NFL Week 17 In Review Meets Untappd Data
And just like that, the regular season has come to a close. There were a few COVID-19 related hiccups, but ultimately, 256 games were played with no cancellations. Now, we turn our eyes to the playoffs, where the final 14 teams will battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy. Will the winner on the field win on the Untappd gridiron? Time will tell.
To determine this, we will see which city (10 mile radius around the stadium) has the largest increase in check-ins compared to their season average. This levels the playing field and will give us a better idea as to which team actually won the matchup on the Untappd gridiron. Ultimately, whichever team has the larger increase, or smaller decrease, will move on to the next round.
Fun Facts From 2020 Season
Here are some fun facts from the 2020 NFL regular season through an Untappd lens:
- Over the course of the regular season, nine different stadiums led at least one week in total check-ins.
- The NFC South was the only division to have each team lead at least one week in check-ins at the stadium.
- The four teams (Chiefs, Browns, Colts & Saints) that led at least two weeks in check-ins at the stadium all made the playoffs, and combined for a record of 48-16.
- Based on your check-ins that you tagged me in, the strongest fan representation was from the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets.
- Since the start of the season, nearly 6,000 check-ins included the football emoji!
While New York led the way in check-ins, it was the city of Jacksonville that boasted the largest increase in check-ins from the week prior. Jacksonville's run of 15 straight losses secured them the top pick in the draft, and getting one step closer to Trevor Lawrence, or Justin Fields, must have the fan base ecstatic! Jacksonville has seen its check-ins increase each of the past three weeks, culminating in a 11.5 percent jump from Week 16 to Week 17! Here are the two most popular beers over the last two weeks in the Jacksonville area!
For the first time all year, Raymond James Stadium led the way in check-ins! A playoff bound Tampa Bay team locked themselves in as the 5th seed with a decisive win over the Atlanta Falcons. Some perennial favorites at the stadium showed up on Sunday, as the two beers featured below are the second and third most popular beers at the stadium.
Tampa Bay will face off against Washington this upcoming weekend.
Well, it's finally over and Adam Gase is finally gone. Here's to new beginnings, Jeff!

Aaron Rodgers is the likely MVP and a strong regular season gives Green Bay the pivotal first round bye.

A first round bye should do Kansas City well as they look to repeat as champs!
Amy's rating of the beer is surely higher than what the consensus rating of Philadelphia's performance was on Sunday night.

To be honest, I don't know how they did it either. However, everyone is 0-0 now, and the Bears get to face off against the Saints.
