It's the final week of the regular season and survival pools! It's always a tricky week since teams could rest players at some point during the games. Every game is Sunday and four teams are favored by double-digits.


Here are my top survivor picks for Week 18:


1) Buffalo Bills

The Bills tend to beat up on bad teams. The Jets have been competitive lately and almost beat the Buccaneers last week, but that was at home. The Bills need a win to clinch the AFC East. Buffalo beat the Jets earlier in the season, 45-17, and Josh Allen passed for a season-high 366 yards in that game. The Jets also allow 29.8 points per game, which is the most in the NFL. 


2) Indianapolis Colts

The Colts need a win to clinch a playoff spot. The Jaguars allowed 50 points last week to the Patriots and have won only two of their last 31 games, including an eight-game losing streak. These teams met in November and the Colts won at home, 23-17. Indy, though, has struggled in Jacksonville with six consecutive losses there.


3) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers can't get the No. 1 seed, but they can get the No. 2 seed with a win and a Rams loss to San Francisco. All indications are the Buccaneers will play all their starters. The Bucs are at home and are 6-1 in Tampa Bay thus far. The Panthers, meanwhile, have lost six consecutive games and lost the first matchup, 32-6. The Panthers also haven't scored more than 14 points in four straight games.


Other teams to consider: Tennessee, Kansas City, Washington


Season: 40-8
