NFL Week 16 Free Pick: Take the Jets. According to latest NFL trends, the Chargers are just 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 games against the Jets and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf. New York has won and covered in the last two meetings with San Diego and the fact that the Jets finally benched Mark Sanchez and inserted Greg McElroy at quarterback means this team is desperate. Rex Ryan could still have his job so he will be coaching this game like it’s the Super Bowl while it seems the Chargers have called it a season now that Norv Turner is expected to be fired in a few weeks. It won’t be much of a scoring contest, but look for the Jets to make enough plays to win and cover.
