2012-01-01: 2011 NFL Season Week 17

The last week of the regular season games is here. Week 17 traditionally exhibits greater statistical dispersion than the other weeks. Teams that have locked in playoff spots will be resting the starting players and teams that do not have a chance at the playoffs may be looking for a better draft pick for next year.

Our algorithms once again have picked Green Bay to win but most likely they will rest Aaron Rodgers and most of the starters and Detroit will win the game. Green Bay is an enigma this year, they are 14-1 so far and they have given up more yards than they have gained over the year which invites some interesting analysis.
