Pick Em: Week 17 NFL Matchups

Tomorrow marks the start of week 17 in the NFL and the playoff race is heating up for some teams. So in honor of week 17, here’s our writing staff’s prediction for this week’s NFL games.

Sunday Games

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets


Aaron: Bills by 3
Tanner: Jets by 7

Game Notes: After beating the Patriots last week, the Jets playoff fate lies in there own hands and turf.

New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins


Aaron: Patriots by 4
Tanner: Patriots by 3

Game Notes: We think this is going to be a close one as we are still looking for that breakout offense to come out.

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons


Aaron: Saints by 14
Tanner: Saints by 10

Game Notes: The Saints should dispose of the bad Falcons but it will be left to Sean Payton once again to deliver the blow.

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears


Aaron: Lions by 3
Tanner: Bears by 3

Game Notes: Two teams after draft picks need to lose to one up each other at this point.

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants


Aaron: Giants by 10
Tanner: Giants by 7

Game Notes: Tom Coughlin has had his seat warmer on in New York city but some speculate that there might be a new sheriff in town next year after 12 years under Coughlin.


Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys

Aaron: Redskins by 17
Tanner: Redskins by 7
Game Notes: We don’t even predict this to be a game.

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts

Aaron: Colts by 1
Tanner: Colts by 7
