NFL Week 14 "Studs & Duds"
McCoy literally plowed his way through a half foot of snow en-route to a franchise record for rushing yards in a single game with 217 yards on the ground. McCoy had 2 scores and propelled the Eagles to a win as Philadelphia improves its record to 8-5 on the season!
Like a Boss! Ross had a 172 yards on kickoff returns, including a 98 yarder for a TD and a 71 yd Punt return for a TD. On the day, Boss finished overall with 243 returns yards and 2 TD's!
Another strong outing by Gordon! 7 receptions for 151 Yards and a TD (he also had a run for 34 yards) puts him at 1,400 receiving yards for the season, currently the league leader. Yes you read that right! The debate on whether or not Gordon is the best Wide Receiver in the league can now be made and can be compared to Calvin "Megatron" Johnson.
Andy Dalton did it through the air (24 of 35 275 yards 3 TD 0 INT) and on the ground (1 Rushing TD) as he lead the Bengals to a convincing 42-28 win over the Indianapolis Colts!
Jamal Charles week in and week out provides consistent and highly productive offense and is probably the team MVP. Charles had 2 TD's against the Redskins (1 Rushing, 1 Receiving) and a total of 159 yards (151 Rushing, 8 receiving)
I think his 64 yard Field Goal is good of enough reason for Prater to be on the Studs list as he set the record for longest FG in NFL History! Congratulations to Matt Prater! Along with his record breaking kick, he hit from 25 and 19 yds. finish 3/3 on FG for the day and 6/6 on Extra Points
John Abraham anchored the Arizona Cardinals defense in their 30-10 win over the St. Louis Rams, registering 6 tackles, 3 sacks and 1 pass deflection!
League MVP!? Manning certainly continues to make his case for it as he finished the day going 39 of 59 397 Passing Yards and 4 TD's 0 INT's in the Denver Broncos 51-28 blowout against the Tennessee Titans.
The next four players are all from the same team(New Orleans) as they all shined in the Saints 31-13 win over divisional foe Carolina Panthers!
Drew Brees has plenty to be pumped about as he had another terrific game going 30 of 42 for 313 yards 4 TD 0 INT en route to the Saints 10th win of the season and sole possession of the NFC South!
Marques Colston ran right through the Carolina Panthers secondary! Colston had 9 receptions going for 125 yards and 2 TD's!
As I said all season, Jimmy Graham is arguably Drew Brees favorite target. The two connected 6 times and Graham finished with 58 receiving yards with 2 TD's to go along with it!
The Carolina Panthers offensive line had a hard time containing Junior Galette from getting to Cam Newton! Galette finished with 6 tackles and 3 sacks!
McCown has been holding down the fort in the absence of Jay Cutler. McCown improved his record to 3-4 and did it with style as he finished with 5 total TD's (4 Passing, 1 Rushing) and 348 yards passing in the Bears 45-28 beat down on the Cowboys
Very unproductive day from Stafford. Just 10 of 25 and 148 yards. Had trouble handling the ball as he had 5 fumbles and lost one of them. Stafford will have to learn on adapting to bad conditions while still having a productive game.
Unfortunately "Mother Nature" was too much for the "Freak of Nature" known as "Megatron" as Calvin Johnson finished with just 3 receptions for 49 yards.
Just a complete disaster all across the board for E.J. Manuel! 184 yards of Passing 0 TD and was picked off 4 times! Manuel also had a difficult time escaping pressure as the Buccaneers defense sacked him 7 times!
Plenty went wrong for the Washington Redskins in their 45-10 beating at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs. Alfred Morris was not able to provide much highlights for the Redskins and give them something positive to go off of heading into next week. Morris had just 12 carries for 31 yards.
This picture speaks for itself. Kellen Clemens was just 16 of 27 for 181 yards with 0 TD 2 INT and a fumble.
Another poor outing by Ryan Fitzpatrick more than likely completely diminished any playoff hopes the Tennessee Titans may have had still had. Fitzpatrick finished the day 13 of 24 172 yards 1 TD 1 INT and mishandled a handoff that resulted in Chris Johnson fumbling.
The New York Giants season is officially dead as they are now eliminated from playoff contention. Manning was 20 of 32 for 259 yards but only managed 1 TD Pass with 2 INT's. One of his INT's was in San Diego territory and the Chargers eventually scored a TD off the turnover, causing a 14 point swing. This was/is arguably Eli Manning's worst season to date of his career.
