Clutch Encounters: Week 16

Bah humbug. The Raiders and Eagles played arguably the worst game of the season to end Week 16. Also: Cam delivers, the first game-winning drive of the Jared Goff era, and another team bites the dust after trying an ill-advised field goal in New England.

Clutch Encounters: Week 12

Pittsburgh and Arizona remind us that you only need 20 seconds for a field goal. Also: a most predictable Titans-Colts ending, a tale of three seasons in 12 weeks for the Chiefs, and Joe Flacco shows us what a "Flacco" is on Monday night.
