Week 17 picks

Last week of the regular season. After a disappointing week 15, we rallied to our plateau of .500 by going 8-8. It's time to close the regular season out hot, though. So here goes our week 17 picks. Enjoy...

Dolphins (+4.5) v. PATS
NE is not gonna play all their guys all game and Tony Sparano and Chad Henne are feeling the heat.

BTPC pick = Miami taking the 4.5

Bills (+8) v. JETS
We like the Bills for the same reason we like Miami. However...Brian Brohm may be starting for the Bills so we're not quite as sure on this one.

BTPC pick = Bills getting the 8.

Cowboys (+10) v. EAGLES
Garrett is trying to remove the interim from his title and Dallas gets to dump Roy Williams after this season.

BTPC pick = Cowboys taking the 10.

Giants (-4) v. REDSKINS
Is Tom Coughlin feeling heat? We actually kinda like the Shannahans here to continue to prove they were right picking Rex Grossman over the Campbell's Soup Spokeswoman's son.

BTPC pick = Skins taking the 4.

Steelers (-5.5) v. BROWNS
The 'Burgh is playing for the #2 seed in the AFC and a first round bye. Cleveland is playing for...Eric Mangini's job? We'll take the first one.

BTPC pick = Steelers laying the 5.5

RAVENS (-9.5) v. Bengals
The Ravens are hoping the Steelers lose and this game gives them the #2 seed. 9.5 is a lotta points, but you do have Carson Palmer throwing on a football field Ed Reed will be on. There could be like 4 pick sixes this game.

BTPC pick = Ravens laying the 9.5

Vikes (+3) v. LIONS
The Joe Webb Ride continues. My god...look at the size of his hands!

BTPC pick = Vikes taking the 3.

PACKERS (-10) v. Bears
Warning, if Atlanta wins their 1pm game, this game could be rendered meaningless for the Bears because they'll have locked in the #2 NFC seed. That's right...da Bears. Wow.

BTPC pick = Bears getting 10.

Titans (+9.5) v. COLTS
This could be Fisher's last game for the Titans. And he's playing his man crush, Peyton.

BTPC pick = Titans taking the 9.5

TEXANS (-3) v. Jags
The Jags will be without Garrard and MJD and it took a hail mary to win last time.

BTPC pick = Texans laying 3.

FALCONS (-14.5) v. Panthers
Falcons playing for the #1 seed in the NFC. Panthers...Jimmy Fox's last game. We'll take the first.

BTPC pick = Falcons laying 14.5

BUCS (+7.5) v. Saints
Josh Freeman and the upstart Bucs or Peyton and his veteran team in a game they'll be scoreboard watching until pulling the starters once Atlanta gets to pounding on Carolina. We'll take the first.

BTPC pick = UPSET SPECIAL! Bucs getting the 7.5

CHIEFS (-3.5) v. Raiders
KC could clinch the 3rd seed in the AFC. Wow.

BTPC pick = KC laying the 3.5

BRONCOS (+3.5) v. Chargers
So much for that Charger December record awesomeness. Could the state of Denver explode if Tebow wins this game? Yes...but Phil Rivers is gonna pop that ballon. There's only room for one supercharged egotistical gunslinger in the AFC West.

BTPC pick = San Diego laying the 3.5

Cards (+6.5) v. 49ERS
Uh...take the points?

BTPC pick = Cards taking the 6.5

Rams (-3) v. SEAHAWKS
Charlie Whitehurst v. Sam Bradford. We'll take the latter.

BTPC pick = Rams laying the 3

Last Week: 8-8 Upset Special: 1-0
Season to date: 124-107-9 Upset specials 10-2-1
Career to date: 250-229-17
