Bills coach Doug Marrone told RB C.J. Spiller to hold the offensive line accountable for their blocking during Sunday’s win.

The Dolphins’ defensive line came up with late pressure to help seal their victory over the Chargers.

Patriots LB Brandon Spikes will have plenty of friends and family in the stands on Monday night.

CB Dee Milliner allowed two more long gains on Sunday, but coach Rex Ryan is sticking with him.

The Ravens lost, but they got their running game in gear.

LB Jayson DiManche was one of several Bengals special teamers making big plays against the Browns.

Browns CB Joe Haden’s big day didn’t turn into a victory.

The success Steelers WR Antonio Brown had on Sunday helped open the door for WR Jerricho Cotchery to make big plays.

Booing got loud enough on Sunday that the Texans offense operated with a silent count.

Colts FB Stanley Havili isn’t the only member of his family with a job in the sports world.

Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew found little room to run once again.

David Climer of the Tennessean thinks Titans coach Mike Munchak’s job is on the line over the next six weeks.

The Broncos had plenty of balance on offense against Kansas City.

Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star writes that the Chiefs don’t need to be defined by Sunday’s loss to the Broncos.

Said Raiders cornerback Tracy Porter, “They moved the ball up and down the field but, at crucial moments, we were able to make a stand. That last one really meant something to the defense and the team as a whole. It shows that we’re growing and we’re learning to face adversity head on. We’re becoming a smarter, more experienced unit.”

TE Ladarius Green has made the most of opportunities in the Chargers offense.

LB Bruce Carter will be an important player for the Cowboys as they return from the bye.

Nick Foles got ribbed for his lack of foot speed, but the Eagles enjoyed what happened when their quarterback used his feet against the Redskins.

Said Redskins QB Robert Griffin III of Sunday’s final offensive play, “We had a certain concept to run. Nobody got open so I was backing up. In a situation where if you get a sack you end the game. I tried to throw the ball out of the end zone, it didn’t get to where I wanted it to go. Obviously, I was on my heels. It’s something I can learn from.”

DE Julius Peppers had a big impact for the Bears defense.

The Lions are catching criticism for a failed fake field goal try.

Running the ball didn’t work out well for the Packers.

Another week of quarterback questions for the Vikings.

Said Falcons coach Mike Smith, “We obviously didn’t play good enough football to win in any phase of the game today. The way that we played was unacceptable. The way that we coached is unacceptable.”

The Panthers have had several memorable matchups with the Patriots over the years.

WR Marques Colston keeps adding his name to the Saints’ record book.

LB Mason Foster has turned in a pair of touchdowns for the Buccaneers this season.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was questionable heading into Week 11, but his play showed no sign of injury.

How disappointing have the Rams been this season?

There wasn’t much to like about the 49ers offense in New Orleans.

The Seahawks finally got WR Percy Harvin on the field and they liked what they saw.

    The Raiders Offense looked like it should have all year! Terrell Pryor needs to play another position.

    Matt McGloin Undrafted Rookie proved himself!

    The Mobile Quarterback Era has ENDED!!!

    RG III, Terrell Pryor, Michael Vick, Geno Smith, Captain Krumpernickle have all failed to get it done when it counts.

    Of course they can all run fast but the football e travels much faster when its thrown.

    Apparently, Lunarpie hasn’t been watching Russell Wilson, Cam Newton or Nick Foles this season.

    To the guy that listed off all these black QB and tried to say mobile QB has ended. Geno Smith is not that mobile.

    Andrew Luck has the most rushing TDs of anyone in the last two years.

    Russell Wilson has 22 wins in under 2 years tied for NFL record with Big Ben as a starting QB in NFL.

    i think it would be better put … the era of the run first throw second quarterback has ended.

    QBs like Luck and Wilson go through their progressions/reads looking to get the ball out of their hands first, if things break down then they have the ability to make plays with their legs.

    The other QBs mentioned look at their first read and if he is not there they take off. big difference.

    Geno smith isn’t even a mobile QB
    Neither is Luck, although he can run when necessary and he has a knack for punching it into the endzone with his legs

    Cam Newton and Russell Wilson are the only two successful mobile QBs left

    Until Kaep and RG3 return to 2012 form

    I don’t know nuthin’ but Manning, Brees, Brady etc. seem to be doing OK without being “mobile”. What does that mean, anyway.
