Lions DST continues to role
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:43 pm ET) For the sixth time in seven games, the Lions held a team to less than 20 points in Week 16, limiting the hosting Bears to 14 on 234 yards. They were a little light on big plays, recording two sacks and one interception after averaging 4.3 and 2.0 in their previous three games, but with Jimmy Clausen starting at quarterback for the Bears, they could get away with it.

According to standard CBSSports.com scoring, the Lions DST has scored double-digit Fantasy points in four straight games, only once allowing 300 yards during that stretch. Of course, they've all been pretty favorable matchups, which certainly won't be the case Week 17 at Green Bay. But considering the Lions DST scored 22 points against the Packers in Week 3, limiting them to seven points on 223 yards, it's not an automatic sit for that one.

Just weigh your options carefully. With a division title on the line, Aaron Rodgers and company are sure to bring their A game.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6:43 pm ET) Rams cornerback E.J. Gaines took a knee to the head from teammate T.J. McDonald in the third quarter of the game against the Giants. Gaines lost his helmet in the collision and had to be carted off the field.

The Rams announced Gaines was being evaluated for a concussion.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:41 pm ET) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh made the most of his four tackles Sunday in a win over Chicago. He had three quarterback hits, two sacks and a pass defensed. He has 8 1/2 sacks on the year, including four in the last three games combined.

Colston, Stills, Toon combine for 192 receiving yards in Week 16
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:40 pm ET) Saints wideouts Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and Nick Toon combined for 192 receiving yards in a losing effort Sunday against Atlanta.

Colston led the way with a team-high six catches on 10 targets for 80 yards. Stills finished as the team's second leading receiving, posting six catches for 68 yards on eight targets. Toon cracked the 40-yard mark again with three catches for 44 yards in a 30-14 defeat.

New Orleans will end their 2014 campaign against Tampa Bay in Week 17.


Ravens' Joe Flacco struggles mightily in loss to Texans
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:39 pm ET) Along with the rest of the offense, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had one of his worst games of the season during a 25-13 loss to the Texans Sunday.

"We got our [butt] kicked," Flacco said. "It's really simple."

The Ravens did not gain a first down until the third quarter and Flacco had a passer rating of zero at halftime. Flacco’s three interceptions were a season high and his first multiple interception game since the Week 8 loss to Cincinnati. He has not thrown multiple touchdowns without an interception in a game since Nov. 30.

Flacco completed 21 of his 50 pass attempts for 195 yards, but was able to throw two touchdowns to Torrey Smith in the second half.

The Ravens host the Browns Week 17.


Report: Bears DE Young diagnosed with torn Achilles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:37 pm ET) The preliminary diagnosis on Bears defensive end Willie Young is a torn Achilles tendon, a source has told Pro Football Talk.

He will undergo an MRI on Monday. He is certainly out of the season finale next Sunday and if it is a serious tear, it could affect his 2015 season as well.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:36 pm ET) Falcons receivers Roddy White and Harry Douglas combined for 102 receiving yards in Sunday's win over New Orleans in Week 16.

White came down with six of the nine passes thrown in his direction for 55 yards. Douglas was targeted seven times and finished with four catches for 47 yards in a 30-14 victory.

Atlanta will face Carolina in Week 17. The winner will advance to the playoffs.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:34 pm ET) Lions placekicker Matt Prater had a 37-yard field goal attempt blocked Sunday against Chicago, but was otherwise fine. He nailed a 39-yarder in the third quarter, added a 30-yarder in the fourth and hit two extra points through the uprights.

Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham nails two field goals in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:32 pm ET) Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham made both of his field goal attempts as well as both of his extra points in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City.

Both of Suisham's field goals were from 23 yards out. He is now 27 for 30 on field goal attempts this year.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
