Week 16 NFL Picks Celebrate Holidays, But Hope Cardinals Win Doesn’t Mean Apocalypse (Podcast)

BearsWeek 15 was an appetizing slate of NFL football games, but Week 16 will likely pale in comparison.

That’s if we even get to the weekend.

Some feel the end of days is near — choosing to believe the Mayan calendar is telling us that the world will end on Friday. If that is the case, what a bummer. But then again, it’s only fitting that the Arizona Cardinals won a game in the final week of football this world will see.

Of course, NESN.com editors Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle aren’t betting on the end of the world. They expect to make it through to see football on Sunday. That didn’t stop them from discussing the potential apocalypse in this week’s podcast, though. They touched on that as well as some football in the latest NESN.com NFL picks podcast.

Check that out at the bottom of the page, and see their picks below.
