It's Week 17! We've reached the final week of the season, which means lots of teams have something to play and many of them don't. But we still have plenty to play for in our season-long pick 'em. We had a change at the top of the standings for the first time all year, as Bette Marston took over the top spot from Kalyn Kahler. And Mitch Goldich is just a game behind as well.

Our crew mostly agrees on the games this week, only deadlocked on Bears-Vikings. And we didn't come to a consensus on any upset picks this week. But that doesn't mean none of our staffers see some Week 17 upsets on the way.

Let's make some picks.

Here's who is picking games straight up for the MMQB this year:

Andrew Brandt, Business of Football Columnist
Mitch Goldich, Producer/Writer
Bette Marston, Associate Editor
Kalyn Kahler, Staff Writer
Conor Orr, Staff Writer

Jenny Vrentas, Senior Writer
