Week 12 of the NFL season is one two veteran quarterbacks will want to forget. Meanwhile, Josh Jacobs completed one of the most memorable performances in recent years as he ran riot for the Raiders.

It’s Time…

The Green Bay Packers suffered their eighth loss of the NFL season and may have lost Aaron Rodgers in the process.

While the defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles goes a long way to ending their hopes of the playoffs, some fans will see the silver lining in Rodgers’ injury. The soon-to-be 39-year-old left the field with a rib injury and didn’t return. That allowed Jordan Love to handle a few snaps and promote the idea that now is the time to move Rodgers along and look to the future.

According to FiveThirtyEight, the Packers have just a 3% chance of making the playoffs from here. Not only will they need to win out, but they will also need other results to go their way. Now the question: Do you ride with Rodgers until you’re no longer a mathematical chance, or cut your losses and plan for next season?

Another QB Conundrum

It’s becoming a little bit sad now…

The Denver Broncos traded three players and multiple draft picks for Russell Wilson before signing him to a $245 million contract. In return, they have played with a quarterback that isn’t considered to be in the Top 20 in the NFL right now.

Another week, another loss for the Broncos – their seventh in eight games. This time they fell 23-10 to the Carolina Panthers and frustration is starting to overflow onto the sideline. Mike Purcell couldn’t stop himself from giving Wilson a spray as he walked off the field during the defeat. Perhaps it had something to do with Wilson’s 68.6 passer rating in the second half – the second-worst of the NFL season?

Wilson and the Broncos need to do something different at practice this week. In Week 13, they come up against a smarting Baltimore Ravens as $3.90 and +7.5 underdogs.

Ravens Reeling

Trevor Lawrence had himself a day for the Jacksonville Jaguars who watched what would have been an NFL record 67-yard field goal fall just short with seconds left to secure the 27-26 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Justin Tucker is human, apparently. He fell inches short of a game-winning field goal in this one. Instead of celebrating another Tucker record, all of the talk is about Lawrence who finished up with 321 yards on 29 completions with three touchdowns and no interceptions. His 129.8 passer rating is his best of the season and the first time over 120 since Week 2. His 153 yards and two touchdowns in the 4th quarter helped the Jags to erase a 19-10 deficit.

For the Ravens, it’s another worrying collapse. They’ve dropped a 35-14 lead, 20-3 lead, 20-10 lead and now a 19-10 lead which puts a significant dent in their Super Bowl LVII credentials. At $13 after Week 11, the Ravens are now out to the seventh line of betting at $17.

Josh Jacobs Making History

Josh Jacobs wasn’t a certainty to play in Week 12, but his inclusion ended up as the difference between victory and defeat for the Las Vegas Raiders.

His 84-yard run in overtime wrapped up the 40-34 win over the Seattle Seahawks and rewrote the record books in the process.

Jacobs is the only player since 1950 with 225+ rushing yards and 70+ receiving yards in a single game.

Incredible.

NFL Super Bowl LVII Odds

We’re checking in on the changes in the Super Bowl LVII Odds from Week 11 to 12.

The top of the list is starting to become a little bit congested as we work through the NFL season. For most of it so far, the Buffalo Bills ($5) have sat pretty on the first line of betting. However, as the Kansas City Chiefs ($5) and San Franciso 49ers ($7.50) start to make waves, the Bills are coming under pressure.

As expected, Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins handled the Houston Texans with relative ease and shortened further into $15. Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on the other hand, couldn’t get past the Cleveland Browns and continued to fall down the Top 10 Super Bowl LVII list. The Cincinnati Bengals are the notable movers this week, though. They’ve now won three straight and are 7-2 since starting the NFL season 0-2. While their 20-16 win over the Tennessee Titans wasn’t particularly pretty, it’s enough to see them come into $18 from $23 a week earlier.
