Crystal Helmet, season finale

Posted by Jerry Brewer

It's Week 17 in the NFL (and Week 18 for the Crystal Helmet because the college season started a week earlier), so I'm down to my final regular-season picks of the year. I need to go a perfect 10 for 10 to reach my goal of 70 percent. If you think that's going to happen, you probably think the Mariners will go to the World Series in 2009.

(Speaking of wacky predictions, be sure to check out today's column, a quirky yet optimistic look at 2009.)

OK, let's play the game one last time.

Seahawks 24, Arizona 19
Why:
In the past five games, the Cardinals are 1-4. As talented as they are, their NFC West reign may not last beyond this season. In Mike Holmgren's Seahawks finale, his team will want to send him out with a three-game winning streak. Look for the Hawks to win a close one and leave Arizona wondering if next season will be different.

Minnesota 20, New York Giants 13
Baltimore 23, Jacksonville 14
Green Bay 31, Detroit 20
Miami 24, New York Jets 22
Dallas 27, Philadelphia 24
San Diego 35, Denver 29
New England 28, Buffalo 14
Atlanta 21, St. Louis 10
Tampa Bay 27, Oakland 14

Last week's record: 7-3
Season to date: 116-54 (68.2 percent)
