NFL Picks Week 17 2018: Game Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL games.

The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for Week 17 of the 2018 regular season schedule! Each week we’ll predict the winners of each and every NFL game. We’ll tally the results along the way and see who comes out on top at the end of the season. After Week 16, there’s a tie between myself and James Keane. It’s coming down to the wire! (Although we’ll still be doing playoff picks as well.)

When it comes to this week’s Philadelphia Eagles versus Washington Redskins game, most of our writers are feeling very confident in the reigning Super Bowl champions. Our writers are then split on the outcome of the Minnesota Vikings versus Chicago Bears game, which could determine if the Eagles will make the playoffs or not.

Feel free to post your own predictions or discuss the writer predictions in the comments. You can also vote for who you think will win the games. I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. Vote in the polls beneath the table.

Let’s get to this week’s picks!
