The Philadelphia Eagles are going to win the Super Bowl this year, and they’re going to have a new franchise quarterback.
It’s a fitting ending for a team that made it through a rough stretch without a winning record for most of the year.
And while the quarterback controversy is no doubt going to loom large in the final days of the regular season, this was a good week to recognize a few players who have stood out from the rest of the league.
Michael Vick, QB, Eagles Vick made history this week with his second consecutive start.
The Eagles’ first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Georgia went 4-for-5 for 145 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
He’s the first quarterback since John Elway in Denver in 1999 to pass for 4,000 yards and get two interceptions.
Vernon Davis, DE, Cowboys The Cowboys have been in the midst of a rebuilding process for a couple of years now, but this season they’ve been much better than expected.
They finished 5-7 and lost two games by double digits to the Denver Broncos, and while this week wasn’t exactly a perfect one for the Cowboys, they also came out of the bye and won a big game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins In the third quarter of a blowout victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Reed caught a pass for a score and then ran it back for a touchdown.
It was a huge moment for Reed and a great way to show what he can do. 4.
Eric Kendricks, RB, Browns The Browns are still looking for their first win of the season and they got it in front of a sellout crowd of 13,547 at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Kendricks rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown in a 21-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Derek Carr, QB and Raiders Carr is still looking to win his first playoff game since he threw for 471 yards and three touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round.
Carr has thrown for 2,764 yards and 17 touchdowns in the playoffs, which is a career high for a starting quarterback.
Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys Bryant had a career-high seven catches for 96 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys’ 37-20 win over Cleveland.
Bryant has had a great postseason, but it was his first win since Week 17.
Eric Ebron, TE and Lions The Lions got back to where they belong with a 28-13 win over Minnesota, but they also got to celebrate with a lot of fans in a postgame ceremony.
The players and coaches gave the crowd a huge ovation and gave out a huge diamond ring to a couple who gave their lives to help the victims of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting.
DeMarco Murray, RB and Raiders Murray had his first 100-yard rushing game of the postseason, with 101 yards on 14 carries.
He finished with seven carries for 37 yards.
Ryan Mathews, RB/WR, Eagles The Eagles were one of the most exciting teams in the NFL during the preseason and the Eagles came out with a vengeance in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.
They came out and played a lot faster and threw the ball a lot better than the Cowboys.
Tamba Hali, TE/WR and Jaguars The Jaguars made it a point to keep Tamba going this offseason, and he continued to show why.
He made two huge plays on a touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson and caught a touchdown from Blake Bortles.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR and Bengals Hopkins had a good game for the Bengals on Thursday night, but he also had some very impressive plays, like this one in which he took a pass from Andrew Luck and was able to break up a pass intended for Josh Doctson.
Jordan Matthews, TE & WR, Titans Matthews made a big play in the Titans’ 28-20 victory over Washington.
He was in position to make a play on the ball when he was able with a diving catch on a tipped pass from Kirk Cousins.
Corey Davis, WR & TE, Bengals Davis had his best game of his career on Thursday against the Redskins.
He had a big night, too.
He caught a big touchdown pass from Jordan Reed and had another big play when he had a catch on the end zone.
Dontrelle Inman, RB & TE & TE Dontrellle Inam had a strong night for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night.
Inam caught a 16-yard touchdown pass and he had another huge game in the second half.
Antonio Brown, WR (2) & TE (3) & WR (4) & RB & RB (5) & QB (6) & OG (7) & OL (8) & LT (9) & C & OG & WR & WR& QB& WR& WR (10) & DE& OG
