Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Jay Morrison offers his predictions for Week 17 of NFL games.

Washington Redskins (7-8) at New York Giants (2-13)

The Giants clinch the No. 2 draft pick and their worst record since 1966.

Pick: Redskins 24, Giants 16

New York Jets (5-10) at New England Patriots (12-3)

The Patriots aren’t losing at home with the No. 1 seed on the line.

Pick: Patriots 41, Jets 17

Chicago Bears (5-10) at Minnesota Vikings (12-3)

The Vikings aren’t losing at home with a first-round bye on the line.

Pick: Vikings 35, Bears 13

Green Bay Packers (7-8) at Detroit Lions (8-7)

The Detroit M.O. — lose when it matters, win when it doesn’t.

Pick: Lions 28, Packers 24

Houston Texans (4-11) at Indianapolis Colts (3-12)

One for local fans to watch as the winner hosts the Bengals in 2018.

Pick: Colts 17, Texans 16

Cleveland Browns (0-15) at Pittsburgh Steelers (12-3)

No analysis, or snark, needed.

Pick: Steelers 44, Browns 0

Dallas Cowboys (8-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (13-2)

The Eagles are the shakiest No. 1 seed in NFL history.

Pick: Cowboys 28, Eagles 17

San Francisco 49ers (5-10) at Los Angeles Rams (11-4)

Rams have nothing to play for and the 49ers are building momentum for 2018.

Pick: 49ers 24, Rams 21

Oakland Raiders (6-9) at Los Angeles Chargers (8-7)

None of the AFC playoff teams want to the Chargers to get in, but they just might.

Pick: Chargers 31, Raiders 21

Kansas City Chiefs (9-6) at Denver Broncos (5-10)

Vance Joseph could be coaching for his job against a Chiefs team with nothing on the line.

Pick: Broncos 21, Chiefs 20

Jacksonville Jaguars (10-5) at Tennessee Titans (8-7)

If the Titans win, there could be a wild-card rematch. The Jags don’t want that.

Pick: Jaguars 21, Titans 17

New Orleans Saints (11-4) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-11)

Even if the Saints have no shot at a bye (if Vikings win), they should roll.

Pick: Saints 27, Buccaneers 14

Buffalo Bills (8-7) at Miami Dolphins (6-9)

Bills fans will be big Bengals fans Sunday. The locals can tell you that doesn’t usually end well.

Pick: Dolphins 24, Bills 21

Arizona Cardinals (7-8) at Seattle Seahawks (9-6)

Even with half their attention on the scoreboard, the Seahawks will roll.

Pick: Seahawks 31, Cardinals 20

Carolina Panthers (11-4) at Atlanta Falcons (9-6)

The Panthers want it. The Falcons need it.

Pick: Falcons 28, Panthers 27

Cincinnati Bengals (6-9) at Baltimore Ravens (9-6)

The Bengals have had the Ravens’ number of late, but last week’s win sated them and Baltimore needs the win.

Pick: Ravens 20, Bengals 10

This season: 154-73
