It’s not over until its over– Did anybody see the conclusion to the Raiders/Patriots game? That was unbelievablable and a costly mistake for Jakobi Myers. How about the Vikings game, they were down 33-0 at halftime, they came back to win in OT. The largest comeback in NFL History. That’s what makes these games so great, the unknown!
Purdy Good– There’s a guy that’s playing starting quarterback for the 49ers who’s looking mighty good so far in relief of Jimmy G, who went down a few weeks ago. The coaching staff has set this young man up good, and putting him in situations where he will succeed. Let’s see if he can keep it up against a stingy Commanders D.
#1 Seed in the AFC– There are three teams fighting for that #1 seed in the AFC and all three showed why they are the top teams in their conference. The biggest game was MIA vs BUF where Buffalo showed why there are legit contenders. Miami brought their A game in the frigid cold temperatures but it was the Bills that outlasted them in the end.
Lions are Roaring– Look out!! here comes the 7-7 Detroit Lions who looked poised to make the NFC playoffs. They just keep winning led by their motivator and coach Dan Campbell. Jared Goff is doing enough to win football games and has made big throws in crunch time. When you look at their remaining schedule, it’s pretty soft. Watch out Giants, Seahawks and Commanders here come the Lions.
Jalen is Hurts– Overshadowed by another solid Eagles win, Jalen Hurts sprained his shoulder and is expected to be out for a few weeks. This isn’t a serious injury, but their #1 seed could be in jeopardy with three games remaining. Next on their slate is a date with the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve.
Inconsistent Cowboys– We don’t know what to expect when we see the Cowboys each week. They have all the talent in the world, led by their leader and quarterback Dak Prescott. But the formula for success for them is running the ball, suffocating Defense and minimize mistakes. Against the Jaguars, not much of this happened. Dak turned the ball over and the defense gave up 40 points. If they are going to make a run in the playoffs they need to be more consistent. Dak has to be smarter with the ball,and the defense has to get to the quarterback and cause disruption.
