Week 17 came and went, like the entire 2015 season: fast and furious. And as it was all year, few road teams came out alive. Only seven of 16 away squads ended the regular season on a victorious note Sunday, but that didn't mean they weren't a few outstanding performances left in the tank, including two from Greatness on the Road stalwarts.
Greatness on the Road winner
Brown piled up 10 catches in the first half alone en route to 187 yards off 13 grabs. Worthy of MVP consideration, Brown joins Hines Ward as the only Steeler with consecutive seasons of 10-plus touchdown catches during a campaign that saw him log an outrageous 136 receptions -- just seven behind Marvin Harrison's single-season record -- and 1,834 receiving yards.
Who is Steve Williams? Within the first 20 minutes of Sunday's close loss to the Broncos, the Mile High faithful found out. The Chargers cornerback tallied an interception, two forced fumbles and a sack all in the first half, contributing to San Diego's dominant defensive performance early and the Broncos' pulling of Brock Osweiler in the second half. Williams' fumble recovery off of a long Emmanuel Sanders reception deep in San Diego's red zone in the first quarter was especially impressive.
Yes, Kirk. We can't help but like that. Week 16's Greatness on the Road winner barely needed one half of football to get recognized in the season finale. Cousins tossed three touchdowns in the first quarter and completed 80 percent of his passes for 176 yards before getting the hook with 8:16 left in the second quarter. Cousins and the playoff-bound Redskins are riding high into their Wild Card matchup with the Packers. The only shame is that we won't see Cousins on next week's post. 'Til next time, sweet prince.
