College Football Week 13 in Review

The final week of the college football regular season did not disappoint, and it once again delivered a shake-up at the top. Ohio State, who had looked unbeatable for the past couple of months were blown out by Michigan, seeing their playoff hopes go up in smoke at the same time. The Wolverines are now in with a real shot at the playoffs, but they also need to win the Big ten Conference Championship Game this coming weekend to make that dream come true.

The other big games this weekend will help the Playoff Committee decide who is in and out, with a few games sure to play a part in that decision. An Alabama loss to Georgia in the SEC title game will likely end their season, while Oklahoma State can up their chances by winning the Big 12. One of the more interesting games, though, is the AAC title game, with Cincinnati looking to remain unbeaten this season. Can a non-Power 5 team finally make the playoffs? Here is the AP Poll after week 13:

  1. Georgia Bulldogs
  2. Michigan Wolverines
  3. Cincinnati Bearcats
  4. Alabama Crimson Tide
  5. Oklahoma State Cowboys
  6. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Looking Ahead to NFL Week 13

The way things have gone this season, it is becoming difficult to trust any team when they go on a winning run. The reality is that this has been a rollercoaster year for a lot of teams, but now is the time to get hot as we get ready for the stretch run in the regular season. The Patriots have suddenly become the team to beat, reeling off 6 straight wins, with rookie sensation Mac Jones looking like a seasoned pro under center.

The Detroit Lions season of futility continued with yet another tight loss, this time to the Chicago Bears, who won on a last second field goal. The Lions are still potentially going to go winless this season, which is not really a surprise to anyone at this point.

There were some fantastic performances in Week 10 of the NFL season, so let’s take a look at the top offensive performers of the week.

Top 3 Passers in Week 12

  1. Dak Prescott (Cowboys) – 32 of 47 for 375 yards and 2 TD
  2. Derek Carr (Raiders) – 24 of 39 for 373 yards and 1 TD
  3. Andy Dalton (Bears) – 24 of 39 for 317 yards and 1 TD & 1 INT

Top 3 Receivers in Week 12

  1. Jaylen Waddle (Dolphins) – 9 receptions for 137 yards and 1 TD
  2. Hunter Renfrow (Raiders) – 8 receptions for 134 yards
  3. Rob Gronkowski (Buccaneers) – 7 receptions for 123 yards

Games to Watch in Week 13 of the NFL Season

The playoff races are heating up in both conferences, so it’s always fun to focus on the games that will have an impact on those standings. The LA Chargers and the Cincinnati Bengals are both in the hunt in the AFC, so their meeting is a huge one. The Pittsburgh Steelers are on the slide, but can they turn things around this weekend in a big divisional matchup with the Baltimore Ravens?

We have the Miami Dolphins looking for a 5th straight win, with the New York Giants coming to town, while the Kansas City Chiefs will look to keep moving on up with a win on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead.

The Thursday night game sees the Dallas Cowboys head to the Big Easy for a game against the New Orleans Saints. The game of the week, though, is probably the Monday night game, with New England and Buffalo set to square off.
