I'm so sorry, we have to start this article with some terrible NFL news.
Bears placed starting TE Martellus Bennett (rib) on IR and signed TE Rob Housler.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 8, 2015
Noooooooooooo! He is the soul of this article. The amateur cartoon directing, crazy quoting, Pro-Bowl TE gift that keeps on giving.
We will press on. Somehow.
5) Johnny Manziel
Johnny's back! Again. Or.... for the third time, maybe? We've lost track, to be honest.
In any regard, the Browns re-made it re-official after falling to 2-10 this weekend: Johnny Manziel is their starting quarterback.
His schedule starts decently enough... and then it gets dark reallll quick.
- 12/13: San Francisco
- 12/20: @Seattle
- 12/27: @Kansas City
- 1/3: Pittsburgh
It's one heck of a way to cap his 23rd (and perhaps most tumultuous) year on this earth.
Best of luck over the next few weeks, Mr. Football. Here's one final Browns dig to tide us over.
4) Ryan Tannehill
The Dolphins were 1-4 in their last five under former Aggie TE Dan Campbell... and the natives were starting to get restless about the A&M QB/HC combo.
A very winnable home game against the depleted Ravens beckoned, and Tannehill got it done. Barely.
47.4% completion; 86 yards... and one beautiful touchdown pass that turned out to be juuuuust enough to edge Baltimore 15-13
3) Von Miller
Two more sacks and a forced fumble for Von. Just another day at the office.
"I don’t think [Rivers] was happy with the cologne...I was on him a lot at the end of the game, & not everyone likes my smell." Von Miller— Cecil Lammey (@CecilLammey) December 7, 2015
2) Michael Bennett
We could very well have two Aggie All-Pro pass rushers in the NFL. Bennett was spectacular on Sunday, stacking another excellent effort on top of an incredible individual statistical season.
He has been simply unblockable lately.
1) Mike Evans
This article is heavily skewed towards individual statistical efforts... but sometime we have to acknowledge spectacular individual moments.
Jameis confirms. He literally asked the huddle who wants to score a TD and Evans was the first to answer. Then he caught the game-winner.— Paul Ryan (@WFLAPaul) December 6, 2015
How great is that? It plays like something straight out of a movie. Absolutely fantastic.
Here's the play that won the game for Tampa to move to 6-6.
Let's bring this week's edition to a close... how do you see the final few weeks playing out for Johnny?
