Colts at Texans
In this division match-up the Colts looked like the better team, they didn’t look like a team to just sneak into the playoffs. Andrew Luck found his magic and carved up the Texans secondary in the first half. Deshawn Watson looked out of place for the first time; this is actually the first time as a starter he has lost by two scores. The rushing game was one sided as Marlon Mack put on a show. The Colts defence looks fast and solid and will have a tough challenge against the Kansas City Chiefs
Next Game: Saturday January 12th versus Kansas City Chiefs
Seahawks at Cowboys
The Seahawks running game let them down and eventually led to them losing to the Cowboys. Elliot was his power-horse self and Prescott showed up when it mattered the most. That Dallas defence has to be proud of making the best rushing team look ineffective. If the can perform the same against the Rams the Cowboys can make a legitimate push for the Superbowl. Deciding factor is if Prescott can throw better and not relying on the running game.
Next Game: Saturday January 12th versus Los Angeles Rams
Chargers at Ravens
The Lamar Jackson magic officially ended against the Chargers. He was the worst player on the field for the first three quarters, but somehow led to a potential game winning drive. He was a totally different player in the fourth quarter, but his costly fumble lost the game for the Ravens. Rivers was just as bad and didn’t look like a Pro Bowler at all. The Chargers were lucky for the Gordon score and that accurate leg Badgley. This was a defence match-up and the Chargers defence looks good.
Next Game: Sunday January 13th versus New England Patriots
Eagles at Bears
This was the definition of a defence match-up that old school football fans love to watch. Foles and Trubisky both had spells of excellence and dismay. The rushing game was obsolete for both teams, but hurt the two back Bears the most. Parkey is now the most hated man in all of Chicago after missing the potential winning field goal, move over Steve Bartman. OOO boy can those Eagles Fly. They keep passing everyone’s expectations.
Next Game: Sunday January 13th versus New Orleans Saints.
