NFL Week 17 bold predictions, plus Jets-Browns grades and the six teams that can clinch a spot in playoffs

[ad_1]

Welcome to the Friday edition of the Pick Six newsletter!

For most of the past two decades, if you mentioned the words “Browns” and/or “playoffs” in the same sentence, you’d get laughed out of whatever room you were in, but now, Cleveland is getting the last laugh. The Browns decided to end 2023 with a bang on Thursday night by clinching a playoff spot. 

With the Browns officially in, that means seven of the NFL’s 14 playoff spots have been clinched. That number could shoot up to 13 this weekend and we’ll be going over the scenarios that could get us there. Also, we’ll be making some Week 17 picks and handing out some bold predictions today. 

Alright, it’s time to get to the final newsletter of 2023. And just as a reminder, there will be no newsletter on Monday. The first newsletter of 2024 will be coming at you on Tuesday, Jan. 2. 

Although we won’t have a newsletter on Monday, we will be recording a new podcast on New Year’s Eve where we’ll be recapping all the action from Week 17. If you want to join us, be sure to head here and subscribe to the NFL on CBS YouTube page. Also, just as a friendly reminder, don’t forget that there is an NFL game on Saturday with Lions at Cowboys kicking off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ABC/ESPN. 

As always, here’s your daily reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the newsletter. Actually, you don’t even have to tell all of your friends, just tell one friend and I’ll be happy. To get them signed up, all you have to do is click here. Let’s get to the rundown.
