Good evening, everyone! Today I want to discuss which picks I got correct and which ones I got wrong! So, let’s get started! I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Cardinals 21-13, but the final score was 19-16 Bucs over the Cardinals in overtime. The Buccaneers went down the field to kick a game-winning field goal and the Cards loss started by the fumble by Keaonte Ingram on the pitch on third down and 1. The Cards offense have finally gotten a deep pass to Hollywood Brown for a big gain during the third quarter. The Cardinals had a problem trying to connect a deep ball down the field, but they have finally got it. I predicted that the Chargers would beat the Colts 30-13, but the final score was 20-3 Chargers over the Colts.
I predicted that the Dolphins would beat the Packers 26-17, but the final score was 26-20 Packers over the Dolphins. Tua Tagovailoa threw 3 interceptions and plus a fumble by the offense. So, a total of 4 turnovers. Yep! Turnovers can absolutely kill you. I predicted that the Broncos would beat the Rams 13-10, but the final score was 51-14 Rams over the Broncos in a blowout.
So overall, I have gotten 2 out of 4 picks correct!!! Now, let’s get to the NFL week 17 picks, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Cardinals @Falcons game. Both of these teams are coming off with the losses last week. David Blough will be starting at quarterback for the Cardinals as they are out of the playoffs. The Falcons are also out of the playoffs as well, but they have a better losing record than the Cardinals do. I think the Falcons will beat the Cardinals 25-22. I think the Cardinals at this point are trying to get the higher draft pick going to the 2023 NFL draft and they want to have a lot of money to go into free agency. Plus, there is also a chance that the Cards could fire Kliff Kingsbury as they are actually the huge favorites to land a head coach from a former Saints coach Sean Payton. That would make the Cards fans really happy as they are calling for the head coach to be fired.
The next game I will predict is the Dolphins @Pats game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Dolphins will beat the Patriots 28-23. The Dolphins desperately need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive after losing a big one to the Packers last week’s Christmas game. The next game I will predict is the Saints @Eagles game. I think the Eagles will beat the Saints 38-20. The next game I will predict is the Colts @Giants game. I think the Giants will beat the Colts 27-10. The next game I will predict is the Panthers @Bucs game, the divisional rivalries. The Buccaneers can clinch their division with the win, but can they do it? They almost lost to the Cardinals because the offense was really struggling moving the ball down the field. So, I actually think the Panthers will spoil the game by beating the Bucs 24-21. Carolina knows that the Bucs offense is struggling right now and if they can take advantage of it, then the Panthers will have a decent chance of beating the Bucs. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Chiefs game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Chiefs will beat the Broncos 49-17. The next game I will predict is the Browns @Commanders game. I think the Commanders will beat the Browns 25-17. The next game I will predict is the 49ers @Raiders game. I think the 49ers will beat the Raiders 34-17. The next game I will predict is the Jets @Seahawks game. I think the Seahawks will beat the Jets 27-20. The next game I will predict is the Vikings @Packers game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Vikings will beat the Packers 23-20. The next game I will predict is the Rams @Chargers game. I think the Chargers will beat the Rams 29-13. The next game I will predict is the Steelers @Ravens game, the divisional rivalries on Sunday Night Football. I think the Ravens will beat the Steelers 24-23 in a very close game. The last game I will predict is the Bills @Bengals game. I think the Bengals will beat the Bills 30-24.
