Another week, another win for the teams from Texas, running the state record to 22-8. Both have wrapped up divisions but accomplished it in very different ways. The Cowboys did it before touching the field thanks to a NYG loss on Thursday. The Texans took it down to the wire and gutted out a win on the strength of a missed field goal. One more dress rehearsal for each and then its showtime. Let the games continue….
Just get in and anything can happen right? Nah, it doesn’t work like that in the NFL. There are no Cinderella teams that go all the way to the Superbowl. The inferior playoff teams usually get ousted pretty quickly.
One team could have used a win in week 16, and the other one had literally nothing to play for.
Ho Ho Hold on a minute. Them Boys looked extra saucy this week. They installed a game plan before they knew they had the division locked up. They executed that game plan and drubbed a good football team with the playoffs on the line. This team has definitely earned the right to use the mantra : “Finish the Fight”
Tied at the half they scored 21 unanswered points in the 3rd and 4th quarters. The defense banged up as it was put on a great show pressuring Mr. Highland Park himself. The homecoming was all but comfortable for Clayton Kershaw’s bestie.
The NFC looks strong, and I’m not actively hoping to play anyone. But the road runs through DFW which was also the case in the MLB and NHL this year, let’s hope they can ‘Finish this Fight.’
