Sprint successes in the two advances of the sixteenth day: the Packers consolidate the best league record and their qb surpasses the legend Favre
Green Bay and Indianapolis give each other a nice Christmas present: crucial sprint victories in the advances of the 16th day of the NFL. Rodgers wins and shatters records, Wentz wins and takes some revenge.
Green Bay Packers-Cleveland Brows 24-22
The Packers season (12-3) is confirmed as magical. Because another victory arrives, and so they consolidate the best record in the league, because everything is fine for the Wisconsin greens, because records are raining. Let’s go in order. Beating Cleveland turned out to be more complicated than expected. The Browns (7-8) were playing for the season: they fielded the strength of desperation. And there was a near blow: Rasul Douglas’ interception that closed the game was preceded by a detention that could have been, and probably should have been sanctioned as pass interference. And since it happened with 43 ”to play on the 40 yards of Green Bay and Cleveland a field goal would have been enough to win, it was a decisive referee decision. The other highlight was the record set by Aaron Rodgers. Who launched for 3 tries, confirming himself as the favorite in an MVP key. The first touchdown is epochal: the 443rd launched for Green Bay, a record every era in the glorious history of the franchise. He thus overtook Brett Favre, who with a tribute video on the Lambeau Field giant screen congratulated his successor and asked him to “win another Super Bowl”. Rodgers set the record in the 211th game, Favre had used 255 to launch 442 touchdowns. The Californian quarterback then signed 2 tries for Adams. Another record: 66 on the Rodgers-Adams axis is the quarterback-receiver record in Packers history, the one on the Rodgers-Nelson track broken. However, the Packers, ahead 24-12, then took a big risk despite 4 interceptions in Mayfield and 5 sacks. The Browns are back under dragged by the runs of Chubb (126 yards), thanks to a couple of unusual drops by Adams. Up to the controversial final, yet another mockery for the Browns, who have lost too many times in the sprint: a compromised season.
Arizona Cardinals-Indianapolis Colts 16-22
This time Wentz wins. The Colts (9-6) take their sixth victory in their last seven outings approaching the playoffs. This time, with the offensive line without three holders, and with a fourth, Fisher, who gets hurt during the race in progress, the races of Jonathan Taylor, best NFL running back for yards produced, only work at times, even if it still goes over the hill. odds 100. It is the discussed quarterback who has to make the difference, and this time he succeeds. Finding in the end zone first the eternal TY Hilton and then with a feat in the last quarter the Carneade Patmon for 14 yards and 6 points. Indy’s defense despite Leonard’s absence (Covid protocol) forces a safety to Kyler Murray, who doesn’t get it right by mistake. Messy, curmudgeon, never accurate. The Cardinals (10-5) continue the free fall: third consecutive defeat. They lose the top of the NFC West, now the prerogative of the Los Angeles Rams, and risk entering the playoffs as a wild card and without certainty. Kicker’s mistakes do not help in the occasion, veteran Matt Prater misses from 51 and 41 yards, and even an additional point. The goals of Chase Edmonds on the run and Antoine Wesley in the grip are flashes in the dark. The final on side kick fails: without Hopkins, with the attack jammed, for Arizona the road becomes uphill. And the calendar doesn’t help: next challenge in Dallas, at the Cowboys …
