    Luke Kuechly is having another monster game. He may become recognized as the premiere LB next year, just as Watt has established himself as the best DE in his second season. Though there's some other great White linebackers in the league these days.

    Welker with 7 catches and 76 yards, hopefully he can get a few more before the game is over and have a big week next week as well to get to the 120 mark. Right now he is tied with Chris Carter for most 120+ catch seasons at 2, would love to see Welker be up ther at 1 by himself with 3.

    Hillis 17 yards away from 100 yards! although it will be overshadowed by Charles 200 yard game nice to see him back to form, averaging 7.5 ypc on 11 carries, almost half of what Charles has gotten so far.

    Texans doing poor offensively, Foster with 15 yards on 10 carries. Could it possibly be because they blackened up the offensive line?

    The best linebacker in the NFL, James Laurinaitis, with 10 solo tackles and an interception so far!

    good to hear, seems like the Vikings were more concerned with getting Peterson the record, 25 carries 86 yards 0 tds.

    great to see Hillis with 100 yards, hopefully he can have another great day next week and a team gives him a real chance next year. He is at 3.9 ypc right now, hopefully he can raise it to 4 ypc by next week

    Watt with 20.5 sacks for the season, hopefully get can get closer to the record before the game ends. Regardless if he breaks it or not 20+ sacks for a 3-4 DE has to be a record.

    Welker with 110 receptions on the season, only player to have 5 110 reception seasons, I believe he was the only one to have 4 as well. That is going to be much harder to beat than the 5 100 reception seasons, I think with the targets Marshall gets he might have a shot. He needs 10 more receptions to have the most 120 reception seasons, depends on if the Patriots rest the players or not, 10 receptions is not unlikely for Welker, has had plenty of 10 reception games, not sure how many times back to back 10 reception games.

    The Jets are going to lose again - I wonder how everyone will blame Tebow for this one.

    Texans defense played well today, only allowing the Vikings a little over 300 yds total and so far giving Petersen only 25/86, but they've been let down by their offense. I don't think a Super Bowl is in the cards for the Texans unless they can improve their offensive execution.

    Of course part of the reason for their offensive struggles is Harrison Smith and the Vikes defense. Smith has had a monster game 7 solo stops, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed, 1 qb hit.

    JJ Watt had 1 sack and is now 2 away from tying the record.

    Damn I want Watt to get the record so bad. Boomer Esiason was saying in the pre game show that he wasn't sure if Watt should get the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Even the other caste announcers jumped all over him. What a joke of an announcer he is. Watt wins the award easy and hopefullly will break the sack record too! They held Peterson to 86 yards. That is incredible with him going for around 200 yards for 3 straight games. It was nice to see Gerhart get some late chances to run and he ended up with 8 rushes for 36 yards and a td. Even Christian Ponder had around 50 yards rushing but Watt is the story of this game for me.

    How about Nick foles? He had almost 350 yards passing and a td. He clearly outplayed RGIII and would have won if they didn't run out of time. He was about to tie the game and send it to overtime. They got down to the 5 yard line. His future is bright.

    The Jets deserve to lose every week and I can't wait to see Ryan fired! I hope he never coaches again! He makes me sick!

    Congrats to Peyton Hillis. Way to get it done man. It's been a tough year but you can still finish it with a bang.

    The Pats were lucky today as they continue to ignore Woodhead way too much. Ridley did have a good game but they should split the
    carries at the minimum. Welker was oh so close to 100 yards but he still played great.

    Time for Denver to continue their winning streak. They are the hottest team in the NFL! Let's go Broncos.

    Harrison Smith with seven tackles and a sack today. I'm not ready to argue that he's been the best rookie defender in the league, but he's had quite a year. 90 tackles, and 3 picks, 2 of which he's taken back for TDs. Kind of makes me want to troll the Vikings boards to remind some of them how stupid they were on draft day.

    The Crawfords lose at home to the Black Bengals. I believe that all but ends Pittsburgh's playoff hopes.

    98 tackles after today, the last 17 have been solo I believe, maybe one was assisted. There isn't much competition as far as droy, only Kuechly. Smith will go over 100 tackles, 11 pass deflections and 3 interceptions. The plays that don't really show up on the stat sheet is what gives him the slight edge, he has made up for the poor play for the Vikings corners.

    Witten breaking the single season reception record for a tight end with 103, previously held by Tony Gonzalez still with one game to go. With the way things are going it will be great to see Watt break the single season record as well.

    Jason Witten just broke the single season record for TEs with his 103rd reception. Tribesman announcer Kenny Albert politely noted it and there was a ripple of applause from the crowd.

    Congrats to Jason, an all-time great!!!

    you would think dwfs would start the question why so many Whites are breaking records or are very close to breaking records when there are so few compared to blacks, what is it, 30 percent of the league being White and does that include qbs as well?

    Eric Decker is the man. I love this kid. An athletic catch is right Don and he already has 33 yards receiving in the first quarter. Hopefully he will get to at least 100 yards receiving and a couple of tds on the way. I want to see him hit 1000 yards!


    Congrats to Jason Witten. The best tightend in the NFL for the last decade only recently surpassed by Gronkowski.

    I was also happy to see Tannehill have another nice game in a must win. I just wish him and Hartline would get on the same page more.

    It's been a good day overall.

    Most important was to see Andrew Luck break the NFL All Time Rookie Passing Record. Move over Cam. We have a real qb who will dominate for many years to come! The Colts go from a team that won 2 games last years to making the playoffs with Luck! Amazing!

    -Harrison Smith also had a forced fumble today that was recovered by the Vikings.

    -Evan Moore is now playing for the Eagles. He dropped a 2 yard pass in the end zone. The pass hit him right in the stomach, with 5 seconds left in the game.

    Decker 20 yards away from 1k. Hoping he can get closer to 1100 for the season. He has 5 targets today and 5 receptions. 10 tds now while DT has 9. I think its safe to say that they could wind up like a Harrison/Wayne duo.
