Pick against Mike: Week 17
Indianapolis at Buffalo: If Indy didn't want to play while undefeated, leading the Jets at home, why in the world would it put forth effort in a totally meaningless final week? The Colts won't. Bills win at home.
Chicago at Detroit: Bears are good at flexing when nothing's on the line. After playing with no resolve whatsoever for weeks, they'll go into Detroit and win.
Pittsburgh at Miami: Dolphins have zero pressure; Steelers are still in it. Pittsburgh wins on the road, then waits to get help for a playoff spot.
New York Giants at Minnesota: If the Giants flat-lined at home last week with a playoff spot on the line, why in the world would they win in Minny? Vikes need it and get it.
Atlanta at Tampa Bay: Buccaneers have gradually become competitive. They'll finish the season strong by beating the Falcons.
San Francisco at St. Louis: Niners.
New England at Houston: Can't imagine Belichick keeping his regulars on the field for very long with so little at stake. Houston at home.
New Orleans at Carolina: Saints, two weeks after being undefeated, are done. Won't win this one, won't win a playoff game. Done. Goodbye, Saints.
Jacksonville at Cleveland: Jags, still battling, will lose in the cold and snow in Cleveland.
Philadelphia at Dallas: Game of the week, easily. Cowboys win and go boldly into the playoffs. Who knew?
Washington at San Diego: Chargers have no reason to play, so they won't. Redskins win one of many meaningless games on the schedule.
Baltimore at Oakland: Ravens recover from self-destruction of a week ago and win in Oakland to keep hope alive.
Tennessee at Seattle: Titans finish strong; Seahawks are just finished.
Green Bay at Arizona: Nobody has anything to gain. Aaron Rogers outplays Matt Leinart as both teams try to stay healthy. Green Bay wins on the road.
Kansas City at Denver: Broncos can't possibly lose this game at home with a shot in the playoffs on the line.
Cincinnati at New York Jets: Bengals have nothing to play for, Jets have everything and are at home. Jets, easily.
