32 things we learned from all the games

The 32 things we learned from Week 16 of the 2019 NFL season:

1. Saturday games > Sunday games, which were a letdown — at least in terms of enjoyable contests loaded with broader meaning, after an exciting trio of matchups kicked off the weekend.

2. That said, hats off to also-rans like the Giants, Redskins, Bengals, Dolphins and others. The aforementioned quartet had nothing to play for but pride — in fact, losing actually meant better position in the 2020 draft — but NFL players are nothing if not prideful. Some exciting football from what projected to be dog games at first blush. 

2a. And kudos to the Jets, Julio Jones, Arizona and many others who showed professionalism when it’s almost time to pack it up. Let’s not accuse any NFL team of tanking again. That’s the purview of the NBA and Major League Baseball.
