NFL EveryMinute


arizona-cardinals-200Arizona Cardinals – Ugly game all around but when the dust settled, the Cards kept pace for the #2 seed in the NFC.


atlanta-falcons-200Atlanta Falcons – At what point do the Falcons realize that they don’t have elite talent in Matt Ryan?


baltimore-ravens-200Baltimore Ravens – The Ravens last four games have all been decided on the final possession – this has really been a crazy year for Ravens fans.


buffalo-bills-200Buffalo Bills – Sammy Watkins had the game we’ve all been waiting for, but a defense that looked so good against the Patriots last week was pretty bad this week.


carolina-panthers-200Carolina Panthers – The Panthers defense reminded everyone why they’re the team to beat this year.


chicago-bears-200Chicago Bears – The Bears ruined Brett Favre night at Lambeau and are quietly creeping up on an NFC wildcard spot.


cincinnati-bengals-200Cincinnati Bengals – Away from the bright lights of prime-time, Dalton and the Bengals played really well.


cleveland-browns-200Cleveland Browns – Just your average “rip your heart out” loss for the Browns – we almost feel sorry for them.


dallas-cowboys-200Dallas Cowboys – Romo done for the season, as are the Cowboys chances – time to lose out and get a top 5 pick.


denver-broncos-200Denver Broncos – Brock Osweiler is making Broncos fans forget all about Manning – that was a very good game against a very good defense.


detroit-lions-200Detroit Lions – Struggling to decide if the Lions are returning to form, or if the Eagles are just that bad.


green-bay-packers-200Green Bay Packers – The Packers lost their hold on the NFC North and recent struggles indicate that missing the playoffs might not be as far fetched as we thought three weeks ago.


houston-texans-200Houston Texans – The offense looked good, which was no surprise against a weak secondary, but the defense is the real story as they continue to impress.


indianapolis-colts-200Indianapolis Colts – Matt Hasselbeck continues to win games for the Colts which makes letting Luck heal up an easy decision, and making life difficult for sports handicapping services.


jacksonville-jaguars-200Jacksonville Jaguars – Playoffs were a long shot heading into this week, but losing to a 2-8 Chargers team at home isn’t what playoff hopefuls do.


kansas-city-chiefs-200Kansas City Chiefs – Six weeks ago we had KC pegged as one of the worst teams in the league – now they are holding onto a playoff spot.


miami-dolphins-200Miami Dolphins – After Suh said that he runs the defense, they go out and get torched by the Jets… oh and the offensive coordinator was fired after the game. Dumpster. Fire.


minnesota-vikings-200Minnesota Vikings – This Vikings team will go as far as Adrian Peterson can carry them, and he looks up to the task.


new-england-patriots-200New England Patriots – Losing the game was tough, but possibly losing Gronk means that 76% of the Patriots offensive production this year is injured.


new-orleans-saints-200New Orleans Saints – For the first time in the Brees/Payton era, the Saints failed to score a touchdown.


new-york-giants-200New York Giants – Eli played terribly until the fourth quarter, but by then the whole was too deep to dig out of.


new-york-jets-200New York Jets – Nothing gets a team back on track quite like playing the Dolphins.


oakland-raiders-200Oakland Raiders – Oakland got an ugly win on the road, keeping their slim playoff chances alive.


philadelphia-eagles-200Philadelphia Eagles – When players start pointing fingers after the game, it’s a sign that the coach has lost a bit of control.


pittsburgh-steelers-200Pittsburgh Steelers – Questionable play calling cost the Steelers – well, that and their inability to make a tackle.


san-diego-chargers-200San Diego Chargers – The Chargers are still fighting and look to be embracing their role of “spoiler” for the rest of the year.


san-francisco-49ers-200San Francisco 49ers – When your season is going bad, the bad calls seem to go against you, and this week was no different for the Niners.


seattle-seahawks-200Seattle Seahawks – The Seahawks defense is no longer an elite unit, which means the offense (now missing Jimmy Graham) will have to win some games.


saint-louis-rams-200St. Louis Rams – The wheels have completely come off the Rams’ bus – it’s time for Fisher to go.


tampa-bay-buccaneers-200Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Everyone was riding high on the Bucs heading into the game, but they just showed that they aren’t quite there yet.


tennessee-titans-200Tennessee Titans – You have to hand it to the Titans – at 2-9, they still look to be fighting.


washington-redskins-200Washington Redskins – A week after getting blown out by Carolina, the Redskins recover and take control of the division.
