With the seventeenth Sunday of the 2017 NFL season now in the books, let's take a look at the two teams that put on the most impressive performances of the week. The Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons both took care of business yesterday to ensure that they would be in the playoffs and have a chance at the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills won and got some help to get into the playoffs after almost two decades.

Tennesse Titans

The Tennesse Titans faced a win-and-your-in scenario against the rival Jacksonville Jaguars to get into the playoffs.

The game was ugly for both offenses, with no scoring in the first quarter. Derrick Henry then took a short swing pass 66 yards at the start of the second to make it 6-0, after their extra point was blocked. The rest of the quarter saw field goals be traded, as the Titans had a 12-3 halftime lead.

The Titans added a field goal in the third to make it 15-3.

Jacksonville managed a 67-yard fumble return touchdown in the fourth to cut it to 15-10, but never threatened as Tennesee locked down their offense to win the game. They held Jacksonville to eight punts and forced three turnovers while only allowing them to score a single field goal on offense.

Atlanta Falcons

Just like the Titans, the Atlanta Falcons faced a win-and-in home game to make the playoffs against a division rival, the Carolina Panthers.

Offense was also at a premium in this game, as the Falcons scored in the first quarter and Carolina in the second to make it 7-7 at halftime.

The second half saw the game not be won by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones but by the Falcons defense and veteran kicker Matt Bryant.

Atlanta's defense forced three Cam Newton interceptions and held the Panthers to three points on offense. Meanwhile, Bryant made five field goals in the second half, including a 56-yarder to get Atlanta into the playoffs with a 22-10 victory.

Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills went on the road to face the rival Miami Dolphins, needing a win and some help to get into the playoffs. With the Dolphins playing David Fales at quarterback for basically the entire game, Buffalo got out to a 19-0 lead midway through the third quarter, despite the loss of star running back LeSean McCoy.

However, Miami then went on a 16-3 run to cut the score to 22-16 with just under two minutes in the game. They then recovered the onside kick, but Jordan Poyer sealed the victory for Buffalo by intercepting Fales soon after. With some help for the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo managed to finally get into the playoffs again.
