Our Week 17 NFL picks

And so it goes, another NFL season filled with twists and turns down the stretch, the kind of intrigue that makes the best sport going.

Tread carefully this week, though, especially with plenty of teams resting players in advance of the playoffs. That means games like Buffalo-Indy, Carolina-New Orleans and Green Bay-Arizona are especially tricky.

Good luck, and enjoy the final regular season weekend. And if you're playing the Beat Bob Glauber picks contest, here's the link.
