It’s the final push for NFL teams as the regular season ends on Sunday, December 30. All 16 games are division contests, which should result in a memorable regular season finale.
The NFC East division title will be on the line in Week 17 when the Washington Redskins (9-6) host the Dallas Cowboys (8-7) on Sunday night (NBC, 8:20 PM ET). The winner takes the NFC East.
"It’s amazing how you play every week and you don’t think about what’s ahead but your opponent," says Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. "But, in a lot of ways, the only reason you play is to get your team into that position and to get in the playoffs so you have a chance. When you get in, anything can happen."
It's all on the line for the Cowboys on Sunday, and it's all on the line for our pick'em panel. Just like the Cowboys, our pick'em season will come down to the final game and everybody will need to be on top of their game to finish the season strong.
KD and Archie will battle it out for the season win, while Brandon, Dave, Rabble and Tom are in a tight race for the third spot. Overall, we're in a good spot, sporting a 2.5 game advantage over KDs 10-for-10 contest participants.
As this is the last game of the season, and some teams may decide to rest their starters, we're allowing the writers to change their picks until Sunday 1:00 pm ET to account for any last minute breaking information.
For now, these are our picks for Week 17, 2012.
