#NFLVols Conclude Week 17 Action

It's been an exciting season for many of your favorite VFLs and now it's time for the NFL postseason to begin.

Peyton Manning finished the regular season with 39 passing touchdowns. During the season, Manning passed for over 500 career touchdown passes and broke numerous NFL records. With the win over Oakland, the Broncos earned a bye with the start of playoffs. Malik Jackson of the Broncos had a great game with two tackles, including one for a loss, a quarterback hurry and two pass deflections. 

Arian Foster left today's game with a hamstring injury. On the season, the five year veteran rushed for 1,269 yards, which marked his fourth season rushing for over 1,000 yards. Foster has recorded 14 touchdowns, rushing and passing combined. Despite today's win over Jacksonville, Houston will miss the playoffs.

Seattle's Tony McDaniel tallied three tackles in the win over St. Louis. The Seahawks seized the NFC's top seed for the West after having started the season 3-3. 

Dan William's three tackles limited San Fran. to 20 points, but did not provide Arizona a win. However, Williams will play in a Wild Card game vs. Carolina.
