Six former Utes and their respective teams currently have playoff spots locked up.

SALT LAKE CITY – For the first time in NFL history, the league enters week 18 for the regular-season finale. This officially marks the longest season ever and includes a full weekend of games starting with a double-header on Saturday, Jan. 8th, on ESPN.

Former MVP Lamar Jackson did not practice on Wednesday for the Baltimore Ravens, opening up the possibility for Tyler Huntley to start his fourth game of his career. The Pittsburg Steelers (8-7-1) visit the Ravens (8-8) on Sunday as both teams are on the bubble fighting for a playoff berth.

Zack Moss, Star Lotulelei and the Buffalo Bills (10-6) have clinched a playoff berth and welcome Javelin Guidry and the New York Jets (4-12) on Sunday afternoon. Pro Bowler Matt Gay, Terrell Burgess and the Los Angeles Rams (12-4) have also clinched a spot in the playoffs as they host Mitch Wishnowsky and the San Francisco 49ers (9-7), who are still in the hunt. A win for the 49ers would be huge, especially if they could get some help from Francis Bernard and the Dallas Cowboys (11-5) who travel to Philadelphia for an NFC East division showdown.

Leki Fotu and the Arizona Cardinals (11-5) have clinched a playoff spot and go up against Cody Barton and the Seattle Seahawks (6-10) on Sunday afternoon.

Week 17 Recap
Former QB1, Tyler Huntley, started his third game of his career on Sunday in place of an injured Lamar Jackson. In his three starts, Huntley is yet to find the win column and fell just one-point shy of earning his first win on Sunday against the Rams. In a tremendous effort, Huntley completed 20-32 pass attempts for 197 yards. Huntley continues to show how dangerous he can be outside of the pocket adding 54 yards on the ground.

Cody Barton played one of his best games as a professional collecting seven tackles, one tackle for loss and a pass deflection in the win against Detroit. On the other side of the ball, John Penisini had three tackles himself in the loss.

Jaylon Johnson saw game action for the first time since week 14 starting for the Chicago Bears at cornerback. Not missing a beat, Johnson had 4 tackles in the win against the New York Giants.
