Notable Week 8 Matchups From The 2017 Season
Because postseason seeding (and draft orders) are all based on regular season performances, it’s easy to look back on the past year and pick out the most notable Week 8 matchups from the 2017 season. When the Panthers met the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay, for example, they were 4-2 and looking like a potential playoff team. The Bucs, meanwhile, were 2-4, and they desperately needed a win. Of course, Carolina beat them 17-3, all but eliminating Jameis Winston’s club from the postseason (while Cam Newton proved his mettle as a top dual-threat QB against an erstwhile heir apparent).
Week 8’s Monday Night Football matchup also had playoff implications, as the 5-2 Chiefs beat the 3-3 Broncos 29-19. The game wasn’t pretty for quarterback Alex Smith (202 yards, 1 TD), who had a hot start to the season. As perhaps a preview of things that came, the Chiefs – behind the fading play of Smith at the helm – were bounced by the underdog Titans in the wildcard round of the playoffs, putting a possible end to his starting status in Kansas City.
