The Jets are just one game out in the ACF East and in doable contention for a AFC Wild Card spot-in the event that they win this week. • The 45-3 destruction of the Jets final Monday night, in the a lot-ballyhooed showdown that swung the AFC East nearly irreversibly to New England's benefit. The Brown saga took a flip when a lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida by physical trainer Britney Taylor claimed that Brown sexually assaulted her on multiple events over the past three years, together with one "forcible" rape. Always wished to visit Amelia Island after we were in Florida however by no means quite had the time. I might maybe examine it to the first time that I saw Stephen King, or Jimmy Carter. Although the Pats are looking for their first playoff road win since 2006, it's only a two-game shedding streak. Meyers logged 25 a doable 69 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Browns, en route to catching certainly one of his two targets for five yards.The leader in the clubhouse is Isaiah Wynn, who missed his rookie season with a torn Achilles, however was impressive in the limited time he saw over the summer season earlier than the damage. He played towards a few of the softest defenses in the league, together with New England's at the time. Someone not named Eli had defenses continually wondering "How do you cease this guy?" You suppose that occurs if Barber degrades to even a 1,500-yard again? This is also big for brand spanking new England, as it was widely speculated that they'd eat up the running again pool by taking a again right here. Chris Carson is an elite running again. And outside of the damage, he didn't come again from obscurity the best way Brunell did, or from a close to-demise debilitating event like Bruschi. Honorable Mention: Gus Frerotte, Miami Dolphins -- Speaking of obscurity, Frerotte might be on his method again there. There's rather more. Bruschi got here again three-quarters of a yr earlier than anticipated and had a profound influence on the Patriots. Scorsese couldn't have solid a greater particular person to play the role of the league's libertine more appropriately than the one Bill Belichick portrays. This post was written with GSA Content Generator Demoversion!His passer ranking wasn't nice, however the Dolphins were most likely the Comeback Team of the yr, if there have been such a thing, and he played a significant role. 4. Carson Palmer, Cincinnati Bengals -- What this guy did on a group he did it with is nothing wanting commendable, however compared to Brady, Alexander and Barber, Palmer is a distant fourth. Among different things, he showed a propensity to win the big video games when they counted, and I'm talking concerning the Pittsburgh video games, which sealed the NFC North for the Bengals. His decide modified the tenor of the sport final week at house towards Cincinnati and allowed the Bengals to take a lead late in the fourth quarter. Indy confronted absolutely no adversity till week 16, however they had already lost to San Diego by that time. The stats: 1,880 yards speeding (9th all time), a document 28 touchdowns (27 speeding, 1 receiving), 11 100-yard video games, only 1 fumble lost. I do not. Oh, Barber also had just one fumble (Alexander had five, however lost just one -- Barber had one), and he also had this matter of 530 yards receiving, making him leader in most yards from scrimmage this season. Prorate his stats and he would have ended up with 110, two greater than Pats leader Mike Vrabel. This group was more prone to mistake after mistake, and yet they received a very aggressive division. I've been mentioning Alexander for most likely two-third of the season because the group and the participant to watch in the NFC. Bruschi has been sorely neglected yr after yr for the Pro Bowl and to only enable him a tie right here is yet one more insult to Bruschi and the whole group. Steve Smith, who tied Bruschi for this award, had an awesome yr after coming again from a knee damage. But let's face it, he got here again from a knee damage, which is removed from unusual, and it was practically a full yr earlier than he got here again.Note to voters: Tedy Bruschi got here again from a stroke. 1. Tedy Bruschi, New England Patriots -- Once again, I must take issue with the nationwide media, lots of whom do not appear know which finish of the pencil to use. New England now faces the Jacksonville Jaguars (12-4) in the Wild Card spherical on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. » The time allotted for each decide in Round 2 will probably be seven minutes. The second spherical starts instantly. Big Nickel, tough and versatile as it is, simply isn't enough, particularly given the damage standing on the second degree, which has left the linebacking corps missing substance as well. 2. Mark Brunell, Washington Redskins -- Raise your hand if you thought this damage prone quarterback was finished at least four or five years in the past. It's known as the "Giant Dime", and for the past four weeks in conjunction with a renewed emphasis on fundamentals, it has reworked the damage strapped New England Patriots' defense into the unit we were anticipating to see all alongside. Although it tickled even Bill Belichick, I feel he would still finally say simply that, "It is what it is," which was an extra level that kept New England inside placing distance at the top of the sport.
