2) Dive Dive Dive! You strap an air tank to your back, slip on a face mask and some swim fins, and then it's time for splash down! Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson's helmet and pads amazingly transform into full SCUBA gear and he instantly joins you ... the guy really is Megatron!

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson helped lead his team to a 20-14 victory against the Chicago Bears in Week 14, finishing with 103 yards on just six receptions.
This season the playoff race has been exciting to say the least. From the AFC where there are many teams fighting for only 2 spots, to the NFC where the 5-7 Falcons are the number 4 seed! So as the 2014 season is nearing an end here are my predictions for the playoffs. The AFC wildcard goes to the Chargers and Ravens These two teams are both playing great football and as you can see from week 13 they are very similar teams. First off the Ravens will get in because they have beat good teams (Dolphins, Steelers, ect.), have a proven offense and defense, and are better than the Steelers and Browns. The reason that they are better than the Steelers is because the Steelers choke against bad teams like the Buccaneers and Jets. They are better than Cleveland because the Browns are struggling and are caught in a bunch of 7-6 teams like the Bills and Dolphins. As for the Chargers they are just playing like they did earlier in the season. They are winning and now have a thriving Philip Rivers and a very good Ryan Mathews. For those reasons they will propel themselves over teams like the Dolphins, Steelers, and the Texans and into the 5th and 6th seed. The NFC wildcard goes to the Cardinals and Lions The Cardinals are a surprise but the way Drew Stanton has played, besides the Chief game, and the injuries I could see Seattle taking the Cardinals spot. For the Lions the Packers are the better and hotter team right now and will take the NFC North but with Calvin Johnson looking amazing and Reggie Bush back they can get to the playoffs. The Cowboys could also be in one of those spots but they don't look as good as they did and just knowing the Cowboys they will find a way not to get in the playoffs. My entire playoff picture AFC #1Patriots #2Broncos #3Bengals #4Colts #5Chargers #6Ravens NFC #1Packers #2Seahawks #3Eagles #4Falcons #5Cardinals #6Lions

Poll: Who should be the Jets starting QB in 2015?

Monday, December 1st

Monday Night Football

Miami Dolphins 16 - New York Jets 13
The Dolphins escaped the Jets upset bid and remained in the playoff hunt thanks to the running of Lamar Miller (12 fantasy points).

Sunday Night Football

Denver Broncos 29 - Kansas City Chiefs 16
On a cold and windy night in Kansas City, Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (24 fantasy points) put the team on his back, rushing for 168 yards and catching one of Peyton Manning's (12 fantasy points) two TD passes.

Late Games

Green Bay Packers 26 - New England Patriots 21
In a clash of NFL titans, Aaron Rodgers (24 fantasy points) showed why he's considered one of the top players in the game today. His 364 yards passing and two TDs led the Packers to a statement win over the Patriots. As he always does, Tom Brady (17 fantasy points) found a way to keep New England within striking distance until the very end.

Atlanta Falcons 29 - Arizona Cardinals 18
The unstoppable Julio Jones (24 fantasy points) led the Falcons to a surprising win over the Cardinals. The win kept the Falcons in a first-place tie in the NFC South with New Orleans.

Early Games

San Diego Chargers 34 - Baltimore Ravens 33
Philip Rivers (27 fantasy points) led the Changers to an exciting come-from-behind win, hitting Eddie Royal (12 fantasy points) for the game-winning TD pass with 38 seconds left in the game.

New Orleans Saints 35 - Pittsburgh Steelers 33
Drew Brees (32 fantasy points) cranked out five TD passes and WR Kenny Stills (22 fantasy points) had 162 yards receiving as they Saints held off a furious late rally by the Steelers for the impressive road victory. Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (31 fantasy points) was amazing in a losing effort.

St. Louis Rams 52 - Oakland Raiders 0
Rookie WR Tre Mason (34 fantasy points), QB Shaun Hill (21 fantasy points) and the Rams defense (32 fantasy points) all had dominating performances against the one-win Raiders.

Indianapolis Colts 49 - Washington Redskins 27
Andrew Luck (30 fantasy points) fired off five TD passes and rookie WR Donte Moncrief (26 fantasy points) emerged as another threat for the Colts offensive machine.

Houston Texans 45 - Tennessee Titans 21
Ryan Fitzpatrick (39 fantasy points) had a career game by throwing six TD passes as the Texans crushed the Titans.

Buffalo Bills 26 - Cleveland Browns 10
The Bills defense (22 fantasy points) took control of this game early and never allowed the Browns to get close.

Jacksonville Jaguars 26 - New York Giants 25
The Jaguars defense (22 fantasy points) scored twice to spark an improbable come-from-behind win over the Giants.

Cincinnati Bengals 14 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13
Despite throwing three INTs, Andy Dalton (11 fantasy points) hit WR A.J. Green (11 fantasy points) for the game-winner.

Minnesota Vikings 31 - Carolina Panther 13
The Vikings defense (22 fantasy points) blocked two punts for TDs and Teddy Bridgewater (14 fantasy points) threw two TD passes to give the Viking the easy win.


Seattle Seahawks 19 - San Francisco 49ers 3
The Seahawks were rude Thanksgiving guests as they feasted on the home team 49ers. Russell Wilson (15 fantasy points) ran the Seahawks offense like he was going for a second helping of mashed potatoes and the Seahawks defense (16 fantasy points) displayed their Legion of Boom swagger.

Philadelphia Eagles 33 - Dallas Cowboys 10
It seems only natural that on the national day of turkeys, a team of Eagles would soar to victory. QB Mark Sanchez (21 fantasy points) continued his amazing resurgence under offensive wizard Chip Kelly, and WRs Jordan Matthews (11 fantasy points) and Jeremy Maclin (11 fantasy points) zoomed through the Cowboys secondary like early arrivers at a black Friday sale.

Detroit Lions 34 - Chicago Bears 17
Calvin Johnson (26 fantasy points), Matthew Stafford (21 fantasy points) and Joique Bell (17 fantasy points) might be too full to have their holiday meal after they feasted on the Bears. The only happy Chicago fans today are the ones who had WR Alshon Jeffery (19 fantasy points) in their fantasy football line-up.

As a whole the Thanksgiving football games were a disappointment for fans. The scores were 34-17, 33-10, and 19-3. The games were supposed to be close, intense match-ups, but they ended up being blowouts. The key players were LeSean McCoy, Calvin Johnson, and Russell Wilson. Theses players all helped their teams secure big victories. I was very surprised that the Eagles blew out the Cowboys. The Cowboys played at home which is an advantage, and have been playing strong at this point in the season, so I expected them to win the game. The Cowboys struggled running the football and this led to difficulties throwing the football later in the game. The Eagles surprised me by playing so well, especially Mark Sanchez who was very impressive at quarterback. I wish the games on Thanksgiving had been closer, but it was still fun to watch them.
