Green Bay Packers at Baltimore Ravens 31:30
The Green Bay Packers decide for themselves the first game in the 15th round. Aaron Rodgers & Co survives a last-minute return from Ravens playmaker Tyler Huntley in a true-to-life football movie.
In the first half, the two teams did not give each other anything, with a 14:14 tie entered the first half.
In the next 20 minutes, the Packers managed to run a seemingly safe 31:17 with the help of two touchdowns and a field goal, before the big hour to land Tyler Huntley. Huntley, who replaced the injured Lamar Jackson, skillfully led the attack across the field and took two much-needed touchdowns.
45 seconds before the end, Ravens head coach John Harbo decided to convert the seemingly decisive two-pointer instead of shooting the redeeming extra point. Corner cornerback Eric Stokes blocked Huntley’s pass and claimed his 11th win of the season, with Green Bay being the first team to secure a place in the playoffs.
Huntley finished the game with 215 yards and ran an additional 76 yards. The 23-year-old was responsible for all of the Ravens’ offensive touchdowns (two pass, two rushing touchdowns).
Packers star Aaron Rodgers scored 268 yards and three touchdowns, as veteran Brett Favre tied with him (442 total touchdowns).
With 11-3, the beams secure their first position in NFC. Baltimore slipped with its sixth defeat of the season (8-6), but from first place in North Asia.
Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers 13:31
The San Francisco 49ers confirmed their ambitions in the playoffs. Against the defeated Hawks, coach Kyle Shanahan’s attack was again at its best and scored a total of four touchdowns. Quarterback Jimmy Garappolo scored at 235 yards and Jeff Wilson also impressed with 110 yards.
Atlanta stayed close in the first half, but had to make way after the break and only managed one field goal. Playmaker Matt Ryan was responsible for the Falcons’ lone relegation, but he also lost to confusion.
The veteran finished the game with 213 yards and ran another 20 yards.
With a 6-8 record, it now looks like Atlanta is saying goodbye to the qualifying race. With only eight wins and six losses, San Francisco still has the best chance of participating in the post-season.
Cincinnati Bengals in the Denver Bronx 15:10
The Cincinnati Bengals finished first in the North Asia region with an impressive performance.
Only at the end of the third quarter could the Bengals attack make its first touchdown: receiver Tyler Boyd found his way into the opponent’s end zone after a 56-yard pass from playmaker Joe Burrow and thus secured his team the lead. Denver couldn’t score any more in the decisive quarter.
The match was overshadowed by a serious injury to the Broncos lane Teddy Bridgewater, who remained on the ground after a failed attempt. The 29-year-old was subsequently replaced by Drew Lock, who also scored Denver’s only goal.
Bridgewater was 98 yards out before he hit, and Lock was only 88 yards away. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow finished the game 157 yards.
After their eighth win of the season, Cincinnati leads North Asia (8-6). Broncos 7-7.
