The holiday season was extra joyous for Luke Walton, Heather Mitts and Holly Robinson Peete, who each went 12-4 for 13 points with Holly the only celeb with the foresight to choose the Rams over the Eagles.

But Week 16 proved not so kind for Mama McNabb. After trailing pick'em leader James Blake by three points in the overall standings, Wilma stuck with her usual lock of the week, the Eagles, and it cost her as she ended up with a season-low eight points.

It'll be hard to catch the tennis star, who has pulled ahead by a whopping seven points and has even picked better than our own ESPN analysts, Mike Golic and Sean Salisbury.

But with one more week left in the regular season, with teams resting their starters, anything can happen.

Stay tuned to Week 17.
