Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 NFL Season Review
The Pittsburgh Steelers fell victim to the juggernaut of the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, ending their season one game short of the Super Bowl. Mike Tomlin’s men overcame a mid-season injury to Ben Roethlisberger to keep themselves on track in the playoff race, with the quarterback able to return after a short absence. The 35-year-old led a number of clutch drives late in the term to secure the AFC North title, including a thrilling contest to see off the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field. Their playoff pedigree was on full display in a convincing win over the Miami Dolphins and a battling road win against the Kansas City Chiefs before travelling to Foxborough. However,...
Green Bay Packers 2016 NFL Season Review
The Green Bay Packers fell just short of reaching the Super Bowl as not even the great arm of Aaron Rodgers could propel the team beyond the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game. The 33-year-old and head coach Mike McCarthy came under criticism at the start of the season for the club’s underwhelming performances. Green Bay were well off the pace for a place in the playoffs at the midway point, but Rodgers managed to take his game to another level to fire his team past the Detroit Lions in the NFC North to claim the number four seed in the post-season. He made a number of astounding throws to guide the Packers past the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, but the trip...
Dallas Cowboys 2016 NFL Season Review
The Dallas Cowboys recorded one of their finest regular season campaigns since the turn of the millennium, winning 13 matches to clinch the number one seed in the NFC. Expectations for the 2016 season were dampened when Tony Romo suffered a back injury before the start of the campaign, ruling him out for up to 10 weeks. Rookie Dak Prescott was thrust into the starting role alongside fellow first-year player Ezekiel Elliott, with the burden of leading one of the NFL’s most illustrious franchises back to the playoffs. The duo were nothing short of outstanding during the regular season, with Elliott rushing for a Cowboys rookie record 1,631 yards, earning a first-team All-Pro berth. Prescott was...
Kansas City Chiefs 2016 NFL Season Review
The Kansas City Chiefs’ season ended in disappointment as they fell at the first hurdle in the playoffs, suffering a defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs secured a first-round bye in the post-season due to their excellent form, winning 12 of their 16 matches – achieving their best record since the 2003 campaign. However, their term ended in familiar circumstances, with the club failing to beat quality opposition in January, failing to overcome the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium. Head coach Andy Reid has been maligned in the past for his teams’ failure to win on a consistent basis in the playoffs, having experienced similar issues during his tenure with the Philadelphia...
Seattle Seahawks 2016 NFL Season Review
The Seattle Seahawks continued their level of consistency since the arrival of head coach Pete Carroll, reaching the playoffs for the sixth season on the bounce. The club reclaimed the NFC West crown after losing their title to the Arizona Cardinals in the 2015 campaign, but an indifferent run of form towards the end of the season saw them miss out on clinching a first-round bye in the post-season. Seattle brushed aside the Detroit Lions with ease at home, dominating Jim Caldwell’s side with a 26-6 victory in the wildcard round. However, their position as the three seed sent the club to Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and company, which culminated in defeat at the Georgia Dome, ending their push...
Houston Texans 2016 NFL Season Review
The Houston Texans sabotaged their 2016 season by signing free-agent quarterback Brock Osweiler on a huge contract last season. The 26-year-old spectacularly failed to live up to expectations, struggling immensely in the signal-caller position. Due to the poor standard of his performances, Osweiler was pulled from the line-up in favour of Tom Savage late in the campaign, much to the delight of the Texans supporters. The club made the playoffs despite the quarterback’s ineptitude along with an injury to key defensive player JJ Watt, highlighting the impressive performances of the team along with excellent coaching from Bill O’Brien and his staff. Houston were handed a gift in the wildcard...
