Six Picks for Sunday - Week Seventeen


Even though the standings are wrapped up for our Six Picks for Sunday competition, we're still going at it for the final week of the 2009-2010 season. As you know, these are determined by the six games with the closest spreads, although the games will be predicted straight up. Feel free to post your own picks in the comments section and for the up-to-date results and standings, click here.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns - Browns
Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys - Eagles
Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions - Bears
Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Buccaneers
Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals - Cardinals
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Miami Dolphins - Steelers

It's a hard week to pick games because of teams resting players, but some of these games involve playoff positioning... I'll take the Browns since they're hot... I think the Eagles are simply better than the Cowboys and both are still playing for a first-round playoff bye... The Bears should beat the Lions after their nice victory over the Vikings... Give me the Bucs, coming off their big win against the Saints... Packers and Cardinals is another game involving playoff positioning and a potential first-round bye, so I'll take the Cards at home... The Steelers are still fighting for an unlikely playoff spot, so I think they'll win but fall short of their ultimate goal, which is a spot in the tournament.
