Green Bay Packers

You could just as easily say Aaron Rodgers here. However, the Packers responded in impressive fashion after the loss against the 49ers, by beating up the Redskins. The Packers finally found a running game with James Starks. Aaron Rodgers set a career high with 480 passing yards. Sadly, it only tied the franchise record set by Matt Flynn in 2011 against the Lions. The Packers were up 31-0 almost midway through the 3rd quarter. Someone tell me how the Redskins scoring a touchdown constitutes having a ballgame?

Mario Williams

You could also just say congrats to the entire Buffalo Bills team (and we would say that to rookie EJ Manuel for getting his first win). Williams has battled through a good bit, and reminded everyone (well, at least the Bills) why they paid to have Super Mario to join them. Should his health stay there, maybe he gets it all going again.

San Diego Chargers

Just when you thought the Chargers were going to blow it again, they ended up pulling things out at the end of the game at Philly. Nick Novak booted through a 46 yard field goal to win the game, and everyone rushed to claim Eddie Royal off Free Agent Waivers in Fantasy Football.

Seattle Seahawks

Talk about manhandling. First Cam Newton, now Colin Kaepernick. Marshawn Lynch got his extra skittles before the game. +1 to Coach Carroll
