What Have We Learned on the Last Day of The Regular Season

Adrian Peterson showed us what true greatness was all about. Even though he did not break the single season rushing record, he carried his Minnesota Vikings into the playoffs which was much more important. Hence, one can say that Mr. Peterson embodies what it means to be a true professional.

Tony Romo‘s legacy is marred in the fact that in the face of franchise-changing games, he can never seem to rise to the occasion; the Dallas Cowboys find themselves again on the outside looking in.

We learned that you should not allow others to control your destiny and that every game you lose, could be the be the deciding factor in making or missing the playoffs. The following teams learned this lesson: the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New York Giants, and the Chicago Bears.

All Andrew Luck and his Indianapolis Colts needed was a reminder of what their season was all about; that reminder came in the form of Chuck Pagano.
