Crystal Helmet, Week 17

Posted by Jerry Brewer

I've been away on vacation, visiting my family in Kentucky and Tennessee. My column resumes Tuesday, but here are the weekly football picks. It's the second-to-last week, and my goal is to be at 70 percent. I have to be near perfect (17-3) to do that. Here's how I'm calling it this week.

Seahawks 21, New York Jets 17
Why:
It's Mike Holmgren's home finale, and the Jets have been awful on the West Coast this season. The Seahawks have been playing with tremendous pride of late, and they will leave their fans with a positive Qwest Field memory during a disappointing season.

Pittsburgh 17, Tennessee 13
Miami 31, Kansas City 14
New England 35, Arizona 21
Denver 24, Buffalo 20
Atlanta 21, Minnesota 19
Philadelphia 27, Washington 23
New York Giants 20, Carolina 17
Chicago 28, Green Bay 27
San Francisco 29, St. Louis 17

Last week's record: 6-4
Season to date: 109-51 (68.1 percent)
