It’s Week 17, the final week of the NFL season. Another great NFL season has come and gone and I want to thank all of you for following along at Cippin on Sports. We’re going to ramp up the coverage for the playoffs, so I hope you’re ready. Moving onto my NFL picks, I’m now 5 games above .500 for the season. Only a disastrous Week 17 can derail me, although Week 17 can do that to you. No teams has come out and said they’re resting their starters but oftentimes what teams say publicly doesn’t match up to what they actually do. Shocking, right? Anyway it’s time for my picks against the spread for Week 17, the reason you all are here. Home teams are in CAPS. Note: This website does not promote or advocate gambling. This is solely for entertainment purposes. BUFFALO BILLS (-3) over the New York Jets Even as a diehard Jets fan, I don’t think I can watch this game. CINCINNATI BENGALS (-1) over the Baltimore Ravens 5 years and 5 playoff appearances for John Harbaugh. Very impressive. Houston Texans (-7) over the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS Houston knows they need to win for the #1 seed and a bye. They won’t take Indy lightly.  Jacksonville Jaguars (+4) over the TENNESSEE TITANS I don’t know how the Titans have 5 wins. I’m convinced the Titans are the worst team in the NFL. Philadelphia Eagles (+7) over the NEW YORK GIANTS The Giants have looked liked one of the worst teams in football the past two weeks and now they’re favored by a touchdown in Andy Reid’s last game as Eagles coach. Chicago Bears (-3) over the DETROIT LIONS A couple of records at stake here as Calvin Johnson will look to get to 2,000 yards and Matthew Stafford should break the record for most passing attempts. Carolina Panthers (+5) over the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS The Panthers can get to 7-9 with a win, but will it be enough to save Ron Rivera’s job? NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (-10) over the Miami Dolphins The Dolphins can’t possibly get to 8-8 on the season, can they? Green Bay Packers (-3) over the MINNESOTA VIKINGS Don’t even think AP will ge to 2,000, much less break Eric Dickerson’s record. DENVER BRONCOS (-16) over the Kansas City Chiefs Everyone is talking about how the Seahawks have the most momentum going into the playoffs, but the Broncos have won 10 games in a row. Arizona Cardinals (+16.5) over the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS I think this line is way too high. I’m not convinced the 49ers are a legit contender. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (-10.5) over the St. Louis Rams They couldn’t make this line high enough. I’d bet on the Seahawks at home over anyone. Dallas Cowboys (+3) over the WASHINGTON REDSKINS Yes, I’m aware I’m backing Tony Romo in an elimination game. Yes I know I’ll regret it on Monday.
