NFL Players Who Delivered in Week 13
With the glare of the Monday Night Football lights upon him, the rookie ran for 130 yards on 21 carries, caught two passes for 52 yards and scored twice. He tied a rookie team record with his eighth touchdown of the season.
Williams is developing a knack for playing in prime time. He had a season-high three sacks in Houston's win over Jacksonville on Monday. In a prime-time matchup against Denver last year, he had 3.5 sacks.
The second-year man whom many consider to be the best runner in football, had 100 yards at intermission and finished with 131 in Minnesota's 34-14 victory over Chicago.
One play after the Vikings had stopped the Bears on a goalline stand, Berrian tied an NFL record with a 99-yard touchdown reception. He finished the day with 122 yards, his seventh career 100-yard receiving outing.
Allen's three sacks improved his season total to 11, making this the third time in his career that he's had at least 10 in a season. He also had an assist in a big fourth down stop by the Vikings.
The league's fifth-leading rusher upped his total to 1,012 yards after gaining 96 on 22 carries against the Vikings. He also had four catches for 22 yards and his fourth scoring reception.
Just when so many were ready to count the Broncos out, Cutler completed 27 of 43 passes for 357 yards and two touchdowns in a road win at the Jets.
Hillis averaged 5.9 yards a carry in his first 100-yard rushing game and scored a touchdown for the third consecutive game. He's the first back all season to gain 100 yards on the Jets.
Jones is beginning to be Mr. Reliable for the Jets. He had 138 yards rushing and two touchdowns in the losing effort against the Broncos, marking the sixth consecutive game that he's run for a touchdown.
With rookie backfield mate Jonathan Stewart sidelined by an injury in the second quarter, Williams "had to carry more of the load," as coach John Fox put it. Williams delivered in fine fashion, setting a team record with four touchdown carries. That brought his totals to 10 scores in the last six games.
The Packers may have seen their playoff hopes go up in smoke, but at least they're confident in their future at quarterback. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes for the third time this season and came two yards shy of the 300-yard mark.
The first-round pick from Delaware threw two more touchdown passes, giving him 11 in his past seven games, with only two interceptions.
Not only did Clayton have five catches for 164 yards and a touchdown on an amazing one-handed catch, but also he threw for a touchdown in the Ravens 34-3 victory.
If the Eagles have any hope of upsetting the Giants this Sunday, they'll need another yoeman's effort from Westbrook, who ran for two touchdowns and had two scoring receptions in last week's win over Arizona. Irving Fryan was the last Philadelphia player to score four touchdowns in a game.
A week after getting benched, McNabb bounced back with a 27-of-39, 260-yard passing performance in the 48-20 demolition of the Cardinals.
Fitzgerald had his second two-touchdown game and finished with five receptions for 65 yards. He's fifth in the league in receiving yards, with 1,075.
For the first time in 14 years, the Cowboys scored touchdowns on three consecutive drives as Romo completed 22 of 33 passes for 331 yards in the win over Seattle. He finished the first two drives with TD passes and later added a third one.
Witten had a season-high nine receptions and 115 yards as he continued to show improvement from a broken rib.
The Titans enjoyed a Thanksgiving Day feast on and off the field, with Johnson running for two touchdowns and 125 yards in the easy win over the Lions.
A week after suffering their first loss of the season, LenDale White and the Titans got back on track witih a 47-10 victory over winless Detroit. White scored from six and two yards out en route to finishing with 106 rushing yards.<br><br>Send comments to email@example.com
