What another wild penultimate ending to the NFL as we cruise even further towards the playoffs.
With some truly bizarre incidents that went down, we offer some week 17 thoughts on the whole shebang.
What can you say about what happened with Antonio Brown? In a truly sad meltdown in the third quarter against the Jets, AB took off his shirt and quit football.
A public mental health breakdown spiralled into AB leaving the Bucs and the NFL.
Whatever it was that transpired in the game, the selfish shutdown of his team was felt in shock as we all witnessed a collapse under pressure.
As Tom Brady said, now is the time to feel empathy for Antonio Brown, and he’s a grown man who needs to own up to his feelings and responsibilities.
Tom Brady took an early punch to his beautiful chin as the Jets took a quick lead against the stunned Bucs.
He then had to watch in disbelief in the meltdown of AB, a guy he vouched for, stayed at his house, played with his kids.
TB12 did what he does, delivering a last minute knockout to the Jets, and offering perhaps the classiest and touching take on the AB situation. Be nice, and leave him alone.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers won again, beating another depleted team at home and securing a spot in the cheddar tundra.
Making it look easy against a Cousins-less squad, Green Bay only have the plucky Lions left in a final fun blowout.
All this to lose in the NFC final.
Jamar Chase is just awesome. The rookie blasted his way to another Sunday of stats, making any fantasy final a blowout thanks to his crazy day.
Leaping over last seasons’ rookie Jefferson, Chase was a beast this season in fantasy points and looks to do the same heading into the post season.
Chase and Burrow are truly going to put on a smoke show heading into the playoffs.
Was it that the Bears were awesome or that the Giants truly do suck, as Chicago Bears romped to a Nagy-happy win on Sunday.
The Bears put up 29 points, but the win really went to the D, who absolutely trounced poor Mike Glennon and the hapless Gmen.
Chicago had a really bad season thanks to injuries, coaching and coaching through injuries, so hopefully the owners will steer the ship in the right direction.
Your friend from Bawstawn is loud on the Sam Adams again, as the Patriots are once again headed to the playoffs looking like a threat.
Sure, they beat the Jags who suck harder than a gas station vacuum, but by putting 50 points on the legs of 2 running backs, New England is solid again.
No one is going to want to face the Patriots the first round, but they won’t have the legs to vomit all the way to the finish line.
Matt Stafford and the Rams continue to look average, as he has been completing more passes to his D than he does to his receivers.
Sean Mcvay should be nervous, as his only game plan is to rely on the legs of Sony Michel. The Rams have been iffy since they lost Robert Woods, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get better.
How bout dem Saints? New Orleans put up an easy win over the ruined Panthers.
Taysom Hill was able to eek out a low scoring win as the Saints look to snag one of the last playoff spots of the season.
It’s the Saints D that really is the difference here, as them with the solid legs of Kamara could really put a dent in one of the first rounds if they can get the slot.
