NFL Week 17 Pick’em Results *Updated*

NFL Week 17 Picks

The conclusion of the NFL regular season is finally here. Week 17 is usually wacky, so anything can happen. For a rare change, the guys agreed across the board on several games. Take it to the bank: the Lions, Colts, Vikings, Pats, Skins, and Seahawks are all locks. Furthermore, there are five games that four out of the five contributors agree on. TyGuy clearly doesn’t want to see the Browns go 0-16. For a guy that has profusely cussed out the city of Cleveland on several occasions, he somehow has sympathy for Hue Jackson and the Dawg Pound. In the other four one-against-four games, Johnny Gorgonzola is attempting a hail mary with no time on the clock. Rongy has the Titans, Raiders, Bucs, and Bengals all in upsets. Who wants to make some bets? NFL Week 17 Picks here:  

*NOTE*

In an attempt to redeem his disappointing 6-8 effort, Panda was given an opportunity get his record above five hundred so he could be eligible for the guest contributor playoffs.

NFL Week 17 Power Rankings

NFL Week 17 Power Rankings

There’s just one week left in the regular season and the three playoff spots are still up for grabs. In the NFC the Falcons and Seahawks are battling for the final playoff spot and a likely date with the Rams in LA in the Wild Card Round. Minnesota, New Orleans, and Carolina have all clinched playoff berths but are still jostling for position. The AFC picture is a little more crowded. Baltimore and Tennessee have the inside track on the 5th and 6th seeds, respectively. However, both the Chargers and Bills are in a position to capitalize should either falter. NFL Week 17 Power Rankings:

  • Week 17: vs JAX
  • Quote: “I would expect a full game plan, just like a game they have to win. Coming off a loss, I am sure they don’t want to go into the playoffs with another one, so I would expect we’re going to get the best of them, knowing Doug Marrone and Tom (Coughlin). – Titans HC Mike Mularkey on their Week 17 matchup with the Jags.

12. Baltimore Ravens (9-6) [LW: 10]

  • Week 16: W 19-10 vs OAK
  • Week 17: vs DAL
  • Quote: “We found a way to win. That’s the bottom line. We found a way to win. I’d love to win 40-3 or 34-28, but sometimes you’re going to be in these games. We got to be hard on ourselves as coaches and players looking at this film, moving forward, and get things fixed offensively. I thought the defense played really, really well. They kept us in the football game, special teams. [It was a] team effort, though. [We] found a way. [We are] sitting here today 13-2. Everybody’s got to come through here now. That’s the exciting part.” – Eagle HC Doug Pederson

  • Week 16: W 23-13 vs ATL
  • Week 17: @ TB
  • Quote: “Obviously, this was an important game. I thought our defense was magnificent. When I say that, with the injuries we have had, there are six or seven starters out of that defensive group. I thought they played well. I thought it was the difference in the game. They handled the short field when there was one and put us in good field position. They came up with some key stops down there on the one-yard line. Offensively, we did enough. Same thing in the kicking game. I think the kicking game went well. I thought Tommylee (Lewis) played well just in some (of) the coverage opportunities, punt-wise, and protecting field position. Good team win.” – Saints HC Sean Payton

  • Playoff Scenarios
    • Clinch AFC 1st Seed
      • Win + NE loss

1. New England Patriots (12-3) [LW: 1]

  • Week 16: W 37-16 vs BUF
  • Week 17: vs NYJ
  • Quote: “That catch that he made on the touchdown was — you see a lot of good catches in this league and we’ve seen Rob make a lot of great catches. That ball, when it leaves Tom’s hands you think it is going out of bounds, it is going to land over by the wall somewhere. That was a great catch, and it was thrown obviously in a way where only Rob could get it, and Rob got it probably only as Rob could get it.” – Pats HC Bill Belichick on Rob Gronkowski’s one-handed TD grab Sunday.
