TJ's Take on Week 16

Here's my quick review of everything we saw in Week 16 of the 2005 NFL season:

Offensive player of the week
Redskins WR Santana Moss. Moss celebrated his first Pro Bowl invite by catching five passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns as Washington closed in on a playoff berth with a 35-20 win over the Giants.

Defensive player of the week
Bills CB/KR Terrence McGee. Totaled 4 tackles, knocked down a pass and became the first player in NFL history to return an interception (46 yards) and kickoff (99 yards) for touchdowns in the same game as Buffalo upset the Bengals.

Coaching move of the week
Mike Mularkey and Mike Nolan. The Bills and 49ers had not won road games all year, but Buffalo stunned the Bengals at Cincinnati and the Niners swept the Rams for the first time since 1998. A lot to be said about the integrity of the teams in this league.

Next week
The once-dormant Patriots are getting hot at the right time, and may be primed to grab the No. 3 seed in the AFC with a couple wins and an assist/loss by the Bengals.
