Nick Bosa provides!

Unsurprisingly, NFL Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner Nick Bosa provided when it mattered most. Facing second-and-10 in overtime, Jarrett Stidham desired Davante Adams deep down the left side. The just issue was he could not get anything on the toss, due to the fact that Bosa strolled his offending lineman right into Stidham. Getting bumped by his colleague as he tossed, Stidham unloaded a wobbler that drifted in the air and boiled down into the hands of Tashaun Gipson for the interception. Gipson’s return, plus a low-block charge on Las Vegas, established the 49ers on the three-yard line. That then established redemption for Robbie Gould, whose 23-yard basket raised the 49ers to their ninth straight triumph.


The legend of Brock Purdy will grow after the seventh-round novice led the 49ers inside the Raiders’ 25-yard line. But on the last play of policy, Robbie Gould pressed his 41-yard basket broad right. The Raiders live!

Raiders will not disappear

Somehow holding on to playoff hopes, the Jarrett Stidham-led Raiders are providing the 49ers all they can manage. Thanks in big part due to the fact that of Davante Adams (7 catches, 153 backyards, 2 goals), Las Vegas has actually set up 34 points on the NFL’s leading defense, the most recent beginning a Josh Jacobs one-yard, game-tying goal run with 71 seconds to play.

40 hamburger

On Thanksgiving weekend, the Packers were 4-8 after quiting 40 indicate the Eagles on “Sunday Night Football.” Four video games and 5 weeks later on, Green Bay is back at .500 and manages its playoff fate getting in the routine season ending versus the Lions. It’s been an incredible turn-around for Aaron Rodgers’ group, which simply took apart the 12-3 Vikings by a rating of 41-10.

Bad Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins have actually been objectively really strong this season, however every now and then the Vikings offense goes totally stagnant. Sunday has actually been among those times. For the 2nd time this year, Cousins have actually tossed 3 interceptions in a video game as Green Bay has actually controlled its NFC North competitor from the dive.

Packers defense provides once again

When the 12-3 Vikings lose, they lose severely: 24-7 versus the Eagles in Week 2, 40-3 versus the Cowboys in Week 11, and 34-23 in Detroit in Week 14. Week 17 will more than likely be the group’s 4th loss this season of a minimum of 10 points, as the Vikings can’t do anything right down 34-3 early in the 4th quarter. Just as it appeared like Minnesota would score its very first goal, Kirk Cousins fumbled the ball back to Green Bay.

CMC x5

Another video game, another goal for Christian McCaffrey, who has actually been so essential given that coming by from Carolina. He’s now got a rating in 5 directly.

Another Mike Williams gem!

This. Guy. Catches, Everything. The Chargers pass receiver is something else.

Jarrett Stidham!

The 49ers have the leading defense in the NFL. Jarrett Stidham has actually tried 61 profession passes and tossed 2 goals.

Based on these 2 truths, somebody describe Stidham’s first-half stat line: 11-for-14, 145 backyards, 2 goals, no interceptions. He’s been great versus the hardest competitors, and obviously Davante Adams has actually been a huge aid.

And if that wasn’t enough, Stidham opened the 3rd quarter with a six-play, 84-yard drive throughout which he presented, waited till the last 2nd for the play to emerge, and after that struck a wide-open Davante Adams for what wound up being a 60-yard rating.

Catch of the day!

Parris Campbell had the early catch of the day … till Mike Williams put his objected to catch to embarassment. There are just a few gamers in the league that can make this catch. A thing of charm.

Mr. Touchdown

Austin Ekeler gotten in Sunday leading all non-quarterbacks with 16 overall goals, and he’s extended that lead with 2 first-half ratings versus the Rams on Sunday. The 2nd rating was an appeal, as Ekeler discovered a crease up the middle, made a protector miss out on in the secondary and after that fled from everybody else for the 72-yard home call.

Rodgers who? 

Aaron Rodgers was 4-for-9 for 28 backyards … and yet the Packers had a two-touchdown lead late in the very first half. That’s due to the fact that the defense and unique groups have actually pertained to play in a significant method. In addition to Keisean Nixon’s 105-yard kickoff return, Green Bay has actually gotten a 75-yard interception return from Darnell Savage Jr. and after that another interception from Adrian Amos off a tipped pass.

Fittingly, as I typed this blurb, Rodgers was leading a five-play, 60-yard drive that he topped with a 21-yard goal pass to Robert Tonyan.

Mr. Relevant 

Brock Purdy has actually been so excellent for the rising 49ers, and he’s revealing no indications of decreasing. He’s now tossed numerous goals in each of his very first 4 profession begins after discovering Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle in the opening half versus the Raiders.

Kickoff return TD!

Keisean Nixon has actually been amazing given that ending up being the Packers’ kickoff return male in late October. The 2019 undrafted totally free representative gotten in Sunday leading the NFL in kick return backyards (825) and kick return average (27.50), and now he can include kickoff return goal to his resume. With the Packers requiring to win to survive in the playoff hunt, Nixon, after fighting a groin injury all week, fielded the ball 5 backyards into his own goal line and was off to the races, weaving his method all the method for the 105-yard rating!

Let Geno Cook

Pro Bowler Geno Smith is appearing like the QB who made that bestow his radiance over the very first half of the season. He has actually not been as great recently, however he’s restored his previous versus a stout Jets defense. In a quarter and a half, he’s finished 7 of his 9 passes for 111 backyards and goals to Tyler Mabry and Colby Parkinson as Seattle wants to keep its playoff hopes alive.

It had to do with as great of a start as Jarrett Stidham might have requested for in his very first start changing Derek Carr. Despite dealing with the NFL’s leading defense, Stidham sculpted up the 49ers on the opening drive, marching 70 backyards on 6 plays and getting in touch with Darren Waller for the 24-yard rating.

Bucs punter conserves the day!

On fourth-and-10 around midfield, a bad breeze left Buccaneers punter Jake Camarda in a horrible circumstance. But with numerous Panthers chasing him, Camarda not just left the punt on the run, however the ball landed inside the 5-yard line. The punt didn’t wind up counting due to the fact that there was a disqualified male downfield, however if Camarda never ever got the punt off, Carolina would have had the ball in terrific field position with sufficient time to score the game-winning goal. Instead, there was a re-punt, which supported the Panthers too far to make anything occur prior to the clock struck no.

Game-winning FG!

Apologies for the absence of Falcons-Cardinals updates, however it was the only video game in the early window without playoff ramifications. Still, it was a back-and-forth affair that Younghoe Koo won with a chip-shot basket as time ended to raise Atlanta to the triumph.


You desire something done right? Do it yourself. Tom Brady did simply that on the objective line to all however seal the Buccaneers’ triumph and another NFC South title in what’s been a frustrating season.


Mike Evans is amazing. Not just does he have an NFL record 9 straight seasons with 1,000 backyards getting to begin his profession, however he’s definitely brought the Buccaneers with the NFC South title on the line. Just take a look at this stat line: 10 receptions, 207 backyards and 3 goals — from 30, 57 and 63 backyards — to bring the Buccaneers to the win and back-to-back department titles.

Another pick-six!

All the Eagles required is one win in their last 3 video games to finish up the No. 1 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. It’s appearing like Philadelphia is going to lose its 2nd video game in a row after backup QB Gardner Minshew’s pick-six to Marshon Lattimore put New Orleans up 10 in the last minutes.


The Patriots defense conserving the day when again. Trailing, 14-10, late in the 3rd quarter, Kyle Dugger leapt in front of the Dolphins pass-catcher to snag the interception and take it back 39 backyards for the consent rating. And to add fuel to the fire, Duggar’s violent stiff-arm to Teddy Bridgewater near the objective line knocked the Dolphins’ beginning quarterback out of the video game.

Broncos? Broncos!

The Broncos, who were humiliated in front of a nationwide audience on Christmas Day, in some way have the lead over the Chiefs getting in the 4th quarter. Russell Wilson’s goal pass to Albert Okwuegbunam put Denver ahead.

Eagles have actually life

The Jalen Hurts-less Eagles have done generally absolutely nothing offensively versus the Saints … till Gardner Minshew simply chose to toss it approximately A.J. Brown in single protection. Paulson Adebo got tangled up with Brown, which knocked him out of the play, and after that Brown stopped Daniel Sorensen in his tracks as he raced previous him. The 78-yard rating brings Philadelphia within 3.

Lions all over Bears

The Lions are getting their disappointment from recently’s frustrating loss to the Panthers on their NFC North competitor. Jared Goff has almost as lots of goals (3) as incompletions (4), while D’Andre Swift has actually discovered completion zone two times (one hurrying, one getting) as Detroit is battering on the Bears.

Danny Dimes BALLIN’

What a distinction a year makes. Last season, Daniel Jones did not carry out all right for the brand-new Giants brass to get his fifth-year choice. He’s given that had the very best project of his profession, and he’s been outstanding as New York tries to beat the Colts and make the playoffs for the very first time given that 2016. In addition for going 19 of 24 for 177 passing backyards and a goal, he’s included 91 backyards on the ground and another 2 ratings as the thrashing is on at Metlife Stadium.

Poor Kendall Fuller. The Commanders cornerback idea Amari Cooper was going to cut within after capturing the fast out. Instead, Cooper stopped on a penny, turned outdoors and left the diving Fuller in the dust as he galloped down the left sideline for the 46-yard goal.

Michigan might not finish the job in the College Football Playoff semifinal on Saturday night, however previous Wolverine Aidan Hutchinson has actually been providing all year for the Lions on Sundays. Not just do his 7.5 sacks lead all novices, however he’s now connected for the most interceptions amongst linebackers/defensive ends in the whole NFL after choosing off Justin Fields on the last play of the very first half. It’s been a dominant novice project for the No. 2 general choice.

21-play drive!

Two weeks after the Steelers went on a 21-play TD drive versus the Panthers, the Commanders matched that with a 21-play, 96-yard drive that demolished MORE THAN 11 MINUTES of video game time. On fourth-and-goal, Carson Wentz offseted his 2 first-half interceptions by reaching the ball over the objective line for the consent rating.

Landon Collins, a previous three-time Pro Bowler with the Giants, re-signed with New York in early October and has actually rapidly made his existence felt. No play was more vital than this one, as Collins leapt the fast out path, obstructed the pass from Nick Foles and took it 52 backyards to your home.

Jags all over Texans

This video game suggests next to absolutely nothing for the Jaguars, however they’re still playing as if their playoff lives are on the line. After JaMycal Hasty discovered completion zone on Jacksonville’s opening drive, fellow running back Travis Etienne doubled that benefit with a 62-yard burst and after that Tyson Campbell added 6 more with his fumble return for a goal. It’s been all Jaguars in the opening thirty minutes.

Panthers and Bucs trade TDs

The Panthers leapt out to a two-goal lead with Sam Darnold’s touchdown to D.J. Moore, however with their backs versus the wall, Tom Brady talked to his preferred receiver, Mike Evans, for a 63-yard rating that cut the deficit in half.

Chiefs careless with the ball

Not typically do you see the Chiefs beat themselves, however their sloppiness has actually permitted the Broncos, who quit 51 points on Christmas Day versus the Rams, to go on in the 2nd quarter. First Patrick Mahomes tossed a red-zone interception to Justin Simmons, and after the defense required a punt, Kadarius Toney coughed the ball up to offer Denver the ball right back. On the next play, Russell Wilson turned back the clock 5 years as his 16-yard scuttle put his group ahead.

TDs & backflips

Tyreek Hill is the king of post-touchdown balancings, so it’s not unexpected he placed on a program after taking the bubble screen 2 backyards into completion zone versus the Patriots.

But how about Richie James? The Giants WR supplied some theatrics of his own after scoring the consent goal versus the Colts.

Catch of the day candidate

Did not believe any Colts would remain in contention for this after how Nick Foles looked versus the Chargers on “Monday Night Football,” however Parris Campbell revealed his contested-catch capability on this great grab with 3 Giants in close distance. His 49-yard snag established an Indianapolis basket.

Saints (really gradually) march down field

The Saints’ really slim playoff possibilities begin with beating the NFC-leading Eagles, and they’re off to a terrific start in Philadelphia. New Orleans got the opening kickoff and instantly marched 75 backyards in 15 plays, draining pipes almost 9 minutes while doing so. Even much better, the belongings ended with a goal from Taysom Hill from one backyard out.

Justin Fields can’t be stopped

Fields, currently probably the very best running quarterback in the NFL, is when again controling on the ground. He’s currently duped runs of 31 and 60 backyards and has actually discussed 100 backyards hurrying … in the very first quarter! Fields’ most current radiance moves him into 2nd location in single-season hurrying backyards for a quarterback, tracking just Lamar Jackson (1,206) from 2019.

Rough start for Wentz

Starting his very first video game given that Week 6, Carson Wentz not did anything to recommend he’ll be an upgrade over the errant yet effective Taylor Heinicke. First pass from Wentz, insufficient. Second pass, obstructed by Denzel Ward. Just a late toss from Wentz, which permitted Ward to cut in front of Terry McLaurin to protect the turnover.

Mahomes to Mahomes

When balls get deflected back to quarterbacks, they generally attempt and knock them down so they do not get obstructed. Mahomes is not most quarterbacks, so he captured his own deflected pass and ran for 6 backyards on the Chiefs’ opening drive, which ended in a Isiah Pacheco goal.

Fields on the … pitch?

Yes, you check out that right. On third-and-1 from around midfield, tight end Cole Kmet motioned under center, took the breeze and after that pitched it to Justin Fields, who appeared like a Pro Bowl running back as he browsed his method 31 backyards deep into Lions area. Three plays later on, Fields returned the favor by striking Kmet for a 13-yard goal to open the scoring.

Panthers strike initially! 

The exact same Panthers who fired their head coach and traded their star RB are still in the hunt for a playoff area, and they’re off to a terrific start versus the Buccaneers. Sam Darnold, who has actually accepted the game-manager function for run-focused Carolina, did some severe damage with his arm on the opening drive, striking D.J. Moore for 26 backyards, Shi Smith for 11 more, Laviska Shenault Jr. for 6 and lastly Tommy Tremble for the 17-yard rating.

Unlikely playoff-deciding matches

Let’s start by stating Bills-Bengals is the video game of the weekend — and possibly among the very best of the whole season. And that’s not unexpected based upon preseason expectations. Buffalo has actually been the Super Bowl preferred almost every day given that Super Bowl LVI, while Cincinnati brought a lots of momentum into 2022 after its unexpected go to almost hosting the Lombardi Trophy. Cherish this upcoming “Monday Night Football” match, due to the fact that the leading video games getting in the season do not constantly turn out. 

Case and point: the rest of Week 17. The 3 essential video games on the slate are Jets-Seahawks, Buccaneers-Panthers and Dolphins-Patriots. By this point, the majority of would have most likely believed New York and Seattle were removed and Tampa Bay was completing for the No. 1 seed in the NFC — not its own rank department. Elsewhere, the Giants and Commanders are seeking to secure playoff areas versus a set of preseason playoff hopefuls, the Colts and the Browns, respectively, while the Packers are wanting to keep their postseason hopes alive versus the Vikings — an idea that would have sounded in reverse in July.

The NFL is terrific due to the fact that it’s unforeseeable in many methods, which unpredictability has actually yielded some huge Week 17 face-offs. They’re simply not the ones you believed you were visiting.
