This series was created for the purpose of showing my critics I give praise to other football teams. I refused from the beginning to not have the Steelers part of this series because of being criticized for being a homer. I'll stick with that through out. Time to give praise and critic other football teams besides my favorite.
1.Packers win without Rodgers-Matt Flynn and the Green Bay Packers offense battled in a shootout with the Lions. They didn't disappoint....480 passing yards and 6 TDs. When was the last time have you seen a backup step in and put up those kinds of #s?
2.Jason Taylor played his last game-Big win over a team he was on a year ago in the AFC Championship game. Taylor and the Miami Dolphins end the season of the Jets along with an ending to one helluva career. Congrats Jason.....you'll be missed,
3.Pats clinch home field-Started off slow, but ended strong vs the Bills. 1 point away from 50 points. Congrats to the Pats!!
4.Falcons dominate-The game vs the Bucs was over at halftime. Score 42-7......wonder if that momentum will carry in the playoffs? #5 seeded Falcons will play NFC East division winner. Prove me wrong!!
5.Indy got what they wanted?-A loss today clinches the team getting the number 1 pick in April's draft. Will they take Luck or trade the pick? Either way, they got great value there.
*Bonus: Kyle Orton get his revenge?-A very big game for Kyle Orton since he was the starter in Denver before Tebow. KC defeated the Broncos, but they still won the AFC West and made the playoffs.
1.Jets season ends.....-Another predicted Super Bowl victory and another failure to deliver. Rex Ryan was furious on the sidelines as the qb who he continues to protect gives up turnovers.
2.Did Bengals want it?-Despite losing to the Ravens, they will get in the playoffs because every team lost who were in contention to get in the playoffs. Lucky for the Bengals....my pick to get first playoff win vs Houston. Write it down!!
3.Houston Texans lose 3 straight-!Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they lost 3 straight. Not a good way to be heading into the playoffs with virtually no momentum, no starting qb, and so on.
4.Raiders playoff drought continues-.The Raiders had the qb they wanted and they couldn't get it done. A win would have got the Raiders in the playoffs, but the job didn't get done. Team was 4-2 before Carson Palmer stepped on the football field. Doesn't look as if the trade worked out.
5.Lions lose to Packers with starters out-.No real excuse to lose to the Packers without key players out there like Rodgers. They actually played better vs the Packers Thanksgiving Day on the defensive side anyway. How does this defense expect to stop an offense the Saints have the way they played vs a backup qb.
*Bonus:Broncos lose to Orton led Chiefs -.Despite the loss...the Broncos made the playoffs because of Raiders loss to the Chargers this week. Surprised??Don't be.........STAY JEALOUS!!
