NFL: Green Bay Packers on top in the NFC – Titans land in front of Colts

The Green Bay Packers underpinned first place in the entire NFC with a win at arch rivals Chicago in Week 17 and are allowed to rest a little before the start of the play-offs in a week. The Titans and Colts will also take part there – just like the Bears themselves, who received a ticket despite the defeat. Why?

Took another win from Chicago and set a new personal record: Packers star Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers gets going furiously – and celebrates the additional break with the Packers

One of the big unanswered questions about the later Sunday hour (CET) was: Which team will secure the bye in the NFC for the first play-off week? The answer: the Packers. Because Green Bay was also well armed in the last strong Chicago Bears, found both offensively and defensively answers and also survived critical phases in the meantime.

After a perfect first half (ten out of ten passes, two three touchdowns) the spotlight was once again on the already outstanding Aaron Rodgers. The 37-year-old finished the game, which was also the 202nd comparison of this oldest NFL rivalry (101 Packers wins, 95 Bears successes, six draws), with 240 passing yards and a total of four touchdown passes. The “Gunslinger” ended the entire regular season with 48 touchdown throws and only five interceptions – Rodgers never had so many scores in his entire career. The third MVP title after 2011 and 2014 should have come a little closer to the one-time Super Bowl winner.

But much more important: With this win, Green Bay secured not only a bye in a week at the Wild Card Round but also constant home rights in the entire play-offs. All opponents must therefore compete in the possibly snow-covered Lambeau Field – and here in the “Frozen Tundra” the Packers are known to feel most comfortable.

With the Packers ‘success it was also clear that the Saints’ two victories (33: 7 with the Carolina Panthers) and the Seahawks (26:23 with the San Francisco 49ers) were meaningless for the “First Round Bye”. New Orleans around Drew Brees (201 yards, three TDs) and Seattle around Russell Wilson (176 yards, two TDs) have to get down to work in the Wild Card Round.

By the way, the Kansas City Chiefs are allowed to rest, which was already clear before this week 17. The reigning Super Bowl champion had already been named the most successful team in the entire NFL early this season and will always have home rights in the Arrowhead Stadium in the play-offs parallel to the Packers in the NFC – and was allowed to finish This Sunday (local time) with spared staff (Chad Henne represented Patrick Mahomes and achieved two touchdown passes) a 21:38 against the Los Angeles Chargers around Justin Herbert (302 yards, three TDs, no int.) allow.

Bears are happy about Cards defeat

Incidentally, Chicago, which, as mentioned at the beginning, lost 16:35 to Green Bay, were also allowed to lose. The last strong Bears moved into the play-offs anyway, because at the same time the Arizona Cardinals did not get past a 7:18 at the Los Angeles Rams. And that, although LA competed without some professionals and also without playmaker Jared Goff (thumb injury). The 25-year-old John Wolford, actually a financial expert on the road, achieved decent values ​​at his first start in the NFL (231 passing yards, 56 rushing yards, no touchdown, one interception) and also achieved the 18: 7 over time because of the up on the other hand, Cards quarterback Kyler Murray failed early and intervened again late after a long treatment. Without success, Arizona was eliminated.

Titans madness knocks back Colts

There was still one decision left by the AFC: Who would crown the AFC South? Here the Indianapolis Colts involved presented, won against the weakest team in the NFL (Jacksonville Jaguars) 28:14. Playmaker Philip Rivers (164 passing yards, one TD, one Int.) And the whole team were able to rely on rookie running back Jonathan Taylor. He reeled off an incredible 253 rushing yards including two touchdowns. With the win, Indy also threw out the hopeless and ultimately disappointed Miami Dolphins.


Derrick Henry

Once again it was unstoppable: Titans ace Derrick Henry.

The play-off ticket was guaranteed for the Colts, just not yet first place in the AFC South and a related home game at the start of the NFL finals next week. And nothing came of it, although it seemed possible. Because division competitor Tennessee fought a real battle with the Houston Texans, it went wild back and forth. Would you like some examples? The Titans gave a 24: 9 out of hand, were back 31:35 late, then led again 38:35, before Houston’s kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn set 51 yards to 38:38 shortly before the end. But a crazy throw from Tennessee’s quarterback Ryan Tannehill on receiver AJ Brown for 52 yards and the subsequent field goal from substitute kicker Sam Sloman, who also had luck with the post, established the 41:38 and rank 1 when the clock ran out. The biggest thanks went to the running back machine Derrick Henry, who reached a phenomenal 250 rushing yards plus two touchdowns that day and at the same time only the eighth player in NFL history with over 2000 rushing yards (2027 plus 17 TDs) within became a regular season.
