Though he entered the day averaging 7.6 tackles in 12 games, Redskins linebacker Perry Riley wasn't a big contributor of those Week 14 against the Chiefs, recording just two, one solo. He did, however, contribute his first interception not just of the season, but of his career.
Drew Brees carves up Panthers for 313 yards, four touchdowns

The Panthers arrived in the Superdome with the league's top scoring defense, but they hardly bothered Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He completed 30 of 42 throws for 313 yards and four touchdowns, his fourth game this season with at least four scoring passes.
Brees became the fastest player in NFL history to surpass 50,000 passing yards and set an NFL record with his eighth straight 4,000-yard season. He notched his ninth 300-yard passing game this year. In his last 13 prime-time home games, Brees has thrown 43 touchdowns against four interceptions.
Brees threw two touchdowns apiece to receiver Marques Colston and tight end Jimmy Graham while not committing a turnover. It was an expected, but welcome bounceback after Brees was held to 147 passing yards at Seattle in Week 13.
Up to 34 touchdowns, Brees visits the Rams in Week 15.
49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald posted a sack in back-to-back games during Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks in Week 14.
McDonald took down Russell Wilson on a third down play in the opening quarter. The special teams unit blocked Seattle’s punt on the next play. He finished the game with four tackles (four solo) and one sack in a 19-17 victory.
Wide receivers Santana Moss and Josh Morgan both factored in the Redskins passing game Week 14 against the Chiefs. Moss caught three passes for 30 yards. Morgan caught one for 15.
Neither player has been a huge contributor on offense this season, but Moss has been the more consistent of the two, catching at least three passes five times this season. He was targeted six times in Week 14.
