Weekend In NFL: Falcons’ Cash Money Tribute, Seahawks Zero In On Top Seed

When Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant hit a 50-yard field goal against the New Orleans Saints, genius happened. During Sunday’s showdown (Dec. 21), the Falcons’ social team fired up the Photoshop to create this album cover, inspired by the Nawlins-based Cash Money and No Limit Records. ATL flew away with the victory, 30-14. Bling bling! [SB Nation]

The New York Jets failed to land a consecutive win after taking on Tom Brady & The Gang at MetLife Stadium. The 17-16 loss against the New England Patriots saw quarterback Geno Smith throwing his 13th interception of the season in the third quarter and getting sacked twice in the fourth. Sunday’s game marked what could be head coach Rex Ryan’s final home game.

[Bleacher Report] The Seattle Seahawks unleashed the beast when running back Marshawn Lynch nailed a 79-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals during last night’s 35-6 win. While his team was gushing over his run, Mr. Skittles (whose upset stomach during the game had Twitter saying the same joke) thanked everyone for simply asking. [Deadspin]

The Seahawks also toasted to their accomplishments after amassing a franchise-record 596 yards, inching them closer to another NFC West title and the No. 1 seed in the conference. [ESPN]
