Week 14 of the NFL Season has concluded and there were a few upsets this week that resulted in people being eliminated in survivor. Let's dive into how I did, giving my top 5 options that I gave to pick in Survivor and a trap game to avoid choosing for Week 14 of the NFL season.
Week 14 Top 5 Survivor Options
Week 14 Record (5-0)
Overall Record (54-16)
1. Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears
It got a bit nervous in the 1st half but the Packers realized that this was the Bears and came back. Aaron Rodgers showed that he still owns the Bears as he had an excellent day throwing for 341 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Bears once again disappointed but at least Justin Fields looked good in this game. I still don't understand why Matt Nagy is here as he looks defeated on the sidelines. I would be shocked if he is still the Bears coach for next season as the players and fan base does not want him here next season.
2. Los Angeles Chargers vs New York Giants
Not even a shot as the Chargers all game were dominating the New York Giants excluding garbage time. Justin Herbert was once again excellent for the Chargers making great throws all game. It looks like the Giants have given up on this season as they at times look like they were not trying. At Least Mike Glennon was not completely terrible for the Giants and scored three touchdowns (2 passing and 1 rushing TD).
3. Denver Broncos vs Detroit Lions
Wow, I knew Denver was going to win this game but not by that many points in this game. They won this game 38-10 and the offense was very smooth in this game. Both Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams were the MVP of this game as they both ran all over the Lions this game. Teddy Bridgewater even looked great as he threw for two touchdowns in this game. This defense has gotten a lot better and it is clear Detroit's season is done. The Lions have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. If the Broncos keep this up they could be a dark horse to make the playoffs. But it stinks they can't face the Lions every week so I wish them luck.
4. Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans
This result was not a surprise but the number of points the Seahawks scored surprised me. First off where has Rashaad Penny been as in this game he had two rushing touchdowns and 137 rushing yards. He finally looked like a good player but it might be too little too late due to his inconsistencies and durability concerns. The defense even looked functional for the first time this season. Then again the Texans quit on the coach and on the team. Davis Millis is not the problem as he had 331 passing yards and threw for a touchdown in this game. But who really won this game I believe the Texans did as they will get a higher draft pick as a result of them losing this game.
5. Tennessee Titans vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Not a surprise as the Titans deleted the Jacksonville Jaguars in this game. Ironically also deleted the Jaguars chances of making the playoffs as this loss officially mathematically eliminated him. The Titans won this game 20-0 and if the Titans were completely healthy I think the score would have been a lot higher than it was. I got to say Trevor Lawrence looked awful in this game and his rookie season has been a big disappointment this season. The Jaguars look so unmotivated this season and with the recent news with Urban Meyer, I would be shocked if he is the coach for next season.
Trap Survivor Pick: New Orleans Saints at New York Jets
I was wrong about this game as I thought the injuries were going to be too much for the Saints offense to overcome. But then the latest injury report came out and they were a lot healthier than I thought they were. Getting Alvin Kamara back is a huge boost for this team. The Saints did not do much throwing the ball as Taysom is inconsistent but the running game killed the Jets in this game. The Saints proved that they are not quitting to try and make the playoffs and 3 of their last 4 opponents are division rivals. They have a chance to make the playoffs but have to win all of their last games. In the case of the Jets, they get another season of no playoffs as with this loss they are now eliminated.
