All of us know the NFL celebrities who generate SportsCenter high lights on a regular basis. Every week, even though, some performances make us say,”Who was ?”
It could be the undrafted rookie receiver who grabs along touchdown pass, the backup quarterback who piles up the journeyman linebacker who interrupts a victory with a major play.
This narrative is right for them.
Take a look at Week 16’s unheralded ballers, beginning with the veteran running back who moved from unsigned to Week 16’s leading rusher at 1 week and also the Falcons kicker who brought the boom.
C.J. Anderson, RB, La Rams
20 conveys, 167 yards, TD at 31-9 win over the Cardinals
Scoring Sunday, signed Tuesday.
— La Rams (@RamsNFL) December 2-3, 2018
Why it matters: Anderson is rather wellknown in NFL circles he also helped the Broncos to a Super Bowl title in 2015, and also the prior undrafted free agent was Denver’s lead back to most of his livelihood. But in 2018, most of those NFL chose he was done. He was cut by the Broncos, afterward by the Panthers, with whom he was a scarcely used backup, and by the Raiders after a one-week stint. The Rams — his fourth team of this season — signed him the other day, and then he awakened at a massive way for an injured Todd Gurley. Anderson revealed the value of perseverance, also he will soon be an important player for the Rams come play off time.
“very cheap! Very Low!”
— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) December 24, 2018
Why it matters: Kickers aren’t supposed to be on this list, and so they certainly aren’t supposed to create bone-chilling tackles. Don’t tell that to Bosher, who enthusiastic the Falcons with a crushing handle of Barner during his kickoff return. Bosher flexed then and said:”I went to Miami. It’s in me, I figure.” Barner had fun on it, also, clarifying the hit for a baptism on Twitter.
Game-winning fourth-quarter TD in relief of an injured Marcus Mariota at a 25-16 win over Washington
BLAINE GABBERT to MYCOLE PRUITT 😏#WASvsTEN
Why it matters: Mariota left late in the second quarter Tennessee down 10-6 at a must-win match. Gabbert directed the Titans to a fourth quarter comeback drive that ended with a 2-yard touchdown to tight end MyCole Pruitt, yet another backup, for the go-ahead score. The Titans continue to be in the playoff hunt because that they had a backup QB who may measure up and save the afternoon when their newcomer went down.
99-yard kickoff return TD at 44-38 OT loss to Packers
He was appointed to his first Pro Bowl a week, and he’ll have the chance to profit on his livelihood year this off season as he becomes a free agent.
Three grabs, 68 yards, such as a 49-yard TD at 44-38 OT win over the Jets
— Green Bay Packers (@packers) December 2-3, 2018
Why it matters: Kumerow grabbed his first career TD on Sunday, that was candies for the prior Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater player. We’ve seen Aaron Rodgers help lesser-known receivers excel before, and he helped Kumerow accomplish that on Sunday.
