Week 17 in the NFL brings only 6 meaningless games out of 16. At stake are division titles, byes and wild card playoff spots. All of the winners will not be known until the last snap late Sunday night.

Well, folks, this is it: the regular-season finale is loaded with drama. In filling out the NFL's 12 playoff spots, several teams not only need to win, but also need other teams to beat their rivals. Eagles fans will be cheering for the Bears. Steeler fans will be cheering for the Browns.

Adding to the drama will be injuries to key players like QB Marcus Mariota of the Titans, WR TY Hilton of the Colts, WR Antonio Brown of the Steelers and RB Todd Gurley of the Rams. 

Hunker down with your beer and chips; soon enough, we will have in place the last pieces of the playoff puzzle. Then, we can start summarizing the year and predicting who will win the race for the Super Bowl.

Without further ado, here are the Week 17 matches and my picks (last week, I went 11-5):

1.   Dolphins at Bills                       Bills
2.    Lions at Packers                      Packers
3.    Jaguars at Texans                   Texans
4.   Jets at Patriots                         Patriots
5.   Panthers at Saints                   Saints
6.   Cowboys at Giants                   Giants
7.    Falcons at Bucs                        Bucs
8.    Browns at Ravens                   Ravens
9.    Raiders at Chiefs                     Chiefs
10.  Bears at Vikings                      Vikings
11.  Bengals at Steelers                 Steelers
12.  Eagles at Redskins                 Eagles
13.  Chargers at Broncos              Chargers
14.  49ers at Rams                         Rams
15.  Cardinals at Seahawks          Seahawks
16.  Colts at Titans                         Titans

I hope it's a Happy New Year for you and your team.
