One big run highlights Sunday effort by Browns RB Crowell
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:49 pm ET) The Browns used rookie Isaiah Crowell as their lone featured back Sunday at Carolina and he did nothing spectacular aside from a 26-yard run over a huge role in the second quarter.

Crowell otherwise rushed for just 29 yards on 18 carries in finishing with 55 yards on 16 attempts. He was not targeted in the passing game.

He will try again when the Browns finish the regular season next Sunday against the host Ravens.


Dolphins WR Mike Wallace scores two touchdowns Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:47 pm ET) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace scored two touchdowns to help the Dolphins defeat the Vikings 37-35 Sunday.

The two touchdown catches from 16 and 7 yards was Wallace’s first multiple touchdown game as a Dolphin. Wallace now has 10 touchdowns on the season which he also accomplished in 2010. Wallace was targeted five times and caught all five passes for 58 yards.

The Dolphins host the Jets in Week 17.


Panthers back Stewart runs wild again in Week 16 win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:44 pm ET) Panthers featured back Jonathan Stewart continued to sizzle Sunday in the absence of injured backfield mate DeAngelo Williams. He keyed a defeat of the Browns.

Stewart not only caught a 9-yard touchdown pass five minutes into the second half, but he rushed for a game-high 122 yards on a season-high 24 carries. His twisting, turning 30 yard rush in which he faked out several defenders allowed his team to go into victory formation.

He has 437 yards on 78 carries for a 5.6 YPC average over the last four games. He will try to maintain his momentum when the Panthers play at Atlanta in Week 17.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers sits out final drive with injured calf
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:43 pm ET) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 318 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's 20-3 win over Tampa Bay Sunday, but was not on the field for the team's final drive while dealing with a calf injury. With the game well out of hand, backup Matt Flynn went in to take the final three kneel downs to give Green Bay the win. 

Rodgers downplayed the injury after the game.

"I'll be okay for next week. [I] hurt my calf pretty good... Battled the flu the last few days," Rodgers said. 

Rodgers threw his first touchdown pass in seven quarters late in the fourth when he found Jordy Nelson from 1-yard out for the score. 

Rodgers and the Packers will look to clinch the division in Week 17 against the Lions. 


Long run doesn't change things for Colin Kaepernick
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:39 pm ET) Colin Kaepernick had another poor passing performance Week 16 against San Diego, throwing for a season-low 114 yards with one touchdown pass. But because he ran for 151 yards, most of which came on a 90-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, he ended up having a standout performance in Fantasy.

But when's the last time you saw a 90-yard run for a quarterback? It doesn't happen every week. Even as athletic as Kaepernick is, his season long was only 23 yards prior to Week 16. That 90-yard touchdown run was a 15-point play in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which means it was responsible for more than half of Kaepernick's 29 Fantasy points. Take it away, and his performance in Week 16 was just as disappointing as in his previous eight games.

Kaepernick hasn't thrown for multiple scores in nine games, averaging 189.9 passing yards during that stretch, and he's averaging just 137.5 passing yards in his last four games. Don't let this performance change your approach to him in the season's final week, when the 49ers visit the Cardinals.


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill has career day vs. Vikings
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:38 pm ET) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had the best game of his career to help lead the Dolphins to a 37-35 win over the Vikings Sunday.

Tannehill completed 35 of his 47 pass attempts to go along with a career-high four touchdowns and 396 passing yards. After not posting a 300-yard passing game all season, Tannehill has now thrown for more than 3000 yards in two consecutive games. 

If Tannehill can throw for 215 yards in the season finale, it will mark the first time in his career he surpassed 4,000 passing yards in a season.

The Dolphins host the Jets in the final game of the season.


Panthers QB Newton rises to occasion in Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:36 pm ET) Coming off a back injury sustained in a car accident, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton played well in the clutch to lead his team to a critical victory Sunday against the Browns.

Newton led a 66-yard touchdown drive to provide the go-ahead score, completing the job on a 9-yarder to running back Jonathan Stewart, then fired a perfect 37-yard strike to tight end Ed Dickson to clinch it. Newton completed 6 of 7 for 100 yards in the fourth quarter and finished 18 of 31 for 201 yards.

He also rushed for 63 yards on 12 attempts, including a 2-yard scramble for a touchdown off play-action late in the second quarter. His lone major mistake was a terrible decision and flutter ball that resulted in a third quarter interception.

Newton will conclude the season next Sunday at Atlanta.


Same old, same old for Browns QB Hoyer on Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) In a hot-and-cold performance that has mirrored his season and motivated the Browns to remove him as their starting quarterback, Brian Hoyer did little in relief of injured Johnny Manziel on Sunday at Carolina.

Hoyer completed 7 of 13 for 134 yards, one touchdown and one interception. But most of that territory was gained on an 81-yard scoring strike to outrageously open tight end Jordan Cameron five minutes into the fourth quarter. Hoyer did lead him perfectly.

He also underthrew Travis Benjamin on his next pass and was picked off. If Manziel remains sidelined, Hoyer will likely get the start in the season finale next Sunday in Baltimore.


Bears QB Jimmy Clausen fades after strong effort Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen performed well for much of his 2014 starting debut Sunday against Detroit, but faded down the stretch in yet another loss.

Clausen completed just one pass for one yard in the first two possessions, but picked it up in the second quarter and finished the half 14 of 23 for 106 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to featured back Matt Forte. He added a 20-yard scoring strike to Alshon Jeffery in the third, but hit on just 4 of 10 for 25 yards and a critical interception in a fourth quarter that doomed his team to defeat. He finished 23 of 39 for 181 yards.

If Clausen is given the starting nod in Week 17, as expected, he will do so in a meaningless game at Minnesota.


X-rays come back negative for Jets C Nick Mangold
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Jets center Nick Mangold underwent X-rays on his injured ankle, which came back negative, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Mangold is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury.

The Jets will finish the season against Miami.
