Crowder does it again

If the Jets are going to win their second game, Jamison Crowder will be a big reason why. After throwing a TD pass earlier, Crowder extended New York’s lead with a TD catch.

Perine breaks a big one

Samaje Perine was at one point one of fantasy football‘s best-kept sleeper draft picks that never actually panned out. A few seasons later, and on a new team, Perine has found a niche with the Bengals. He showed off some of his tackle-breaking ability but also his breakaway speed.

Trubisky makes it look easy

Mitch Trubisky is making a super-late push to potentially be brought back by Chicago this offseason and his dual-threat ability is a big reason why. On this play, he rolled to his right and did the rest with his legs.

Watson escapes for a big one

Deshaun Watson is one of the most difficult quarterbacks to bring down in the backfield and on a play-action pass he found Brandin Cooks wide open in the back of the end zone after escaping a sack. Watson is the gift that keeps on giving to Texans fans no matter how poorly managed, or at times, coached, that franchise has been over the last few seasons.

Jets are at it again

Here come those pesky Jets again with a trick play that should get even those fans still bitter about last week’s win out of their seats. Jamison Crowder took the reverse and threw a perfect deep ball to Braxton Berrios who kept his feet inbounds and rolled in for the score.

Chark brings down an insane TD grab

D.J. Chark didn’t have the breakout season fantasy owners were predicting, but he did come up with one of the best catches of this slate and probably the last few. How did he get both feet in on this one?!

Taylor’s fourth in four games

Jonathan Taylor has been one of the best stories in the second half of the season. His emergence has helped the Colts establish their offensive identity. And he scored again in Week 16!

Here comes a snow game!

What’s better than late December football snow games in the NFL? Not much, we say, not much! And for the Green Bay Packers’ home game at Lambeau Field against the Tennessee Titans on ‘Sunday Night Football’ that will likely be the case. Snow is expected. And while the expectation currently is for it to snow prior to the game, there is also a chance for snow in game — specifically in the first half. As of now, the expectation is for about three inches of snow and maybe one or two inches to fall during the game. Maybe even more importantly, the expectation is for sustained winds in the 10-15 mph range with gusts in the 25-30 mph range. This could impact the passing game with freezing cold temperatures also coming into play.
