Takeaways From Week 15 of the NFL Regular Season

Holy comebacks! Tis' the season for defying the odds and winning big! Here's a synopsis of what type of comebacks we witnessed in lieu of the holiday season.

  • The Good: Jacksonville was reeling against a solid Dallas Cowboys team. Even with Trevor Lawrence fumbling the ball late in the fourth quarter, the Jags found a way to make a defensive stand. As a result, a Rayshawn Jenkins pick-six won it for Jacksonville in overtime, thrusting the Jaguars near the top of the AFC South. Don't look now, but Duval County's finest is playing excellent football.

  • The Bad: You're up 33-0 at the half. You're feeling good about yourself and thinking about next week. There's no way you could possibly blow that lead, right? WRONG! Matt Ryan's under center (see? It's not entirely Kyle Shanahan's fault) and the Indianapolis Colts wound up blowing the game, 39-36. As a result, their opponent, the Minnesota Vikings, held onto the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Meanwhile, Indianapolis's season is done, with another quarterback controversy looming over a once-proud franchise that had no such problems before.

  • The Ugly: Joe Burrow is a bad dude. Normally, it's Tom Brady that puts together the ridiculous comebacks. However, the former No. 1 pick made a comeback of his own, erasing a 17-0 deficit. The result? Cincinnati blowing out Tampa Bay, 34-23. Brady had four turnovers in the second half, which is uncharacteristic of the three-time MVP. In fact, the second-half performance was the epitome of what the Bucs have gone through all season. Will Tampa Bay be one and done this year?
