Week 15 was an appetizing slate of NFL football games, but Week 16 will likely pale in comparison.
That’s if we even get to the weekend.
Some feel end of days is near — choosing to believe the Mayan calendar is telling us that the world will end on Friday. If that is the case, what a bummer. But then again, it’s only fitting that the Arizona Cardinals won a game in the final week of football this world will see.
Of course, NESN.com editors Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle aren’t betting on the end of the world. They expect to make it through to see football on Sunday. That didn’t stop them from discussing the potential apocalypse in this week’s podcast, though. They touched on that as well as some football in the latest NESN.com NFL picks podcast.
Check that out at the bottom of the page, and see their picks below.

It seems that we’ll never know what Darnell Dockett was fined for ten days ago as both alleged spitter and spittee have denied that Dockett spat in teammate Kerry Rhodes’ face during their loss to the New York Jets but it is clear that the defensive ‘leader’ did something that didn’t sit well with his organization. According to Dockett's twitter feed this evening the...
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson certainly doesn’t lack confidence. When he was asked if he’s the best cornerback in the NFL, he didn’t hesitate in saying yes.
”I believe so,” said Peterson, per the AP.. ”I believe I’m playing at a top level right now. Week in and week out, I’m given the opposing team’s No. 1 receiver and I believe I’m handling...
Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson was kinda baited on this one, and it was certainly hook, line and sinker in his repsonse.
When asked if he believes he's the best cornerback in the NFL, Peterson replied, "I believe so", according to the Associated Press, via Yahoo Sports.

Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes says teammate Patrick Peterson will never catch up with his confidence.
But, as Rhodes says, ''it works for him.''
In his second NFL season, Peterson proclaims himself already the best cornerback in the NFL. He says it's all about confidence, not cockiness, and his play seems to be backing up his talk.
Peterson has seven interceptions...
Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall will face one of his toughest challenges of the season this week against the Arizona Cardinals, squaring off against cornerback Patrick Peterson.
In this week's edition we talked about Corey Wootton's progress, the Bears playoff scenarios and Mike Jurecki the Cardinals Insider for XtraSports910 radio in Phoenix joined us to talk about the Arizona Cardinals.
Back and forth on how I would have predicted the Bears to match up with the Cardinals this season. At first I saw the Cardinals as a stiff test on the road, this after they started the season 4-0.
