Week 16 Early Games

Dec. 21, 2008, 4:49 PM

Here are a few observations from the early games:

•The Titans looked very strong in their win over the Steelers, 31-14. I was more than happy to see the Steelers finally drop a meaningful game. I was also thinking about this game in terms of how it could affect the Ravens. If the Ravens get in to the playoffs (all they need is a win over Jacksonville next week), they will be the 6th and lowest seed. If they go on and win their first game, the team who has the number one seed has the honors of hosting the lowest seed. After today’s game that team would be the Tennessee Titans.

•It was a wild game in frigid Kansas City as the Dolphins improved to 10-5 with a 38-31 victory over the Chiefs. Once again, I was thinking about the Ravens and how this game affects them. If the Dolphins win next week, they win the AFC East. The team the Ravens will have to face on the road on wild-card weekend is whoever wins the East. Out of New England, New York, and Miami…I would prefer the team going down to South Beach where they already won earlier this year. New England during January is brutal, and the Meadowlands in New Jersey will not be fun either. It looks more and more like we will see a Ravens @ Dolphins matchup on the weekend of January 3-4.

•In Cleveland, the Bengals won their second game in a row as they blanked the Browns 14-0. The Browns have not scored an offensive touchdown in five straight games. Ken Dorsey threw three interceptions. This organization is in shambles. Expect Romeo Crennel to be fired before the new year.

•New England improved their record to 10-0 when snow is falling at kickoff. They kept their slim playoff hopes alive, embarrassing the Cardinals 47-7.

•University of Maryland alum Shaun hill led the 49ers to a touchdown with less than 2:00 in regulation to beat the Rams 17-16.
