Line picks counted correct when the favored team wins; they do not have to beat the spread to count as a win.

Pick results for week 17.

Unanimous picks (10-2)

Correctly picked:

Lions @ Packers
Browns @ Steelers
Panthers @ Saints
Chiefs @ Bengals
Patriots @ Bills
Rams @ Falcons
Jaguars @ Ravens
Cowboys @ Eagles
Seahawks @ Cardinals
Broncos @ Chargers

Not so much:

Titans @ Colts
Both teams mostly played their backups.

Raiders @ Buccaneers
First 14 games: Buccaneers have only one game where they give up more than 24 points. Last two games, they give up 41 and 31. Was the Monte Kiffin situation that much of a distraction?

Split Picks (APR 1-3) (SRS 0-4) (Line 3-1)

Giants (APR, SRS) @ Vikings (Line)
The Giants played their backups for the second half. Even so, the Vikings needed a last-second 50-yard field goal to win the game. It doesn't bode well for the Vikings chances in the playoffs.

Dolphins (APR) @ Jets (SRS, Line)
Favre throws 3 interceptions including a pick 6.

Redskins (APR, SRS) @ 49ers (Line)
For the first time in a long while, Mike Singletary could make the 49ers a team worth watching.

Bears (APR, SRS) @ Texans (Line)
The Bears defense gives up 31 points. That's not good when the Bears offense has only made it to 31 points twice this season.
