2014 NFL Week 17 Preview Plus Our Winning Picks

nfl 2014 week 17 picks movie tv tech geeks

The NFL regular season has reached its final week. Week 17 is all divisional matchups and is often a win-or-go-home situation. Here’s all of the results and their playoff implications:

AFC

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens: Cleveland is out, but they can still spoil Baltimore’s party. The Ravens need a win to make the playoffs coupled with a Chiefs victory over the Chargers.

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs: For San Diego its simple: win and you’re in. Kansas City has a much tougher road ahead. The Chiefs would have to win, the Jaguars would have to beat the Texans, and Cleveland would have to upset Baltimore.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans: The Texans are a long shot, but there’s still that sliver of hope. A win over the Jags plus a Ravens loss plus a Chargers loss means a trip to the postseason for the Texans a year after going 2-14.

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos: Denver has two ways of earning the second seed. Either a win over Oakland or a Cincinnati loss secures the first round bye for the Broncos.

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers: This one is pretty simple. The winner gets the third seed, the loser gets the fifth seed. If the Broncos loss and the Bengals win then they get the second seed.

NFC

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons: The winner gets the fourth seed, the loser goes home.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers: If the Packers win, the Lions drop to the sixth seed. A Lions win, however, puts them in the second seed. If the Cardinals and Seahawks both loss, the Lions will be the first seed.

St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks: A win secures the Seahawks as the top seed. A loss and a Cardinals win makes them the fifth seed. A loss and a Cardinals loss makes them the third seed.

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers: If the Seahawks win, the Cardinals are stuck in the fifth seed. A win, Seahawks loss, and Packers loss makes the Cardinals the top seed in the NFC. A loss makes the Cardinals the fifth seed. A Seahawks loss and a Packers win makes the Cardinals the second seed.

Here are my picks for Week 17:

CLE @ BAL: Ravens

IND @ TEN: Colts

JAX @ HOU: Texans

DAL @ WSH: Cowboys

NYJ @ MIA: Dolphins

SD @ KC: Chiefs

CHI @ MIN: Vikings

BUF @ NE: Patriots

PHI @ NYG: Giants

NO @ TB: Saints

CAR @ ATL: Falcons

DET @ GB: Packers

OAK @ DEN: Broncos

ARI @ SF: 49ers

STL @ SEA: Seahawks

CIN @ PIT: Steelers
