Week 18 Review of the NFL

One Year Turnaround

I certainly did not have the Jacksonville Jaguars making the playoffs this season. As I’m sure most Jaguars fans (if there are any) didn’t have them making it either. Yet, I did expect them to be markedly better than the previous two years in which they had 1 and 3 wins respectively. QB Trevor Lawrence was in a lose-lose situation last year with no help in front of him on the offensive line and a lack of playmakers to get the ball to. Those two things have greatly improved and show why he was selected number one overall. The defense has shown vast improvement as well with the Jaguars winning 7 of their last 9 games to clinch the porous AFC North division title. That’s another reason as to why the Jaguars have improved so quickly. Playing the Texans, Colts and Titans twice every season will do that. Regardless it’s good to see fresh faces in the playoffs and the Jaguars fit that mold to a tee.

This Is How It’s Supposed To Look

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 481 yards, 3 touchdown passes and ran for another. This was done in the course of their blowout victory at home against the Atlanta Falcons. It also put the Bengals in a tie for the division lead with Baltimore having the tiebreaker against them going into Week 8. When the Bengals are on their game, this is what they look like. They are a high powered offense that can score points in bunches and the defense is flying under the radar around the league. They were 7 yards short of having three receivers gain over 100 yards receiving in the game. It’s been a rough start for them, but for their sake they better hope that Super Bowl hangover is done with.

These Guys Are Pretty Good

Take away the fact that the Buffalo Bills committed 4 turnovers, they forced 3 via interception against the Los Angeles Rams. If you cut the turnovers in half to only two, the Bills absolutely dominated this matchup. The Rams had moments in the first half where they could have pulled away and taken command of the game. Buffalo was relentless in their pass rush though and totaled 7 sacks for the game. LA was shutout for the second half and Josh Allen might not have needed to make a statement in the first game, but his play sure seemed like he wanted to. What looked to be a good opening game matchup ended up being rather one-sided.
