NFL Week 17 bold predictions: Ravens snap Rams' win streak; Kyler Murray puts on a show in Dallas

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.
