5 NFL Stats to Know Through Week 12
Week 12 is in the books, and we can all be thankful for another excellent week of NFL action.
It kicked off on Thanksgiving Day with Case Keenum leading the Minnesota Vikings to victory over the Detroit Lions, Keenan Allen running circles around the Dallas Cowboys, and the Washington Redskins handing the New York Giants their ninth loss of the season.
Then on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles held the Chicago Bears to just three points, the Cleveland Browns continued their losing streak and the Los Angeles Rams' offense got back on track with 26 points versus the New Orleans Saints. To cap the day off, Brett Hundley turned his game around with a surprising three-touchdown performance as the Green Bay Packers narrowly fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
