WEEK #15 UPDATE
The surprise of Week #15 had to be the Tennessee Titans’, 5.5 point underdogs, 19-17 defeat of the Kansas City Chiefs in sub-freezing temperatures at Arrowhead, on a 53-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop as time expired. After failing on a two-point conversion attempt following a touchdown with only 3:14 left in regulation, the Titans trailed the Chiefs 17-16. But Tennessee held K.C. to a 3-and-out and got the ball back with just over a minute to go. The Titans proceeded to drive just into range for Succop’s game winner, keeping them in a tie with Houston for the lead in the AFC South.
Meanwhile, 800 miles to the southeast, the only game that mattered to our final two players took place in the climate controlled environment of the Georgia Dome, where the Falcons dismantled the once-proud 49ers 41-13, dropping San Francisco to 1-13 for the season. Atlanta’s victory, coupled with Tampa Bay’s defeat, gives the Falcons a 1-game lead in the NFC South, and of course extends our pool to the penultimate week of the regular season.
