Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-25 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12, Week 16 win over the Chiefs.
Greg Olsen secured just 1-of-3 targets for 21 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.
With Jerricho Cotchery taking on a bigger role, Olsen wasn't targeted until midway through the second quarter. It's also worth noting that Cleveland has played stingy defense versus tight ends all year. Olsen will close out his career-best regular season in Week 17 at Atlanta.
Devonta Freeman rushed five times for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Saints, adding 3 catches for 48 yards.
Freeman busted through a seam on the right side of the Falcons' line, made the safety miss and raced 31-yards to the house to give the Falcons a 20-7 lead in the third quarter. It was probably the most impressive run by a Falcons back this season, but the coaching staff still limited Freeman's touches even with Steven Jackson (quad) sidelined. Jacquizz Rodgers averaged 2.6 yards per carry on 11 totes. Freeman could have a decent role against the Panthers Week 17 if Jackson is forced to miss.
Kelvin Benjamin secured 5-of-12 targets for 47 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.
Not having to deal with Joe Haden (shoulder), Benjamin made a spectacular leaping catch for 18 yards in the second quarter. Otherwise, his receptions consisted of chain-moving gains on a day where Cam Newton managed 201 yards passing. One element missing from Benjamin's game is run-after-catch ability. The Panthers will face the Falcons in Atlanta for the NFC South title next week.
Jimmy Clausen completed 23-of-39 passes for 181 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 20-14 Week 16 loss to the Lions.
Cam Newton completed 18-of-31 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Panthers' Week 16 win over Cleveland, adding 12 carries for 63 yards and an additional score.
The Panthers' passing game struggled, but Newton plunged in for a two-yard touchdown on a second-quarter bootleg to give Carolina a 10-3 lead. OC Mike Shula was surprisingly aggressive utilizing Cam as a runner under two weeks removed from his scary car accident. Cam dominated on bootleg runs in this game, finishing with his third highest rushing total of the season. Newton threw his lone TD pass to Jonathan Stewart from nine yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved the game winner. At 6-8-1, the Panthers will face the Falcons in Week 17 for the NFC South title.
Julio Jones caught 7-of-8 targets for 107 yards Week 16 against the Saints.
Jones did not play every snap, but he played the vast majority despite not practicing at all leading up to the game. Jones did not appear to be 100 percent healthy, but he still made several big plays including a huge 24-yard grab that set up the Falcons for a touchdown with little time left in the second quarter. Jones appeared to escape the game without any setbacks, meaning he should be good to go for the winner take all game against the Panthers next week.
Joique Bell rushed 13 times for 74 yards with one touchdown and caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's 20-14 Week 16 win at Chicago.
Bell was oddly benched for the entire first quarter, perhaps due to some kind of rules violation. But it was business as usual after he got his first snap with 12:36 left in the second quarter. Bell was the feature back, hogging clock-killing and red-zone work even though Reggie Bush was looking extremely spry. The highlight was a madden-style 17-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that gave the Lions a lead they would hold. Earlier, Matthew Stafford barely missed Bell on a wheel route that would have gone for a touchdown. The Lions close the regular season at Green Bay next week, a game that will decide the NFC North.
