Rundown

This game was over after the coin flip. Honestly, lets say you’re the Packers: You win the coin toss. Then you think it’s a good idea to defer and give the ball to the number one offense in football (at home) when your secondary is banged up and hasn’t showed signs of being able to stop anyone? The Falcons then made them look like a Rob Ryan led defense and drove 80 yards to score on their first drive for the eighth straight game. After that, the game was a disaster for anyone who is affiliated with the Packers. Matt Ryan proved that he’s not the choke artist we once thought he was, dominating this game with 5 total touchdowns. Julio Jones also looked untouchable, and now the Falcons have punched a date in Houston against another powerful offense in New England led by the living legend himself, Tom Brady.

Rundown

Can we take a moment of silence to appreciate the defensive game plan that was made to counter the Pittsburgh Steelers offense this weekend? Seriously, Matt Patricia‘s defense made the killer B’s look like the honeybees. There was nothing to see on the Steelers’ side of the football and with the injury to Le’Veon Bell, their offense could barely make a move. The Patriots showed pure dominance in all facets of the football game. No interceptions. No fumbles. Honestly, the only thing you could be mad about as a Pats fan is a missed extra point by Stephen Gostkowski. The wide receivers were always open, and the human JUGS machine hit them right in the numbers. Truly a dominant performance from a dynasty that continues to rewrite the history books.
