Week 15: Studs & Duds

Originally Published: December 16, 2007



The milestones keep on coming for Favre. In the Packers' 33-14 victory over the Rams, Favre became the NFL career leader in yards passing, overtaking Dan Marino in yet another category. Favre threw for 227 yards and now has 61,405 yards for his career.


Spurlock did something Sunday that 140 other Buccaneers could not in the team's 32-year history; he returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Spurlock's historic 90-yard return in the first quarter helped propel the Bucs to a 37-3 victory over the Falcons.


On a day when their offense was uncharacteristically sluggish, the Patriots needed a boost from their defense against the Jets. Enter Wilson. The fifth-year safety had a 5-yard interception return for a score in the first quarter and recovered a key fumble in the third quarter of New England's 20-10 victory.


On a cold, snowy day in Cleveland, Lewis helped the Browns move closer to a playoff berth. Lewis rushed for 163 yards as his team earned a hard-fought, 8-0 victory over the Bills.


Brees was almost perfect against the Cardinals. The Saints quarterback completed 26 of 30 passes (87 percent) for 315 yards and two touchdowns as New Orleans kept its wild-card hopes alive with a 31-24 victory.


LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles combined for 238 yards and four touchdowns in a 51-14 rout of the Lions. Tomlinson moved into seventh place on the all-time touchdown list with 127 career scores.



One week after clinching the NFC West title, the Seahawks looked lifeless in a 13-10 loss to the Panthers. Seattle was held scoreless until the fourth quarter, and Shaun Alexander was held to 17 yards rushing.


With Jessica Simpson watching from the luxury box, Romo played as if his mind were elsewhere. He completed just 13 of 36 passes and was intercepted three times as the Cowboys fell to the Eagles, 10-6.


Kitna threw for 302 yards, but he tied his career high with five interceptions in the Lions' 51-14 loss to the Chargers. Three of Kitna's picks came in the span of six plays in the first half, leading to 17 San Diego points.


The Falcons have had a revolving door at quarterback this season, and Redman isn't faring much better than Joey Harrington and Byron Leftwich. Redman was 4-of-15 for only 34 yards in Atlanta's 37-3 loss to the Buccaneers. He was intercepted twice and lost a fumble that set up a Tampa Bay touchdown late in the first half.
