NFL Week 13 Reaction

Your perfect mix of Sports, unqualified opinions, underwhelming comedy, and below average writing.

A lot has changed in the NFL after this wild Week 13!!!!! The Patriots are number one in the AFC!! Who would have thought huh? Bill Belichick has almost clinched a guaranteed Coach of the Year award by the way this Patriots team has played. Also THE DETROIT LIONS WON A FOOTBALL GAME!!!!!! Not a scrimmage, or a preseason game but the Detroit Lions have won a regular season NFL game. Let's get into it!!!!

Upset of the Week (PIT 20 BAL 19)

Steelers survive game vs Baltimore as Ravens don’t convert 2 pt conversion to take lead.

The upset of the week was originally Lions versus Vikings but wanted to add some variety. The Ravens offense looked off once again as the Ravens scored a late TD to set up to set the game into OT but instead go for two and lose the game by 1. The Ravens have one of the league's best kickers and don't use him to send it to OT. They gambled and lost. The Ravens offense has now looked shaky a couple weeks in a row and the defense had a devastating blow with losing their best cornerback Marlon Humphrey for the year with a shoulder injury. As for the Steelers they stay alive in the playoff hunt.

Game of the Week (DET 29 MIN 27)

Lions score last second TD to secure first W of season!!!!!

THERE ARE NO MORE WINLESS TEAMS IN THE NFL. DETROIT TAKES DOWN MINNESOTA LATE TO GET THEIR FIRST W!!! Dan Campbell and company get a well deserved win as they stun Minnesota. No DeAndre Swift for them so they leaned on Jamaal Williams, TJ Hockenson, and their rookie WR Amon Ra St Brown. They took advantage of a weakened Vikings team who already lost Dalvin Cook and lost Adam Thielen early in the game. They did what their was supposed to do. They contained Mattison who was Cook's talented backup. They basically let Justin Jefferson cook and contained everyone else.

Dummy of the Week (Minnesota Vikings)

Vikings lose Adam Thielen to injury early in game and gives Detroit their first W of the season.

Minnesota..... yes you didn't have Thielen or Cook but you had a capable backup in Mattison and Justin Jefferson went off. There was still no excuse that the Vikings should have lost this game. They still had the better team but here we are laughing at Minnesota for giving Detroit their first W of the season.

Hero of the Week (Amon-Ra St. Brown/Lions)

Amon Ra St Brown has 10 receptions, 86 receiving yards, and the game winning TD to end Detroits losing streak.

THE ROOKIE FROM USC CAME IN CLUTCH. The Lions needed a go to guy to go along with TJ Hockenson with Swift out and he stepped up to the plate. He even got the game winning TD as time expired. Detroit all together deserves a round of applause since they won't be win-less this year!!! Now it is time to build off this W and let it motivate them for next season.
