Week 18 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 18 of the NFL season.
Week 18 Top 5 Survivor Options
Week 18 Record (3-2)
Overall Record (69-21)
1. Buffalo Bills vs New York Jets
No Surprise how this matchup went. Everybody knew that the Buffalo Bills were going to win this matchup whatever it takes so they could secure them winning the AFC East. Even though it got close in the second half this game was over in the 4th. The Jets gave up and the Bills just were scoring. Great performance by the Bills. If you picked the Bills in survivor this week and are still alive in survivor well Congratulations on Winning your pool.
2. Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
I got to tell you even though the Lions were awful this season you have to admit the Lions may have finally found a good coach in Dan Campbell. Games like this show you why as just looking at the Lions last year to this year the entire team was more energetic. The culture is a lot better now than it ever was when Matt Patricia was the head coach. The Packers gave up in the second half benching their starters. Jordan Love played and my goodness he was not good in this game. The Packers are all in in the NFL’s version of The Last Dance.
3. Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans
Not a surprise the Titans were going to do whatever it takes to ensure that they got the first seed in the playoffs. Even though it has been a rough season for the Houston Texans this team may have something with Davis Mills at QB to replace Deshaun Watson as he was a lot better than he was at the beginning of the season. If you picked the Titans in survivor this week and are still alive in survivor well Congratulations on Winning your pool.
4. Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos
This was a lot closer than what I thought it was going to be as the Denver Broncos performed well in this game. It just wasn't enough to finish strong. Imagine if the Denver Broncos had consistency at the quarterback position. Or a competent head coach and offensive coordinator. No surprise that the Broncos decided to fire both Vic Fangio and Pat Shurmur on Black Monday. If you picked the Chiefs in survivor this week and are still alive in survivor well Congratulations on Winning your pool.
5. Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
What a disgraceful performance by the Indianapolis Colts in this game. I am not going to go long here as I talked about it in my Colts eliminated article. But a great performance by the Jaguars and Trevor Lawrence looked the best he had in this season.
Trap Survivor Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers
Wow, I was completely wrong about this game. Especially as I thought the Buccaneers were going to be completely distracted due to the whole Antonio Brown fiasco. I also thought that they were bs-ing us and were going to rest players for the upcoming playoffs and they decided not to. But this says more about the Carolina Panthers than it does about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It also makes me question if Matt Rhule will be the head coach of the Panthers next season. But overall great performance by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
