NFL Week 15 Recap – Division Matchups

NFL Week 15 Recap – Division Matchups

The following is a recap of games played between teams from the same division

Houston Texans 29, Indianapolis Colts 17

The Colts played very good football, but the Texans played great. These two teams will matchup in the season finale and it should be another hard fought game. Arian Foster erupted for 165 yards on the ground as Andre Johnson went for 151 and a TD through the air. The win clinches the division for the Texans and should be a good foot to push off from in what they will hope will be a long run in the playoffs. J.J. Watt was a force with 10 tackles, 3 sacks and a forced fumble.

New Orleans Saints 41, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0

It’s frustrating to be shutout and have a team hang 41 points on your team, but the Bucs need some more maturity and leadership from the coaches to keep the players focused (5 turnovers). The Saints used them as punching bags to take their own frustrations out on a season (and pre-season) in which many things were against them. Their head coach is still in limbo, but as long as Drew Brees is part of the organization, they will reload and come out with a vengeance next year and they’ve missed the opportunity to be the first team to have a home field for a Super Bowl appearance.

Green Bay Packers 21, Chicago Bears 13

Aaron Rodgers was excellent and was instrumental in locking up the NFC North. His 3 TD passes to James Jones were pinpoint accurate. Despite two missed field goals by Mason Crosby, the Pack was still able to fend off any comeback attempts the Bears could muster. The Bears still have a shot at the playoffs, but they’ll have to get past the desperate Cardinals and underachieving Lions who would love to play a spoiler role.

Oakland Raiders 15, Kansas City Chiefs 0

He’s been a consistent scoring threat for the Raiders ever since he was drafted with the shocking 17th pick of the 2000 draft; Sebastian Janikowski gave Oakland all their points in a shutout for the hometown crowd. The Raiders air raid was just as futile as Brady Quinn and the Chiefs’ offering. The other bright spot in the game aside from field goals was the Oakland running game. A healthy Darren McFadden went for 110 yards and side-kick Mike Goodson added 89.
