Week 12 NFL Winners and Losers

If you are a Steelers fan, you were hoping for Charlie Batch to "not lose the game." He didn't exactly lose it, but when you have four running backs fumbling six times, losing four of them, it's really hard to win. The Browns won 20-14, in large part to the ineptness of Pittsburgh's running backs. They are big losers in Week 12. 

The Bears are big winners (and losers) in week 12. They easily beat the Vikings 28-10 and got Jay Cutler back. The bad news, three more Bears went down. Devin Hester, Matt Forte and Charles Tillman all left with injuries. If you're a Bears fan, you hope for good health as they have the Seahawks in week 13. 

In Miami, the sprinkler system went off, and so did the Dolphins offense. In a rookie QB matchup, Ryan Tannehill led his team to a heart-stopping fourth quarter game-winning drive. He out-dueled Russell Wilson, leading the Dolphins to a 24-21 win over the Seahawks. Tannehill is making believers out of fans in South Beach, and he's a big winner. 

Relax, Julio Jones fantasy owners. The Falcons wide receiver was questionable before kickoff, but he led his team to a big NFC South win against the Bucs, 24-23. Jones netted 147 yards, including a touchdown. Yes, Julio Jones was a big winner. 

The New York Jets don't have much at all to be thankful for. But when you look at their 52 seconds of doom on Thanksgiving Day, you know they are huge Week 12 losers. Yes, the Patriots scored three touchdowns in 52 seconds in the second quarter. The Pats also put up 35 points in that season-defining quarter for the J-E-T-S.
