With two weeks left in the season, the NFC East, NFC West and AFC North titles are still up for grabs, not to mention the four Wild Card spots.
The madness continued in Week 14. The Chargers bombed the Steelers in Pittsburgh, the Falcons get Cam’ed in Carolina, the Pats flexed their muscles against Houston and the 9-4 Ravens fired their offensive coordinator after blowing a game in D.C.
These three are notable players already, and RGIII is on the cusp of greatness. By this time next year, they may be challenging Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady for the top three spots among quarterbacks in the NFL.
Lessons learned in Week 7 will take on even greater significance now as the Giants will try to put a stop to RGIII.
Mark Sanchez’s reunion with Pete Carroll became another performance he would rather forget. And it left Rex Ryan again defending his decision about who the Jets’ quarterback should be in what has become a lost season in New York.

Roger Goodell was hired to steward the league through difficult waters and he is doing just the opposite. The NFL ship is hitting the rocks hard and taking on water. They need to bring back the regular officials right now.
Rookie quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have what it takes to succeed in the NFL.
The hits keep coming for Mark Sanchez. The latest knock came from one of Sanchez’s favorite former targets, current Seahawks wide receiver Braylon Edwards.
In the past, it wouldn’t take much to get a battle started. An upstart player would play impressively in training camp while a veteran would report out of shape.Today’s players condition all year long and get familiar with the team’s plays and gameplan at mini-camp and OTAs. However, there are still a number of battles around the NFL that are worth watching.
