This is Alex from unwrap sports here to break down Week 14 NFL day games.
I always do a Thursday night, Sunday night and Monday Night Football recap checked it out on my page.
Uh, let's go ahead and jump right in.
We have the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Arizona Cardinals.
This was a game where the Steelers defense really made a lot of statements.
They kept the Cardinals AB eight very early in this game, really had this quote unquote in the bag early on.
A lot of coverage sacks, a lot of just defensive pressures by T. J. Watt.
You know, even make a Fitzpatrick got involved in the sack statistics.
And, you know, overall, you know, Devlin Hodges has been doing a standup job of putting the ****er cheers in a position to win these games.
Ah, he's three, you know, as a starter.
You know, he's definitely not trying to do too much.
16 for 1952 yards and a touchdown.
Very impressive was able to be mobile mover on the pocket.
You got 34 yards on the ground.
Deonte Johnson was basically the M v p of this game apartment turned touchdown.
He also wasn't playing very well running the ball, and it was just an impressive about throughout this whole time.
Deante Johnson is really, you know, proven himself.
Mike Tomlin was very impressed with him post game and during the game had a lot of good comments about how he performed.
And he's really kind of solidifying himself as, ah, strong option in the passing game.
For the Cardinals, it was just another tough loss for them.
They've been unable to really kind of keep themselves in these games.
Threw three interceptions, couldn't really get much going with Drake.
David Johnson only got three carries.
You know his whole health situation is very, uh, very hazy at the moment.
David Johnson himself.
I mean, he did have a receiving touchdown, but he's not being used at the capacity that he was in his M V P caliber years.
Ah, not sure if that's a change of pace from the offensive coordinator.
You know the new head coach or what that may be, but he's definitely not.
He's a shell of himself until he's not.
You know, I don't know if it's an injury related thing, Maybe you know, scheme wise.
He's not really fitting in with these new head coaches, But yeah, I know that very impressive game by the Steelers defense and Deonte Johnson to get themselves a strong victory.
Thanks for joining Stream.
See Medina, a 24 high dome, an E E v e R.
Thanks for stopping. Thanks for tuning in.
Next, we have the Carolina Panthers at the Atlanta Falcons.
Carolina Panthers went from being a possible, you know, sneaky wild card team in the first half of the season, possibly with Cow Alan really coming into form.
Kind of putting the OSHA.
The Panthers leave Cam Newton in the past.
Should they really focus on him moving forward? Um, it's been, ah, mess in the game since he Colin has had a few games where he's played exceptionally well, but not enough to get this team into a position to win.
He did have a couple of bad games where, you know, he basically lost the game for them, But, you know, McCaffrey hasn't been able to get as much going, you know, the feeling was able to get 11 carries.
You know, he is heavily involved in the passing game, but when he is running the ball, it just eats up.
That at the time of possession, you know, helps kind of set up a Momenta.
MME are actually set the tempo for the offense and, you know, outside of McCaffrey more.
You know that this team has very much struggled to perform well on defense.
As you saw, you know, the Atlanta Falcons, a team that has been very confusing the season.
They have, you know, quite a bit of talent on offense.
You know, they have Hooper.
We have Calvin Ridley.
They had, they had Mom.
They have Julio Jones, and, you know, for a team like that to be able to just take advantage of the Panthers, and, you know, I know we say, you know, Julio Jones is the freak, A just a talented NFL wide receiver, but he just definitely has not been himself or has not been producing to what his standard is.
You know he had five or sections for five receptions for 66 yards.
It was just a game where the Panthers just let too many big plays happen, put themselves in a very compromised position and, you know, for the Atlanta Falcons, I mean, all they can really do is just, you know, have moral victories or, you know, have those moments.
But to score 40 points against the Panthers, it's just another tough look for the Panthers, who just released their head coach.
Or just excuse me fired their head coach.
And, you know, who knows? Maybe Dan Quinn me be seeing his Buffalo Bills Very impressive showing by the Ravens and repressive showing by the Bills.
Josh Allen had a couple moments where he wasn't a very accurate receiver.
Was that if there is, you know John Ross Co Beasley, though you know they have potentials toe, Really, I kind of get this offense going and, you know, against the stout Ravens defense, they did struggle.
At first, Um, this The score definitely doesn't indicate the way the game was.
For the majority of the time, it was a hard fought game by the Bills, but Baltimore Ravens definitely have their number from the get go.
Um, you know, Josh Allen now has another tough game going to Pittsburgh as they're the underdog by two points.
Uh, so for the Bills.
You know they have another show me game.
I don't think they're not for real.
They're definitely for real.
Um, it's just, you know, you know, when you go against a hot team, it's just, you know, whoever is able to make the most plays.
And in this showing between the Ravens, ah, the future M v.
Of the NFL had the upper hand against the Buffalo Bills.
Next, we had the Cleveland Browns with the Cincinnati Bengals.
A lot was made of actions that were taken in this game by Odell Beckham Jr.
There were a lot of moments where, you know, he kind of just didn't seem and interested.
He left for the locker room early things that you know could be something else, all all entirely.
But based on the nature of the way Odo handles these situations in the way the media has kind of portrayed him made this party situation a lot larger than it should have been.
But the one situation I thought it was just kind of disrespectful is when he was just kind of standing out with the corner when his team was in the huddle, I thought That was just something that definitely shows He's uninterested and there were a lot of means.
I don't know if this was based off of the names and someone just kind of reported it as such.
But there are rumors that he's been kind of telling teams like Hey, or actually coaches and and other players on the opposing teams is Hey, come get me and I could kind of see that Cleveland Browns have had a miserable season based on their their goals and their expectations from the summer a lot of people pegged them.
Feast Thea The preseason Super Bowl winners because all Browns fans could talk about was how much of a threat.
Jarvis, Landry and, uh oh, BJ.
We're going to do, uh, Page of our GVR.
Thanks for joining the Stream.
Yeah, it's definitely Landry's team. I.
Odell Beckham Jr.
It's weird to see him struggle this way with the Browns.
You know, he did have Eli Manning, and, you know, Hall of Fame career.
Whether you want to argue that or not, was able t give Odell Beckham, you know the opportunities and, you know he's just had a string of ah tough sees you have how his team is doing, but it's just kind of goes to the prima Donna wide receiver situation to the Cleveland Browns.
Kind of cut their losses.
Try toe, trade him off for some draft capital because you know they're not that far off from being a strong caliber team.
You know, they just need better play from Baker Mayfield, which he still didn't do as well.
Two interceptions ran one in for a touchdown, but it was just one of those things where you watch it and it's just the Browns.
It's almost like the Cowboys, but not entirely the same because Cowboys air a far superior, talented roster.
But the rounds are no slouches when it comes to the towns they provide a Galaxy man. Thanks for joining Stream.
So I just think it should be something that Brown should think about possibly moving O P J.
He's clearly not buying in.
You know Landry, I'm sure he's gonna be missing his brother.
You know, his his friend out there.
But, you know, as a team, Landry's gonna buy into this program.
You've seen him, you know, get invest himself into this team.
Odell Beckham looks like he just wants to be on a guaranteed winner winning situation.
Use that to your advantage.
Odell Beckham so has value.
Regardless of what kind of season he had.
Definitely look for the Browns to trade him in this offseason.
I don't think they want to keep him, and I think unless manage on this, ownership sees a different.
I think maybe a new head coach with a new mentality might be what is better for them long term.
Next game we have is the agreement Packers hosting the Redskins, 2015 victory.
Redskins lost guys, I believe in the second quarter.
I think guys really revitalizes offense.
You know, he was a hard runner, one that you know, has shown the ability to break away on on plays.
You know, he had a very long reception touchdown, very long rushing touchdown and his 1st 3 games prior to this game, you know, he definitely showed a lot of promise, you know, was definitely, you know, he had over 120 yards this past week.
He, you know, had a moment where I think he's starting to figure things out.
And unfortunately for him, you know he and another season cut short by an injury.
Don't know if we'll be back, Um, in the season.
I don't know if they're even gonna try to risk him knowing his injury history of them.
I just kind of let him slide on this.
But I am very encouraged by the way he ran the ball, the way he kind of took the change of pace back with Adrian Peterson.
You know, they definitely split carries, but I definitely think guys definitely has the upside.
I think his ability to run is going to be what ultimately helps Haskins out in the second season in the NFL, he's struggled heavily.
He hasn't had a lot of help around him.
Ah, he's had trouble connecting with the best receiver on the roster.
Which is Terry McLaurin, who you know, definitely had a couple couple bad games because of, you know, miscommunications with Haskins and bad throws, whatever the case may be.
But if the Redskins want to put themselves in a position where they get the most out of this offense, it's gonna be at the, um, very capable hands of Darius guys.
I am a huge fan of his I love the way he ran the ball and Ellis you.
It's very quote unquote violent running style, which you know.
That's kind of what relates to his knee injuries, But I think he can get past this.
He definitely seems like a type of personality that can handle these type of adversities.
So for the rescuers, I definitely think they got themselves a great running back and someone that they could build towards the future and has shown flashes of that potential early on for the Packers.
It's one of it's.
It's just a tough situation for them to see the way that they kind of let themselves kind of play down to the Redskins.
And, you know, I know I just hyped up the Redskins offense, but they're a capable offense.
They're not a quote unquote good offense yet at all, by any means and for them to kind of keep up with the Packers and kind of fight and claw their way back to make this as close as it was very impressive.
I mean, I definitely for the betting purposes, I definitely was Ah, on the betting side of Washington covering because I just think the Packers are just so topsy turvy when it comes on defense and even offensively, against the Jack, the Los Angeles Chargers back on Halloween weekend.
It was just so weird to just see I'm just completely dissolved.
But again, that goes back to a point that I have made on previous dreams, that they don't really have a number three guy.
They have Davante Adams, who is a very capable receiver who can take over a game they have.
Marion Jones is a very capable running back who can be a contributor to both the receiving and rushing game, but they haven't had a number three receiver kind of step up.
Lazard looked like the latest one to kind of catch a lightning in a bottle, and maybe he could be the one.
I think he looks like he could be the one based on the way I've seen him run routes and the way he's kind of ah, to build a rep, built a repertoire with E extending people for joking on the street.
All right, Christian will be saying that all the group chat, Um, but I think the Packers definitely need one of their young receivers to step up and get themselves to that next step.
Let's go to the next game.
We have the Denver Broncos at the Houston Texans.
Definitely a big surprise.
Uh, you know, I wouldn't have been surprised if the Broncos won, but the way that they started this game, the way they built this lead up, it was just very impressive.
It's one of those things where I think, you know, maybe the Texans weren't expecting much from Drew Lock.
You know he's a second start, but, you know, they definitely took their foot off the gas and it took him forever to kind of get things going.
It's one of those moments where you know it's for the Texans.
It's just a big you know.
They are now going to be in a very pivotal spot next week because they faced this upcoming week because they face the Titans and the Times can ultimately take the division from them at this point because, you know, they lost a couple of easy games.
Um, but in this game it was just that defense.
Definitely lead to Shawn Watson down now.
The offense definitely struggled, but you know, for this Texans team you know, do Shawn wants is not gonna be able to just pounce all over any defense any day.
There's gonna be times when they are gonna struggle.
But in these situations, you know, you look at it as okay, As a team, you have to step up.
It's almost like what happened with the Chiefs when they lost my homes in that game against the Broncos.
That defense stepped up.
That's what needs to happen for this Houston team.
I think it's something that is concerning, you know, that there defense held the Patriots, which I know have struggled.
But that was a you know, ah, defensive unit that performed very well that entire game.
You know, they had a lot of moments where they look good.
They've had a lot of games look terrible.
It's, um, very concerning for the Texans.
And, you know, it might even cost them a division crown and may even put them in a spot where they're fighting for a wild card spot.
Hamish on champ. Thanks for joining Stream.
Next thing we have is the Detroit Lions at the Minnesota Vikings didn't expect much from the lines.
There's a 27 victory for the Vikings for the Vikings.
You know, it's all about getting healthy.
Dalvin Cook was ultimately healthy enough to play.
He was able to contribute at about the same rate he was contributing before.
So that was great for them for the receiving corpse.
You know, uh, Adam Dylan has been practicing looks to be back this upcoming week.
I would say that for the Vikings, I'd expect them to kind of take it easy with them, especially if they wanna try to, you know, push a playoff run.
They want to make sure one of their best weapons on offense is healthy.
So expect him to possibly not get a full set of Carrie's.
Whatever the case may be, they're gonna ultimately limit him to just probably, you know, maybe 70 80% of the snaps, maybe not run as many routes.
Justo put him in a position where he can gradually come back.
I mean, they have a pretty firm hold of there wildcard spot, you know that? Definitely not.
Do you know, arresting him? Because they could ultimately still lose it grams and are still very much ah, possibility if they run if they sweep their next three games.
But for the Vikings, I do expect to see feeling on the field.
Maybe not as involved.
What kind of a gadget kind of distraction type player Next game was one of the games of the week.
The San Francisco 40 Niners victory over the Saints, 48 46.
Very impressive couple of performances, by the way that Jared Cook made those receptions in four Touchdown.
Unfortunately, 2nd 1 leading to a concussion when I was very topsy turvy fantasy players where you'll see him drop a touchdown and then, you know, go off the next game.
He's a very hot and cold type tight end.
Ah, he was that when he was a part of the Packers.
Definitely showed a lot of promise last year with the Raiders, and this year with the Saints has really kind of grown into this role, a cz of late.
So very impressive there and on the opposite opposite side.
George Kill had himself a game, you know, battling injuries last couple weeks definitely made an impact in this game.
Definitely ultimately put them in a position to win and manual Sanders, who I unfortunately, and start and cost me my fantasy league in one of my leagues.
Had himself a game, caught a touchdown, threw a touchdown just overall.
Looked like the's, the player that was performing when he first got there.
A huge loss for the Saints, one of those situations where you know they had already clinched.
So it's not anything that's gonna affect their status when it comes to the division already clinched that got them back into the bye week situation of the playoff rankings.
As I believe the number one seed and you know, pushed the Seahawks into a wild card spot. So huge.
Huge victory for the 40 Niners.
A gutsy victory.
They were the underdogs going to New Orleans, and they handle business.
Garoppolo had himself a hell of a Game four touchdown throws what people thought it was going to be.
His biggest weakness of the 40 Niners.
Biggest weakness was the performance of Garoppolo.
Could he perform in big moments? And he definitely did that definitely perform very well and, you know, handle business all the way.
Next game we have here is the Miami Dolphins at the New York Jets, 22 21 victory by the Jets for the Dolphins.
I actually thought they were gonna win this game.
I think Devante Parker's injury definitely hindered them quite a bit.
Jets were without Ryan Griffin.
They're starting tight end who had started to kind of mess very well with Sam Darnold living on Bell.
Sat out this game with the flu, lost £10 definitely didn't wantto.
They don't want to have him on the field.
A gritty victory for the Jets.
You know, for a team that has, you know, been beat up by injuries, you know? And you know, everything that has been going on with their season with their issues, with keeping star players happy with Elmo Adams and living on Bell on the trading block.
What? That it seemed like they were on the trading block with all the rumors.
Um, but yeah, Rick.
Good Richard for the Jets, for the dolphins.
Unfortunate for Devante Parker to go down.
Believe it was a concussion.
If I'm, uh, some incorrectly let me know on the chat.
Ah, but for for for the dolphins.
You know, Devante Parker last season looked like a player that was on his way out of Miami and is now looked to beat the future number one for this team next season, definitely has made a huge turnaround from his previous seasons with the Dolphins.
Next game we have is the Indianapolis Colts against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
UM 38 35 Victor by the Bucks.
Jameis Winston continues to be the hottest, coldest quarterback in NFL history.
The fact that he has a job is crazy, but he does have games where he performs his butt off and puts his team in a position to win.
And a very hopeful cold team for three weeks ago was in a spot where they, you know, could have been the team that took the crown from the Texans.
Unfortunately, they've lost three straight brutal games.
They've all lost by all their losses or by six points.
So for the most part, they're always within there the striking distance of a victory.
But no Jacoby process had his issues post knee injury, about kind of leading his receivers, putting his receivers in a good spot.
You know, throwing them open, Marlon, Matt going down with this broken hand that was a huge hit to the running game.
He was really getting things going prior to his injury, he was able to get back, but you know, he did look like his timing was a bit off with kind of cutting into holes and everything.
But what a huge shots of this playoff.
This ah, possible playoff team.
They definitely are on the outside looking in.
And unless they win the table and get a lot of help, I don't see the Colts making the playoffs very disappointing with hot start that they had to the season, they definitely look like a team that could ultimately make a run.
But unfortunately for them, injuries came at Ah, hard times and the next man up was not able to perform.
So definitely look for the colds to possibly upgrade their receiving corpse.
You know, Paris. Campbell went down for the year.
See why not? We don't know if he's gonna be back.
A lot of questions on that Colts A team started with their loss.
Thea, that's right, that big losses healers when the Steelers still had Mason Rudolph so that that in itself was that much more impressive of the sea was victory against the Colts.
Next thing we have is the Los Angeles charges against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gardner Minshew was put in a starter.
Fools had definitely had a hard time, kind of getting himself back into the game speed himself.
He made a lot of mistakes early on, ultimately got benched, and Jaguars kind of handed the keys back to Minshew.
Uh, Los Angeles Chargers are one of the hottest, coldest team's, almost like the book in years.
They got things going.
It could be attributed to Derwin James, their probe All Pro safety who just came back from, I believe, injured reserve.
And, you know, maybe that's what was the impact that kind of affected this game.
J chart let this game with a foot injury.
He was on a walking boot and a s******, which almost is basically a death sentence for people who are in fantasy, because if he's on a s******, it means you can't put any pressure on it.
Which means he probably is not playing this week.
And for all of us who do fantasy football, that is a major blow, as he was a top receiver, and I'm sure you were banking on himto get you a lot of yards after the catch with his next match up.
They have both for the Chargers.
I think the writing's on the wall.
I think they're probably going to move on from Melvin Gordon.
I think hecklers proven more than more than enough times that he is capable of being there, go to running back.
You know, he's great.
Out of out of the backfield, catching passes, you know, he had a 90 yard touchdown, very impressive.
There was a clip where Philip Rivers should talking was kind of put on the big screen, and he definitely was going at it with Doc way.
Ah, great victory for the Chargers.
It's all moral at this point, just just integrity.
For them to just get these, whatever victories they can get.
It's gonna be very interesting to see if Philip Rivers is going to be a Charger next season.
Next thing we have is the Kansas City Chiefs at the New England Patriots.
Cheese got the victory, 23 16.
This game almost didn't happen because the chief's equipment wasn't in, was shipped to New Jersey instead of Boston.
So that was very weird.
It was kind of, uh, it followed the whole the Patriots or Cheaters kind of story line on Twitter.
Basically, people saying that Belichick had it redirected over there.
So after all that, you know, the Patriots definitely got screwed by the refs in this game.
Um, definitely is better for Belichick at it again.
Thanks, Eve Adina a 24.
The refs definitely screwed the Patriots a few times in this game.
That Travis Kelsey fumble, where they blew a dead when they got the ball.
You know, that could have been a touchdown for the Patriots defense.
May kill Harry had a touchdown, definitely at attention.
If you look at the replay, I believe the situation was they didn't have any timeouts.
And since it wasn't called the scoring play on the field that couldn't review it.
I think that might have been the difference in this game that in that defensive touchdown, But what a great victory by the Chiefs.
You know, they deserve all the credit for getting a tough victory against the New England Patriots.
And you know, as much as it sucks to say, the Patriots lost it because of the refs, I mean, how many times that We've been saying the Patriots get variable calls against that.
It's happened against them.
It's unfortunate, you know, I'm not gonna sit here and say that they deserved it.
It's unfortunate Moment happens to a lot of teams.
I mean, the Saints of all people got it the worst last season.
So you know Hey, at least it wasn't in the NFC conference championship.
But what a tough loss for the Patriots, who have been reeling and, hopefully what looks like a gimme against the Cincinnati Bengals next week.
But we will see how that goes.
Titans win against the Oakland Raiders, 40 to 21.
Tana Ho looks like the quarterback of the future for the Titans, you know, has, ah, little bit of unique talent A J around young guy, definitely very great personality.
Seems like on the field great morale booster out there.
Hell of a receiver He had over 100 50 yards this week, two touchdowns.
Howto had himself a game Derek, where Henry's running the ball so well, he's proving that the last quarter of the season last year was not a fluke, continues to run the ball well.
See Medina, a 24 is in one of my fantasy leagues.
He, uh and he has them.
So he he knows how valuable that, uh, production is for his fans of team as well as the production is for this Titans on offense and they've their defense has been sneakily getting a lot better keeping this team in games.
I mean, they've want to string of games that this passing game is just so revamped.
I know a lot of it kind of is attributed in Marcus Mariota not willing to throw the ball, and I think that's more of a situation where it's, Ah, you just try to be, too.
He was even more conservative Alex Smith style quarterback, So expect him.
Thio leave the times the next few seasons and ultimately joined someone else, has a backup quarterback.
But I'm, um, I'm all in on a Tannehill.
I think they're gonna be a scary team down lined, I could said earlier.
They have a real shot at taking the division crown from Houston Texans.
That would be a major boost that would almost but sharply guarantee Tanno a contract extension or stay.
Like I said for the calls, they just need a whole lot of open.
I don't think there's a whole lot of hope to be given so that that wraps up my in a vote.
We 14 Sunday date game ****ysis.
