That Shouldn’t Have Happened

I didn’t even realize it until the game was over. Matt Ryan was the losing quarterback of another epic collapse. He was the quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons back when they blew a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl 51. Now he is apart of the biggest comeback win in NFL history with the Minnesota Vikings beating Ryan and the Indianapolis Colts in overtime. The Colts were winning 33-0 at halftime. I pretty much had written this game off when it was 30-0. The game was still on in the background, but I didn’t get back into it until I was made aware of the Vikings efforts when they were down by 8. Too many Matt Ryan 3 and outs and an awful display by the Colts defense are why the Vikings came back in this game. Minnesota also showed that they are a flawed team by the way they played in the first half. Either way the result of this game shouldn’t have happened.

Can They Shock The Football World?

There is a possibility that the Jacksonville Jaguars could be in the playoffs by winning their division. It’s no secret that the AFC South has been awful this year.

They play host to the Dallas Cowboys and play the Jets in New York. But they also play the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans for their last two games of the season. If the Jaguars do shock the football world, you heard it here first.

Patrick Mahomes’ Kryptonite

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was unbeaten in the months of November and December since being the starting quarterback in 2018. That has since changed with the Chiefs losing to the Cincinnati Bengals for the third consecutive game. It would seem that the Bengals have a formula for beating the Chiefs and it involves causing turnovers and having their QB Joe Burrow be methodical in his approach to keeping Mahomes off the field. A rather simple gameplan in the grand scheme of things. This win by Cincinnati has them in the conversation for a top-2 seed come playoff time. They are keeping pace with the Baltimore Ravens who currently are in first place in the AFC North, but the Bengals now have the tiebreaker against Kansas City and they play Buffalo in a few weeks. It could interesting down the stretch for the Bengals.
