What’s your top upset pick for Week 16?
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Seahawks +2.5 over Chiefs. The home-field atmosphere of Seattle with a running game that can control tempo will allow the Seahawks to limit the possessions for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense, while also creating more efficient passing situations. I’m calling for an old-school approach for the Seahawks to grab the upset win.
Dan Graziano, national NFL writer: Raiders +2.5 over Broncos. This week’s Monday night game could be the last Raiders game ever played in Oakland. I have no idea what that means for the atmosphere, as there is no outer limit on either side of the possibility spectrum. I do know the Broncos are cooked, that at last check they were just about out of cornerbacks and receivers, that Derek Carr is playing well and that Jon Gruden will find a way to get his crew fired up about this weirdly historic event.
