Welcome to the week 15 review of the NFL presented in entertaining fashion. Lets play 2 Truths and Lie. For each NFL game pick out which two statements are true, and which one is false (Hint: most of the jokes are the false statement).
OAK 15- KC 0
Oakland Raiders shut out the Kansas City Chiefs and took home the victory with 5 field goals.
The Raiders ended a 6 game losing streak.
Sebastian Janikowski gave his team an insurmountable lead when he made his first field goal with 1:44 left in the first quarter.
SF 41- NE 34
The San Francisco 49ers, clinched the division holding off an almost amazing comeback by the New England Patriots.
The Patriots fell just short with a 28 point comeback.
Bill Belichick does not run up the score, maybe he just forgets other teams cannot erase 30 point deficits.
GB 21- CHI 13
The Green Bay Packers won the NFC North with a win over the Chicago Bears.
Clay Matthews continues to own Jay Cutler with 2 sacks.
Olindo Mare made a field goal while reminiscing about the Taft presidency.
MIN 36- STL 22
The Minnesota Vikings kept their playoff hopes alive on the back of Adrian Peterson who rushed for 212 yards and including an 82-yard touchdown.
With two games to go, Peterson sits 294 yards short of Eric Dickerson’s record for rushing yards in a season.
Peterson was deemed to have an unfair advantage because defenses cannot stack the box with more than eleven players.
WAS 28- CLE 21
Kirk Cousins stepped in amicably for Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins entered a tie for first place in the division.
Trent Richardson added 2 touchdowns of his own for the Cleveland Browns.
Teams have learned their lesson from Kevin Kolb and Matt Flynn and teams will refrain from giving up too much for Cousins this off season.
ATL 34- NYG 0
New York Giants fell into a tie for the NFC East with the Redskins and the Cowboys who both won on Sunday.
The Atlanta Falcons shut out the Giants due in part to poor play from Eli Manning.
Its safe to bet on the Atlanta Falcons.
MIA 24- JAC 3
Ryan Tannehill brought his A-game with his best performance of the year.
The Jaguars tied their franchise record for losses since their inaugural season in 1995 with 12.
Tannehill remembers when the Jaguars came into the league because it was the first year he could rent a car.
NO 41- TB 0
The New Orleans Saints dominated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The last time the Saints shut out a team President Taft got stuck in a bathtub.
DEN 34- BAL 17
The Baltimore Ravens struggled in their first week with Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator after firing their OC this last week.
The Denver Broncos pulled out their 11th victory with a balanced effort.
The change in Baltimore and the consistency in Denver prove the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t change horses mid-stream, and never cross streams.”
HOU 29- IND 17
The Houston Texans sealed the AFC South and showed that they can be a dominant force especially at home.
The Indianapolis Colts would have secured a playoff berth with a win.
Andrew Luck still thinks he has time to finish another comeback.
SEA 50- BUF 17
Seattle Seahawks hung up a very crooked number on the Buffalo Bills, winning 50-17.
The Seahawks scored over 50 points for the second week in a row.
Pete Carroll learned that a press conference recapping how you scored 107 points over the last two weeks is not as much fun when you steal a fake punt off of Bill Belichick’s ‘up 30 play card.’
ARI 38- DET 10
Arizona Cardinals showed they had not quit on Sunday by beating the Detroit Lions 38-10.
Larry Fitzgerald still believes his team has not quit on this season.
Larry Sr. will respond to his son this week in his column on entitled Relax, It Was Just The Lions.
CAR 31- SD 7
Carolina Panthers took down the San Diego Chargers in convincing fashion.
Mike Tolbert returned to San Diego to vulture two touchdowns for the visiting team.
When Tolbert was asked if he would consider taking Norv Turner’s job when he inevitably looses it, Tolbert responded by saying that he would only coach a team that needs one win to make the playoffs, because that is how he rolls.
DAL 27- PIT 24 (OT)
Dallas Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime keeping the Wild Card picture in the NFC completely muddled.
A Brandon Carr interception set up the game winning field goal in overtime.
Ben Roethlisberger was given the Cowboys game ball.
CIN 34- PHI 13
The Cincinnati Bengals forced 5 turnovers on their way to a victory.
Nick Foles struggled completing less than half of his passes.
Andy Dalton completed more than half of his passes.
