APC Week 16 NFL Picks: With Rodgers playing, Packers should beat Jets

New, comments

With #12 on the field, APC feels good about Green Bay improving to 6-8-1.

New York Jets v Green Bay Packers

Acme Packing Company’s writers are in sync with the sportsbooks in Las Vegas and across the internet. Following Aaron Rodgers’ pronouncement that he would play on Sunday for the Green Bay Packers against the New York Jets, the books moved the line on the game back to favoring the Packers, giving them a three-point edge over the 4-10 Jets.

APC’s picks would seem to agree that the Packers should be the victorious team in week 16, though the two teams have little to play for. It’s a near-unanimous selection among our staff that the Packers will win, with the Jets garnering just one pick among our 13 contributors. You can bet that the number of writers picking New York would have been higher had DeShone Kizer been the expected starter instead.

Meanwhile, this week’s games seem to have big favorites across the board, at least up until the two biggest contests of the weekend. Steelers-Saints should be a good one, and at least a handful of writers are picking Pittsburgh to pull the upset. Then the Sunday Night game pits the Chiefs and Seahawks against one another, and that game goes down as a narrow 7-6 decision by our staff in favor of Kansas City.

Here are our full picks for this week’s games.
