Week 14 in the NFL gave some surprises as the Cowboys suffered just their second loss of the season to the same team that gave them their first loss – New York Giants. Also we saw some teams start their push to the playoffs and others fall further behind.
And of course the Cleveland Browns lost again. New Starting QB– Same Result.
So let us go through the winners and losers of the week in NFL.
Los Angeles Rams : How does a team that lost by 4 touchdowns be called a winner? When you get rid of one of the worst coaches in NFL history, you can call that a win.
Buccaneers Defense : Picking Drew Brees off 3 times and holding the Saints to 11 points in a division win is a very impressive performance. Tampa Bay is looking more and more like a playoff contender lately.
La’Veon Bell : In snowy, freezing conditions in Buffalo, Bell ran for 236 yards and gave the Steelers offense the boost it sorely needs in a win over the Bills.
Matt Moore : To tell the truth, I didn’t know he was still in the league. But Sunday, Moore came in for a injured Ryan Tannehill and drove the Dolphins to a late victory over the Cardinals. Moore will have to be at his best to keep the Dolphins in the wild card slot they are currently in.
The Officials: To say they have been bad this year is a understatement. In Detroit, a bunch of questionable penalties lead to a Lions victory over the Bears. Not to mention no penalty called for this next loser’s cheap play.
Harry Douglas : In one of the dirtiest plays I’ve seen in a while, Douglas tried to take out Chris Harris’s knee in the Titans-Broncos game. Luckily, Harris is okay and Douglas showed he truly is a worthless piece of crap.
Dax Prescott: Dax finally had a rookie performance with two Interceptions in a loss to the Giants. The worst part is , the calls for Romo might get loud if he has another game like he had in chilly New York sunday.
Player of the Week
Aaron Rodgers : On a hurt calf, he tore apart a Seahawks defense with 3 touchdowns and has the Packers thinking playoffs once again.
Dud of the Week
Russell Wilson : Man, oh man. 5 interceptions is bad. 5 interceptions against the Packers defense is really terrible. Something is off with Wilson and it could cost Seattle a trip to the playoffs.
