NFL expert picks for Week 16 are starting to come in now. On Tuesday (Dec. 17) the CBS experts picked the Week 16 NFL games, revealing which teams they feel will continue playing well as the postseason approaches. According to that report, there are actually quite a few unanimous selections from their board this time around.

With eight analysts selecting, these CBS employees unanimously predict the San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos, and St. Louis Rams will come out on the winning end. It might be surprising to some fans that there aren't more games in this list, but Jason La Canfora has gone against the grain with some selections. He is the one guy there who feels the Minnesota Vikings will beat the Cincinnati Bengals on the road and that the Washington Redskins will beat the Dallas Cowboys. It's worth noting that La Canfora is only 128-95-1 in his predictions this year.

Five match-ups are very close in the Week 16 NFL expert picks from CBS. They predict by 5-3 votes that the Philadelphia Eagles will beat the Chicago Bears and that the Green Bay Packers will beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. By that same margin they also predict that the Tennessee Titans will beat the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins will beat the Buffalo Bills. The panel is split on the New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens game, though, so that one could be up to the fans to decide.

In the final match-ups, the analysts have the Carolina Panthers over the New Orleans Saints, the Kansas City Chiefs over the Indianapolis Colts, and the New York Jets over the Cleveland Browns. There is no Thursday night game this week, but the Monday night game (Dec. 23) is the Atlanta Falcons vs. San Francisco 49ers.
