Not much was decided around the National Football League this week, as it appears we are headed toward an awesome climax to what has already been a dramatic season.
Thanksgiving brought us some high-scoring affairs, as all three road teams took care of business, while both the New York Jets and Detroit Lions were all but eliminated from playoff contention. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins made emphatic statements.
It also appeared as though the Dallas Cowboys' playoff hopes came crashing down, as they were practically blown out of their home stadium by Washington. That changed dramatically when a multitude of different teams ahead of Dallas in the NFC went down to defeat.
Sunday brought us a little more intrigue. Colin Kaepernick, making his second NFL start over Alex Smith, led the San Francisco 49ers to an impressive victory, and the New York Giants returned from a bye to throttle a Green Bay Packers team coming off five consecutive victories.
We saw the Denver Broncos practically wrap up the AFC East with a close victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, who are now the only team in the NFL mathematically eliminated from postseason contention.
OK, so some stuff did happen here.
Here are my weekly playoff odds for all 32 NFL teams. Now that we are hitting the latter quarter of the regular season, things are starting to fall in place.
