Neil Reynolds of Sky Sports had the final say in Week 12 of the NFL, picking five major takeouts, player of the week and more; Watch Thursday Night Football – Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots – Live on Sky Sports NFL, 1:15am Friday
The NFL hosted a triple Thanksgiving event last week that officially brought us to the end of the 2022 season. From now until Super Bowl LVII in Arizona on February 12, it’s big football.
Burrow still played big, especially to Tee Higgins in the fourth quarter, but that win was largely on defense.
For them to shut down Derrick Henry the way they did, I didn’t expect to see it and it certainly made me sit up and take note.
Trevor Lawrence was very good in the previous two weeks against the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, but I think the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback took him to the next level again on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens – especially in that he was in the lead in that final game. -winning drive.
Lawrence was very calm and looked like the Jaguars had hoped for when they took him with the first overall pick in the 2021 draft.
He had a great record – 29-of-37 passes, 321 yards and three touchdowns – and that gave him confidence going forward, but the fact that his head coach Doug Pederson converted a two-point conversion to win him at the end doesn’t add an extra point. to link him, it speaks volumes about his faith in Lawrence.
He still has a long way to go in his NFL career, but I think this could be a turning point for the young QB Jaguar.
Let’s go back to Thanksgiving last week and talk about Josh Allen. He did what he did so often in Buffalo, which was put the team on their backs when it was really needed against the rather dangerous and brash Detroit Lions at the moment.
It wasn’t a textbook performance from either the Bills or Allen – he had a few sloppy moments, including another interception at the goal line – but when they needed him most, he stepped up.
