Only two weeks of this left have me feeling some type of way. But yesterday’s NFL slate did NOT disappoint with great games, playoffs shaking out, and controversy… LOTS of freaking controversy.
Broncos 25, Colts 13
Brock Osweiler came in
to a meaningless game for injured Trevor Siemian and did pretty good (for Brock). I see him finishing out the year strong ENOUGH and earning himself an insane contract by a dumb frachise… Eyes emoji @ the Bills.
Lions 20, Bears 10
I know the Bears have the cupcake-iest schedule ever, but I love Matt Stafford and need a playoff game outta them. Unless the Falcons lose tonight, there may just be too much ground to cover.
Chiefs 30, Chargers 13
The Chiefs basically* are in the playoffs. One win against the Dolphins OR Broncos coming up will do it… And I want this to happen because the Chiefs could ABSOLUTELY be a team to fear in the playoffs. The can run, the can pass, they get big plays on special teams… Look out New England!
Bills 24, Dolphins 16
IF THE SEASON ENDED TODAY, THE BILLS 17-YEAR PLAYOFF DROUGHT WOULD BE OVER!!! SEND IT!!!!!!!
Eagles 34, Giants 29
Boy did going to this game make me hate the Eagles and their fans again, but hey – losing is winning for the Giants! So la-la-la WHATEVER!! Good luck with Nick Foles you cocksuckers!
Ravens 27, Browns 10
The Browns season stays perfectly imperfect, so THANK GOD for that. And the narrative on the Ravens will inevitably be that playoff Joe Flacco is back… But is he elite?
Vikings 34, Bengals 7
Teddy Bridgewater is BACK!! Just kidding, he played garbage time, throwing two passes – one of which ended up getting picked. Pretty funny the two top NFC teams are led by Case Keenum and Nick Foles though!
Saints 31, Jets 19
Bryce Petty completed less than half of his passes and posted a 36.4 QBR throwing two picks in the game that FINALLY officially eliminated the Jets from playoff contention… Green means go!
Bryce Petty looks overwhelmed and startled by a camera. I'm sure he'll do great this Sunday. pic.twitter.com/bS6DDtutBw

Redskins 20, Cardinals 15
This game literally meant nothing, so good job Washington for making their draft spot worse I guess!! Honestly, didn’t even know this game happened until RIGHT NWOW.
Panthers 31, Packers 24
Rodgers throwing 3 picks in his fact game back in action in months was NOT what Green Bay was hoping for… Looks like a Green Bay-less playoffs are upon us for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, Cam Newton did one of the coolest things ever and got it mic’d up – chirping Clay Matthews CLEAR AS DAY on this TD pass:
Clay Matthews: It's that wheel route, it's that wheel route
Cam Newton: You been watching film, huh?
Cam: That's cool. Watch this
Cam: Slant to McCaffrey TD
This is incredible pic.twitter.com/T1nr7vaJ71

Jaguars 45, Texans 7
TJ Yates posted a SHOCKING 2.3 QBR as Houston continues to look terrible without DeShaun Watson… And don’t look now, but Blake Bortles’ Jags have clinched a playoff spot. Tom Coughlin really is elite.
Rams 42, Seahawks 7
Honestly, the Rams just put a hurt on Seattle, IN Seattle… Teams don’t do that. Should I start believing in them? Hmm…

Patriots 27, Steelers 24
Steelers fans feel robbed by the refs and disheartened that AB’s out with a torn calf muscle… Never has a fan base been more demoralized sitting #2 in their conference with just two weeks left.
49ers 25, Titans 23
JIMMY GAROPPOLO IS THE GOAT AND HE’S NEVER LOST A GAME HE’S STARTED!! THE NINERS ARE BACK!! THE NINERS ARE BACK!!!
Cowboys 20, Raiders 17
This game featured one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen a ref do… to see if a football was past the first down sticks, he used a piece of paper out of his back pocket. He put the paper in between the ball and the sticks, and then signaled first down:

Beyond the most confusing thing I’ve ever seen…
And boom, with only two left to go, you can now pretend you’re up to speed in NFL talks today at work. Now go #sports it up!
* = That was a BIT of a jinx because I’d also like to see Phillip Rivers get his moment… Just looks like this isn’t his year.
