As we get to the home stretch of the NFL season I'm not sure what is more surprising, no one wants to win the NFC East or that the Seattle Seahawks could actually make the playoffs.
Drew Brees, QB New Orleans: Do I really need to explain this one? Brees was 32 of 40 for 412 yards and five TDs in just a little over three quarters. We may need to start adding Brees to the MVP discussion.
Matt Ryan, QB Atlanta: Did the real Matty Ice really stand up? Ryan threw for 224 yards and three TDs while taking the 4th quarter off in a rout of Jacksonville.
Tony Romo, QB Dallas: Romo looks good in December so far with 3 TDs passes and another on the ground as the Cowboys took over first place in the NFC East.
Reggie Bush, RB Miami: Bush got the luxury of playing a rundown Bills defense, but still showed why he can be a successful back in the league with a career high 203 yards and score.
Red Bryant, DE Seattle: Anytime a 6-4, 323 lbs. dude gets an INT and rumbles back for a TD gets a game ball. Yes, it was only a 20 yard return, but DL running with the ball is fun to watch.
Indianapolis Colts: The Colts got in the win column with an impressive victory over the Titans who are fighting for a playoff spot. QB Dan Orlovsky threw three TDs, Jacob Lacey returned an INT for a score and Donald Brown ran for 161 yards and a TD.
Romeo Crennel, Interim Head Coach Kansas City: This will be the signature win in his career. He was an awful head coach in Cleveland and will be awful when he get the Chiefs job full-time, but Sunday was his day as KC upset Green Bay and ruined their perfect season.
Matthew Stafford, QB Detroit: Stafford looked like a playoff caliber QB with a 57 yard and 98 yard drive in the final 10 minutes for a 28-27 come from behind win on the road over Oakland. He finished with 391 yards and four TDs.
Chris Johnson, RB Tennessee: Looks how is back to coasting on his fat contact. Johnson ran for a whopping 55 yards on on 15 carries for a 3.7 yard average.
Ravens Defense: What happened to this defense? Philip Rivers and company made them look like a bad FCS defense. Totally out of character.
Chicago Bears: A sure fire playoff team is going down the drain without a QB. Maybe they should have claimed Kyle Orton or signed Donovan McNabb.
