Best of Week 16 of the NFL: Seattle-LA and Green Bay-Tennessee

Terez Paylor and Charles Robinson, senior NFL writers at Yahoo Sports, each select a Week 16 game that will stir us up on Monday.

Paylor’s Must See
Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks

This game will go a long way in determining the champion of NFC West. The Rams (9-5) are coming out of an embarrassing 23-20 loss to the New York Jets. They could still win the division by winning.

Seattle can capture the West simply by winning this game. And we also have the benefit of seeing a rematch between Seattle cyborg receiver DK Metcalf and $ 100 million Los Angeles cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who won the first fight in Rams’ victory a month ago, holding Metcalf to two receptions in 28 yards. If Seattle is going to win this time, it needs to involve more Metcalf.

It will be a blast to watch.

Robinson’s must-see
Tennessee Titans in Green Bay Packers

This is not just a game that makes a potential difference for two MVP candidates – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Titans ‘running back Derrick Henry – also sets the tone for both franchises’ playoffs.

With an impressive victory, the Packers can consolidate themselves as the clear NFC favorite in the Super Bowl, while the Titans can argue for being the most dangerous team alongside Kansas City entering the AFC playoff field. This should also tell us something about the vulnerabilities of both teams, with Green Bay’s running defense needing to make a statement and the Titans’ quick pass facing one of the two best defenders in the league at the moment.

This will be a playoff caliber game that is worth watching.
