NFL Week 17 Recap – Division Matchups, Part 3

NFL Week 17 Recap – Division Matchups, Part 3

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

Cincinnati Bengals 23, Baltimore Ravens 17

Both teams rested their starters for the majority of this essentially meaningless game. But the crowd did get a decent holiday show from the backups. The Ravens will host former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano and his Indianapolis Colts next Sunday. The Bengals will travel to Houston in a 2012 wild-card rematch against the Texans. This time the Bengals have a lot more momentum against the flat Texans but Houston is the superior team on paper.

San Francisco 49ers 27, Arizona Cardinals 13

Brian Hoyer did a fine job for what has been a dismal year for Arizona quarterbacks. He was also able to finally get first round pick Michael Floyd involved in the offense as he produced 166 yards receiving and a score. They were ultimately unable to get past the Niners on the scoreboard and ownership decided to move on from Ken Whisenhunt who is already getting interest from the Bills.

San Diego Chargers 24, Oakland Raiders 21

Another year yields another double-digit loss season for the Raiders. They managed to get to 8-8 last year but only halved that total this year, taking a step back. As a result many assistant coaches were fired, including offensive coordinator Gregg Knapp. The Chargers of course will be replacing their head coach and general manager in what will be a season of lots of change for the AFC West, except for the superior Broncos.

Denver Broncos 38, Kansas City Chiefs 3

It’s rather unfortunate that the best team in the league ended up hosting the worst team in the NFL for the finale. As expected, Peyton Manning got his 300 yards and 3 touchdowns raising his totals to 4659 yards, 37 touchdowns and a superb 105.8 passer rating to mark the second best statistical season of his illustrious career. No one should doubt his being able to keep the Broncos on top of the AFC for at least 3 more years and contend for a Super Bowl every year. The Chiefs will move on from Romeo Crennel and will have the top pick in the draft to try things again. They have 5 Pro Bowlers on their team, so they could bounce back quite well with the right moves.
