NFL Props & Flops Week 15
Probably some of the wildest weeks in the National Football League of the 2010 season, but Week 15 brought some big triumphs, and even bigger letdowns. We will go through the best and worst once again, in Props & Flops.
3. Dan Connolly- The right guard for the New England Patriots set the NFL record for longest return by a NFL lineman in league history. 71 yards. It was as amazing as it was funny, and he nearly made it to the endzone. For those that missed it (or want to see it again), here it is:
2. Indianapolis Colts & New York Jets- Both teams needed a win, desperately, and they got it and now have the inside track and control their own playoff paths. The Colts have taken the tie-breaker from the Jacksonville Jaguars, who put up a great effort, but could not pull it off. Indianapolis can with the next two games, and win their 7th AFC South title in the past eight seasons.
As for the Jets, they were on an offensive drought, and coming off two terrible division losses to the Patriots and Dolphins. However, going into the Steel City, a place where they were 0-7 (0-11 in the state of Pennsylvania), Rex Ryan and company pulled out a hard-fought, 22-17 win. The Jets now have the inside track (along with the Baltimore Ravens) and can clinch a wild card with a win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
1. Philadelphia Eagles- 28 points in seven minutes. Mike Vick led a furious comeback, keyed by his touchdown pass to Brent Celek. He has been the most valuable player to this team, and perhaps the league. The great story on Vick continues on. Amazing to see. And it was capped off with "The Miracle at the New Meadowlands".Continued on the next page
