Overwhelming Emotion in Buffalo, and the Defining Moments of Week 18

The MMQB NFL Podcast

Jan 9 2023 • 1 hr 10 mins

That’s a wrap for the regular season, but the entire week was unforgettable across the NFL. Conor and Gary start with an unbelievable opening play in Buffalo, and the Bills pulling it together under unreal circumstances. Also, Conor discusses the time he spent in Western New York last week, as greater Buffalo worked its way through the emotion of Damar Hamlin’s collapse and recovery.

Then, the Packers go out in a very familiar way, and Aaron Rodgers leaves the field in a kind of weird way—what does it all mean? Pete Carroll is a hat-wearing playoff coach, Jalen Hurts returns, and the Cowboys (hopefully for their sake) get their January dud out of the way.

Plus, the Bengals and the coin flip that wasn’t, the Chargers mangle themselves in a meaningless game, the Jaguars win the AFC South despite one of their worst performances of the year, the Sean Payton-Broncos connection that makes little sense for Sean Payton, and the Bears find themselves in a fascinating spot after clinching the top pick of the draft.
