NFL Week 17 Matchups Predicted by Social Media

Terrell SuggsSo this is it, Week 17 of the NFL season. Most fans know whether or not their team will be headed to the post season, there are still two spots up for grabs in the AFC and one in the NFC (Full NFL playoff scenarios) – so fans will have something to watch for. While many folks watch the games to route on their teams, many enter weekly pick ‘em pools to see who can correctly pick the most wins over the 17 week season. So far on the year, I am sitting with a 123-116 mark. While the number might not seem like a world-beater, it impresses me because I use social media buzz to determine the winners. Sure using a bunch of formulas (click here for full description) based on chatter from everyone and their mother spouting off on the Web, I figured it couldn’t be any worse than that person who wins each week tossing a dart at each matchup or picking by hotness of cheerleaders. Don’t lie we know you are one of them. So here’s to wishing for a repeat of my 10-6 Week 16 – and a Baltimore win coupled with a New England loss – with this week’s social media predictions:

  • Detroit 15, Green Bay 1
  • Tennessee 6, Houston 10
  • Indianapolis 10, Jacksonville 6
  • NY Jets 16, Miami 0
  • Chicago 10, Minnesota 6
  • Buffalo 3, New England 13
  • Carolina 0, New Orleans 22
  • Washington 0, Philadelphia 22
  • San Francisco 10, St. Louis 6
  • Seattle 10, Arizona 6
  • Tampa Bay 0, Atlanta 16
  • Baltimore 10, Cincinnati 6
  • Pittsburgh 15, Cleveland 1
  • Kansas City -6, Denver 22
  • San Diego -6, Oakland 22
  • Dallas 3, NY Giants 13

How are you picking the season’s winners? If you’d like to try your luck against the social picks, I invite you to join the ESPN Pick ‘em league where Mike Schaffer is currently leading the pack with a 168-72 mark. Winner takes home a $25 Amazon gift card.
