Week 16 of the NFL season kicks off with a pair of games Saturday. The Dallas Cowboys are back home Sunday as they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All Dallas has to do is win this game and they get the division and a berth in the playoffs. Our defense is so strong even with the beat down they got from the Colts last Sunday. They'll be fine and back to their old self Sunday. The Bucs have been a weird team this year. Despite how horrid the offense is, I expect the Cowboys to get this win.

The Houston Texans travel to Philadelphia to take on Nick Foles and the Eagles. The Eagles are coming off an impressive win against the Los Angeles Rams. There is just something about Foles and how the players rally around him when he's filling in for Carson Wentz. It's kinda scary, actually. I don't think it will scare the Texans that much, though. The Eagles will keep it close but Houston comes out on top by a touchdown.

Sunday will be a great game. Whitehouse Wildcat Patrick Mahomes leads his team into Seattle against the Seahawks. We know the story of Mahomes and the Chiefs this season. The offense is near perfect and the defense is improving. But Seattle has been defying odds this season. Most everyone thought they were done. Just the opposite. They will be a team no one wants to meet in the playoffs, which is bad news for the Cowboys who will likely face Seattle in the first round if the Cowboys advance. I hate to say this but I think Seattle will beat Kansas City.
