Matthew Stypulkoski: The gut instinct is to give the Titans the edge at home, Marcus Mariota’s health is the big key here. He suffered a stinger last week, which could make for a tougher Week 17, especially against Andrew Luck and the Colts, who have won eight of nine. Colts 31, Titans 27.
Ryan Dunleavy: Winner goes to the playoffs, but I still expect the Texans to win the AFC South. The Colts trailed Giants last week for 59 minutes before winning in the last minute. The Titans shut out the Giants two weeks ago. What do we learn from the comparison? Not much. I’ll take the Colts’ offense over the Titans’ defense in an era of offense. Colts 23, Titans 16.
Mike Kaye: The Eagles are surging with Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles at quarterback. With their playoff hopes still alive, Foles should be able to lead the Eagles past Washington with ease.

Darryl Slater: Washington has already been eliminated from playoff contention, but the Eagles can make it, at 9-7, if they beat Washington and the Vikings lose to the Bears. The Vikings currently hold the NFC’s final wildcard spot, with the Eagles being their only remaining challenger. The Eagles get it done in a big spot on the road. Eagles 21, Washington 17.
