Bill Speros writes: "Florida NFL fans have landed on the 'Nice' list as all three NFL teams in the Sunshine State are in first place as the season hits Christmas Weekend. The Buccaneers rolled over the Packers in Green Bay in Week 15, in Baker Mayfield's best performance of his career, as he finished with a perfect passer rating in a dominant 34-20 win. Jaguars' QB Trevor Lawrence landed in concussion protocol after taking a beating at the hands of the Ravens Sunday night. His replacement on Sunday would be C.J. Beathard. Either way, the Buccaneers defense will be the difference in this one."
