Week 17 of the NFL season ought to be fairly Antworten

predictable. There are nine games matching up teams still playing for playoff position against teams that are already eliminated. Surely Custom Mark Andrews Jersey , those nine teams with something to play for will easily beat the nine opponents with nothing to play for, right?Wrong. If history is any guide, we’ll see plenty of unpredictable results tomorrow.Last year, the NFL schedule provided the same situation heading into Week 17: Nine games matched up teams with something to play for against teams with nothing to play for. And in three of those games, the teams with nothing to play for won.The one everyone remembers was the Bengals’ dramatic last-minute victory over the Ravens. That turned out to be the last game of the 2017 regular season, and it resulted in a spectacular touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd that knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs and put the Bills in. The result, in addition to putting the Bills in the postseason, was Bills fans donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to Dalton’s and Boyd’s charities.But that wasn’t the only game in which a team with nothing to play for beat a team still fighting for the playoffs. The Saints, who would have clinched the NFC South with a win, lost to the Buccaneers, who were already eliminated. (The Saints ended up winning the NFC South anyway, but they needed help.) The Seahawks Mark Andrews Jersey Discount , who needed to win to get to the playoffs, lost to the Cardinals, who had already been eliminated.So while all the teams that have something to play for tomorrow (the Patriots, Texans, Chiefs, Chargers, Rams, Seahawks, Steelers, Eagles and Ravens) are favored to win against opponents with nothing to play for, expect to see some upsets. The NFL season never goes according to plan. Running back Aaron Jones' breakout game led to a breakthrough performance in the red zone for the Green Bay Packers.In Sunday's 31-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins, Jones rushed for a career-high 145 yards and two touchdowns. With Jones taking some of the pressure off quarterback Aaron Rodgers Mark Andrews Jersey Super Bowl , the Packers scored four touchdowns in four possessions inside the Dolphins 20-yard line.It was Green Bay's first perfect day with more than one red-zone possession since Week 4 of the 2017 season."You saw it the other night," Rodgers said on Tuesday. "Running the football in the red zone has not been a high priority for us, but the abilities that he brings slashing inside can give us some opportunities to run some more of those plays in the red zone."Their next test comes on Thursday night on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.Situational football 鈥?red zone and third down 鈥?has been troublesome for Green Bay's offense all season. Before the Miami game, the Packers ranked sixth in total offense (406.6 yards per game), but were only 14th in scoring (24.0 points per game) because of inconsistencies on third down (17th, 39.4 percent conversion rate) and the red zone (19th, 53.9 percent touchdowns).Against the Dolphins, they gained 377 yards but scored 31 points, thanks in large part to their success in the red zone.The threat of the running game gives the Packers (4-4-1) another option as they advance toward the goal line.While Jones scored on runs of 2 and 10 yards, Rodgers threw touchdown passes of 7 and 25 yards to receiver Davante Adams to punctuate the other two red zone possessions. Adams is tied for second in the NFL with nine touchdown receptions. Of those, a league-high eight have come in the red zone. Since the start of the 2016 season, Adams has a league-high 22 red zone touchdown receptions.The closer to the goal line Mark Andrews Jersey For Sale , the less space there is to operate and the more difficult it becomes to throw. Adams' edge comes from being one of the NFL's premier route runners."Because the window is so tight, and he can create enough separation to where he makes that window bigger," Rodgers said.With the emergence of Jones, the Packers have another weapon to use in their push for a playoff spot in the crowded NFC. Jones missed the first two games of the season with a suspension, then was part of a three-man committee in the backfield before taking over as the starter.In the three weeks since the bye, Jones has carried 41 times, Jamaal Williams has carried 14 times and Ty Montgomery was traded to the Ravens."The more carries you get, I feel like the better you're going to get and the more of a game flow you get in," Jones said.Entering Thursday, Jones and Williams both have 73 carries. Jones, however, has rushed for 494 yards (compared to 270 for Williams) on a league-best 6.8-yard average. Jones had a 67-yard run in the first quarter against Miami Mark Andrews Jersey On Sale , the team's longest since receiver Randall Cobb had a 67-yard run in 2013.With Jones' emergence to join Rodgers and Adams, the Packers hope they have the firepower for back-to-back road tests against Seattle and Minnesota."It puts the defense in a bind," Adams said. "It puts them to where they've got to load up that box and it allows us to have more opportunities outside. If they keep moving the ball like that and slashing and making big plays, it's pretty tough to figure out what to defend."NOTES: The Packers held what coach Mike McCarthy described as a "very limited" practice on Tuesday before departing for Seattle in the evening. WR Randall Cobb (hamstring), CB Kevin King (hamstring), S Kentrell Brice (ankle), OLB Nick Perry (knee) were not traveling with the team, though the Packers said their game status would be updated on the final injury report on Wednesday.
