Those who figured a long time ago that the No. 13 is unlucky obviously did not have this week of the 2012 NFL season in mind (how could they?).
The New England Patriots, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons all won division titles, and the Houston Texans clinched a playoff berth.
The Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers won huge road games, both by scoring on the final play of regulation.
The Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams won in overtime, knocking off the first-place Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers, respectively.
The Baltimore Ravens saw their 16-game home winning streak (including playoffs) come to an end, as did the Cleveland Browns' 12-game road losing streak.
And the NFC East got really interesting as both the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys are just one game behind the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
Again, we return with this week’s game grades for all 32 teams. So many factors go into these marks, which are representative of their performances this week and not the entire season. And also bear in mind that these are not based solely on wins and losses, margin of victory and total yards. Many elements are involved, including the all-important eye test.
So let’s take a look at this week’s model students, as well as class clowns.
