Podcast: the debrief of Week 18
Eric Weddle comes out of retirement
Surprise! Absent in 2020, and during the 2021 regular season, Eric Weddle (S) is back. On Wednesday, the safety agent announced that he was engaging the Rams for the playoffs.
The 37-year-old played his last season with the Rams in 2019. He had 108 tackles. Difficult to know what will be his level after such a long absence. Especially when arriving directly for the most important matches.
No pressure for Kyler Murray
The Cardinals are in the playoffs, and it will be a first for Kyler Murray (QB). What does Kliff Kingsbury expect from his player? Three times nothing.
“It’s his first chance in the playoffs, and I expect him to have probably the best game of his career. I know he will give his all, ”the coach told ESPN.

The Steelers appealed for TJ Watt
TJ Watt (LB, Steelers) finished the season with 22.5 sacks, tying Michael Strahan’s all-time best mark. But his team tried to get him the record. According to ProFootballTalk, the Steelers have appealed an action on which Watt was not credited with a sack.
After a bad snap, the pass rusher ended the action by tackling the Ravens quarterback last Sunday. Sack? No. The league felt it was a fumble from the center, so the action was in jeopardy and Watt simply ended it. The appeal was dismissed.
This would have tied the NFL’s single-season sack record for TJ Watt but they ruled it a fumble by the center

NFL scores best since 2015
The league reported that the regular season generated an average audience of 17.1 million viewers. That’s a 10% increase from 2020 and the highest average since 2015. Proof of this is that the NFL continues to bring people together in front of their screens.
Ten games generated audiences of 25 million or more, with the largest viewing audience during Thanksgiving, when 40.8 million people watched the Raiders beat the Cowboys. It was the largest viewing audience for a regular-season game since 1990. 5 of the 10 most-watched games of the 2021 season were Dallas games. In the USA, » America’s Team »Continues to make recipe.
And full stadiums!
There were an average of 67,254 supporters per game in NFL stadiums this season. This was 0.9% more than in 2019, according to the Sports Business Journal. We are therefore back above pre-COVID levels.
Kelly Stafford tired of not being home in Los Angeles
Against the 49ers on Sunday, the Rams must have felt like the away team at times in their game at SoFi Stadium. Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly, who has a podcast called « The Morning After, » explained this week that she believes Niners fans have bought their seats from Angelinos. She begged Rams supporters to prevent this from happening again as their team welcome the Cardinals to the playoffs on the night of Monday through Tuesday. She posted on Instagram a clip from her podcast and wrote, “My plea. Please don’t sell tickets to Arizona fans. «
“I have never seen so many fans of the opposing team in a game. We are coming from Detroit. There were a lot of good touring teams there, but it was crazy… Matthew must have made a silent count, not Jimmy Garoppolo. It was crazy. It made it very difficult for us, because I guess we weren’t expecting this. «
While his theory of how San Francisco fans got tickets seems unlikely, the stands at SoFi Stadium were mostly red. It would be surprising to see Cardinals fans travel as well as San Francisco fans, but it’s obvious the Rams always struggle to move crowds.
