Xavier McKinney has a career day in Giants win over the Eagles

The Giants shocked the Philadelphia Eagles with the Eagles playing for the NFC East thanks in a major part to Xavier McKinney. McKinney with a contract decision looming recorded two picks with one being Bama on Bama crime as he picked off Jalen Hurts on a pass intended for Julio Jones. McKinney's first interception was one of the more impressive interceptions of the season while his second interception showed his play recognition and intelligence. A'Shawn Robinson recorded two tackles in the game with one for a loss. On the losing side, the Eagles were without Alabama Football star Devonta Smith but, Julio Jones had two catches for 13 yards.

Tua and Dolphins struggle dropping AFC East Title game against Bills

Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins limped to the finish line to end the season and as a result, they lost the AFC East on Sunday Night. Tua went 17-27 for 173 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The Alabama Football alum finished the season with 4,451 yards which was the best in the league. The Dolphins certainly missed Jaylen Waddle who missed the game with an injury.

Alabama Football: Tide represented all over the playoffs

As always the Alabama Football team is very well represented in the playoffs this year. The AFC's top seed the Ravens have Marlon Humphrey and Jaylon Armour-Davis who are on injured reserve. The NFC's top seed the 49ers has Cameron Latu who's also on IR. Najee Harris will be joined by Minkah Fitzpatrick who returns from IR to face the Bills.
