Los Angeles Rams defeated New Orleans Saints in a controversial NFL playoff game on Sunday.
New England used Sunday's division matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers to remind the rest of the league that they cannot be counted out as Super Bowl contenders.
Pete Carroll defied the odds to take the Seattle Seahawks to the playoffs once again. He is an outsider for NFL Coach of the Year.
Nagy is the first Bears head coach, since George Halas in 1920, to win double digit games. That indicates the first-rate job the ex-Delaware and Arena League quarterback has done in turning this team around. The Bears have gone from worst to first in the NFC North when many expected a more modest 8-8 record, or even less.
Anthony Lynn deserves credit for steering this squad to a 12-4 record. In most divisions that would be enough for 1st place but unfortunately for Los Angeles they share a division with the indomitable Chiefs.
The main mark against Reid, though, would be the pretty porous Chiefs defence, which despite stellar individual performances from outside linebacker Dee Ford and defensive lineman Chris Jones, forced Kansas City to outscore opponents consistently.
Reich has to be among the top two candidates for this honour following the job he has done in his first head coaching position in the NFL.
