2012 Week 17 5* NFL Picks: Seahawks -11.5, REDSKINS -3 #nflonedotcom

Seeing is believing in the twelfth man in Washington. Averaging 50 points per game in their last three games, the SEAHAWKS arrive 5-0 SU in their last five Home games, and 5-0 SU in their last five Home matchups with the Rams. While the Rams have turned their season around going 4-1 SU in their last five games, they have not faced a streaking quarterback like Wilson, 98 rating, or a rushing attack that is averaging 161.7 rushing yards per game. With its defense allowing only 5 yards per game, look for Bradford to struggle all afternoon.

[Cowboys/REDSKINS] In the freezing tundra, there is little reason to believe that Romo can turn his year end record around against RGIII, 104.1 rating. here is no reason to believe they can turn their 0-5 record ATS in Washington. While the first matchup saw each of these teams power over 400 yards, as has been touted on the radio circuit all week long, the key in this one will be the Redskins #2 ranked Home rushing attack powered by Morris, 4.7 yards per carry. On the other side, the weather will challenge an already struggling 23rd ranked Dallas Road rushing attack.

  1. LOSER – Rams 13 – SEAHAWKS 20 – Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Russell Wilson added to his case for NFL Rookie of the Year, completing 15-of-19 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for the game-winning score to lift the Seattle Seahawks to a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Wilson’s touchdown pass tied Peyton Manning’s rookie record for passing touchdowns in a season with 26. Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 18 times for 100 yards, Golden Tate caught three passes for 105 yards and Michael Robinson hauled in three passes for 33 yards and score for the Seahawks (11-5), who locked up the NFC’s fifth seed in the upcoming playoffs. Seattle will play the winner of Washington and Dallas next weekend in the Wild Card round. The Seahawks won 11 games for the first time since going 13-3 in 2005. Sam Bradford was 25-for-42 passing for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Rams (7-8-1), who haven’t made the playoffs since 2004.

    • WINNER – Cowboys 18 – REDSKINS 28 – Landover, MD (Sports Network) – Alfred Morris saved his best game for the biggest stage, as the rookie running back rushed for a career-best 200 yards and three scores to help the Washington Redskins claim the NFC East crown with a 28-18 triumph over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at FedEx Field. Washington’s playoff hopes seemed dim after the team opened the season with just three wins in its first nine games, but the Redskins reeled off seven straight wins to earn their 14th division title in team history and first since 1999. Morris carried the ball 33 times in the victory, while Robert Griffin III finished just 9-of-18 passing for 100 yards to go with 63 rushing yards and a score on six carries for the Redskins (10-6), who will host their first playoff game in 12 years when the Seattle Seahawks visit for an NFC Wild Card game next Sunday at 4:30 p.m. (et). Morris finished the regular season with 1,613 rushing yards to pass Clinton Portis (1,516) for first on the club’s all-time single-season rushing list. Tony Romo completed 20-of-37 passes for 218 yards with two touchdown passes and three interceptions, while DeMarco Murray added 76 yards on 17 carries for the Cowboys (8-8), who missed the postseason for the third consecutive season.
