Clutch Encounters: Super Bowl LII

There were air yards. There were rushing yards. There were QB receiving yards. There were more yards in Super Bowl LII than in any other game in NFL history. The 2017 season ends like it began: with New England's defense getting destroyed.

Clutch Encounters: AFC Championship Game

Jacksonville tried to steal the show, but the Patriots reminded us that quarterbacks are still the main attraction in the NFL. You can't hide them, but you have to protect them late in games. The Patriots did so again to pull off another fourth-quarter comeback.

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.

The Game of the Year is actually the Game of the Year -- but what can the NFL do about the Calvin Johnson Catch Rule and end-zone fumbles? Also: another handsome game-winning drive for the 49ers, Aaron Rodgers' shaky return, and the week of the onside kick.

Clutch Encounters: NO-ATL

If you enjoy an excessive amount of injuries, penalties, and bad interceptions thrown by veteran quarterbacks, then Saints-Falcons was right up your alley. We look at the big early swings that went against New Orleans, Matt Ryan's pick parade, and a most regrettable throw by Drew Brees.

Clutch Encounters: Week 13

Pittsburgh and Cincinnati clash for a bit of the old ultra-violence. Also: the Kansas City spiral, Jimmy Garoppolo impresses, an AFC South rerun, Derrick Henry's irrelevant long touchdowns, and the effects of modified overtime.
