Last week! Who's still in contention?!?!
The winner of each game (or user if playing the CPU) must post a short game summary following their game. The summary must include the following:
Key Team Stats
Key Individual Stats
This can be as basic or as simply as you would like to make it. However, the more engaging the posts are, the more invested other users will be in this thread and the league in general. Its up to you how much effort you want to put into it.
Here are some links to help out your summaries:

Chris Johnson's Big Game Leads Titans Past Jaguars
Coach Hart didn't rest his players today with the AFC South title already wrapped up, but apparently his defense decided to take the day off anyway. Chris Johnson had huge holes to run through all day and he took advantage of them, going for 210 yards and 3 touchdowns on just 18 carries.
The Jaguars still had a chance late though, driving inside the 10 yard line with less than 2 minutes ago. However, all hopes were dashed when Philip Rivers threw an interception in the end zone with 30 seconds remaining.
Asked if he was concerned about the team's momentum going into the playoffs Coach Hart said "Well, I'd rather lose this week than next." Joking aside, the Jaguars coach was obviously frustrated with his team's performance. "I'm not sure what happened today. We had a great week of practice, a lot of energy, so I don't think it was laziness or complacency. And we've been excellent with our run defense all year. Sometimes you just have to tip your cap to the opposition; the Titans offensive line completely dominated us in the running game, and if you give Chris Johnson even a little bit of room he's going to hurt you."
The passing game looked good today for the Jags, but they were once again undone by the turnover bug, which has been Philip Rivers' Achilles heel all year long. The Jacksonville quarterback knows that his team's run in the playoffs will be short if they don't do a better job holding on to the ball. "We had a pretty good game offensively today; we had a balanced attack and put some long drives together, but all it takes is 1 or 2 bad plays to undo all the hard work. We've got to cut out these bad plays, because when you get to the playoffs you don't have any room for mistakes."
The Jaguars looked like they were going to cruise in this game, as they forced a quick punt and then had a long touchdown drive that took up most of the first quarter. But something lit a fire in Chris Johnson and he went for a 56 yard touchdown run shortly thereafter, and he never let up. After the game, Coach Rex Ryan said "People said we didn't have anything to play for today, but that's bullsh*t. We played today for what we work for every day; self respect. We have too much pride to lay down. The message to the team today was this: 'we're not playing next week, and no win is going to make up for that, so we better go out and get all of our frustrations out.' You can't leave anything out on the field when you know you're going to have all offseason to think about it."
The Jaguars are fighting with the Baltimore Ravens for the #3 seed in the AFC. Depending on how the rest of the games turn out, they could face either the Dolphins, Chargers, or Raiders in the Wildcard round.
