Recap: The Seahawks fell victim to a trap game in Week 16. Against a 4-9-1 Cardinals team playing out the string, the Seahawks’ offense fell flat and scored just 13 points against the worst pass defense in the NFL en route to a stunning 27-13 loss.
Outlook: Despite their Week 16 loss, the Seahawks can still win the NFC West with a victory over the Niners in Week 17. Should the Seahawks lose, they’ll be looking at one of the two NFC Wild Card spots.
Recap: Down 17-13 going into the fourth quarter against the Bills, the Patriots were able to shut Buffalo out in the final frame and scored 11 unanswered to secure a victory and their 11th straight AFC East title.
Outlook: Now that the division is officially wrapped up, the Patriots have their sights set on securing one of the top two seeds in the conference. With a Ravens win in Week 16, the best the Patriots can do now is the No. 2 seed, which can be achieved with a Week 17 win over the Dolphins, or a Chiefs loss.
