    The 17-week grind that is the NFL regular season is quickly coming to an end, and while most of the postseason drama has been settled on the football field, there are still several details that will be settled in the final week of the regular season.

    Despite all the accolades she’s garnered over the last four years, Makayla Epps still considers herself just a “county/country kid” who has been blessed with all she has accomplished.
