NFL Wild Week 16 winners and losers, as well as a ranking of all 32 teams and a look at the playoff picture

The Ravens also brought gifts on Christmas, so it wasn’t just Santa. The Ravens made a statement by beating the 49ers badly on Monday night, and it wasn’t even the biggest surprise of the day.

They beat the Chiefs 20–14, despite the fact they didn’t make a pass following the first quarter. That honor goes to the Raiders.

To give you an idea of how odd that is, no team has won after the first quarter without completing any passes in 23 years.

That’s all we have time for today. We’ll also talk about the winners or losers from Week 16. Oh, and we’ll also talk about the playoff picture. We just got Pete Prisco’s most recent Power Rankings, and we will also include those.

This was the last game of Week 16 of the NFL season. On Christmas Day, the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 33–19.

There are only two weeks remain in the normal season. In the middle of January, the playoffs will begin.

Each conference has seven spots in the playoffs, with four for division winners and three for “wild card” teams.

After Week 16, the Baltimore Ravens (12-3) or the Miami Dolphins (11-4) have both secured their spots in the playoffs.

You should not sit this man down. Flacco is on an amazing run right now. He has had three straight games in 300 yards or more and multiple touchdowns. To be clear, he has not been a game manager at all.

In each of his starts for the Browns, he has thrown the ball at least 42 times. Volume isn’t a problem at all.

This week, Flacco is the player to watch if you like great revenge games. He and Amari Cooper cook at the same level as Volek and Bennett.

The quarterback Flacco is likely to pick off a pass or two, maybe even three. But that’s not a big deal if he throws for 300 yards and two or three touchdowns.

We won’t try to sell you on Carr because it’s clear that he’s a flawed QB who could fail at any time.

But he has also scored more than two touchdowns three games in a row, and the Buccaneers are going to be a great opponent for him.

The worst defense in the NFL against the pass is Tampa’s, which gives up 264.1 yards per game and 7.6 yards each attempt.

Carr has a good receiving corps that his disposal, as well as he’s skilled enough to destroy a weak secondary. If you want to broadcast your way to the title, Carr is a good deep league player.

The Bears’ backfield has been set up in a “spin-the-wheel” fashion for most of this season, so it frequently felt like an attack on fantasy football players. The shot hit Herbert on Sunday, and as usual, he was pretty good.

Herbert ran for 20 plays, gained 112 yards, and scored one touchdown. He also caught one pass for nine yards and was targeted twice. He ran for more than 10 yards for the second time this season or the fourth time in his career.

Herbert has been great this season when he’s been healthy, averaging 4.5 meters per run and 4.9 yards per touch.

Yes, you may remember that he was everyone’s favorite underused Chicago player before Roschon Johnson came along.

It seems likely that Herbert will lead the Bears’ RBBC next weekend against Atlanta, even if D’Onta Foreman isn’t available. If you or your opponent need an RB, don’t leave him off of the line.

It’s likely that someone in your league put away CEH after hearing that Jerick McKinnon (groin) was put on IR. Isiah Pacheco left Monday’s game via a head injury, which put him in a bigger role than expected. He gained 48 yards from scrimmage on just seven plays.

He made the best play when he dodged a hit and ran 32 yards on a screen that shouldn’t have gone anywhere. Edwards-Helaire is a good runner who isn’t very flashy. He gained 101 yards towards New England just a week ago.

Even though they lost to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16, the San Francisco 49ers are still in a good position to get the top spot in the NFC.

In the AFC, the Ravens are the choice for a first-round bye. A few teams have already locked up spots in the playoffs.

We looked at the playoff picture for both leagues and the odds for the teams most likely to make the playoffs, win their division, and even make it to the Super Bowl.

That way, you can see the most probable matchups in each league and get a sneak peek at the teams that will be competing for the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.
