Week 14 is in the bag as the play-off race goes into the final straight.

The regular seasons end is in sight and there still remains a fight for the wild card games. Some teams have guaranteed themselves a play-off position but results this week through many cats amongst many pigeons.

As the temperature rose, so did the excitement, none more than in Dallas which makes my game of the week.

In Command: In Tebow They Trust

Week 14 Highlight - Chicago Bears 10 Denver Broncos 13

The Tebow Train keeps on going as the quarterback led yet another late rally and overtime win.

This time it was the Bears on the recieving of Tebow's uncanny nature of winning late this season. After a scoreless three quarters, Tebow found DeMaryius Thomas for a 10-yard touchdown. Denver then got the ball back with only 58 seconds to go, which inevitably pumped up Tebow. The quarterback drove forward far enough for Matt Prater to kick a field goal as time expired. 


In Overtime, Bears running back Mario Barber fumbled the ball which was recovered by Broncos Defensive End Elvis Dumervil. Prater then secured Broncos sixth straight victory as most peoples faith is now coming back to Tim Tebow. 

FACT - Half of Broncos victories have been in Overtime. 'The Tebow Effect'

A fourth quarter turn around courtesy of QB Matt Ryan and rookie WR Julio Jones won the game for the Falcons after being 16 points behind the Panthers at one point.

Philadelphia Eagles 26 Miami Dolphins 10
A 24-point second quarter blitz from the Eagles was the difference in Florida alongside nine sacks. After missing three games with a rib injury, QB Michael Vick was back in business as the Eagles look to complete a late push for the Play Offs. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 Jacksonville Jaguars 41

Sunday Night Football & Game of the Week - New York Giants 37 Dallas Cowboys 34
In my opinion, the best game of the season. It had everything and yet again the fourth quarter belonged to Eli Manning (400 yards, 2 TD's) as the victory made the Giants favourites to steal the Cowboys play-off place away. The star QB ended the Giants' four-game losing streak with a bang throwing two touchdowns in the final few minutes to steal victory. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo wasn't out of form either throwing 4 TD's for 321 yards but the victory for New York sets up a huge game on New Years day when the two teams will be expected to be in a play-off of their own for the NFC East Championship.

St Louis Rams 13 Seattle Seahawks 30
Marshawn Lynch rushed for over 100 yards for the fifth time in six game, with him bathed in skittles in the end zone as he celebrated his touchdown. Meanwhile the Rams cannot wait for the season to end as they look forward to a fresh start next season.
