NFL week 17 game picks: Division rivals clash as season comes to a close

New, comments
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL schedulers a few years ago decided to make sure the final weekend of the season had as much drama as possible, so they scheduled all division games for week 17. Before we get to those games, let's review last week.

It wasn't a great week for most of us, with four of us coming in at 9-7 and Jeff with the worst record at 8-8. But standing out from the crowd was Marcus with an 11-5. He did it in part by being one of just two to correctly pick the Giants over the Rams. But more so because 4 of his 5 missed picks were consensus picks. It wasn't enough to pull him out of last place, but it brings him to within a game of Jeff, making it more interesting heading into the final week of the season.

No one is more than three games away from the guy ahead of them in the picks rankings, so the final rankings would look very different come Monday.

There are nine consensus picks this week. They are the Ravens, Cowboys, Colts, Texans, Patriots, Saints, Packers, Broncos (sorry), and Seahawks.

There is just one rogue pick this week and it is RDreamer taking the Jets over the Dolphins.
