Week 12 of the NFL Season wrapped up last night, so let’s get you covered on all that went down!
Buffalo 34 @ Philadelphia 37:
The game of the weekend in the NFL lived up to the hype.
Often times when two high powered offenses go up against each other the OPPOSITE of what you expect happens (low scoring games).
Luckily, there were PLENTY of points in this one as the game went to overtime.
The end result meant the Eagles are now 10-1 as they continue to survive the brutal part of their schedule.
On the other side, the Bills are now 6-6, and in real danger of missing the playoffs.
For a team that many expected to compete for the Super Bowl, this is obviously unacceptable.
And guess what their next game is?
At Kansas City……
Jacksonville 24 @ Houston 21:
With Jacksonville winning this puts the Jags in firm position to win the AFC South, AND potentially grab the number one seed in the AFC.
That is hard to believe given that only two years ago Jacksonville had the worst record in the NFL!
Speaking of fast growth, look no further than the Houston Texans.
Yes they lost, but they continued to show why drafting C.J. Stroud was the right choice.
He is well on his way to winning Rookie of the Year, and more importantly, being the true leader the franchise desperately needs.
Expect both of these teams to have some good battles in the coming years.
San Francisco 31 @ Seattle 13:
San Francisco seems to have gotten past their typical midseason slump (3 game losing streak) and looks well on its way to being a factor this winter.
The Niners made quick work of a respectable Seahawks team, which now means San Fran is in very good shape to win the division.
Of course, they have their sights set on a Super Bowl, and if they keep playing like this who is going to stop them?
Next up the 49ers play in Philadelphia, which should be a heck of a NFC Championship rematch.
Green Bay 29 @ Detroit 22:
Well hello Jordan Love!
In what has been an up and down year the Packers came to life with big time win over the division leading Lions.
This was Green Bay’s best performance of the season and will give them hope for the rest of this season, and beyond.
Detroit seems to have gotten into a bit of a funk.
Jared Goff is not taking care of the ball nearly as well as he used to, and that has been the primary cause of Detroit’s play.
Goff is a solid quarterback, but if the Lions want to take the next step as a franchise, they are going to need to find an upgrade at the quarterback position.
New Orleans 15 @ Atlanta 24:
Someone has to win this division!
Who will it be?
I do not know, but Atlanta winning puts them in a strong position to claim the division crown.
No team in the NFC South is all that great, but the winner of the division will get to host a home game.
That counts for something.
Then again, being mediocre is not exactly exciting, but oh well!
