Bobby Rainey busts out to earn NFC honors

Bobby Rainey earned NFC Offensive Players of the Week honors after rushing for 163 yards and notching three touchdowns during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The Bucs are down their top two running backs — Doug Martin and Mike James — because of injury. The once-unknown Rainey stepped up admirably, however. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry on 30 carries. The rookie out of Western Kentucky had not had Cheap Miami Dolphins Jerseys more than eight carries in an NFL game until Sunday.

Jason Butt of Baltimore Beatdown has alluded to the storm delay killing Green Bay Packer Cheap Jerseys momentum for the Ravens:

It was a bizarre game, given multiple storm cells were coming through the Midwest. After the Ravens jumped out to a 10-0 lead, the game was halted for one hour and 53 minutes due to inclement weather. Before the stoppage in play, the Ravens possessed a great deal of momentum.

Ray Rice had already scored a touchdown and had a 47-yard run in the process, his longest of the season. Justin Tucker had just kicked a field goal with the wind swirling before the referees called for the suspension in play.
Dane Noble of Windy City Gridiron says the Bears are winning despite their injuries:

One thing that should be in the forefront of every single sane Chicago Bears fan: This team is limping along with lots and lots of backups in their starting lineup, including some who wouldn’t have even been on the active roster if not for significant injuries.

Just think of all the starters that have gone down due to injury before you judge the performance of this team too harshly…
