Studs And Duds: NFL Week 16
By Brett Malamud
Two weeks left! This week has set up some pretty wild week 17 playoff scenarios. Here’s week 16’s edition of Studs and Duds:
Stud: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
It seems that Russell Wilson always brings his A-game when playing on national television. He did it again in week 16 against the Cardinals. Throwing for 339 yards and two touchdowns, Wilson was the definition of a stud. He also added 88 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.
Dud: Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
Luck was completely shut down by the Cowboys defense in week 16. Luck finished the game with 109 passing yards and two interceptions.
Stud: Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins
Tannehill had a stellar week 16, and finished with 396 passing yards and four touchdowns.
Dud: Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens
Flacco had a sub-par game. He threw three interceptions, and the Ravens took a bad loss to the Texans. The Ravens face the Browns in a must-win week 17 matchup.
Stud: Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants
Beckham Jr. continued his dominance over NFL defenses. The rookie had eight catches for 148 yards and two touchdowns.
Dud: Arizona Cardinals defenders
The Cardinals didn’t stand a chance against the Seahawks. The night was highlighted by an incredible 79 yard touchdown run by Marshawn Lynch.
Stud: Eli Manning, New York Giants
Manning delivered a great week 16 performance, finishing the game with 391 yards and three touchdowns.
Stud: Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
The final spot on this list will have some debate, but Tony Romo deserves it. Romo led the Cowboys to a huge victory over the Colts. Romo’s 218 yards and four touchdowns has kept Dallas in the running for a first round bye in the playoffs.
