Divisions still undecided, places in the playoffs to be won, We Sport presents week 18 of the NFL, outcome of the regular season 2022.
The game of the week
Baltimore Ravens [10-6] @Cincinnati Bengals [11-4] : Sunday, 7:00 p.m.
L’AFC North could it be played heads or tails? With one game less following the cancellation of Bills-Bengals last week, Cincinnati will have to win to win its division. In case of defeat, Baltimore would win the said division, but would not have the advantage of the field in the event of a confrontation in the playoffs with the Bengals: it would be a coin toss.
Side field, Cincinnati will leave favorite of this meeting after winning their last seven games. For its part, Baltimore is skating and will still be deprived of Lamar Jackson, whose return is scheduled for the first game of the playoffs. Undecided division and duel between an excellent attack and a very solid defense, despite the possible coin toss between the two franchises in the playoffs, this match promises a lot.
Player to watch: Geno Smith
Los Angeles Rams [5-11] @Seattle Seahawks [8-8] : Sunday, 10:25 p.m.
Very probable Comeback player of the year, Geno Smith is having the best season of his career. Thanks to his performance, the Seahawks, promised to the bottom of the rankings after the transfer of Russell Wilson, still have the possibility of going to the playoffs. If we will have to hope for a defeat of the Packers during the Sunday Night Football in addition to a victory, Seattle has real reason to believe in a qualification, which will therefore go through a victory against the Rams. Ending the season by beating the defending champion and qualifying for the playoffs, what could be better for the Seahawks and their new star quarterback?
Team to watch: Jacksonville Jaguars
Tennessee Titans [7-9] @Jacksonville Jaguars [8-8] : Saturday to Sunday, 2h15
At the dawn of this eighteenth and final week of the regular season, Jacksonville has a ticket to the playoffs. Yet such a sentence seemed unpronounceable before their bye week, in mid-November. Except that since then, the Jaguars have won five of the six games they have played and have taken first place in theAFC South to the Titans. The Florida franchise can afford a ticket to the postseason, but we will have to beat these same Titans during this last week. If they win, Trevor Lawrence’s partners would return to the playoffs for the first time since 2017. In the event of defeat, Tennessee would win the division and deprive the 2021 Draft No. 1 of a first career playoff campaign. .
The question of the week : the eagles can-they almost all lose ?
New York Giants [9-6-1] @Philadelphia Eagles [13-3] : Sunday, 10:25 p.m.
By mid-December, the Eagles were firmly at the top of the NFC with thirteen wins and just one loss. Since then, Philadelphia has lost twice, and could lose a first place in the conference which seemed to them acquired. To secure this spot, and at the same time the advantage of the field and a week of rest, the Pennsylvania franchise must win against the Giants. Already qualified in the playoffs, New York has almost nothing left to play, but will not offer victory easily to a division rival. The ball is in the Eagles’ court, who are under pressure from the Cowboys and 49ers, contenders for said NFC No. 1 spot.
