Welcome to the Christmas Eve edition of the Pick Six newsletter!So I ran into Santa last night and I have some good news: It appears every one of you made the nice list this year, so as a present from me to you, you're getting a newsletter today! Actually, you were going to get one no matter what, but I feel a lot better about writing it knowing that everyone made the nice list.We were all so good this year that the NFL is giving us two presents for Christmas in the form of two big games. The and will be starting the Christmas fun tomorrow with a game that kicks off at 4:30 p.m. ET (Fox). After that, the and will play in a nightcap that kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET (NFL Network).Since the games kick off in the late afternoon, that should give you plenty of time to do everything you need to do. For instance, I'm pretty sure my day is going to go something like this: Open presents, eat brunch, take a nap, drink some egg nog, take another nap, put together the complicated toys I got for my 20-month old that I didn't need to get because she would have been just as happy with an empty box, and then watch the games. Seriously, my 20-month-old daughter loves empty boxes. I cannot emphasize this enough.Alright, let's get to the rundown.Remember, if you're hanging out with family and/or friends this weekend, you should tell them all to sign up for the newsletter. To get them signed up, all you have to do is with them. Signing someone up makes a great holiday gift and that's mainly because it's free. Everyone loves free. 1. Today's show: Recapping Tenne see's wild win over the The got a Christmas miracle on Thursday night, and that miracle was that was able to come off injured reserve and play against the 49ers after mi sing the past three games with a chest injury. Thanks Lenny Dykstra Jersey to Brown, the Titans were able to overcome an ugly first half to beat the 49ers, 20-17.The only thing uglier than the Titans' first half was the Christmas pajamas I wore for today's podcast with Ryan Wilson and Will Brinson, where we thoroughly covered Tenne see's win. Here are a few key aspects of the game that we touched on:A.J. Brown and the Titans were unstoppable, especially on third down.After being out for more than a month with a chest injury, A.J. Brown finally returned to the field Thursday and it's a good thing he did, because he ended being the Titans' entire offense in the game. Brown caught 11 pa ses for 145 yards, and the most impre sive part is that eight of those receptions came on third down. According , Brown's eight catches on third down were the most by any player in the past 40 seasons. Overall, not only did Tenne see convert nine of 16 third downs, but eight of those came on third-and-7 or longer. The Titans also became the first team in the NFL this season to convert at least five third downs of 10 yards or longer (they converted six). Basically, the Titans were living on the edge and it ended up paying off. had a meltdown.After playing mostly mistake-free football for the past six weeks, Jimmy Garoppolo finally had a meltdown. The 49ers quarterback was off his game and he definitely picked a bad night to do that since the Titans have one of the best rushing defenses in the NFL. With Tenne see focused on the run, that meant the 49ers were going to need a big game from Garoppolo to win, but they didn't get it. The 49ers QB threw two interceptions, including one in the first quarter that came Marcus Stroman Jersey on a second-and-goal from Tenne see's eight. Garoppolo also mi sed a pa s to a wide open that should have been the easiest 40-yard TD pa s of his life, but instead it fell incomplete. If you want to see how wide open Juszczyk was, . basically provided the 49ers with their entire offense in this game, as he totaled 191 yards (159 receiving, 32 rushing).Playoff picture after Tenne see's win. Going into Thursday, it looked like the Titans were in danger of choking away the AFC South, but that doesn't feel like it's going to happen anymore thanks to their win. If the Colts lose on Christmas Day to the Cardinals, Tenne see will win the division. If the Colts win, the Titans' magic number is Jacob DeGrom Jersey still one, which means one Tenne see win or one Colts' lo s over the final two weeks would clinch things for the Titans. As for the 49ers, they're still in good shape, but they've definitely added some drama to the NFC wild-card race with their lo s. The 49ers will still be in the top-seven heading into Week 17 as long as the , and don't ALL win in Week 16.To listen to or watch . (You'll have to watch if you want to see my Christmas pajamas.) You can also . 2. Today's show Part II: Best bets for Week 16The best part about Friday -- besides the fact it's Friday -- is that you get two episodes of the podcast in your feed. After the recap of the 49ers-Titans game, Brinson politely asked me and Ryan Wilson to leave so that he could bring on R.J. White and Pete Prisco for a discu sion about their best bets for Week 16.I gladly left because it's Christmas Eve and I have way better things to do than hang out with Brinson all day.Anyway, the three guys spent nearly 60 minutes going over the best bets for every single game, and we're going to cover three of each person's picks below. Pete Prisco(1-2 last week in picks featured here) (+10) to cover against the Vikings (+3) to cover against the (+10) to cover against the Will Brinson (2-1 last week in picks featured here)Colts (+1) to cover against the Cardinals (-3) to cover against Saints (+1.5) to cover against the R.J.

NFL Week 16 picksThis is the final newsletter of the week, which means I feel morally obligated to cram as many picks as po sible into this space. I once crammed 112 ornaments on to a mini Christmas tree, so I know I'm good at cramming.With that in mind, we've got some Week 16 picks coming your way and those will be coming from Will Brinson, Tom Fornelli, Tyler Sullivan and Jordan Dajani, along with CBS Sports NFL insiders Jason La Canfora and .

For .Tyler Sullivan: Lions 24-21 over Falcons (Detroit covers +5.5). For .. 4. MVP Watch: and duking it out for the awardOnce the NFL season reaches Week 16, it's usually pretty clear who's going to win NFL MVP. However, that's definitely not the case this year. In one of the most wide-open races you'll ever see, there Michael Conforto Jersey are multiple players who definitely still have a shot to win the award.To help clear things up, we rounded up 12 CBSSports.com writers and had them vote on who they think will win the MVP. Each writer was allowed to put five players on their ballot and based on our voting, Aaron Rodgers is definitely the favorite to win the award. Here's a look at our top five along with their point total in the vote. (A player got five points for a first-place vote, four points for a second-place vote and so on.)1.

NFL Insider notes: Top head coaching candidates heading into 2022As things stand right now, there are definitely going to be at least two NFL teams ( , Raiders) who will be looking to hire a new coach this offseason, and there's a good chance that number is going to shoot up over the next four weeks. The Bears could move on from Matt Nagy, the could fire Joe Judge, and who knows, we might even see something crazy like Pete Carroll leaving Seattle.Under a new NFL rule, any team that already has a coaching opening can start interviewing candidates as soon as Tuesday, which means the Jaguars and Raiders can Jay Bruce Jersey start the hiring proce s early next week. With that in mind, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones decided to make a list of the best coaching candidates heading into this offseason. And I promise, not only did he make this list, but he checked it twice.
