Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL Predictions

Week 16 is in the books, and we now have only two weeks left in the regular season. My Week 16 NFL predictions garnered me a 9-3 record. My overall mark jumped to 95-47 and the winning percentage went from 66.2 to 66.9%. The Saints beating the Cleveland Browns was my first defeat. With the win, New Orleans stayed alive for the NFC South crown. My second one came when Carolina beat the red-hot Detroit Lions. The third and final defeat was when Green Bay went to Miami and defeated the Dolphins. The Packers also remain in playoff contention in the NFC. Tua tossed 3 interceptions and we learned they were tossed after his concussion. We have a lot of playoff spots to be determine these last couple of weeks. Going into Week 17, there’s a lot of news coming out of the NFL.

J.J. Watt announced this is his final season in the NFL. The future Hall-of-Famer had an amazing career, but injuries cut short his remarkable stint. The Denver Broncos fired Nathaniel Hackett in his first year as the coach. Hackett finished with a 4-11 record and fell to the Rams 51-14. Jacksonville took over the AFC South after defeating the Jets and Tennessee lost to Houston. Buffalo, Kansas City and Cincinnati continue their winning ways as they remain the top 3 teams in the AFC. In an epic game, Dallas defeated Philadelphia 40-34 despite Garner Minshew throwing for over 350 yards. Tampa Bay edged Arizona in OT to remain atop of the NFC South. They host Carolina this week with the winner taking control of the division. The Los Angeles Chargers beat Indianapolis to clinch a playoff berth. This week I’ll be predicting a total of 13 games with playoff implications.

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsAs always, we kick things off with the Thursday Night game on Amazon Prime Video. The Dallas Cowboys head to Tennessee to battle the Titans. Dallas is pretty much locked into the 5th seed in the NFC. They have an outside shot at winning the NFC East but need Philly to lose their final two games. Dallas will likely stack the line and make Malik Willis beat them. Can Dallas beat Tennessee and put pressure on Philly? Tennessee is on a 5-game losing streak and have lost the division lead in the process. The Titans face the Jaguars in the season finale, and it will be for the AFC South crown. There has been talk about some of the Titans players will rest this game in preparation for the Jacksonville game. Dallas should leave Tennessee with the win. Cowboys Win 30-17

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsWe head to the NFC North for this matchup. The Chicago Bears head to Detroit to face off against the Lions. Both squads have something to play for in this one. The Bears are still in contention for the #1 draft pick in this upcoming NFL Draft. The Bears are currently on a 8-game losing streak. Chicago have showed signs of potential, but it’s not translating into wins. Heading into the offseason, Chicago will need to surround Justin Fields with some talent. They will also need to improve the offensive line to protect Fields. Detroit is a half game behind for the final Wild Card spot. With them starting the season 1-6, this is an amazing turnaround. The Lions fell to Carolina last week, but they rebound and beat Chicago this week. Lions Win 34-21

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsWe head to the AFC West for this matchup of teams going opposite directions. The Denver Broncos head to Arrowhead Stadium to battle the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos is in the middle of a disastrous season. They have dropped six of their last seven games and the team is fighting each other on the sidelines. The franchise fired their 1st year coach Nathaniel Hackett in the process. Denver is hoping to play spoiler to the Chiefs hopes of grabbing the #1 seed. Kansas City is tied with Buffalo atop of the AFC, but Bills own the tiebreaker seeing they beat Kansas City. They also feel heat from Cincinnati also. The Bengals are a game behind the Chiefs and the Bengals own that tiebreaker after beating Kansas City earlier. Kansas City should win this one with ease. Chiefs Win 31-17

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsThis is an AFC East matchup with major playoff implications. The Miami Dolphins heads up to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Patriots. The Dolphins have dropped 4 games in a row. They are barely holding onto their playoff lives. Miami hold onto the final Wild Card spot and the Patriots are a game behind. Tua will most likely not playing seeing he just suffered his 3rd concussion this season. Miami will have to find a way to end their 4-game drought. The Patriots have dropped 4 of their last 5 games. The last two losses were heartbreakers and could cost them their season. The defense of New England will have to come up big to win this one. New England should win this one and overtake Miami for the final spot. Patriots Win 20-17

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsWe head to New York as the Giants host the Indianapolis Colts. The season for the Indianapolis Colts can’t end quick enough. They were blown out by Dallas three weeks ago. Two weeks ago, they blew the largest lead in NFL history to the Minnesota Vikings. Last Monday night, they started Nick Foles and fell to the Chargers 20-3. The Colts are looking like they will have a great pick and possibly finally get their future franchise QB. The Giants can secure a playoff berth with a win over the Colts. New York fell to Minnesota a week ago in an incredible game. Daniel Jones has been playing at an elite level the last couple of weeks. Saquon Barkley is also playing great as he gets healthier. New York should clinch their playoff berth with a win over Indianapolis. Giants Win 27-17

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsThe New Orleans Saints head up to Philadelphia to battle the injured riddled Eagles. The Saints were left for dead, but they have won their last two games. New Orleans still have a shot to win the NFC South, but they need Carolina to beat Tampa Bay. The defense has stepped up in the last month. The Saints defense is giving up an average of less than 15 points a game. Can New Orleans pull off the upset? Will Philly be without Jalen Hurts again? The Eagles had a chance to wrap up the division and conference a week ago but fell to Dallas. Two key pieces are missing on both sides of the ball in Lane Johnson and Avante Maddox. Philly needs the win to rest the starters in the final game and they will win. Eagles Win 31-20

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsWe have a matchup that could determine the winner of the NFC South. The Carolina Panthers heads down to Tampa to battle the Buccaneers. If Carolina wins, they take over the division lead heading into the final week. If Tampa were to win, they clinch the NFC South division. The Panthers have won three of their last four games. Sam Darnold have avoided mistakes and the Panthers have become one of the best running offenses. Can they continue that trend and beat the Bucs? It’s easy to say that Tampa Bay is having an awful season. They ended their 2-game losing streak by barely beating the Arizona Cardinals. They needed a game winning field goal to get the job done. This is a tough one, but Tom Brady finds a way to lead Tampa to the division clinching win. Bucs Win 20-17

 

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsThe Cleveland Browns head to Washington to take on the Commanders. The Browns fell to the Saints last week and it eliminated them from playoff contention. With Deshaun Watson being suspended for 11 games this felt like a wasted season for Cleveland. Having not played in almost two years, we knew he would be rusty. Cleveland is playing for pride and hoping to play spoiler for the Commanders playoff hopes. Can they pull off the upset on the road? Washington is barely holding onto the final Wild Card spot by a half game. They are winless in their last three games and Carson Wentz replaced Taylor Heinicke in their loss to the 49ers. Carson Wentz will start this game. With this being the second game back for Chase Young it will help the defense lead them to the win. Commanders Win 26-20

San Francisco is arguably the hottest team in the NFL. They are currently on an 8-game winning streak. They have the best defense in the league. Brock Purdy continues to lead this offense despite not having Deebo Samuel back. The 49ers are a game behind the Vikings for the 2nd spot in the NFC. Will the Niners make it 9 games in a row? Las Vegas is holding on to their playoff lives. The Raiders are two games behind the Dolphins for the final Wild Card spot. They need to win their last two games and a lot of help to make the playoffs. They face the Chiefs next week, but they’re eliminated this one. 49ers Win 31-17

The New York Jets head to the Pacific Northwest to face the Seattle Seahawks. After being 7-4, the Jets have dropped four games in a row. The Jets will turn to Mike White after the offense put up 20 points in the two games he missed. White missed those games due to a rib injury. New York is one of 4 teams with 7-8 records and a game out of the playoffs in the AFC. Seattle have dropped 5 of their last 6 games. They were 6-3 and in first place of the NFC West, but the bottom fell out of the Seahawks season. Seattle is a half game behind Washington along with Detroit and Green Bay. I’m picking Seattle to win this. Seahawks Win 23-21

Green Bay comes into this contest on a 3-game winning streak. The Packers along with the Lions and Seahawks trail the Commanders by a half game. Aaron Rodgers and his young receivers are finally on the same page. Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillion continue to torch opposing defenses. Green Bay wins and set up a huge game against Detroit.

Travis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsTravis 2022 Week 17 NFL PredictionsWe have an AFC North battle between longtime rivals. The Pittsburgh Steelers head to Baltimore to face the Ravens.

They have won 4 of their last 5 games and find themselves a game behind for the final spot. They are 7-8 and tied with 4 other teams with the same record. Could Lamar Jackson return for this game? Baltimore is still fighting for the division as they trail Cincinnati by a game. They travel to Cincinnati for the season finale with a chance to win the division. The offense is only averaging less than 12 points in their last four games. Baltimore should win this game. Ravens Win 20-13

The Buffalo Bills travel to Cincinnati to take on the red-hot Bengals. This could possibly be a preview of the AFC Championship game.

Cincinnati is riding an 8-game winning streak and they’re the hottest team in the AFC. Cincinnati is looking like the team that made the Super Bowl run a year ago. The Bengals has been getting off to quick starts the last couple of games. This is about to shake up the AFC because I’m picking Cincinnati to win this one. Bengals Win 30-28
