Last week of the regular season. Looking to go out on top.
It's hard to believe but Week 17 is already here. I wanted to send a special thanks to all of you who have read my points this season. It has been a rough season for picking and not too upset that the misery will be ending. Week 16 ended up 10-6 which made my cumulative record 153-87. Week 17 is tough to pick, mainly because you don't know how long people will play. Here goes nothing.
Cincinnati 21 Baltimore 17
Just a gut feeling the Bengals will sneak into the playoffs with a win over the Ravens.
New England 28 Buffalo 14
Patriots should still roll no matter how long Brady plays.
New Orleans 27 Carolina 21
The fact that the Saints could still get a bye is reason enough for Brees to play and thus beat the Panthers.
Minnesota 21 Chicago 14
It just kills me to make this pick, but the Bears are done and really have nothing to play for. The Vikings have had nothing to play for since October, and are playing for jobs for next year.
NY Giants 24 Dallas 17
Game of the week. Winner makes it loser goes home. I like the Giants in a close one.
Jacksonville 21 Indianapolis 20
Just have a gut feeling the Colts won't win three in a row. I like the Jaguars in a close one.
Miami 21 NY Jets 13
Jets have mailed it in while the Dolphins have been playing better. I like Miami at home.
Pittsburgh 24 Cleveland 14
Huge game for the Steelers and they should get it done against the Browns.
San Francisco 21 St Louis Rams 7
Big game for the Niners with a chance to earn a bye. Rams can't wait for season to be over.
Atlanta 20 Tampa Bay 10
The Falcons could play all their backups and still win this week. The Buccaneers ended their season weeks ago.
Houston 21 Tennessee 17
Texans want to go into the playoffs with a win and I think they should against the Titans.
Philadelphia 21 Washington 10
Eagles have started playing well way too late in the season. Redskins are ready to pack up and call it a season.
Denver 21 Kansas City 13
Must win for the Broncos and I think they'll get it done against the Chiefs who have nothing left to play but spoiler.
Oakland 20 San Diego 14
Raiders need a win and another disappointing season for the Chargers.
Arizona 17 Seattle 16
Cardinals play pretty well at home and I think they'll end this season with a win.
Green Bay 21 Detroit 16
This game will feature tons of backups. I'll take the Packers at home.
