NFL Week 17 Recap
Week 17 was a wild one for bettors. A lot of favorites won but were unable to cover from a betting perspective. When it comes to storylines, it was also the week where we saw Ben Roethlisberger play his final game at Heinz Field.
Week 18, the final slate of the regular season, is going to be epic. The playoff picture is far from set in the AFC. Yet, we need to recap Week 17 to begin our preparation. Here are the important things to know from Week 17.
Derek Carr Leads the Raiders to Victory
The Indianapolis Colts had been one of the best teams in the second half of the season. Yet, their hot streak came to an abrupt close against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The reason the Raiders had success was that they shut down Jonathan Taylor. Taylor had 20 carries for 108 yards and a TD. This is a slow day for the running back.
Derek Carr delivered on the game’s final drive to pull off the win at +245 on the money line.
Colts have a great team but they just keep stumbling on these types of games. Raiders have not been a strong team in 2021 but they keep winning games like this and it makes you think where the hell were for the easy games they lost this year. Colts have one more week to figure it out before the playoffs.
