Picks, week 17 - to finish off a strong ATS year:


Detroit - 7 over Green Bay

Jets +15.5 vs Patriots (Pats win game)

Houston +4 vs Indianapolis (Colts win game)

Pittsburgh -13.5 over Cleveland

NY Giants +3.5 vs Washington (Skins win game)

Minnesota -12 over Chicago

Philadelphia +2.5 over Dallas

Baltimore -10 vs Cincinnati

Miami +3 over Buffalo

Carolina +4 over Atlanta (ATL eliminated)

New Orleans -10 over Tampa Bay

Jacksonville +6 over Tennessee (Titans eliminated)

Oakland +8 vs LA Chargers (LAC win game)

Seattle -8 over Arizona

Kansas City +3.5 over Denver

49ers +4 over LA Rams (Rams win game)


Enjoy, all.

edit - Pats win game vs Jets - have it at 27-20

Not a great first set of games for you, though games like Dallas-Philly have to be hard to pick, given the stakes.

not to be


WR is a greater position of need for the Brown's than QB.

Looks like we go 1 and 4.

1)  QB1 then pray Barkley is there - YAHTZEE if he is

2)  Barkley then take the qB that drops

3)  Barkley and OT

4)  QB1, OT if there, trade down if not

5)  QB1, OT if there, best available if not

3-4 start - could have been worse, Josh.

Minnesota had a goal line stand on Bears at the end.

I didnt factor in who needed to win, players missing etc

8-8 would be fine, if I get there.

Take a QB at 1 only if you are reasonably sure he is the face of your franchise for the next 10 years. I do not.see that guy this year. I would take Barkley and Minkah Fitzpatrick, right now. Brown's do not need to take a QB round one. They need to find and identify a franchise QB. That is not the same thing.

By the way, if the Browns do not think a QB is the franchise guy, I think they trade down. I also expect them to get a veteran which would allow them to develop a guy if they think Darnold or Rosen is their guy, but not ready.

I like the GM that said take a QB every year til you find your guy

Kizer isnt it, right?

So you are taking one round 2/3 or later?

Playoffs?, Playoffs?, The Bills are in the playoffs. The dickens you say. Don't think Andy Dalton will have to pay for any meals on future trips to Buffalo
