Written by: Nicholas Mullick

Week 16 of the NFL Season has concluded and there were a few upsets this week that resulted in people being eliminated in survivor. Let's dive into how I did, giving my top 5 options that I gave to pick in Survivor and a trap game to avoid choosing for Week 16 of the NFL season.

Week 16 Top 5 Survivor Options

Week 16 Record (3-2)

Overall Record (61-19)

1. Dallas Cowboys vs Washington Football Team

Wow, this was a total deletion here. The Washington Football Team got absolutely destroyed in this matchup. The Cowboys just outmatched the Washington Football team and showed that they are the best team in the NFC East. I think this game seals Washington's playoff chances. But this game continues to show that “the culture is actually good’’ in Washington still to this day. I still can’t believe former GM Bruce Allen said that in a press conference when discussing the culture when former Head Coach Jay Gruden recently got fired ignoring all the bad culture surrounding the organization. So what happened was in the middle of this game on live television DT Johnathan Allen punched DT Da’ron Payne on the sidelines.

2. Kansas City Chiefs vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Many were surprised that this game was a blowout. But I was not one of these people. The Pittsburgh Steelers are terrible. They are a lot worse than what their record shows. The Steelers offense was abysmal as excluding RB Najee Harris (who was solid in this game but more positives than negatives came from his performance ) and WR Diontae Johnson the offense stinks. The o-line is awful and they have a QB in Big Ben that should have retired years ago when he had his elbow injury. Chase Claypool has been disappointing as well this season both on and off the football field. This defense was abysmal especially with LB Devin Bush on the Covid list and DE/EDGE Rusher TJ Watt who is no question their best player on this team was not even 100% Healthy. Watt was not ready to play this game and should have been inactive. One thing is absolutely for sure and that is this team was unprepared and unmotivated in this game. Just look at them on the sidelines of this team early in this game. They looked so unenergetic. That is all on coaching and I have said it before and will say it again. The Coaching on this team is brutal. Defensive Coordinator Keith Butler should have been fired years ago and Matt Canada is an awful offensive coordinator. Tomlin again has been horrendous with his time management skills. One other thing too and it goes to show how undisciplined this team is. What is with the Steelers every time they are down by like 20 points and players many times are just celebrating? What are you celebrating for your down by three touchdowns? Again I ask Why is Mike Tomlin still the head coach of this team again? On a side note, I was annoyed that the commentators in this game kept repeating that Mike Tomlin has never had a losing season. But overall strong performance for the Kansas City Chiefs as they clinched the entire AFC West division.

3. Philadelphia Eagles vs New York Giants

Not going to go on long here as the New York Giants have clearly given up at this point. They are in full tank mode now. Jake Fromm is terrible and Mike Glennon, well is Mike Glennon. The Giants defense was abysmal as well. The Eagles did what they had to do and took care of business.

4. Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans

Wait, the Texans actually won this game. This was the most surprising win of the week for me. What an absolutely terrible performance by the Los Angeles Chargers. Herbert had an off night but Davis Mills was impressive in this matchup. The player of the game for the Houston Texans was Rex Burkhead as he ran all over the Chargers. This game heavily exposed the Chargers and they better fix things quickly if they want to make the playoffs this season. But this was a very telling performance.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Jets

This was a risky pick and sadly it didn't work out if anyone chose the Jacksonville Jaguars. Honestly like I said as a Jags/Jets fan this game was a win-win no matter the results but It shows how much of a mess the Jaguars are that they can't beat a team that has a covid outbreak and are without their head coach.

Trap Survivor Pick: Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens

I was completely wrong about this game. The Bengals are the real deal and absolutely should take the AFC North Division. If I am a Ravens fan I would absolutely press the panic button due to the number of injuries the team has to deal with now. This showed that the Ravens are on the down and the Bengals are on the up.
