Nice Pick Cowher’s Week 17 NFL Picks


Think you can pick winners better than the NPC staff?

The fastest 17 weeks of the entire year are about to come to an end.  It’s especially sad for Steeler Nation, as we have one hell of a long offseason ahead of us.  Still, there is one last game to be played in the 2012 regular season for all teams.  The Steelers will look to end the season on a positive note with hopefully a good old fashion drubbing of the Cleveland Browns.  Who of which seem to be setting themselves up pretty good for a drubbing with half of their starters pulled from the game already.  The Jets train wreck is about to come to an end as Tebow is yet again passed up for a starting opportunity so that Sanchez can throw some more interceptions before his offseason vacation begins.  Adrian Peterson has 208 yards to catch Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record, as well as the Vikings are playing for a shot in the playoffs.  Peyton Manning’s incredible comeback season in Denver could potentially end with an 11-game winning streak to clinch home field advantage and the Cowboys and Redskins will duke it out for the NFC East crown.  An otherwise exciting Sunday, however bittersweet for Steelers fans.  Could we be seeing several of our beloved Steelers play their last game this Sunday at Heinz Field?  The fate of several players including James Harrison, Casey Hampton, and Brett Keisel are in question for the next season.  Naturally, Nice Pick Cowher will have all of your offseason needs fulfilled with continued coverage of all things Steelers.  Last week Craig was the overall winner and looks to be taking home the title of Nice Pick Cowher’s most prolific prognosticator of games for our first annual picks challenge.  As always we encourage our readers to pick along with us or shower Craig with nonstop praise for his excellent game picking skills in the comments section.  Here are the overall standings along with this week’s slate of games:

Kimmy = 149-90

Craig = 163-78

Dom = 152-87

Kari = 146-96

Andrew = 149-90

Lori = 136-71
