Miracle of Miracles: The Buffalo Bills are in the Playoffs!

By Mary Pesarchick // @HeyMom418

At the end of the last century, the Buffalo Bills were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs by the Tennessee Titans because of a play which is now known as the “Music City Miracle.”

Although the throw from tight end Frank Wycheck to wide receiver Kevin Dyson appeared to everyone except Titans fans and, unfortunately, the referee, to be an illegal forward lateral, the resulting touchdown was allowed to stand.  And the Bills lost by a score of 22-16.

So began the epic journey known around Western New York as “The Drought.” For 17 long, torturous years, the Bills failed to make the postseason. This annual exercise in futility was the butt of countless jokes and NFL Today graphics.

Week 16: Detroit Lions Pride Report

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Bengals 26 – Lions 17

Handle your business and win.  Get some help from a couple of teams, and the Lions could get into the playoffs.  Easy enough.  In their last 4 games, the Lions faced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Chicago Bears, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers.  They were favored in all of them. They beat both the Buccaneers and the Bears.  Today they had to go on the road and face the 5-11 Bengals who were thoroughly beaten by the Vikings and the Bears.

This game should be no problem.  Despite a slow start from both teams, tight end Eric Ebron scored on a pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford.  Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay was getting calls, breaking up passes.  But the game took a slow turn.  The Bengals scored a touchdown in the 3rd quarter to make the score 13-10.  Lions fans just started to get “That Feeling”.  That some way, somehow, this team was going to lose to the Bengals.

The worlds hottest and longest Hot Seat will finally cool off.

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.

Chicago Bears Win by Putting Rookies on Display

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

 

Bears 33 – Bengals 7

The Chicago Bears got a much needed win and they did it in a big way. Coming off of a one point loss against a 1-10 team was just too much for the Bears and it took their young leader to command a winning mentality in the locker room and the practice field.

“When everyone has that hunger, that desire to want to go out and execute the next play, it makes it fun on offense.”  

This is the core statement that rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky said during yesterday’s press conference and it was everything he could have envisioned. It was a well balanced offense, both in the run and pass game, something that fans and writers, including myself, have echoed throughout the season.

Titans Defeat Bengals To Win Fourth in A Row

Official Titans Fan Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

Titans 24 – Bengals 20

It came down to the last minute of the game, but the Tennessee Titans eked out another win at home. Running back DeMarco Murray had three touchdowns this game.  He had a seven yard TD catch from quarterback Marcus Mariota with only 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter.  That sealed the victory for Tennessee.   

Murray showed his pro form by keeping his knees off the ground and stretching to reach into the end zone and get that touchdown.  It was a thing of beauty.   Murray also scored on the Titan’s opening possession.  It was the first TD on an opening drive for the team since Week 1 against the Raiders and the fifth game that the Titans were able to score on the first drive.  This fan is very grateful that Murray had a fantastic game.

AFC North – Week 5 Update

By Kate Arhar (aka Cleveland Kate) // @ClvlndK8

After years of tough competition and league-leading stats, the AFC North seems to have fallen on hard times.  Through four weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers are at the top with a predictable 3-1 record.  They are currently ranked 5th on the Bleacher Report Power Rankings. Then, there’s the REST of the division. Down at #22 we have the Baltimore Ravens (2-2), at #23 the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3), and, pulling up the rear as usual, my Cleveland Browns (0-4).

Pittsburgh’s only loss so far came in overtime vs the Chicago Bears. They look good. Really good. Going to the Playoffs and maybe the Super Bowl good. (Man it hurts just to type that!).  They host a tough and improving Jacksonville Jaguars team this week but their offense, which has put up a division-leading 90 points so far, is up to the challenge.

Packers Rally To Beat Bengals in OT

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan // @lucyrk78

Sunday, September 24: 24-27 Win

This game wasn’t going to be easy from the start. Green Bay was playing without several key starters: wide receiver Randall Cobb, defensive end Mike Daniels, left tackle David Bakhtiari, defensive back Kentrell Brice, cornerback Davon House, and linebackers Jake Ryan and Nick Perry. Adding to the stress of injured players, the temperature made this game the warmest in team history.

If you haven’t been following Cincinnati’s season, you wouldn’t know they came into this game at 0-2. They were aggressive from the start and had a 21-7 lead come halftime. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked five times and hit more than 10 times, and most shockingly, the Bengals forced a pick-six when cornerback William Jackson intercepted a pass from Rodgers to wide receiver Jordy Nelson, leading to a 75-yard touchdown. It’s pretty impressive when you think about it. Rodgers has been in the league for 10 years, and this only the second time he’s thrown an interception that’s turned into a touchdown. Another impressive stat? With this win, Aaron Rodgers has now beaten every NFL team. Except, of course, the Packers.

Packers Thrilling Victory

 By Sueli Loiola  // @Su_firstavenger
What a game ladies and gentlemen!  I suppose the Packers like to have some emotion and it doesn’t matter what time of the season it is.  All us Packer Fans clearly remember the last two seasons. The Packers tend to not have good starts to the regular season.  The season really gets started for the Packers after the fourth week.  It’s almost like the first games are an extended preseason.  
After those first four games, something happens and the team gets stronger and more confident on the field.  All the players showed a sort of excitement, confidence and a different spirit during the game, training and the whole league.  I know that nobody in Lambeau stops believing in a victory before the game has finished.  And I believe that is what happened yesterday.
