Week 17 NFL Predictions!

30 Dec

Sorry late, final week!!!

Sunday, December 30th
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons 1:00 PM
Andrew – Tampa Bay. This is a weird pick…. Based on *JOSH FREEMAN’S EIGHT INTERCEPTIONS IN THE LAST TWO GAMES* (loud enough for him to hear),  I would never pick the Buccaneers at Atlanta… however, rumor has it Atlanta will be resting some key players as they head into the playoffs. Can’t blame them, but it makes this a super tough game to pick.
Greg – Atlanta

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills 1:00 PM
Andrew – Buffalo. I have to go with the team at home, regardless of how poor they might play. The only consolation is that the Jets quarterback situation is a bigger joke than John Beck was last year for the Redskins.
Greg – New York jets

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals 1:00 PM
Andrew – Baltimore. Tough call for me, but I do think Baltimore is the more complete team when healthy… and they are just now getting healthy on defense… could be dangerous for the playoffs.
Greg – Cincinnati

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions 1:00 PM
Andrew – Chicago. Another tough call for me… the Bears offensive line will get torn up by the Lion’s dline/linebackers, however, I do think the Lions secondary will struggle to cover number 1 receiver Brandon Marshall, and if he gets enough room to play, it could be all over for the Lions. Also, if the Bears defense plays like they did last week, it should be a low scoring affair as well. 
Greg – Chicago

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans 1:00 PM
Andrew – Jacksonville. I don’t particularly care for either of these teams, however, I do think the Jaguars defense will keep them in this. If either team can put up more than 14, they’ll surely win.  
Greg – Tennessee

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts 1:00 PM
Andrew – Houston. It seemed like Houston didn’t have much to play for last game, but if they drop this one they’ll miss out out on home field advantage throughout the playoffs (assuming Broncos win), so gotta go with the team that has more to play for here.
Greg – Indianapolis

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints 1:00 PM
Andrew –  Carolina. Had the Panthers not lost to the Chiefs they would be on a 5 game win streak right now… crazy to think about when they were 2-7. Either way, they’re playing pretty well right now, and I think they’ll end the season strong, only to start over again next year. Must be fun to be a Panthers fan!
Greg – Carolina

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants 1:00 PM
Andrew – New York Giants. Oh how the mighty have fallen…. I’d hate to be Tom Coughlin if they drop this game. I don’t think he’ll lose his job like so many fans will wish, but they will be some pretty creative death threats. Both teams are banged up, but I’d be shocked if the Giants lose this game at home.
Greg – New York Giants

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers 1:00 PM
Andrew – Pittsburgh. Kind of hard to pick the Steelers in this one, given they’ve dropped their last three, and 5 of the last six, including one to the Browns already. I am however, not entirely sure what is happening for the Browns at QB, and with that confusion, am leaning on the veteran team to end their season with a win (although, could this be the end of the dominate Steelers as we know it?).
Greg – Pittsburgh

Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers 4:25 PM
Andrew – San Diego. With Carson Palmer out, Oakland is left to Matt Leinart and/or Terrelle Pryor. Now, me personally, I’d go with Terrelle Pryor… because everyone already knows what Leinart can and cannot do. I’d like to see Pryor get his chance for once. Either way, Oakland has way too many problems than just at quarterback, and I feel like San Diego will take advantage of their weak defense.
Greg – San Diego

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers 4:25 PM
Andrew – San Francisco. Crazy to think that the NFC West is still up for grabs. The 49ers are lucky to end it with the Cardinals here.
Greg – San Francisco

St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks 4:25 PM
Andrew – Seattle. I should have never bet against the Seahawks at home. I did and paid the price for it. I am sorry oh great wise Pete Carroll.
Greg – Seattle

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings 4:25 PM
Andrew – Minnesota. The Vikings are fighting for their playoff lives, but I can only hope that Green Bay beats them, however that won’t be easy in Minnesota. I’m thinking a close game, but if Adrian Peterson continues having the success he has had in recent games, then they can keep the ball out of Aaron Rodger’s hands and thus the points off the board for Green Bay.
Greg – Minnesota

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots 4:25 PM
Andrew – New England. Tough game for the Dolphins up in New England, oh sure the Dolphins always play them “tough” but *dismissive hand motion.*
Greg – New England

Kansas City at Denver Broncos 4:25 PM
Andrew – Denver. I imagine that even if Denver doesn’t come out of the locker room following the half, they’ll still win this game. Sorry Kansas… that’s what you are. 
Greg – Denver

Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins 8:20 PM
Andrew – Washington. It all comes down to this. I’m hoping that the Bears and Vikings both lose, so this game will be a lot less stressful for me, but that doesn’t change the fact that I still think the Redskins can control this game at home. 
Greg – Washington
