Most Surprising NFL Teams of Week 17 (2019)Well here we are the final week of another NFL season. As playoffs approach some teams have little to play for and rested their starters teams like the Ravens, Texans, Vikings, and so on. The field is almost set but we still have a few spots left to be decided
Dolphins had literally nothing to play for and they were on the road in Foxborough. playing the Patriots. They should have lost but instead they kept it close. Almost too close. Then as the clock was ticking down Ryan Fitzpatrick made some FitzMagic and led a game winning touchdown drive to beat the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Yes this happened. Miami May have just ruined their own tank but today we can forgive them for the Evil Empire has been defeated. And even better they knocked the Pats from the 2 spot so yes they have to play in the wild card game. Miami we cannot thank you enough
Um guys what was that? So much for an easy win am I right? Can we talk about how un- Patriot like the Patriots have been? Father Time May have finally caught up to Brady. We've seen the Patriots look off late in the season but pick it up in the playoffs. But I just don't know. Brady looks to have reached the 2015 Peyton Manning stage of his career. I don't want to say anything about the dynasty being over because everyone said they were finished last year and they win the Super Bowl again but they have looked off even for Patriots standards. Their defense is good but when the offense can't do anything it's harder for them.
Stop me if you've heard this before. The Packers can't piece together a 60 minute game and play down to their competition in the Lions who are god awful. The Packers should have beat the hell out of Detroit but good ol Aaron Rodgers was able to bail them out yet again. Oh and they have a bye as well. I don't know with a performance like that something tells me they're frauds. Prove me wrong
Ah yes two teams with nothing to play for. Both sides were underwhelming on offense but the Jets do just enough to win. Congratulations you beat a Bills team that had no motive to win this game.
Cincy has already won the Tank Bowl so why not close out with a win? Yes the Bungles were able to win this final week against a Browns team obviously frustrated with their season. I think it's funny they pulled off the upset I don't know it's hilarious that they beat the Browns who are better on paper. Good job guys
So this game literally means nothing and Jacksonville just beat up on Indy who simply rolled over and died. Jacksonville got a win and what could possibly be the end of the Sacksonville era. At least you have Gardner Minshew? You'll also get Doug Marrone and Dave Caldwell back. It's almost like 2017 was a mirage and you've learned nothing
In what was a disappointing year from the start it ends with that. A loss to the Bungles in a meaningless game. All that hype and for what 6 wins? Considering how weak the AFC was the Browns should honestly have made the playoffs. Especially with all that talent
Cleveland do you like cleaning house? Good because Freddie Kitchens and now John Dorsey are out. It's not like you haven't rebuilt every 2 years or anything how pathetic
Tampa is a very interesting team. I've said it before and I'll say it again Jamies has potential to be amongst the elite. Only if he stops with the interceptions. What's the point of all those yards if he turns it over so often. Jamies congratulations you have joined 30 for 30. He has 30 Touchdowns and 30 interceptions. How fitting that their season ends on a pick 6?
Oakland had to have this game to even have a chance at the playoffs. Of course they roll over and die. Denver wasn't that great either as Oakland was still in the game. They would score at the end of regulation and go for 2 when a point ties the game. I guess Gruden wanted to end it in regulation. Oh they ended it alright. They ended it with an L and a side of elimination. I'm more surprised that it took this long to officially eliminate the Raiders. That goes to show how bad the AFC really is. Congratulations Raiders way to give the middle finger to the city of Oakland and the fanbase.
Seattle had almost all their offensive weapons on IR it seemed. Yet they brought Beast Mode Back. The fact that they managed to come back and were mere inches away from winning it all is amazing. Especially considering that they had a ton of injuries just incredible.
