Walker's AFC North picks
By James Walker
The AFC North blog held its own in Week 16 with a 2-1 record. The Cincinnati Bengals' upset of the San Diego Chargers was the only blemish.
Here are our picks for Week 17 (all times are ET):
Cincinnati Bengals (4-11) at Baltimore Ravens (11-4), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: The Bengals are finally playing good football and have won three straight against Baltimore. But I don't see Cincinnati taking another game at M&T Bank Stadium.
Pick: Ravens, 21-14
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4) at Cleveland Browns (5-10), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: I didn't get a good feeling being around the Browns this week. This could be the calm before the storm that includes major changes on the coaching staff. Pittsburgh cruises.
Pick: Steelers, 21-7
Last week: 2-1
Comment: We didn't do well enough this year to qualify for the playoffs. So this is our final week picking games until next season.
