Week Eighteen in Review

The first ever Week Eighteen of the NFL season is complete and the playoffs start this weekend.

There was a unique situation in the Packers game against the Lions yesterday, as Rasul Douglas of the Packers tried to knock the ball away from Lions snapper Scott Daly on a field goal attempt late in the game. Apparently it was to prevent a practice kick after the Packers called time out, but the strange play was penalized.

Congrats to Matt Overton who led all snappers this year with five tackles following two assisted tackles this week. Overton only started snapping for Dallas in Week Five.

The Bears worked out four snappers this week in case client Patrick Scales could not snap. Scales did snap Sunday, but the Bears signed veteran Kameron Canaday to the practice squad. The tryout also included Joe Fortunato, client Jordan Silver and Steven Wirtel.

In addition to Overton’s two assisted tackles this week, Blake Ferguson (Dolphins) had a solo and assisted tackle, while his brother Reid Ferguson (Bills) had a solo stop. James Winchester (Chiefs) and Zach Wood (Saints) also had solo tackles and Jacob Bobenmoyer (Broncos) recorded an assisted tackle.
