Week 16 NFL Picks: Not much hope for Packers over Vikings

New, comments

APC is unanimous in our pick for this week’s Packers game.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

If you came to Acme Packing Company expecting a ray of sunshine as we approach the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Minnesota Vikings, we are sorry to say that there are none to be found in this week’s picks. Each and every member of the APC staff who submitted predictions for this week has picked Minnesota, and with the Vikings being nine-point favorites, it’s not hard to imagine why.

The Packers’ chances took yet another blow on Friday, when cornerback Damarious Randall was added to the team’s injury report with a knee injury. Both Randall and Davon House are now questionable, and Demetri Goodson landed on injured reserve, further depleting an already thin secondary.

That is of course in addition to the biggest absences this week, as Aaron Rodgers was returned to injured reserve and Davante Adams was ruled out on Thursday due to his concussion.

Fun stuff, right?

Without further ado, here are our picks for the games taking place around the NFL in week sixteen.
