Welcome to Week 16 of the 2023 NFL regular season on a Saturday!

A game with major AFC playoff implications and significant impact to the Denver Broncos fight for its first postseason appearance since 2015 will take place today between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers. With three games to go, it is difficult to project rooting interests here but the obvious one would be to pull for the Steelers to drop to 7-8 to give Denver a leg up on them heading into Sunday. However, a Steelers win would also knock the Bengals down to 8-7 which is fine too ... maybe. Again, its too early to tell how these tiebreakers will play out over the next three weeks.

Kickoff is set for Saturday, Dec. 23, 2023 at 2:30 p.m. Mile High time at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and will air on NBC.

My Prediction

In partnership with DraftKings Sportsbook, we will get to do a lot of picks this year. Straight-up, against the spread, and over/under picks. While I went with the Bengals to win here, I am seriously considering changing my pick last minute to the Steelers. My gut is screaming at me to do this, but my gut has also led me to a last place spot in the Mile High Report pick’em challenge we do every Thursday. As of writing, I’m ignoring me gut but if you see the Steelers below then you’ll know my gut ultimately won out.
