APC Week 17 NFL Picks: Packers will end 2018 on a high note

We like the Packers to win at Lambeau on Sunday and finish the year 7-8-1.

The Green Bay Packers can’t make the postseason with a victory on Sunday and they probably cannot sneak their way into the top ten picks in the 2019 NFL Draft with a loss. Therefore, it’s probably in everyone’s best interest for the team to simply win their week 17 game against the Detroit Lions and go into 2019 with some positive vibes.

Here at Acme Packing Company, that’s exactly what we expect. In our final batch of regular-season picks, we’re unanimous in predicting a Packers victory this afternoon. That result would take the Packers to 7-8-1 on the season, a half-game better than their 7-9 record from a year ago.

Meanwhile, our majority picks see the Minnesota Vikings earning the final NFC playoff spot with a win over the Chicago Bears. That result, combined with a Rams victory, would send the Vikings to Soldier Field next week for a rematch with Chicago in the Wild Card round. We also see a Baltimore Ravens victory earning them the AFC North title and the Colts beating the Titans for the final playoff spot in the AFC.

Check out our full picks below as we get ready for today’s games.
