Week 17 Picks:
New York over Washington. War Eagle can't help his defense, unfortunately, which ranks 31st. Blech.
Jacksonville over Kansas City. Question: how, with Larry Johnson, does the Chiefs' rushing offense rank 20th? I don't get it. Anyway, the Jaguars are on fire right now; they shouldn't have too much of a problem in this one.
Minnesota over St. Louis. Question: how, with Chester Taylor, does the Vikings' rushing offense rank 1st? I don't get it. Anyway, the Rams suck total nuts right now; they should have loads of problems in this one.
Tampa Bay over Seattle. Pick'em game. I like the Buccaneers' rushing game in this one (don't ask why I'm so big on rushing games right now).
New England over Tennessee. Go Titans, but I just can't see them pulling this one off. New England is a force right now.
Chicago over Green Bay. The greatest quarterback ever won't be able to do much against the Bears' pass defense, which is ranked 1st. Sorry, Brett.
And the money game of the week:
Carolina over New Orleans. GO PANTHERS SAINTS BOOO YOU LOSE EVERYONE ELSE LOSES SO THE PANTHERS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS ...A guy can dream, right?
