Chargers wideout Keenan Allen caught six passes for a game-high 104 yards in the Week 12 win over the Rams, his second 100-yard game this season. Allen scored his second touchdown this season when he took a slip screen 29 yards in the fourth quarter.
Allen drew a team-high nine targets and has 33 catches over the last five games. He'll visit the Ravens in Week 13.
Texans kicker Randy Bullock made two field goals and one extra point during a 22-13 loss Week 12 vs. Cincinnati. Bullock made a 36-yard field goal in the second quarter and a 25-yarder in the third quarter.
Bullock finished with less than 10 points for just the second time in five games Sunday. The Texans are back in action Week 13 vs. Tennessee.
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer and star wide receiver Josh Gordon weren't entirely in sync in the latter's return from a 10-game suspension Week 12 at Atlanta, as evidenced by Hoyer's two interceptions late in the fourth quarter -- both on passes that sailed well beyond Gordon's reach. But even so, Gordon put up big numbers in his season debut, leading the Browns with eight catches for 120 yards.
Though the Browns initially said he'd play only 20-30 snaps, Gordon was consistently on the field, getting twice as many targets (16) as any other Browns player. And though his longest catch went for only 24 yards, he was targeted on several deep balls that, perhaps with a better rapport with Hoyer, could have resulted in big gains.
In other words, if you've stashed Gordon, the NFL's leading receiver last year, all this time, give yourself a pat on the back. He looks like he'll be a stud down the stretch and should have even bigger games than this one in store.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 29 of 35 passes (83 percent) for 291 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams. Rivers threw a 99-yard pick-six to corner Janoris Jenkins in the second quarter, but made few mistakes after that.
With just over eight minutes left in the game, Rivers hit wideout Keenan Allen on a slip screen that turned into a 29-yard touchdown. Despite the solid performance, Rivers has accounted for two scores and five turnovers in his last three games.
Eagles running back Darren Sproles found the end zone during Sunday's 43-24 victory over Tennessee in Week 12.
Sproles ripped a 4-yard run in the opening period for his fifth rushing touchdown of the season. he carried the ball six times for 25 yards. He also caught three of four targets for 14 yards. He has 282 rushing yards and 294 receiving yards on the year.
Philadelphia will square off against Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.
Chargers running back Ryan Mathews ran 12 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win over the Rams, his first 100-yard effort this season. Mathews suffered a left shoulder injury when he ripped off a career-best 32-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, but he was able to return.
Mathews caught two passes for eight yards. He'll visit the Ravens in Week 13.
Billy Cundiff totals four FGs, including game-winner Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
Browns kicker Billy Cundiff booted a 37-yard field goal as time expired Sunday, lifting Cleveland to a 26-24 win Week 12 at Atlanta.
The game-winner was Cundiff's fourth made field goal. He had field goals of 33 and 37 yards in the second quarter, and a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter. Cundiff did miss a 60-yard field goal at the end of the first half.
He had two extra points Sunday and finished with a season-best 14 points. He has managed 10 or more points in three of his last five games.
Unlike Week 11 against Houston, Isaiah Crowell didn't lead the Browns in carries Week 12 at Atlanta, but he was once again the more effective of the two rookie running backs, picking up 88 yards on 12 carries. He also scored two touchdowns, the most impressive coming on a 26-yard run late in the third quarter in which he probably ran more horizontally than vertically, taking the ball past the left hash mark before cutting all the way back to the right sideline.
By comparison, Terrance West had 62 yards on 14 carries and was the only one of the two to catch a pass -- a 9-yarder. It wasn't a bad performance by any means, but West hasn't done anything to distinguish himself in the two games with Ben Tate out of the running.
True, Week 12 was the Browns' first game with Tate completely off the roster, so they're still feeling out their backfield. But while Crowell and West will probably continue to split carries going forward, Crowell is looking like the one to own in Fantasy. Chances are even with an even distribution of carries, they won't both contribute relevant numbers each week.
