Predictions for Every NFL Game in Week 17

Athlon's experts pick their winners for every game, including the Falcons hosting the Panthers in a critical NFC South showdown for both teams

NFL Picks: Drew Brees

It’s Week 17 of the NFL regular season and even though all but three playoff spots have been claimed, there is still plenty left to be decided. The AFC Wild Card picture has yet to completely come into focus and some seeding is still up in the air in both conferences. To add to the intrigue, every game is on Sunday with all of the playoff-relevant contests kicking off at 4:25 p.m. ET.

 

As for the games themselves, the NFC South is probably the division that bears the closest attention. New Orleans can win the division title with a victory in Tampa Bay, while Carolina can steal it with a win in Atlanta and a loss by the Saints. The Falcons need a win over the Panthers to punch their playoff ticket or will be knocked out of the postseason should they lose and Seattle beat Arizona at home.

 

In the AFC, Baltimore (vs. Cincinnati) and Tennessee (vs. Jacksonville) get the two wild cards if they win. The Ravens also will get into the playoffs should the Titans or Bills (at Dolphins) lose. Tennessee can sneak in with a loss, but only if Buffalo and the Los Angeles Chargers (vs. Oakland) likewise lose. The Bills and Chargers have their own paths to a postseason berth, but will need help to get there and must win their games to even have a shot. Got all that?

 

Of the other matchups, the ones that carry the most intrigue are probably Cleveland at Pittsburgh as the Browns look to avoid becoming the second team in NFL history to go 0-16; as well as the Redskins vs. the Giants in a matchup of teams that are likely to see plenty of changes this offseason.

 

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in the final week of the regular season? Athlon's own Rob Doster (AthlonDoster) and John Gworek (JohnGworek), along with AthlonSports.com contributor Bryan Fischer (BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
