Well that was a nice treat. A trio of playoff implication games on Saturday that showed who really is ready to move forward.
Jameis Winston plays all kinds of ugly. From the 2 INTs he had to start the game, it looked like it was going to be a Texas beating. But boy did he impress, tossing large to tie the game heading into the half.
DeShaun Watson was chased all over the field, as Jason Pierre-Paul rattled DW all night.
The Texans ultimately prevailed, but not without some lingering questions moving forward.
The Titans have ample ammo now to find those weak holes in the armour of the Texans.
Ready to play yet JJ?
The Patriots do it again.
Despite Julian Edelman being banged up, he was able to find numerous holes in the Bills coverage to make some great plays.
The Bills & Josh Allen didn’t let up-fighting back for scores & respect as they managed to keep this a tight game.
More importantly, the Patriots demonstrated their roadmap to the finals, executing a patient & effective play set of progression.
They used the run & roll outs in equal measure to score & keep the pressure on.
Their D kept gunning after Josh Allen, creating loads of frustration & wasted 3rd downs.
Full credit to the Bills for a close game, but they’ll need to really elevate their play if they get a pop at the Pats again.
The Rams were in full battering mode, as they choked out the Niners attempts to get the ball moving.
They would eventually lose to a last minute kick by Robbie Gould to eliminate the Rams & push the 49ers further into the playoffs.
The game was very somber however, as Niners backup QB C.J. Beathard was dealing with the loss of his brother, who was tragically stabbed in a bar earlier.
The team was able to rally despite the sadness, & constant pressure of the Rams D.
The 49ers have left themselves exposed as of late, & will really need to find that extra gear if they want to have a chance of shutting down the big NFC guns.
