Our turkey rule is 13 minutes per pound -- but pull them when their internal temperature registers 160. (The temperature will climb the last five degrees as they rest.)

Would that be 13 min p.p. based on combined weight? 17lbs x 13= 221 min (3.6 hours?)

No, they should cook much faster if they're in the oven at the same time together! If you roast them separately, they'll take that long.
