NFL tips: Our 11/2 four-fold for Week 17
The Eagles and 49ers feature in Jack Green's NFL tips for the final week of the regular season.
Atlanta Falcons to beat Tampa Bay Buccaneers (18:00)
Atlanta head coach Dan Quinn is reportedly fighting for his job, and his players have responded by rattling off three consecutive wins.
The Falcons should keep their run going against the Buccaneers, who lost 23-20 to the Houston Texans last weekend as turnover-prone quarterback Jameis Winston threw four interceptions.
Winston has been dealing with thumb and knee injuries this week and it’s hard to trust him against an Atlanta defence that seems to have finally found its groove.
Tennessee Titans to beat Houston Texans (21:25)
The Texans have made the playoffs and now have nothing to play for in a game that means much more to the Titans.
Tennessee will reach the postseason if they beat their divisional rivals on Sunday, and they rested star running back Derrick Henry in last week’s defeat to the New Orleans Saints to ensure that he’d be fully fit for this game.
There’s a good chance that Houston’s starters won’t play the entire game on Sunday, so it’s worth backing Tennessee to gain revenge after they lost the reverse fixture 24-21 a fortnight ago.
Philadelphia Eagles to beat New York Giants (21:25)
The Eagles earned a huge win over the Dallas Cowboys last weekend to take control of the NFC East and move a step closer to the playoffs.
Philadelphia have now won three games in a row to save their season, and they should finish the job against the Giants, who needed overtime to beat bottom-dwellers Washington last week.
New York have beaten poor teams in the past two weeks, but they had lost nine games in a row prior to that, including a 23-17 defeat to the Eagles in Week 14.
San Francisco 49ers to beat Seattle Seahawks (01:20)
This is the biggest game of the weekend, with the NFC’s top seed and home advantage throughout the playoffs up for grabs.
San Francisco came from behind to beat the Los Angeles Rams last week, while the Seahawks suffered a surprising defeat to the Arizona Cardinals, losing their top two running backs to injury in the process.
Seattle have now lost two of their last three games and haven’t looked particularly impressive for weeks.
The 49ers are the better all-round team, are struggling less with injuries and have won six of their seven away games this season.
