NFL Week 16 Summary

NFL Week 16 Summary

The 2013 regular season will go down as the highest-scoring in NFL history, but the under totals dominated in Week 16 with 10 games finishing below the total.

The Broncos are on pace to set the single-season scoring record and even their game went under as Denver won 37-13 at Houston, with the Texans as 10-point dogs and a total of 53. Certain 2013 NFL MVP Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes to reach 51 on the season, breaking Tom Brady's 2007 NFL record of 50. Denver has scored 572 total points with one game to go, second to Brady's 2007 Patriots, who had 589 in going unbeaten during the regular season.

One of the many low-scoring games was Carolina's 17-13 home win over New Orleans, in which the total was 44.5 and the Panthers were 3.5-point favorites. Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly may have cemented the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award with 24 tackles -- the second-most in league history -- and an interception. 

The big upset of Week 16 was Arizona winning 17-10 in Seattle as an 8-point underdog (under 42.5 total). That ended the Seahawks' league-best 14-game winning streak. The Cardinals won despite QB Carson Palmer throwing four interceptions, but he hit Michael Floyd for the game-winning 31-yard touchdown pass with 2:13 left. Arizona's defense held Seattle to just 192 yards and seven three-and-outs.

The biggest underdog of Week 16 was Atlanta at +14 at San Francisco on Monday night in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game. It was also the final regular-season game ever at Candlestick Park. That stadium hosted 36 Monday night games, the most in the NFL. The Niners won the finale 34-24 (over 46).

The lowest-scoring game of Week 16 was Buffalo's 19-0 home victory over Miami; the Dolphins were 1-point dogs and the total was set at 42. The highest-scoring was Pittsburgh's 38-31 win in the snow at Green Bay. Overall, favorites were 10-5-1 against the spread for the week. The push was Tennessee at -4 beating Jacksonville 20-16.
