Week 15 recap

leave a comment »

Week 15 is over and two more teams have clinched a division title, the Houston Texans, New England Patriots, and the Denver Broncos have clinched a division title so far for the AFC, and the Baltimore Ravens have gotten a playoff spot as well. In the NFC the Atlanta Falcons and the Green bay Packers have also been given a division title of their own, and the San Fransisco 49ers have gotten themselves a playoff spot as well.

The Indianapolis Colts played against the number one team in the AFC, the Houston Texans. Now this was a very difficult game and though Colts fans had hope that the Colts would win the game, alas it was not to be as the Texans won 29-17 despite the Colts efforts. The Minnesota Vikings played against the St. Louis Rams and with the help of Adrian Peterson they won 36-22.

Surprising wins:

  • Though the win was not very surprising the end score was, the Atlanta Falcons beat the New York Giants 34-0. I would have at least expected the Giants to put up some sort of fight, but then again they were without their best runner.
  • The New Orleans Saints beat the Tampa Bay Buccanears 41-0. This came as a surprise because the Saints were not doing very well and them they come out here and shut out the Bucs.
  • The San Fransisco 49ers beat the New England Patriots 41-34. The 49ers seemed to have controlled the game from the start, and even led the game 31-3 at one point.

So far 12 teams have been eliminated from the playoffs, but the three of the rookie QB s have a chance at going into the playoffs, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins, and Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. These rookies have shown that they can not only throw, but run when needed. They have surprised and surpassed peoples expectations for them.

This year the fight to the Superbowl is going to be one of the hardest ones and anyone of these teams could win.
