Notable Week 9 Matchups From The 2017 Season
Looking back on an action-packed year, there actually weren’t many notable Week 9 matchups from the 2017 season (at least as far as playoff implications are concerned). However, the Bills went to 5-3 after losing 34-21 to the lowly 3-5 Jets, which mirrors the middling play that plagued their first playoff appearance – and first playoff loss – in 17 years.
However, Week 9’s tilt between the Falcons and the Panthers could have had significant playoff implications, as Carolina beat Atlanta to push the latter to .500 (4-4). It took a late-season surge for Matt Ryan and company to get back into the playoff picture, and they’re still vying for an NFC title shot, while the Panthers were bounced by the Saints in Wildcard Weekend.
There was one event during Week 9 that had tremendous playoff implications, but it didn’t happen in-game. During practice before their Week 9 matchup against the Colts, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson tore his ACL, derailing not only his Rookie of the Year season, but also basically eliminating Houston from the playoffs after just half a season of football.
