Browns, Texans & Panthers Sneak Out Wins in Week 15

The Sunday Night Football game came to an end with the Baltimore Ravens topping the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-7. It was a rough night for the Jaguars, scoring just a lone touchdown in the third quarter. The win for the Ravens kept them in the top spot in the AFC with their 11th win. The loss for Jacksonville pushed them into a tie with Indianapolis and Houston for a three way tie at the top of the AFC South. That game was one of the more interesting games on the Week 15 slate. Let’s take a look at some of the best games in Week 15:

Cleveland Browns 20-17 over Chicago Bears

What a wild game. The Cleveland Browns trailed 17-7 heading into the fourth quarter, but got great play from Joe Flacco, and two field goals from Dustin Hopkins to win the game. Chicago had a chance at the end of the game, in fact Justin Fields threw a hail mary into the end zone, which went into and out of a Bears receivers hands. The win was a massive one for Cleveland, keeping them at 9-5 on the season, which is the top wildcard spot in the AFC. The loss for Chicago essentially ended their postseason chances. They are now 5-9 on the season.

Houston Texans 19-16 over Tennessee Titans 

These two teams needed nearly all of the overtime period to settle the score. Houston scored a touchdown to Noah Brown in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Then, with two seconds to go, the field goal went through to give Houston the win. The win was massive for the Texans because it was without their starting quarterback CJ Stroud. Case Keenum went 23 of 356 for 229 yards and a touchdown in the game. The win moved Jacksonville to 8-5, and right in the middle of the AFC for a postseason spot.

Carolina Panthers 9-7 over Atlanta Falcons

In the lowest scoring game of the weekend, Carolina got three field goals, including one in the final second of the game to win the game. The win was with Bryce Young completing 18 of 24 passes for 167 yards. Desmond Ridder was not super sharp for Atlanta, with just 152 yards and a touchdown. The loss for Atlanta sent them to 6-8 on the season, and a game behind both the Saints and Buccaneers in the divisional race. The win for the Panthers was just their second of the season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-20 over Green Bay Packers

A massive NFC game went to the Buccaneers. Maker Mayfield was tremendous, with 381 yards and four touchdown passes to beat the Packers. Rachaad White and Chris Godwin were the big guys on offense, with Godwin coming away with 155 yards. The loss for the Packers was their second straight, and a big one. The Packers are now 6-8, and have fallen behind the Rams for a postseason spot in the NFC. Jordan Love, in the loss, was 29 of 39 for 284 yards and 2 touchdowns.

San Francisco 49ers 45-29 over Arizona Cardinals

It was rinse, wash and repeat for the best team in football. The 49ers won the NFC West, and won their 11th game of the season. Christian McCaffrey was tremendous, with three touchdowns, while quarterback Brock Purdy tossed four of them. Purdy is one of the favorites for MVP of the league. Now, the 49ers will look to finish strong to keep the top seed in the NFC playoff picture.

Buffalo Bills 31-10 over Dallas Cowboys

The win for the Buffalo Bills moved them to 8-6. Buffalo was led by a dominant rushing attack from James Cook. He ran the ball 25 times for 179 yards and a touchdown in the game. The Cowboys struggled all game, including just 21 of 34 passing from Dak Prescott and an interception. The loss dropped Dallas out of the lead in the NFC East, awaiting the Philadelphia Monday Night Football game.
