With an all-time great rushing touchdown and another in the final seconds to claim an unexpected win, Week 14 of the NFL was one of the best all season.
Here’s how it looked for punters:
Derrick Henry Runs Wild
Derrick Henry would be the first to admit he’s not been at his best this season. However, he gave everybody a taste of what his best is in Week 14.
With his 99-yard touchdown in which he ran through, over and around everybody, Henry tied the record for the longest run in NFL history.
He finished with 238 yards on the night, just 17 yards short of Jacksonville’s total yards as a team.
238 rushing yards. 4 TDs. And a BEASTMODE 99-yard TD.

Henry and the Titans now prepare to face the Giants in New York where they will enter as $2.22 underdogs.
Texans Streak Ended
Ty Hilton did as he always seems to do in Houston and dominated in leading the Colts to the 24-21 win over the Texans. Hilton finished with 199 yards on 22.1 yards per catch to see Houston’s winning streak stopped at nine. The Colts moved to 7-6 for the season, but the Texans still look set to win the division with a 9-4 record and only three weeks remaining.
Bill Belichick is being slammed for not only taking the field goal instead of pressing the Dolphins on the one-yard line but for also having Rob Gronkowski on the field for the final play that ended up losing the Patriots the game.
Down by five with seven seconds left to play and 69 yards to travel, the Dolphins pulled off the miracle play.

Cowboys Kicking On?
Are the Cowboys a threat to the NFC?
Dallas’ latest win must give them confidence. With their backs against the wall and at risk of losing all of their late-season momentum heading into overtime against the Eagles, Amari Cooper scored his third touchdown of the night to secure the 29-23 win.
I think Amari Cooper's game yesterday was one of the best individual games I've seen from a WR in a long, long time. He was that good.

The Cowboys look for their sixth win in a row in Indianapolis next week. The Colts are -3 and $1.65 favourites to end the Cowboys winning streak.
NFL Against The Spread Trends
The Falcons remain at the bottom after failing to cover against the Packers. Atlanta hasn’t covered the spread since Week 9. Up against the Cardinals with a -8.5 line, there’s a good chance the streak continues in Week 15.
Meanwhile, the Saints continued to cash in for punters with their 10th cover in 11 weeks. They only need to win by a touchdown (-6.5) to cover against the Panthers next week.
