Our Week 12 Sunday was pretty crazy in the NFL, and Week 13 is sure to bring plenty more action. Let’s start looking ahead and check out some of the notable players and stats out there in the headlines.
Patriots-Broncos Wrap-Up: The Broncos shocked the previously undefeated Patriots on “Sunday Night Football,” snatching a 30-24 overtime victory in Denver.
C.J. Anderson rumbled for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 15 attempts, including the game-winning scamper in overtime, which went for a 48-yard TD.
The Broncos move to 9-2 with the win, and Brock Osweiler has kept the team rolling after Peyton Manning’s injury.
The Patriots, meanwhile, fall to 10-1 and lose another receiver to injury. Rob Gronkowski went down with a knee injury late in the fourth and had to be carted off.

The Jets got back into the AFC Wild Card race with a big win over their rival Dolphins yesterday. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 277 yards and four touchdowns, with most of his attention going to Brandon Marshall. He had nine grabs for 131 yards and two scores.
New York moves to 6-5 on the year, putting them in the mix of a crowded AFC playoff picture.
The Colts also moved to 6-5 yesterday, thanks to a victory over the Buccaneers 25-12. Matt Hasselbeck threw for 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Donte Moncrief had eight receptions for 114 yards.
Indianapolis has some injury issues at RB. Ahmad Bradshaw left the game, and Frank Gore (19 rushes; 24 yards) simply doesn’t look healthy. We’ll see what happens in practice this week.
Houston is rolling right now. They posted an impressive victory yesterday over the Saints, 24-6. Brian Hoyer threw for 205 yards and two touchdowns; Alfred Blue held things down on the ground with 16 attempts for 77 yards and a score.
That brings the Texans to 6-5 on the season and are duking it out with the Colts for first place in the division; New Orleans falls to 4-7 overall.
The Vikings got a big 20-10 win over the slumping Falcons yesterday. Adrian Peterson posted 158 yards and a couple of touchdowns to continue his resurgent season, and Matt Ryan tossed two more interceptions on the other side.
Minnesota moves to 8-3, while the Falcons fall to 6-5. They’ve lost four straight and five of the last six.
