and then Jimmy G put last year’s NFC Champs out of the playoffs this year, showing once again how much parity exists in the NFL. Kyle, Matt and I were all 3-0 yesterday (along with most of America as the three “better” teams won), but like the NFL’s playoff picture, this contest will likely be complete by the end of this week, as Kyle has a seven game lead over Matt and an eight game lead over me, due to his 24-8 record over the last couple of weeks. The real test will be if Kyle can take down ESPN’s leading expert at the moment, Trey Wingo. Our picks for this week are below. We hope everyone enjoys the games and has a happy and healthy holiday week!

Kyle takes a commanding lead with two weeks to go by going 10-6. Matt was too focused on keeping his perfect season going in the RSO Writers League. Kyle just needs a normal last two weeks here to maintain the crown. Papson could overcome and I am so far out of it now it is not even funny. No Thursday football this week but two playoff implication games for all four teams involved tomorrow as the Redskins travel to Nashville to take on the Titans and the Ravens go to LA to take on the red hot Chargers, who need to keep winning to try to win the AFC West and get a first-round bye in the playoffs. Our picks for those games and the rest of the slate on Sunday are below. Good luck to everyone playing for an RSO championship this weekend!
