JuJu’s boo boo scuttles the Steelers for good in the Big Easy

NFL Update:

  • Saints steal one right out of the hands of Ju Ju and the Steelers, leaving Pittsburgh on the outside looking in, and hoping for help next week from of all teams … the Browns. Yes, the refs played a part in this with a very questionable pass interference penalty on 4 and 2, which kept the NO game winning drive alive. But you simply cannot blame anyone but yourself when you can’t hold on to the ball in the clutch, and when your coach loses his marbles by rolling the dice in his own territory (while holding a four point lead) with a ridiculous fake punt. Shame on the front office if they don’t take action to help the players help themselves with a new leadership; you simply can’t do things like that at this level, not to mention blowing big leads in those other games this year. The Steelers are clearly underachieving and something needs to change. Ben, AB and all of the other talented players on both sides of the ball deserve better. #Steelers #Saints
  • Bears travel west and things pan out pretty well against the San Fran panhandlers. After clinching No. 3, they’ve earned the right to relax a bit in the season finale, which won’t sit too well with the defending champs. #Bears #FortyNiners
  • Seattle sends a message to the rest of the NFC that they may well be the most complete team, using all of its offensive weapons, along with some opportunistic defense, to overcome massively talented Mahomes and the super charged Chiefs. Yes, they will be a wild card, but the Hawks are primed to weed out the higher seeds because they have the best QB and the best running game. #Seahawks #Chiefs
  • Rams use a bruising running game to trample the punchless Cards. For AZ, it’s probably not a good that Larry Fitz has a more productive day throwing the ball than bonus baby Josh Rosen. #Rams #Cardinals
  • Lions lay down and play dead very obediently, all to the liking of the grateful Vikings. #Vikings #Lions
  • Looks like the best Xmas present the Eggles got was Carson coming out and Big St. Nick coming down the chimney to save the the day. #Texans #Eagles
  • Boys maintain their poise and grind their way to a satisfying win and the division title. #Buccaneers #Cowboys
  • Panthers had better get used to playing from behind with Heineke. After a couple of heroic outings Carolina’s defense appeared to throw up the white flag in a decisive 3rd quarter run by the Falcons. #Falcons #Panthers
  • Colts stay in prime position for the post-season with a hard earned win over the very competitive G-men. Andrew Luck simply wouldn’t be stopped, leading the Colts on a last minute touchdown drive. Also key for the horseshoes was some great run defense, limiting Barkley to 2 yards per carry. #Giants #Colts
  • Blake shakes off the rust and in a new role as relief specialist shows he’s no bust. #Jaguars #Dolphins
  • Another heart breaking defeat for Darnold and the snake-bitten Jets, as Rodgers leads the Pack back in a chaotic 4Q. Lay this one on the doorstep of the coaching staff … a not-so-sweet 16 are a telling indictment for a lack of game preparation. #Packers #Jets
  • Usual outcome in New England, as Bills fold without much resistance in another gift-wrapped AFC East title campaign for the blessed Patriots. #Patriots #Bills
