Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers both Win in Week - 17 as they are Propelling their teams towards the NFL Postseason
As of Monday, January 2nd, 2023 the National Football League enters the final week - 18 of the regular season and the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to stay hot as they are both possibly reaching the NFL playoffs even with bad teams surrounding their quarterbacks.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Last week the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played the Carolina Panthers, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Carolina Panthers with a final score of 30 to 24. Tom Brady threw for a total of 432 - yards, 3 - touchdowns, and 0 - interceptions. This week on Sunday, January 8th, 2023 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Atlanta Falcons, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already clinched their division and will be absolutely making it into the NFL postseason.
Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 41 to 17 last Sunday, January 1st, 2023. Thanks to the Cleveland Browns losing to the Washington Commanders as well as the Green Bay Packers winning their games last weekend, the Green Bay Packers now have a much more simplified road to the NFL playoffs this year.
Now, if the Green Bay Packers win their last game of the regular season, they will be going to the playoffs as the number 7 - seed. The Green Bay Packers will be eliminated from the National Football League playoff contention if they fail to beat the Detroit Lions this upcoming Sunday.
After last week’s games, the Washington Commanders fell to 7 - 8 - 1, and they have been eliminated from the 2023 NFL playoffs, while the Detroit Lions are now sitting at 8 and 8 while the Seattle Seahawks are also 8 and 8. Both the Detroit Lions and the Seattle Seahawks are fighting with the Green Bay Packers for that last Wild Card spot in the NFC.
