10 Things You Need to Know from Week 12

by • November 26, 2018

Welcome to Monday morning. Before you get into the swing of the work week, check out what you might have missed from Week Twelve. Here’s what you need to know from the Sunday games this week.

Ravens Repeat

Last week, Ravens rookies Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards each ran for over 100 yards as Baltimore won Jackson’s starting debut. This week, they won again as Edwards earned the start while RB Alex Collins was a surprise last scratch. Edwards finished with 118 yards while Jackson “only” rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown, along with his 178 passing yards and a score. With veteran Joe Flacco expected to be healthy soon, HC John Harbaugh has a difficult decision to make this week.

CMC 100/100

For just the third time this decade, a player had over 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game. Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey joined Todd Gurley and Arian Foster as players to accomplish the feat since 2010 as McCaffrey rushed for 125 yards and caught seven passes for 112 yards, scoring two touchdowns along the way.

Browns Revenge

Facing the Bengals and former HC Hue Jackson, the Browns offense dominated this game. Rookie QB Baker Mayfield set a new career-high with four touchdown passes along with 258 passing yards. Rookie RB Nick Chubb totaled 128 yards from scrimmage and two scores. Both rookies are players Jackson was hesitant to use early in the season, which likely was one factor which led to his dismissal.

Dalton Bum Thumb

It was a terrible day for the Bengals, who were already playing without WR AJ Green. After a bad snap flew over the head of QB Andy Dalton, not only did the Browns recover the ball but Dalton suffered a thumb injury that forced him from the game. He’ll undergo further tests and will reportedly see a specialist this week. That’s bad news for Cincy, who might have to start QB Jeff Driskel next week.

Gronk Smash Returns

The Patriots had TE Rob Gronkowski back on the field and he found the end zone for the first time since Week One. Gronk caught three of seven targets for 56 yards and the score. Hopefully over the ankle and back injuries that kept him out of the lineup since Week Eight, Gronkowski retains his role as an every-week top-five play at his position.

Eagles Find an RB

A pre-game report suggested the Eagles would use undrafted rookie RB Josh Adams as their workhorse back in this game against division rival Giants. That made sense given the subpar play of RBs Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood this season but Adams entered the game with career-highs of nine carries for 61 yards and scored his first career touchdown last week. Adams carried the ball 22 times for 84 yards and a touchdown and could’ve had much more as a 52-yard touchdown run by Adams was called back by a holding penalty.

Rivers (Almost) Perfect

Chargers QB Philip Rivers began the game by completing his first 25 pass attempts, breaking the record held by former Jaguars QB Mark Brunell. By the time he was pulled due to a monster lead, the veteran quarterback had connected on 28 of his 29 pass attempts for 259 yards and three touchdowns.

Gordon Suffers Injury

Even in a blowout victory, it wasn’t all good news for the Chargers. RB Melvin Gordon, who was questionable to play in this game with knee and hamstring injuries, took a hard hit to his knee. That ended his day and it was later revealed Gordon had suffered an MCL injury. Gordon will undergo further tests but looks like a long shot to play next week against the Steelers.

Luck and Ebron TD Connection

Colts QB Andrew Luck threw three touchdowns for the eighth straight game, which ties him for the second-longest streak of all time. Tom Brady (2007) has the record with ten straight games. Not only did Luck’s touchdown streak continue but TE Eric Ebron kept up his amazing scoring pace, catching two from Luck after not even being targeted last week. Ebron now has 12 total touchdowns on the season, which matches his touchdown total during his four years with the Lions.

QBs Back in Action

Two teams got their starting quarterbacks on the field for the first time in weeks. Buffalo rookie QB Josh Allen returned from an elbow injury, having not played since Week Six. Allen had a huge fantasy performance, thanks in large part to his 99 rushing yards and a touchdown. Pending Monday Night Football, Allen is the QB2 for the week. AFC East foe Miami also had QB Ryan Tannehill back on the field for the first time since Week Five and he nearly pulled off the upset against the Colts. The Titans are expected to start QB Marcus Mariota tonight against the Texans after he left last week’s game with a neck injury.
