Hakeem Nicks caught 9-of-11 targets for 72 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.
Nicks was the focus of the Colts' passing attack with T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) sidelined, so it is not a huge surprise the offense fell flat on its face. Nicks was inexplicably used on four screen passes throughout the game, predictably doing nothing after each catch. T.Y. Hilton appeared close to playing against Dallas, so Nicks should mercifully be relegated to a tertiary role Week 17 against Tennessee.
Orleans Darkwa rushed four times for 21 yards with a touchdown and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.
Derek Carr completed 17-of-34 passes for 214 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 26-24, Week 16 win over the Bills.
Trent Richardson rushed two times for one yard and caught two passes for eight yards Week 16 against the Colts.
Richardson is usually terrible, but his performance Week 16 had more to do with the Colts' struggling offensive line. The Cowboys dominated the line of scrimmage, limiting Indianapolis to 229 total yards. Richardson will finish the season against the Titans Week 17.
Eli Manning completed 25-of-32 passes for 391 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.
For the second straight week, Eli was absolutely locked in. He dropped perfect dimes to both Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle, audibled perfectly to runs and took just one sack against a very good front four. Over the last two weeks, Manning has completed 72.7 percent of his passes with a 6:0 TD-to-INT ratio. He gets the atrocious Eagles secondary in Week 17's meaningless finale.
Kyle Orton completed 32-of-49 passes for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bills' 26-24, Week 16 loss to the Raiders.
The loss eliminates the Bills from the playoffs. Orton's stats don't look bad on paper, but his interceptions were killers. His first one went to Charles Woodson over the middle trying to get it to Scott Chandler, while the second one came late in the fourth quarter again down the middle of the field on an overthrow. Orton breathed life into the Buffalo offense when he first got the nod to start, but he's since been exposed. The Bills will wrap up their season in New England. E.J. Manuel may get the call under center.
Dan Herron rushed seven times for three yards and caught 3 passes for 37 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.
The entire Colts offense was in neutral in this one, and Herron was no exception. The interior of Indianapolis' offense line was dominated all game, giving the backs almost no room to run. Herron did have a long reception called back by penalty, and is still the Colts' best option at running back. He will look to finish the regular season strong against the Titans' leaky run defense next week.
Andre Williams rushed 26 times for 110 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.
With Rashad Jennings (ankle) inactive and the Giants dominating from start to finish, everything worked in Williams' favor. His best run was a 45-yard burst that saw him absolutely truck stick Rams S Rodney McLeon and keep running. Unfortunately, he blew a blitz pickup which led to a few extra carries for Orleans Darkwa in the first half, one of which went for a 12-yard score. Williams projects for a big workload again in Week 17 against the Eagles as it would be a surprise if Jennings returns.
