If you missed the game on Monday night between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, you missed one of the best games of the season. It’s becoming increasingly likely that this could end up being a Super Bowl matchup in just a few months, but the Saints might have some other plans. The Rams are one of the favourites to come out of the NFC, along with the Saints, and the Chiefs have one of the best offenses in the AFC. It was clear early in the season that the Week 11 game between these two teams would be the most entertaining game of the regular season, and it definitely lived up to the hype.

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.
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.
More often than not, the primetime games (Thursday night, Sunday night, Monday night) don’t live up to the hype, especially TNF and those Color Rush jerseys. While some are better than others, it’s impossible to forget those horrendous Jaguars and Titans uniforms.
Luckily, last Thursday’s matchup between the Rams and Vikings didn’t feature their Color Rush uniforms and instead actually provided football fans with an entertaining game between two of the most talented teams in the NFC. Both teams had been having very different seasons leading up to this point. The Rams were 3-0, surrendering just 36 points over those three games while also averaging 34 points scored per game. Meanwhile, despite the addition of Kirk Cousins to their already strong roster this offseason, the Vikings had stumbled through their first three games of the year, entering Thursday night with a 1-1-1 record.

We’re just three weeks into the season and some big storylines are already starting to unfold. Rookie quarterbacks are already starting to make an impact on their teams. First, in Week 1 it was Sam Darnold winning his first career start. In Week 3, Baker Mayfield saw his first real taste of NFL action on Thursday night when he entered the game for the Browns. After Tyrod Taylor got off to a slow start, Hue Jackson decided to make the quarterback switch and it paid off big time. Mayfield finished the game with 201 yards on 17 of 23 attempts, and although he didn’t throw for a touchdown, he still (technically) found a way to get into the endzone.
Wild Card Weekend in the NFL was exactly as the name suggests: wild. It started with Kansas City vs Tennessee in a game that many people were expecting the Chiefs to win easily. After building a 21-3 lead, it looked like Kansas City was running away with the game heading into halftime. But right at the end of the 2nd quarter, the Chiefs lost one of their top playmakers in Travis Kelce after a big hit.
It took until the very end of Week 17, but the playoff picture is finally set. While many of the usual favourites found their way back into the postseason, a few teams are in the playoffs for the first time in a while. Most notably, the Buffalo Bills have finally ended their 17 year playoff drought, but while the playoff drought in Buffalo was the longest, it wasn’t the only drought snapped this season.
