NFL Week 17 Predictions

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots (Sunday 1pm)
A win here clinches the number one seed in the AFC Playoffs.  Plus, the Patriots won’t forget that stunning loss in Buffalo earlier this season.
Winner: Patriots

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (Sunday 1pm)
Wouldn’t the Dolphins just love to be the ones to knock the Jets completely out of the AFC Playoff Chase?  Jets need a win and lots of help to continue playing.
Winner: Dolphins

San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams (Sunday 1pm)
The 49ers still have a shot at a first round bye so expect them to play just hard enough to get it.
Winner: 49ers

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (Sunday 1pm)
Will the Saints be more motivated by a)trying to get a first round bye b)adding the Drew Brees’ passing record c)stopping Cam Newton d)all of the above?
Winner: Saints

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday 1pm)
The nightmarish season for both teams finally comes to an end.
Winner: Vikings

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (Sunday 1pm)
The Packers look like they will rest most of the starters which is good news if the Lions want to wrap up the number five seed in the NFC Playoffs.
Winner: Lions

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles (Sunday 1pm)
Oh what might have been for the Dream Team!
Winner: Eagles

Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)
This one is all about wrapping up the number one seed for the Colts.
Winner: Jaguars

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans (Sunday 1pm)
If the Titans win here and get some help elsewhere, this could be your first round AFC Playoff game next weekend.
Winner: Titans

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals (Sunday 4:15pm)
It’s simple for both the Ravens and Bengals – win and good things await them. The Ravens win the AFC North and a first round bye with a victory while the Bengals clinch a wild card spot by beating Baltimore.
Winner: Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (Sunday 4:15pm)
The Steelers should win the game, but will need to Ravens to lose in order to win the AFC North and get a first round bye. The more immediate question is will they play QB Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) in order to get it.
Winner: Steelers

Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos (Sunday 4:15pm)
How ironic – QB Kyle Orton, just weeks removed from being cut by the Broncos in favor of Tim Tebow, can now come in to town and stop Denver from making the playoffs.
Winner: Broncos

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders (Sunday 4:15pm)
The Raiders can somehow win the AFC West with a victory and a Broncos loss.
Winner: Raiders

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals (Sunday 4:15pm)
Two teams who are playing better but just not good enough to continue on.
Winner: Cardinals

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (Sunday 4:15pm)
How bad have the Bucs fallen? They’ll end the season losing ten in a row. OUCH!
Winner: Falcons

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (Sunday 8:20pm)
Winner gets the NFC East Title and the loser goes home. It’s almost like taking the lesser of two evils with these two flawed teams.
Winner: Giants

Last Week: 12-4
Season: 157-83
