AFC-NFC Championship Sunday

January 24th, 2021 by FootballWiz | No Comments | Filed in Football, General, NFL, Sports

AFC-NFC Championship Sunday

Maxwell Club Momentum

By Joseph Santoliquito

Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Update
Championship Weekend


Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Jan. 17.

This weekend holds the key to the door of Super Bowl LV. The final four teams are set and this Sunday will determine the special two clubs that will head to Tampa Bay.

Championship Sunday begins with the NFC Championship Game, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) travel to play the Green Bay Packers (14-3) for the George Halas Trophy at Lambeau Field (3:05 PM ET, FOX). The Buccaneers are appearing in their first Championship Game since the 2002 season, when they went on to win Super Bowl XXXVII, while the Packers are making their second consecutive appearance. The game features the quarterback with the most postseason wins in NFL history, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady (32), against the franchise with the most world championships, Green Bay (13).

In the AFC on Sunday (6:40 PM ET, CBS), the top two seeds in the conference, the Buffalo Bills (15-3) and Kansas City Chiefs (15-2), face off at Arrowhead Stadium for the Lamar Hunt Trophy. Buffalo’s Josh Allen (24 years old) and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes (25) could become just the second pair of opposing quarterbacks under the age of 26 to start a conference Championship Game, joining Vince Ferragamo (25 years old) of the Los Angeles Rams and Doug Williams (24) of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1979 NFC title game.

The Bills are playing in the AFC Championship for the first time since the 1993 season, when they defeated the Chiefs to advance to Super Bowl XXVIII. Kansas City, meanwhile, is only the second team in NFL history to host three consecutive Championship Games, joining the 2002-04 Philadelphia Eagles, who were also led by head coach Andy Reid.

Maxwell Football Club Pro Momentum

Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Update – Week 15
Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Dec. 15.

The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns stamped an exclamation point on a thrilling week in what has been a thrilling season of NFL football by carving their names next to a record that had stood undisturbed for 98 years.

Until Monday night, when Baltimore and Cleveland combined for nine rushing touchdowns, only a pair of 1922 games had ever included as many touchdowns on the ground.

Then, the Ravens and Browns decided the game in the air.

Lamar Jackson threw a 44-yard, fourth-down touchdown pass to Marquise Brown to give Baltimore a 42-35 lead with 1:51 remaining. Then, after Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt scored on a 22-yard pass from Baker Mayfield with 1:04 left, the Ravens’ Justin Tucker converted a 55-yard, game-winning field goal in the final seconds.

Was it the game of the year?

In a season stocked with game-of-the-year candidates, it may be. There are 48 games remaining to determine that in what has been a crazy season.

History Fuels Playoff Hopes

In each of the past 42 seasons (1977-2019, excluding 1982, when divisional play did not occur), at least one team has won its division the season after missing the playoffs. This week, with either a Cleveland loss on Sunday or a win on Monday Night Football at Cincinnati (8:15 PM ET, ESPN), the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) can extend that streak.

Since 1990, at least four teams every season have qualified for the playoffs after failing to make the postseason the year before.

At least two teams have won their divisions the season after missing the playoffs in 16 of the past 17 years.

And in 15 of the past 17 seasons, at least one team finished in first place in its division the season after finishing in last or tied for last place. In fact, of the 48 teams in league history to go from “worst-to-first,” 25 of them have done so in the past 17 years (2003-19), including an NFL-record three such teams in 2005 and 2006. Two teams during that span, the 2009 New Orleans Saints and the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles, won the Super Bowl after finishing in last place in their divisions the season before.

Saturdays Are Special In December

The NFL kicks off its annual schedule of Saturday games this week when the Buffalo Bills (10-3) travel to play the Denver Broncos (5-8) at Empower Field at Mile High (4:30 PM ET, NFLN). In Game 2 of the doubleheader, the Carolina Panthers (4-9) are at the Green Bay Packers (10-3), who clinched the NFC North title last week, on Saturday night (8:15 PM ET, NFLN).

Bills quarterback Josh Allen ranks sixth in the NFL with a career-high 3,641 passing yards and could become just the second player in Buffalo history to reach 4,000 in a single season, joining Drew Bledsoe (4,359 passing yards in 2002).

Denver rookie wide receiver KJ Hamler caught two touchdowns in the team’s road win last week. Hamler is one of nine NFL rookies with at least three receiving touchdowns this season.

Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams had seven receptions for 115 yards and one touchdown in the Packers’ Week 14 win. He has recorded a touchdown reception in eight consecutive games, tied for the third-longest streak within a single season in the Super Bowl era. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (12 games in 1987) and A.J. Green (nine games in 2012) have longer streaks. (more…)

Maxwell Football Club and The Ertz Foundation Team Up

October 20th, 2020 by FootballWiz | No Comments | Filed in College Sports, Football, General, NFL, Sports

The Maxwell Football Club Partners with the Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner to Host Free Combine for Philadelphia High School Football Players.

The Philadelphia Public High School Football League won’t be playing football this fall, even though most of the state of Pennsylvania is playing on Friday nights. For many of these high school football players, football is their safe place, their lifeline, it’s their family, and it’s a potential vehicle that could change the trajectory of their lives. For these Seniors, not playing football this year could negatively impact their chances of playing college football, making it that much harder to pursue their dreams. In an effort to provide hope to a community in need, The Maxwell Football Club partnered with The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner to host The Beyond The Field Senior Showcase, which was a free, state-of-the-art combine for Philadelphia high school football players. The participant fees were completely covered by donations from The Maxwell Football Club, The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner – so every high school athlete who participated was able to do so without charge.

The combine was held on Saturday, October 17th, and proved to be a huge success. There were approximately 150 high school football players who attended the combine to display their skills in front of scouts and college coaches. There were more than 40 college coaches from 32 different universities who attended the combine. There were also 15 high school coaches working with the players, 7 of which have coached in at least one state championship game. These high school athletes had the opportunity to record times for the 40-yard dash, the pro shuttle, vertical jump and also performed on the field drills. Due to the pandemic, safety was of the utmost importance during the combine. The Maxwell Football Club provided athletic trainers and followed strict COVID-19 precautions – including temperature checks and masks for all combine attendees.

Do or Die for the season by Game 3 for Eagles

September 27th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

Do or Die for the Eagles by Game 3 in the season.  Most Eagles fans once again felt they had a Division winning team and playoff bound at the beginning of the season.  As per 2020, that appears not to be in the cards.  With an 0-2 start, the Eagles are already facing must win games and the bid for the division and playoffs on the line.  With terrible performances in the first 2 games and tons of sacks and mistakes and shoddy play by Carson Wentz leaves the Philly fan base bedazzled as the Eagles enter Game 3 against the lowly Bengals who are also 0-2 and once again the Eagles are expected to Win.

Carson Wentz has assured the fans that he is ready to play and focused on the game and believes the Eagles will rebound with a win and a chance to get back in the hunt.

The keys to the game as far as I see it are: (more…)

Maxwell College Football Weekly Update

September 17th, 2020 by FootballWiz | No Comments | Filed in Football, General, NCAA, Sports
Maxwell Football Club
Weekly College Football Update
Week 2  
By Rich Cirminiello

Highlights of notable Maxwell Award candidates
for the week ending Sept. 12  
   
Who’s Hot  

WR Jonathan Adams, Arkansas State  

The abbreviated September slate is providing a bigger spotlight to the Sun Belt Conference… and the league is capitalizing on it. The Red Wolves went into Manhattan and shocked Kansas State, 35-31, for just their second-ever win over a Power 5 opponent. Adams led the way with three TD catches, including a spectacular one-handed grab and the game-winner with 38 seconds left.

QB Micale Cunningham, Louisville

Cunningham has picked up where he left off in 2019. And that’s going to make for some exciting times this fall in Louisville. There are still some kinks and a little rust, but the junior still accounted for 367 total yards and four scores in Saturday’s 35-21 win over a dangerous Western Kentucky squad. Cunningham’s 70-yard scoring strike to Dez Fitzpatrick put the game out of reach in the third quarter.

QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas 

UTEP was on the other side of the ball, so no one should get too carried away after one weekend. But the Longhorn passing game was potent in Saturday’s 59-3 rout, despite using a slew of new and young receivers. Chemistry was no problem for Ehlinger, who completed 25-of-33 for 426 yards and five touchdown passes to five different teammates.
