Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins
(+2.5) (O/U 49.0)
I think it will be interesting to see two of the best in the game at their positions go at in this one as PSteelers receiver Antonio Brown will face off against cornerback Josh Norman. Brown is one of the most unstoppable receivers in the game, but Norman is good enough to keep him semi contained.
Either way the Steelers have a stacked offense and should find a way to get it done against Washington.
Pick: Steelers 31-20

Six of the twelve playoff spots are now locked in as we enter the final two weeks of the regular season. A slight improvement over the 3 straight 9-7 records to 10-6 puts me at 125-99 for the year. Should be an interesting week as several teams are fighting for their playoff lives.

Washington Redskins (7-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (6-8) (-3.0)
Say what you will about how you feel about teams in poor divisions with bad records hosting a playoff game, but the rules are the rules, which means this game is HUGE for these teams.
