Meanwhile, Cam Newton and the defending NFC Champions continue to limp towards the finish line in what has been a disappointing 2016 campaign. Carolina fell at home to the Falcons 33-16 to officially clinch a losing season. Last time these two teams faced off it was Tampa Bay picking up the 17-14 win earlier this year in Charlotte. ...

A funny thing happened in Jacksonville on Sunday. The Jaguars won a football game, defeating the Tennessee Titans 38-17. It was the team's first victory in the last 10 tries. The headline of the sports section in the Florida Times Union (Jax paper) read, "Hallelujah." The Colts traveled out West to do battle and returned home a 33-25 loser. While the loss officially eliminated the squad from playoff contention, the reality is their hopes were slim to none well before that. While the Jags have won just three times on the season, thier first one came against Indianapolis at home earlier this season. ... Read More

This is basically a game for the AFC North title. If Pittsburgh wins, they go to the playoffs and win the division. If Baltimore wins, they still have to beat Cincinnati on the road to claim the division.

The Texans lead the all-time series 6-4 and have won six of the last seven vs. the Bengals. ... Read More
