Who's picking who to win in Week 16?

The Seattle Seahawks win their next three games and they will most likely be in the postseason. To guarantee that, they would need to win out while the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings lose once each. The Vikings still have to play the Detroit Lions twice and the Rams have to play the San Francisco 49ers, but here's hoping somehow somewhere the Rams and Vikings lose another game.

After losing four straight games between Weeks 11 and 14, expecting Seattle to then win four straight might be too much simply because nothing has come overly easy for Seattle all year. Tennessee struggles offensively, but they could limit Seattle's offense as well. The Titans are eighth in the NFL in sacks (41) though they are only 24th in blitz percentage. Tennessee also allows just 3.9 yards per carry, seventh-best in the league.

This could be a game that the Seahawks defense needs to win. Tennessee throws the ball just 55.9 percent of downs (24th in the NFL), so stopping the run is a must for Seattle. Tennessee also scores 18.4 points per game, 26th in the league. The game might not be pretty, but Seattle should win a low-scoring matchup. Seahawks 18 Titans 15.
