Open discussion on the first games of week 18
Week 18 of the NFL season continues with seven games early in the afternoon. Perhaps the best of an uninspiring slate presents the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting the Baltimore Ravens.
The 8-7-1 Pittsburgh Steelers and 8-8 Baltimore Ravens are used to dominating the AFC North and going to the playoffs almost every year, but not this year. Neither team will win the AFC North this year; that honor goes to the Cincinnati Bengals. The loser of this match will not participate in the playoffs. The winner probably won’t make the playoffs either, although there is a slight chance with a lot of help.
Elsewhere in the opening games, the Indianapolis Colts visit the Jacksonville Jaguars in a game the Colts must win to advance to the playoffs; Tennessee Titans look to grab AFC No.1 seed against Houston Texans; Washington football team faces New York Giants in meaningless game; Green Bay Packers visit Detroit Lions in meaningless game; Chicago Bears visit Minnesota Vikings in meaningless game; and the Cincinnati Bengals face the Cleveland Browns.
Enjoy the games everyone. Use this thread to comment on early afternoon games that appeal to you.
