The 2019 Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs have been saying they want to “Run it Back” to another Super Bowl all year long. The Chiefs have done what they set out to do, except they walked it back more than ran. The Chiefs strolled their way to the Super Bowl this year, losing only one of their eighteen games so far. Patrick Mahomes has had another MVP caliber season and is looking to win his second Super Bowl in only the third year of his career.
The Bills had a big win in a 17-3 slugfest over the Baltimore Ravens. Buffalo’s defense came up big, limiting Baltimore’s offense to only 3 points and recording four sacks and one interception that they returned for a touchdown. The offense on the other hand, was incredibly lackluster, recording only 220 total yards and 10 points. Josh Allen and the Bills offense has shown that they can be one of the most explosive offenses in the regular season but have yet to show up in the playoffs.
After spending 14 years with the Boston Bruins, 43-year old Zdeno Chara has signed a one-year, $795,000 with the Washington Capitals.

There is no debate that this year the NFC East is the worst division in the NFL. With a combined record of 11-28-1 in non-divisional games, the NFC East has been the laughing stock of the entire league. These teams have clinched the fact that the winner of the division and the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs will finish with a losing record, but the Giants have the chance to be the first team in NFL history to go 6-10 and make the playoffs. It seems that none of these teams are all that deserving of a playoff spot, but nevertheless, one team will earn the fourth seed on Week 17.
