AH! The football season is almost over.
There is just one week left to the season and more records could possibly fall. However, this is also “junk time” for some teams that put in players who didn’t get a lot of playing time throughout the regular season.
Monday Morning Collector is back again (just a couple of days late due to the holiday).
Veteran of the Week
Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs – This is the year of injured running backs having a resurgence. After injuring his knee last season, Charles has had a great 2012 for the Chiefs capping it off with a 226-yard, one-touchdown performance in a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. That is the second time this year Charles broke the 200-yard mark.
(Note: I didn’t forget about Charles Johnson. He’s getting his own post later today)

Rookie of the Week
Bernard Pierce, RB, Baltimore Ravens – Even though one run set up the bulk of Peirce’s stats from this weekend, the Temple graduate put on an impressive show against the New York Giants. Pierce ran for 123 yards on 14 carries in 33-14 win – easily his best performance of the season.

Lance Kendricks, TE, St. Louis Rams — In two years, Kendricks had more than 50 receiving yards just twice, and never more than 100. That changed on Sunday when Kendricks caught four passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in a 28-13 win over Tampa Bay. Kendricks had a career-long TD for 80 yards in the game.
