NFL Week Twelve Recap And Week Thirteen Preview And Tips

By Ian John
November 29, 2022

It’s strange to think that we have now had 12 weeks of the NFL season and we are now officially two-thirds of the way through the regular season.

We have just two more bye weeks coming up and then every team will be in action over Weeks 15, 16, 17 and 18 of the season, with plenty still very much in with a shout at the playoffs.

Remember, you can enjoy great betting on the NFL throughout the regular season and playoffs with bet365 Sport, which offers fantastic pre-game and In Play betting on all NFL matches.

With three games on Thanksgiving Thursday this week, several teams had a short week, but many made the most of it with some interesting stories from what happened over Thursday and the weekend.

NFL Matchday 12 – Main Stories

Hurts Sets New QB Rushing Record In Eagles Shootout Win – Jalen Hurts produced a record-breaking performance when he rushed for a QB record of 157 yards and added 153 yards passing with two touchdowns to inspire the Eagles to a hard-fought win over the Green Bay Packers. However, the gloss was taken off the Eagles win by an injury to safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson who will miss significant time with a lacerated kidney.

Bengals Down Titans In Key Win In AFC – They may have not been the top ranked two teams in the AFC, but this was a crucial game in the shakeup for the playoffs in that Conference and once again the Bengals came into Tennessee and emerged with the win. Defenses were on top for much of the game with the decisive factor being the Bengals ability to keep Derrick Henry under wraps. That led the Bengals to clinch the win.

Jaguars Clinch Dramatic Win With 2-pt Conversion & Ravens FG Miss – The most dramatic finish to a game came in Jacksonville and once again it was another example of the Baltimore Ravens grasping defeat from the jaws of victory. Holding a 2-score lead in the fourth, the Jags scored a TD to pull things level before forcing a fumble and recovering on the Ravens first possession afterwards. A field goal put the Jags back in charge but the Ravens scored to increase their lead back to seven. Trevor Lawrence went down the field and hit a touchdown in reply and then Doug Petersen went for two and landed it. However, Justin Tucker could have won the game for Baltimore as time expired but his 66 yard field goal fell just yards short handing the Jags an unlikely win.

Chargers Defeat Cardinals With Last Gasp 2-pt Conversion – After trailing for most of the game, the Los Angeles Chargers finally had the chance come back. With a first and goal at the Cardinals 1 yard line with 18 seconds left. Austin EKeler landed the touchdown to make it 24-23 and the Bolts had a choice, kick the extra point to tie the game and force overtime, or go for two and win. Brandon Staley went for two and Herbert found Gerald Everett wide open for the 2 points to claim an unlikely victory.

NFL Star Performers of the Week – Offense/ST

  • WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (Lions) – 9 receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown
  • WR Justin Jefferson (Vikings) – 9 receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown
  • QB Mac Jones (Patriots) – 28/39 for 382 yards and 2 touchdowns
  • WR Tee Higgins (Bengals) – 7 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown
  • QB Mike White (Jets) – 22/28 for 315 yards and 3 touchdowns
  • RB Nick Chubb (Browns) – 26 carries for 116 yards and a touchdown
  • QB Trevor Lawrence (Jaguars) – 29/37 for 321 yards and 3 touchdowns
  • WR Zay Jones (Jaguars) – 11 receptions for 145 yards
  • RB Josh Jacobs (Raiders) – 33 carries for 229 yards and 2 touchdowns
  • QB Justin Herbert (Chargers) – 35/47 for 274 yards and 3 touchdowns
  • QB Jalen Hurts (Eagles) – 16/28 for 153 yards & 2 TD, 157 yards rushing.

NFL Star Performers Of The Week – Defense

  • San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers have long had a top qualify defense and they have shown glimpses of that talent this season. This week was one of them as they held the Saints scoreless in a tight and defensive game, allowing just 204 yards passing and 63 yards rushing. Kaden Elliss 12 tackles with 2 assists being the standout individual performance in what was a great team effort on defense.
  • Buffalo Bills – The Bills defense may have shipped 25 points in a much closer expected win in Detroit but with their offense stuttering a little against a strong Lions defensive effort, it took a safety in the third quarter to turn the game decisively in their favour and even then the Bills still needed two fumble recoveries to ice the win over the course of the game.
  • Cincinnati Bengals – The Bengals went into Tennessee to take on the fearsome Titans offense led by Derrick Henry and they managed to restrict the Titans running back to just 38 yards on 17 carries. They even forced a fumble on Henry only for Treylon Burks to recover the ball for the touchdown. However that Bengals effort on defense laid the foundations for their eventual win against the Titans.
  • Washington Commanders – The Commanders held the Falcons offense to just 13 points and one touchdown in the entire game, which made up for their own shortcomings on offense. Kendall Fuller’s interception was a key moment in the game but it was a team effort on defense which kept the Falcons out and saw the Commanders move to an impressive 7-5.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers – The Steelers sacked Matt Ryan three times and intercepted him once to lay the foundations for their 24-17 victory over the Colts. Once again it was very much a team effort on defence against the Colts that led to the win which keeps the Steelers faint hopes of a Playoff spot alive.

NFL Rookies Of The Week

  • WR Christian Watson (Packers) – 4 receptions, 110 yards and a touchdown
  • RB Brian Robinson (Commanders) – 105 rushing yards & receiving touchdown
  • WR Garrett Wilson (Jets) – 5 receptions for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns
  • WR Jelani Woods (Colts) – 8 receptions for 98 yards
  • RB Rachaad White (Buccaneers) – 64 yards rushing, 45 yards receiving
  • OLB James Houston (Lions) – 2 tackles plus 2 sacks
  • S Jalen Pitre (Texans) – 7 tackles

NFL Key Injuries

  • RB Travis Etienne (Jaguars) – Foot injury and was not able to play rest of game.
  • WR Allen Robinson (Rams) – Foot injury, requires surgery and will miss season.
  • RB Michael Carter (Jets) – Sprained ankle and questionable for next game.
  • S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (Eagles) – Lacerated kidney and is out indefinitely.
  • RB Elijah Mitchell (49ers) – Possible MCL – could miss several weeks.
  • OT Tristan Wirfs (Buccaneers) – Foot injury – Questionable for weekend game.
  • C Corey Linsley (Chargers) – Concussion, Will be under protocols this week.
  • RB Brandon Bolden (Raiders) – Calf injury. Questionable for next week.
  • CB Arnold Ebiketie (Falcons) – Forearm injury, questionable to play next weekend.

NFL Bonehead Play of The Week

It wasn’t the final play of a crazy game, but there is no doubt that Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards’ fumble in the fourth quarter was absolutely vital in turning the momentum of the game in the favour of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Edwards had previously scored a touchdown to put the Ravens 19-10 up in the game, but the Jaguars marched downfield in their next play to score a touchdown to cut the deficit to two.

The Ravens were now starting to move the ball on the Jags defence but on their first possession, Edwards fumbled at the 10-yard line, allowing Campbell to recover the ball at the Baltimore 16 from which the Jags scored a go ahead field goal.

The Ravens scored again after the play, but the Jags snatched the win with a touchdown and 2-point conversion and Justin Tucker’s 66 yard field goal attempt fell just short as the Ravens went down to a sickening defeat.
