If you see Cam Newton on a recumbent bicycle, please give him as much space as you would give any motorist.

In this week's SNF column for NBC sports, I take a look at Le'Veon Bell, why his rushing numbers may not be quite as good as you think, and how his value in the passing game makes up for it. Includes an "Oh, hey, here's why Todd Haley is doing this thing that doesn't seem to make sense" explanation.

Brian Hoyer: Out with a deep bruise to his right shoulder/bicep area.
Johnny Manziel: Out with a hamstring injury.
And so the Cleveland Browns' starting quarterback against Baltimore will be Connor Shaw, an undrafted rookie out of South Carolina who has spent 16 weeks on Cleveland's practice squad. Shaw will be the Browns' 22nd different starting quarterback in the past 16 years, joining such luminaries as Spergon Wynn, Ken Dorsey, and Thaddeus Lewis.
Shaw started for three years for the Gamecocks, twice finishing second in the SEC in completion percentage.

The Kansas City Chiefs' minuscule playoff odds have taken another hit. Starting quarterback Alex Smith will miss the must-win Week 17 game against San Diego with a lacerated spleen. Chase Daniel will start in Smith's place. It will be the second start of Daniels' career. The first? Week 17 last year, also against San Diego.

When it comes to player evaluation, seemingly minor issues often get magnified with the intensity of pressure. Utah State Chuckie Keaton’s performance versus Wake Forest is proof.

Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL, and should be the highest-paid. We can all agree on that. But this guest column by Kevin Kolbe explains why salaries for other quarterbacks are all out of whack.
