Throughout the 2021 NFL season, NFL Network analysts will provide one bold prediction heading into each week's slate of games (see the full Week 17 schedule).
Marc Ross: The Los Angeles Rams are riding a four-game win streak, while the Baltimore Ravens are on a four-game skid after just getting embarrassed in Joe Burrow's historic, 525-yard passing performance. And though the Ravens have been ravaged by injuries all season, they pull off the upset Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive -- no matter if Lamar Jackson plays or not.
Joe Thomas: The Cleveland Browns send Ben Roethlisberger out from his final regular-season home game at Heinz Field with a loss on a last-second field goal. The Browns' defense swarms the Steelers and forces Big Ben into two interceptions, while Nick Chubb rushes for 150 yards and three scores.
James Jones: The Cardinals are in a slump, but Kyler Murray isn't buying it and proves otherwise in a monster performance at AT&T Stadium. He helps Arizona snap its three-game losing streak by scoring four touchdowns (two pass, two rush) in a road win vs. Dallas.
DeAngelo Hall: Without Kirk Cousins, the Minnesota Vikings get steamrolled by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. MVP frontrunner Aaron Rodgers throws five touchdowns in a game for the first time this season.
Nate Burleson: It's not all about the NFL's leading rusher in Sunday's Raiders-Colts game, as Josh Jacobs goes toe-to-toe with Jonathan Taylor. Each running back rushes for 150 yards, though Taylor's Colts do win to clinch a postseason berth.
