NFL Week 17 Review
Before any analysis is given our hearts’ love and prayers remain with Damar Hamlin who suffered a crucial hit to the heart stood up and collapsed Monday night. He was taken to a nearby hospital and remains in critical condition as of this writing and the Bills-Bengals game was postponed to a date that’s TBD
Giants Def Colts 38-10
All the Giants had to do was simple. Win and in or they would have to take the second shot next week or rely on other scenarios. The questions about Daniel Jones’s ability are starting to fade away. He had one of the best games of his career with 177 yds, 2 TDS rushing for 91, and 2 TDS on the ground as well. The Colts fans at this point plead for losses wanting to fall into a better draft position.
Packers Def Vikings 41-17
For whatever reason it may be regular Sunday Kirk Cousins vs Primetime Kirk Cousins are drastically different people. Kirk Cousins has had dramatic struggles with football on Primetime. It was a horror yesterday for him throwing 3 ints and his golden boy and MVP candidate Justin Jefferson was limited to just 1 Rec and 15 yds. The Packers have hit a massive adrenaline rush and with a win, next week clinch a playoff spot in the NFC.
49ers Def Raiders 37-34 OT
the game of the century not quite. But the Raiders once again take part in a wild classic game that doesn’t result in their favor. The Raiders have officially been eliminated from playoff contention. Who would have thought a battle between last-draft pick Brock Purdy and Jared Stidham would be a classic? Stat lines everywhere, and the 49ers gw field goal in ot pushed them one step closer to taking over the 1 seed. With a win against the Cardinals next week and a 3rd straight Eagles loss the 49ers will lock the NFC’s top seed, a first-round bye and the Nfc will run through the Golden State
Lions Def Bears 41-10
Could any have thought that teams like the Packers and Lions after their horrific starts would catch winter or holiday heat and find themselves in a stalemate just one win away from sneaking into January war? We’ve seen Justin Fields show us some incredible mobile talent this season. Heroically, he rushed for 100+ yds just in the first quarter Sunday. The Bear’s 15 minutes of fame no pun intended ended after that. Jared Goff is on a streak of playing some of the best Football of his career and the Lions dominated 41-10 setting up a battle for the future next weekend against the Pack
Steelers def Ravens 16-13
One of the all-time great rivalries installed their 2nd and final edition of the season. Kenny Pickett is starting to show signs of a solid future with the Steelers. I mean that’s why they drafted him… Right? Struggling this season Najee Harris is easily the MVP of the game. He finished with 111 and caught an incredible catch that if the Steelers find their way into the postseason and maybe light up some underdog heroics it’ll be Najaes Td’s catch with less than a minute to go saving the season. It gave the Steelers the lead en route to victory
