Many businesses are winding down as we come into the holiday season, with the week of Christmas traditionally being a time of year where we take some time out to spend it with family, friends, and loved ones. However, the NFL is ramping up for an exciting week of games.
And if the buzz already being generated on online betting platforms and online casinos as found on Canadiancasino.org is anything to go by, Week 16 of the NFL season looks set to be an absolute cracker!
There is still everything to play for with only three weeks left to go in the regular NFL season. And with everything that has gone on in this last season so far, what the end of the season will look like seems more uncertain than ever. And with the threat of Covid-19 rearing its ugly head once again, we still don’t know whether this will impact how the last three weeks of the season play out.
However, putting aside the pandemic uncertainty for just a moment, let’s take a look at some of what Week 16 has in store!
49ers vs Titans
The 49ers will be making the long trip to Nashville on Thursday night to prepare for what will undoubtedly be a tough contest against the Titans.
Regarding their respective positions going into this clash, both teams have played remarkably different seasons. While the 49ers have put in a string of solid performances, the Titans have been on a bit of a slide—particularly as they struggle without Derrick Henry.
The Titans fumbled a lead in their recent game against Pittsburgh, while the 49ers looked strong against the Falcons.
With all this in mind, early predictions suggest that the 49ers will clinch a victory over the Titans in this upcoming clash.
Browns vs Packers
The Browns will be doing their best to stay in the AFC North and the AFC Wild Card races in this upcoming game. The AFC North is looking a little bit stalled at the minute. However, if they manage to snag a victory over the Packers, they could significantly increase their overall standings. However, their recovery is looking a bit uncertain at the minute, as a recent Covid outbreak on the team put some obstacles in their way.
For the Packers, things are looking a little bit brighter. They already have a solid chance of securing an NFC North title but still have some stiff competition ahead to secure the number 1 slot. All eyes will be on Aaron Rodgers to put in a solid performance—although whether or not all the recent controversies he has become embroiled in will impact his performance remains to be seen.
Colts vs Cardinals
After a recent win against the Patriots, things have been looking incredibly positive for the Colts. And with seven of their last nine games resulting in a win, there is definitely a bit of hype behind them as they enter the final stages of the NFL season. They are also battling for a top spot in the AFC South, with the Titans hot on their heels.
For the Cardinals, things are looking a little bit different. They are looking to regain confidence after a series of disappointing performances during their last two games against the Rams and the Lions. With that said, the Cardinals will be doing everything in their power to secure a victory against the Colts to give themselves a fighting chance to make it to the playoffs.
Bills vs Patriots
Having matched up a few weeks ago in some fairly extreme weather conditions, fans of both teams are hoping that the weather gods will be kind to them during this upcoming game.
The New England Patriots just managed to secure a 14-10 victory despite the harsh weather conditions in their last clash. However, this was far from a one-sided game, with both teams putting in solid performances.
The Patriots quarterback had a decent run, and they managed to run the ball a total of 46 times for 222 yards. Although, we should note that the Buffalo Bills defense has been looking fairly weak this season, with the Chiefs, Buccaneers, Titans, Colts, and Panthers all running through them. This comes in addition to an offensive line that has lacked a spark.
With all these factors considered, if the Patriots get a decent bit of weather on their side, it looks like they could put in a much-improved performance against the Bills.
