Bearcats In The NFL: Week 14

Kelce continued his dominance, while rookie Chris Moore made a huge play in prime time.

Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Even with Jeremy Maclin back in the Chiefs lineup, Kelce was still extremely productive in Kansas City’s win against the division leading Raiders. Kelce extended his streak of 100-yard receiving games to four with a five-reception, 101-yard performance. Despite his great reliability as of late, Kelce hasn't found the end zone in his last six games.

Derek Wolfe, DL, Denver Broncos

Wolfe is perhaps one of the most underrated defensive players in the NFL, overshadowed by big names such as Von Miller, Chris Harris and Aquib Talib. Wolfe proved once again why he is an anchor on the impressive Denver defense. He only had three tackles but continues a streak of great performances following an injury that is believed to not be fully healed just yet.

Connor Barwin, DL, Philadelphia Eagles

Barwin was held in check Sunday against the Washington Redskins, posting only an assisted tackle while playing a little more than half of the Eagles defensive snaps (52.1 percent). Barwin has been held without a sack the past four weeks.

Jason Kelce, OL, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles were once again held below 100 rushing yards due in large part because of inconsistent performances from the Philadelphia offensive line. With a rookie quarterback and some injuries at running back, Kelce needs to round the troops and put together a string of solid performances to end the season.

Trent Cole, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Cole looked back in the swing of things in only his second game back from a long term injury. Despite another subpar performance from the Colts defense as a whole, Cole was one of few bright spots, putting up four tackles and a sack. Trent saw his snap count go up once he became accustomed to game speed, going from a limited 44 percent to nearly two thirds of defensive snaps (63 percent) this week.

Ricardo Matthews, DL, Pittsburgh Steelers

Matthews had only one assisted tackle in the Steelers and Bills snow-filled matchup Sunday afternoon. Despite containing LeSean McCoy and the Bills run game early, the Steelers defense allowed the Bills to get back in the game through a few big runs and extended plays due to a lack of pressure from the Pittsburgh defensive line.

Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Despite being limited to only special teams snaps once again on Monday night, Moore had his presence felt at a key moment in the second half. The Ravens were down and struggling to get anything rolling until Moore recovered a muffed Patriots punt and returned it down to the 1-yard line. From then on, Baltimore began rolling and threatened a late comeback. Moore’s snap count once again rose, participating in 34% of the Ravens special teams snaps.

Kevin Huber, P, Cincinnati Bengals

Huber continued to play a huge role in the field position battle. Huber punted five times, averaging nearly 50 yards per kick (49.6), including an outstanding 72-yard boot. Huber also pinned the Browns inside the 20 twice.

Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders

Holton once again did not play an offensive snap on Thursday night against the Chiefs, but, as usual, he contributed through special teams, playing seven snaps on various special teams units (12.7 percent).

Mike Windt, LS, San Diego Chargers

Windt was in for five San Diego special teams snaps (7.2%) on Sunday afternoon.
