Six Picks for Sunday - Week 17

The final week of the NFL season is upon us, which means it is also the last week of our Six Picks for Sunday challenge. The Rooster trails by six games, which makes his strategy pretty obvious for this week's picks. He'll have to throw a hail mary (horrible pun alert!) and hope for the best. So here are the six closest games, according to the Vegas line.

Chicago Bears @ Houston Texans - Bears
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints - Panthers
Kansas City Chiefs @ Cincinnati Bengals - Bengals
Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts - Colts
Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets - Dolphins
Washington Redskins @ San Francisco 49ers - 49ers

The Bears are still playing for a playoff spot and can at least prove their worth and keep hope alive with a victory in Houston... Carolina is still playing for the #2 seed in the NFC and the South division crown. They should handle a weak Saints team with nothing to play for... The Bengals have been less like the "Bungles" than usual lately so I'll take them at home... The Colts-Titans matchup means absolutely nothing so I'll take Indy in their own confines... Chad Pennington leads the Dolphins into the Meadowlands and beats the team that tossed him away... Niners end it on a good note following the news of Mike Singletary's return.
