NFL Props & Flops Week 12
Another week in the books, and another week for Props & Flops in the NFL, so let's get right into it.
3. Jay Cutler- In a game where many expected Michael Vick to expose the Chicago Bears, and for the Philadelphia Eagles to make Jay Cutler's day not so great. But Cutler was poised and shined throughout the game, going 14-21 for 247 yards and four touchdowns. His play was crucial and it was key in the Bears claiming victory and legitimacy as a contender in the NFC.
2. Brian Westbrook- You never know when the number will be called upon, and the veteran running back answered the call when the San Francisco 49ers' best offensive player, Frank Gore, out to injury, Westbrook came in and had his first offensive game since 2008. With the 49ers one game out at 4-7, Westbrook is ready for the challenge to get this team to the playoffs.
1. Peyton Hillis- It appears that Peyton Hillis is made for Cleveland. Hard-working, blue-collar, and he ran over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Big day for the workhorse of the Browns, running for 131 yards on 26 carries. Give the Browns a healthy Colt McCoy, and it appears this team is on its way to turning its fortunes around.
3. Alphonso Smith- This poor guy was just exposed and picked on all game long by Tom Brady on Thanksgiving Day. Deion Branch ran circles around him and then beat him for his second touchdown of the game, sending the defensive back to the bench. Not a good way to look in front of a national audience.
2. Steve Johnson- You hate to put this guy in this section, simply because he felt so horrible after dropping the potential game winning pass in overtime that could have give the Buffalo Bills the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. But he dropped it, and the Bills ended up losing the game. But blaming the Lord on Twitter, frustration or not, was not the wise thing to do.
1. The NFC West- This whole division is pathetic. The first place team is 5-6, yet you have an 8-3 Wild Card team (Saints) that would have to play them on the road. Also the point differential is -247, which his the worst in the NFL. Makes one wonder what is worst to watch: The NFC West or Big East Football.
