    Neil Reynolds has established an eight-game lead over Jeff Reinebold as we enter the final two weeks of the 2021 regular season – can Jeff close the gap as they make their predictions for Week 17?

    As well as hosting Inside The Huddle on Sky Sports NFL every Tuesday at 9pm, Neil and Jeff release a weekly audio edition of ITH every Wednesday in which they make their game picks.

    Neil scored 10 to Jeff’s eight in Week 16 to open up a 155-147 advantage on the year as he correctly predicted victory for the Indianapolis Colts over the Arizona Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills’ impressive win against the New England Patriots to reclaim control of the AFC East.

    NEIL PICKS: Chiefs

    “You’ve got a Chiefs defense in there that across an eight-game winning streak has allowed an average of just 12.8 points per game, and Joe Burrow is coming off 525 passing yards which was the fourth-most in NFL history. I’m going to go Chiefs on the road to keep it going.”

    JEFF PICKS: Chiefs

    “I’m going to follow with the Chiefs. I just think that 525 yards, while it was incredible, I think it was a little bit of an inflated figure because the Ravens were really beat up and didn’t have anybody in the secondary.”

    Arizona Cardinals @ Dallas Cowboys

    NEIL PICKS: Cowboys

    “The Cardinals have lost three in a row, Dallas, when they’re playing like they did on Sunday night, look like a Super Bowl contender. I think Arizona are in real trouble, Dallas I think can take this one and keep rolling. I don’t know what’s gone wrong with the Cardinals.”

    JEFF PICKS: Cowboys

    “Too much inconsistency in Arizona, I’ll take the Cowboys.”

    Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers becomes their all-time passing TD leader with 11-yard TD to wide receiver Allen Lazard

    NEIL PICKS: Packers

    “We keep looking at Aaron Rodgers’ toe and worry about him limping around and he keeps delivering strike after strike downfield, and the defense is really impressive. As dangerous as Minnesota can be I’m going the Packers to win at home.”

    JEFF PICKS: Packers

    “No question, I think the Packers are a team that is poised to make a deep Super Bowl run.”

    Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers

    NEIL PICKS: Browns

    “Two teams with absolutely no room for error. I at least trust the Browns to have a plan if Baker can avoid the mistakes, they’ve got a good running game. Pittsburgh just look lost on offense, I’m going Browns here.”

    JEFF PICKS: Browns

    “You’ve got to go Browns. It’s shocking to me that offensive line coach Adrian Klemm leaves the Steelers, with two games to play in the season and they’re still in the playoff fight, to take a college job at Oregon. I’ve got to get hold of Adrian because that one shocked me, I heard the deal was in the works but I said ‘there’s no way they’ll let him out of his contract until after the season’, and Mike let him walk.”
