NFL Week 14 Summary

NFL Week 14 Summary

Week 14 will probably go down as the wildest week of the 2013 NFL regular season, especially the Sunday 1 p.m. Eastern time block of games.

The Detroit Lions led the Eagles 8-0 in Philadelphia at halftime during a blizzard. There looked to be no chance the game would exceed the 51 points. However, the Eagles, who were 2.5-point favorites, and running back LeSean McCoy exploded in the snow in the second half for a 34-20 victory. McCoy ran for a team-record 217 yards, including touchdowns of 57 and 40 yards. Detroit's Jeremy Ross had a rarity by returning both a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns.

The winter weather was a big factor in Pittsburgh as well, with Miami winning 34-38. The Steelers appeared to score a miracle winning touchdown on the final play of the game after several laterals, but Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown was ruled to have stepped out of bounds at the Miami 12 before reaching the end zone. Replays showed he did, just barely. Miami was a 3-point dog in that one.

New England did get a miracle victory. The Patriots were 9.5-point home favorites against Cleveland but trailed 26-14 with just over a minute left. Then Tom Brady found Julian Edelman for a 2-yard touchdown pass and the Patriots recovered the onside kick. With 31 seconds left, Brady found Danny Amendola for a 27-26 lead. The shell-shocked Browns would miss a potential winning 58-yard field goal on the final play. New England did lose Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski to a season-ending injury in the game, a big blow to its Super Bowl hopes.

By far the craziest game was in Baltimore. The Ravens took a 7-6 lead in the wintry conditions over Minnesota into the fourth quarter, when things really got interesting. The teams would exchange the lead six times in the quarter, the most fourth-quarter lead changes in league history. They combined for an unthinkable five touchdowns in the final 2:05 of the game, including consecutive kickoff returns for scores. Baltimore, a 6-point favorite, won 29-26.

The biggest favorites of Week 14 were the Denver Broncos at -13 against visiting Tennessee and the Broncos won 51-28 (over 49.5) in the highest-scoring game of the week. That total was helped by Denver's Matt Prater, who kicked an NFL-record 64-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. Overall, favorites covered 10 of the 16 games and the over hit in 11 of the 16 games in a high-scoring week.
