Week 15 provided the usual fantastic finishes and great individual performances but with the season winding down this week it is time to focus on the playoff race.
The big news is always about the Colts and the Saints as they try to stay undefeated on the year. The Colts went into Jacksonville for a Thursday night football game and the Jaguars put up one heck of a fight. When you have one of the best quarterback’s in the fourth quarter in Peyton Manning you just knew the Colts were going to win. In the end the Colts remained undefeated, but the Saints would not be so lucky.
The Saints welcomed the Dallas Cowboys to New Orleans for a big showdown. The Cowboys lead the game wire to wire and were able to run the ball and pressure Drew Brees most of the night. The Saints made a valiant effort to come back but fell short in the end as the Cowboys were able to put a drive together to give the Saints the first loss of the season.
Week 15 had its share of close games, upsets and record setting performances. The Steelers stayed alive in the playoff hunt and beat the Packers on the very last play of the game. This keeps them alive for an AFC wildcard. The Vikings clinched the division with that loss but it was not a good day as they were embarrassed by Julius Peppers and the Carolina Panthers. After the game there was some controversy as Head Coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre got into a heated discussion on the sideline about his playing time.
The best individual performances of the week belonged to the Cleveland Browns. Josh Cribbs broke the record for kickoff returns with one early in the game against Kansas City and then broke his own record as he returned another one later in the game. His running back teammate James Harrison ran the ball for 286 yards and three scores as the Browns beat the Chiefs.
The AFC wild card is up in the air as there is six teams tied at 7-7 that still have an outside shot at getting to the playoffs and that means there will be some exciting football down the stretch as everyone looks to make the postseason!
