NFL Week 12 Summary

NFL Week 12 Summary

One of the most-anticipated games of any NFL regular season is when future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning face off, and their 14th career meeting in Week 12 at New England lived up to the expectations.

Manning led Denver to a 24-0 halftime lead, only for the Patriots defense to stiffen as Brady led New England to 31 straight points. Manning tied the game with 3:06 left on an 11-yard TD pass to send the game into overtime. The Broncos couldn't muster anything offensively in two offensive possessions and the Patriots got the break they needed when their punt hit a Broncos coverage player and New England recovered. With 1:56 left in the extra session, Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal for the 34-31 Patriots victory. Denver was a 1-point dog, the only time in the 2013 season it wasn't favored.

The victory improved Brady to 10-4 against Manning in their careers and was the seventh win in nine home games for Brady against his rival. It was New England's fifth win over a Manning-led team in eight games decided by a touchdown or less.

There was a second overtime game in Week 12, and Green Bay and Minnesota tied at 26-26, the first time in NFL history a game ended on that score. Each team hit on one field goal in overtime. The Vikings were 6-point underdogs against the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers. The game was over the 44.5 total entering the extra session so the scores in that period were meaningless in that regard.

There was just one double-digit dog in Week 12 and it was Jacksonville +10.5 at Houston. The Jaguars won 13-6, the ninth loss in a row for Houston and its second straight as a 10.5-point favorite (Oakland). The biggest cover of the week was Arizona -1 blowing out visiting Indianapolis 40-11.

Overall in Week 12, underdogs covered in eight of the 14 games and the under hit in eight of the 14. The lowest-scoring game was that Jaguars-Texans game (under 44) and the highest scoring was San Diego 41, Kansas City 38 (over 43).
