NFL Week 15 Recap – AFC v NFC

December 17th 2012 11:37
NFL Week 15 Recap – AFC v NFC

The following is a recap of games played between AFC and NFC teams

Washington Redskins 38, Cleveland Browns 21

Hopefully the resounding win will show fans and media that Washington isn’t all RGIII. Kirk Cousins is among many well-chosen rookies that have contributed mightily to a team that has had many struggles on the field the last several years. He tossed 2 TDs, 329 yards and posted a rating of 104.4 showing that this team is deep and talented in many ways. Washington has two tough division matchups against the Eagles then the Cowboys, so if they make it to the playoffs, they will have certainly earned it.

Seattle Seahawks 50, Buffalo Bills 17

Another week, another 50 point output by the surging Seattle Seahawks. This time it was three running touchdowns by rookie Russell Wilson that keyed the win along with 92 yards on the ground, 205 in the air and a touchdown. Marshawn Lynch also found it easy to run on the Bills as he turned in 113 yards and a touchdown on only 10 carries.

Carolina Panthers 31, San Diego Chargers 7

Well Carolina seems to be peaking at the wrong time for this season, but they will be hoping they can carry some momentum into next season. They soundly beat a San Diego team in transitional disarray. High-paid RB DeAngelo Williams finally made his presence felt with a 93 yard rushing, 51 yard received (plus a TD) effort that spurred the solid performance by the Carolina offense. The Chargers had home field advantage but surprisingly never really showed up for this one. Greg Hardy and Charles Johnson helped defensively with two sacks apiece.

Dallas Cowboys 27, Pittsburgh Steelers 24

Dez Bryant showed a lot a grit in his performance against the Steelers and made up a little ground on his diva persona. It was a shootout between Tony Romo and Ben Roethlisberger as each had over 330 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. Dallas tied the score at 24-24 midway through the 4th quarter and neither team could pull ahead for the win. Pittsburgh got first possession in OT but Big Ben was intercepted by Brandon Carr on the second play deep in Pittsburgh territory and took it back 36 yards that enabled Dan Bailey to kick a 21 yard field goal through for a great win in front of the home crowd.

San Francisco 49ers 41, New England Patriots 34

Well, I was wrong, the Patriots weren’t able to figure out how to stop the Niners offense and was stopped up themselves by their defense until late in the third quarter. Tom Brady led the strong comeback, tying 31-31 midway through the 4th. But the 49ers put in another TD for the lead and held off New England. Tom Brady went for 443 in the comeback effort, but 2 picks were too damaging to the cause.
