Prokies in the NFL: Week 16
Only one week is left in the NFL season and there are still eleven teams that have not clinched a spot in the playoffs....its going to get messy!
The Seahawks secured their spot and home field advantage in the playoffs this week in their win over the Rams. Brown helped pave the way as he still ranked the sixth tackle in PFF grades.
Ford had five receptions for 37 yards this week, three of those being first down completions. The Dolphins were able to capture a win over the Raiders helping their playoff case.
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 182 yards in the 4th quarter tonight, tied for his most ever yards in a 4th quarter (2013 Week 15 vs Cardinals).— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 27, 2020
Fitz was 5-6 for 154 yards and 1 TD when throwing for more than 5 yards downfield (all in the 4th). Tua Tagovailoa was 3-7 for 35 yards. pic.twitter.com/ufUbahpApi
Thomas had seven receptions for 63 yards in Washington's loss against the Panthers. Washington still controls their own destiny, but it is a must win this weekend for the Football Team. I think a big day from Thomas will equal a win against the Eagles.
Clark recorded four tackles and a pass deflection in the Ravens win against the Giants. The Ravens are also in the hunt, so a win against the Bengals would send them to the postseason.
Ravens safety Chuck Clark, one of the few players from the 2017 team that got ousted from playoff hunt with a season-ending loss to Bengals, said a game three years ago has no control over this one but ...— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) December 30, 2020
"It's something that is in the back of your mind," he said.
Terrell recorded five tackles in the Steelers comeback win over the Colts. Thanks to a big second half effort by the Terrell and the defense, they were able to clinch the division (along with the Browns loss).
Tremaine recorded five tackles in their blowout win over the Patriots and the Bills were able to clinch the division over the Dolphins with the win. If you told me five years ago the Bills and the Dolphins would lead the AFC east in 2020......I wouldn't have believed you.
Kyle recorded three tackles in their win over Jacksonville that kept the Bears playoff hopes alive. A Bears win or a Cardinals loss sends them to the playoffs!
Kendall recorded five tackles that included one for loss in Washington's loss. While most the Washington defense looked out of sorts, Kendall had one of his best games of the year.
I’ve yet to see a screen get by Kendall Fuller consistently this season, he’s been so good stopping those plays. #WashingtonFootball— Chip Brierre (@Chip_Brierre) December 27, 2020
Settle recorded a tackle for Washington on Sunday.
The Joey Slye Section
On the other side of the Washington loss, Slye and the Panthers were able to make the Football Team's path to the playoffs a bit more difficult. Joey didn't kick any FG's this week as he is still 29-36 on the year.

Head Coach Bruce Arians was able to resurrect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 as they are headed to the playoffs for the first time in thirteen years. (With the help of some key pick-ups, of course.)
