Chargers running back Ryan Mathews had 13 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown. It was the second straight week Mathews cracked the 100-yard mark, and he has been much more productive this season than he was as a rookie.
Help, I'm surrounded
Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert continues to go through the growing pains of an NFL rookie quarterback, but in all fairness, he doesn't really have a go-to receiver yet.
Pound the ground

Chargers wide receiver Vincent Brown is unable to catch a pass in the end zone on this play, but he did finish with four grabs for 72 yards and a score.
Did it again
The Packers' Jordy Nelson had some big catches against the Giants. His biggest came in the fourth quarter when he helped set up Green Bay's game-winning field goal.

Vince Young is as shaky as ever
Much was made about Vince Young's late-game heroics after he led the Eagles past the Giants in place of the injured Michael Vick in Week 11, and Young passed for 400 yards the following week against the Pats. But on Thursday he was a train wreck, throwing four interceptions, including a backbreaking pick-six while trying to rally Philly in the closing minutes. Young appeared close to tears after that play — and then threw another pick on the Eagles' next possession to seal it. Think his confidence is shot?
Seahawks are a wild-card threat
With Tarvaris Jackson (7) completing 13 of 16 passes with no turnovers, Marshawn Lynch running for 148 yards and the defense forcing turnovers, Seattle's still alive at 5-7 with St. Louis up next as well as games at Chicago and Arizona, plus a home finale against the Niners.
Seattle's Marshawn Lynch flexes after scoring a 15-yard touchdown in Thursday's first quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles. Lynch also scored on a 40-yard run to open the second quarter.
