After a scorching week picking 12 of 16 winners, including the most important one, the Baltimore Ravens over the New York Giants, I'll try to finish the regular season on a roll with week 17 picks & pans.
A 75% success rate will make you a wealthy man picking the winners in Las Vegas. Not only that, but I got the New Orleans Saints over the Dallas Cowboys correct in my only "Upset Special Pick of the Week." Here's Sunday's week 17 games and I'll make my pick in the Baltimore Ravens at the Cincinnati Bengals game tomorrow:
Colts over Texans: Indianapolis is still playing for pride and are tough at home, while Houston might have a problem, giving up points by the bunches late in the season. An '"Upset Special Pick of the Week."
Eagles over Giants: Another "Upset Special," as for some strange reason, I think Michael Vick has more to play for than the Giants do, even though New York still has an outside chance of making the post season.
Saints over Panthers: For a team that started off 0-4, New Orleans has finished strong and a lot of teams are happy not to see them in the playoffs, and Carolina QB Cam Newton just won't be able to match the offensive fireworks from Saints QB Drew Brees and company.
Vikings over Packers: Green Bay is in the post season but Minnesota needs this one to stay alive in the playoff hunt, so I'm going with Adrian Peterson to continue his amazing return from ACL surgery in this "Upset Special."
Cowboys over Redskins: Washington is at home, Dallas is on the road and lost at home last week and earlier this season to the Redskins. Therefore, in this crazy NFL season, while it seems like the Skins should win at home with the NFC East title on the line, I see the 'Boys coming up big in the biggest game of the weekend. Another "Upset Special!"
Last Week: 12-4
Season Record: 153-87-1
