Top 10 Most Surprising NFL Teams of Week 16 (2019)‘‘Twas The Week Before Christmas and all through the NFL world not a creature was stirring but something was stirring. The playoffs were coming they’d be here in a flash. So Teams across the league came together for a clash. Some took care of business and got a win. Others may need a little more help to get in. With the playoffs on their way. Who made the best decision on game day? (Did you like my little poem?)
The Top Ten
Arizona is pretty bad and just like the Niners against the Falcons last week Seattle falls for a trap game. Larry Fitzgerald and Kenyan Drake both had big games to dent Seattle’s chances at a first round bye. At the same time they also ruin their own tank. But at least there’s a semblance of hope and life in the desert
I know it doesn't matter for the NFC West title, but this made me extremely happy as a 49ers fan.
Jets Why are we trying? You should be TANKING! Instead Le’Veon Bell threw a dagger in his former team’s playoff chances while also throwing a dagger in their own tank at the same time. Congratulations you’ve Buttfumbled the tank. Everyone Loses
I think the Steelers forgot who was playing which role this season. It's the Jets who are tanking.
Philly you needed that win and the fact they held Dallas to under 10 points is shocking. They knew this game was do or die. And they survived. Don’t celebrate yet Philly you haven’t won it yet but a huge step closer. To be fair Dak was having trouble with an injury but still the Eagles bottled up Zeke and Sidney Jones came up clutch to seal the deal
I didn't see this result coming. I hope they beat the Giants.
Dallas you had the opportunity to win the division and end the madness on your biggest rivals home turf. Instead you lay a dud. Zeke couldn’t do anything and Dak was struggling all game long. You’re not dead left but you need help. Congratulations you guys get more questions to surround Jason Garrett. That’s the type of game you have to win. Jerry isn’t happy with that. You know how to not end up here? Not underachieving in half your games
Seattle you thought you had an easy game but you would be mistaken. Arizona May be bad but they have some potential. The Seahawks looked flat all game long and they may very well have just cost themselves a bye. Next week you get San Francisco. Good luck with that
Steelers you had one job. Don’t lose and you’re fine. The Jets has other plans and The Injuries hit hard. James Conner is out again and so is Rudolph. That’s fine you have Duck Hodges right? Well turns out that he’s had a bit of a rough stretch. Tennessee has taken over and now you have to beat Baltimore next week and have Tennessee lose No pressure
Rams had to have this win to save their playoff hopes on life support. They had the lead but the Niners would lead a game winning drive to eliminate the Rams. Congratulations guys you have been eliminated. You know how not to end up here? If you don’t lose to Dallas
Oh so now you show up when it’s a week too late? Nyheim Hines balled out and the Colts never let off the Gas. Too bad it doesn’t matter now. If only you didn’t lose to oh I don’t know Miami, Tampa Tennessee Oakland etc
Hey Bears fans are you tired of the Comparisons between Mahomes and Trubisky? No? Good because you’re gonna be hearing a lot more of them. The Chiefs showed no mercy to you at Soldier Field. That offense was a whole lot of nothing against a surprisingly solid defense. I thought they would at least do something but that’s just not the case.
Oh Panthers you better hope that’s the worst of Will Grier. Talk about Cam’s replacement well he threw 3 interceptions in his first game. Good luck with your QB carousel. Who do you play? Grier? Allen? Newton? Or none of the above? And you need a head coach. Fun times in Carolina
