Seahawks Week 15 Recap

 

 

By Shannon Sanchez//@ShannonSanchez3

Rams 42 – Seahawks 7

With the Seattle Seahawks bogged down in injuries, fans were concerned about today’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.

As of halftime today, 12’s have to come to the conclusion that there is no more home-field advantage when the majority of the Seahawks All-Pro players are on injured reserve or out of the game.  After the disastrous ending of last week’s game, the concern centered on the defense.

With both linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright leaving the game with injuries, the conversation was whether either one or both would be able to play.   Earlier in the week, there was the threat of suspensions on defensive ends Michael Bennett, Sheldon Richardson and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson.  Although Seattle lost Wright for the game having not cleared concussion protocol, everyone else was available for the game. On the offensive side, everyone was relatively healthy.

It was announced this morning that Marvin Lewis will be stepping down as the Bengals Head Coach at the end of the season, on his own accord.    Coach Lewis has been with the Bengals since 2003.  The second longest coaching tenure of current NFL coaches.  Only the Patriots Bill Belichick has been with his current team longer. Before then, he was defensive coordinator with the Redskins.

Week 15 Detroit Lions Pride Report

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Lions 20 – Bears 10

The Lions have owned the Bears in the past few years.  But when it’s a division rival, it’s different.   Back in week 11 when they played in Chicago,  running back Jordan Howard had 125 yards rushing and the Bears jumped out to a 10-0 lead.  The Lions finally got their act together and won the game. This game was different. The Lions came out and scored right away. Yes, it was a field goal, but it was something.

The Lions have had slow starts these past few games.  Early scoring was a good thing. The Lions just about pitched a shutout during the first half, only allowing a field goal by at the end of the half. The Lions drastically improved their run defense this game by only allowing 43 rushing yards.  In Week 11, they gave up 222 yards rushing. Quarterback Matthew Stafford was able to make very impressive plays against a tough Bears defense. The most impressive was a 2nd quarter pass to wide receiver Marvin Jones, Jr.

The good, the sad and the records. Broncos vs Colts.

Official Denver Broncos Reporter

Broncos 25 – Colts 13

The Thursday night football game between the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts was a win for the Broncos, but it wasn’t all good for Denver.

Let’s start with the sad. I’ve never been a fan of quarterback Trevor Siemian as a starter. I think former head coach Gary Kubiak projected himself onto Siemian and elevated him beyond his talents. Playing experience, plus practice prowess and a Peyton Manning endorsement, ended up helping him win over yet another head coach. He shouldn’t have been given more than four games last season. With that said, it was a sad way to end this year like he did.

Bills Emerge From the Snow Drifts Back in a Wild Card Spot

Bills 13 – Colts 7 (OT)

 

So, you may have heard, we had a little snow for the Bills/Colts game last Sunday.

For those unfamiliar with the white stuff, what you saw on TV is what is called a lake-effect snowstorm. It occurs when a cold air mass picks up moisture by passing over a large body of warm water, like a lake. Since Buffalo is situated between two (lucky us!) Great Lakes, Erie and Ontario, these storms occur frequently until the lakes freeze over.

It’s Not Over For Philadelphia

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera //@rxnlzbth

Eagles  43 –  Rams 35

It’s frustrating that so many NFL fans and analysts have completely written off the Philadelphia Eagles as a Super Bowl contender.  If I were quarterback Nick Foles, I would find it offensive that no one has faith in my abilities to lead this team and would use that as leverage for the remainder of the season.

I realize that probably wasn’t the best way to start this article.  These last few days have been eating at me.  I needed time to be able to lay out my thoughts in an appropriate manner, while thoroughly expressing my frustrations about what I’m bothered by so it won’t be misunderstood.

Titans lose on the road to Arizona

Official Tennessee Titans Fan Reporter

Cardinals 12 – Titans 7

 

What was supposed to be a beautiful beginning of a trip out west ended up an offensive nightmare. The Titans defense was playing full force. They had eight sacks this game and they kept the Cardinals from scoring touchdowns. However, the Tennessee offense was just plain awful. They are not working together. There is no mojo brewing, no fantastic plays, and certainly no smashmouth football going on. Blah!!

Patriots Get Pummeled in Miami

Official Patriots Reporter

 

By Traci McCartney //@traciamc

Patriots 20 – Dolphins 27

 

Once again, the Patriots walked into Miami the odds-on favorite and came out losers. Although the score doesn’t adequately reflect it, it was an ugly Monday Night Football game. One the Patriots lost to the division rival Miami Dolphins 20-27.

It was a game where quarterback Tom Brady didn’t look like Tom Brady. It took 2 1/2 quarters of football before a Patriots wide receiver (Danny Amendola) caught a pass. And New England went 0 for 11 on 3rd down conversions.

Let that sink in, folks…the Patriots could not convert a single third down. The last time the Patriots were that inept at converting on third downs was in 1991. I remember those days – back when the Patriots were really bad – they hadn’t won more than 10 games since 1986 and this particular season, they went 6-10. Does anyone remember head coach Dick MacPherson? Nah…me either.

Packers Keep Playoff Hopes Alive with OT Win Over the Browns

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan//@Lucyrk78

Packers 27 – Browns 21 OT

 

I think my breathing might JUST be returning to normal today. Some people like close games, but if you’ve been reading my column for anytime, you know I can’t stand them! Two weeks in a row winning in overtime? NOT fun for me!

Sundays OT win was the third overtime win of this season – never before has that happened in Green Bay franchise history. Never before have the Packers won more than two overtime games in a single season. Another record? Sunday was the first time in Green Bay history that the team has won back-to-back games in overtime.

The Packers got a walk-off win for the second straight game when wide receiver Davante Adams ran for a 25-yard touchdown in overtime after first tying the game with 17 seconds left. At this point, Adams has to be one of the best receivers in the entire league.

The Broncos Look Back On the Jets; Ahead to the Colts

Official Denver Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon //@ABroncoNole

Broncos 23 – Jets 0

 

The Denver Broncos have a Thursday night game in the ‘House that Peyton Built’.  Because of this, I will combine the Jets and Colts as one article, it could show a trend for the other.

First up, let’s start with special teams. In a move that should’ve been made weeks ago, wide receiver Jordan Taylor was the return man and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was benched. This resulted in no drops or fumbles and positive yardage each time. He will be repeating those duties on Thursday.

Second, with the defense holding the Jets to three and outs, the offense got the ball, on average, at the 40-yard line.  That could very well happen again against Indy’s poor offense. Now, a win is a win.  And for the first time since week four, the ball wasn’t turned over.  However, the problems are not solved.
