2020 NFL Week 13 Game Recaps



Lamar Jackson returned from Covid-19. Find out how Baltimore did.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: December 8, 2020.




Cleveland Browns 9-3-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 8-4-0


Game Recap: TENNESSEE-Both teams have the top two running backs who led the NFL in rushing yards in 2019 with Nick Chubb and Derrick Henry. Cleveland did not have Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, Grant Delpit, or Ronnie Harrison on their secondary. Ryan Tannehill can pick apart Cleveland's defensive backs if he passes it to wide receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis. Jadeveon Clowney got season ending surgery prior to this game, so Tennessee's pass rush is now completely dependant on Harold Landry.


Cleveland got a field goal in this game. Cleveland led 3-0.


Cleveland's run defense stepped up holding Derrick Henry in check on fourth and one. Baker Mayfield got the ball back after a turnover on downs.


Jarvis Landry threw a trick pass to quarterback Baker Mayfield. That resulted in a first down. Baker Mayfield threw a touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry. Cleveland outgained Tennessee 123-28 in total yards on their first two drives compared to the Tennessee Titans first two drives. Cleveland led 10-0 after one quarter of play.


Baker Mayfield threw the ball to Kendall Lamb a backup offensive lineman for a touchdown. The big man in the trenches scores a receiving touchdown. Nothing like a big boned man scoring a touchdown. Cleveland led 17-0 early in the second quarter. Baker Mayfield began this game this game 11/13 with 2 passing touchdown.


A.J. Brown got injured on a play where Ryan Tannehill threw a touchdown pass to Corey Davis. Brown had 2 receptions on 2 targets for 52-receiving yards on this drive before his injury. Cleveland led 17-7.


Baker Mayfield threw a touchdown to Donovan Peoples-Jones. Tennessee put Breon Borders, who is playing with Adoree Jackson injured, Jonathan Joseph cut, and Kristian Fulton on the reserve list. I'm not taking anything away from Donovan Peoples-Jones, but Breon Borders is so terrible that Donovan Peoples-Jones will win that matchup 9 times out of 10. Cleveland led 24-7. Baker has dominated today, but Tennesee may need to add a cornerback for depth in the 2021 NFL Draft.


Baker Mayfield picked apart Breon Borders again when he threw a touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins. Next Browns drive, Nick Chubb got a rushing touchdown. Cleveland led 38-7 with less than a minute left in the first half.


Ryan Tannehill threw a garbage time touchdown to MyCole Pruitt. Cleveland led 38-13 as Cleveland stopped Derrick Henry on a two point conversion.


Ryan Tannehill threw a touchdown pass to A.J. Brown. He fumbled it a second time on the day, but MyCole Pruitt recovered the football. Cleveland led 38-21.


Cleveland got a field goal. Cleveland led 41-21 after three quarters of play.


Tennessee outscored Cleveland 14-0 in the fourth quarter. That didn't matter as Cleveland won 41-35.


Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was my player of the game. Baker Mayfield went 25/33 with 334 passing yards, 4 carries, 1 reception on 1 target, 5 rushing yards, 6 receiving yards, 345 total yards, 4 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.




Las Vegas Raiders 7-5-0
Versus
New York Jets 0-12-0


Game Recap: NEW YORK-Las Vegas got upset by the Atlanta Falcons. Could the winless Jets finally get their first win after starting the year 0-11. New York is one of two NFL teams that is mathmatically eliminated from the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

Jacksonville Jaguars 1-11-0
Versus
Minnesota Vikings 6-6-0


Game Recap: MINNESOTA-This should be an easy win for Minnesota. With Jacksonville starting 1-10 down to their third string quarterback, you'd think the Vikings would be a lock to win this game. Eric Kendricks was ruled out at middle linebacker for Minnesota prior to the start of this contest which made things easier for Mike Glennon.


Mike Glennon threw a touchdown pass to rookie Laviska Shenault Jr. Jacksonville missed the extra point, but got a field goal. Jacksonville led 9-0 after one quarter of play.


Mike Glennon made a great pass to Tyler Eifert in the second quarter. Jacksonville outgained Minnesota 13-2 in first downs in the first half. It looked Jacksonville would pull away, but Cameron Dantzler the rookie out of Mississippi State intercepted Mike Glennon.


Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass to Adam Theilen. Minnesota missed the extra point. Jacksonville led 9-6 at halftime.


Kirk Cousins threw a pick 6 to Joe Schobert the 4-3 right outside linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jacksonville led 16-6.

Minnesota won this game on a field goal in overtime. Minnesota barely prevailed 27-24.


Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was my player of the game. Dalvin Cook had 32 carries, 120 rushing yards, 6 receptions, 59 receiving yards, and 179 total yards.


Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson deserves an honorable mention as well. Justin Jefferson had 9 receptions, 121 receiving yards, and 1 receiving yards.





Cincinnati Bengals 2-9-1
Versus
Miami Dolphins 8-4-0


Game Recap: MIAMI-Miami got Tua Tagovailoa back. I was really looking forward to a Burrow VS Tua rematch before Burrow's injury.


Xavien Howard intercepted Brandon Allen. Miami could not capitalize.


Tyler Boyd, caught a 72-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Allen. Cincinnati led 7-0 after one quarter of play.


Miami got a field goal. Cincinnati led 7-3. Xavien Howard and Tyler Boyd got involved in a fight with both players being ejected from the game.

Miami got a field goal. Miami won 19-7. Kicker Jason Sanders dominated this game as I picked him up off of the waiver wire. Miami is 8-4 in large part due to their kicker Jason Sanders. Jason Sanders was 4/4 on field goal attempts and 1/1 on extra point attempts.




Indianapolis Colts 8-4-0
Versus
Houston Texans 4-8-0


Game Recap: HOUSTON-Anthony Castonzo was out at left tackle. Indianapolis is 0-1 on the year when Castonzo does not start at left tackle. Houston did not have Will Fuller, Randall Cobb, or Kenny Stills who they released at wide receiver, and yet a majority of our staff was bold enough to pick Houston to win.


Indianapolis stepped up early defensively despite not having Bobby Okerke at 4-3 left outside linebacker or Khari Willis at strong safety. They held Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans offense to a three and out.


Philip Rivers put together a 6-play 72-yard drive that took up 3 minutes and 28 seconds. Philip Rivers threw a touchdown to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton. Indianapolis led 7-0.

Rodrigo Blankenship got a field goal. Indianapolis led 24-17.


Houston got a field goal. Indianapolis led 24-20 at halftime.


Neither team scored in the third quarter. A safety was the only score of the fourth quarter. Houston had the ball at the Indianapolis 2-yard line before a late game fumble. Indianapolis barely won on the road in Houston in large part due to that fumble recovery.


Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers was my player of the game. Philip Rivers went 27/35 with 285 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.




Detroit Lions 5-7-0
Versus

Chicago continued their drive from the third quarter into the fourth quarter. Mitchell Trubisky threw a touchdown pass to rookie tight end Cole Kmet out of Notre Dame with 11:29 left in the game.

New Orleans Saints 10-2-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 4-8-0


Game Recap: ATLANTA-Taysom Hill is 2-0 as a starter. Atlanta played well defensively against the Las Vegas Raiders as they were hoping to avoid being swept by the Saints without Drew Brees.


New Orleans held Atlanta to two consecutive three and outs. Atlanta held New Orleans to a three and out on their opening series.


Taysom Hill threw a touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith. New Orleans led 7-0.

New York Giants 5-7-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 8-4-0


Game Recap: SEATTLE-Colt McCoy got the start for Daniel Jones. Seattle was a lock to win this game right? Wrong!


Seattle got a field goal in the first quarter. Seattle led 3-0 after one quarter of play as that was the only score of the first quarter.


Seattle got a safety. Seattle led 5-0 at halftime. Seahawks over Giants not Mariners over Yankees.

Darnay Holmes, the rookie cornerback out of UCLA that I was fortunate enough to interview in Mobile intercepted Russell Wilson. That interception set up a field goal for New York. New York led 17-5 and won 17-12 with Darnay Holmes being my player of the game.

Troy Hill picked off Kyler Murray. Hill got a pick 6. That gave the Los Angeles Rams a 38-21 lead.


Los Angeles won this game 38-28. This win gave the Rams control of the NFC West as Los Angeles now owns tiebreakers over both Arizona and Seattle at the moment.


Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff was my player of the game. Jared Goff went 37/47 with 351 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions.





New England Patriots 6-6-0
Versus
Los Angeles Chargers 3-9-0


Game Recap: LOS ANGELES-New England headed to Sofi Stadium. This would be the first of two matches at Sofi Stadium in the next five days.


New England got the ball to start this game on their own 25-yard line. Cam Newton opened up the game with a 15-yard pass to running back Damien Harris. Harris caught the pass for a first down before he was tackled by defensive tackle Linval Joseph. Cam Newton had a 14-yard run and a 2-yard run leading up to his rushing touchdown. New England put together a 13-play 75-yard drive that took up 7 minutes and 10 seconds.


Los Angeles put together a drive that lasted 6 minutes and 25 seconds. Los Angeles missed a field goal after Deatrich Wise Jr. made a huge sack on third down.


New England led 7-0 after one quarter of play. Both defenses adjusted and held the opposing quarterbacks to three and outs on their next two drives.


Gunner Olszewski returned a punt for a touchdown. New England led 14-0.


New England's defense held Justin Herbert to another three and out. That Deatrich Wise Jr. sack energized this entire defense in the first quarter. Herbert completed an 11-yard pass on the next drive, but New England had another third down stop.


Cam Newton had a rushing touchdown. New England led 21-0.


Los Angeles attempted a field goal. The field goal was blocked as Devin McCourty returned the field goal for a touchdown. New England led 28-0 at halftime.


Justin Herbert began the second half on a very bad note with two interceptions on the Los Angeles Chargers first two drives. Cam Newton threw a touchdown pass to N'Keal Harry after the first interception. New England led 35-0 after three quarters of play.


New England kicked a field goal in the fourth quarter. Nick Folk gave New England a 38-0 lead.


Justin Herbert had a 20-yard pass to Mike Williams in the fourth quarter. New England made a defensive stop on fourth and four.


Jarrett Stidham, the backup to Cam Newton also played College Football at Auburn. Stidham threw a garbage time touchdown.


New England won this game 45-0. Cam Newton had 1 passing touchdown, 2 rushing touchdowns, 3 total touchdowns, and no interceptions despite only having 69 passing yards, 48 rushing yards, and 107 total yards. Newton's touchdowns mattered while New England's defense balled out.


This was a huge team win for New England. They are staying in Los Angeles on a short week with the Patriots facing the Rams on Thursday. I honestly feel like that may give New England an advantage in a real close game, that I think the Rams should win.




Philadelphia Eagles 3-8-1
Versus
Green Bay Packers 9-3-0


Game Recap: GREEN BAY-Philadelphia headed to Green Bay. Philadelphia won this game on Thursday Night Football last year. I wasn't sure if either one of Philadelphia's quarterbacks without left tackle Andre Dillard, right tackle Lane Johnson, or right guard Brandon Brooks.


Philadelphia opened this game with a 15-play drive that took up 7 minutes and 7 seconds. Philadelphia held Green Bay to a three and out on their first offensive possession thanks to a huge third down sack by defensive tackle Javon Hargrave. Philadelphia led 3-0 after one quarter of play.


Green Bay put together a long drive fro their own 12-yard line. This was a 14-play 88-yard drive that took up 7 minutes and 42 seconds. Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver DaVante Adams. Green Bay led 7-3.


Aaron Rodgers threw another touchdown pass in the second quarter. Green Bay led 14-3 at halftime.


Green Bay got the ball to start the second half. Philadelphia held Green Bay to a three and out.


Carson Wentz threw a 41-yard pass to tight end Dallas Goedert which was the Lexus Big Play of the game in this contest. Unfortunately, Green Bay adjusted and Philadelphia could not capitalize on this drive.


Aaron Rodgers threw another touchdown pass to DaVante Adams. The extra point was no good. Green Bay led 20-3.


Green Bay won this game 30-16. Jalen Hurts came in off the bench for Carson Wentz. It wasn't enough as Darnell Savage intercepted Hurts to seal the Eagles chances of pulling off a comeback.


The trio for the Green Bay Packers on offense can all make a case for player of the game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, running back Aaron Jones, and wide receiver DaVante Adams all can make a case.


Quarterback Aaron Rodgers went 25/34 with 295 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Running back Aaron Jones had 15 carries for 120 rushing yards and 1 rushing touchdown. Wide receiver DaVante Adams had 10 receptions, 121 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns.


Of those three I gave DaVante Adams my player of the game award. You could make a case for one of the two Aaron's, but Rodgers didn't have 300 passing yards while Jones only had 1 rushing touchdown.




Denver Broncos 4-8-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 11-1-0


Game Recap: KANSAS CITY-Drew Lock and the three Broncos quarterbacks missed last week against New Orleans. Lock came back and was ready to prove himself in prime time.

Drew Lock threw a touchdown pass to Tim Patrick. Denver's defense held Kansas City to two field goals, but Denver also missed a field goal. Denver led 10-9 at halftime.

Drew Lock drove Denver downfield. Drew Lock threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Tim Patrick. Denver went for a two point conversion, but they did not get it. Denver led 16-12 after a 11-play drive that lasted 6 minutes and 42 seconds.


Kansas City got the ball from their own 25-yard line. Mahomes began this drive with a 30-yard pass to Treek Hill. Mahomes threw another completion which was a 14-yard pass to Travis Kelce. Mahomes threw a 5-yard pass to Sammy Watkins, who returned from an injury after missing quite a bit of time this season. Mahomes threw a touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce on a 20-yard completion. Mahomes went 4/6 with 69 passing yards and 1 passing touchdown on their final drive in the third quarter.


Denver got the ball back. Kansas City led 19-16 after three quarters of play.


Denver was stopped. Kansas City got the ball back. Patrick Mahomes threw a great third down conversion to Travis Kelce while he was pressured by weaving the football through traffic with Shelby Harris breathing down his neck.


Left tackle Eric Fisher and right tackle Mike Remmers gave Mahomes a clean pocket throughout this game. Mahomes completed another pass to set up a second and five. Darrell Willliams ran for a first down. Mahomes threw a completion to Sammy Watkins. Sammy Watkins was out weeks 6-12 before returning in week 13. The play was overturned and ruled an incomplete pass. Kareem Jackson broke up a pass intended for Travis Kelce. That set up a third and ten. A holding penalty negated a Patrick Mahomes touchdown pass to Tyreek Hll. Travis Kelce dropped a pass so Kansas City punted it to Denver.


Kansas City blanketed Jerry Jeudy. Brashad Breeland has dominated this matchup against Jeudy tonight. Denver dropped a third down pass as Drew Lock made a good throw, but K.J. Hamler dropped the pass.


Patrick Mahomes threw a first down to wide receiver Sammy Watkins. That completion put Mahomes at 300 passing yards for the night. Mahomes threw another completion to Watkins. Kansas City ran enough clock to get Denver to burn all of their timeouts. Harrison Butker is 4/4 on the night and improved to 5/5 on field goals after making that field goal. Kansas City led 22-16.


Tyrann Mathieu intercepted Drew Lock. Kansas City won this game 22-16.


Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes went 25/40 with 318 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions. Tyrann Mathieu had 2 interceptions. Harrison Butker went 5/5 on field goals.


All of those players are deserving of player of the game. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was my player of the game because he had 8 receptions, 136 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. He also had his fifth season of 1,000 receiving yards at tight end becoming the first tight end in NFL history to accomplish this feat.





Washington Football Team 5-7-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 11-1-0


Game Recap: PITTSBURGH-Washington headed to Pittsburgh. This may be the only meeting in NFL history between the Washington Football Team and the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Antonio Gibson got injured on the first drive in this game and broke his toe. Neither team scored in the first quarter due to how stingy both defenses were.

Jon Bostic made a fourth down stop in coverage to force a turnover on downs. Washington rallied and got a field goal.


Jon Bostic intercepted Ben Roethlisberger on the next drive. Washington got another field goal. The Washington Football Team won 23-17 making the Washington Football Team 1-0 All Time versus Pittsburgh if we exclude Washington's games against Pittsburgh when they were the Redskins.


Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith was my player of the game. Alex Smith went 31/46 with 296 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions.




Buffalo Bills 9-3-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 5-7-0


Game Recap: ARIZONA-San Francisco is ging to host the next two games at State Farm Stadium. This was a must win game for both teams.


Nick Mullens threw a touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. San Francisco led 7-0 after one quarter of play.

Dallas Cowboys 3-9-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 7-5-0


Game Recap: BALTIMORE-Mark Andrews was still out with Covid-19. Lamar Jackson and the rest of this team that missed the Pittsburgh game at Heinz Field returned.


Dallas scored first. A field goal and a 5/5 start gave Dallas a 3-0 lead. Baltimore still managed to outscore Dallas in every quarter in their 34-17 win over Dallas.


Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was my player of the game. Lamar Jackson became the first player in NFL history to have 5,000 passing yards and 2,500 rushing yards in his first three seasons in the NFL. This isn't quite as historic as Mahomes being the youngest quarterback to reach 10,000 career passing yards. This is still impressive though especially when you take into account that Lamar did that against Dallas without his star tight end or blindside at left tackle in Ronnie Stanley.
