Week 17 NFL: Scores, Recaps and Bloodbaths

It's the finale of the 2014-15 NFL regular season with several teams needing help to clinch a playoff berth, while for others it's simple: win and your in.

Cleveland Browns, 10 vs. Baltimore Ravens, 20

The Ravens defeated the Browns 20-10 and are heading back to the playoffs after a one-year absence from the postseason.

Dallas Cowboys, 37 vs. Washington Redskins, 17

After a surprise 12-4 season and a late push for a bye week, Dallas has settled into the third seed in the NFC Playoffs. Here's the total picture.

Indianapolis Colts, 27 vs. Tennessee Titans, 10

A 27-10 road win at Tennessee is Colts' 13th straight in AFC South and produces third consecutive 11-5 regular season.

New Orleans Saints, 23 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 20

This isn't another pointless piece on how Lovie Smith was too conservative and played another game "not to lose" which ended up in another loss. I'm here to tell you, from my perspective, the Bucs as an organization played to hopefully lose in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Philadelphia Eagles, 34 vs. New York Giants, 26

Buffalo Bills, 17 vs. New England Patriots, 9

Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 vs. Houston Texans, 23

Jaguars closed the regular season winless on the road as they dropped their season finale in Houston, 23-17.

San Diego Chargers, 7 vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 19

New York Jets, 37 vs. Miami Dolphins, 24

Coming into week seventeen the reports were that the Jets would clean house, fire Rex Ryan and John Idzik. After Sunday’s impressive victory it is not set in stone that will happen. The Jets beat their division rival by a score of 37-24 in their season finale, which will put things up in the air.

Chicago Bears, 9 vs. Minnesota Vikings, 13

With eight catches in today’s game, Matt Forte ended the season with 102 catches, which breaks Larry Center’s record for the most receptions by a running back in a single season.

Oakland Raiders, 14 vs. Denver Broncos, 47

The (12-4) Broncos defeated the (3-13) Raiders today in Denver 47-14, securing the AFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye.

Arizona Cardinals, 17 vs. San Francisco 49ers, 20

The San Francisco 49ers made it official following Sunday's 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals: Jim Harbaugh will no longer be the team's head coach.

Detroit Lions, 14 vs. Green Bay Packers, 30

Aaron Rodgers returned from an injured calf to help the Packers beat the Lions in Sunday's NFC North title game at Lambeau Field. After the injury, the Packers scored 16 unanswered points as Rodgers went 13-of-15 for 129 yards and a touchdown.

St. Louis Rams, 6 vs. Seattle Seahawks, 20

Carolina Panthers, 34 vs. Atlanta Falcons, 3

At halftime, the Seahawks held a 245 to 60 edge in total yards but were losing in the two most critical statistics - the score, of course, and turnover margin. By evening the 0-2 halftime takeaway deficit with big plays from defenders Jordan Hill, Bruce Irvin, the Seahawks survived to win the NFC West and capture the conference's No. 1 seed.

Cincinnati Bengals, 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 27
