It's the last week of the regular season, meaning this is our last week of standard picks. Next week, we'll each pick a full playoff bracket with an increasing number of points assigned to each round of games. Plus, we'll update our brackets week to week with commentary on the past and upcoming matchups. Get excited!!

But before we get into all that, let's take a look at Week 17.

Chargers @ Chiefs

Pick Sideline Commentary
Allen
39-25-1
Arrowhead is a tough place to win for an away team, and I still don't believe Rivers has it in him.
Madeline
37-27-1
Meh, I guess Chargers. PLEASE LET THE PACKERS WIN!
Jackie
34-30-1
The NFL is silly this year and this is going to be another one of those possibly surprising games. Despite the Chiefs being at home, I guess I will go with the Bolt.
Makeda
30-34-1
Bah, this is so hard. I've liked the Chiefs all season, but they have been sucking hard the last few weeks. The Chargers needed OT to beat the Niners, who are...not great, but a win would give them a playoff spot. As much as it pains me, I'm giving it to the Chargers.
Lauren
24-40-1
I'd love to see Philip Rivers and his crazy mug take a selfie with Tony Romo.

Panthers @ Falcons

Pick Sideline Commentary
Allen
36-24-1
Just when I thought I was out, they sucked me back in. All my resistance is gone. Like a dude going back to the girl who cheated on him and stole his credit card, I'm completely on board with Atlanta. Win this one, get the Cardinals and some dude who has no business playing QB in the NFL at home... I know the pain is coming, but I'm in anyway. It's a sickness.
Madeline
37-27-1
I would like the Falcons to win. PLEASE LET THE PACKERS WIN!
Jackie
34-30-1
I am in Atlanta right now, so Rise Up?
Makeda
30-34-1
I would love to see the Panthers run away with this game for the sheer WTF-ery of it all, but that's not gonna happen.
Lauren
24-40-1
Just for you, Allen. Although really, Tony Romo looks forward to beating either of these teams in the playoffs.

Lions @ Packers

Pick Sideline Commentary
Allen
39-25-1
So Madeline, how do you feel about this game? Any interest either way?
Madeline
37-27-1
I would like the Packers to win. Very much. Please. Seriously...please.
Jackie
34-30-1
I am still not a believer in the Lions. I haven't seen them to get offense and defense together in the same game.
Makeda
30-34-1
This is exactly the kind of intradivision late-season matchup where Aaron Rodgers could randomly have his worst game of the year and the Lions win by some score like 26-15. I mean, I don't actually think that will happen. But would you be all that surprised if it did?
Lauren
24-40-1
This is hard for me, really. I had a debate the other night about if Megatron or Dez is better. I don't know the answer, but I do know that Dez has a better QB throwing to him.... (spoiler alert: TONY ROMO)

Bengals @ Steelers

Pick Sideline Commentary
Allen
39-25-1
The Bengals' win over Denver was just a bad dream, right? I don't think I'm ready to live in a world where Andy Dalton and Tony Romo meet in the Super Bowl.
Madeline
37-27-1
I just can’t get behind the Bengals, even after MNF. I like Mike Tomlin, too. All my picks are mostly who I like more. Oh, well. PLEASE LET THE PACKERS WIN!
Jackie
34-30-1
Steelers at home? Geez, the AFC North is so unpredictable. Steelers it is.
Makeda
30-34-1
I am truly baffled by the AFC North. I'm getting on the Steelers train because I am not AT ALL ready to live in an Andy Dalton/Tony Romo Super Bowl world. I don't want to live in a world where Tony Romo is in the postseason, but since I obviously didn't get that gift for Christmas, I'll settle for DEAR GOD PLEASE DO NOT LET THE COWBOYS MAKE IT TO THE SUPER BOWL.
Lauren
24-40-1
Makeda can tell you why. [Ed. note: I sure can!! But I'll let LSum have a little mystery in her life.] Sidenote: did you know Tony Romo is going to the Pro Bowl or the Super Bowl this year? God bless him.
