fat guy touchdown!
Atlanta Falcons right tackle Ty Sambrailo not only had a 'fat guy touchdown' but he also broke a record. This was the longest touchdown reception from a player weighing over 300 pounds, at 35 yards.
This was also the seventh 'fat guy touchdown' from a player over three hundo this season -- also an NFL record. Everyone loves a fat guy touchdown.
Breshad Perriman highlight
^^ words I never thought I'd type. Tampa Bay Bucs QB Jameis Winston heaved this one to wide receiver Breshad Perriman and he somehow pulled this in for a 24-yard touchdown.
It is so surreal to me that Perriman learned how to catch. Good for him -- what a glow up.
christian mccaffrey makes history
The Carolina Panthers running back joined Marshall Faulk and Roger Craig as the only players with over a thousand rushing yards in a single season. It happened on this 17-yard run.
And he made it look easy.
things you hate to see:
The Miami Dolphins upset the New England Patriots in a shocker, knocking them out of the No.2 seed, and kissing their bye week good bye. The Pats haven't had to play Wildcard Weekend since 2009. This game is gonna be played to sad violin music with all the "no one believed in us" lines on their America's Game special, I can see it now.
New England gifted the Kansas City Chiefs their first-round bye as a nice post-holiday present.
jameis tops his year off the only way he can
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has had an ...... interesting season (I don't really know how else to put it to be honest), throwing 30 TDs and 30 INTs. I mean, I guess that's good as he's the only quarterback in history to do so? It's a fun story, if nothing else.
But the icing on the cake was this game-ending pick-six, that just sums up the season.
browns can kitchens.
It had to happen. The Cleveland Browns fired head coach Freddie Kitchens before they were even off the damn bus.
This had to happen. While I'm not usually a fan of one-and-done situations like this -- I think head coaches are often the scapegoat for larger underlying issues and usually deserve more than one year to win in the NFL -- Kitchens did more wrong than he did right. He had so much talent and couldn't really do anything with it. Kitchens wasn't very motivating, and wasn't the glue that held the team together, which is why it fell apart. And the Browns start at square one -- again.
The Bengals can't even celebrate correctly.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was celebrating his team's (one of few) win on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, when he accidentally swung his helmet and took out the fucking ref.
Mixon apologized later, calling the hit "unintentional." I believe him, but that was so very Bengals.
49ers clinch the nfc's no. 1 seed
The 2019 NFL season went out in great fashion with four teams' playoff seeding on the line.... it literally came down to just inches. Seattle Seahawks' tight end Jacob Hollister was tackled about two inches short of the goal line with nine seconds left, handing the division title and the NFC's No. 1 seed to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Seahawks are good, and Russell Wilson played hard until the end, as he tends to do, but the Niners were completely dominant this season and deserve the one seed.
I still can't get over that that's how the season ended. Just perfect.
