NFL Week 16  Free Picks – A Truly Difficult Sunday of Handicapping

Nick Foles took Carson Wentz’s place under center for the Philadelphia Eagles and promptly led the defending champs to a big upset win over the Los Angeles Rams in what would be a shocker if we hadn't also seen this same backup quarterback become a Super Bowl MVP.
