That’s a wrap. The 2018 Regular Season is now over. The remaining 12 teams are dialed in and each team believes they have what it takes to bring home the Lombardi Trophy. The last fork in the road has been taken and the race down the final stretch to the SuperBowl begins next week!
Before we head down the home stretch, the NFL had to finalize the contestants for the playoffs. The Eagles came into the week knowing they needed a win to have any shot at making the field and they did what was needed, completely obliterating the Washington Redskins 24-0. Philadelphia secured the final NFC spot at the expense of the Minnesota Vikings who fell victim to the Chicago Bears at home 24-10. Better luck next year, Vikings.
Things were just as exciting in the AFC as the 6th and final spot came down to the late night game between the Colts and Titans. Houston locked up the division earlier in the day, forcing Indianapolis and Tennessee to compete for survival. The Colts played their hearts out the second half of the season and earned their chance at immortality.
Once again, the Elldee Sports Best Bets went 2-2. The Best Bets finished the year at just over 50%. I will continue to post the predictions but this will be my final NFL post of the season. Be on the lookout for articles on big news throughout the offseason. I will continue to tweak the formula as I try to make the ultimate prediction machine! Good luck and thank you again for reading, following, and commenting. Until next year.
