Week14

Season Finale - NFL Week 17 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Todd Gurley is the most important piece in the NFL's highest scoring offense and is a nightmare week to week to gameplan against. He leads the league in yards from scrimmage and TD's. This seems like a no brainer MVP and quite a turnaround story from just a year ago. The culture change that happened with the hiring of Sean McVay has been remarkable, it just goes to show with several top draft picks and an aggressive approach on both offense and defense, a bottom tier team can bounce back fairly quickly. All it takes is some vision, execution, and belief/buy-in from the players. Congrats to the Rams on their 2017 season.

In The Home Stretch - NFL Week 15 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Well, I've been saying for the last few weeks that the Patriots and Steelers would come down to who can get home field advantage. In week 14, the Steelers made another furious, 4th quarter comeback with a field goal from Chris Boswell. This is becoming quite a trend the last few weeks.The Patriots however upheld a tradition of shitting the bed in Miami. Jay Cutler looked like the QB every body thought he was ten years ago and Kenyan Drake roasted the Patriots defense with 193 total yards. Not quite what the league was expecting, but that is what happens in the NFL. A week of unexpected outcomes.

Cold Weather Games - NFL Week 14 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Week 14 is upon us and the December games are in full swing. That means teams that can't play defense, run or at least protect the football, and play on the road are done. This is usually when the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson are at their best. They tend to travel well, they protect the football, and are never out of a game. Their defense has bounced back to be a dominant unit once again, holding the high-flying Eagles to only 10 points was quite an accomplishment, especially considering how well Wentz had the offense humming in recent games.
