The Green Bay Packers fell to the Minnesota Vikings in the regular season finale and therefore made it into the postseason as a wild card team as opposed to a third seed. This means they don’t get to host a game at Lambeau Field in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, but many would argue they’re better off.
A victory over the Vikings would have forced them into playing host to the Vikings again a week later in the Wild Card round, while many believe the team they will play instead, Washington, isn’t nearly that strong. Losing to Minnesota also has the added benefit of avoiding a third game between the two this season, especially if the tough Seattle Seahawks can down Minnesota on Sunday.
Game Womens Zach Bogosian Jersey Despite those two disastrous quarters, the Texans were somehow still in the game going coming out of the half, but it was just more of the same from there on out. Houston couldn’t mount much of a fight –Hoyer added another pick for good measure — and Kansas City ran away with it with a Chris Conley touchdown catch and a Spencer Ware touchdown run.
The night game, well, it was not boring. The Steelers completely dominated a rain-soaked and sloppy first three quarters and took a 15-0 lead into the final frame, and for a while there, it looked pretty possible that neither home team in Saturday’s action would come out with any points on the board.
Daniel Alfredsson Game Jersey Looking to run the clock out, Jeremy Hill fumbled on the next play from scrimmage, and Ben Roethlisberger returned to the game to become the savior for the city of Pittsburgh. He proceeded to lead the Steelers on a 9-play, 74 yard drive (while barely throwing beyond the line of scrimmage) that culminated in a game winning field goal by Chris Boswell. This game-winner was aided by two straight personal foul penalties by the Bengals — a hit to the head by Vontaze Burfict and an incident in the ensuing scrum by Pacman Jones — and it was a chaotic ending to an ugly, insanely strange game.
