The regular season will conclude Sunday night with a game that decides the NFC East, but there are still several other teams fighting for seeding and even playoff spots as the season comes to a close.
Week 16 got off to a record-breaking start with Calvin Johnson eclipsing Jerry Rice’s decades-old single-season record for receiving yards. His Lions lost, however, to the surging Falcons. The rest of the Week 16 slate features a few duds but mostly pivotal games that will have a big impact on the playoff picture.
The first week of the NFL season provided surprises and story lines that will continue into this week. From RGIII’s dominant debut performance to the possible NFC Championship preview between Green Bay and San Francisco, Week 1 started the the 2012 season out with positive momentum. Let’s hope Week is even better.
