Parting Schotts: NFL 2018 Week 16 picks

Bigger debate in Philadelphia: Foles vs. Wentz or Ken Schott's Eagles' picks?
Carson Wentz vs. Nick Foles is the big talk in Philadelphia right now.
Carson Wentz vs. Nick Foles is the big talk in Philadelphia right now.

There has been a major debate taking place on the sportstalk shows in Philadelphia the last few days. The hosts have been going back-and-forth. The callers can’t seem to agree.

The Carson Wentz/Nick Foles starting quarterback debate? Nah, that’s secondary.

The big topic of discussion is whether or not Philadelphia native Ken Schott should continue to pick against his beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

I have picked against the Eagles twice in the last three weeks. Maybe they were inspired by me and that’s why they beat the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Rams. When I have picked them to win, like I did against the Dallas Cowboys, they lost.

It’s a tough decision to make this week as the Eagles look to keep their playoff hopes alive when they host the Houston Texans on Sunday.

As for me keeping my hopes alive of defeating Gazette news columnist Sara Foss in our battle, I have waved the white flag. Sara went 9-7 last week to improve to 145-79-2. I was a pitiful 7-9. I’m now 136-86-2. The race is over.

Week 16 kicks off Saturday. Here are my picks.

Tennessee 30, Washington 17
L.A. Chargers 34, Baltimore 20

Green Bay 28, N.Y, Jets 16
Cleveland 27, Cincinnati 20
Dallas 34, Tampa Bay 10
Minnesota 24, Detroit 17
New England 35, Buffalo 13
Atlanta 26, Carolina 12
Indianapolis 35, N.Y. Giants 0

Chicago 21, San Francisco 20
L.A. Rams 30, Arizona 6
