Sadly, only two weeks remain in the NFL regular season, but at least there are a bunch of games to watch (or ignore) over the holidays. Panthers-Steelers (ignore) tonight, Cowboys-Cardinals (double-ignore) on Saturday, Vikings-Vick (watch) on Sunday night, and Saints-Falcons (definitely watch) on Monday. Keep reading as seven editors predict the outcomes of the aforementioned games, as well as the ones involving their favorite teams. In descending order by record, here are the editors' Week 16 picks...

<!--more-->nygbannerNAME: Joe La Puma, senior editorial strategist (32-12)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Pittsburgh, 24-14. I don't see the Steelers losing two in a row."

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Dallas, 35-28. I'm worried about this pick, luckily I can afford some L's."

4 P.M.) NEW YORK GIANTS @ GREEN BAY: "Giants, 21-10. After last week's debacle, we shall overcome."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Philadelphia, 24-10. Vikes have no shot."

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "New Orleans, 21-17. This will be close, but N.O. takes it."

billsNAME: Jason Sfetko, assistant art director (31-17)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Pittsburgh, 30-9. Do they even have to play this one?"

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Dallas, 31-14. Merry Christmas!"

1 P.M.) NEW ENGLAND @ BUFFALO: "New England, 23-16. I'm picking Buffalo, because I HATE the Patriots and I think they got exposed on Monday and have pretty much packed it in until the playoffs."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Philadelphia, 35-13. "

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "Atlanta, 27-21. Atlanta doesn't lose at home."

coltsNAME: Peter Rubin, executive editor (29-14)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Pittsburgh, 27-3. As in 27 to negative 3."

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Dallas, 28-14. Let's play for pride! Wait, no, too late."

4 P.M.) INDIANAPOLIS @ OAKLAND: "Indianapolis, 24-14. Peyton's reception at this thing is gonna be like John Mayer being the opening act at a GWAR concert. Does it matter, though? It does not, because AFC SOUTH DIVISION TITLES ARE OUR DESTINY."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Vickadelphia DeSeagles, 36-7. Which is the number that Tom Coughlin will be playing every week at the bodega after he gets shitcanned for last week's debacle."

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "Atlanta, 21-18. Wow, did I really just say that? I guess I did!"

redskinsNAME: Donnie Kwak, senior deputy editor (28-17)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Steelers, 28-3. Football on Thursday is about as necessary as Daniel Tosh's TV show. "

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Cardinals, 24-21. Football sucks ass on Saturday night, too."

1 P.M.) WASHINGTON @ JACKSONVILLE: "Jaguars, 30-17. McNabb throws ugly grounders; Sexy Rexy throws flaccid ducks. Let's see what John Beck can do."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Vick, 27-14. The Vikings should be banned from national TV in 2011."

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "Falcons, 35-31. Let us all hope that ATL doesn't make the Super Bowl. Please."

nygbannerNAME: Justin Monroe, senior staff writer (27-17)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Pittsburgh, 28-7. Troy Polamalu is apparently not playing. We'll miss his thickness. What?! His Samoan locks are a thing of beauty!"

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Dallas, 31-20. The way America's team is perennially overrated and falls short—this year, short of even the playoffs—makes me wonder if the Cowboys are actually Al-Qaeda's favorite team."

4 P.M.) NEW YORK GIANTS @ GREEN BAY: "New York Giants, 27-20. After the 'Meltdown at the Meadowlands,' I have a feeling the Giants D is gonna be hitting extra hard in that Wisconsin cold. Watch your wombs, Packers."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Philadelphia, 35-14. Word to Mike Vick, neither Tarvaris Jackson or Joe Webb is the future of quarterbacking, black or otherwise."

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "New Orleans, 35-34. Nawlins is gonna do the bird dirty. And I don't mean back-door entry with no phone call a day later."

raidersNAME: Jack Erwin, senior editor (26-22)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Steelers, 27-9. Man, Carolina is a weird franchise. NFC Championship appearance (and loss) their second year, Super Bowl appearance (and loss) before they were ten years old, and now it looks like they're heading for 2-14 to go with the 1-15 year they had in '01. I root for 'em when they do well, could care less when they don't. So I'll be doing family shit Thursday night (which means camped in front of the TV watching this bad game)."

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Cowboys, I actually like the off-Sunday football. This game sucks, but see above for where I'll be when it's on."

4 P.M.) INDIANAPOLIS @ OAKLAND: "Raiders, 27-21. Damn, I wish I could go to this game. For one, Indianans are notorious rubes (see what I did there, huh, huh?), and I could probably unload some of my stock. And two, the Nnamdi Asomugha-Reggie Wayne matchup is gonna be good (and we won't see a bit of it on TV). Raiders have the running attack that can give the ponies problems, plus something to play for, still, in Week 16, which is hella cool. Chiefs lose out, Chargers lose one, and the Raiders win out, and you're looking at your 2010 AFC West champs. Stranger things have happened."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Eagles, 41-6. Bet NBC wishes they'd flexed into the Raiders-Colts now. Dumbasses."

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "Saints, 31-17. This'll be a good one. Back on the couch with the in-laws and a bottle of wine or three."

49ersNAME: Gina Batlle, assistant photo editor (24-21)

TNF) CAROLINA @ PITTSBURGH: "Steelers, 27-13. Um, the Steelers defense is on point."

SATURDAY) DALLAS @ ARIZONA: "Cowboys, 24-13."

1 P.M.) SAN FRANCISCO @ ST. LOUIS: "49ers, 27-24. You already know."

SNF) MINNESOTA @ PHILADELPHIA: "Eagles, 35-10. Vick, anyone?"

MNF) NEW ORLEANS @ ATLANTA: "Saints, 23-17. The Saints are looking for that Wild Card spot. Maybe, just maybe."
