My week 17 nfl picks game by game win loss predictions.
Jets vs Bills
The Bills' top-ranked running game must gain ground against aJets front that has allowed the fewest rushing yards in the NFL. LeSean McCoy was the best player on the field when the Bills beat the Jets in Week 10. However, with nothing to play for, it's doubtful Rex Ryan will start him with his knee injury. Thus, Mike Gillislee and Karlos Williams, both of whom have had their moments this season, must produce against arguably the league's premier group up front.
Eagles @ Giants
The Eagles versus an emotional uprising. Odell Beckham, Jr. is back. Speculation regarding Tom Coughlin's future will hang in the air. Will the Giants do the opposite of what theEagles seemed to do this season -- that is, play for their coach? While we're at it, how will Philly's players respond under interim coach Pat Shurmur, with Chip Kelly now gone?
Patriots vs Dolphins
The Dolphins don't have aDarrelle Revis to man on Rob Gronkowski. Win here and the Patriots will secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs
Buccaneers @ Panthers
he Panthers' passing "attack" looked certifiably anemic in last week's loss in Atlanta. Cam Newton and Co. produced all of 113 net passing yards. On the offense's final snap, protection broke down, leading to Newton being stripped. On that subject, how much does Shula want Newton carrying the ball?
Saints @ Falcons
Atlanta's Julio Jones and Roddy White versus New Orleans' Delvin Breaux andBrandon Browner.
Ravens @ Bengals
Which young, inexperienced quarterback will blink first? Cincinnati's AJ McCarronfared admirably Monday night, The Bengals can earn a first-round bye with a win over the Ravens and aBroncos loss to the Chargers.
Steelers @ Browns
With Johnny Manziel (concussion) having been ruled out, theBrowns turn again to Davis, who gets to round out his AFC North dance card, which already includes appearances in losses to the Ravens and Bengals.
Jaguars @ Texans
The Texans' DBs have performed well of late, but you can't ignore what Robinson and Hurns are doing
Titans @ Colts
If Indy wins, the Texans lose, the Falcons beat the Saints, the Bills beat theJets, the Smurfs beat Gargamel, the Dolphins beat the Patriots, the Ravens beat the Bengals, He-Man beats Man-e-Faces, the Broncos beat the Chargers, the Steelers beat the Browns, Keith Richards beats aging and the Raiders beat the Chiefs ... then the Colts will taste the postseason.
Raiders @ Cheifs
Derek Carr has only been sacked 25 times this season, but a season-high four of those came in the 34-20 loss to Kansas Cityback in Week 13. The Broncos sacked Carr that many times in Oakland this season as well, in another Raiders loss. In Oakland's seven wins, Carr has been sacked only nine times
Redskins @ Cowboys
Washington cannot move from the cleanup spot in the NFC playoff tournament. They will host the No. 5 seed (potentially the Seahawks) no matter what. Will the Cowboys show up against their NFC East rivals with only the 2016 draft order on the line?
Lions @ Bears
Can Matthew Stafford keep up his vastly improved play? The Lions quarterback will need time, and he'll need a ground game that doesn't average three yards and a cloud of mud. Detroit's last six games: a much better 4.2 yards per rush.
Vikings @ Packers
Can James Jones, Davante Adams or Randall Cobb provide Aaron Rodgers any windows to throw into? If you watched the Packers' blowout loss to Arizona last week, you probably noticed much of the Cardinals' pressure came with Rodgers holding the ball. Packers wideouts were getting nowhere fast.
Chargers @ Broncos
You know Denver defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will dial up pressure on Philip Rivers. Careful, as Rivers isn't exactly AJ McCarron. The veteran Chargers quarterback has posted a 100.8 passer rating, with nine touchdowns and two interceptions, versus the blitz this season
Seahawks @ Cardinals
Arizona can secure home-field throughout the playoffs with a win over theSeahawks and a Panthers loss. The Seahawks aren't really playing for anything. At best, they can take the fifth seed. They'll be traveling to either Washington, Green Bay or Minnesota
Rams @ 49ers
Case Keenum and the Rams' passing game versus the 49ers' secondary. St. Louis has received better than expected play from the former Texans backup.
