NFL Split 10

(Top 5 – Bottom 5)

Week 13 – 2016

Written By: Eddie Cepeda (@eddiecee23)

__________

Happy Holidays to you and yours! Something about Thanksgiving just makes it a perfect football holiday. I feel that way even when the games are terrible, as usual. This year however, we were blessed with touchdowns all around. I don’t know about you, but I can think of no better way to gain an unhealthy amount of weight in a single day. I think we can all agree that we’ll take Week 12’s games over the kicker crap-fest we sat through in Week 11. I leave you with that thought of appreciation as we recap last week’s Split 10.

__________
Top 5
  1. Dallas Cowboys
  2. Seattle Seahawks

  4. Oakland Raiders
  5. Denver Broncos
Bottom 5

Time to shake things up friends. On to Week 13!
 
Top 5
NFL Split 10 dak prescott
  
  1. Dallas Cowboys 10-1
    No surprise here, the Cowboys keep their hot streak going against their division rival. While they hold a lead in one of the league’s best divisions, they will need to finish strong to keep a bye week and home field advantage in the playoffs. The Redskins and Giants are both playing very well and are within striking distance should the Cowboys slip. However, with two of the most poised rookies in recent memory it doesn’t look like that will happen.
  2. New England Patriots 9-2
    The Patriots pull out a close one against the Jets. The Jets let a 17-13 lead slip away in the 4th quarter and add another comeback to Tom Brady’s resume. Can the Patriots keep this going? Injury numbers are rising, and their fearless leader isn’t getting any younger. For now, we have to trust the coach and quarterback combo that consistently shows us that age is nothing but a number.
  3. Oakland Raiders 9-2
    Yet another impressive 4th quarter comeback for the young Derek Carr. The Raiders show their late game grit to erase the deficit against the Panthers and come out with a win. The story this week would be the splash plays made by one Khalil Mack. However, the defense again gave up too many points to be considered even average. That aside, the Raiders are solidifying a playoff berth down the stretch.
  4. New York Giants 8-3
    Six games straight! Whatever was hindering the G-men at the beginning of the season seems to be gone now. The Giants handled the Browns as they should have and are fighting for their shot at a playoff run. The defense that management shelled out the big dollars for seems to be paying off. The Giants have become a fun dark horse team that many like to pick to go all the way. Be honest, did anybody expect the Giants would win their last two Superbowl titles halfway through the season?
  5. Seattle Seahawks 7-3
    For whatever reason, the Bucs always play Seattle hard. I remember a time when Mike Glennon almost performed the feat we witnessed Sunday. That said, good teams often have head scratching losses. Seattle still has arguably the best defense in the league, and Russell Wilson always gives you a chance to win in the postseason. Judging by the rest of the NFC West, we can pretty much punch the Seahawks’ ticket to the playoffs now.

 

Outside looking in:

 
Atlanta Falcons – Atlanta seized their opportunity and poured it on against the Cardinals. They looked much better than they did heading into their bye week. The loss of their best cornerback Desmond Trufant (arguably, their best defensive player) will present a challenge for them finishing out the season.
 
Denver Broncos – Sunday’s loss was somewhat embarrassing for the Broncos. They can hang their hat on the fact that Von Miller had a huge game after a quiet month and Trevor Siemian is showing that he can keep the Broncos in the game.
  
Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs fought to remain in the hunt for the AFC West Sunday night. The victory over Denver puts them right behind Oakland with a chance to host them and Denver at home to finish out the season.
  
Bottom 5

clock dodgers nfl split 10

  1. Chicago Bears 2-9
    Matt Barkley took 54 pass attempts to do it, but he finished the game with 300 yards and three touchdowns. In spite of a solid stat line from the backup quarterback, the Bears fell to the Titans. All but eliminated from the postseason, it’s time to wonder if the Bears move on from all key positions in the offseason.
  2. New York Jets 3-8
    Well……… Fitzpatrick didn’t throw an interception! So there’s that. Just kidding, the Jets woke up to play the Patriots and were met with crippling disappointment after Brady led that last crushing touchdown drive. Cheer up Jets fans, at least you won’t fall for the Fitz-fraud again next year.
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars 2-9
    Black Bortles and Brock Osweiler seem to be competing for who can post the worst stat line of the season. Right now Brock is winning with a 99-yard performance. Either way, all that talk about the Jags turning things around was waaaaaay overblown. Their holes are many and their bright spots are few.
  4. San Francisco 49ers 1-10
    Not much is going right for San Francisco nowadays. Add some angry fans and players after your quarterback decides to choose the wrong place to take a political stance, and you get Sunday’s game. You can respect Kaepernick’s determination to voice his opinion and still think he might not be focused on his day job. Aside from that, the 49ers’ defense is still as atrocious as it has been the whole season. No bright light at the end of this tunnel for now.
  5. Cleveland Browns 0-12
    The good news is the Browns held Eli to under 200 yards passing; The bad news is they let him throw three touchdowns. Four chances, that’s all they get to avoid one of the most laughable seasons in NFL history. We believe in you Cleveland…….. Well, kind of…….. Okay not really.
 

In danger of falling:

 
Arizona Cardinals – To put it plainly, they got shlacked. Their opponent doubled their score and really just embarrassed them.
 
Houston Texans – No Brock, a rushing touchdown does not erase the three interceptions you threw. At some point the terrible play will catch up with them. I don’t care how bad the AFC South is.
 
Los Angeles Rams – Is Goff the answer? Is he not? I can give you one answer. It’s yes, Jeff Fisher should be fired. Before the season ends preferably.
