Riverfront Ball Week 17 NFL Staff Picks


It’s the last week of regular season action in the NFL. It is hard to believe that the season is already gone. Now, as we welcome week 17, most games are meaningless. However, the NFC is still unsettled and Sunday night’s matchup will be a good one. Here are the Riverfront Ball staff picks. Do you agree?

Bengals vs Ravens Game Predictions

J. Shifman

The Bengals will beat the Ravens but neither team will care that much since they will be seeing each other in a couple of weeks anyway. Green will have over 100 yards and a TD. The defense will introduce Flacco to the turf three times.

Final Score: Cincinnati 24, Baltimore 14

Mel Payne

Cincinnati will be looking to show the Ravens that they aren’t the baby in the family anymore and they can’t be pushed around like they were in week one. That being said, this game is also meaningless and both teams may look to get their starters some rest as the game progresses. I think Cincinnati will get out to a fast start and the defense will shut down Flacco.

Final Score: Cincinnati 10, Baltimore 3

Cody Chalmers

This game is meaningless for both teams in the sense that they have nothing to gain or lose. The Bengals however, have something to prove. They knocked the Steelers out of playoff contention and locked in their spot for the playoffs last week in a 13-10 win. Cincinnati can’t afford to take their foot off the gas and coast into the playoffs. They need to go full force into the playoffs with some momentum. A win against the Ravens would silence more doubters, and also give them confidence going into Wild Card weekend.

Final Score: Cincinnati 17, Baltimore 10
