Happy 2022 NFL in London fans! Did you have a cracking start to the new year, or has it all been a confusing jumbly mess, like last week in the NFL?
To commemorate the start of a new annum, we look back at the insane week 17 in our New Tears podcast.
Wade & Ryan look back at all of the wild and wacky week that was 17 in the NFL.
In a selfish, meltdown moment, AB lost the ply, jumping up and down in the end zone in the Bucs comeback against the Jets.
Team-mates were quick to interject that AB needs compassion for his mental health at the moment, and that he would no longer play for the team or the NFL.
AB came back to say that the team was drugging him through injuries, and he in no way felt in any condition to play. So he jumped up and down on his ankle in the end zone.
None of this makes sense, but what is becoming apparent is that TB12 has a lot of work and glue to use to get this Tampa Bay team back on track.
In a teary goodbye game, Big Ben said goodbye to the Pittsburgh faithful in a home win against the sad sack Browns.
An emotional victory for Ben, as he waddles off into rehab pool of retirement-despite his Steelers technically in contention for a playoff spot.
Trying to steal some of that retirement thunder was Baker Mayfield, who also quietly kind of retired on Sunday.
After Ben’s tear-jerking goodbye to the Steel City, Baker jumped into say that he is now done for the season, after playing through so many injuries.
Fans know that he should have NOT have tried playing through injuries, but that he also might not be back in Cleveland next season.
Jamaar Chase exploded last week, putting up over 40 points in some leagues with an epic demonstration versus the Chiefs touted D.
Breaking Justin Jefferson’s rookie record from the year before, the tandem of Burrow and Chase has been absolutely electric heading into the post season.
WFT has slowly been erasing all traces of ‘Redskins’ from their records, they made an announcement this week that they will finally be changing their official name in February this year.
Internet sleuths were quick to check domain registrations for potential team names, and low and behold the Washington Admirals pointed back to the team.
Is this the new name? Looks like it.
The NY Giants took a beating from the Bears D in week 17, and limped off into to the post season with way more questions than answers.
The head coach has to go, the QB might need to be traded, and star running back Barkley might have more injury weeks ahead than playing weeks.
Both New York teams were horrible this year, but at least the Jets showed some signs of life, and have impressed with loads of rookies stepping up.
NFL Playoffs are coming up, and we will be working with the Sports Bar & Grill to promote them.
COVID has been another kick in the nutters, with many bars still struggling with consistent numbers and government information.
You can help by booking tickets ahead of time, so that the bar knows how many people to prepare for.
Book here for the Sports Bar & Grill Old Street and Clapham, so that we know what dates to expect you.
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.

What a wild wicked week in the NFL as COVID, injuries, winter and Christmas all had a kick at the league.
Could things get worse for week 16? Who knows?
Hold my beer, as Wade & Ryan break down their week 16 picks in this Santa’s Slay podcast.
If you’ve made it thus far in your fantasy season, congrats!
If you’re already out of your league, no worries…you have another 10 months until the season kicks off again.
Among some of the games Wade & Ryan look at in this podcast, includes:
Cleveland steams into week 16 with loads of of issues and plenty of room to screw up.
Baker’s play has been as bad as his acting, with the Browns struggling to make anything happen in another dismal year.
Aaron Rodgers is on his farewell toe tour, watching his MVP chances slip away the more airtime that he gives to Pat Mcafee.
Despite all of this, Rodgers keeps the Packers in the hunt, only to eventually tank in the NFC championship.
A-Aron should continue his winning ways here, as the Browns have been a stinky butthole all season.
Ryan and Wade both think that 8 points is a bit of stretch given that the Browns have quite a few players returning form injury.
Ryan-Packers 26 Browns 23
Wade- Packers 28 Browns 24
The Rams continue to trudge towards the playoffs, losing players to COVID and injury along the way. Stafford is trying to carry the team on his bad back, but it’s the defence that has been providing the glue in the tight games.
The Vikings are pains in the butts for many teams. Despite not being good enough to go all the way, they are good enough to play havoc with some of the better teams in the league.
They have enough talent to rip seams in the fabric of better teams, and ruin their chances of spotless playoff play.
Wade is big on the Vikes on this one, as they always play games close, and add a bit of flavour to the proceedings.
Ryan agrees with Wade’s passionate prediction, making both guys big on Minnesota on Sunday.
Wade- Vikings 30 Rams 28
Ryan- Vikings 30 Rams 27
Weather this game will be close or not, should be down to the wind, after the last contest was a freeze out.
Mac Jones was perfect in his 3 passes, as Bill Belichick continues to lead penalty free football into the post season. The Patriots will be lucky to face the same Buffalo team, who started to adapt to Bellicose Bill in the second half.
Buffalo needs this win like a wing needs sauce. Dry rubbing their skin into the playoffs isn’t a good idea, as they continue to slide down the ranks of playoff potential.
Ryan is big on Buffalo this weekend, and has all the faith in Josh Allen to thwart the pugnacious Pats in a tight Sunday.
Wade agrees, and thinks this the chance for Buffalo to right the ship into the clear harbour.
Ryan-Bills 24 Patriots 20
Wade- Bills 21 Patriots 18
Ditch your family this weekend and join us at the Sports Bar & Grill Old Street and Clapham to watch all the games.
While the pubs will be closed on Christmas Day, they will be open bright and early Boxing Day for you to get your butts into seats.
Soccer will be on during the day, giving way to the glorious NFL games kicking off at 1pm.
Book your seats in here!
We’re hitting that time of the Christmas holidays where we start to lose track of days.
Has Santa come yet? Was I good? Is COVID still a thing? Is it too early to drink? Is it too early to be drunk?
So many questions, and not enough answers.
Luckily, we are headed into a Sweet Week 16 of games.
Week 15 came in like unwanted holiday in-laws, making a big production and staying way longer than anticipated.
‘Get the heck out 15, I’ve got playoffs and Fantasy Pool playoffs on tap.
Stop bothering us with your nonsense.’
That nonsense is once again COVID, which crashed through the NFL party table like a member of the Bills Mafia, and looks ready to make another run at the table.
Go home COVID, you’re drunk!
Week 15 taught us a lot of other things like…
-Tom Brady acts like a little bitch when you shut him out
-Jared Goff can still ball…it just takes 15 weeks to warm up.
-The Packers look to chump out of the NFC race despite leading it
-The Bears still suck
-The Bills are contenders…just not winners.
Luckily, we have some great games on tap for Week 16 in the NFL.
Among some of the more exciting things we are looking forward to for these matches is:
Boxing Day in Britain is a historic occasion of sport, ever since Kris Kringle knocked out Neville Chamberlain in the 30s’.
Brits get up early to shake off that Crimbo hangover, and heading down to the pub for an afternoon of sport.
Luckily this year, the NFL is also rocking loads of Boxing Day games.
If you’re joining us at the Sports Bar & Grill Clapham or Old Street, make sure you book a table now so that you can watch the games on your own screen!
Thursday Night Football is a tough one for us Brits, as the games don’t kick off until 1:20am, with a slumbering finish of around 4am.
It’s the holidays and you have our COVID pass to stay at home, and watch this great TNF match on week 16.
The Titans host the fast moving San Francisco 49ers, who have been chunking up wins a plenty over the past few weeks, positioning them to be 3.5 point faves for the game.
The Derek Henry-less Titans are going that he makes a return, and allows them to continuing to punish other teams with the run, given that their wide receiver corps has been blown out by injuries.
The Green Bay Packers host a dilapidated Cleveland Browns team on Christmas Day for a 9:30pm GMT game.
The Packers opened the line as 8 point favourites, which seems fair given that the Browns were missing most of their defence in a Monday Night loss to the Raiders.
Aaron Rodgers will be sure to point out his turf toe en route to tossing 4 TDS and taking advantage of another team ripped apart during this season
Another great Christmas game sees the Colts visiting the Arizona Cardinals, who have a home favourite line of 1.5 points.
Kyler and the boys took a beating at the hands last week of the lowly Dee-Troy-it Lions.
Indianapolis rolled over the Patriots in Week 15, and it seems likely that Jonathan Taylor will have another big Christmas Day of Ho Ho Ho’ing.
Loads of great games on tap for Week 16 Boxing Day games.
Put on your jammie pants, crack some morning beers, or join us in London!
Some of the key game we are looking at includes:
The Lions are high on pride after an upset win over the top seeded Cardinals in Week 15. They look to take a bite out of Atlanta Falcons who are favoured at home in this contest by 4.
Is Jared Goff enough? The way his team is playing…yes!
The battle of the AFC North reaches its pinnacle on Sunday, as the Bengals host the Ravens in an early afternoon game.
The Ravens enter Week 16 as 2.5-point underdogs with the moneyline currently listed at about +120. Odds from https://www.sportsbettingdime.com/
This will be a massive game with big implications, and both teams will need to play off their heads to grab the division lead.
A healthy Lamar Jackson can change a game with his feet, and how about the hot slinging JT Huntley?
This game will be epic!
Belichick will be channeling the dark force, as he hopes to snag a divisional win against the struggling Buffalo Bills.
Buffalo fans will be nervously watching this one, and sending as much bad karma Boston’s way all day.
The Patriots opened the line as 2.5 point favourites at home.
The battle for the AFC isn’t as illustrious as it once was, as Pittsburgh slumps away from the post season with a limp Big Ben.
Patrick Mahomes isn’t as flash as he was in previous years, but is till hoping he can make some home magic despite losing Travis Kielce in this contest.
If you’re looking to watch these week 16 games, feel free to join us at the Sports Bar & Grill Old Street and Clapham Junction.
It will be a busy weekend of sport ahead, so make sure that you book your table, so that you can watch the games on your own TV.
