Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 17 of the 2015 NFL season.
The last week of the regular season looks to be an exciting time. The NFC Playoff bracket is set with teams but not with placement. Arizona can claim home-field advantage if they win and Carolina loses. Minnesota and Green Bay are fighting for the NFC North.
The AFC bracket is a different story. Thanks to the New York Jets beating the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh losing to Baltimore, the Jets are in the driver seat. Jets need to win to clinch, while Pittsburgh needs to win and have the Jets lose to get in. Who will claim that last playoff spot?
Now, let’s talk picks. I went 10-6 in the picks for Week 16, bringing my total to 159-91. See what I got wrong below.
