However, they have won six of their eight games since, including their last three. They control their own destiny heading into the Week 17 NFL schedule when they travel to Washington for an NFC East battle.

Top Week 17 NFL predictions
One of the model’s strongest Week 17 NFL picks is that the Cardinals (+6) cover the spread against the Cowboys. The Cardinals have lost three consecutive games since winning in Kyler Murray’s Week 13 return from an ankle injury. Over those three games, Murray has completed 61 percent of his passes ,but has thrown three interceptions to just two touchdowns.
Still, this spot could favor Arizona after Dallas clinched the NFC East last week. Even though there have been concerns about Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury, Arizona still has a path to win the division over the next two games. Murray and Kingsbury could both use a win against a team that can already start preparing for the postseason to hush the mounting criticism.
SportsLine’s model predicts Murray will have another up-and-down day, but will pass for just over 260 yards with a better chance to throw two touchdowns than two interceptions. Chase Edmonds is also projected to finish with over 100 total yards and the Cardinals keep the game within a point on the road.
Another one of its Week 17 NFL predictions: The Steelers (+3.5) cover against the Browns on Monday Night Football. This could be veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s final home game with the Steelers. He has led the team to a 5-0-1 record in their last six home games and will play in front of a raucous crowd. The Steelers still have a shot at making the playoffs with a pair of wins to close the regular season.
SportsLine’s model is projecting Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield to throw another interception on Monday Night Football. As a result, the Steelers cover the spread in more than 60 percent of simulations.
