Where does the time go? It’s Week 17 in the NFL, meaning it’s the final Sunday of regular season action before the postseason gets under way. Admittedly, there’s plenty that has already been determined in terms of this season’s playoff picture, but that’s hardly going to stop assistant editors Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle from breaking down the week’s slate of games. Plus, the two survived a scare from the Mayans, another Christmas of eating unhealthy and the aches and pains of shoveling since their last podcast. They deserve to blow off some steam with some gridiron chatter, even if it requires Cole to call in from his place of residence. This week, our two fearless podcasters are like two battering rams, differing in a number of their selections. If there’s one thing we can all agree on, though, it’s that Tony Romo and the Cowboys mustn’t throw up all over themselves again — although they probably will. Check out the complete list of Week 17 picks below, and have a listen to the final podcast of the regular season at the bottom of the page. Home teams in caps, lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.
