Jason Campbell took a pounding throughout the game leaving briefly before coming back to be knocked out

Josh Gordon had the biggest quietest game I have ever seen with his monster day

The Cleveland running game continues to be non-existent

Jericho Cotchery is nothing more than a random player as he finished without any catches today

Calvin Johnson should had a bigger day but Stafford missed him on a few throws along with the late drop

The Detroit Lions continue to find ways to lose games with bad interceptions by Staffford today

Rainey was not able to get going today and when he did have some nice runs they got called back on penalty

Revis did shadow Calvin in most of the first half before injury but did nothing to slow him down

Cordarelle Patterson drops a wide open game winning TD in overtime

Adrian Peterson had another solid performance but still seems to be not 100% today

Matt Flynn was able to lead the Packers back but that was a product of Minnesota falling apart than his play

Jamaal Charles 7 yard TD run

RB Ryan Mathews – hamstring injury

Danny Woodhead 11 yard TD catch & 5 yard TD run


Keenan Allen was all over the place in the first half with 8 catches for 104 yards

Jamaal Charles drops a 3 yard TD catch but still gets a 1 yard TD run

Injuries are going to become a real problem for the Chiefs at this point with their defense falling apart

The Chiefs defense was not able to get to the QB once again and was awful on the GW drive by the Chargers

Chicago Bears at St. Louis Rams






Josh McCown

36-47, 352 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT

Kellen Clemens

10-22, 167 yards, 1 TD

Matt Forte

16-77 yards rush

7-40 yards rec

Zac Stacy

12-87 yards, 1 TD

Brandon Marshall

10-117 yards, 1 TD

Benny Cunningham

13-109 yards, 1 TD

Alshon Jeffrey

4-42 yards

Tavon Austin

1-65 yards, 1 TD rush

2-39 yards rec

Earl Bennett

8-58 yards

Brian Quick

2-19 yards

Martellus Bennett

4-62 yards, 1 TD

Jared Cook

4-80 yards, 1 TD


Key Plays

Chris Williams left game with a concussion

Tavon Austin 65 yard TD run

Trumaine Johnson left game with a neck injury

Michael Bush 1 yard TD run

Zac Stacy left game with a concussion

Robert Quinn 31 yard fumble return for TD


Bears coaches are to blame for this loss. They had so many chances to put points on the board while on the

Goal line but instead ran the ball over and over with absolutely zero success.

Don’t get excited about Benny Cunningham. The Bears D-Line is atrocious & that is why he was successful.

Tavon Austin became just the 3rd player ever to have four 50+ yard TD’s in consecutive games.

Carolina Panthers at Miami Dolphins






Cam Newton

19-38, 174 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

8-51 yards, 1 TD rushing

Brandon Lafell

2-36 yards

Brian Hartline

Charles Clay

4-27 yards


Key Plays

Daniel Thomas left game with an ankle injury

Mike Wallace 53 yard TD reception


Cam Newton 5 yard TD run


Greg Olsen 1 yard TD reception


Every Panthers game should be on National TV so that Cam Newton remains interested throughout.

The Dolphins offense did nothing in the 2nd half. They need to be able to run the football to close out games.

Ted Ginn Jr. had a horrific drop on a 55 yard would be TD pass in this game.

It was a focus of the Dolphins to get the ball to Mike Wallace. He had 10 targets including several deep balls.

New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens






Geno Smith

9-22, 127 yards, 2 INT

Joe Flacco

17-26, 273 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

Chris Ivory

9-35 yards

Ray Rice

16-30 yards

Bilal Powell

11-41 yards

Bernard Pierce

11-30 yards

Santonio Holmes

1-12 yards

Torrey Smith

2-74 yards

Greg Salas

2-48 yards

Jacoby Jones

4-103 yards, 1 TD

Jeff Cumberland

1-9 yards

Ed Dickson

3-55 yards


Key Plays

Chris Canty left game with a shoulder injury

Justin Tucker FG’s of 26, 30, 33 & 53 yards

Antonio Cromartie left game with a hip injury

Jacoby Jones 66 yard TD reception

Chris Ivory left game with an ankle injury

Torrey Smith 60 yard reception


Geno Smith is actually getting worse. Opposing defenses are hip to him at this point & he isn’t improving.

The Ravens run game came back down to earth this week as they weren’t facing an awful rush defense again

There is not a single Jets WR worth owning in Fantasy Football.

I would stick with Torrey Smith despite his recent struggles.

Slide 8 of 12 Fantasy Football Weekly Recap: Week 12 | Slide - 8


Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans






Chad Henne

23-32, 239 yards

Case Keenum

18-34, 169 yards, 1 INT

Maurice Jones-Drew

14-84 yards, 1 TD rush

6-60 yards rec

Ben Tate

7-1 yard rush

5-26 yards rec

Jordan Todman

11-31 yards rush

Dennis Johnson

13-74 yards rush

2-13 yards rec

Cecil Shorts

8-71 yards

Andre Johnson

2-36 yards

Ace Sanders

4-61 yards

DeAndre Hopkins

1-8 yards

Marcedes Lewis

1-18 yards

Garrett Graham

5-32 yards


Key Plays


Maurice Jones-Drew 1 yard TD run


Josh Scobee FG’s of 30 & 53 yards


Randy Bullock FG’s of 20 & 49 yards


Many thought that a Texans/Falcons Super Bowl was possible at the start of this season. Now they are tied

For the worst record in all of football.

There is no explanation as to why Case Keenum completely avoided Andre Johnson in this game.

Ben Tate was benched in favor of Dennis Johnson who ran a lot better. Tate could lose his job for next week.

Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders






Ryan Fitzpatrick

30-42, 320 yards, 2 TD’s

5-26 yards rushing

Rashad Jennings

16-73 yards rush

4-49 yards rec

Kendall Wright

6-103 yards, 1 TD

Marcel Reece

5-14 yards rush

4-44 yards, 1 TD rec

Justin Hunter

6-109 yards, 1 TD

Andre Holmes

2-32 yards

Nate Washington

5-45 yards

Rod Streater

5-93 yards

Delanie Walker

5-46 yards

Mychal Rivera

1-10 yards


Key Plays

Mychal Rivera left game with a concussion

Justin Hunter 54 yard TD reception

Mike Jenkins left game with a concussion

Marcel Reece 27 yard TD reception

Kevin Burnett left game with a quad injury

Kendall Wright 10 yard TD reception


Look for Justin Hunter to stay involved as the Titans try & stretch the field & open up this offense.

As amazing as it sounds, the Titans are now holding the last Wild Card Playoff spot in the AFC at 5-6.

If you are one of the Matt McGloin drummers, please stop. He’s lucky to be a competent NFL backup QB.

We’re bummed about Chris Johnson’s game but as long as he touches the ball the numbers will come.

Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals






Andrew Luck

20-39, 163 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

Carson Palmer

26-37, 314 yards, 2 TD’s

Trent Richardson

7-15 yards rush

2-11 yards rec

Rashard Mendenhall

13-54 yards, 1 TD

1-24 yards rec

Dan Herron

4-33 yards rushing

Andre Ellington

10-50 yards rush

2-21 yards rec

T.Y. Hilton

5-38 yards

Larry Fitzgerald

5-52 yards, 2 TD’s

LaVon Brazill

3-35 yards

Michael Floyd

7-104 yards

Coby Fleener

4-55 yards, 1 TD

Rob Housler

4-51 yards


Key Plays

Vontae Davis left game with a groin injury

Larry Fitzgerald TD catches of 4 & 26 yards


Rashard Mendenhall 5 yard TD run


Coby Fleener 17 yard TD reception


Where did Donald Brown go? I have no idea but he only had 2 carries for 1 yard & 1 catch for -2 yards today.

Without Reggie Wayne the Colts offense has nobody that can move the chains and that is causing problems.

Carson Palmer has had back to back turnover free games for the first time all season.

The Colts need to activate Da’Rick Rogers to give this offense a playmaker and every down threat.

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants






Tony Romo

23-38, 250 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT

Eli Manning

16-30, 174 yards, 2 TD’s

DeMarco Murray

14-86 yards rush

3-40 yards rec

Andre Brown

Miles Austin

1-17 yards

Ruben Randle

3-64 yards

Terrence Williams

1-10 yards

Key Plays

Jim Cordle left game with a leg injury

Jeff Heath 50 yard fumble return for TD

Morris Claiborne left game with hamstring injury

Jason Witten TD catches of 2 & 20 yards

Dwayne Harris left game with hamstring injury

Louis Murphy 4 yard TD reception


The Giants are just not a good football team. Eli Manning is a shell of what he was 3 seasons ago.

Hakeem Nicks wanted to play in this game but was deactivated because he didn’t practice. Stay tuned…

The Brandon Myers TD was garbage. Myers fell down & the Cowboys didn’t realize nobody had touched him.

There is no excuse for Victor Cruz only getting 4 targets on the day.

Von Miller 60 yard fumble return for TD

D. Rogers-Cromartie left with a shoulder injury

Julian Edelman TD catches of 5 &14 yards


DeMaryius Thomas 11 yard TD reception


The Broncos led 24-0 at halftime. Stephen Gostkowski’s 31 yard FG won it in overtime.

Danny Amendola is an afterthought in the Patriots offense right now. Bench him until further notice.

Stevan Ridley fumbled for the 3rd consecutive game in the first quarter and was benched for the remainder.

Don’t start any of the other Broncos TE’s until Julius Thomas returns from his knee injury.
