The Browns DST appeared destined to rack up major points at New England on Sunday. Then came this little detail called the second half.
The unit had the Patriots shut out with an interception before intermission, but Tom Brady broke loose as he tends to do in the second half. The result was that the Browns added no turnovers and gave up 27 points and 397 yards for the game. They did manage four sacks.
Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle failed to make much of an impact as he was held under 30 receiving yards for the second consecutive game during Sunday's loss to the Chargers in Week 14.
Randle was limited to just one catch for 9 yards in the first half and caught just one pass in the second half, and 18-yard grab for his longest gain of the day. He finished the game with two catches for 27 yards on four targets in a 37-14 defeat.
Randle has racked up 148 yards over his last four games. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Seahawks.
Vikings surrender game-winning score with 4 seconds left

The Vikings and Ravens were mired in quite the defensive battle Week 14, as both teams tried to get their footing amid heavy snowfall. But the end of the game turned into quite an entertaining back-and-forth affair, as there was five lead changes in the final 2:05.
The Vikings held Baltimore to one touchdown through three quarters, and Baltimore held Minnesota to two field goals in three quarters. Minnesota didn't get its first touchdown until early in the fourth quarter, and Baltimore didn't get its second touchdown until there was 2:05 remaining on a 1-yard catch from Dennis Pitta.
The Vikings then reclaimed the lead at 19-15 after Toby Gerhart scored on a 41-yard touchdown run with 1:27 left. Immediately after Gerhart's touchdown, Jacoby Jones returned the ensuing kickoff 77 yards for a touchdown, putting Baltimore ahead 22-19.
The fun didn't stop there. Cordarrelle Patterson put Minnesota back ahead 26-22 with 45 seconds remaining after taking a reception 79 yards for a touchdown. The Vikings defense needed to make just one more stand to come away with the win, but it could not. Marlon Brown tallied a 9-yard touchdown with 4 seconds remaining, as Baltimore secured a 29-26 win.
The Ravens finished with 325 yards, including 97 rushing. The Vikings picked off three passes and had two sacks. Minnesota's next opponent is Philadelphia in Week 15.
Cardinals RB Andre Ellington scored in his return Week 14.
Ellington missed Week 13 due to a knee injury, but was effective in his return. Ellington carried the ball 11 times for 46 yards. He also scored a late 6 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Ellington again showed more big-play ability than Rashard Mendenhall, but Mendenhall continues to get more carries. Ellington averaged 4.2 yards per carry against Mendenhalls' 2.4 yards per carry. Ellington also caught two passes for 17 yards. He'll take on the Titans Week 15.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer continued his hot streak Week 14 against the Rams.
Palmer only tossed one touchdown, but overall had a strong game. He completed 27 of his 32 attempts for 269 yards. Palmer did not throw an interception. Palmer actually almost had a second score, but it was overturned by the refs. Palmer hit Jim Dray on what looked to be a touchdown, but it was ruled Dray never broke the plane. Dray fumbled on the play, and it was ruled to be the Rams ball.
Palmer will look to continue his hot streak Week 15 against the Titans.
The Rams DST had a tough time stopping the Cardinals Week 14.
St. Louis' offense did do them any favors. Kellen Clemens threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, and the team allowed a safety. Even after taking out those plays, the team still allowed three offensive touchdowns. St. Louis also had a tough time rushing the passer, picking up just one sack.
They'll look to bounce back Week 15 against the Saints.
On a snowy day in Green Bay, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was nowhere to be found in the first half of Week 14, going without a target. He was more involved in the passing game in the second half, getting seven targets, but he caught only two of them for 20 yards.
On at least one play, the elements seem to get to him. He had a perfectly thrown pass that would have put the Falcons in position for a game-winning field goal bounce off his hands late in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Matt Ryan threw an interception on the very next play, sealing the team's fate.
Douglas' seven targets were second-most on the team, but there also his fewest in five games. He'll look to bounce back Week 15 against the Redskins.
Patriots placekicker Stephen Gostkowski was perfect Sunday against Cleveland. He booted field goals of 33 and 50 yards in the second half and nailed his only extra-point try in the come-from-behind victory.
