Week 15 NFL Sunday is officially in the books. The end of NFL Sunday is always bitter sweet. In a interesting way, I can literally watch 11293 hours straight of NFL football. But alas, week 15 is in the books and we have few more Sundays to go. Here are the 3 biggest story lines from week 15 NFL Sunday and to get a full recap of all the games listen to the Just Talk Podcast.

This was just a weird and whacky NFL Sunday. The Detroit Lions somehow not only defeated the Cardinals but ran through them. The Saints shut out the Buccaneers giving Tom Brady his first shutout loss since 2006. And the Packers barely hung on against the Ravens with Tyler Huntley at quarterback. The top 3 teams in the NFC looked barely average on Sunday.
Tom Brady has been shut out for the first time in 15 YEARS ?

John Harbaugh decided to go for two to win the game for the 2nd time in 3 weeks and failed. At the end of the day I actually think it was the right decision knowing that if Aaron Rodgers gets the ball more bad then good happens. But whenever a big decision is made and doesn’t go the way the coach envisioned the media loves to question.

It feels like we are back to square one with COVID. With game postponements and key players out. It sucks. And it feels like it will affect the rest of the NFL season. COVID wins again.
Staffs across the NFL are now getting this message. Changes in testing protocol expected to go into effect tomorrow.
