Week 16 of the 2023 NFL season is here! Our Atlanta Falcons sunk to new lows last week, blowing a game to the lowly Carolina Panthers and making another quarterback change. I have a feeling that’s not the only change in store for the Falcons...

What will Week 16 have for us? Things kick off with tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams.

Let’s get right to tonight’s pick, which I’ll be making on a straight moneyline (aka picking the winner) basis. I’ll still provide the information on the spread and over/under, for those interested. At the bottom, I’ll show the rest of the staff’s picks for the game.

All odds are taken from DraftKings Sportsbook and are subject to change. See the current odds here.

Thursday Night Football: New Orleans Saints (7-7) at Los Angeles Rams (7-7)

The pick: Rams (-218)

Spread: Rams -4 | Over/Under: 45.5 | Moneyline: Rams -218, Saints +180

If you’d asked me two weeks ago, I would’ve told you this week’s TNF game would be pivotal for the Falcons’ playoff chances. Now, we’re just rooting to watch the Saints lose. The Rams are the superior offense and New Orleans simply isn’t the same on the road, so I think Los Angeles takes care of business.
