More NFL Week 17 picks, predictions:

Sunday early games

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Football Team, 11 a.m., Fox

Washington was absolutely crushed by the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16. That has to hurt a team's psyche. 

Prediction: Eagles 24, Washington 14

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints, 11 a.m., Fox

The Panthers are now relegated to playing spoiler after being eliminated from postseason contention. They'll play the role vs. New Orleans.

Prediction: Panthers 24, Saints 21

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Jets, 11 a.m., Fox

The Buccaneers are dealing with a lot of injuries, but they are still as vastly superior team than the Jets.

Prediction: Buccaneers 31, Jets 17

Miami Dolphins at Tennessee Titans, 11 a.m., CBS

This game will be a very big one for playoff seeding for the Titans and a big one for just making the postseason for the Dolphins. We'll go with the team trying to get the berth in an upset.

Prediction: Dolphins 21, Titans 17

Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots, 11 a.m., CBS

Can the Jaguars upset the Patriots on the road? No, we don't think they can, especially without James Robinson.

Prediction: Patriots 28, Jaguars 13

Las Vegas Raiders at Indianapolis Colts, 11 a.m., Fox

Another game with big playoff implications, but we have to go with the home team in this one, a team that is becoming the team no one wants to face in the AFC.

Prediction: Colts 30, Raiders 21

Kansas City Chiefs at Cincinnati Bengals, 11 a.m., CBS

The Bengals are young and hungry, the Chiefs are experienced and still hungry. The experience will win out late.

Prediction: Chiefs 35, Bengals 32

New York Giants at Chicago Bears, 11 a.m., CBS

Neither of these teams are going to make the playoffs, but we have more confidence in the Bears showing up at home than the Giants showing up on the road.

Prediction: Bears 21, Giants 10

Atlanta Falcons at Buffalo Bills, 11 a.m., Fox

The Bills have been hyped as a Super Bowl contender all season. They are finally starting to look like one.

Prediction: Bills 30, Falcons 20

Sunday late games

Houston Texans at San Francisco 49ers, 2:05 p.m., CBS

The 49ers really need a win to help their playoff cause. After seeing the Texans beat the Los Angeles Chargers last week, they won't look past Houston.

Prediction: 49ers 24, Texans 16

Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers, 2:05 p.m., CBS

The Chargers' playoff chances took a hit with the loss to the Texans last week. They'll help their chances with a win over the Broncos.

Prediction: Chargers 31, Broncos 28

Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens, 2:25 p.m., Fox

The Ravens have lost four straight, but still find themselves in the thick of the AFC playoff race. They can't afford a fifth straight loss.

Prediction: Ravens 28, Rams 27

Detroit Lions at Seattle Seahawks, 2:25 p.m., Fox

Just the second game with both teams eliminated out of playoff contention this week. It's not easy to win in Seattle in the cold so we are going with the Seahawks.

Prediction: Seahawks 24, Lions 20

Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys, 2:25 p.m., Fox

The Cardinals have lost three straight games and desperately need a win. Problem is, the Cowboys are red-hot and they remember what happened in last year's meeting between the teams.

Prediction: Cowboys 21, Cardinals 20
