With the division round under way, the NFC and the AFC match-ups were definitely something to watch. With significant injuries to most teams, the predictive winner of each match-up seemed difficult to justify. The New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, and the Denver Broncos barely squeaked by their opponents by securing a win to the next round. Unfortunately, for the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, they will have to showcase their potential next season.
Nevertheless, this week’s games supplied the fans with phenomenal catches and extraordinary drives that swayed the lead in a game in the opposite direction and by briefly destroying fans hopeful dreams of having their team head to the Superbowl. Out of the match-ups this weekend, my personal favorite belonged to the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals. I say this because it truly was an intense game with true unpredictability at its best.
With that being said, I agree with this week’s pick that was brought to my attention by Hunter O. Scoring plays are crucial to winning games and are devastating when they simply do not count, especially when it has the potential to change the final outcome of the game. This week’s play of the week belongs to a 51-yard pass from Aaron Rodger to wide receiver, Randall Cobb. This 51-yard pass did not result in a simple two handed catch, instead it was a remarkable one-handed grab. The only unfortunate thing about this catch, was that IT DIDNT COUNT due to penalties on both sides. Sadly, to add further insult to this play, Randall Cobb was injured and remained out for the rest of the game.
If you missed it, below is a clip of this extraordinary catch:

Congrats to Hunter O. for picking this week’s play of the week. Hunter chose not to have his social media shared at this time.
