The Grail - NFL Week 15 Recap
December 19, 2018
Chargers 29 | Chiefs 28 – Phillip Rivers has another heroic comeback and defeats Mahomes in KC, now a true MVP candidate. KC starting to show some signs of weakness.
Texans 29 | Jets 22 – No surprise here, Watson and Hopkins thrive against a stingy Jets D. Texans now a 2 seed in the AFC.
Browns 17 | Broncos 16 – More 4th quarter magic from Baker…Interim HC Greg Williams has more wins this season than Hue Jackson had in his career at Cleveland.
Titans 17 | Giants 0 – Derrick Henry goes for 170 / 2 TD’s and officially ends all hopes in NY. Who will be the quarterback for the Gmen in 2019…..Eli, Flacco, Carr, draft selection??? Offseason should be fun.
Redskins 16 | Jaguars 13 – The Josh Johnson era has begun in Washington, and the Skins defense is still stout. Jax continues to get ready for next year’s draft. Jalen Ramsey sounds off again, time to trade?
Packers 17 | Bears 24 – Chicago finally gets a win over Aaron Rodgers and the Pack. Eddie Jackson and the Bears D continue to make plays. Promising post season on the horizon.
Lions 13 | Bills 14 – Josh Allen impresses in the air and on the ground….is Stafford still the guy in Detroit?
Buccaneers 12 | Ravens 20 – Lamar Jackson is the franchise and leading Baltimore to a possible playoff run…saving John Harbaugh’s job.
Cardinals 14 | Falcons 40 – Rosen….ugh. We will never be able to figure out the Atlanta Falcons.
Raiders 16 | Bengals 30 – Oakland’s draft position improves (good for Raider fans)…Joe Mixon is a workhorse. Will Marvin Lewis finally get the boot after the season?
Dolphins 17 | Vikings 41 – Minnesota back on track, Dalvin Cook impressive with 2 TD’s. Firing DeFilippo may have been a smart move by head coach, Mike Zimmer. Back to reality for Miami…
Cowboys 0 | Colts 23 – Dallas lays a goose egg, first time since 2003. Dak exposed, Zeke frustrated. Colts continue to play at a high level. Hats off to Frank Reich.
Seahawks 23 | 49ers 26 (OT) – San Fran’s 10 game skid is snapped vs Seattle. Kyle Shanahan is winning and doing things with hardly anything on the roster….quietly top 5 coach in the NFL.
Patriots 10 | Steelers 17 – Time to be concerned in Foxboro? Pivotal win for Pittsburgh, huge performance by Steelers D, playoff hope still alive.
Eagles 30 | Rams 23 – Nick Foles, the hero and savior of Philadelphia, is back. Can he run the table again and into the playoffs? The Rams are struggling…banged up, poor defense, and opponents have figured the McVay/Goff Fairytale out.
Saints 12 | Panthers 9 – A defensive battle where the Saint D proved it’s ready for the playoffs. Cam Newton and the Panthers remain to be the most confusing topic in the NFL…
