Fine, Whatever: NFL Week 16 Thursday Picks

NFL Picks

Here are Will and Derek’s picks for the Week 16 Thursday night game. Picks for the remainder of the games will run on Friday.

(Home team in caps. Line per VegasInsider.com consensus.)

JACKSONVILLE (-3.5) vs. Tennessee

The Basics:

Jacksonville: 2-12, 4th AFC South, #31 total offense, #32 scoring offense, #28 total defense, #29 scoring defense

Tennessee: 2-12, 3rd AFC South, #29 total offense, #29 scoring offense, #29 total defense, #31 scoring defense

Derek: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jacksonville Jaguars are favored! That’s the kind of football game we’re getting on the final NFL Thursday of 2014.

That’s not all! Charlie Whitehurst is involved. He can drive any vehicle to its limit.

Forget the football game. No one cares about that. I want a camera in Marcus Mariota’s house. I want to watch him watch the football game. What will he think as he watches Blake Bortles (if he plays) run for his life constantly? How will he feel watching the lethargic Titans and realizing he could be playing for them within six months? At precisely what point will he start drinking? I’d like to know.

Oh, right. The pick. Uh, Gus Bradley seems to have the Jaguars actually trying. That’s good enough for me! The Jags cover.

Will: No pick.
