Hokies In The NFL: Week 17

Jonathan Daniel

James Anderson, LB Chicago Bears -- Anderson put together a dynamite week to finish out the season, leading the Bears with 12 tackles, all solo efforts, and adding a sack, a tackle for a loss and an additional hit on Aaron Rodgers. Hell of a game for this guy.

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers -- Boykin had an interesting day opposite Anderson and the Bears. Despite the return of Aaron Rodgers, with the return of Randall Cobb, his targets were limited and he only caught 2 balls for 8 yards. He did, however, manage to get into the end zone on a, well...rather weird fumble recovery return for a touchdown. Without that play, the Packers are sitting at home for the playoffs.

2 REC, 8 YDS, TD

Duane Brown, OG Houston Texans -- The Texans lost, again (recycled that line...thanks for the favor Texans). Matt Schaub was sacked only once, which makes it much more likely that Duane Brown is off the hook for that one, unlike previous weeks where, well, let's just say the Texans OL gave up lotsa sacks.

Roc Carmichael, CB Philadelphia Eagles -- Roc was active but didn't accumulate any stats.

Kam Chancellor, S Seattle Seahawks -- The Seahawks clinched the top seed in the NFC and Kam of course played a big part, tallying 9 tackles, 6 solo, both of which were second on the team. As he is every week, Kam is again a candidate for Hokie POTW honors.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs -- Flowers appears to have gotten the day off along with many of the other Kansas City starters as the Chiefs backups gift-wrapped the Chargers a playoff spot.

Shayne Graham, K New Orleans Saints -- Graham was a perfect 6-of-6 on extra points as the Saints offense did most of the heavy lifting in securing a playoff spot with a 42-17 demolishing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
6/6 XP

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins -- Hall had a pedestrian game, posting 4 tackles, all solo. Statistically, it was another great season for Hall, even if he's often thought of as an average at best starting defensive back. Sadly, for the Redskins, that was good enough for Hall to be one of their best defenders.

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants -- Hosley was active, but didn't do nada. I missed that Hosley got some punt return duty. Not like he did particularly well with it, but maybe he's playing his way into some returning next year?
3 RET, 9 YDS

Will Montgomery, G Washington Redskins -- Kirk Cousins was sacked three times and played pretty poorly, but as far as that concerns Montgomery, I'm not sure. But hey, he did record a tackle! For one last time this year, Washington fans, take it away. There was no way I was watching this shitfest.

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins -- Morgan was inactive...a healthy scratch. Rotoworld seems to think his time in Washington is up, but there are spots in the league for guys like him who've been productive when they've been called on.

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers -- Royal concluded one of his best regular seasons to date with 3 catches for 34 yards and a touchdown and 2 rushes for 17 yards to help the Chargers into the playoffs.
3 REC, 34 YDS, TD, 2 RUSH, 17 YDS

Andre Smith, TE Cleveland Browns -- Inactive.

Tyrod Taylor, QB Baltimore Ravens -- No Tyrod time despite Joe Flacco derping all over the field=no playoffs for Baltimore and no Doug Williams opportunity for T-mobile. 'Til next year my friend. This happened, but nothing came of it:

Darryl Tapp, DE/LB Washington Redskins -- Tapp was active, but nothing doing. Ended his season on the unforgivable note of no solo tackle. This makes me hurt inside.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles -- Vick didn't get into the game, but the Eagles are going to the playoffs as the NFC East winner. If Foles gets hurt, he's the guy.

Ryan Williams, RB Arizona Cardinals -- Williams was a healthy scratch for the season. That's right, 0-for-16. Not ideal, but it's kind of impressive.

Jason Worilds, LB Pittsburgh Steelers -- Worilds was inactive for the first time this season with the abdominal injury he suffered last week. Despite that fact, every fantasy tracker that I've come across seems to think he's in for a hefty raise this offseason.

Practice Squad:
Corey Fuller (WR Detroit Lions), Vinston Painter (OT, Denver Broncos), Bruce Taylor (LB, Cincinnati Bengals)

Injured reserve:
Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals --
season-ending knee surgery
David Wilson, RB New York Giants -- season-ending neck injury
