I need help understanding a computer suggestion

It is black to play on move 17 and the computer says I made a mistake with 17. ... Bf5.  The computer suggests  17. ... PxP 18. NxP Bf5 19.Nf3 .  I am wondering why not 19. Nxp+ forking the rook.

    Thank you.  I was looking for a knight trap but I missed I would win both.  Thanks so much!

    After 17...dxe5 18. Nxe5 Bf5 19. Nxf7+, Black plays 19... Ke7 20. Nxh8 Kxf6 and then wins the second (trapped) knight on h8.
