    AFC:
    KC - The Chiefs AFC West Playoff berth

    Newton out the rest of the year with a bad shoulder
    Josh Gordon stepping away from football to focus on mental health
    Pharoh Cooper claimed by Cards off waivers from Rams

    Saturday Games;

    Washington @ Tennessee: I give the edge to Tenn at home, but this could be a coinflip if there are some mistakes by the home team. 24-13 Titans.
    Baltimore @ LA Chargers: Chargers are a hard team to beat right now. I don't know if Lamar Jackson can be a big enough threat to win this game. Chargers 20-10

    Sunday Morning Games;

    Cincy @ Cleveland: I am going to say Cleveland wins round 2 vs the Bengals. They are at home and Baker is playing well. 28-13 Cleveland.
    Tampa Bay @ Dallas: Dallas needs to close out a few more games to pick up steam and roll into the playoffs. TB is very iffy sometimes they show up, smoetimes they don't. They have to have a huge game on offense to put up enough points to beat Dallas. I don't see it happening. 34-20 Dallas
    Minn @ Detroit: Vikings on paper have the advantage and I will say it will be close. 21-20 Vikings.
    NY Giants @ Indy: Indy is hot right now, and a team that is picking up steam going into the playoffs. Luck will continue to play well. 31-14 Indy
    Jacksonville @ Miami: Jacksonville has had a tough year, and will struggle vs Miami. I see the Dolphins coming out on top 24-13
    Buffalo @ NE: Gordon may be gone, but NE still has weapons to win. Pats 21-10
    GB @ NY Jets: I give Rodgers the upper hand vs the Jets. Darnold looked good last game, but GB will find a way to win. 24-21 GB
    Houston @ Philly: Can Foles work magic? Houston is tough with their defense but anything is possible. I give the edge to Houston. 24-14 Texans.
    ATL @ Carolina: Cam is out which could be trouble for Carolina. Matt Ryan may come out with a W on the road. 28-21 Falcons



    Sunday Afternoon:

    LA Rams @ Arizona: Rams will put up a lot of offense on the cardinals. Expect Gurley to run strong. 34-10 Rams
    Chicago @ SF: Chicago's Defense way too much for SF 24-10 Chicago
    Pittsburgh @ NO: This will be a good game. Conner should be back for Pittsburgh, and if they can control the line of scrimmage and keep Brees off the field they have a chance. NO at home will put up points. Ben will have to do the same. 31-28 Saints

    SNF:

    KC @ Seattle: I would not rule out Settle at home and in December. I see KC Putting up points, but Russell will have to make magic happen. KC 31-24

    MNF:

    Denver @ Oakland: This could be close as both teams are playing poor. It won't be a high scoring game, but will be close. 17-14 Denver

    We are lucky the Ravens lost to give us hope for the playoffs. Either way Conner will be back next week, Ben should be fine with the slight rib injury, but we just have to regroup and push forward with a tough final stretch.
    Is Mike Tomlin still not at fault for the fake punt call that ultimately cost them the game and quite possibly a playoff spot?

    Week 17

    Sunday Morning:
    Miami @ Buffalo: Buffalo has struggled, and Miami is 1-6 on the road. This could go either way. 24-17 Dolphins.
    Detroit @ GB: I see Rodgers ending the season on a high note in front of his home town fans. 28-14 Packers
    NY @ NE: Brady will be too much for the Jets who have struggled all year. 35-14 Pats
    Carolina @ NO: Brees and company will finish off the season 14-2 and getting ready or a bye week in the playoffs. 38-14 Saints
    Dallas @ NY: The giants can have hope if they keep Dak and Zeke off the field. With OBJ Out for the giants it will be a daunting task. 28-17 Cowboys
    ATL @ TB: There could be fireworks here. Expect Julio Jones to have a good game. 35-21 Falcons
    JAX @ Houston: Houston has already secured their playoff berth, and they will keep rolling over JAX. 27-10 Texans

    Sunday Afternoon:
    LA @ Denver: Rivers gets back on track vs a struggling Denver team. 27-10 Chargers
    Oakland @ KC: Mahomes will end the season and add extra Yards/TD's to try and seal the MVP. 38-17 Chiefs.
    SF @ LA: Rams will be too strong on the ground and through the air. SF will have a hard time stopping the pass rush. 24-10 Rams
    Chicago @ Minn: Minnesota needs either a victory or an Eagles loss to ensure a playoff spot. Bears 17-10
    Cincy @ Pitt: Pitt needs a W and the browns to beat the Ravens to get into the playoffs. Cincy has not looked good the second half of the year. 31-13 Steelers
    Arizona @ Seattle: Seattle is too good at home in December. 34-10 Seattle
    Cleveland @ Baltimore: Do not be surprised if Baker pulls an upset. Could the browns get a winning record? They face a very good defense and Lamar Jackson playing well. 13-10 Browns

    SNF:
    Indy @ Tenn: -- Winner gets in for the playoffs. Luck continues to play hot and leads the Colts in a close one. 24-21 Colts

    2 Fumbles on the last 2 possessions. That was far more costly then the punt. You can't turn the ball over and expect to win

    How Mike Tomlin still has a job is incomprehensible. His lockerroom is in shambles. Losses in 4 out of the last 6 I believe and to the Raiders and Dolphins no less. Blows a 2 td lead to the Chargers. Loses to the Jaguars in the divisional game after dominating the regular season. Stop me please if you've heard this before. Art Rooney is rolling in his grave. I leave you all with a Happy New Year. I'm done ranting.

    Saturday:

    Colts @ Texans: I am all aboard the Andrew Luck train. One of the best offensive lines in the league, and they protect him very well. Watson and Houston struggle to protect the QB, which could be an issue with sacks or turnovers. I think it will be close, but Luck and Indy are streaking. 24-20 Indy

    Seattle @ Dallas: This is a coinflip. Seattle late in the year is when they bloom, and Dallas either is great or subpar depending on what team shows up. Garrett does not have a great track record in or getting to the playoffs, so this could go either way. I am picking Seahawks 20-14

    Sunday:

    Chargers @ Baltimore: Lamar Jackson is hot as a starter since taking over in Baltimore, and their defense is a huge asset to the late push the Ravens have made. Rivers and the Chargers are strong, but Baltimore at home and a top-tier defense gives them a close and hard earned victory. 17-14 Ravens

    Philly @ Chicago: As much as I love Nick Foles and how he continues to win I do not think he can surpass the bears defense on the road. The bears will put up enough points and keep Philly off the field to secure a victory. 21-17 Bears

    Saturday:

    Colts @ KC: The colts have some questionable players in their secondary with Malik Hooker and Mike Mitchell unsure if they will play. They will need all the defense they can muster to stop Mahomes. Luck and Colts are hot, their offensive line is protecting him well, and the KC defense will have to pressure luck to win. I could see Indy pulling the upset if KC makes mistakes, but at home they will be favored. Cheifs 28-20

    Dallas & LA Rams: I have the Rams in this one. Dallas is so up and down, and if they make any mistakes vs LA it could cost them. Cowboys also doesn't have a great track record in the post season. If Zeke and company can keep the rams off the field that is their only chance on top of making them turn the ball over. The rams will be tested, but they also have a lot of firepower on offense. Rams 27-17


    Sunday:

    LA @ New England: This will be closer then many people will believe. I see this coming down to Tom Brady doing what he does best and winning a close one. It is very hard to win in New England in the playoffs. 24-21 New England

    Philly @ New Orleans: Does anyone remember the hurting NO Put on Philly earlier in the season? I think Foles and his luck runs out here. The saints are just too much on offense, and coming off a bye they will be ready. Saints 31-21

    AFC:
    Patriots @ Kansas City

    There should be a wintry mix forecast for this game. This could impact the high powered KC Offense. Brady and the Pats run a spread with a lot of short passes and will try and run all over you to keep Mahomes off the field. This will be a good game, but with vicious weather I give the edge to the Pats. I don't think (again think key word) that KC will be as high powered if weather is a factor. This will be close 23-20 Patriots.

    NFC:
    LA Rams @ New Orleans

    Rams will look to revenge their 45-35 loss earlier in the year to the saints. The Rams D Line is vicious, but if Brees and the saints can establish the run game it will set up play action and some issues with the Rams Secondary. The Rams will want to run the ball and keep NO off the field. If McVay sees Brees rolling down the clock and keeping Gurley/Anderson off the field NO will win. Rams win if Saints make a late mistake, but besides that it will be close. Expect firepower and a lot of points going up
    42-35 Saints
