As an independent sports writer, my goal for the 2020-21 NFL season wasn’t to get a certain number of views, gain an amount of followers, or make any tangible profit. Instead, it was simply to finish out the season writing Picks and Power Rankings every week. In 2019, I made it through Week 12 of the season. In 2020, I’m determined to finish what I started.

But as an unpaid sports writer, it’s easy for life to sometimes get in the way of those plans. Between work and spending time with loved ones for the holidays, I was unable to publish my Week 16 NFL picks on time. Instead, I sent out some quick tweets just to prove who I was picking in each game before they were played. I’m publishing these tweets as an article to remain consistent with my picks and to have them on record on this website.

I won’t really be sharing this around (why would anyone want to read picks after the game has been played?), but if you find yourself reading this I truly appreciate it: it means you probably found it on your own, perhaps after viewing another article on this website.
