Week 16 in the NFL was another great one as we saw a few upsets that changed the NFL playoff picture. The biggest win in Kansas City is of course the Bengals beating the Chargers which helped the Chiefs secure the AFC West. Should the Chiefs victory over the Titans have been a candidate? I think so (but it's not).

Here are your candidates for the NFL victory of the week:

Bears over Jets: This was a big win for the Bears as they head into the postseason and it was surprising a shootout, 38-34, with two of the best defenses in the league. The Bears wrapped up a first round bye with the Eagles loss on Tuesday night.

Bengals over Chargers: Do I have to say anything else? This is the one Chiefs fans are voting for. Thank you, Cincy.

Packers over Giants: The Packers saved their playoff lives with this victory and, with the Eagles loss last night, the Bears don't have anything to play for next week against the Packers, meaning the Giants playoff dreams are in trouble.

Rams over 49ers: Eh. The NFC West....

Saints over Falcons: This was an outstanding Monday Night Football game and one that showed the Falcons are beatable. Atlanta can still secure a first round bye with a win against the Panthers next week.

Vikings over Eagles: What happened to Michael Vick? He didn't do anything amazing which means the Eagles didn't win.
