So Long, Mike McCarthy

Well, it finally happened. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has often found himself the target of criticism over the last few years, and this season proved to be the tipping point. The Packers were one of the favourites in the NFC early in the year, with Tony Romo even predicted them to face the Jaguars in the Super Bowl. Now, Jacksonville hasn’t been great either so maybe there’s some sort of Romo Curse, but that’s not the point right now. With the Mike McCarthy era in Green Bay coming to an end, let’s look back on his time in charge of the Packers.

Nick Mullens had a perfect NFL debut

If you hadn’t heard of Nick Mullens before last Thursday, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard of him by now. The former Southern Miss Golden Eagle made his NFL debut for the San Fransisco 49ers on Thursday night against the Raiders, in a game where Mullens wasn’t given much of a chance. Mullens was signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2017 Draft, and had never attempted a pass in an NFL game heading into his first start. While Jimmy G is still the future of the 49ers, Mullens has definitely made a name for himself in his debut.

Andrew Luck and the Colts will win the AFC South

While the Jacksonville Jaguars are the easiest team to talk about in a pretty forgettable AFC South division, the Indianapolis Colts are a team that you should keep an eye on as we enter the second half of the season. Now, I realize it’s crazy to say that a 3-5 team is one to keep an eye on, but the AFC South is up for grabs now that the Jaguars have fallen apart, and a healthy Andrew Luck could be all the Colts need to make the playoffs.

The Cleveland Browns had their best Week 1 in over a decade

The NFL season is officially in full swing, and that means that I’m back to giving you the weekly recap of some of the major headlines from the week that was. So don’t worry if you miss anything, I got you covered. Without wasting any more time, let’s get into it.

As crazy as it sounds, the Browns game was actually very entertaining to watch last week. After an 0-16 season, I wasn’t expecting to say that in Week 1, especially with Baker Mayfield still as the backup in Cleveland. Now look, I realize it ended in a tie, and yes the Browns had more than their fair share of chances to win this game, but despite everything, this is their best start to a season since 2004.

Big Ben Can’t Figure Out Brady and the Patriots

The NFL was treated with a glimpse into the future in Week 15, as the Patriots and Steelers met in Pittsburgh in a matchup that we’ll likely see again in the AFC Championship game. Over his career, Tom Brady has been dominant against the Steelers, owning a 11-2 record against them. However, things seemed different heading into this game. Pittsburgh held the top spot in the conference, and the Patriots looked underwhelming in their Week 14 loss to the Dolphins. The underwhelming play from New England continued in this game, and the Steelers built up a 17-10 lead by halftime. But once again, Brady showed why he’s considered the greatest, leading the Patriots to a 11 point 4th quarter, including a 5 play 77 yard drive that took just 1:10 to take a 27-24 lead. The Steelers still had some time, and it looked like they had scored a late-game touchdown of their own.

Jacksonville Jaguars… 2017 AFC South Champions?

This headline would have been only possible in a video game a few months ago but, before you start laughing, just hear me out. For starters, the Jaguars find themselves at 2-1 and tied with Tennessee for the first place in the division. While this is surprising in itself, even more surprising has been the play of Blake Bortles, who somehow went from the joke of the preseason/training camp to a competent quarterback seemingly over night. Bortles had one of the best games of his career on Sunday against the Ravens, throwing for 244 yards, 4 TDs and surprisingly, no interceptions.
