Philly2Philly.com-Grid Iron Picks-NFL Picks Week 17


There are a few things that are stone cold mortal locks this season as we enter week 17 of the NFL season. The Colts and Saints will be the #1 seeds in their respective conferences. And, Steve O will be the winner of the 1st season of Philly2Philly.com's Grid Iron NFL Picks barring a miracle.  Steve O holds a 4-game lead over Dennis and unless he pulls a Smarty Jones he's the winner. 

Congrats Steve O. Now, that dinner I promised you...oh yeah....

The most compelling matchup of week 17 pits the Eagles up against the Cowboys. Face it. All of the other divisions are locked up. The Packers can tie the Vikes, but they can't win the North because the Vikes have a better division record and would win the tie-breaker.

In the case of the Eagles; they lead the Cowboys by one game and must win this game in order to secure a 12-4 record. Should they lose, both squads will be 11-5 and share the same division records. Thus the Cowboys would win by having a 2-0 head-to-head record. In other words, the Eagles must win. They also stand to lock up the #2 seed in the conference. And, if the Saints choke in the playoffs (which isn't out of the realm of possibility) then the Birds could be hosting their first Conference Championship Game since that guy named T.O. was here cheering the team on from the sidelines in 12 degree weather.

Our panel of experts are all bleeding green this week, all picking the Birds to upend the Cowboys.

Now, onto the rest of our Week 17 NFL Picks. And, remember if you take our advice, have your head examined!
