PFT’s Week 18 2023 NFL picks, Florio vs. Simms

Through 256 games, it’s all knotted up.

After we each went 12-4 last week, we’re 160-96-0.

In the last week before the playoffs, we disagree on three games straight up. That means one of us will win the regular-season crown.

For all picks made by Simms and me for Week 18, scroll on.

Steelers (-4) at Ravens

The Steelers are playing for a playoff spot. The Ravens might be content to let them in, instead of the Bills.

Florio: Steelers, 20-10.

Simms: Steelers, 20-17.

Texans (-1) at Colts

We finally get to see C.J. Stroud in primetime. That’s bad news for the Colts.

Florio: Texans, 20-17.

Simms: Texans, 27-20.

Buccaneers (-4.5) at Panthers

The Bucs need a touchdown celebration that pays homage to Panthers owner David Tepper throwing a drink.

Florio: Buccaneers, 24-7.

Simms: Buccaneers, 21-10.

Browns at Bengals (-7)

The Bengals are playing to win. The Browns are treating Week 18 like a bye.

Florio: Bengals, 24-10.

Simms: Bengals, 17-13.

An injury or two could make the Lions regret not calling off the dogs for Week 18.

Florio: Lions, 27-20.

Simms: Lions, 28-24.

Jets at Patriots (-2)

This could be Bill Belichick’s last game with the Patriots. That possibility means it should be an easy win.

Simms: Patriots, 17-10.

Falcons at Saints (-3)

The Saints continue to be just good enough to just miss the playoffs.

Florio: Saints, 30-23.

They’re getting it together in time for another division title.

Can Jordan Love do what Aaron Rodgers failed to do last year?

Rams at 49ers (-4)

The 49ers’ starters (other than Brock Purdy) will play long enough to make a difference.

Simms: Cowboys, 34-20.

Both teams have had their struggles. For Miami, the injuries and last week’s blowout in Baltimore might be too much to overcome.
