Well, the Fins like to upset Pats in December. But mostly they did it in Miami. And 2 of their match winners (Welker and Morris) have Pats contract now.

Denver (6-7) at Houston (6-7)


Game Info: 8:15 pm EST Thu Dec 13, 2007
TV: NFL


By MATT BECKER, STATS Writer

Although the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans are long shots to make the playoffs, neither team is going away quietly.

Following victories last week, the Broncos and Texans look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they meet on Thursday night at Reliant Stadium.

The Broncos (6-7) are two games behind AFC West-leading San Diego with three to go. A loss this week coupled with a Chargers win over visiting Detroit would eliminate Denver from the division race.

The Texans (6-7) are out of the AFC South chase, but like the Broncos, still have a remote chance of a wild-card spot. Denver and Houston are two games behind Cleveland for the AFC's final wild-card spot, but are also a game back of Buffalo and Tennessee. The loser of this game will eliminated from the playoffs if Cleveland beats Buffalo on Sunday at home.

Thursday's winner, though, will have a slim chance of making the postseason. After this game, the Broncos visit San Diego and then wrap up the regular season against Minnesota, which currently holds the final wild-card spot in the NFC. The Texans, meanwhile, visit Indianapolis, which has the second-best record in the AFC, and concludes the regular season against Jacksonville, which currently has the AFC's first wild-card spot.

"We're not worried about anyone else," Denver tight end Daniel Graham said. "If we don't take care of our business, nothing is going to happen."

The Broncos are carrying some momentum into this contest, as they're coming off a 41-7 victory over Kansas City on Sunday - their most lopsided win since October 2000.

Denver jumped out to a 14-0 lead less than eight minutes into the game, and outgained the Chiefs 453 yards to 129, including a 215-16 edge in rushing.

"It's a shame that we couldn't start from Week 1 with this type of explosiveness," said rookie receiver Brandon Marshall, who caught 10 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns. "But everybody has their days and everybody has their seasons. So, hopefully we can keep this thing going and sneak into that playoff hunt. If not, we'll just take our momentum into the next season."

Denver's Jay Cutler completed 20-of-27 passes for 244 yards, a career-high four touchdowns and a career-best passer rating of 141.0. This came one week after he was 16-of-32 for 214 yards with two interceptions and a career-low rating of 45.6 in the Broncos' 34-20 loss to Oakland on Dec. 2.

"Too little, too late, I don't know," Cutler said.

Selvin Young rushed for a career-high 156 yards on 17 carries against the Chiefs, becoming the sixth undrafted rookie in league history to top 500 yards rushing. He has run for 569 yards on just 100 carries for an AFC-best 5.7 yards per attempt, but will be facing Houston's stingy run defense that has allowed just 118 yards on en route to winning its last two home games.

The Texans have been victorious in three of their last four at home, while the Broncos have dropped four of their last five on the road.

With a 28-14 win over NFC South-leading Tampa Bay last Sunday, Houston is one victory shy of matching the single-season franchise record set in 2004.

The Texans entered the game with a backup quarterback and, after the first series, were relying a rookie with no NFL experience at running back. Still, they helped knock off a Buccaneers team that had won four straight and was attempting to clinch their second division title in three years.

"I am just so proud of the effort of these guys," said Houston coach Gary Kubiak, who was Denver's offensive coordinator from 1995-2005. "We've got some problems. We've got enough guys nicked up to fill a couple of rooms, but the heart of this football team and the direction of the future of the young kids is just so bright."

Sage Rosenfels finished 27-of-36 for 209 yards with three touchdowns in his second start of the season for Houston. Rosenfels has won both games he's started in place of the injured Matt Schaub, who will likely be out again this week with an injured shoulder.

Undrafted rookie running back Darius Walker rushed for 46 yards on 16 carries and had 35 yards receiving on Sunday in his first NFL game. He took over for Ron Dayne, who has been hobbled with a tender ankle. Walker is likely to get a bulk of the action again this week.

"He went in there and it was nothing spectacular, but he was very solid," Kubiak said of Walker, who played at Notre Dame. "I'm proud of the kid. It's a step forward."

The Broncos posted a 31-13 home win over Houston on Nov. 7, 2004 in the only previous meeting between the teams.

MIRACLE ON GRIDIRON?


ERUZIONE: NOTHING’S IMPOSSIBLE


December 12, 2007 -- IF there was a Miracle On Ice, there can be a Miracle On The Gridiron, right?

If the US amateur hockey team can shock the mighty Soviets in Lake Placid on its way to a gold medal in the 1980 Winter Olympics, the Jets can overcome the 24-point odds and upset the Patriots Sunday, right?

“They don't have a chance," Mike Eruzione said.

Of all people to say that . . . YOU?

“I'm a Patriot fan," said Eruzione, the captain of the1980 US hockey team. “Big-time."

No chance?

“I was actually kidding," Eruzione said, and chuckled. “As an athlete, you have to believe you can win. Their mindset has to be what our mindset was - you have to play a perfect game. We couldn't take stupid penalties. We had to do all the things perfectly. For the Jets, that would mean don't fumble, don't throw interceptions and play pretty much a perfect game. We had great goaltending . . . they need to play great defense."

Eruzione talked about Mark Johnson's heroics and said: “You tell me who their best player is; he's gonna have to have a great game."

What would Eruzione tell the Jets if he were giving them a pregame speech?

“I think you gotta tell them to believe," he said. “You gotta have faith in yourself and faith in your teammates. These guys are professional - they better be prepared and ready to play. They get paid a lot of money. This is their livelihood and this is their opportunity to earn their keep. I would talk about the pride they have as athletes, to be as focused and prepared as best they can possibly be. If they're not, they're gonna get embarrassed."

All these years later, the final minutes in the locker room when coach Herb Brooks addressed his troops remain frozen in Eruzione's memory.

“That's when he told us we were born to be players, we were meant to be there," Eruzione said. “‘This moment is yours.' Nobody gave us a hope in hell of winning. Only 20 players, two coaches and two trainers thought we could win that hockey game. Nobody else. Nobody in the world."

Unlike his team, the Jets will be playing in hostile territory because of Spygate.

“The Jets have brought a little more burden on themselves," Eruzione said.

Where would a Jets upset rank?

“I would never put it in our category," Eruzione said. “I don't mean to be disrespectful to the Jets. We were college players. [ABC's] Jim McKay said it was like a group of Canadian college football players beating the Pittsburgh Steelers. They're considered some of the best in the world."

Eruzione, who lives in Winthrop, Mass., is a fundraiser for Boston University athletics, a spokesman for NutriSystem, a part-owner with Mario Lemieux and Luc Robitaille of the Omaha Lancers and an assistant hockey coach at Winthrop High School. He plans on watching Jets-Pats at a Christmas party at his home.

“If they do win," he says, “make sure you call."

Houston's Mario Williams has 3 1/2 sacks in 31-13 win over Broncos .

By KRISTIE RIEKEN, AP Sports Writer
December 14, 2007


HOUSTON (AP) -- Mario Williams had his best game at the perfect time.

Last year' No. 1 pick had a career-high 3 1/2 sacks to lead the Houston Texans to a 31-13 victory over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night in Houston's first prime-time game in two years.

"This is our first big-stage game," Williams said. "Everybody was watching. We were the only game on. We kind of showed the world what we can do."

With its seventh of the season, Houston tied the franchise record for victories.

When Williams dragged down Jay Cutler for the third time, he jumped up and sashayed like a hula dancer. The dance seemed appropriate with the performance sure to help his push for the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

"I know this kid is a tremendous football player," Kubiak said. "I'm just happy that good things keep coming his way."

Texans (7-7) fans yelled "overrated" when Williams was picked, but chanted his name Thursday as he posed Superman-like with his hands on his hips for several seconds after he took Cutler down for the second time.

"With everything that happened with the situation I was in last year and the criticism the owner and the coaches the whole organization had, this was big for us just to show what we could do and what we were capable of," he said."

Williams' performance made him Houston's career sack leader with 17 1/2 . He's had a sack in a team-record five straight games and has 13 for the season and nine in the last five games.

He has the second most sacks in the NFL behind Patrick Kerney (13 1/2 ).

"They're getting their money's worth these days, aren't they," Cutler said when asked about Williams.

Williams sack of Cutler forced a fourth down and the Broncos went for it, but the pass fell short, giving Houston the ball.

"He's playing the way we expected him to play," Texans owner Bob McNair said. "But understand that you haven't seen the best of Mario yet. He's going to get even better."

Ron Dayne, who didn't start because of a sore ankle, scored on a 6-yard run on the ensuing drive to push Houston's lead to 17-6. The Texans all seemed amped up for the their first prime time game since 2005 and their first game with the roof open this season.

The normally subdued Dayne, the 1999 Heisman Trophy winner, celebrated his touchdown by striking the Heisman pose. He had 11 carries for 67 yards.

Dayne walked with a visible limp all week, but brushed off questions about how much pain he was in after the game.

"I just wanted to help the team win," he said. "If I wasn't hurting I'd have carried the whole load."

Denver (6-8) got its second straight big game from receiver Brandon Marshall, who finished with 11 receptions for 107 yards.

In the first regular-season meeting between Houston coach Gary Kubiak and Denver's Mike Shanahan, it was the protege who outdid his mentor. Kubiak was Shanahan's offensive coordinator for 11 seasons in Denver.

"The key thing is that the Texans got a big win tonight," Kubiak said. "It wouldn't who (it) was against. We play good football like that they're all sweet."

Shanahan said he told Kubiak he did a "great job."

"You got your team ready to play," Shanahan said he told Kubiak. "You outplayed and outcoached us."

Andre Johnson had a 4-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter for his career-high seventh touchdown of the season. He finished with six receptions for 86 yards.

Williams third sack of Cutler forced the Broncos to punt and the Texans stretched the lead to 31-13 when Vonta Leach scored on a 1-yard run with 3:20 remaining.

Tony Scheffler caught a short pass from Cutler and leaped for a touchdown in the final minute of the third quarter for Denver to make it 17-13. Scheffler was upended at the goal line by Houston cornerback Von Hutchins and fumbled as he came down.

Officials ruled Scheffler broke the plane of the goal line before Hutchins hit him, but Kubiak challenged the call. After review, the play stood.

Cutler was 27-of-39 for 254 yards with one touchdown and was sacked five times.

"A team like this beating us by 18 points, I mean it's uncalled for," cornerback Champ Bailey said. "It should never happen."

Houston got a 41-yard field goal by Kris Brown midway through the second quarter. Andre' Davis opened that drive with a 50 yard kickoff return and a 20-yard reception.

The Broncos got to the Houston 13 early in the second quarter, but a penalty and a pass for a loss of 5 yards forced third-and-20. Will Demps knocked Cutler's pass down in the end zone and Denver settled for a 41-yard field goal by Jason Elam that made it 7-3.

Sage Rosenfels put the Texans ahead early when he capped a 69-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown run on the opening drive. Rosenfels, who started his second straight game in place of the injured Matt Schaub, was 16-of-27 for 200 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Elam had a 47-yard field goal in the second quarter.

Weather a factor for three NFL games

December 15, 2007
By PA SportsTicker

Sunday's NFL games in Foxboro, Pittsburgh and Cleveland are expected to be affected by the broad winter storm making its way toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

Of the three 1 p.m. games, the Cleveland Browns' contest with the Buffalo Bills is expected to see the worst of the storm.


The forecast is calling for heavy snow throughout the game, gusty winds of up to 35 miles per hour and temperatures in the high 20s.

The game is virtually a playoff game for the Bills (7-6) who are trying to force their way into the AFC wild card hunt with Cleveland (8-5).

In Foxboro, where the unbeaten New England Patriots (13-0) will host the New York Jets (3-10), a wintry mix is expected early in the day with rain to follow and wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour.

In a game with no shortage of storylines, the Patriots are trying to become only the second team in league history to win their first 14 games. The 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went 17-0, are the only team to accomplish that feat.

Similar conditions, with the chance of a bit more snow, are expected when the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-4) host the Jacksonville Jaguars (9-4).

NFL picks for Week 15

December 16, 2007

By Chris Palochko
PA SportsTicker Staff Writer


Three of the last four weeks having been winning ones. With that said, I believe this week is extremely challenging.

Season to Date: 30-38-1

Best Bets: 4-10

(Home team in caps)

1. (Best Bet) NEW ORLEANS (-3 1/2) over Arizona - This basically amounts to an elimination game. I'll take the home team.

PICK: NEW ORLEANS, 27-20

2. MIAMI (+ 3 1/2) over Baltimore - There is an old saying that says never ask a bad team to win for you. I'll go against that theory since I believe the gutless Ravens have quit on the season. Memo to Ray Lewis: Your big, bad defense scares no one.

PICK: MIAMI, 16-14

3. SAN DIEGO vs. Detroit (over 45) - Chargers are extremely beat up on both sides of the ball. LaDainian Tomlinson should run wild on the defenseless Lions.

PICK: SAN DIEGO, 34-17

4. Jacksonville (+3 1/2) over PITTSBURGH - This should be a tight game with plenty of defense. Just how big will the Marcus Stroud injury be for the Jags? Not big enough that they don't stay close.

PICK: PITTSBURGH, 17-14

5. NEW ENGLAND vs. Ny Jets (over 44 1/2) - I'm not in the least bit worried about the awful weather predicted for Foxboro.

PICK: NEW ENGLAND, 38-10

6. DALLAS (-10 1/2) over Philadelphia - I've been quite accurate on the Eagles. They are a finished team.

PICK: DALLAS, 31-17
