The Hoser's 2014 NFL Picks, Week 17 Edition

I think last week was the first time I've missed getting my selections posted in five years. I'm just barely getting them in this week.

Detroit (+7.5) at Green Bay (46.5): Packers 30, Lions 20.
Jacksonville (+8) at Houston (38.5): Texans 24, Jaguars 20.
Cincinnati (+3.5) at Pittsburgh (48): Not two weeks in a row in prime time, Andy. Steelers 31, Bengals 20.
Indianapolis (-7.5)  at Tennessee (46.5): Colts 26, Titans 16.
Cleveland (+13.5) at Baltimore (40): I'm hoping to look at the sidelines this week and see Brian Sipe. Ravens 24, Browns 13.
Buffalo (+5.5) at New England (43.5): Edelman and Gronk are out. No matter. Patriots 27, Bills 17.
New York Jets (+7) at Miami (41.5): So long, Rex Ryan. At least he might enjoy getting the boot. Dolphins 23, Jets 20.
Carolina (+3) at Atlanta (47.5): Carolina is really the better team, but I have a weird feeling about Matty Ice ripping up the Panther secondary. Falcons 29, Panthers 24.
Chicago (+7) at Minnesota (46.5): You know, the Vikings might actually be pretty damned good next year. And the Bears might have a new quarterback, coach AND GM. Vikings 24, Bears 19.
San Diego (+2.5) at Kansas City (42): Philip Rivers will make this happen. Chargers 26, Chiefs 14.
Philadelphia (PK) at NY Giants (52): Giants 26, Eagles 23.
Dallas (-6) at Washington (48): The Racists will be fired up after a big win last week. Cowboys 23, Racists 20.
New Orleans (-5.5) at Tampa Bay (46.5): Sean Payton for Jim Harbaugh? Christ, I wouldn't wish that on the Saints. Buccaneers 24, Saints 23.
St. Louis (+11.5) at Seattle (41.5): The Rams always play tough in their own division. Classic backdoor cover situation, too. Seahawks 23, Rams 13.
Arizona (+6.5) at San Francisco (37.5): Damn it, go get Matt Schaub! 49ers 21, Cardinals 17.
Oakland (+14) at Denver (48): The Broncos are pretty banged up. The Raiders are on the road. Brnocos 34, Raiders 22.

Lock of the Week: Oakland
Trifecta: Oakland, Pittsburgh, Atlanta
