Brandon Weeden made a ton of mistakes once again but he will at least take the shots downfield

McGahee was far move involved than anyone who have expected

Joe Haden tried to guess on the Shorts TD and got burned for the game-winning TD

Andrew Luck is still struggling with Reggie Wayne and got away with a ton of mistakes

Darius Heyward-Bey continues to play horrible and seemed to benched after a bad drop in the  3rd quarter

Notes

McCown throws am interception in the redzone that is called back on offsides early in the first quarter

Both coaching staffs made horrible decisions throughout the game with both strategy and play-calling

Patterson was able to find the endzone on a rushing TD but is still barely involved in the game plan

Walsh had a previous GW FG called back due to a penalty then missed the longer one.Gould missed FG in OT

Notes

17 yard Miller run called back due to penalty early on but he ran decently and could do better vs a bad D

Ryan Tannehill throws have not been even close to his receivers or always late

Geno Smith benched at the half after another horrific performance

Matt Simms was barely more effective than Geno Smith as this offense has become the worst in the league

Notes

The Cardinals missed A. Ellington in this game. They could have used his pass catching ability on 3rd down.

Nick Foles has set an NFL record for TD passes without throwing an interception with 19.

DeSean Jackson had a 54 yard punt return for TD called back due to holding on Kurt Coleman.

Cardinals have allowed a TD to TE’s in 6 of last 7 games.

Notes

With D. Williams out the Panthers split carries evenly between Stewart & Tolbert. Tolbert has more value.

I hate to say it but Bobby Rainey impresses me. I would definitely play him as an RB2 going forward.

The Panthers Defense sacked Mike Glennon 5 times and forced 2 turnovers this afternoon.

Brandon LaFell is a better Fantasy WR than Steve Smith right now & probably going forward as well.

Notes

The Pats had Stevan Ridley stand with a football on the sidelines today. This was a very childish move.

It looks like Brady is far more comfortable throwing to Edelman than Amendola.

Ben Tate desperately needed this performance today. He is locked in as the RB1 now for rest of this season.

When Ridley is out, Blount is a usable Fantasy player. He gets carries & the all important goal line touches.

Notes

These are 2 terrible defenses making each others offense look far better than they really are.

I love this from Roddy White but am not sold that he is anything more than a WR3 the rest of the way.

Embattled Toronto Mayor showed up to the game wearing a Fred Jackson Jersey…with crack all over it.

Although CJ Spiller continues to limp around, his speed is noticeably back and with it so is his Fantasy value.

Notes

Although the 49ers now have 3 usable WR’s, none are every week Fantasy starters.

The loss of Joe Staley could be catastrophic for the 49ers especially in the running game.

The Rams fake punt attempt was one of the worst plays I have ever seen in professional football.

Everytime I watch Zac Stacy I like him more. He’ll be a very high end RB2 the rest of the way.

Notes

Dwayne Bowe had a 13 yard TD reception called back due to an illegal procedure penalty.

The Broncos WR’s are valuable but it’s difficult relying on them in the Playoffs because of inconsistency.

The Chiefs Defense is in big trouble due to injuries. They have gone from “avoid” to “must start against”

Google the video of Knowshon Moreno’s tears during the National Anthem today. Absolutely freakish!

A.J. Green 21 yard TD reception

Notes

This is Keenan Allen’s fifth 100+ receiving yard performance of the season.

The Chargers only made it to the red zone once in this game and Keenan Allen fumbled to end the drive.

As good as LaDarius Green has been he cannot be started unless Antonio Gates is inactive for a game.

Another reason why you don’t win titles with players like Danny Woodhead. He is just too inconsistent.

Notes

It’s odd that both RB’s in this game had great matchups, put up decent numbers but ran for no yardage.

Does anybody realize that Hakeem Nicks has ZERO TD’s this year? He really shouldn’t even be on rosters.

Jordan Reed was a surprise inactive today. He suffered a pregame headache that caused him to be inactive.

RGIII checked down a lot today. He appeared to just complete passes and not really move the offense.
