New York Jets
The only thing the Jets care about is a win and in situation but yet again like the last 6 years ,Rex Ryan stands in the way of that happening. This time he is not in Jet green but rather he is in bills blue? Either way I get the feeling he will stop them once again! But this Jets team is dangerous with no glaring holes and with a very solid Defense. If they get in, they could do some damage.
Green Bay Packers
Even though they looked like poo against the Cardinals, they are still playoff bound and if the win in Lambeau against the Vikings this Sunday, they will win the NFC North.
The Steelers chances of making the playoffs diminished significantly with their loss to the Ravens. They are now hoping the Jets will lose to the Bills and they defeat the Browns. They will be kicking themselves this off-season if they don’t make the playoffs because of the bad game against the Ravens.
According to ESPN.com, “Kirk Cousins leads the NFL in completion percentage (69.7).” I should just end it there. I haven’t heard any talk about RG3 in a while. He looked really good against Philly (except his nonsensical kneel down at half time). And this week he gets a chance to send Dallas into the off-season crying.
The Lions are surging, just a little too late to really matter. The thumped San Fran last week and this week they take on the rival Bears in a game that really doesn't matter.
New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees is a stud, period. The Saints won at Jacksonville 38-27, with a 400+ yard passing day from Brees. With a torn Labrum. In his throwing shoulder. THAT is NFL-tough and from an unlikely source. They aren’t heading to the playoffs but face off against the Falcons this week, hoping to catch them napping after their emotional win against the Panthers last week.
Tampa Bay Bucs
This team is making noise even if they fell short of playoff contention last week, losing to a surprising Chicago Bears team. For his NFL season finale, rookie QB Jameis Winston draws the unenviable task of travelling to Charlotte to try to hand the Panthers their second loss of the season, and the Panthers should be on the prowl as they play for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. BIG feather in Winston’s cap if he can go to Charlotte and win against a team that is likely very angry and looking to beat down the Bucs and lock up home field throughout the playoffs.
New York Giants
The Giants are a tough one to figure out. They take the Panthers to the brink, then they just stink. I'll leave it there.
