Week 17 of the NFL regular season has come to an end. The morning games set up the rest of the day in meaningful football.
Texans vs Colts: This game was a very inspirational and emotional game with Chuck Pagano coming back to coach the Colts to victory. The colts have huge momentum going into the playoff game against the Ravens. The Houston Texans have lost 3 out of the last 4 games and went from the #1 seed lock-in to the #3 seed.
Dolphins vs Patriots: The Patriots got great news before Sunday morning. Rob Gronkowski was coming back after missing 5 games with a broken forearm. Another reason why this game was because the Texans lost their game and they had the chance to move up in the seeding. In Typical Patriots fashion they beat the Dolphins 28 to 0 for their first shutout since 2009.
Chiefs vs Broncos: The Broncos also benifited from the Texans loosing the colts. In typical fashion the Broncos put on a clinic against the Chiefs and dismantled them sending them to the offseason as the #1 draft pick. The Broncos now have homefield advantage throught the playoffs.
Giants vs Eagles: In order for the New York Giants to keep the playoff hopes alive they needed to win against the Eagles. The Giants completed their task of beating the Eagles but still needed help to get in. They needed the Bears and the Vikings to loose.
Bears vs Lions: The Bears entered the Game needing a win to keep their chances of the playoffs alive. The Bears barley did enough to beat the Lions and eliminate the Giants. The Bears also had to do some scoreboard watching of the Packers vs Vikings game.
Packers vs Vikings: This game would determine if the Vikings would go to the playoffs and complete the amazing collapse of the Chicago Bears. More people seemed to care about if Adrian Peterson was gonna break the Single Season Rushing Record. This game was an exciting game to watch to the end. Even though the AP did not get the rushing record he reapetely told reporters that he was happier to go to the playoffs then have the record. His effort got him 9 yards short of the record.
Cowboys vs Redskins
This Sunday Night Football game decided who was top dog of the NFC East. Their were two players who domination post game chatter was sixth round draft pick Alfred Morris and Tony Romo. Morris ran for 200 yars and now owns the Redskins record for single season rushing record, which was previously owned by Clinton Portis. Tony Romo pretty much ruined the Cowboys playoff hopes with 3 Interceptions and not giving the defense any help.
