Best NFL picks and predictions for Week 17

Best NFL picks and predictions for Week 17

In the last weekend of regular season action in the NFL, which teams will punch their tickets to the postseason? 

This is it, folks. It's the last weekend of the NFL's regular season, meaning organizations across the country will be looking to seal their trips to the playoffs. Seedings are also on the line here in both conferences. 

In the NFC, Sunday's tilt between the Seahawks and 49ers will determine who ends up winning the West. Seattle looked set to capture the crown, but a rough loss at home to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16 completely flipped things for them. 

That's not the only big game, though, as there are plenty more matchups that NFL followers won't want to miss. It's going to be a wild Week 17, and we've got you set with our NFL picks in what should be a fun last week of the year before we get to the playoffs. 

 

Green Bay @ Detroit: 29/12/2019 @ 1:00 PM ET

With no Thursday Night Football games this week, fans will have to wait until Sunday. However, the Packers will head to Ford Field as massive favorites against the Detroit Lions, who will wrap up yet another tough season in the NFC North. 

With the Packers heading to the postseason, Aaron Rodgers is looking to get this squad back to the Super Bowl. However, the offense has been up and down throughout the year, despite Rodgers and Davante Adams continuing to be among the best duos in the league.

Green Bay should have no problems whatsoever in this one. Despite being the visiting team, look for the Packers to win and cover the spread against the lowly Lions. 

 

Philadelphia @ New York: 29/12/2019 @ 4:25 PM ET

After the Eagles dominated the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16, they basically have one foot in the playoffs. However, they CAN'T overlook the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. With a win, they will take home the NFC East championship. However, a loss and a Cowboys win would ruin their plans. 

The Giants are coming off a thrilling 41-35 win in overtime against the Redskins. In that victory, rookie Daniel Jones was on fire, throwing for 352 yards and five touchdowns. Now, he'll look to have his way with a banged-up Eagles defense.

Philly will look to earn a trip to the playoffs, while the G-Men will hope to play spoiler. Call it a hunch, but we're picking the Giants to come away with the upset win. 

 

Week 17 parlay free picks: Cowboys + Chiefs + Patriots 

In their last games this weekend, the Cowboys, Chiefs and Patriots ALL have something to play for. For the Cowboys, a win and Eagles loss means they're in the playoffs as NFC East champs. They take on the Redskins and Jason Garrett will literally be coaching for his job. 

The Patriots need a win to hold on to the No. 2 seed in the AFC. That means a first-round BYE in the playoffs. With a loss and a Chiefs win, though, Kansas City would earn the No. 2 seed. The Patriots plays the Dolphins, while the Chiefs will take on the Chargers.

• Cowboys moneyline over the Redskins
• Chiefs moneyline over the Chargers
• Patriots moneyline over the Dolphins

Dak Prescott may be injured, but he should be good enough to take down a Washington defense which just gave up 41 points to Daniel Jones and the Giants. Tom Brady should have no issues with Miami and the same can be said for Patrick Mahomes up against L.A. 

 

San Francisco @ Seattle: 30/12/19 @ 8:20 PM ET

It's your Game of the Week, as the 49ers will travel to the 206 to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The NFC West title is on the line for these two teams, who have gone back and forth in the standings throughout the year. 

Seattle's offense has been inconsistent of late, which was showcased in the loss to the Cardinals in Week 16. With SF's win, it set up this massive showdown for Sunday Night Football. Will Russell Wilson power the team to victory, or will Jimmy Garoppolo get things done for the 49ers?
