Tampa Bay 22, Atlanta 17

Doug Martin ran for 142 yards and a touchdown to lead the visiting Bucs to the win. The Falcons already had home field advantage locked up throughout the NFC playoffs, and finish the season 13-3. Tampa Bay finishes at a disappointing 7-9.


Buffalo 28, New York Jets 9

An ugly season came to a fitting end for the New York Jets. Mark Sanchez completed just 17 of 35 passes and also chipped in an interception, as Tim Tebow waited in unfulfilled anticipation on the bench. Has Rex Ryan coached his last game in New York? Who knows, but I’m sure ESPN will keep us posted day and night.


Tennessee 38, Jacksonville 20

The Titans became the first team in NFL history to have two players each score twice on returns. Darius Reynaud scored on punt returns of 69 and 81 yards while Zach Brown took two interceptions back to the house. Both teams now eagerly await April’s draft.


Chicago 26, Detroit 24

Jay Cutler threw for 257 yards and a score as the Bears kept their playoff hopes alive with the win at Detroit. Chicago will squeak into the 6th seed in the NFC with a Minnesota loss to Green Bay this afternoon.
