FEDEX AIR -- QUARTERBACK CANDIDATES
Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens
In Week 14, Flacco faces a Minnesota Vikings defense that ranks No. 30 in the NFL against the pass. Flacco also is comfortable at the friendly confines of the Ravens' home stadium, compiling a 38-8 career record in home games.
Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
Manning leads the NFL in passing yards per game (343.8) and touchdowns (41). He has thrown for the most yards through the season's first 12 games since 1960 (4,125 yards, topping Drew Brees' 4,0131 yards in 2011).
Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions
FEDEX GROUND -- RUNNING BACK CANDIDATES
Steven Jackson, Atlanta Falcons
Jackson posted 23 rushes for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 13 win over the Buffalo Bills. Those numbers were all season-high totals. The defense of the Falcons' Week 14 opponent, the Green Bay Packers, against whom Jackson has 551 yards and two touchdowns in six career games.
DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys' Week 14 opponent, the Chicago Bears, sport the league's lowest-ranked rushing defense. That could mean a big day for Murray, who has the highest yards-per-rush average among all NFL running backs this season (4.9 yards).
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
Peterson is currently on pace for 1,611 yards rushing this season, and needs to average 198 yards a game over the season's final four games to reach 2,000 yards rushing this season.
