It’s said that history is written by the perspective of the winners, and here at GuysNation.com we’re taking that perspective to the NFL.

Though the games from Week 16 aren’t all complete, I’ve found some articles by fans/analysts of the Week 16 winning teams which provide a perspective on the outcomes of the games which have already gone final.

The first was a 32 yd. return by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and the second was a 66 yd. return for Greg Toler. After the first quarter, the Cardinals were up 14-0.

Chicago Bears 38 – New York Jets 34

The Chicago Bears hosted the New York Jets Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field and after the smoke cleared and it was over ,it had ended up being a pretty good shootout with the Bears winning the game 38-34.  Chicago’s offense was on fire for a better part of the game while their defense had a hard time stopping the Jets.  They ended up allowing the second biggest point total of the season (the Bears defense), but luckily their offense was up to the task of keeping them in the game and helping them get that second or first seed.  Read more.
