Week 15 of the 2022 NFL season will be best remembered for some storming comebacks. Heading a night of freaky results was Minnesota’s 39-36 OT win against Indianapolis a game they were trailing 33-0 in at the half! It was compelling Saturday Night viewing, however, you have to feel a pang of sympathy for Matt Ryan.
He now has two dubious records against his name as he was of course the Atlanta QB in that epic Super Bowl loss to New England. In that one, the lead was only 25 points but hey it’s not something to boast about.

San Francisco 21 @ Seattle 13
Christian McCaffrey had another big night putting up 108 yards. This win means it’s pretty much certain that the 49ers will end up winning the NFC West and the No One seed is not completely out of the question. The McCaffery signing looks more and more inspiring every week!
Saturday Night Game
It was well worth sitting up for and as mentioned above you have to feel for Matt Ryan. Having said that his second-half performance didn’t help their cause. Kirk Cousins had a near career night with 460 yards passing and four TDs. He had a shocker in the first half but showed a lot of mental grit to haul the Vikings off the canvas.
In the night’s other game, Baltimore’s AFC title hopes took a dive. They struggled badly on offense without Lamar Jackson who is still out with a knee injury. Desean Watson had a steady night on his home debut but looked a long way off his best. Still, it was enough to win this one.

Sunday Early Games
The pick of these was the all AFC battle between the Bills & Dolphins, which saw Buffalo win it with a last-gasp field goal in snowy conditions. Josh Allen had another big night with 304 yards & 4 TDs. The big surprise came in Dallas where the Jags got an unlikely win thanks to a tying field goal as time expired and a returned interception in OT. This pretty much ended any hopes Dallas had of winning the NFC East, however, suddenly Jacksonville is genuine postseason contenders in the AFC. They need some help but we won’t be surprised if the win the AFC South.

Sunday Late Games
Not a lot to see here apart from a rare Denver win and of course another decent performance by Tom Brady, which ended up being in vane. The Buccs led 17-0 in this one but a string of failed fourth-down conversions let the Bengals back into it.

Sunday Night Game
The Giants took a big step towards securing a wild card slot with this win. They didn’t look impressive though and we suspect they will make a sharp exit if they do get there. Washington is probably a franchise QB away from competing and lost largely due to the 10 points they gave away from turnovers.
New York Giants 20 @ Washington 12
Monday Night Football
LA Rams 12 @ 24 Green Bay
The Packer’s revival continues. This was their second consecutive win and at 6-8, they still have a chance at the final wild card slot if they win out. Their defense is starting to click and they held the Rams to 156 yards of total offense!
