Week 17 finale

Posted: December 29, 2011 by djplaymaker in NFL

The time has come. We are here. The final week of the regular season of the NFL. Two divisions are up for grabs as well as the final wild card spot in the AFC. Last week, we saw the Giants win the battle of NY, Adrian Peterson tearing both his MCL & ACL, another Dallas lost in December, & Dan Marino’s records for rookie season & regular season being surpassed by Cam Newton & Drew Brees. Not that much storyline for this week except draft postioning, play-off postioning & divisions needed to be won. Let’s chop it up shall we!

Sunday

Detroit vs Green Bay- Both teams are in the playoffs & the Packers already assured themselves home-field advantage throughout, but the Lions are competing w/ the Falcons for who gets the 5th seed. The Packers won the 1st match-up on Thanksgiving & that was the game that Suh got ejected for stepping on the lineman. The Packers have nothing to prove, except to finish undefeated @ Lambeau. I wonder if McCarthy’s going to be in pre-season mode in this game. The Lions are 3 pt road faves.

Playmaker: I like the Lions to win & carry momentum into their wild card game. Cover the spread also

Noez:

Randy: Detroit

Tennessee vs Houston- The Texans are going to host a wild card game next week, but they aren’t looking good so far. How do they blow that game in Indy last week, I don’t know. Kubiak wants to at least play Andre Johnson this week, to get some rust out of him. TheTitans are still alive in the play-off hunt, but need a lot of help. The Titans are a fg road fave

Playmaker: I like the Texans to sneak out a win, carrying a little momentum going into the postseason. Take the cover also.

Noez:

Randy: Tennessee

Indianapolis vs Jacksonville- The Colts are happy this season is over, because despite winning the last 2 games, they were horrible. However, they are competing w/ the Rams for the no.1 pick in next yr’s draft. As for the Jags, it’s the final home game of the season & I wonder if their fans are going to show up. I know they got new ownership, but show up for their games or Los Angeles, here they come. The Jags are 3.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I like the Jags to win & cover the spread also

Noez:

Randy: Jacksonville

N.Y. Jets vs Miami-The Jets have to play the biggest game of the season inSouth Beach. Rex was hearing it from the local media after losing to the Giants & sorta lit a fire in Mark Sanchez’s ass when he told Steven A Smith if Peyton Manning was available next yr, he’ll take him, but Sanchez’s still his guy. For the Dolphins, the storyline for them is to send Jason Taylor out a winner since he’s retiring after the game. The Dolphins are 2.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I know teams struggle in South Beach, but the Jets will treat it like business & handle it knowing, they still have hopes for the postseason. Take the points also. Hi Havana gf!!

Noez:

Randy: Miami

Chicago vs Minnesota- Both teams are playing for pride this yr. It’s been a dismal yr for both teams. The Bears’ hope of postseason crashed down when both Cutler & Forte went down. The Vikings lost Peterson last week & now Ponder’s competing w/ Joe Webb for his job. Chicago won the 1st match-up in Chi-town & that was McNabb’s swan song. The Vikings are 1 pt home faves.

Playmaker: I like the Vikings to win the home finale. Take the over

Noez:

Randy: Minnesota

Buffalo vs New England- The Pats have already clinched a bye, but still are competing for the top seed in the AFC. The Bills are finishing the string out. The Bills won the 1st match-up in Buffalo, so expect the Pats to look for payback. The Pats are 10.5 home faves.

Playmaker: Take the Pats & the under

Noez:

Randy: New England

Carolina vs New Orleans- The Saints are competing w/ the 49ers for the 2nd seed in the NFC. Brees surpassed Marino’s single season passing record, so expect him to be in pre-season mode unless Sean Payton gets greedy. For the Panthers, the sad part is that it’s Cam Newton rookie finale, so look for him to put on a show in the Superdome. The Saints are 8.5 home faves.

Playmaker: Take the Saints & the under

Noez:

Randy: New Orleans

Washington vs Philadelphia- The Eagles are looking to finish @ .500 w/ a win this week. They are on a 3 game winning streak. It would had meant something for them this week had the Jets did them a favor & beat the Giants. The Redskins are finishing out the string also. Eagles won the 1st match-up in D.C. The Eagles are 8.5 faves.

Playmaker: Eagles & the over. Andy Reid should keep his job

Noez:

Randy: Philadelphia

San Francisco vs St. Louis- The 49ers need just to win to clinch the 2nd seed in the NFC. They finally got their respect by the league w/ 8 pro bowlers. The Rams just the Rams & w/ a Colts win & their loss, they get the no.1 pick. The 49ers are 10.5 road faves.

Playmaker: The 49ers & the under. Harbaugh would want that no. 2 seed

Noez:

Randy:

Tampa Bay vs Atlanta- The Falcons are looking to rebound after that Monday night performance in New Orleans. They are fighting w/ the Lions for the 5th slot in the NFC. The Bucs are playing for pride & Raheem Morris could be on the way out the door after Sunday. He’s a good coach, so someone will pick him up. The Falcons are 11 pt home faves.

Playmaker: Take the Falcons & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy: Atlanta

Baltimore vs Cincinnati- The Bengals control their own destiny this week . All they have to do is win & they are in. However, they got swept by the big dawg Steelers & the Ravens won the 1st match-up in Baltimore. The Ravens still haven’t clinched the AFC North yet & still have something to play for. Dalton & A.J. Green have great rookie yrs, but are they built for situations like this? We’ll find out. The Ravens are 2 pt road faves, even though they struggle on the road.

Playmaker: I know the Ravens struggle on the road, but I take them to win & take the over. Experience overshadows youth anyday.

Noez:

Randy: Baltimore

Pittsburgh vs Cleveland- The Steelers still are in the race for the AFC North title. They won in St. Louis w/ Charlie Batch starting, however Ben might get the start this week. For my Browns, Seneca starts again this week since McCoy still hasn’t been cleared from the Harrison hit. Pittsburgh beat us, but it was close the 1st match-up. There was no spread on this game.

Playmaker: Since Seneca’s starting, I like my Browns’ chances. Browns in an upset & give them a Phil Dawson fg

Noez:

Randy: Pittsburgh

Seattle vs Arizona- The Cardinals & Seahawks are looking to finish w/ a .500 record after this week. They are playing for pride here. Both had strong finishes, but too little, too late. The Seahawks won the 1st match-up in Seattle. The Cards are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: Too much Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks & the over

Noez:

Randy: Seattle

Kansas City vs Denver- Simply put, the Orton Bowl. Kyle returns to Denver & tries to play spoiler to the Broncos playoff hopes. The Broncos just need to win & the Raiders to lose to win the AFC west. The Broncos won the 1st match-up in Arrowhead in an ugly fashion.The Chiefs look more juvenated w/ Romeo coaching them. Can Tebow rebound from the Buffalo massacre? We’ll find out this week. The Broncos are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: Tebow time!! Take the Broncos & the cover

Noez:

Randy: Denver

San Diego vs Oakland- The Raiders have to win & need Orton to play spoiler to Tebow to clinch the AFC west. The Chargers have nothing to play for & will miss the postseason for the 2nd year in a row. Norv Turner likely to coach his final game as Chargers coach. The Raiders won the 1st match-up in S.D. & the Chargers haven’t beaten Oakland in 3 yrs. The Raiders are a Sea Bass fave @ home.

Playmaker: I like the Raiders to win & cover

Noez:

Randy: Oakland

Dallas vs N.Y.Giants- The NFC East’s up for grabs in this game. The Giants dominated the battle of NY last week while the Cowboys under Romo just seem to can’t get right in December. He gets hurt in their loss vs the Eagles & Jerry Jones needs him to step up in their biggest game of the yr. The Giants won the 1st match-up in Dallas because the Cowboys defense couldn’t hold a double digit lead w/ 5 mins left. Who to rely on Eli or Tony? The Giants are a fg fave @ home.

Playmaker- I believe in Eli & the G-Man!! (Prepare to enjoy no Cowboy playoffs Letty, but jokes aside, that’s fucked up what happened to your car)

Noez:

Randy: N.Y. Giants

Last week, your boy went 11-5, randy 10-6, & Noez 7-9.Props to them & Mega for competing w/ me all season. Thanks to Leticia Robinson, the only female who read the blogs & had something to say whether I picked her Cowboys to win or not (I hope they get the people who stole your car). Happy b-day shoutouts to former Sage hostess Shea Snow, AC Carter, Monica Silva, Laticia Weathersby & my homie Alfredo Macias. Hope everyone out there have a safe New Year’s . Catch y’all next yr & next week for wild card weekend.
