NFL Office Pool Picks Week 17
For Week 17, there are games that will make or break seasons. The Giants and Cowboys will square off against one another looking for a chance at winning the NFC East. After their 1 p.m. EST game, the winner will have to wait for Washington and the Eagles to conclude with their game at around 11-11:30pm EST to see which team will win the division. It’s going to be a wild Week 17, but we’ve got you covered.
Many of our readers have NFL office pools that use them against the spread picks. We’re here to help you win those pools. It’s our mission to beat all of your co-workers and family members or friends for a little bit of money or bragging rights. Here’s the breakdown of every NFL game.
Dolphins vs Bills: The Dolphins needed Ryan Fitzpatrick to work his magic in Week 16 to get a win over the Raiders. The Dolphins will go back to Tua Tagovailoa for this game in Week 17. As long as the Dolphins are able to run the football against Buffalo and play solid enough defense, I like the Dolphins to come out on top. Take the Dolphins +1.
Ravens vs Bengals: The Bengals are an offensive powerhouse, but that will change against the Ravens. The defense looks really good against the Giants last week. And on top of that, the Ravens offense looks like they’re starting to figure things out with a great game against the Giants defense. Take the Ravens -11.5.
Steelers vs Browns: The Steelers will start Mason Rudolph in this game. The offense had already struggled for lots of the second half. Under Rudolph, it’s not going to get better. The Browns will need to win this game. However, the spread is starting to hit double digits, which is just flat out too much, even if the Steelers don’t need to win this game. Take the Steelers +10.
Vikings vs Lions: The Lions defense is horrendous. The Vikings defense is horrible. But I do think the Vikings can get at least a couple stops against the Lions in this game to win. The over sounds way more enticing. Take the Vikings -6.5.
Jets vs Patriots: Who are these Jets? It remains to be seen who will take on quarterback duties for the Patriots on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Jets have won two straight games with some solid defense and enough offense. Let’s roll with the hot team. Take the Jets +3.
Cowboys vs Giants: This game has playoff implications. Both teams need to win this game for a chance at winning the NFC East. The Cowboys offense has dominated recently. And after watching the Ravens take down the Giants defense with ease, it’s hard to imagine this game doing any differently. Take the Cowboys -3.
Falcons vs Buccaneers: The Falcons have shown off some serious defense recently only to choke on offense. I’ve trusted the Falcons way too much this season. I’ve got no trust left. I like the Bucs and what they bring to the table on offense, and the defense always steps up when needed the most. Take the Buccaneers -6.5.
Packers vs Bears: The Packers offense is one of a kind. The Bears defense used to be one of a kind. They’re not so good anymore. However, the Bears offense has looked really solid recently and could put up points in this game. The Packers need this game for the first seed, so I think they’ll play hard enough. Take the Packers -5.5.
Raiders vs Broncos: The Raiders have a lethal offense that when it gets hot, it gets really good. The Broncos defense has had solid games this season but can’t seem to put it all together in any game. The Raiders should be able to outscore a bad Broncos offense. Take the Raiders -2.
Jaguars vs Colts: When the Jaguars lose this game, they’ll be front in line to take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The Jags will do whatever it takes at this point to lose, whether that’s benching Gardner Minshew or whatever the case is. Take the Colts -14.
Chargers vs Chiefs: The Chiefs are sitting comfortably at 14-1 on the season and will now take on a 6-9 Chargers team. However, the Chiefs will be sitting most of their team and therefore the Chargers are favorites in this game. I can’t imagine Justin Herbert having trouble offensively here. Take the Chargers -3.5.
Cardinals vs Rams: The Rams nightmares continue with Jared Goff out with a thumb injury. That’s going to take a toll on this team. However, the Cardinals haven’t been all that great, either, behind Kyler Murray. I trust the Rams defense way more. Take the Rams +1.
Seahawks vs 49ers: The 49ers just don’t have enough offense when they’re losing. They can run well. However, when down multiple scores, it’s almost impossible for them to come back and win. I like the Seahawks to get ahead early and never look back. Take the Seahawks -5.5.
Saints vs Panthers: The Saints have Drew Brees back. And with a Packers loss and a Saints win, they’ll be the top seed in the NFC. This game matters, and they’ll play like it matters in this game. If they need to sit Brees for Taysom Hill due to precautionary reasons, I’m on board with that too. Take the Saints -6.5.
Titans vs Texans: The Titans offense struggled in the snow against the Packers, but this offense won’t have a problem against a terrible Texans defense that JJ Watt called out after last week’s performance against the Bengals. The Titans are going to score and score a lot. Take the Titans -7.5.
Washington vs Eagles: If Washington wins this game, they’re going to make the playoffs. However, they just cut Dwayne Haskins and Alex Smith might not be able to go in this game to injury. The Eagles won’t let up behind Jalen Hurts. I like the Eagles to spice things up and steal this win from Washington. Take the Eagles +2.
