Week 17 of the 2019 campaign is upon us, and with it comes the NFL picks and score predictions you need to survive the final round of regular-season games.

Can you smell the NFL playoffs? They’re nearly here, as only one week remains in the regular season. The postseason picture is nearly complete, but anything is possible in Week 17 as several teams will be jockeying for positioning while others will be looking to play spoiler.

That’s why we’ve got you covered yet again with another round of NFL picks and score predictions. Now I’ll never claim that these are going to be 100 percent correct. In fact, there’s a very good chance at least a few of my picks will be way off the mark. I will, however, make my selections based on research, experience and careful consideration.

I just can’t seem to string together two exceptions weeks at this point. After going 13-3 in Week 15, a major regression came my way in Week 16 to the tune of 8-8. That downgraded by overall record on the year to 150-89-1. It certainly could be worse at this point, but that’s not the performance I was hoping for heading into the final week of the regular season.

But enough about the past — let’s dive into this week’s slate of games. Not all matchups are marquee, but there are a couple of games any football fan (regardless of allegiances) will want to tune in to.

So without further ado, here are my NFL picks and score predictions for the 16 games scheduled to take place in Week 17. Just keep in mind that I assume no responsibility if you choose to place wagers based on my picks — that’s your decision, not mine.

Week 17 Byes: None
