10 Things We Learned From NFL Week 14

 

1. Wilson Is On Fire

Wilson has played better than anyone over the past month. He is the first player in NFL history to have four straight games with at least three passing touchdowns with no interceptions while completing 70% of his passes.

 

2. Panthers 13-0

The Panthers had a dominating win over the Falcons to continue their undefeated streak. They are only the 9th team in NFL history to go 13-0. Out of the previous seven that occurred in the Super Bowl era, five of them reached the big game, and three of them won it all.

 

3. Jags Still In It

The Jaguars put up 51 points in their victory against the Colts this week. With this win, they are now only one game back with a 5-8 record. Even though the AFC South is disappointing, it will be exciting to watch the Colts, Texans, and Jaguars compete for the top spot and a playoff birth.

 

4. Khalil Mack Is A BEAST

Khalil Mack could not be blocked in the Raiders’ game against the Broncos. He finished the game with five sacks, including one in the end zone for a safety. He gave the Raiders momentum to get back in the game and upset the Broncos 15-12.

 

5. Bad Day For The Bengals

The Bengals had two big losses on Sunday: the number-one seed and Andy Dalton. After throwing an interception, Dalton went to make the tackle and broke his thumb. The Bengals are hoping he will be able to return in the playoffs.

 

6. Atrocious Atlanta

 What happened to the 5-0 Falcons? They are now 6-7 after losing their past six games. Their 38-0 loss to the Panthers says everything you need to know about this team. I would love to see them play against some of the college teams, because I don’t think they would win. This team needs a serious roster shake-up in the off-season, and I think the coaching staff knows it.

 

7. Unlikely Week 14 Quarterbacks

Who would’ve thought at the beginning of the season that we’d see Matt Hasselbeck, Johnny Manziel, Jimmy Clausen, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blaine Gabbert, Brock Osweiler, and Matt Cassel all starting in the same week? We also got to see AJ McCarron play the majority of the game for the injured Dalton. It has been a crazy NFL season…

 

8. Rawls Is Out

Thomas Rawls has filled in nicely for the injured Marshawn Lynch, but he will be missing the rest of the season after breaking his ankle on Sunday. Rawls ran for 391 yards the previous three weeks to help the Seahawks maintain their playoff position.

 

9. Injuries Continue For Pats

Gronkowski returned for the Patriots this week, but they lost starting running back LaGarrette Blount. His injured hip will cause him to miss the rest of the season. It makes us wonder how much New England can lose before it really hurts them.

 

10. Locked-In MVP

After leading his team to a 13-0 record with basically no help at the wide receiver position, Cam Newton seems to be the obvious MVP this season. He ranks very low for passing percentage (28th), but his 35 total touchdowns are the most in the league. When you watch the Panthers play, you get the sense that he is carrying this team by himself, even though he is not the greatest passer.
