With only 6 more weeks left in the NFL regular season (and 3 in your fantasy), it’s starting to look like some teams might emerge from this seasonal sludge to move on to a successful post season.
It also looks like that there are a few teams that have the potential to ruin another teams run just by their very nature of play.
Looking at you Colts and Eagles.
So join us, as we take a look at some Week 12 Reflections.
It certainly looks like the season might be over for the Steelers, after taking a heavy beating from the division rivals Bengals on Sunday.
Puffy Big Ben struggled to get it down the field, and the much vaunted defence may have lost TJ Watt for a few more games.
Pittsburgh has struggled to play with any vigor as of late, dropping its second in the series to Cincy, and it looks like they are ready to limp off to the offseason.
Baker Mayfield has been playing like an anus of late, most likely due to injuries that have plagued the QB for weeks.
There’s nothing to be gained from Baker ‘toughening’ it out, as he’s not tough, and not a hockey player.
The more that Cleveland allows Baker to suit up despite his myriad of injuries, the more likely that their experiment with Mayfield looks in doubt.
Let’s see if a Bye week fixes this situation, or if the Browns will continue to slide.
Russ is Cooked
Have you ever microwaved your food to much and seen the result?
This is what this season is feeling like in Seattle.
Russell Wilson looks tired, the O Line seems to have checked out, and Pete Carroll might be just calling it in, as the Seahawks took another lump, this time at the hands of the Washington Football Team.
Either Russ or Pete needs to go in Seattle, but maybe, it could be both of them.
The Rams continue to slide, after getting bitch smacked by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Something is wrong with Matt Stafford, as he seems to have lost some of that zip on the ball, even with the addition of OBJ.
The Packers were totally in control in this game, despite lacking some key O line personnel.
If LA can’t beat Green Bay when they’re down a few men, how would they be able to face them in the post season with a fully functional squad?
Sean McVay had some truly horrific play calling on Sunday, if you want to know where to start posting the blame.
Superman is back! Superman got benched!
The Carolina Panthers were playing ok before they brought in Cam Newton a few weeks ago, now it looks to be going all downhill again.
Cam was horrible on Sunday, throwing awful passes downfield that were rightfully picked off as garbage.
Add to that was that the often injured Christian McCaffery was injured again.
And with that, the only thing that the Panthers have left to play for is that D…which will now probably also fall apart.
Who are the Minnesota Vikings this year?
A team that can beat the Packers one week, and then get stuffed by the 49ers the next.
Whoever the Vikes are this season. the one thing that they are not are playoff contenders.
Dalvin Cook is now out for the season, leaving the Vikings to try to cobble together some wins with a skeleton crew of Mattison etc.
Minnesota still has the ability to upset a lot of the main contenders heading into the post season, which sometimes, can be just as exciting.
