Last Updated on December 26, 2023 6:03 pm by Erwin Noguera

The week 16 of the NFL regular season has just wrapped up, and things got quite interesting, as now, both the Ravens and Dolphins have clinched a spot on the AFC side, while the Eagles, Cowboys, and 49ers are now joined by the Detroit Lions on the NFC side.

With only 2 weeks left to go and 8 spots to go, we have to go through all the matches that took place to see the momentum being carried by all the teams fighting for the remaining spots.

The fact that things are about to finish does not mean that anything is slowing down, as a lot of the remaining teams are firing on all cylinders for that same reason!

The Lions now wear the NFC North crown, earning their first playoff berth since 2016 and at least one home playoff game at Ford Field.

The defense came up with a big play with the Ifeatu Melifonwu on the final possession to beat the Vikings 30-24 and clinch the NFC North for the first time since 1993. Jahmyr Gibbs led the way with 80 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Jared Goff completed 30 of 40 passes for 257 yards and one touchdown to Amon-Ra St. Brown. The defense gave up 390 yards but came up with four interceptions to help push the Lions past the finish line.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were embarrassed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 30-12 at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday.

It was the Jags’ fourth-straight loss, one that drops them to 8-7 on the season, though they mantain first place in the AFC South after the Colts and Texans also lost.

Mayfield threw for 283 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday, pacing a 30-12 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars that propelled the Bucs (8-7) into position to clinch a third consecutive NFC South title next week.

Tampa Bay has won four straight games on the heels of a stretch that saw the team lose six of seven.

Mayfield has been one of the keys to the turnaround, minimizing mistakes while taking advantage of opponents’ miscues. On Sunday, he converted three turnovers by Trevor Lawrence into touchdowns that helped the Bucs to a 30-0 lead.

NFL Week 16 Roundup: Dolphins 22 – 20 Cowboys

Moneyline odds: 

Dolphins 1.83

Cowboys 2

Where Can I Watch? 


The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins entered Sunday as the league’s top two scoring offenses with identical 10-4 records. However, in a game in which defense dominated most of the afternoon, both offenses did what they had to do to give their team a lead late. The Dolphins had the ball last, which proved to be the difference, allowing them to kick the game-winning 29-yard field goal with no time remaining.

Miami clinched a playoff spot, reaching the postseason in consecutive seasons for the first time since making it five seasons in a row from 1997-2001. Unless the Philadelphia Eagles continue to stumble down the stretch, winning the NFC East is likely out of the realm of possibility for Dallas. 

In a game that was decided on a last-second field goal, the Cowboys will likely be shaking their heads at how their opening drive of the game concluded since an extra seven points could have been the difference.

NFL Week 16 Roundup: Chiefs 14 – 20 Raiders


Monday, December 25 at 1:00 pm ET in the Arrowhead Stadium

Moneyline odds: 

Chiefs 1.21

Raiders 4.42

Where Can I Watch? 


On Christmas Day, the Kansas City Chiefs came into their Week 16 division matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in a position to claim their seventh straight victory over their longtime rivals, a ninth-straight postseason berth, and an eighth consecutive division title. But the Raiders spoiled all of that with a 20-14 victory over the Chiefs on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Antonio Pierce’s defense dealt Patrick Mahomes his first career division loss in November or December, holding the Chiefs to just 4.2 yards per play and forcing two turnovers along the way — each of which turned into a touchdown. The Raiders held on for the victory despite rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell not completing a single pass in the final three-quarters of the game.

They did so thanks to a defense that yielded only two touchdowns on 11 Kansas City drives and came up with a pair of massive fourth-down stops in the second half along the way. The win keeps the Raiders afloat in both the AFC playoff race and the AFC West race, setting up an enormous stretch run for each of these teams.
