NFL Picks: Week 17

The last week of the NFl regular season is weird just because of the sheer number of matchups involving one or two teams who have nothing to play for, many of whom will be resting key guys for the playoffs. The only teams who have anything to play for other than general professionalism and losing out on a high draft pick are the Titans, Saints, Chargers, Steelers, Redskins, and Vikings. That's 6. Out of 32. That, to me, seems like a tough weekend to handicap. Yet Nick and I soldier on.

GIANTS (+13.5) vs Pats
Andy: (Remember what I wrote in that first paragraph? This is absolutely impossible). Giants.
Nick: Giants

BROWNS (-10) vs 49ers
Andy: Browns, because they have this retarded commitment to winning this useless game instead of doing what they should, which is resting banged-up guys for a possible playoff game. THIS GAME MEANS NOTHING. This is a week where I would pick against the Browns, and proudly, in respect for solid organizational philosophy.
Nick: Browns. Fire Romeo Crennel. (Really.)

EAGLES (-9) vs Buffaloes
Andy: Who cares? Eagles.
Nick: Bills

DOLPHINS (+3) vs Bengals
Andy: Bengals
Nick: Bengals

BUCS (+3) vs Panthers
Andy: Bucs
Nick: Bucs

BEARS (+1) vs Saints
Andy: Saints
Nick: Bears

TEXANS (-6.5) vs Jags
Andy: Jags (they'll have a lot of their best players out, but who the hell are JAX's best players?)
Nick: Jags

FALCONS (-1) vs Seahawks
Andy: Seahawks. Ditto, plus the Falcons are the definition of mailing it in right now.
Nick: Seahawks

PACKERS (-4) vs Lions
Andy: Pack. You really think the Lions will win Favre's potentially last regular-season game in Lambeau?
Nick: Packers

BRONCOS (+3) vs Vikings
Andy: Vikings
Nick: Vikings

REDSKINS (-9) vs Cowboys
Andy: Redskins
Nick: Skins

RAVENS (+3.5) vs Steelers
Andy: Steelers (this is my most confident choice of the week)
Nick: Steelers

RAIDERS (+9) vs Chargers
Andy: Chargers
Nick: Chargers (Lock of the week)

CARDINALS (-6) vs Rams
Andy: I would never, ever bet on this game. Rams.
Nick: Rams. I concur; if you bet this game, you have a problem.

JETS (-6.5) vs Chieves
Andy: Chieves
Nick: Kansas City Indians (How can the Jets give nearly 7 points?)

COLTS (+6.5) vs Titans
Andy: Colts, please, please win this game. PLEASE.
Nick: Colts. Did I ever mention how much I love QBs from Michigan?

Sorgi went to Wisconsin, no? Maybe I didn't catch your drift.
