The 12th week of the 2022 NFL season has finished, and the more we advance, the higher the tension for each team as they try to get their spots in the playoffs.
There is no time to lose and they will need to win as many matches as possible in the last 6 weeks they still have. The main surprise this week is that the Jacksonville Jaguars managed to get the upper hand over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night by just a tiny margin. Every week in the NFL packs a few surprises and exciting outcomes, and we have to admit that this one takes the top spot on Week 12. Also, we have to point out that Tom Brady’s amazing streak came to an end. Before Sunday, Brady had been 218-0 when his team held a lead of seven points or more in the final two minutes of regulation.
However, that 218-game winning streak ended when the Browns fought back from a 17-10 deficit to beat the Buccaneers 17-23 in overtime.
NFL Week 12 – Results – Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cleveland Browns
Sunday, November 27 at 01:00 pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers -187
Cleveland Browns +157
The rain came and went throughout the afternoon in Cleveland as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns did battle at FirstEnergy Stadium amid intermittent showers.
The last one was a bitter rain for the Buccaneers, as they lost a 17-10 lead in the game’s final minute on a stunning fourth-down catch by TE David Njoku, then played nearly an entire fifth period before Nick Chubb’s game-winning touchdown run in a 23-17 final
After the Browns took a 10-7 lead in the first quarter, the Buccaneers’ defense held Cleveland without points on eight straight possession.
Tampa Bay had a chance to put the game away in regulation after forcing a punt with two-and-half minutes left but the Browns got a critical three-and-out, with a Myles Garrett sack forcing the Bucs to punt from their own 10.
Chubb’s 28-yard run got the Browns into scoring range before Njoku’s incredible grab over ILB Devin White.
Playing an extra period also exposed all the players to more opportunities for injuries, and the Bucs appear to have sustained a critical one.
After their second-to-last offensive play of overtime, All-Pro right tackle Tristan Wirfs had to be carted off due to a serious left leg injury.
Result: Cleveland Browns (23) – (17) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
NFL Week 12 – Results – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Baltimore Ravens
Sunday, November 27 at 01:00 pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars +144
Baltimore Ravens -177
The Ravens are going to be kicking themselves all week for this loss and that’s because they let this one slip away.
Offensively, the Ravens did a good job of moving the ball, but the problem is that Baltimore lost two fumbles and the Jaguars were able to convert those turnovers into 10 points.
The Jags’ defense played a key role in this win by coming up with those two huge turnovers and holding the Ravens to just two touchdowns on five trips to the red zone.
The Ravens’ defense then had a fourth-quarter meltdown as the Jags’ were able to score on all three of their possessions in the quarter, including a 75-yard drive that culminated with the game-winning TD being scored with just 14 seconds left to play.
Even then, Baltimore still had a chance to win, but Justin Tucker’s 67-yard field goal came up short on the final play.
The Ravens were playing with fire in this game and they got burnt in a loss that drops them into a tie with the Bengals for first place in the AFC North.
Result: Jacksonville Jaguars (28) – (27) Baltimore Ravens
NFL Week 12 – Results – Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers
Sunday, November 27 at 08:20 pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles -280
Green Bay Packers -232
This game had the makings of an Eagles blowout victory early on after Philly jumped out to a 13-0 lead.
But the combination of the team’s mistakes and a turnover on downs allowed the Packers to take the lead.
The Eagles then pulled ahead but the Packers matched their score after A.J. Brown’s second fumble in two weeks.
Jalen Hurts’ first touchdown pass of the night, a back-shoulder dime to Quez Watkins, put the Birds ahead entering halftime.
Philly was in a position to pull away and close out the game by going up 14 points with a touchdown on their first drive of the second half.
However, the Packers were nearly in a position to cut it back down to seven before having to settle for a short-field goal.
It was at that point that Aaron Rodgers left the game and did not return.
He was replaced by Jordan Love, who was able to cut it back down to a seven-point game before the Birds extended their lead with a 54-yard field goal.
Another long kickoff return allowed by the Eagles’ struggling special teams unit allowed the Packers to kick a field goal to cut the lead to seven points.
But they failed to recover an onside kick attempt and the offense closed it out.
The good news for the Eagles is that their offense was able to get back on track. They were able to capitalize on a vulnerable Packers run defense.
The bad news is the Eagles’ defense allowed the Packers’ best scoring performance of the season. And in part with a backup quarterback playing.
Though it wasn’t a perfect performance, the Eagles still sit in a pretty good spot atop the NFC playoff picture with a 10-1 record.
Next up for them is another home game against a Tennessee Titans team that lost to the Cincinnati Bengals earlier on Sunday.
Result: Philadelphia Eagles (40) – (33) Green Bay Packers
