NFL PICKS WEEK SEVENTEEN, 2012

I was 9-7 last week and John was 8-8. Our season long records are 115-118-5 and 109-124-5. 

Here are this weeks' picks:

1.) Buffalo Bills (5-10) at home (-3) vs. New York Jets (6-9)
  
Will Rex Ryan survive the Sanchez Implosion? Why isn't Chan Gailey on the hot seat? Two teams playing out the string.

PREDICTION: BILLS

2.) Cincinnati Bengals (9-6) at home (-2.5) vs. Baltimore Ravens (10-6)

Both teams are in the playoffs after impressive victories last week. The Bengals have back to back playoff appearances since 1981-1982 when Ken Anderson was the QB. Is Andy Dalton the Bungles version of Matt Ryan?

Prediction: BENGALS

3.) Houston Texans (12-3) (-7) at Indianapolis Colts (10-5) 

Both teams are in the playoffs, but the Texans need this for home field advantage.

Prediction: Texans

4.) Tennessee Titans (5-10) at home (-4) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13)

Who cares?

Prediction: Titans

5.) New York Giants (8-7) at home (-7) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (4-11)

Seven is too many.

Prediction: Eagles To Cover

6.) Chicago Bears (9-6) (-3) at Detroit Lions (4-11)

The Lions find ways to lose.

Prediction: Bears

7.) Atlanta Falcons (13-2) at home (-3) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-9)

The Bucs are done.

Prediction: Falcons

8.) New Orleans Saints (7-8) at home (-5) vs. Carolina Panthers (6-9)

The Saints are on a roll.

Prediction: Saints

9.) Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8) at home EVEN vs. Cleveland Browns (5-10)

Joe Banner poised to fire everyone in Cleveland

Prediction: Steelers

10.) New England Patriots (11-4) at home (-10.5) vs. Miami Dolphins (7-8)

Prediction: Patriots

11.) Green Bay Packers (11-4) (-4) at Minnesota Vikings (9-6)

Will Adrian Peterson get 209 yards? Probably not and the Packers want that bye week.

Prediction: Packers

12.) Denver Broncos (12-3) at home (-16.5) vs. Kansas City Chiefs (2-13)

The Broncos will know by kickoff whether this outcome gives them a shot at home field advantage.

Prediction: Broncos

13.) San Diego Chargers (5-10) at home (-10) vs. Oakland Raiders (4-11)

Norv Turner and A J Smith are goners on Monday morning.

Prediction: Chargers

14.) San Francisco 49ers (10-4-1) at home (-16.5) vs. Arizona Cardinals (5-10)

They'll be watching the scoreboard.

Prediction: 49ers

15.) Seattle Seahawks (10-5) at home (-11) vs. St. Louis Rams (7-7-1)

The Seahawks are a scoring machine.

Prediction: Seahawks

16.) Washington Redskins (9-6) at home (-3) vs. Dallas Cowboys (8-7)

Winner take all. Will Tony Romo step up?

Prediction: Redskins
