Week 16 NFL Picks: Predicting The Unpredictable

Only two weeks remain in the 2010 regular season and 20 teams are still in contention for a trip to Super Bowl XLV.  Chicago has locked up the NFC North, and Atlanta, New England and Pittsburgh have clinched playoff berths.

Currently, seven of the eight divisions feature a team in or tied for the top spot that did not win its division in 2009.

DIVISION 2009 CHAMPION LEADERS THROUGH WEEK 15
AFC East Patriots Patriots (12-2)**
AFC North Bengals Steelers (10-4)**; Ravens (10-4)
AFC South Colts Colts (8-6); Jaguars (8-6)
AFC West Chargers Chiefs (9-5)**
NFC East Cowboys Eagles (10-4)**
NFC North Vikings Bears (10-4)*
NFC South Saints Falcons (12-2)**
NFC West Cardinals Rams (6-8); Seahawks (6-8)
*Division champion; **Can clinch division title this weekend

If this holds, it would mark the most new division winners in a season since realignment in 2002. How are you supposed to make good picks in a wacky season like this?

Our pick 'em panel is also entering the home stretch, and newcomer KD Drummond took the honors last week, correctly predicting 12 of 16 games. This moves him into the top three and - with a little luck - into contention for the top spot. At the bottom of the standings, a mad scramble has started to avoid finishing last. All our picks for Christmas weekend after the break.
