Best Games of Week 16
New York Jets @ Indianapolis Colts: 29-15 Jets
Before week 16 it seemed as though we had a team destined to go the entire regular season with a flawless record, but as the playoffs draw near and the team really doesn’t have anything to play for, starters get pulled and perfect record fade away.
That is exactly what happen this week as Peyton Manning and company finally lost their first game of the season with 29-15 loss to the New York Jets who are still fighting for a playoff spot in the AFC Wildcard race.
Despite the loss to the Jets, I fully expect the Colts to be a headed for a run at the Super Bowl once the playoffs begin after week 17.
Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers: 23-20 Steelers
Everyone has written on the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers this season as their playoff hopes has just slipped away as of late, but this week they were looking to prove a point that they can still play with anyone despite their current injury problems.
Even though the Steelers were able to beat the Green Bay Packers last week with a last second touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to rookie wide receiver Mike Wallace, not many people thought they would be able to beat their division rival Baltimore Ravens this week, but that is exactly what they did as they were able to keep their playoff hopes alive for one more week!
Denver Broncos @ Philadelphia Eagles: 30-27 Eagles
The Denver Broncos were red hot to start the season with six straight wins under new head coach Josh McDaniels, but they have really struggled in the second half of the season with seven losses in the last nine games.
With that being said, and the San Diego Chargers recently clinching the AFC West division title, the Broncos were in desperate need to get back on track this week against the Philadelphia Eagles, but unfortunately, they fell just short as the Eagles were barely able to get their sixth straight win in the final minutes of regulation.
