Fourth String Quarterback
Here's riddle: The Jets activate three quarterbacks on Sunday and two players complete a pass during the game. None are named Tebow or Sanchez. Who then threw the ball aside of Greg McElroy? Well, the answer is a former high school quarterback and current Jets receiver Jeremy Kerley, who completed a 42 yard pass to Clyde Gates. Time to add another name to the Jets quarterback controversy.

One week after missing a game because of a knee, RG3 continues his magical season. The Redskins rookie threw for two touchdowns and helped lead Washington to a 27-20 victory over the Eagles. The Redskins stand atop the NFC East with one game remaining.

Wherefore art thou Romo
Tony Romo was 3-0 in December as a starter this season. And it looked as if he would continue his winning streak with game tying touchdown pass to Miles Austin with less than a minute remaining. But the Saints battled back. A 20-yard Garret Hartley field goal in overtime ended Romo's comeback bid.

A Tiger Rises
With a 13-10 win over the Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals are back in the playoffs for the second straight year. However, the Steelers who started 6-3, were eliminated after losing five of the last six. Somewhere someone is doing the Ickey Shuffle. And it isn't Terry Bradshaw.
No Place Like Home
The rumor was Tim Tebow heading to Jacksonville after the season. Not even that ray of hope could help the Jaguars this weekend. The New England Patriots beat them 23-16. The Jaguars are now 2-13. Tebowmania can't come any sooner.

Do You Feel Lucky
Luck be a quarterback named Andrew. Once again, the Colts precocious rookie concocts a fourth quarter victory. Luck hit Reggie Wayne with a 7-yard touchdown pass to give the Colts a 20-13 win over the Chiefs. We also forgot to mention he broke Cam Newton's single-season rookie passing record as well.
