Life got in the way of last week's update, so we'll pepper in some Week 14 stuff today where we can.
9) Damontre Moore
Sometimes we feel the need to explain the context behind our embedded tweets, and sometimes we let them speak for themselves. This is the latter.
So.. Odell Beckham Jr got everyone in the locker room Beats by Dre, Cullen Jenkins took multiple pairs. Damontre Moore missed out. FIGHT.— Giants Daily (@NYGDaily) December 11, 2015

The story had a decent enough ending, I guess. But what an odd way to end his time in New York.

8) Mike Evans
Mike has had an up-and-down year, but he reached quite the milestone this week.
Only two players have produced two 1,000-yard receiving seasons before the age of 23: Randy Moss & Mike Evans. https://t.co/3XNqS9WvvG— Scott Smith (@ScottSBucs) December 21, 2015
7) Cody Wallace
Offensive Linemen are rarely in the spotlight for a good reason... and that trend continues today.
Here's the real-time clip of Cody Wallace's late hit.... ...SHEESH https://t.co/g1I5akhL8D— Complex Sports (@Complex_Sports) December 20, 2015
6) Randy Bullock
Raaaaandy sunk the Cowboys. Granted, sinking the Cowboys is less "accomplishment" and more "scheduled weekly event" this year. But still.

Kudos to Randy for rocking maroon after the game.
5) Christine Michael
The NFL is an odd place. Michael had been cut from two different squads, including Seattle, but this past weekend he finally received the chance he'd been waiting for all season.
There are rumblings that Michael finally appears to "get it" in regards to coachability, effort during the practice week, and time in the film room. Hopefully this trend continues.
4) Michael Bennett
Bennett made the Pro Bowl (more on this later), and then he did some Bennett things.
3) Ryan Tannehill
This has been a rough year for Tannehill. The locals in Miami have all but lost faith this season, as a dismal year turned even further south with an awful performance at woeful San Diego.
Ryan has always been pretty well-mannered on the field, but he finally cracked.
Dolphins' QB Ryan Tannehill was pressured on 54.1% of his dropbacks, the highest pressure rate in the league this week— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) December 21, 2015
4 years. 62 starts. 177 sacks. That's how long it took Ryan Tannehill to lose his cool. https://t.co/GfBFrA5Ae2— Max Himmelrich (@thedeependmiami) December 21, 2015
2) Von Miller
This is your typical Von update; stellar play mixed with a bit of (sometimes shady) ridiculousness
1) Johnny Manziel
Johnny's had two starts since we last updated you guys, so there's no shortage of updates here. Bear with us. This could get a bit long.
Johnny Manziel's PFF passing grade of +2.2 was the 5th highest of the weekend— Vincent Ronca (@Vinnie_Ronca) December 14, 2015
Duke Johnson was asked what the favorite thing he saw out of Manziel was. "Do I have to pick?"— Andrew Gribble (@Andrew_Gribble) December 13, 2015
In his last two starts, Manziel 642 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INTs, a 71% completion percentage, and 7 carries for 35 yards.— DawgPoundNation.com (@DawgPoundNation) December 13, 2015

Johnny Manziel looks terrific today. Extending plays. Hitting targets. Playing smart. CLE would be idiotic to cut him loose. Probably will.— Brad Evans (@YahooNoise) December 20, 2015

As you can see, Johnny is representing himself well. Teammates, fans, and third party media are buying in to his skills as a quarterback... but I'm still confident the Browns will Cleveland the situation and lose Johnny to a late round compensatory pick this offseason. Because they are the Browns, and they will never know joy.
